Keep you money, I want your vote.
I’m not accepting monetary donations because I’d rather have your vote. I’d rather you told four or five friends about my run.
Edward Fish For Senate
I have recently decided to run for one of New Mexico’s seats in the US Congress.
Why should I be interested in supporting you?
My platform is very simple, consisting of only two or three* points:
Constitutionalism: The Constitution for the United States should be treated as the supreme law of the land.
Justice: Having a Just government is imperative not only to the peace and stability of the country, but to the legitimacy of the government itself.
Anti-Corruption: It seems to me that a great many of our laws are optimized to foster and facilitate corruption (especially tax- and campaign-laws).
For these reasons my goals in the District of Columbia are to repeal and simplify many of the current Federal laws; to reign in abusive and out-of-control agencies like the NSA and their blatantly unconstitutional domestic espionage program; and to propose these constitutional amendments.**
Are you a Democrat or a Republican?
Both the Republican- and the Democrat-Party are all-talk and no action.
The Republican party bills itself as for government accountability and fiscal responsibility… yet what did they do in response to the NSA’s espionage program? Nothing. And when the Debt ceiling was reached, did they as-a-party push for expenditures to be cut rather than the debt ceiling to be increased? Nope.
Likewise the Democrat party bills itself as for the working-man… but did the Democrat party push against the H1B visa fraud scams that are so prevalent in the technology industry? Nope. And let’s not forget the collusion and conspiracy the party did to promote Hillary Clinton above Bernie Sanders.
So, which party are you running under?
I’ll run under whichever party will take me. — Given my platform I don’t imagine I’ll “make friends” in the Senate, precisely because a lot of people, even in the Senate, are benefiting from the current culture of corruption.
* — Justice and Anti-corruption could be considered the same thing.
** — Tax reform, balanced budget, term-limits, etc.
This is my most popular brochure, to date. It seems to accurately portray the mindset of an uncomfortably large portion of law-enforcement officers as well as showing why the government seems to push for ever more gun-control.
Here is the latest revision of amendments to the Constitution for the United States that I would recommend and the reasoning thereof.
A poem about a noble, yet inanimate lamp-post, who is instrumental in wresting freedom from the hands of tyrants:
(Extensively sourced because our education system is so poor that someone’ll be sure to say that this is a threat w/o realizing the historical [and current] references.)
I’ve decided to put down some of my thoughts on how to better design the architecture that underlies a command-line interface. Given that the CLI systems we have now are horribly designed and force a lot more work onto utility programmers. (These deficiencies can be easily traced to the OS and how little it provides to actually facilitate a good solution to these problems.)
The short version is that the IPC should be done using streams of typed values, and that user-commands (of utilities) should be handled discretely and independent of the data-stream.
Earlier (in 2014) I had the idea that the current ‘push’ being engineered was towards a sort of de facto caste system where the traditional Rights of the Englishman and, as the foundations for American citizen’s rights, the traditional Rights that Americans have enjoyed.
We see this more and more as the government “picks winners and losers” by deciding to bail out businesses that would otherwise fail at the expense of taxpayers, ignoring every taxpayer who says “enough is enough” and continuing to sell its Citizens into a real slavery — $20 Trillion, and more, which is secured by the promise of the Citizen’s future earnings (i.e. the income tax) with no intention of ever paying it back is nothing less.
As this continues we will see more and more codification of exemptions from the law to government agents, from the President down to the street-cop, to city employees to Congressmen. This is the world that they want: to be at the top, crushing down on the insignificant (you and I), lording their positions and power over us.
Here’s a write-up detailing how the federal government is itself guilty of violating RICO laws:

It is both my pleasure and extreme displeasure to have the first post of this blog be about treason as perpetrated by the Senate; it is pleasurable because it is a deeply interesting subject, displeasure because it illustrates & proves just how little our Senators care about our country and, by extension, us.
So, without further ado, I present to you a case of treason:
