Thanksgiving 2023

Happy Thanksgiving From the Chairman!

It is with the utmost joy and gratitude that I remember the settlers that came to America. Their endurance through perils at sea, the desire to quell the divisions that arose during their 2 month travel, and the dedication these families had during the first winter here in America. The 102 travelers on the Mayflower in the fall of 1620 came with perseverance for the hope that was in them that they may expand to the far reaches of the earth.

What, or why did they desire such expansion? As we are reminded of their sacrifice, hardships, pains, and even the death of almost half of them that first winter, I seek to remind my fellows of the purpose of the 41 men who submitted themselves under their first governing document as settlers known as the Mayflower Compact.

In the name of God, Amen. We whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our
dread sovereign lord King James, by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and
Ireland King, Defender of the Faith, etc.
Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and
honor of our king and country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of
Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually in the presence of God and one of
another, covenant, and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic, for our better
ordering and preservation, and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to
enact, constitute, and frame such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions,
offices from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general
good of the colony: unto which we promise all due submission and obedience. In witness
whereof we have hereunder subscribed our names; Cape Cod, the 11th of November, in the
year of the reign of our sovereign lord King James, of England, France and Ireland
eighteenth and of Scotland fifty-fourth, Anno Domini 1620.

These men came with the supposition that they would settle in the new land and, for the glory of God, advance the Christian faith. Not all of the settlers made it through the winter that year, and many did not make it through the first couple months, including women and children. With each undertaking of the men of our past, there came trials and tribulations that were not foreseen. Thanks to the natives, these settlers were shown what could be grown, harvested, and eaten in the new land to survive. It was not but 154 years later, their posterity separated from the very governing body that their father’s had sought to expand and it became a new body politic, the united States of America.

Though we have much to be thankful for in this season, we must remember to Whom we are giving thanks. For without a recipient, our thanks is in vain. As we sit down with our families,
or help serve our communities this day, let us not forget where the direction of our thanks should lay. Our framers of this nation made clear to whom they gave the glory and thanks, and
as new States came to form, each had their own way of expressing the same. Here are a few examples, though not close to a complete list of all the people’s references…

USTPM Chairman


I once volunteered for an hour a week to stand on a curb holding a pro-life sign. On one side of
the street was an abortion clinic. On the other side was a bus stop. Several times during my
time at the post, City of Lansing buses went past (Socialist Buses). Every bus had a driver.
Some of the buses had a passenger or 2 or 3.

Years ago, driving in Lansing, we occasionally would see a Socialist Bus. I always asked my
wife to take a look at it as we went by to see if the bus had more passengers or drivers. It was a
toss up.

In the productive sector (privately owned buses) operating losses come out of the owners'
pockets. The owners quickly learn not to send buses on any route unless there are enough
prospective riders to pay the cost of running a bus on that route.

We propose that in any transportation system operated by any unit of government, that all
expenses of operating that transportation system, including an ADEQUATE provision for the
currently earned portion of future pension and any other retirement benefits, be allocated
among and charged to currently elected executive and legislative officials of the appropriate unit
REVENUES. Losses on the Socialist Buses should be borne by and paid for by the responsible
elected officials!

State Ownership of Utilities using a Constitutional Amendment

On November 29, 2022, Rep. Rabhi introduced House Joint Resolution Y, which proposes an amendment to the state constitution of 1963, by amending sections 15 and 29 of article VII and adding section 31 to article V, to create a state public utility. It has been referred to the Energy Committee.

The state would create a public utility and a subsequent public utility board. This board would then purchase or acquire all of the electric and natural gas generation, distribution, or transmission facilities owned by any investor-owned utility in this state by eminent domain. This means the state will come and forcibly remove your property from your possession if you are an owner or shareholder in any of the above utilities, and it is completely legal as long as they give you compensation.

With the acquisition of all public utilities, now the state can set all rates, fares, fees, charges, services, rules, conditions of service, and all other matters pertaining to the formation, operation, or direction of the state public utility; and they can arbitrarily establish lower rates for low-income residential customers, which they are already claiming they will do.

Now the state is free to eliminate fossil fuels and build across this state accessible, rapid-charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, making rapid investments in the distribution network in Michigan. With this goal, there is nothing standing in the way to stop the state from eliminating fossil fuel energy in Michigan, leaving most of us in a very bad situation.

Further, according to this resolution, a person, partnership, association, or corporation, public or private entity, operating a public utility will not have the right to any highways, streets, alleys, or other public places of any county, township, city, or village for wires, poles, pipes, tracks, conduits, or other utility facilities, without the consent of the duly constituted authority of the county, township, city, or village; nor will they have the right to transact local business within a county, township, city, or village without first obtaining a franchise from the county, township, city, or village.

The state public utility established in section 31 of 6 article V will have the right to use the highways, streets, alleys, or other public places of any county, township, city, or village for wires, poles, pipes, tracks, conduits, or other utility facilities, without the consent of the duly constituted authority of the county, township, city, or village. The state public utility established in section of article V will not need to obtain a franchise to transact business in a county, township, city, or village.

This resolution is very dangerous and unconstitutional. Eminent domain, while currently legal, is a gray area to begin with and has, in the past, been used to deprive citizens of their rightful property. In addition, this resolution would essentially allow the state to dictate who can and cannot obtain services and use roads. Not only does this create a monopolistic situation, it is a violation of the local governmental rights by the state, and the citizens’ rights by extension.

Call your representative today and tell him or her that you want this resolution to never see the light of day.

2022 USTPM Campaign Committee Report

Following the results of the November 8th General Election in Michigan, we have good news, and we have bad news.

The bad news is that the USTPM placed sixteen candidates on the ballot, and all lost. Four additional candidates were rejected by the Bureau of Elections because of filing discrepancies, and were not even on the ballot. Of the eventual sixteen, another four also had discrepancies, but were retained by swift action of the Campaign Committee to resolve their issues.

The actual voting results are under review by election authorities. Several USTPM candidates find the results unbelievable and are not conceding defeat in their races. A case in point, at the top of the USTPM ticket, Donna Brandenburg, our candidate for Governor, had been the most formidable candidate of the Party in recent history. She out-spent and out-hustled the Party’s last three gubernatorial candidates, yet suspiciously mustered only a fraction of their total votes. Whether or not a sufficient amount of corrections are found to change the election results, justice must be served, and those who ever perpetrate fraud must be held accountable.

The good news is the USTPM has successfully maintained ballot access for the next election cycle. According to Michigan Compiled Laws (MCL) 168.560a, a political party’s principal candidate must receive at least one percent (1%) of the vote total of the winning Secretary of State candidate to maintain it. The 2022 SOS winner is Jocelyn Benson, with 2,467,859 votes, making the 1% threshold equal to 24,678 votes. And congratulations go to Mr. Joe Sanger, who is the USTPM top vote-getter at 71,506 votes!

Here are the USTPM vote results for 2022:

Donna Brandenburg, Governor - 16.246 votes (0.36%)
Christine Schwartz, Secretary of State - 27,937 votes (0.63%)
Gerald T. Van Sickle, Attorney General - 32,431 votes (0.74%)
Ethan Hobson, State Board of Education - 48,248 votes (0.59%)
Joe Sanger, U of M Regent - 71,506 votes (0.89%)
Marc Joseph Sosnowski, WSU Governor - 71,488 votes (0.91%)
Curtis Clark, 4th Congressional District - 2244 votes, (0.66%)
Ezra Scott, 5th Congressional District - 3162 votes (1.00 %)
Christopher Dardzinski, 13th Congressional District - 2769 votes (1.18%)
Victoria McCasey, 22nd State Senate District - 1198 votes (0.87%)
Matthew J. Shepard, 28th State Senate District - 2635 votes (2.24%)
Becky McDonald, 34th State Senate District - 2682 votes (2.42%)
John Tatar, Wayne County Sheriff - 39,319 votes (7.44%)
Timothy Sears, Houghton County Commission 2nd District - 246 votes (7.2%)
Jeff McDonald, Gladwin County Commission 1st District - 297 votes (12.4%)
William Mohr II, Kent City School Board - 493 votes (9.93%)

Some may find this interesting. The horrendous ballot proposal (No. 3), titled Reproductive Freedom For All, solidified abortion as a constitutional right in Michigan, as well as removed parental controls over sexual and gender issues of their children in school. It passed by the vote total of 56.66% – could it be another mark of the beast?

The devotion of USTPM members is needed now more than ever. You can depend on our candidates to be God-fearing, but such candidates may only come forward and rise to this challenge if asked …. who do you know?
