2. EVEN THE NEW YORK TIMES RECOGNIZES THE STUPIDITY OF NJ?S UNCONSTITUTIONAL STATE DEBT. Go to: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/08/sp…er=rss&emc=rss. The article begins: ? The old Giants Stadium, demolished to make way for New Meadowlands Stadium, still carries about $110 million in debt, or nearly $13 for every New Jersey resident, even though it is now a parking lot. The financial hole was dug over decades by politicians who passed along the cost of building and fixing the stadium, and it is getting deeper. With the razing of the old stadium and the Giantsand the Jets moving into their splashy new home next door, a big source of revenue to pay down the debt has shriveled. . . Taxpayers in New Jersey, already under pressure from declining local government revenues, this year will pay $35.8 million in principal and interest on the $266 million in remaining bonds for the Meadowlands Sports Complex, which opened in 1976 and includes the Izod Center and a horse racing track. These bonds will not be paid until 2025.?
THERE IS NO LEGAL OR MORAL REASON TO PAY THIS DEBT. THIS DEBT WAS NEVER APPROVED BY VOTERS AS REQUIRED BY THE STATE CONSTITUTION. SEE OUR BASIC PRINCPLE #VI. ASK DEMOCRAT SENATORS WHELAN AND VAN DREW, AND ASSEMBLYMEN ALBANO AND MILAM WHY THEY VOTE TO PAY THIS UNCONSTITUTIONAL DEBT YEAR AFTER YEAR! ASK REPUBLICAN ASSEMBLYMEN POLISTINA AND AMODEO WHY THEY DO THE SAME. WILL ANYBODY RUN AGAINST ANY OF THESE PEOPLE IN NEXT YEAR?S JUNE PRIMARY ELECTION?
3. SEPTEMBER LIBERTY MOVIE: ?The Stoning of Soraya M.” Monday September 20th at 6:00pm at the Mays Landing Library, 40 Farragut Avenue Mays Landing. The chilling true story of a woman in Iran falsely charged, and sentenced to brutal death. Winner of the Toronto International Film Festival. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWbdn5YfMJs
4. Liberty and Prosperity Ten Core Principles for 2010:
I. No eminent domain for private gain.
II. Enforce federal immigration laws. No amnesty. Deport illegal aliens.
III. Make tax and zoning laws fair, simple, and apply them equally to everyone.
IV. Cut taxes by cutting government spending.
V. Post all government salaries, contracts and budgets online.
VI. Repudiate (refuse to pay) all state government debts incurred without voter approval in violation of our State Constitution. Repudiate all federal government debts incurred for purposes not permitted by Article I, Section 8 of our Federal Constitution.
VII. Bring “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” back to our public schools and local governments. Let parents apply taxpayer money spent to educate their children to the qualified schools they choose. Don’t force public employees to pay dues to unions they don’t want to join. Let elected officials again decide what salaries, pensions, and benefits to pay our public “servants”.
VIII. Hold frequent non-binding referendums (public votes) on all issues of public importance.
IX. Term limits for all elected officials. Pensions for none.
X. Audit, reform or abolish the Federal Reserve Banking System and have Congress establish a stable currency secured by precious metals or assets with recognized and stable values. Have the United States withdraw from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and any organization which purports to require the U.S. Government to spend money without appropriation by Congress pursuant to the U.S. Constitution.
