Adrian Wyllie received a warm welcome from a packed Libertarian Party of Hillsborough County (LPHC) Wednesday evening, Jan. 23 in at Tate’s Pizzeria and Sports Bar in Tampa, Fla.
Wyllie, who serves as current Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida (LPF) and is currently campaigning as the Libertarian Gubernatorial Candidate for the 2014 Elections in Florida, was greeted by one of the largest crowds in LPHC history.
Wyllie spent about 30 minutes discussing his platform, and concluded the meeting by conducting a question and answer session with the audience.
Wyllie discusses litmus test for proposed legislation
Adrian Wyllie discussed his four step litmus test regarding proposed legislation submitted for signature after passing both legislative bodies in Tallahassee (Fla.) prior to approval for new laws across the state.
- Constitutionality – Any legislation submitted for approval must be considered Constitutional by the strictest interpretations of both the Florida and U.S. Constitution.
- Necessity – The legislation must be a necessity for long-term use for Florida, and not a “knee-jerk reaction” bill proposed in the “heat of the moment” to counteract an immediate issue receiving attention from the mainstream media
- Must solve cause of problem – The legislation but be written, enacted, and enforced in a manner that addresses the “root” or cause of the problem, and not simply a “band aid” type solution used to temporarily take care of an issue the state government must confront and further fund in the coming months and years.
- Affordability – Even if the proposed legislation meets all three of the provided criteria, it will not be passed if the state budget in Florida cannot afford to fund it.
Wyllie presents the three pillars of his political platform
After explaining his litmus test regarding proposed legislation submitted for his approval, Wyllie presented the three pillars of his political platform to the audience.
- Competing Currencies Act – Wyllie proposes a Competing Currencies Act that would allow for the creation of a state currency to insulate Florida from the pending hyperinflation. This will take place due to the enormous amounts of debt accumulated by the federal government and continuous printing of money used to postpone the unavoidable economic collapse. The economic meltdown will ensue once the sustainability of the current policy of printing money and adding to the trillions of dollars of federal debt ceases to exist.
- Intrastate Commerce Act – The federal government uses the Interstate Commerce Clause as a tool to further erode any and all elements of state sovereignty once guaranteed to each of the 50 states by the tenth amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Any goods produced requiring manufacturing in more than one state Congress deems subject to the clause, which forces federal taxation and regulation regarding the products use within Florida. Wyllie proposes enabling every step of the production and marketing process to take place within the state borders on Florida. This Intrastate Commerce Act would provide relief from all Florida consumers from the federal taxation and regulation of goods currently sold across the state.
- Tyranny for Federal Government – The federal government attaches stipulations upon any funding requested from the state of Florida. This process, also referred to as “the carrot and the stick” method of enticement, promises to grant a state money it may need to initiate or complete a project IF the government of that state agrees to accept increased federal government intervention into state affairs. The end result is the further erosion of state sovereignty and the loss of individual liberties and personal freedom. Adrian Wyllie promises to nullify federal laws and mandates considered to violate the Florida Constitution and the U.S. Constitution. Wyllie promises to stand strong, stop, and reverse the effects of interference into state affairs from Washington, D.C.
