2021 Spring Convention Results

The US Taxpayers Party 2021 Spring Convention was held this past Saturday in Corunna, Michigan. The purpose of the Spring Convention is to elect party leadership; the State Central Committee.  Platform hearings were also a big part of this convention.

Results:

Chairman - William Mohr
1st Vice Chairman - Christine Schwartz
2nd Vice Chairman - Marc Sosnowski

A majority of the Districts are now also represented with State Central Committee Members

The convention Delegates passed two new and key platform statements regarding, 1) The abuse of powers in emergency situations, and, 2) The need for government to legislate in accordance with God's nature and morality.  Read these below.

23.  Emergency Management Agencies used to Undermine the Constitution

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and its associated state outlets have been opposed by constitutional advocates from their inception. By their emergency declarations these unconstitutional coups bypass elected officials, endorsed laws, standing courts and American citizens, which constitute the real and legal authority, in order to mandate a false authority, and seize power. As crises are manufactured or overblown, pieces of American liberty are stolen and freedom is eroded.

The FEMA declarations are often compared to war powers acts used by past presidents in times of war. These war powers declarations were much debated in their times, and not accepted as constitutionally viable by all, even looking back through the arch of history. States have always helped counties or municipalities in times of emergency by giving extra funding and resources to the local authorities. This is a sufficient means of dealing with all local and state crises by a Constitutional Republic. No federal agency is necessary for domestic emergencies.

The Department of Homeland Security is another consolidation of power by centralizing the various executive agencies under one supra authority like unto a Gestapo or KGB. The organization of such a federal power was done under the threat of terrorism but was an excuse to begin monitoring loyal American citizens and hence labeling their private political leanings and connections. Much detail has come out in the last two decades about the unauthorized collection of data on patriotic tax paying Americans by their own government. This is an act of the invasion of privacy.

The World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control are global and federal agencies respectively that closely coordinate to study, treat and prevent human diseases. The global institutions have no jurisdiction in the United States of America and may be used to actually infiltrate and undermine this country's sovereignty. Furthermore, the CDC should be abolished. As it currently exists, it should be used as a resource for local, state and federal legislatures as they seek to make and execute law regarding public well being. These organizations do not have the authority to issue illegal orders or mandate their enforcement.

Covid-19 mandated shutdowns and social behaviors are akin to medical tyranny. The origin, spread and response to this virus has been manipulated by the aforementioned organizations along with the media to foment fear and seize a power that the Constitution does not give them. Political manipulation of artificial crises and the subsequent use of usurped authority is a real evil and should be rejected by all free peoples. It has been used to contaminate an election, corral free speech, and limit the free movement of Americans. The inadequate response by one party, and the wholesale use of crisis by another party motivate the US Taxpayers Party to reject the unethical use of medicine as a form of tyranny.


24. In God We Trust

In God we trust is still the official motto of the United States of America. These words are cast in stone above the podium in the House of Representatives for all US Representatives to see as they legislate. These words are printed on every coin and bill used for money in the United States.

The preamble of the Constitution of the State of Michigan references gratitude to “Almighty God for the blessings of freedom” and declares the very purpose for the Constitution to retain those blessings for ourselves and posterity. The constitutions of almost every state in the country contain a similar reference to God. Though not allowing for a specific religion, denomination or set of doctrinal beliefs being established, many states do not allow anyone to hold public office if they deny the existence of God or a supreme being.

There are thousands of statements recorded by our Founding Fathers referencing the need for public acknowledgement of God.

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams

“Shall we live as if we and our country were self-dependant and had nothing to do with the Supreme Ruler of the universe? Can an army of saints or of heroes defend an obnoxious people, ripe for destruction, from the righteous judgement of God?” Samuel Davies

“God forbid that the day should ever arrive when there should be a separation of pure morality and deep religious conviction from our public places of education.” George Bancroft

The Founding Fathers understood that religion is a key ingredient in any society to maintain freedom and this has been clearly demonstrated by our progressive loss of freedoms since the Supreme Court unlawfully removed prayer from public schools in 1963. As government increasingly legislates in opposition to these principles and government officials, judges and various unelected officials in departments of government attack the Church and our responsibility to publicly acknowledge God, we see not only our freedoms being depleted, but confusion being added in society.

The US Taxpayers Party of Michigan calls on government to comply with the Constitution once again by acknowledging God in law and public policy by legislating in accordance with the laws of God’s nature and morality. This is a necessary function of civil government and crucial to, as our Constitution dictates, ensuring the blessings of freedom.
