(CONCORD, NH)(July 11, 2011) Corruption-fighting Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin will announce live on WTPL-FM (WTPLFM.com) that the Iowa precinct caucuses are “un-American” and unconstitutional. Martin’s announcement will be followed by a news conference at the State Legislative Office Building in Concord, New Hampshire,
“The media have been misleading Americans for decades,” Martin charges. “The so-called Iowa caucuses are a disgrace to democracy. All they do in Iowa is try to get their hands in your pockets and grab all the cash they can. These clowns call themselves ‘Christians’ and ballyhoo their religiosity. What a bunch of shameless hypocrites. Jesus was against stoning, but he might make an exception for Iowa Republicans. They greed is execrable.
“Iowa Republicans charge you $15,000 cash up front just to place your name on a ‘straw poll’ ballot that is an integral part of the party’s precinct caucus operation. Recently they were auctioning off ballot position for the straw poll to the highest bidder. In other words, the more money you give these people, the better ballot position they sell you. They don’t even have the gall to do that in Illinois, which is our capital of corruption. This is democracy?
“The sliminess of the Iowa precinct caucuses, and the events leading up to these sleazy events, has never been examined in any detail by the liberal New York media. Well I am about to shine a light on one of the most corrupt aspects of American politics. Iowa. (They must get their training next door in Illinois.)
“Why has no one told the American people that Iowa men and women in uniform who are serving outside Iowa are barred from participation in the caucuses? People who have ‘second shift’ jobs are barred. People who might be absent from Iowa for a multiplicity of valid reasons: barred. The handicapped or those unable to leave their homes at night, including many elderly? Not barred, but severely limited. I repeat: this is democracy?
“I issue this demand to every honorable American and to every honorable Republican presidential candidate: boycott the Iowa precinct caucuses. Boycott Iowa until the Iowa legislature enacts laws that respect democracy and comply with the U. S. Constitution.
“I do not believe that any American, even people who are against the various ‘wars’ in which we are engaged, would argue that our men and women in uniform should be disenfranchised by the Iowa Republican Party or Iowa state law. But that’s the reality.
“Contrast Iowa with New Hampshire: no one has ever asked me for a dime when I campaign in NH. Candidates pay a small fee to get access to the ballot. The State of New Hampshire, which conducts the First Primary and actually counts votes, welcomes every American to New Hampshire and welcomes anyone to run and take their case to the voters of New Hampshire. In New Hampshire they do not auction off ballot position to the highest bidder in ‘straw polls’ which are intended to influence the ultimate primary election result.
“Men and women in uniform get to vote in New Hampshire. Their voices are not silenced by state law and party procedure. I repeat: not one person in New Hampshire has asked for a dime. In New Hampshire, they respect democracy. They count votes, not dollars,” Martin says. “’Priceless,’ as they say in the TV commercials.
“It’s time to put an end to the Iowa precinct caucuses and every state that conducts similar atrocities. These procedures are un-American and unconstitutional. They are an assault on our military. Iowa should be ashamed of how the state treats its men and women in uniform.”
