Congressional Hopeful C. Mason Weaver intrigues at UCSD

Tony Baiz, Staff Writer

“Government is a fungus, you don’t feed a fungus”, rang out when Congressional hopeful C. Mason Weaver spoke in the Warren Lecture Hall at UCSD on Tuesday February 16th. He gave an enthralling 40 minute speech on where he stands politically, his experiences with liberal professors in college and their rhetoric, and his time spent serving our country during the Vietnam War. He spoke to the UCSD College Republicans in honor of Black History Month as a candidate for the 53rd Congressional district. Mr. Weaver covered a variety of topics from President Barack Obama and his policy in the White House, as well as his life story and its significance in shaping his career.

Mason Weaver spent a considerable amount of time discussing the country’s recession and economic crisis by citing basic addition and subtraction to demonstrate what is happing with the common American worker and the country’s economic crisis. He explained that socialism would fail for the same reason as slavery, because “On the plantation every slave had a job, but no slave had an income.” He also argued that “You get out of a recession by cutting taxes, period.” In the middle of his speech Weaver also spoke about his college experience at University of California Berkeley, and his encounters with many biased and liberal professors. He finished the topic with a witty jab at the liberal bias inherent in the University, jokingly asking “Do you know the difference between communists at Vietnam and Communists at Berkeley? In Vietnam we got to shoot the communists”.

Weaver finished his speech by explaining to the audience what he wants to for the nation, the state of California, and his district in which he is hoping to win. He said we will “see him every hour on the hour on TV on the channel C-SPAN”, working for the best interests of his district and the country. He finished with letting the College Republicans know that 2010 will be a pivotal year for the GOP in winning seats into the Congress and Senate, and it is all up to us as Americans to stand up for what we believe in. One of his final comments to the students was “You do not have to risk your life, but you do need to stand up and be counted.” It was an appropriate and wise way in finishing his speech, in what turned out to be an entertaining and enlightening visit.

Below is his press release regarding his speech at UCSD:



LA JOLLA – Speaking at a meeting of the College Republicans at UCSD Tuesday night, C. Mason Weaver told them they can participate in a historic American revolution during the next election cycle.

“There’s an American revolution going on right now,” predicted Weaver.  “You’re going to witness it this next election cycle.  You should be paying attention because you’re going to tell your grandkids about the great revolution in 2010 when the American people rose up and took their government back.”

Weaver shared his college days with the students, when he joined radical groups trying to gain equal rights for African-Americans. Once those rights were obtained, he said he felt free to join in and compete in a society of capitalists.

Although America is still the richest nation on earth, our tax-and-spend policies and government regulations are ruining our prosperity and the innovation of future generations, Weaver warned the students.

“America is the strongest nation on the planet. In every way you can describe strength, we’re the strongest,” said Weaver. “Our gross national product is 14 trillion dollars…the next four countries combined doesn’t equal 14 trillion dollars.”

Yet, he countered, American debt is so massive that $600,000 is now owed per family and $787 billion of the $899 billion in circulation was taken out of the marketplace through President Obama’s stimulus packages, Weaver said. Taxes may soon reach 60% just to pay the bill, he said.

“Why would you get up in the morning and go to work if they’re going to take away 60 percent just to pay off the interest on the debt?” Weaver questioned the students. “What’s going to happen to American prosperity, ingenuity? What’s going to happen to your thought pattern? Why would you even make or produce anything if they’re going to tax everything you produce? Why would you pay off a mortgage?

“That’s going to create an environment where you have no ingenuity. Socialism doesn’t innovate because there’s no motivation to do that. Socialism manages what capitalists create. …they want to tax, regulate and control what you have produced.”

Weaver says economic turnaround has consistently happened only by reducing taxes. “Whatever you tax, whatever you tax, you decrease. If you want to get rid of government costs, it’s real simple. Stop requiring government to take care of every problem you have.

“We are entering the second American Revolution,” said Weaver. “It’s a great time. But unlike the first American Revolution, you don’t have to risk your glory and your fortune. You don’t have to risk your livelihood and life…but you do have to stand and be counted. You have to show up.”
