A New Video Series from Gigi Bowman: How She’s Running for Office on A Liberty Platform

This is a series about running for office for the first time. Not knowing what I’m doing just knowing there is passion and drive behind it –like all Liberty Candidates we are not career politicians or politicians at all –we’re just citizens of the United States who care about our communities and our children and want the same freedoms for them that we have grown up with –but we seem to be losing our liberties more each day. I want to have a say in what’s happening –I can no longer sit back and watch. I’m going to share with you my experiences because if I can do this you can too.

The only reason to run for office is to repeal and Nullify all the laws and legislation that are stopping us from living a free life. From the TSA to the NDAA to the reason that Hemp is illegal in this country we need to find a way back to where we could get on with our lives without living in fear of our Government.

I hope that my experience gives you inspiration that you can do it to. I’m a real estate agent and a mom and wife not a politician.

This series is inspired by the book of the same name “How to Run for Office on a Liberty Platform” written by Liberty Candidates. I am the President and Creator of http://www.libertycandidates.com. You can find the book on our website.

If you are running on a platform of liberty please fill out our application.

Thank you for watching.

Where is the Anger? NY “Safe” Act

100_7196

I want to know where is the anger on Long Island towards the legislators who voted for this? Where is a call for the legislators to explain themselves? Why are the people on Long Island who are involved in the Republican party still asking for donations and having fundraisers and patting each other on the back? When will the people of Long Island who call themselves Republicans and Conservatives STOP BEATING A DEAD HORSE? What will they do, slap their local Senator and Assemblyman on the wrist and say “bad”. I’m sorry but HOLD THESE PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE! Lets face it –there are more people in their districts who are against guns (for lack of education) than for them –so giving away our 2nd Amendment even though YOU HELPED THEM GET INTO OFFICE– is not as important as KEEPING THAT JOB and to do that they pandered to the highest count of voters and it wasn’t YOU!

They are traitors and no one is saying a thing….. Well, I’m saying something –I’m running for office now because I’m MAD!

“This is an award that will be given yearly to 5 people who showed positive effort and energy throughout the year in spreading the message of liberty. They did not have to run for office, but they did have to inspire others to step up, do something that helped to bring people together, or enlighten others by growing the liberty movement in some manner by taking on a leadership role of some sort or by creating a new platform for inspiration — whether it be media, news, music, or just speaking out in some way that may have brought about positive change.

Rules: Please email your nominations to hello@libertycandidates.com. Express why you think they should receive this award. Each person can choose up to 3 people. The comments will be listed with the winning names (anonymously if you wish; just tell me so).

Liberty Candidate Wraps Up His Campaign in a Great Letter

Hi all,

This is Rob Lombardo. I wanted to send out my thoughts wrapping up the 2012 campaign and looking toward the future. I’ve copied additional friends who may not be on the Libertarian Activists mailing list, but who are also lovers of liberty (FYI, those of you not on the list will not be able to reply to it but you can certainly respond to me if you would like). Forgive the length. I don’t go on like this a lot, so indulge me this once:

I’d like to begin by telling a quick story from the ol’ campaign trail:

After it became likely that the Libertarian Party would not gain ballot access for the 5th Congressional District race, I was encouraged to seek out the Independent Party nomination since they had the slot available. The chances seemed slim, as it was suspected that they would simply nominate the Republican, Andrew Roraback and their first order of business was to nominate the very anti-Liberty Rocky Anderson for President.

I saw an opening though. As Rocky Anderson gave a lengthy acceptance speech, rife with altruistic and utopian nonsense of a nanny-state government, he railed against the 2-party duopoly. This particular issue resonated, understandably and appropriately, with the Independent Party delegates. So I quickly tweaked my prepared remarks to bring in allusions to the 2-party duopoly as I tied in the Independent Party’s local successes to my strong support for federalism. Not to toot my own horn, but my speech was awesome, and I left the stage to a resounding applause. Senator Roraback followed with a dry oration with little, if any, substance. It was no more than a rambling “pretty please”. After the speeches, I actually thought I was in! But where things got all Twightlight-Zoney was when one delegate, a man who described himself as “libertarian” and who I chatted with beforehand with many agreements, actually forwarded the motion to nominate Senator Roraback! A delegate eventually moved to nominate me, amid the chairman’s repeated calls for “any other nominations”. It seemed like the delegate simply nominated me out of mercy to spare me the embarrassment of having no support at all. When the votes were tallied I was soundly defeated 15-3.

I couldn’t believe it! After my great speech and after all the ranting against the 2-party duopoly, the so-called Independent Party nominated a member of that very same system they jeered. The “libertarian” delegate found me afterwards and said that he just felt Senator Roraback’s name-recognition would “bring more attention to their party and help them keep ballot access”.

The reason I am telling this story is that, being the candidate, I had to smile and nod politely and be gracious in defeat. I couldn’t give this guy the figurative smack in the head he desperately needs. What’s the point of having ballot access if you repeatedly nominate another major party candidate, as the Independent Party did all across the state this year, and has done quite often in past elections as well? How does it help to break the 2-party duopoly if you prevent outside candidates from getting in the race? These questions drove me crazy and probably turned my face blood-red as he was explaining his pathetic excuse. But, I had to smile and nod, thank him for his consideration, and wish them all well.

What I really could have used, not so much after the fact, but circulating beforehand, was supporters. Supporters who, unlike the candidate, can get down and dirty in caucuses and mingling groups and point out how nonsensical some voters are behaving… even ones that describe themselves as libertarians! The candidate can’t be the bad cop. Think of the soon-to-be unemployed Congressman Joe Walsh of IL.

We have got to get more people involved to not only be candidates but to be these supporters too… get in the game! And these people have to come primarily from those receiving this email. There are spectators; there are cheerleaders; and there are those actually on the field. We do need more candidates, but if that is not your cup of tea, that is OK, just get out there. The sign-waving, the ‘Facebooking’, and donating money are things that I would call cheerleading. And that is not to diminish any of those things. We need them to continue and they are greatly appreciated. If they are honestly all you have time or ability to do, then by all means keep it up and we will be grateful. But if you can, and I have to believe there are more, GET IN THE GAME. Run for office or help out in the campaigns of those of us who are doing so.

I share Dan Reale’s frustration. The enthusiasm that some of us show when we are comfortably behind a keyboard can be multiplied if it is shown out there in the field. I am deeply indebted to the few who actually got out and helped me petition. But honestly, I had hopes of a lot more and was pretty disappointed with the actual “boots on the ground” support I received; with all the energy around Ron Paul, and the 5th district supposedly being Ron Paul’s best in the Constitution State, and me being 99% in line with Ron Paul. What happened? To get me on the ballot we ended up frantically draining our coffers to pay a collection of knucklehead mercenaries whom I wouldn’t trust to watch a sandwich… and we botched the filing anyway! It ended up being essential to get our senate and presidential candidates on the ballot but I find little comfort in that given the time I put in myself.

We need these boots on the ground. We need people engaged. Yes, we need your money too, but help us to put it to good use! If we have more candidates, then where offices/districts overlap we can piggyback off one another. If we have more supporters physically out there they can confront people like the “libertarian” from the Independent Party and push a little harder without creating a Joe-Walsh-YouTube-moment (well, don’t get that obnoxious either way).

And we most certainly need to start early. Given this year’s experience in petitioning; learning what to expect and how to identify locations, I am convinced that had I begun in May, I would have easily reached the target. Had I begun in March, I could have done it entirely on my own. I can recall days with good weather at the right place and the right time I was pulling in 20 seemingly good signatures per hour.

We need to plan, and with the added challenges of ballot access and being the severe underdog in any race, we must do it well in advance of the Republicrats. We need “ground games” and that is why we need more people engaged. A team of people can have a ground game. One person by themselves can only have an illusion and a hell of a lot of stress.

Personally I would really like to hear from people on this mailing who can pledge to actually get involved, beyond cheerleading. Even though we don’t know who is doing what yet, we have to know who will be on the field because before you know it, it will be time to get moving again.

Now as far as what to do: All of the above. There are some who believe we need to grow the Libertarian Party, and some who believe we change the Republican Party from within. Some think we should focus on low level offices and build slowly, and some think we need to go for federal office. Some think we can change trajectory before a massive collapse, and some think we need to just prepare. While it would certainly be beneficial to all be unified and working on the same page, that is just not realistic. So instead of debating what is better or what is worse, what will work and what won’t, while precious time slips by, we ought to accept that there will be differences of opinion and as long as our goal is liberty we ought to support one another. Maybe I think the changing the Republican Party is a waste of time, but if someone here is working on a town committee and pushing for a Republican Liberty candidate, I should still help out if I can. Maybe I think seeking federal offices are better for attacking the roots of the problems, but I should still help out state and municipal candidates. Maybe I think we have time to stop the impending disaster, but I should still support any related prepper initiatives. Let’s not bring each other down and waste time arguing about it.

So anyway, assuming certain things, such as me still living here, I still have my eye on the 5th District again for ‘14, and I am considering Brookfield’s Board of Selectmen for ’13. Who’s going to be on the field with me? What are you going to do? Even if it is a smaller project, a Board of Ed campaign, anything at all… if I can reasonably be of assistance, then count me in! But let’s hear about it!

In Liberty, For Liberty,

Robbo

Liberty Candidate, Senator Randi Shannon, Resigns from Office


From: The Office of the Senator of the Republic of the United States of America,

And The Republic for Iowa, Senator Randi Shannon

 

 

Hello everyone, my name is Randi Shannon, and I have been honored to be Iowa’s Republican Candidate for The Office of State Senator in District 34.  The support I have received from so many in this district has been just incredible! I will never forget your commitment to my campaign!

 

I want to especially thank my fellow Ron Paul for President Supporters, My Fellow Members of Liberty, My Friends who home school as did I, the many Pro-Life Members who have been so supportive of my candidacy over these past few months, and of course all my supporters in the Republican Party who have offered me so much help and encouragement, including many Republican Office holders here in Iowa, I promise you, your efforts on My behalf will be remembered.

 

Let me now announce to everyone in Iowa, I have become aware of the existence of the Original Republic for The United States of America.“We the People” re-inhabited our lawful de jure (de jur- “by right of lawful establishment”) government on March 30th, 2010.  This is The Republic founded in 1787 and then abandoned during The Civil War in the 1860s.

 

It was then replaced in 1871 by the UNITED STATES CORPORATION. (de facto-without law). This Unlawful Corporate Democracy, established by the forty-first congress, has been acting as though it is the “official government” which clearly it is not! In point of fact, it is the reason why “We the People” Instead of Experiencing Freedom and Prosperity, suffer under the weight of Oppressive Statutes and an Out of Control, Monstrous National Debt which is Robbing Us and All Future Generations of Americans of Our Treasure and Our Legacy for which Our Founding Fathers’ so Valiantly Fought and Died.

 

And Remember This! Where the de jure Republic of The United States of America exists the de facto UNITED STATES CORPORATION, having no standing, must go away!

Now, knowing this, and with the best interests of The People of Iowa District 34 uppermost in my heart and out of respect for my own conscience, I am here to announce that I am ending my campaign as of this July 4th, 2012.  Trust me this story does not end here nor does my commitment. In fact, my level of service to the good people of Iowa who have been so supportive of me and my campaign will be greatly increased.  Please allow me to continue, because I have some great news to share with all of you!

I have learned from my participation in campaigns that no matter who we elect, there’s no positive change.  The same talking points are used; “lower taxes, education reform, we need to end BIG GOVERNMENT PORK etc”.  We cast our votes, and for the most part, we are no better off. Our taxes go up and while we are losing our liberties in the name of security, our country becomes more divided.  New executive orders are issued, BIG GOVERNMENT INTRUSION into our private lives is on the rise and the Peoples’ despair grows and deepens. What Hope is there for any solutions from THE UNITED STATES CORPORATION?

 

In fact, that which happens is all too often nothing like what’s been promised. I know you feel very disaffected as I’ve heard this from so many of you with whom I’ve visited with these past several months.

I want you to know I feel the same! Unfortunately despair is rampant in our country today and with good reason!

 

Over the past several decades the quality of life for The People of Iowa has been eroding. Our individual earnings have dropped, we have skyrocketing inflation,  our public education system is a disaster, and THIS BLOATED GOVERNMENT we cannot afford just keeps on growing. 

 

American Entrepreneurism is all but dead. If the needs of “We the People” were being properly addressed,

THE UNITED STATES CORPORATION would have brought about changes that would have led to a vast and growing economy with prosperity for all who want it.  Therefore, The American Dream in Iowa and all over this country would be alive and well and Our Succeeding Generations would truly be better off as a result. 

 

Instead, ours is an economically weak nation with the dollar on the very brink of collapse! We now find corruption at virtually every level of government and hardly ever is anyone made to answer for it.  Just like Eric Holder, they refuse to answer and often as not they are rewarded. Where’s the law? and Public Accountability?

 

This Corrupt System is just like an out of control freight train heading at full speed toward the river where the bridge has been washed out by a flood brought on by their own acts in violation of the Public Trust,  and their Oaths to The Constitution of Iowa and The Republic of The United States of America.   

 

Remember, THE UNITED STATES CORPORATION was changed from The Republic, and since then, we have seen a plethora of Statutes passed as if they were Law without the consent of “We the People”. With the abandonment of The Republic, and especially following 1871, the abuses of the UNITED STATES CORPORATION heaped upon the American People and the Peoples of the International Community have been inestimable and unconscionable.  In this, I cannot and  will not have a share!

 

From the President on down, many of these so-called servants of the The People have repeatedly violated their oaths of Office, their fiduciary responsibilities, and in every way imaginable they’ve committed the most

egregious acts against “We the People” of the United States of America and People around the world. They have continually violated the People’s Trust. Be fooled no longer, that Trust is broken beyond repair!

Therefore, in order to affect the most good on behalf of The People of Iowa’s 34th District and in keeping with my conscience, I have accepted the position of U.S. Senator in The Republic of The United States of America, where I may better serve You and All of The People of Iowa.  I want you to know I have taken an Oath to Uphold, Support and Defend The Constitution of The United States of America.   This I will do to the best of my ability, So Help Me God. 

 

As Your Senator from Iowa in The Republic of The United States of America I will be especially focused on the following areas:

 

 [First] As someone who home schooled my kids has been Committed to and Achieved Educational Excellence for my own family, I whole heartedly support and will work with my Colleagues in The Republic Congress who plan to eliminate the Department of Education when it transfers to The Republic from THE BANKRUPT UNITED STATES CORPORATION.  Educational Excellence first and foremost is the result of personal commitment; first by parents, and then by the students themselves. We don’t need to spend more on education to achieve better results; just note how the opposite has proven to be true. Point of Fact, Home Schooling, which costs taxpayers nothing, often accomplishes the best result!

However, not everyone can or may want to make this choice for their family and may see advantages to Community, Private, Charter, Internet and/or Televised School systems.  If we are truly dedicated in our quest for Educational Excellence, then we need free market competition in the area of education, and we need to leave it to families and their students in Iowa and in Our Republic to make the choices that best serve them and meet their needs. This reflects my commitment to you, and on this I will not waver!

 

[Second] I am absolutely committed to our men and women in uniform who serve our country, and for them that means “No More Undeclared Wars”!  Their Blood is Too Precious to be spilled needlessly in far away countries where there is no threat to Our Republic.  The Lives of our service men and women are of

Such Exceeding Value as not be lost or even put at risk for the enrichment of those who profit as a result of war and so called Nation Building-Police Actions.  As your Senator in The Republic of The United States of America, I will never vote for or in any other way support such actions! I am Bound by My Oath to The Constitution of Republic of The United States of America which places limits upon me, while I serve in office, and I appreciate these limits as lawful and necessary in the performance of my duty to The People of Iowa.  I want you to know, I Take My Oath Very Seriously!

 

[Third] As Your Senator in The Republic of United States of America, Our Unalienable Rights Shall be protected, and First Among These “Life” shall be protected from the “Moment of Conception On”.  I refer everyone to “The Republic for Iowa-Life Affirming Proclamation” a copy of which I can provide by email. This Proclamation has My Endorsement and My Vote!

 

[Forth] Every concern which The People of Iowa have regarding GOVERNMENTAL ABUSE, such as the high cost and unconstitutionality of Obama-care and current healthcare costs, the invasive, insufferable acts committed by the TSAs  at Airports, Taxation at Obscene levels, and the list goes on and on, are all problems brought on by The “de facto” UNITED STATES CORPORATION.

 

By serving as your Senator in The Republic Congress, I am restrained to voting in line with Our Republic for The United States Constitution, which by the way does not contain the 14th Amendment or any thereafter as these are the product of “The De facto” UNITED STATES CORPORATION, and have no basis in Our Constitution. Therefore, “they are Their Problems” and when you join The Republic of The United States of America, they are no longer your problems! And as your Senator, I Proclaim here today that I am determined that “Their Problems” will never again become your problems in The Republic!

 

Again, Remember, where the de jure Republic of The United States of America exists the de facto UNITED STATES CORPORATION, having no standing, must go away!

 

I want you to know how very much I look forward to serving you and all of The People of Iowa as your United States Senator in The Republic of The United States of America, which truly is One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All!

 

For those of you having difficulty understanding the reasons for my decision, I want to refer you to the websites <republicfortheunitedstates.org> and <republiccongress.org>.

 

I thank you so very much for your thoughtful attention! And I look forward to addressing your concerns in Our Republic of The United States Congress!

In Faithful Service to The People of Iowa,

 

United States Senator, Randi Shannon
