GOODSPACEGUY: MESSAGE 40 FOR OUR SPACESHIP EARTH
This is a July 7, 2010 message from me, Goodspaceguy, one of fifteen candidates for the office of US Senator from Washington State to Congress.
I, Goodspaceguy, request that you think of our Earth as a beautiful spaceship, traveling in space around our Sun in our solar system. Also, please think of me and you as crew members of Spaceship Earth, solving problems from the viewpoint that we are the crew of Spaceship Earth.
How high can we raise knowledge and the quality of life? How close can we come to making Washington State into a leading job/wealth growing state? If people allow us to unsabotage our competitive free market economy, our economy can then provide job choices for everyone who wants to work. To increase jobs, please let us build a job and wealth partnership.
Let’s abolish the evil, job-destroying minimum wage in the private sector so that we can get more homeless people and people-with-problems working.
At government-only minimum wages, our national and local governments should become safety-net employers and back their minimum wages by employing as helpers those people (including people-with-problems) who apply for work at the different minimum wages. We need helpers in all areas in which our governments provide services.
The unemployment rate indicates how badly our leaders have sabotaged our job market. Let’s reduce crime and raise the living standard by unsabotaging our economy. Let us grow jobs for everyone who is willing to work. Idleness promotes crime, but work produces the goods and services and income that make-up our living standard. Let us use our unemployed people! Unemployment is a huge waste!
Our economy is like a truck. Economics tells us how to operate and unsabotage our economic truck. Elect small-spending candidates who understand economics. Identify and vote against big spenders.
Some centuries have greatness in them. In about the last hundred years, we Earthlings developed cars, radios, airplanes, movies, television and computerization. We moved from the Horse and Buggy Age into the start of the Space Age. Some areas of Science Fiction have become and are becoming reality. Now a great goal for this new century is for us Washingtonians to help build our Fantastic Future in Orbital Space, the High Frontier!
We should already have more than 200 privately owned habitats in orbit around our Spaceship Earth, around our Moon, around our Sun, and around our Mars, but we don’t. We have already spent the required money, but our leaders have not studied Orbital Space Colonization. Our leaders have misspent our money. We have fallen far below our potential in orbital space colonization, a next big thing.
NASA’s main research project should become “How to live, work, privatize, and prosper in Earth Orbital Space.” Colonists should learn to live in orbital space before going on to Mars. I, Goodspaceguy, already know how. I plan to use NASA in my privatization plan.
I, Goodspaceguy, am a life-long student. I have studied economics and many subjects, including how to raise the living standard and improve the quality-of-life on Spaceship Earth. Let’s build the greatness of the 20th Century into our new 21st Century.
The population explosion on our Spaceship Earth is a cause of many problems: extreme poverty, piracy, slavery, genocide, and war. Refuges flee to Washington State.
People try to avoid taxes. Regressive head taxes would be a much more pleasant method of population control on our Spaceship Earth than staying with the current, cruel methods, such as starvation, disease, murder, genocide, and war. Head taxes can slow the flood of people onto Spaceship Earth. Stop making more people who make more poverty.
Spaceship Earth now has to support more than six people for every one person she supported two hundred years ago. The population on Spaceship Earth continues to grow. Illegal immigration increases. Education, and head tax responsibility-for-children, and birth control are some good ways to stop and reverse the population explosion that is causing poverty and habitat and wild-life destruction on our Spaceship Earth.
Because Maryland donated the land that became Washington D. C., I want the people of Washington D. C. to be allowed to vote in federal elections through the state of Maryland. I, Goodspaceguy, want beautiful Puerto Rico to become our 51st state.
Work builds our living standard. People try to avoid taxation, so we should reduce taxes on working. As a student of economics, the regressive head tax, which encourages work, is the least distortive tax that I, Goodspaceguy, know of.
To increase employment in the private sector, increase profits, defend wealth. Losses create layoffs. Profits create jobs.
I (owner, accountant, economist, handyman, and astronomer) Goodspaceguy, born in Minnesota and educated at universities in Germany, Sweden, and America, earned important minors in economics in my bachelor’s degree and then in my master’s degree. I learned from getting to know many people from different cultures.
I, Goodspaceguy, am a healthy non-smoker, non-drinker, non-drug user, but as a believer in individual freedom and free-will and upward evolution, I believe that each individual should decide whether or not to engage in habits which are harmful to oneself. I, Goodspaceguy, am pro-choice on most everything that doesn’t harm other people. Taxpayers, through their governments, should not incur the wasteful and burdensome cost of interfering. It is important to protect each individual’s ownership over its body.
I am able to read several foreign languages. I am a science fiction fan, an astronomer, an economist, an investor, an owner, and an admirer of beautiful stars in the sky and in the movies. I want to advance technology to new heights, such as the technology of recycling in orbital space colonization. I want our space colonist to learn how to live in orbital space around our Spaceship Earth before going on to our Mars.
I, Goodspaceguy, want us to increase rejuvenation research to regain youth lost.
Dear fellow crew member of our Spaceship Earth: To promote the wealth of the workers, please recommend regressive head-taxes, defend the rule of law and incentive, defend wealthy people, and defend small government. (Big government is a heavy load for us workers to carry.) Increase the incentive to work and invest and grow prosperous. Oppose progressive taxation. Oppose inheritance taxes. Promote the jobs/wealth partnership. Working workers can build a wealthy, prosperous Spaceship Earth.
I, Goodspaceguy, want more stars in our flag.
Because some workers want more leisure, government should lead by creating
flexible, part-time employment programs, such as three and four day work-week options, which would create seven days of service each week and give the workers the amount of leisure that each chooses. Increased leisure improves some people’s living standards.
