Thank you.

Thank you!

First off, I would like to thank the 12,428 Liberty-minded voters in the 96th district who took the time to go to the polls and cast a vote for smaller government, more freedom, and demand fiscal responsibility from our elected officials. Unfortunately, this time around we didn’t obtain enough votes to win the election and our district isn’t quite ready for a Liberty candidate. However, like I always say – you will always get exactly the type of government you vote for. With the re-election of Barack Obama, and other big government statists, we can expect more of the same – a larger, more powerful government, unsustainable debt, reduction of personal Liberties, and our Constitutional rights being slowly usurped.

As I have said to many people on the campaign trail – I am a Ron Paul Republican and will continue to be a Ron Paul Republican. His message of Liberty has spread like wildfire throughout the country this election period, which has caused people like me to do what I never thought I would do – run for office to make a difference. Much like Ron Paul, I may not have won this election, but the people I have reached and the conversations I have had throughout the campaign have been priceless. The election has been lost, but the message of Liberty remains strong and I’m not giving up this easily. This is my first run for a public office, but I certainly can’t see it being my last.

The revolution is alive and well…

For Liberty,

The War On Calories?

Calories are now posted on the menu at McDonald’s thanks again to the government. Printing flyers and posting the information with calorie information in the stores wasn’t enough, so the government is now forcing fast food places to print up new menus with calorie information on them. How ridiculous. Common sense tells me that if you’re eating fast food, you’re not likely too concerned about your calorie intake. Yet another example of unnecessary government involvement in the private sector.

In other news, Mayor Bloomberg out of New York gets his way and bans all “large size” soda purchases. You know, because they know how much soda you should be drinking and you can’t possibly make that decision for yourself.

This type of behavior is disgusting and would not be tolerated by our founding fathers. Don’t allow these statists to continue to control our lives and chip away at Liberty – research your candidates before voting in November.

Economics of Taxation 101

I keep seeing Michigan politicians patting each other on the back about the personal income tax going from 4.35% to 4.25% to 3.9. Then eliminated the “Business Tax” only to turn around and create a “Corporate Tax”. Then they try to explain how the 6% sales tax will sustain these “huge” decreases in revenue. None of these high taxes are truly necessary – just look at Wyoming and South Dakota.

A little information about Wyoming and their taxes:

 

A little information about South Dakota and their taxes:

 

Both of those states enjoy some of the lowest unemployment rates in the country because people and businesses get to keep more of their money. When people and businesses get to keep more of their own money, rather than let government take it from them and squander it, prosperity occurs. Businesses and people are more free to invest and use their money wisely.

Michigan politicians could learn something from this simple economics lesson.

Please share my message and help send me to Lansing this November so that I can present this lesson personally.

National Federation for Independent Business Endorses Chad Dewey

BAY CITY, Michigan – This week the National Federation for Independent Business (NFIB), the nation’s leading small-business advocacy association, has endorsed Chad Dewey’s campaign for Michigan’s 96th District seat.

“I am very honored to receive the endorsement of the NFIB this week.” said Dewey.

“After a careful review of the candidates we have found that Chad Dewey has a keen understanding of the problems facing family businesses and their employees,” said Charles Owens, NFIB State Director. “We wish Chad success in the upcoming election and we look forward to working with him in the Michigan legislature.”

“It is important to understand the economics of how the government can negatively affect business growth,” Dewey explains. “Politicians love to tout how they’re going to create or save jobs if elected, but in reality, the best move the government can make to help job creation is to get out of the way and stop interfering with the free market.”

How I Intend To Serve The People Of Michigan

  • I will vote only within the guidelines of the U.S. Constitution and Michigan Constitution as my oath states.
  • I will vote in favor of preserving Liberty, not restricting it by government intervention. Our government has been consistently usurping our rights by violating the Constitution and the Rule of Law. We all must take a stand for Liberty.
  • I will vote in favor free market principles, I will not choose winners and losers. For example, the government shouldn’t be in the business of giving “tax incentives” or grants to some businesses and not other businesses based on who the government feels is deserving of the incentives or grants. That should be up to the free market to decide, not the government.
  • I will not vote in favor of increasing taxes for anyone, I will vote in favor of reducing taxes for everyone. Taxes only prop up the large government that continues to interfere with our daily lives and spend us into oblivion. If the government can’t afford to stay large with tax cuts, then the government can learn to live within their means. Shed debt and find ways to save money by removing wasteful spending like the rest of us.
  • If adequate time is not given to read a bill, I will vote it down. Some bills are introduced literally seconds before it is voted on. Besides, if a bill is that good, people wouldn’t mind if you took the time to read it rather than rush it through the legislative process.

Chad Dewey Pledges to Block Michigan Obamacare Exchange

Chad Dewey Pledges to Block Michigan Obamacare Exchange

After the Supreme Court’s ruling stating that Obamacare is Constitutionally allowable, Chad Dewey pledges to block the Obamacare Exchange in Michigan.

“The Obamacare exchange passed the Michigan Senate in October, 2011 under SB 693. A quick look at the voting records at Michiganvotes.org shows 100% of Democrats are for it, 50% of Republicans are for it, and 100% of voters are against it.” says Dewey. “These typical politicians are not listening to what their constituents are clearly against and are not representing the voice of the people who voted them in.”

Dewey explains, “SB 693 passed the Senate, but fortunately it stalled in the House. However, we need to vote in people who are against this exchange that allows Obamacare to be easily implemented in Michigan. Passing this piece of legislation would put the burden of the cost of the exchange on Michigan taxpayers and then handing the exchange over to the federal government.” The CATO Institute report on Obamacare Exchanges for individual states supports Dewey’s claim that without Obamacare Exchanges created at the state level, it puts the cost of the exchanges on the Federal government, which would be unable to support the financial burden.

Chad Dewey Signs Americans for Tax Reform “Taxpayer Protection Pledge”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Chad Dewey Signs Americans for Tax Reform “Taxpayer Protection Pledge”

BAY CITY, Michigan – Chad Dewey announced this week that he signed the ATR pledge to “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes”.

“In addition to not increasing taxes, I will also work to lower and eliminate taxes. This includes reducing the personal income tax to zero and eliminating the Michigan corporate income tax.” says Dewey. “The people of Michigan earn their paychecks and should keep their hard earned money rather than have it wasted by their government due to pressure from special interests.”

Dewey explains, “Michigan is a very heavily taxed state and could learn quite a bit from South Dakota and Wyoming; two states that enjoy some of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation and they don’t have a personal income tax or business tax. When you get the burden of the government off the shoulders of people and business, the free market will flourish and it is then you will see prosperity.”

Chad Dewey, the Republican candidate for Michigan’s 96th House district, has also pledged to vote only within the guidelines of the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions, vote in favor of preserving personal Liberties, and vote in favor of free market principles.

Chad Dewey Upset with Failure of Zero Income Tax Amendment

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Chad Dewey upset with failure of Zero Income Tax Amendment

BAY CITY, Michigan – Chad Dewey announced today that he is not happy with the failure of an amendment that would have brought Michigan’s income tax to zero.

“The argument I keep hearing is ‘What will we replace the income tax with?’” says Mr. Dewey, “The answer is easy. Nothing.”

HB 5699 is set in place to drop the income tax from 4.35 percent to 4.25 percent within the next year, while HB 5729 drops the income tax down to 3.9 percent over the next six years.

“The idea that this zero income tax amendment failed tells me that we still have a problem in Lansing and that rather than cut taxes and allow people to spend their own money, they’re not willing to curb the real problem – Lansing spending. Other states such as Wyoming and South Dakota have no income tax or business tax and they enjoy some of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation.”

HB 5699 has passed the House and Senate, while HB 5729 has passed the House and is expected to pass through the Senate.
