Cruz campaign runs into issues with FEC
Advertisement
Quote:“I’m truly sorry to have to file a complaint against Sen. Cruz’s campaign, because I’m sure he has no clue of what’s going [on] with my concern,” Ohio resident Renata S. Walters put in a handwritten letter to FEC in late 2016 to stop the deductions from her bank account.

In an official response to the FEC, Cruz’s campaign treasurer Bradley Knippa blamed an unidentified “third party vendor” and said it was corrected. The FEC dismissed the case 5-0 after the deductions stopped.

As for the dozens of over the limit donations, Chris Gober, a legal advisor to the Cruz for Senate Campaign, promised all issues in the FEC letters will be remedied. He said campaigns by law have 60 days to identify and correct excessive contributions.

“Based on what the law says and what it permits us to do, I take issue with your insinuation the campaign is somehow not following the letter of the law, or that the FEC is having to ‘flag’ these for the campaign,” Gober said.

A review of 31 other U.S. senatorial campaigns show only three others have received one letter flagging similar issues in the past year. None had as many donors out of compliance as Cruz’s campaign.

add at least half a century of voter suppression, redistricting and gerrymandering to that list... always at the behest of the elitist 1% that are now most certainly playing for keeps... forget level playing fields in the future ,think more like 'rock of sisyphus' they are installing for this years elections.

Nobel laureate James Buchanan is the intellectual linchpin of the Koch-funded attack on democratic institutions, argues Duke historian Nancy MacLean

Ask people to name the key minds that have shaped America’s burst of radical right-wing attacks on working conditions, consumer rights and public services, and they will typically mention figures like free market-champion Milton Friedman, libertarian guru Ayn Rand, and laissez-faire economists Friedrich Hayek and Ludwig von Mises.


James McGill Buchanan is a name you will rarely hear unless you’ve taken several classes in economics. And if the Tennessee-born Nobel laureate were alive today, it would suit him just fine that most well-informed journalists, liberal politicians, and even many economics students have little understanding of his work.

The reason? Duke historian Nancy MacLean contends that his philosophy is so stark that even young libertarian acolytes are only introduced to it after they have accepted the relatively sunny perspective of Ayn Rand. (Yes, you read that correctly). If Americans really knew what Buchanan thought and promoted, and how destructively his vision is manifesting under their noses, it would dawn on them how close the country is to a transformation most would not even want to imagine, much less accept.

That is a dangerous blind spot, MacLean argues in a meticulously researched book, Democracy in Chains, a finalist for the National Book Award in Nonfiction. While Americans grapple with Donald Trump’s chaotic presidency, we may be missing the key to changes that are taking place far beyond the level of mere politics. Once these changes are locked into place, there may be no going back.

An Unlocked Door in Virginia


MacLean’s book reads like an intellectual detective story. In 2010, she moved to North Carolina, where a Tea Party-dominated Republican Party got control of both houses of the state legislature and began pushing through a radical program to suppress voter rights, decimate public services, and slash taxes on the wealthy that shocked a state long a beacon of southern moderation. Up to this point, the figure of James Buchanan flickered in her peripheral vision, but as she began to study his work closely, the events in North Carolina and also Wisconsin, where Governor Scott Walker was leading assaults on collective bargaining rights, shifted her focus.

Could it be that this relatively obscure economist’s distinctive thought was being put forcefully into action in real time?

MacLean could not gain access to Buchanan’s papers to test her hypothesis until after his death in January 2013. That year, just as the government was being shut down by Ted Cruz & Co., she traveled to George Mason University in Virginia, where the economist’s papers lay willy-nilly across the offices of a building now abandoned by the Koch-funded faculty to a new, fancier center in Arlington.

MacLean was stunned. The archive of the man who had sought to stay under the radar had been left totally unsorted and unguarded. The historian plunged in, and she read through boxes and drawers full of papers that included personal correspondence between Buchanan and billionaire industrialist Charles Koch. That’s when she had an amazing realization: here was the intellectual linchpin of a stealth revolution currently in progress.

A Theory of Property Supremacy

Buchanan, a 1940 graduate of Middle Tennessee State University who later attended the University of Chicago for graduate study, started out as a conventional public finance economist. But he grew frustrated by the way in which economic theorists ignored the political process.

Buchanan began working on a description of power that started out as a critique of how institutions functioned in the relatively liberal 1950s and ‘60s, a time when economist John Maynard Keynes’s ideas about the need for government intervention in markets to protect people from flaws so clearly demonstrated in the Great Depression held sway. Buchanan, MacLean notes, was incensed at what he saw as a move toward socialism and deeply suspicious of any form of state action that channels resources to the public.

Quote:"Buchanan was incensed at what he saw as a move toward socialism and deeply suspicious of any form of state action that channels resources to the public. Why should the federal government be able to force the wealthy to pay for goods and programs that served ordinary citizens?"

Quote:"Buchanan’s view of human nature was distinctly dismal. Buchanan insisted that people were primarily driven by venal self-interest. politicians and government workers were out for themselves, and so, for that matter, were teachers, doctors, and civil rights activists."

Quote:"Buchanan saw society as a cutthroat realm of makers constantly under siege by takers. His own language was often more stark, warning the alleged “prey” of “parasites” and “predators” out to fleece them. The economist launched a center dedicated to his theories."

Another not so fun fact. Prior to the recent tax cuts, the US had some of the highest corporate tax rates in the world, and oppressive income taxes are the norm in the progressive left's exemplar countries.

And that was remembered fondly as THE MOST prosperous time in America. In fact given his age, I have NO DOUBT that THIS is the era that Donald Trump refers to when he says.. "Make America Great AGAIN."

RE: Cruz campaign runs into issues with FEC
watch everything the Trump enablers are parroting.. their rally point ad nausem devaluation of science... the purging of every environmental regulation that effects the health and well being of society... send the poor to the wall with healthcare, social programs that cost a pittance compared to the trillions being given away to the 1% and their MIC as we speak.
