It’s not easy for me to ask you for money. It’s one of the things I like least about campaigning. I know times are tough and many of us are struggling. If I didn’t think I had a legitimate shot at winning the race, I wouldn’t be sending this letter. But I do. It is now August 4th and we are coming down to the wire. We need to raise $110,000 by September 1st or risk exclusion from the debates.
History has proven that the establishment will do everything in its power to keep our voice from being heard. They want to prevent you, the people, from interfering with the corruption and abuse in Tallahassee. But put a stop to it we must. The politicians have too much to lose. We need to hold their feet to the fire. We need to stand up for what is right.
They are determined to keep me out of the debates because I’ve already proven that people will vote for me…even without widespread name recognition. Can you imagine how our chances will increase once voters see that our solutions and ideas rise above the petty bickering of Scott and Crist in the debate? We can’t let this opportunity go to waste, folks. I will defeat my opponents because the message of liberty will not go unheard.
It is evident, based on the recent poll, that Floridians are growing tired of Rick Scott and Charlie Crist. They are no longer trusted as leaders. I desperately want to fight for your rights and freedoms. I will continue to do so, regardless of how much money we raise because it is my obligation to do so.
One of the campaign’s most important goals is that we raise $110,000 in the next month. The maximum contribution is $3,000 per person. In order to meet one of the likely criteria to get into the debates, we will need:
If we reach our goal of raising an additional $110,000, we will meet the criteria to receive state matching funds. To the media, this is a big milestone. To me, it’s an opportunity to stand on principle.
I promise to reject the state funding publicly. I am fundamentally opposed to the use of taxpayer money for campaign financing. State matching funds are nothing more than “candidate welfare” and should be abolished.
Right now, all of us are being forced to fund candidates which we despise via this program. If we participate in it, we are no better than they. We will have taken a small step toward becoming what we despise. Though the additional money would mean a lot to our grassroots campaign, it is not worth compromising our core beliefs. We must always remain true to our principles, even when it is not in our short-term best interest to do so.
The time has come. The time is now. We have just 57 days until the absentee ballots are mailed out and less time than that to meet the debate criteria. Donate what you can to help propel the campaign into victory. We need to secure the funds a month before the first debate in order to let our voice… your voice… be heard. By contributing today, we will all be that much closer to restoring prosperity and freedom to the great state of Florida.
Adrian Wyllie, Libertarian candidate for Governor, promises to eliminate property taxes for all Florida Homeowners if elected to office.
Adrian plans to reduce the state budget as well as the state sales tax. Counties would be able to add a local tax equal to the reduced state tax to fund their budgets. This shift in state sales tax to local county tax would eliminate property taxes for every Floridian’s primary residence. With the median property tax over $2,000 in Palm Beach County, that’s quite a savings .
So why not invest $10 or more to help Adrian win this election?
The writing is on the wall. The trend is continuing. If you are not doing something to protect yourself and your wealth you may lose it all. I am talking finances here folks. There used to be good save havens in the world but apparently not any more. At times, when one thought of a solid banking industry, one thought of Switzerland. It was the obvious answer right up to a few ago. Clearly, Switzerland is today is NOT what it used to be.
Beginning in 2009, the United States decided to extend its bullying power from the military to the banking industry. United States lead the untoward charge against the Swiss banking industry. Knocking it to its knees one brick at a time, it has been non-stop bashing ever since. The ending result is no more banking secrecy anywhere in the country. The same is now held true world wide of other countries. Bully for America.
Of course, while Switzerland and other countries took America’s punishment, the Chinese renminbi (RMB) quietly moved forward in the world of business. It moved so stealthily that now it is more popular than the Swiss franc. Certainly not wanting to lose market share of the financial world, the Swiss needed to do something about that.
Bill Wohlsifer Demands George Sheldon Be Disqualified
Florida – Attorney General Candidate, Bill Wohlsifer (LPF), filed a complaint with the Secretary of State, Division of Elections, demanding that George Sheldon (DEM) be disqualified from the Attorney General Race, for not fulfilling the 7-year residency requirements for state candidates.
“I am not filing this Election Fraud Complaint for publicity,” Mr. Wohlsifer stated. “I am doing so solely in perseverance to protect the integrity of our electoral process and candidate qualifying process.”
Conspiracy theorist or not, I swear I could not possibly make this kind of stuff up. Our federal government is supposed to protect our rights (of EVERYONE, not just a few). Yet, now they want to literally destroy our way of life in America. Talk about entitlement mentally gone wrong. With elections coming, you should vote to kick all incumbents out of office and start fresh.
In an all too surreal action of Congress, life is ready to mirror fiction. We are about to step well into the depths of Any Rand’s book Atlas Shrugged. If you have not read the book yet, do so, you may be surprised by what is in it. In the book the character John Galt is presented as a young engineer working at 20th Century Motor Company.
After the owner dies, the heirs who inherit the company make the decision to run the factory according to the new business craze of the time. They think the newly enlightened principles are the best way for companies to make a profit and care for their workers. Keeping with this idea, they decided to allow the workers to vote on how to run the factory and how to get paid. Of course, the end result was that “everyone work according to his ability and get paid according to his need”.
The consequences should be obvious to even the most casual of observers. The smart hard working employees work all day long for the benefit of the others who felt entitled to give forth as little as possible to the effort. John Galt was among the first out the door and many others soon follow. Within a short period of time the company went bust.
Florida – The Miami Times has released an online public poll asking readers who their choice is for Attorney General of Florida. Bill Wohlsifer (LPF) has jumped out to an early lead over the other candidates with a resounding 86.73% of the vote. Second place is democratic candidate Perry Thurston, gaining traction, undoubtedly, due to the questions that have arisen about the residency qualifications of George Sheldon.

Lawrence Lessig may be the greatest radical at work in America today. Lessig, a polymath, professor at Harvard Law School, is no ivory tower type. He is a radical — someone who strikes at the root of things — in the tradition of Thomas Jefferson. His latest book The USA is Lesterland breathes intelligent, courageous-to-the-point-of-heroic, radicalism from every pore. The USA is Lesterland is the most important political book of 2014.
Lessig’s core proposition:
… I offer a simple way to understand the nature of the corruption that is the United States Congress today. I also sketch out a strategy to fix it. That corruption isn’t illegal corruption. It’s not the bad behavior of bad souls. It is instead the ordinary behavior of good souls within a corrupted system. It’s legal corruption, and it has infected and poisoned our government.
Like a magnet beside a compass, or molasses in a gearbox, or a wheel not aligned: This is a system of influence that corrupts the government of our Republic. And it is a bi-partisan, equal opportunity corruption. It blocks the Left. It blocks the Right. It blocks both in the sense that it makes it harder (maybe impossible) for either side to get the principled reform that each side would push.
Real estate is a profession encumbered by countless regulations and rules that must be adhered to in order to assure that no wrong doing or discrimination occurs. One of the many rules that must be followed by agents is that one must not engage in “steering”.
Steering is described as the discriminatory practice of maneuvering an individual away from a home in a neighborhood the real estate agent doesn’t want the individual to consider for whatever reason. Essentially, the agent must show a client every available option on the market, if that option is within the realms of the clients’ criteria. If the agent has committed the act of steering they can be suspended, or lose their license permanently.
There are ads on TV, radio even online. Almost all of them are touting that gold as a solid investment. Unfortunately though, most of them play on people’s fears. OK, let’s face it, gold is definitely a good solid investment, but not AS an investment. People invest for various reasons but the underlying reason for most people to invest is that they seek a profit. It requires they take a risk, the higher the risk, the higher the reward.
Investing in gold is counter intuitive when looking at it from an investment (risky) venture. All investments such as stocks, bonds etc. are debt based, gold is not. There for, the risk for gold is almost nothing. Gold holds an intrinsic value to which BUYING POWER is measured. Therefore, when investing your money in gold you are NOT looking for a profit but seeking to PRESERVE your current wealth.
Many people want to buy gold with no idea of what they are doing or even why they do it. I tell my clients that they should carry somewhere between 10 and 30 percent of their retirement assets in gold. I try to get them to shoot for the 25% mark so as not to tie up all their funds but still leave a hefty buffer in the event of some economic catastrophe occurring.
One thing that every gold investor should remember is that not all gold is equal. There are gold coins, rounds, jewelry, and even electrical connections (bulk buying). There are also mutual funds, mining stocks and the more illusory ETF’s (risk purchases). Nearly all brokerages buy and sell any number or combinations of these financial instruments.
Lower the risk means buying bullion rather than debt based securities. This is a good healthy way to cost average over time without emptying your wallet. Keep in mind a few things I like to remind my clients.
Always take physical delivery. This should be done through a reputable carrier that will insure packages for delivery (like FedEx).
Buy small gold first, then large. Not everyone can afford to buy a kilo of gold, or even a single ounce at one time. However, nearly everyone CAN afford to buy gold by the gram.Never buy exotic coins or gold that do you not understand. If you do not know what you are getting, you do not know the true value of what you have.
Never, ever buy something you do not fully comprehend and understand. It will only lead to heart ache when reality hits.
Be sure to know your dealer. You should buy from someone who has been in business for a while. Someone with a track record that is proven.
Never break the law when buying. Clearly, no matter what you buy, ending up in jail will not allow you to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Do not break the law; the price is not worth the risk. There are plenty of places to choose from where you can easily acquire what you want without crossing the legal line.
You can buy gold bullion from a number of broker/dealers. When I search for whom I wanted to do business with I looked for what I thought would give me the best deal. For me, just buying the gold was not enough. I wanted to know how I could be a middle man and earn a little income on side as well. Maybe even develop it into a full blown business for myself.
