FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Libertarian campaigns in King William

Speaking to the King William T.E.A. Party on Thursday evening, U.S. Senate Candidate Matt Waters criticized his Republican and Democratic opponents for fighting over petty issues while intentionally ignoring the skyrocketing National Debt. “It's rapidly approaching twenty two trillion dollars now and growing out of control,” he said, adding that “our children's share is more than sixty five thousand dollars each !”

Waters, running on the Libertarian ticket for the seat currently held by Democrat Senator Tim Kaine, addressed a variety of financial issues as well as his views on civil liberties, immigration reform, the impending bankruptcy of the Social Security program, and social issues. He is calling for an end to the Federal Income tax, abolishing the I.R.S and abolishing payroll tax withholding. “People should have to write a check to pay their taxes, then they would be demanding spending cuts.“

Responding to the pointed question of why vote for a Libertarian who has little chance of winning, Waters pulled no punches. “It's insanity to keep voting for Republicans or Democrats, there's no real difference in how they actually govern.”

“The Libertarian message is the right message and this is the right time,” he said. “I'm asking for your support to chart a new way forward for all Americans – grounded in the tenets of 'life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.' “

The King William T.E.A Party does not formally endorse any candidate for national state or local office. Information at www.kwteaparty.com , Facebook and www.MattWaters.com

Standing in front of a big screen showing the astronomical $21 trillion National Debt running up in real time, Matt Waters, candidate for U.S. Senate from Virginia, explained the Libertarian Party's proposals based on Constitutional principles and a return to financial sanity.

Sept 5, 2018

Wharton's Olivia Mitchell and Leora Friedberg of the University of Virginia discuss the $4.4 trillion public sector pension shortfall.

Not Enough time, Not Enough Money

Sanitation workers, firefighters, teachers and other state and local government employees have performed their duties in the public sector for decades with the understanding that their often lackluster salaries were propped up by excellent benefits, including an ironclad pension. But Moody’s Investors Service recently estimated that public pensions are underfunded by $4.4 trillion. That amount, which is equivalent to the economy of Germany, accounts for one-fifth of national debt. It’s a significant concern for public employees who were banking on a fully funded retirement to get them through their golden years.

Convention of States

Who is Publius Huldah? She is the writer of the flyer below. She is US Army JAG, retired, Joanna Martin.

Some of you met her at the Spotlight on Special Americans speaker event in March. There could be some candidates currently running for office who support a convention of states. You might want to ask them if they support a Constitutional Convention. We need candidates and elected officials to defend our Constitution!

The Nightmare Amendments from COSP’s “simulated convention” show why

Virginia should reject any candidates for office who support an Article V convention

Just When You Thought the Power of Eminent Domain Was Made Fair

Three natural gas pipelines proposed to pass through Virginia are being hailed as economic
boons, bringing thousands of jobs and luring manufacturers to the commonwealth.

Most every political leaders in the state, from Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe to
Republican House Speaker Bill Howell, praises the pipelines as the best way to reduce
energy costs and speed the closing of aging coal plants.

The federal Natural Gas Act, which controls the transportation and sale of natural gas,
gives private, for-profit companies the power of eminent domain when a property owner isn't
willing to sell. Unlike Virginia's constitution, federal law does not guarantee the right to
a jury trial in eminent domain cases, and it does not require companies to pay property owners
for lost profits.

In some courts, companies haven't been required to show that they negotiated in good faith
with the property owner before instituting condemnation proceedings. They've simply shown that
the two sides didn't agree on the land's worth.
