Dear Mom and Dad,

Dear Mom and Dad,

My friends and I noticed your generation has been having the time of your lives and putting the bill on our account. We are on the hook for $22 trillion of your silliness. Do you think that’s funny or something? We don’t.

So, today, we are having an intervention. If you don’t click this link and join the Federalist Party of America to help clean up your mess, we aren’t eating our vegetables ever again. Don’t even bother talking to us about homework and stuff.

You can also text FEDPARTY to 53445 on your cell phone and join, if you can pry yourself away from Twitter for 45 seconds.

Sorry, not sorry,

US Kids

Chairman’s Corner: March ’19

Thousands of American children played hooky from school on March 15 as part of an international protest on global warming. I wish we had thought of that on a sunny Friday morning in the 1970’s.

I’ve never been one for involving kids in politics, but this was an obvious play for organizers seeking to call attention to climate issues. Young people will inherit the planet, and they clearly have a stake greater than those of us now greying at the temples. Point made.

But if U.S. children really wanted to vent about something, it would be the $22 trillion, and growing, federal debt. That bill is going to come due for them a lot sooner than Manhattan island will become submerged by water, no matter what Al Gore says.

We’re soon approaching the point where perennial interest on the federal debt — and we’re not even counting unfunded liabilities on social security and Medicare in the total — will surpass the entire annual military budget. Think about that. And when interest rates return to normal historical levels, we’re in an even deeper hole.

What’s even more frightening, though, is that the capital markets our children and grandchildren will need to finance college, business, and mortgage loans will be exhausted by government borrowing in the years ahead. In other words, our progeny won’t have money available to open businesses or buy homes; government borrowing will have sucked it all up. That’s a crisis that could bring America to its knees.

Children are supposed to be shielded from at least some of this world’s madnesses, but I don’t think that’s why we aren’t telling them about the debt. We’re not telling them about the debt because we can’t look them in the eye.

Get those signs ready, kiddos. It’s time to shame your moms and dads.

Local is Better

Today marks the one year anniversary of our organization’s founding and we’d like to share some of the accomplishments and thank you for the interest you have expressed in our efforts. 

We have recruited a full slate of board of directors and sponsored For Immediate Release, a weekly podcast, on We’ve also entered into several meaningful memorandums of understanding to work with other groups and individuals on issues we believe will reset the balance of power in America. We plan to continue publishing a newsletter regularly with content produced from those relationships.

We’d ask you to share our website with anyone you think might be supportive of our efforts as we move ahead in 2019,  promoting the devolution of governmental jurisdiction downward on as many issues as possible.

We continue to strive for more democracy at local levels and more representation at the federal level. In the pursuit of a more perfect union: Local is better.

Chairman’s Note: Winter ’19

Dear Friends,

The Federalist Party of America finds itself busier than ever as the spring of 2019 hints of an early approach.

Our concern about the nation’s fiscal and cultural health remains grave, and we are redoubling our efforts to establish meaningful alliances and strategic partnerships to spread our message of originalist, jurisdictional government throughout the country.

Our federal debt — not counting unfunded mandates – just reached the $22 trillion threshold, a figure beyond the comprehension of even the most fiscally attuned Americans.

Neither major party is even discussing debt reduction, and the party of ostensible fiscal responsibility, the Republican Party, added another trillion dollars to our childrens’ ledger this year. Unconscionable doesn’t begin to describe the recklessness.

At the same time, Democratic Party candidates for President are competing to signal who would spend more in the White House faster. “Free” is the operative word in each of their proposals, so cling tight to your wallets.

The FPA is engaged in high-level talks with others around America looking at the 2020 election cycle. We are asking what all are asking: Does it make sense to back a third-party party candidate for President; would such a run be viable or potentially harmful?, and who might that candidate be?

We are also analyzing key congressional districts to determine if it would make sense to field House candidates next year under our banner.

We ask that you stay tuned on both of these discussions, and welcome your feedback as always.

Please know that we remain forever grateful for your loyalty to this great American cause. Your dedication and friendship reminds us to toil just a little bit longer each day in our mission to return our beloved country to the pre-established track that, we dare say, made it great in the first place.

Together we can get there.

With stubborness, best wishes, and eternal optimism,

When I was a young boy one of my favorite shows was COPS. “Bad boys bad boys, What’cha gonna do when they come for you?” Since then there has been an explosion of Law Enforcement programming, and it’s not by coincidence.

The United States of America with 5% of the world’s population has the largest prison population on earth. That’s right, we lead the world in incarceration. How could that be in the “Land of the Free”?! Programming.

We The People, are absolutely inundated, indoctrinated and programmed by the State at every turn before we can even speak. Lets focus on the programming, today.

Let me first say, Sheriff’s, Deputies, Police and Agents who I know a lot of, are not mean spirited people. In fact I think most of them think they are protecting Americans. Unfortunately the indoctrination and misinformation from the State and the programming they receive while growing up feed directly in to our current paradigm of mass incarceration.

On any of these reality Law Enforcement programs when is the last time officers busted anyone with the real means to defend themselves? Or that actually knew their Natural Inalienable Rights or the Constitution? Someone in the Government? Another Law Enforcement Officer? No, what you see most of the time are Officers arresting people for possession of “drugs” or some other obscure victim-less “crime”.

To paraphrase James Madison in Federalist paper No 62. “It will poison the blessing of liberty if laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.” I don’t think the greatest minds in “law” today could successfully argue that we have too few laws. Moreover, I will add that we have so many laws that we have all been made criminals, and that is where I believe we begin real criminal justice reform.

Crimes need to be simple, easy to understand and most importantly, crime requires a victim before “Law Enforcement Officers” begin the process of bringing the criminal to justice. If there isn’t a victim then a crime has not been committed. If a “law” can not be boiled down to Murder, Assault, Rape, Kidnapping, Coercion, or Property Damage then more than likely it’s a revenue generating scheme for the ever growing State that preys on our fears while usurping or completely destroying our Inalienable Natural Rights and worst of all the State will tell us it’s for our “Safety”.

“You hate COPS Shane!” I assure you I don’t. I hate tyrannical governments. These ideas, and these principles pave the way to make officers and citizens safer as it strictly limits, transforms and naturally de-escalates our everyday interactions. And at the end of the day, I want everyone to return home safely to their loved ones where they belong including Cops.

Cops, your original mission was to be “the thin blue line” between the people and our government, in that you were commissioned to protect our Inalienable Natural Rights, not use force against us for exercising those rights. And per the 9th Amendment we are secured all rights not listed in the Bill of Rights. We have the right to; trade, run business, travel, bear arms, speak, worship, redress our government without permits or licenses, without ‘buts’ or asterisks as long as it hurts no other person or property. “Laws” that restrict our Natural Rights to protect us from exercising our Natural Right are repugnant, and as you swore an Oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States per art 6 sec 3 of Constitution you are duty bound to push back against everyone in the State that would have you violate that Oath.

Simplicity is the genius of design. The natural principles of Peace, Free Markets and Individual Liberty are simple and they’re making the same come back they have throughout history when tyrannical States go too far in the persecution of their own people. Turn off the tyrannical programming and lets re-boot the classics like Madison, Locke, Batiste and Hazlitt.

If we want to be Free men and women, then we must act as free men and women act, and that starts with nature’s timeless undeniable principles.
