Tom Alciere for Congress, 2022: An Orthodox Libertarian Extremist
Running in the Republican primary in New Hampshires First District
Bend The Knee? Not Me!
I am running in the First Congressional District because candidate Matt Mowers is an avowed supporter of Donald Trump. I do not support Trump. I never did. I never will. Trump is a total jackass, wholly unfit for public office. In 2015, Fergus Cullen, former chairman of the Republican Party of New Hampshire, filed with the Ballot Law Commission to exclude Donald Trumps name from the Republican primary ballots, providing a laundry list of reasons why Trump isnt even fit to be called a Republican. Filing
Response from Trump campaign
Ruling. Republicans now supporting Trump show total lack of principle. I am a Ron Paul Revolutionary, having worked on his campaign and built a website, The Book of Ron Paul, cataloguing many of his Congressional speeches and statements.
Lets see now
the Capitol rioters thought they were defending the Constitution of the United States by physically resisting the fulfillment of its most vivid clause: The President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates, and the votes shall then be counted; (Amendment XII)
and Trump supporters count Mike Pence a traitor for doing exactly that.
I distinguish myself from the other candidates as the one who never supported Trump and as the one who wants the United States of America to become a free country, with liberty and justice for all. Face it, most people wind up either voting for Democrats because the Republicans are so bad, or voting for Republicans because Democrats are so bad. I offer the opportunity to vote for a good candidate.
It took a bloody war, started over other issues, to emancipate the slaves in some States, because too many crazy people kept voting wrong. What will it take to open the borders, legalize all drugs, abolish public school and school taxes, and eliminate zoning restrictions, to name just a few of the many steps toward liberty and justice for all?
Let me start with drug laws: If somebody is dealing fentanyl, you dont have to buy any. You dont have to let your children buy any. People ask how they are supposed to control their children when the children are in school. That is another reason public school has to go. In a free country, nobody would be forced to pay school taxes. Legitimate schools would have to compete for students, and any school with a drug problem would take care of it or go out of business. In public school, children are taught that a boy who is disappointed he is not a girl, who pretends to be a girl and convinces himself that he is a girl, is a girl. They insist that he has a right to shower with girls in the girls locker room, and any girl who objects needs to learn to get over it. I have a better idea: The boy who is disappointed he isnt a girl, or vice versa, can learn to get over it.
Some voters keep electing candidates who are in favor of public school, insisting that every child somehow has a right to an education at somebody elses expense. When school taxes go up, they tell local bureaucrats to impose tougher zoning restrictions to prevent more families from moving into the town, and they tell Congress to add more U.S. Border Patrol goons, to prevent more families from moving into the country. Now, what were they saying about every child? If families cannot afford to educate their children, how will they afford a bureaucracy that will educate their children, and how in the world will they afford the large house and yard required by the zoning restrictions just so the town can tax it? They designate some parts of town as residential and other parts as business districts, and they complain that so many people are driving cars. Well, without zoning restrictions and parking lot requirements, folks could live closer to working, shopping and drinking; and they could walk home.
Governments never had any right to restrict immigration. Maybe you have heard that silly song, This land is your land, this land is my land... but the truth is, if you own your yard, it is not mine. By the way, that song was performed at Bidens inauguration. Take a tour of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and you will get a vivid view of what happened to millions of innocent persons, because of U.S. law enforcement goons enforcing immigration restrictions, preventing the victims from escaping.
Remember in 2021 when thousands of refugees were living under a bridge in Del Rio, Texas? President Biden sent in gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to round them up and ultimately force them onto jets bound for Toussaint Louverture International Airport.
Have you been to the supermarket lately? Did you find everything you were looking for?
I ask because I know that many voters dont give a fire truck about the refugees, deported to a place where they have no job, no home, and many dont even speak Creole. You care when there is no strawberry yogurt, and, poor babies, you have to settle for raspberry yogurt, because factory managers have trouble hiring enough workers. Those refugees wanted to work. As the song goes,
Well, tonight, thank God its them, instead of you.
Do you really think that your birthplace, being within certain lines on the map, makes you superior to them?
Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
—President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 13 March 1962
If you dont have time to read the candidates campaign websites, dont bother voting, either. You would probably vote wrong and vote away other peoples freedoms. Be careful not to underestimate the hostility incited by such voters. Get money out of politics by reading all the campaign websites, which cost almost nothing to produce.

I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!
— Barry Goldwater
Peaceful, nonviolent revolutions against tyranny have been every bit as successful as those involving military confrontation. Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., achieved great political successes by practicing nonviolence, and yet they suffered physically at the hands of the state. But whether the resistance against government tyrants is nonviolent or physically violent, the effort to overthrow state oppression qualifies as true patriotism.
—2007 Ron Paul 55:6
The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
—New Hampshire Constitution, Part the First, Article 10
Abolitionists made a big mistake. They thought they could get somewhere trying to reason with crazy people. It is impossible. How can we be required to change their opinions whilst respecting their right to hold wrong opinions? Abolitionists got the Compromise of 1820, and thirty years later the Compromise of 1850. What does your credit card say to do if the card is lost, stolen or compromised? Compromise is not a good thing. Libertarians are getting nowhere trying to reason with crazy people. Libertarians have been doing this for decades without success. It does not work.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.
—Declaration of Independence, 1776.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet.
Patrick Henry, 23 March 1775
On 19 June 1865, Major General Gordon Granger marched into Galveston, Texas. Let us picture the scene:
Slave driver: Are you suggesting we just let all these Negroes just walk off their masters premises? Are you out of your cotton-picking mind? Theyll take jobs away from White folks!
Granger: Aint suggesting nothing. Im telling it like it is. They are free as of now, and thats all there is to it. Any objection? Objection overruled. Anybody who has a problem with that can tell somebody that cares.
That is the only way to deal with the crazy people. It helped that he had thousands of federal troops to back him up. We dont.
What we do have is the Officer Down Memorial Page. Most of those cases have nothing to do with anybody fighting back against injustice, but a few do. We need to sort those out and we need to put the blood of the dead cop on the hands of politicians who voted to make it necessary. If they are tough on drugs in order to win elections, they bought those votes with cops blood. If you voted for them, you didnt pull the trigger, but you did pull the lever.
We are up against a very evil force in this country. It is called democracy. Make no mistake: Gang rape is a democracy. Five persons say yes, one person says no, and the majority rules, electing one of themselves sheriff, to handcuff the victim. One vote is useless, and so is campaigning to those potholes, who do not give a fire truck about somebody elses rights, but killing the sheriff might work. If he didnt want to get himself killed, he shouldnt have accepted the job; and if they didnt want him to get himself killed, they shouldnt have voted wrong.
We must not water down our message. Unalienable rights, by definition, preempt the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Except when the cop has a just and valid excuse for the proposed arrest, the right to resist arrest is as absolute and as sacred as the right to resist being raped. By putting the blood of the slain cops on lawmakers who voted to make it necessary, and on voters who elected them, we will send out a powerful message to voters: Vote for candidates who support liberty, even if your TV didnt spoon-feed you any information about them.
Remember how the crazy people think. They never gave a fire truck about Johnny Junkie when bullies were picking on him at school. They keep re-electing candidates who support public school. They dont care when he cannot find a job or get a date. When he starts messing around with harmful drugs, now they suddenly use that as an excuse to pretend they care. They feel a duty to care. After all, he could die of an opioid overdose! They care so much, they prevail on their lawmakers to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests to intimidate him into living a healthy, drug-free lifestyle. If he resists arrest and manages to capture the enemy officers gun as a prize of war, using it to settle the matter out of court, suddenly they openly hate him so much, they want him to die of a Sodium pentothal overdose! Thats because they never cared about him, they only wanted to punish him and control him, to feel superior.
We need to find that elusive set of chess moves that provokes them so much, they give up caring about him, without hating him so much they want to punish him. By putting the blood of slain cops on their hands, by vowing never to render aid to enemy officers in distress, and by pointing out that if they had left us alone we might have died of overdoses ourselves and we wouldnt be here, telling them off, looking for every opportunity to make them wish they had left us alone, we can do this. We need to tell them: You dont win by saving their lives if they will spend every waking hour for the rest of their lives looking, like merciless, analytical chess players, for every opportunity to mete out payback.
In 2008, I spotted one such opportunity. Thousands of bureaucrats from all over the U.S.A. descended upon Nashville, Tennessee for the annual get-together of the now-defunct Underage Drinking Enforcement Training Center, to learn the latest techniques for how to intimidate Mr. and Mrs. Twenty into abstaining from alcoholic drinks. Since liberty is an unalienable right which no government can justly infringe, we orthodox libertarian extremists did not accept Prohibition when it was imposed under the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and we do not accept underage drinking laws. Governments cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents.
In reviewing the schedule on the UDETC website, I noticed it said the visitors could tag along and watch the local cops do alcohol sting operations. I observed an opportunity to punish the enemy. I phoned many licensees to warn them, Thought you might like to know that the Metro Nashville Police will be doing alcohol sting operations on August 21st from 6 p.m. to 8:30. Together with a youth rights activist in Nashville, we sabotaged an enemy operation, and I am proud of it. Enemy goons lost opportunities to arrest innocent merchants, and the visitors watched a forewarned exercise, not a candid one. This isnt to minimize the benefits of the drinking age, mind you. Just think, had law enforcement not dedicated so much of its precious, limited resources to combatting underage drinking, somebody under 21 could have walked right into The Pulse nightclub in Orlando, and had a beer.
I also find other opportunities. I have asked many candidates, Do you want to legalize drugs now, or do you still want to wait until more cops get themselves killed in shoot-outs first? I asked that question of Kelly Ayotte, former New Hampshire Attorney General, when she was running for United States Senator, and I could tell by her faltering voice that I annoyed her. Enemies of liberty tend not to want to face responsibility for the consequences of their own malicious wrongdoing.
