Testing the Waters for the US Senate, Fl.

"I understand that mine is but one voice, but perhaps when united in a national chorus of discontent against those who would willingly deny you and I as Americans, access to our natural public resources, foundations to governmental entities and asserted councils can better understand how such radical anti-fishing rhetoric is truly impacting the cultural heritage and traditions of our vital coastal infrastructure and refusing us our basic human rights as established under the public trust doctrine."

The Tea Party, to which I follow closely, is not a political party, nor is it looking to form a third political party any time soon, as stated on their web site but we as The Florida Whigs, will be, upon election, that third party to which will be the conscience of the other two, in forming a bond to the Red, White and Blue. Reforming all political parties and government so that the core principles of our Founding Fathers become, once again, the foundation upon which America stands.
I, Gary A. Anderson, do here by so intend to test the waters and am looking for funding to Endorsements as I am an Exploratory Candidate for the US Senate, Florida as a Florida Whig Party Representative. I am Proud to live in North Port Florida. I am proud to resident in the Great State of Florida and I am proud to be an American. I tell all I meet, in this country, yours and mine; you can do whatever you want, all you have to do is try. I maybe disabled but I am not dead. I may not have the millions or even the thousands but too, I testing the waters, because I can. As an Exploratory Candidate I am trying to raise awareness to our future needs within our great state and enough donations, to get on the ballot and run a campaign.

Those to whom I may be running against may be of wealthy individuals but money does not win elections, votes do; money just makes it easier to get the word out. Unfortunately, the man with the Gold usually wins but with enough support from those who cherish fishing to education and a need not to cut on disability in reformation there of; I do need some funds to get the word out! You too, can help by contacting say, ten of your friends, referring ten of your friends to check out my website, Facebook Pages, Blog Spot and if you too feel as strong as I do about changing our Country back to which it was founded upon, with less Federal Government incursion, change your voter registration to The Florida Whig Party. As per Paul Truesdell; “ Unlike other political parties, which have an organizational structure that promotes internal political conflict and posturing, the Florida Whig Party has created a structure that is extremely focused on allowing Coalition Leaders to build their organizations, as they deem appropriate. Because "people-will-be-people" and will not always get along with each other, the FWP encourages those who split from a Coalition to create their own coalition and continue their political engagement. Often, Florida political parties will have strong personality conflicts at the county level that leaves many good men and women behind and cast off. This will not happen with the Florida Whig Party. We merely ask that you agree with the majority of the platform, remain open minded, mutually tolerant, and civil. The Executive Board does not govern from the top down, but rather views itself as the central organizer for America's return of a great political party; The Whigs.” We need 1. Registered Voters, 2. Delegates 3. Coalition Leader but most of all we need you in taking back our America!

I am up for a fight! Putting the feet to the fire with regards to numbers. Education and Health care are big issues to our state and unless your on the receiving end, how do you know what is best for me or you? As an elected official, you must follow to what the people of Florida want, not to what the Government wants. They are into our fisheries, health care, education, unions and now purposing a catch share system for the recreational fisherman; what we can or cannot believe in and I say enough is enough! I Want No More! We are sliding more and more away from the Free Market in Florida advertising dollars because the FDA wants our children protected from unapproved advertisements, our Federal Government does not want? Since when did the Feds tell the States what to do? The bribes must stop. You do this or we give you no more funding; since when did a barter system set itself up with in our fiscal budgets of our Federal Government? Florida right to fish laws are being completely ignored. How much more are we going to be forced to put up with? The unnecessary gag shut down will result in a loss of three billion dollars, and 5000 jobs. Do you realize this order by the Czars was done as all the new regulations are done by them, without an economical feasibility study. They skipped that phase because it is quicker and probably would have recommended against it but that is what The NOAA /NMFS Councils do; ruin lives through U.N. Protocol! Why is it that your Governor or Senator has not come forward and said; Article I - The Legislative Branch, Section 10 - Powers prohibited of States: No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation...Tell them what they can do with it! Has nobody have a pair anymore or are they too involved in other interests?

Another by-product to all of this mess are agencies such as NOAA. NOAA is not just about weather, it too is taking your rights away to take your son or daughter fishing. The industry is on a change, put up for sale and now controlled by NGO's, such as PEW and the EDF, with companies behind the scenes, like the Walton Family and the Tyson’s, licking their chops on just how much money they will make off the privatization of your ocean and beaches. By following rules set by NOAA and its Czars and Councils, our Commercial and recreational fishing fleets are floundering in our waters. Championed by NOAA administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco, catch shares and sector management cut the capacity of the fishing fleet dramatically to trickle down economics, only can show how we will lose millions if not billions in tourist dollars to seafood exports because of old rules set by the Federal Government over OUR OWN State waters. Before the Feds wish to take away my disability benefits and yours because of monies in need, why not look into NOAA and its increase to the $5.554 billion dollars awarded to them for more orbiting satellites to tell us what a tornado looks like. Money that could have gone towards a needy cause or, hm...maybe paying off our debt, what a concept!
Get Out and Stay out; administer your own backyard but stay out of mine and as far as Magnuson-Stevens, it needs a revision to the fullest extent, if not either rewritten or abolished all together. Conservation is as good as you put into it and the ways that NOAA is reading the rules, they need to go back to school!
As of late, I have been reading the The Constitution of the United States. It is a fascinating piece of work and other than a few spellings, it could have been written yesterday. It has some enlightening areas to which I wonder when was the last time Congress read it, not looked at it but actually, word for word read its Amendments of 27, as all the Articles within? As the Constitution of the United States of America and our Bill of Rights, we as The Florida Whig Party, support principles before party, personality, and profits, with deeds not words, constructive contribution from all members, and Classical Whig movements and political party efforts from coast-to-coast and border to border . Welcome to the 21st Century Florida Whig Party with historically based principles.

Thank You, Gary A. Anderson

If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”—Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965)
