Goodspaceguy: Defend Small Business: Abolish the Minimum Wage
(Guten tag, Deutschland.)
This is message #47 from me, Goodspaceguy, on my blog Our Spaceship Earth
2015 August 28 (I might revise this from time-to-time.)
2014 October 30: To see videos about candidate Goodspaceguy and his attempt
to raise the living standard into orbital space, go to the internet or
to YouTube and google Goodspaceguy. There you can also see videos by people
who claim to be Goodspaceguy. These other Goodspaceguys may have the goal
of discrediting Goodspaceguy.
Drew Atkins, editor at Crosscut Public Media, also recently released his elaborate
space interview with Goodspaceguy on Crosscut and on KCTS TV. This amusing
interview has also made it to YouTube.
2015 October 27: Goodspaceguy says, "Rent controls destroy the rental markets!"
2015 October 19, Monday : Yesterday I was informed that I, Goodspaceguy,
have been endorsed by the 34th Legislative District Republican Party.
This is helpful for me because I have felt somewhat alone in my past attempts to
un-sabotage our competitive, free-market,capitalistic economy, that works to raise
the living standard.
Of all the economic systems that I know of, free-market, competitive, capitalism
seems to produce the best path to a higher living standard.
We should try to build a Spaceship Earth (Planet Earth) upon which people can
easily find and change work at their different market values. Each different job
that a person gets is like a new classroom.
Property rights are the pathway
To prosperity for the people.

The following statement is suppose to appear in the voters pamphlet for the election ending
on Tuesday, November 3 in King County, Washington State:
Commissioner Position Number Two
10219 Ninth Ave. So.
Seattle WA 98168
University educated in Germany, Sweden, and America,
Goodspaceguy earned Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees (economic minors.)
Shared Corporate Owner Goodspaceguy: “Unsabotage our shared,
competitive, free market!”
Warning: There are several people
(some brilliant) who have been writing and producing under Goodspaceguy’s name
(perhaps to cause him vote loss?) This is entirely unnecessary because
Goodspaceguy can lose votes all by himself just by saying that the anti-free-market,
minimum wage should be abolished so that less-productive, disadvantaged people
can easily get work at their low market value. (Note: Jobs educate! Being
forbidden to work by the minimum wage is terrible.)
You the people of King County own the Port of
Seattle. Why are you subsidizing this business through your property tax and
through your rent? Are you getting a prosperous King County? No! Goodspaceguy
thinks you are getting a lower living standard.
Improving the economy by increasing jobs should be a
goal of the port. Make it easy for the long-term unemployed and the homeless
and the many beggars to get jobs somewhere in our competitive economy (where
supply and demand sets prices.) Unsabotage our economy. Raise the people’s
living standard by increasing production.
To fix your car, hire auto mechanics. To fix your
economy, elect economists who understand business and the profit incentive. At
university, Goodspaceguy spent much time studying business and economics.
Because you have a super-duper high-cost port, Goodspaceguy believes cost
control should be increased. Investor Goodspaceguy, a small spender and a big
saver, has become prosperous. To increase business, Goodspaceguy hopes we will
become willing to use business and economics principles to change from a high
cost port to a low cost port!
To help Goodspaceguy raise the
living standard, please study economics. Read the news. Listen to radio talk
show hosts. Discuss and defend capitalism. Remember: when you vote for big
spending candidates, you are voting to increase taxes and waste and wild, wild
spending (with millions to the terrible tunnel?)
End of voters' pamphlet statement.
2015 July 18. (Revised 2015 August 28)
I plan to revise and add to this message from time to time.
Small business is said to create 80% of the new jobs, so when small business is attacked, jobs decrease. Many other candidates claim that they will increase jobs, but by supporting the minimum wage, they actually decrease jobs.
My name is Goodspaceguy, the small business candidate, and
you the people of King County are the owners of the Port of Seattle, which is a
governmental business. The port taxes you directly through your property tax or
indirectly through your rent (making your rent higher.)
What are you getting for your taxes? I think
you are getting a lower living standard.
By taxing you, your port’s goal
might be to get you to subsidize and improve the Port so that employment will
increase. But because of the huge unemployment caused by the job-destroying
minimum wage, your subsidy to the Port is more than cancelled out: so many
people not working, so many homeless people.
The minimum wage forbids many less
able people to work, which cannot be overcome by the taxes that you pay to the
Port. World economics teaches that the higher the minimum wage, the fewer the
To earn the minimum wage or higher, workers have to produce at the
minimum wage level or higher. Some don’t and lose their jobs. As the minimum
wage goes up, the less able and the less responsible people usually lose their
jobs or don’t even get jobs. It is wrong to use the minimum wage to forbid the
less able to work. When we abolish the minimum wage, jobs will increase and
homelessness will decrease.
To increase jobs and raise the
living standard in the wonderful, competitive, free market, we are suppose to
set wages by supply and demand so let’s abolish the job destroying, minimum
I am also opposed to the restraint
of trade that will be caused by the pending partial merger with the Port of
I, Goodspaceguy, say that work,
wealth, and the competitive free market produce a higher living standard for
the people than our current, sabotaged system. Study world economics and stop
forbidding people to work.
2015 July 17: This message # 47 is a continuation of a work in progress and
will be revised from
Goodspaceguy is one of three
candidates for the position of Port of Seattle Commissioner, Position Two. When
the King County Primary Election ends Tuesday, August 4, 2015, one of the
candidates will have been eliminated, and the surviving two candidates, who get
the most votes, will continuing on to the General Election, ending Tuesday,
November 3, 2015.
There is a lack of cost control at
the Port of Seattle. Thus the port is a high cost port, from which some
customers flee, seeking the use of other ports. The elected five member
Commission should be a supervising watch group that acts to hold down costs.
Goodspaceguy wants to help change the port from a high-cost port into a
low-cost port, which attracts users.
Goodspaceguy wants the Port of
Tacoma and the Port of Seattle to continue competing with each other instead of
engaging in a restraint-of-trade operation named the Northwest Seaport
Alliance. Competition promotes cost control, which should promote more business
for both Tacoma and Seattle, helping to raise the living standard in both
Pierce County and King County. Competition gives you, the people choices.
Competition “to the bottom” actually raises the living standard of the people
the most and helps to lower prices. Competition helps produce a full employment
economy, which is really, really good. I, Goodspaceguy, want to make it easier
for people to produce the good life for themselves: much, much better than the
good life in Sweden.
