Candidate Statement

I’m not here to talk about global warming, possibilities of nuclear war or new variants of diseases, nor am I here to debate the intricacies of gender identification or diversity or any other well-meaning but woke virtue signaling.

I am certainly not going to appeal for federal funds and try to appease Cook County residents by offering a guaranteed income program because I am not seeking to borrow from the future to bring value into the now. 

Our system is already illiquid, we already have a currency crisis imminent.

On top of that, the new SAFE-T Act, effective January 1, 2023, will abolish cash bail for almost every offense, meaning it will put criminals back on the street and violent offenders back on the street. Now I’m all for omitting cash bail for victimless crimes, as I always have been, but in this case I feel like it’s going to be a different level of crime that we’re going to be seeing.

For example, as of January 1st, Chicago police officers will no longer be able to remove trespassers from your residence or your business.

The Libertarian Party offers an immense and organized non-violent civil disobedience campaign. We hope you will join us. Please, please educate yourselves and vote Libertarian on November 8th.

My name is Thea Tsatsos and I am the Libertairan Party candidate for Cook County board president and I hope that you will elect for me and vote Libertarian.

Candidate Q&A

Why are you running?

I am running to serve Cook County residents while presenting an organized, non-violent civil disobedience campaign.

My campaign serves to spread the Libertarian ideas of personal freedom and individual responsibility, and to help further establish the LP as a force in Cook County.

Cook County citizens can help deter crime by fully exercising their right to self-defense. I will be an unwavering voice in support of safe firearm ownership and will advocate for removing restrictions that impede on the rights of our citizens.

The tax burden in Cook County is too darn high. I will be a voice for a tax policy that makes our county an attractive place for families to thrive and businesses to grow.

The Libertarian Party stands for non-aggression, self-ownership, and limited government. These are the principles that will guide me as Cook County's top executive.

After decades of the status quo, it’s time for a fresh perspective for Cook County’s top executive, a crucial position for the Libertarian Party and freedom at large.

What does this office do well, and what needs fixing?

This office is very effective at creating and fostering a dependence on a political machine that is designed to control and manipulate a large, well-meaning, and unsuspecting population while ushing in a completely new system of rules. All controlling with power consolidated in fewer entities.

What is the most pressing issue facing your constituents and how do you plan on addressing it?

Inflation is the single most pressing issue facing residents today, but you're not supposed to know that. Popular media will push a fearsome narrative that global warming, possibilities of nuclear war, or new variants of diseases are the primary concern. These are of course legitimate concerns, but if we continue collectively to ignore the very real issue of illiquidity in the debt market and the hyperinflation that is imminent, then ours will be a very different way of life; a very different set of rules:  One that is based in power and control. Haves and "have nots" - an elimination of the middle class. Inflation, which is a direct result of Federal Reserve notes, fiat currency, being flushed into the system causing purchasing power to be radically diminished - is a hidden tax. But you're not supposed to know that. Your supposed to think that Federal Reserve lowering rates, or "greedy capitalists" gouging consumers is what's causing surging inflation. The truth is that we are being lied to every step of the way.

What specific steps would you take to ensure your office is accessible and responsive to your constituents?

I have an active and engaging presence and always look for free-market oriented solutions where I believe that the human spirit can thrive, where only those closest to the situation have enough knowledge to make good decisions. In a world of "good versus bad", I strive for a reality of "truth versus deception". I am not here to lie, cheat, deceive. Nor do I expect to retire in this position. I see this a service position, and I would like to be of maximum service to HP, to the residents of Cook County and to the Libertarian Party - The Party of Principal.
