Tom Alciere for
U.S. Senator,
New Hampshire 2010

Liberty – Justice – Privacy
Everybody knows we’re living in a police state now. Why would any sane person want to send the attorney general–the state’s top cop– to Washington, where she can give cops even more power than they already have, and take even more freedom and privacy away from citizens?

“Kelly's strong record clearly illustrates that she will enforce our drug laws, incarcerate predators, and work with our state and federal law enforcement officials as a well-respected and trusted partner.” — Kelly Ayotte.

In a free country, the government would not be using gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate citizens into living a healthy lifestyle, into giving up their right to use drugs. In a free country, the citizen would freely decide what drugs, if any, to use; parents would govern their child who still lives in their home; and stoned driving would be combatted by busting stoned drivers, not by snooping through suitcases and bank records.

Remember, some of your fellow citizens realize that the Second Amendment wasn’t written for sportsmen. “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.” — John F. Kennedy, Sr.

“Alciere doesn’t give up easily.” — The Union Leader, 18 June 2006.

“All this, I know well enough, will sound wild and chimerical to the profane herd of those vulgar and mechanical politicians who have no place among us: a sort of people who think that nothing exists but what is gross and material,--and who, therefore, far from being qualified to be directors of the great movement of empire, are not fit to turn a wheel in the machine. But to men truly initiated and rightly taught, these ruling and master principles, which in the opinion of such men as I have mentioned have no substantial existence, are in truth everything, and all in all.” — Edmund Burke 22 March 1775

Tom Alciere on domestic policy:
[Do the other candidates make their positions this clear?]
    Tom Alciere wants to call off the War on Drugs now, unlike the Congressman depicted at left, who still wants to wait until more cops get themselves killed in action first.
     Don’t like drugs? Don’t buy any. Snooping though suitcases at airports and pressing foreign governments to tighten banking regulations are not good ways to improve traffic safety.

“If the opinion of the Supreme Court covered the whole ground of this act, it ought not to control the coordinate authorities of this Government. The Congress, the Executive, and the Court must each for itself be guided by its own opinion of the Constitution. Each public officer who takes an oath to support the Constitution swears that he will support it as he understands it, and not as it is understood by others. It is as much the duty of the House of Representatives, of the Senate, and of the President to decide upon the constitutionality of any bill or resolution which may be presented to them for passage or approval as it is of the supreme judges when it may be brought before them for judicial decision. The opinion of the judges has no more authority over Congress than the opinion of Congress has over the judges, and on that point the President is independent of both. The authority of the Supreme Court must not, therefore, be permitted to control the Congress or the Executive when acting in their legislative capacities, but to have only such influence as the force of their reasoning may deserve.”Veto message by Andrew Jackson, 10 July 1832

     Tom Alciere is for “peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none.”
     Here is a balanced video documenting rocket attacks in both directions across the border between Gaza and Israel.
     “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free…”
     Had this policy been followed during the Shoah, there might not have been a need to establish the State of Israel after the war.

Tom Alciere on the economy:

The Congress shall have Power...
To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

Congress should adopt the gold standard, the silver standard and the metric system for monetary policy. Federal and State government contracts should be denominated in gold or silver. Coins should be ten grams of 0.999 fine gold and 10 grams of 0.999 fine silver, and of designs not specific to our country. Such coins could be minted in any country (provided they apply some distinguishing mark to identify their mint,) and would be recognized and accepted world-wide.

A problem would arise when coins circulate, because gold and silver are too soft to withstand the rigors of circulation. In most cases, ownership of such coins, stored in bank vaults, would be transferred with banknotes or accounting transactions (such as debit cards).

Private citizens and companies could price their dealings in silver or in gold.

Congress should adopt the metric system for all dealings with federal, state and local government agencies.

Bank deposits are private contracts between the bank and the customer. If the bank fails, there’s no reason why you should have to pay off the depositors. Many of them might have far more money than you. Tom Alciere is against FDIC and NCUSIF insurance. There is no authority under the constitution for such insurance.

The Congress shall have Power...
To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;

Tom Alciere will support efforts to exempt workers at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard from Maine income taxes.

Tom Alciere opposes zoning in the District of Columbia.

Tom Alciere will support efforts to re-legalize all drugs in the District of Columbia. Selling whiskey to an underage customer who is already intoxicated, on Sunday morning, without a license, does not violate anybody’s rights. Therefore, all laws prohibiting the same must go.

American University student Andrew Burr never got a chance to drink legally in the United States. He was a passenger in a car waiting at a red light at Edmunds Street and Wisconsin Avenue in Northwest Washington, D.C. at 21:00 on 18 January 2004 when a drunk driver rear-ended them, killing him at age 20. She was 22 and tested 0.13% BAC. Tom Alciere wants tough laws against drunk driving in the District of Columbia.

Tom Alciere will work to loosen taxi regulations in the District of Columbia. Maryland cab drivers passing through the District should not have to refuse service. Such rules encourage drunk driving when District taxis are busy.

Tom Alciere will work to make the District of Columbia a safe haven for pregnant runaways whose parents are trying to force them to have abortions. Federal kidnapping laws should not apply to persons who transport such runaways across State lines to the District of Columbia.

Tom Alciere will make his second home in the District of Columbia, not the suburbs.

Homosexuals should not be able to adopt children in the District of Columbia, nor should such adoptions in a State be recognized in the District. An innocent child should never be returned by force to such an arrangement. The homosexuals knew you don’t make a baby that way, so if they wanted to raise children, they should have made a better choice.

Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.

In cases of adoption, false birth certificates are issued, which say two persons had a baby on a certain day and place, when in fact they did not. Congress has Constitutional power to make it illegal to issue false birth certificates, and should do so.

Tom Alciere on foreign policy:
Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.
Tom Alciere opposes the war in Iraq.
Tom Alciere opposes foreign aid.

Tom Alciere on foreign tyranny:
Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, thy homeless, tempest-tost to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door. (This policy is consistent with liberty and justice for all.)
