I have successfully submitted enough signatures to appear on the Republican primary ballot. I will be calling for, among other policies, removal of tax on Vermont-Made items and reforms to government practices that KISS for Vermont ( keep it simple). I will call for an end to property tax and all other forms of taxation, freeing Vermonters from excessive red tape and compliance costs, while fulfilling the whole of our revenue needs with a 23 to 27% consumption based sales tax with its excellent transparency. Vermont-made items will be exempt as will be used items. With a graduated prebate, the lower income households and individuals will have means to acclimate.
I will also call for our tax revenue to work harder for the benefit of Vermont with a taxpayers public bank, by which we can turn our revenue to credit creation. A fiscally conservative administration would do not less than to increase the efficiency of our revenue in this manner. To the treasurers claim that it would negatively affect our bond rating, that cannot be the case as long as our rating is graded on our successful repayment of our debt obligations. However if our state’s bond rating is instead a political rating that we could be penalized for creating statewide financial self sufficiency, then one has to question the integrity of those who establish bond rates, no? Lastly to this point, a taxpayers public bank would stabilize our economic future and allow us to graduate from bonding itself, which should be rightly understood as bondage.
Enough nerdy talk. This is going to be a great run. Already the attitude of the Republicans (if not yet their party leadership) is warm and welcoming, and I intend to win their hearts, as well and engage their minds. I will be attending by invitation the Second annual legislative appreciation dinner on the 28. I will draw to the party the support of independents, and green granola’s with whom we will join forces to create more and more small businesses, the best form of statewide economic balance. We don’t want to suffer from the whims and failures of big business, Entergy, IBM, so on. With a strategically strengthened small business base; strengthened with the above tax reform, and more economic beneficial practices like free health clinics in every town (for the same cost of the ill-executed website), our people will flourish and be able to take care of the basically hapless wealthies, helpless uber-richies and fallen money gods with our superb foods, products and services.
Of course hemp ,as in wind, solar, hydro, hemp will be a trademark of my leadership. We will, as Washington himself directed, make the very most of the “indian hemp weed”. We will legalize marijuana, (as alcohol) with special attention to its medical uses to reduce seizures in children and remove our opiate prescription practices. I’ll direct agricultural hemp research and development at the collegiate level for its full capacity to replace petroleum.
I will stand up to our current psychiatrists and doctors who are prescribing opiates, and warn them off of Zohydro, while introducing legislation to end our doctors’ terrible dependence on prescribing them for pain relief while the rest of the world prescribes opiates 95% less without leaving patients writhing about in pain.
Lastly for the purposes of this release, I will stand with the opposition to the fracked gas and xl pipelines, and for the increased independence of each household from energy costs. This is the greenest way forward. I will bring forward a Vermont patent holder whose wind instruments will revolutionize the wind means of energy production and remove our issues that big wind is currently causing. That’s the wonderful mystery of life, it has its miracles and each miracle more interesting than the next, each causing increased faith in the actual loving nature of cosmos as long as we contribute to that love.
Remember, Money may be speech, but knowledge is power. I feel confident in my power, and it grows.
As it is the full moon, and we have a registration to grow agricultiral hemp on Peyton hill here, I am going outside now to seed a few beds with the seeds gleaned from a farmer in Winooski. He said that twenty years ago, they had a number of acres of wild hemp that grew ten feet high and the cows would stand under it, then the dust from the hemp plants would cover them and discourage insects. Isn’t that marvelously cool?
Over and out, this is Emily Peyton, the incoming governor (I don’t know exactly when I’ll get in).
I was in Burlington and a man called from an upstairs open window, “Good luck Emily!” I do believe I have that.
