GOP CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR WANTS TO EMULATE TWO LIBERALS
By Betty Freauf
October 29, 2006
This article may be a little late for the Oregon voters who have already submitted their vote-by-mail ballot but it has only been recently that gubernatorial candidate Ron Saxton has been running ads suggesting he wants to emulate Hatfield and McCall. The ad shows a bunch of "mudslinging" going on in today's elections across the country and makes us believe in the days of former U.S. Senator Mark Hatfield, who was also governor from 1959 to 1967 and former Governor Tom McCall (1967-1975) this type of political back biting did not go on. Ron Saxton wants us to believe if Oregonians elect him as governor, "change must start at the top" and he'll be "bi-partisan" to pull the state together. I personally don't see exposing voting records of elected officials as mudslinging.
I said in my article dated September 6 (Part 2) that the 2006 and subsequent 2008 presidential election (if there is one) should not be boring and I've been proven right. The feathers have been hitting the fan. Things that have long been covered up by the media are being exposed.
One thing the politicians count on is a short memory by voters so let this former GOP member (the elephant) remind voters of a few things they may have forgotten why we have such bitter turmoil and divisions in our country today.
Saxton claims he will take care of the funding for schools. Perhaps he doesn't remember how the two watermellons, Hatfield and McCall, helped to shut down our forests which at one time were contributing great sums of tax money towards the schools. Both would be candidates for the green party today.
Let me start off with McCall who went to Washington, D.C. in 1973 and rubbed elbows with the Rockefellers, who gave land for the communist-controlled United Nations building. McCall desired to leave a legacy of strong land use planning. This resulted in many regulations on the business person causing undue hardships many times.
In one appearance before a committee he said he didn't think the sanctions should be painless for resisters to his strict land use planning because they would be meaningless if they were and certainly the sanctions should not break the states or ruin their viability but they "should sting like the devil."
In the book WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SOCIALISM, by Dr. W.S. McBirnie, he states, "Socialism requires a powerful central government. People do not easily or naturally adapt themselves to socialism, so it must rest upon force."
And it was yet another Republican, President Richard Nixon, who with a stroke of a pen, signed Executive Order 11647 on February 10, 1972 dividing the U.S. into ten federal regions to be run by "Federal Regional Councils" which one Fabian Socialist professor said was something presidents had been trying to put into effect for many years. Regional administrative government began taking the control away from the local people.
Read about the Fabians in the book FABIAN FREEWAY - HIGH ROAD TO SOCIALISM IN THE U.S.A. published in 1968. These members were encouraged to join any political party provided they would take every opportunity to further the Fabian cause. However, political activity was only second to education on the Fabian agenda and now we have openly Marxist/Humanist professors by the thousands controlling the universities and colleges that produce America's teachers and other professionals.
The Socialist Fabian Society, the forerunner of most socialist groups in America, cunningly represented itself as "a constitutional movement" had as their motto "Make haste slowly." The practice of joining a political party for the sake of advancing Fabian programs and placing Fabians in elective and appointive posts became known as "permeate and penetrate." Grafting itself on the century-old British reform movement, the Fabian Society combined sociology with politics in an effort to propel its members into positions of national influence. Today it could be called the "Politically Correct" agenda. The goals of the Fabian Society parallel those of the Communists. They set up "right wing" think tanks and The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) invites elected representatives to attend meeting to receive their regular dose of brainwashing and this is why we often see similar bills introduced in a variety of states - another well-orchestrated Fabian Socialist scheme.
In addition, in 1971 Nixon also took us off the gold standard and the U.S. dollar is now fiat currency so turn on the printing presses - full speed ahead and inflation!
Governor Tom McCall likewise with a stroke of a pen signed Executive Order 68-11 creating State Administrative Districts and shortly after that we began to see the legislature, creating many unconstitutional bureaucratic agencies which now "interpret" laws which the puppets called legislators pass further diminishing local control which is now kaput. While we are suppose to believe our vote counts we are being controlled by unelected and unpatriotic faceless overpaid, fat administrators. Energetic patriots have had to use the initiative process to try to save us but even when we get a good plebiscite passed, some popinjay in a black robe is likely to overturn it.
McCall went on to say, "You also have to know the closer you get to the grassroots the harder it is to do these things that you can do more easily as a state or more easily as the federal government because of the parochialism and whipsawing that comes when the neighbors don't want to do this...and they are friends. So we need the strong sword...that the federal government can provide..." One of the agencies created under McCall was Human Resources which now devours a huge percentage of Oregon's budget.
Is this the kind of mentor to which Saxton was referring?
Now, let us write about Hatfield, who I've been told, had another boy act as a body guard for him when he was in school and when he went to Washington, D.C. that practice continued.
Senator Mark Hatfield, a long-time dove, is another cause of our bitter division today. He signed the Declaration of Interdependence. Among other nefarious deeds he pulled, he was a globalist - a one worlder. He disliked the military and would vote against its budgets and claiming to be a Christian, he had that community completely bamboozled. Hatfield, when he sat on the Senate Appropriations Committee, saw to it that lots of pork came to Oregon. While admitting he didn't even know what his salary was and by letting his wife handle all the banking, the buildings that Mark built now have his name on them. In November 1983, for example, the newly named Mark O. Hatfield Marine Science Center at Oregon State University was dedicated.
And in 1984 many a debate arose over the 970,100 acres of wilderness proposed by Sen. Hatfield making the conservation groups very happy and the Forestry industry said was too much of a price to pay. Many national forests have been set aside and unmanaged and now we see them burning.
Former senator and conservative Democrat Zell Miller in his book A NATIONAL PARTY NO MORE says politics is like fighting rats, you've got to go at it night and day. I couldn't agree more. Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.
What will it take to shock people out of their lethargy and apathy? I've often wondered what kind of an impact those retired people in their six-mile-to-the-gallon motor homes and with fifth wheelers behind their pickups would have if they all went to the southern border to help the Minutemen? But I fear hedonism, materialism and narcissism reign! What kind of a legacy are they leaving their children and grandchildren?
A few grassroots people over the years have been awakened. There was an occasional ripple here and a pocket of resistance there warning of the impending dangers. It became an even greater wake up call when they found their own ox being gored but it has taken years and still many are blinded by loyalty to the two-party cult that is leading them back to slavery and bondage.
Elected officials like Hatfield and McCall are part of the plot so anyone who wants to vote for Saxton because he wants to be like them should take a deep breath before giving him their vote. It will not be voting the lesser of two evils...it will be voting evil if Saxton follows in the footsteps of Hatfield and McCall.
Does this mean you should vote for Saxton's opponent, Democrat incumbent Ted Kulongowski? No, they are all birds of a feather and they all flock together.
I'd recommend you vote principle over politics and mark Constitutionalist Mary Starrett on the ballot.
