Our Position On Energy Independence

For the sake of our national security -- for every American family that is paying the price at the pump -- and for every American tired of hearing past and present administrations proclaim how they will bring our energy crisis under control, we will finally break our addiction to foreign oil. The ARP will commit to take the required steps to bring an end to our total dependency on oil and move our country toward the use of clean and renewable energy. We will commit to fast-track our efforts and provide the necessary investment in the clean energy sectors of our economy. We must invest in these new and emerging technologies here in this country to insure jobs in America. This transition to a clean-energy industry will further benefit all-income communities by immediately creating millions of badly need jobs throughout the industry. To achieve success and reach our goal of independence from foreign oil during this transition period, we must balance our use of existing energy resources with our impact on our environment.

We recognize that any transition of this magnitude will require a sweeping, common sense, approach in making certian interim eviornmental concessions plus modifications to State and Federal laws and regulations over the next 15 years.  We must begin by tapping into our existing and readily available coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear reserves and resources while our private sector develop and deploy the necessary clean-energy technology at reasonably affordable costs. We'll dramatically increase the fuel efficiency of automobiles, and we'll help auto manufacturers and parts suppliers convert to build the cars and trucks of the future and their 18 key components in the United States. We will work with and help industry, small business, managers and workers learn the skills they need to compete in an energy efficient economy. We are committed to getting at least 25 percent of our electricity from renewable sources by 2025.

We will crack down on speculators who are driving up prices beyond the natural market rate. We will direct the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice to vigorously investigate and prosecute market manipulation in oil futures. And we will help those who are hit hardest by high energy prices by increasing funding for low-income heating assistance and affective weatherizing programs, and by providing energy assistance to help middle-class families make ends meet in this time of inflated energy prices.

In the past, America has been stirred to action when faced with new threats to our national security, or new competitive conditions that undercut our economic leadership. The energy threat we face today may be less immediate than threats from dictators, but it is as real and as dangerous. The dangers are eclipsed only by the opportunities that would come with moving our country to self-dependent, renewable clean energy.

Humanity is imprisoned by a killer pandemic. People are being arrested for surfing in the ocean and meditating in nature. Nations are collapsing. Hungry citizens are rioting for food. The media has generated so much confusion and fear that people are begging for salvation in a syringe. Billionaire patent owners are pushing for globally mandated vaccines. Anyone who refuses to be injected with experimental poisons will be prohibited from travel, education and work. No, this is not a synopsis for a new horror movie. This is our current reality.

Do You want an Electoral College Or Dictatorship?


What Is and Why, we need the Electoral College.

I know this may be difficult for most liberals to grasp but we'll try anyway.

Using the latest Census data, it was determined that half of the United States population is clustered in just 146 of the biggest counties out of over 3000 in the US.

As indicated in the below map, only 50% of the American population lives in the gray shaded counties on this map while 50% is concentrated in the remaining blue counties of each respective State..

Now the Electoral College is comprised as follows: Each State gets 1 Electoral vote for each Senator and 1 for…

If whoever gets the nomination for president, and whoever gets elected president, doesn't understand that if legal status with birthright citizenship is granted to just half of the 12 million illegals, they will be a 750 million majority, with voting rights, in three generations.

Their religion/culture encourages large families (whether they can support them or not).  With an average of 5 children per family, they will go from 6 million to 30 million in one generation.  From 30 million to 150 million in two generations.  From 150 million to a 750 million majority with voting rights…

The Constitutional Amendment Process


ARParty : June 20, 2016

The authority to amend the Constitution of the United States is derived from Article V of the Constitution. After Congress proposes an amendment, the Archivist of the United States, who heads the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), is charged with responsibility for administering the ratification process under the provisions of 1 U.S.C. 106b. The Archivist has delegated many of the ministerial duties associated with this function to the Director of the Federal Register.

Both Obama and his sidekick Joe Biden are totally delusional when suggesting more strict gun laws will better control ISIS and homeland terror killings. It is this thought process or should I say lack of thought, that possess the greatest threat to National Security and the lives of all Americans. They NEVER should have been elected and let's not elect their surrogate Hillary Clinton.
