Joe the Plumber not an “undecided” after all. Joe was a member of the Natural Law Party. If the unified field, Yogi Fliers, Transcendental Meditation, and the Maharishi mean anything to you, you probably know about the Natural Law Party. Who was the candidate? It was Dr. John Hagelin. The party actual has folks running for office all over America for various government offices.
Joe went On to say he is registered to vote but not a Republican or Democrat because he has voted for both parties. He related to a Fox News reporter that his decision for voting for a candidate is based upon ones character not that he is an eloquent speaker
Joe just isn’t into, “Spreading the Wealth” as Senator Obama explained about tax rates for those who make 250,000 dollars or more.
Joe The Plumber Admits He Wasn’t Undecided After All
Unfortunately, the national media has had a field day with Joe, almost universally reporting that he is an uncommitted voter, even though he doesn’t make the same claim. He certainly is a nice little story for them, but it’s a story they might want to ask some questions about, especially now that they’ve invited a relative unknown to appear on the morning shows.
For starters, according to Ben Smith, he’s not registered to vote. It’s hard to believe that this could be the case; it seems likely that there is some sort of clerical error. For example, his name could be mispelled as Worzelbacher instead of Wurzelbacher in the Lucas County file. (Update: Ben Smith notes that appears to be exactly what happened. ‘Joe’ appears to be a registered Republican under the name of Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher. Also, earlier today at a press conference, Wurzelbacher said he originally registered with the Natural Law Party.)
It also seems odd that he just happens to be buying a business that would earn exactly the amount of money that would qualify it to be a McCain campaign talking point — $250,000. Even more intriguing, McCain-land said they had never spoken with Joe before, but also made the following statement to Ben Smith:
McCain aides say there was no heads-up for Joe the Plumber, who’s headed out to the morning shows tomorrow.
“Joe didn’t know” that he’d be at the center of the debate,” said Matt McDonald.
“We tried to call him during the debate, but his phone was busy,” he said. “We’re not going to put him through media training.”
The Natural Law Party was founded in 1992 in the United States by a group of educators, business leaders, and lawyers in Fairfield, Iowa who practiced Transcendental Meditation. The Natural Law Party was a transnational political party with national branches in over 80 countries.
The party based its platform on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi‘s view that natural law is the supreme organizing principle that governs the universe, and that the problems of humanity are caused by people acting against this natural law. The Natural Law Party claimed that it could realign humanity with this organizing principle through techniques such as the practice of Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program, and problems would be alleviated.
The various Natural Law Parties disbanded over a period of years from 2001-2006.
