Vote for Best Candidate Even if Third Party

Former Huntington, West Virginia Mayoral Candidate Dale Anderson II, a member of the Board of Directors of the Huntington Tea Party and a former Liberty Candidate, supports a “best candidate” choice, even if they are a member of a third party.

Anderson said in a press release, “The idea of throwing away votes to a third party candidate, is a emotional tactic used by both political parties. That argument plays on the emotional state of voter, Its not legal or logical. Our founders spoke plain and clear against this idea. The Bible and the Constitution are the measuring stick for anyone seeking public office. Voting for party nominee’s isn’t necessarily the best candidate. I urge you to follow the founding principles this nation was founded on and continue to be a defender and champion of our beloved Constitution.

He continued, “As our founding fathers stood against tyranny and oppression from the throne of King George III so we shall stand against the tyranny and oppression our Republic faces today, our duty is to defend the Constitutional Republic. The greatest compromise in American history took place in 1776, and it’s call the U.S. Constitution. No further compromise is required.”

Finally, Anderson reminded that “our votes on November 6th 2012 are like the muskets of 1776. I urge my fellow citizens, whom I see as defenders of this Republic founded on both the Bible and the Constitution to exercise your right to vote for candidates that support the principles contained in both documents [the Bible] and [the Constitution]. If your unable to find a candidate that meets these qualifications and this is a real problem today within the Democratic and Republican Parties consider yourself a candidate and seek only to serve the people according to our founding principles.”

“The organizers of Paul Fest have been very helpful in working with my staff to avoid scheduling conflicts with our rally on Sunday, and I am very appreciative of the flexibility they’ve shown and the enthusiasm with which they’ve embraced our plans. I am confident that the hard work by the Paul Fest organizers will result in a great time for all those attending their event.” stated the Congressman.

As a special promotion, organizers are holding a ticket raffle and prize give-a-way.  Prizes include a Skype-date with the sultry sensation Tatiana Moroz, tickets to LibertyFest NYC, the premier of Atlas Shrugged and many more.  Anyone who buys a ticket or a Ronvoy package between now and Aug. 8th are entered into our drawing.  For more information please visit: http://www.paulfestival.org/77-general-information/253-paulfestival-ticket-raffle-and-prize-give-a-way

The confluence of events taking place in Tampa are shaping up to be quite a spectacle.  Besides the official RNC eventsPaul Festival, theRally at the Sundome, the Veterans’ MarchCamp Liberty, not to mention the Ronvoy parade through Tampa, this August is sure to be an historical time for the Liberty movement, which is the proving itself as the fastest growing political movement in recent history.

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

Gigi Bowman Speaks Out about the Romney Endorsement(s) from Liberty Candidates

This is what I see: The people MENTIONED in this video [below] are the people on my “list” of those who will sell out –including the speaker in the video. By selling out I MEAN “playing the game” to get in –which eventually leads to winning –not on principle but on compromise.

Hey, if this “compromise” thing works then I am wrong. But what is it about Ron Paul that we all love? Is it because he compromised? (and when he had to compromise and “play” Republican by having to endorse candidates we were totally opposed to like Lamar Smith –that really angered  and turned off many to voting completely).  No!, We love Ron Paul because he has stood on principle in the house for 30 years and fought the fight no one else had the guts to take on. THAT is what we love about Ron Paul.

And it is what we love about our Liberty Candidates running on a platform of LIBERTY and Principle and we believe that they will NOT COMPROMISE which is why we give them the torch of liberty to carry on in Ron Paul’s path…..

But this year we have watched Senator Mike Lee and Senator Rand Paul –two Liberty Candidates  — turn around and endorse Romeny. And it saddens us because we believed these guys would stand on principle while in the house.

So is it the job itself that causes men to turn from principle? Is this what we can expect every time we get a man in office? That they will turn and start “playing a political game” in order to succeed?

Well how come Justin Amash, Glen Bradley, Jenn Coffey are not compromising?

Then lets start at the bottom folks. Lets start by supporting Liberty Candidates running for local and state office that will take on the establishment on PRINCIPLE.

Or do we have to have no principles in order to GET principle?

When are we all going to be brave and fight the fight without having to play the game?

I’ve always been totally against those that wanted to fight this fight with compromise. I call those people the sell-outs. I have my list and so far that list is on target. The people I believed to be all about compromise –the ones that bit the hand that fed them so they could appeal to the status quo; the ones who needed to get on the inside of the GOP no matter what they had to surrender in order to do that; the ones who, it appears, used the liberty movement to get further in their political careers…..

The bottom line is I’d rather die with my principles then be fake or phony or have to “play a game to get in”. There are organizations based on this. There are those who will only run through the GOP or the Democrat Party because they believe you have to go through one in order to win and they help to keep this Hegelian Dialectic alive and kicking……. even our biggest third party has played this game of ‘compromise’ in the last two election cycles.

This saddens me the most.

The only thing I can think of to do is have the Ron Paul supporters of principle (not the COMPROMISERS) go to the party of Liberty and take that back and bring it to the Party of the rEVOLution.

It’s already there for us –waiting. And the compromisers and sellouts…they can keep their GOP and their DEM party. I want no part of either one because it seems youALWAYS have to compromise and sell your soul to be in it.   “Play the game to win”.

NOT DOING IT!

Why Big Business Candidates Usually Become Big Government Politicians

By Liberty Candidate 2011,

Daniel de Gracia

 

 

 

HAWAII, May 31, 2012 — As congressional candidates square off in primaries across America, one of the most frequently invoked justifications for choosing one party personality over another is “business experience.” We’ve all heard the campaign tagline a million times: “So-and-so’s years of experience in business will help turn around our government and put our nation back on track.” But does experience running a company really make a candidate more qualified for office?

Thinking Carefully About Policy and Profits

In the early days of the Republic, America was a sparsely populated, largely agrarian nation. Legislators often served short careers in office and usually introduced inchoate laws – that is, bills they expected to pass on an as-needed basis. Congressional workload was light to moderate, with most legislators using family members as staff and the topics which came before committees were ones which could be resolved with minimal technical experience.

Today, Congress is a vastly different institution from its origins. Immense expertise on a dizzying array of matters is in high demand as Congress insists on legislating increasingly complex matters ranging from domestic economics to international affairs to even advanced scientific research.

The rise of the “2,000-page bill” introductions along with an already confusing myriad of existing laws, regulations, agency traditions and licensing regimes often force legislators to depend on lobbyists and expert staff members to know what needs to be done. Amidst this chaotic environment, it is argued that a candidate with prior business experience will be the best to handle the so-called “gridlock” of Washington and serve America.

The problem, however, with candidates with business backgrounds – especially those with big business experience – is that running a company well is not the same thing as running a government. In a business, profit-seeking is the core of any successful company. While a company that expands its production and increases its profits may be extremely popular among shareholders, a government that increases its tax revenues and upgrades its operations using “business methods” is essentially becoming better at stealing from taxpayers and more efficient at bossing people around.

As the ancient Greek author Thucydides famously warned in History of the Peloponnesian War, “as the power of Hellas grew, and the acquisition of wealth became more an object, the revenues of the states increasing, tyrannies were by their means established almost everywhere.” Said another way: Want government to help you and your friends get rich? Then use government to rig the market!

Consider this: In a total free market absent any government, no taxes exist; therefore, where revenues minus costs equal profits, money made by businesses goes to paying wages (purchase of labor) and investing in more business (purchase of capital).

Since a free market also has no government-controlled central bank to artificially dilate or contract the money supply through interest rates, the amount of money in the market is relatively stable and combined with increasing efficiency of production, the more “free” a market is, the cheaper products get and ultimately, profits fall.

Liberty Candidate Glen Bradley introduces Bill to Nullify the NDAA Law

http://www.ncleg.net/House/pictures/607.jpg

 

Liberty Candidate now running for State Senate,  Glen Bradley of the North Carolina General Assembly, has introduced a bill on May 16th, titled “Opposition to NDAA” and numbered H.R. 982 to tackle the NDAA federal detention law through statewide nullification.

Rep. Bradley has been officially endorsed by Ron Paul which I discovered via email due to the fact that he has fought constantly for the people and their rights in his district for the General Assembly of North Carolina and now he wishes to be elected to be senator of the State.

H.R. 982 already has two sponsors and two cosponsors. The sponsors are Rep. Bradley and Rep. Larry G. Pittman. The cosponsors are Rep. Jeff Collins and Rep. Jonathan C. Jordan. On May 17th it has passed the firth reading and was Referred to the  Committee on Rules, Calendar, and Operations of the House and is awaiting on a vote before it can leave the committee to even be voted on in the general house chambers.

Right around the same time which the bill was introduced I under USWGO has, for two months(first attemptsecond attempt), attempted to get State Senator Phil Berger to go against the NDAA law, which even includes giving a report on the NDAA which I created via a Independent Investigation and a Petition with signatures from over 215 constituents (3-5 signatures were not from Rockingham Co. or were from Virginia) to get my state senator to go nullifying the NDAA by introducing legislation in the state legislature similar to Virginia and Arizona. Also the petition and report was also given to Rep. Bryan R. Holloway and Bert Jones.

Although the strategy was altered when a New York Federal Judge ruled an injunction against the Indefinite Detention of the NDAA on Constitutionality grounds. Of course since that ruling can be overturned by the Obama Administration and the fact that theCongress still supports the Indefinite detention and torture of American citizens is very troubling.

With 42% Dale Anderson II Brought Liberty to the Table in his Mayoral Race.

Liberty Candidate, Dale Anderson II Lost his primary with 42% and what he brought to the table was Liberty. He may not have won but it just proves that we’re all winning when we change the name of the game.

Dale Anderson II stands on conservative and constitutional principles. He and his team knew how to organize at the grassroots level. The result? Anderson received 42% of the vote in the Republican primary election.

“You have to sell ideas to the voters,” Anderson said in a Tuesday night interview. “What I did made the race close.”

Since the primary, Dale Anderson and Mayor Kim Wolfe have been exploring “working together.” However, they still disagree on “critical” issues.

Those challenges as Wolfe would phrase them originate from a variance in ideological variances. Wolfe told HNN in a  March 27 interview that “government is about compromise.” On the other hand, Anderson stressed to HNN Tuesday, May 22, “Compromise is bad nine times out of ten. It’s what got us into the mess of spending more money than we have. God does not compromise righteousness.”

In short, Anderson will not compromise principles.

Liberty Candidates in Bloomberg Business Week! “Ron Paul’s Torchbearers”

Liberty Candidates have made it into the big time!  Elizabeth Dworkin of Bloomberg/Businessweek has written a story including many of our liberty candidates like Karen Kwaitkowski, Tisha Casida, Calen Fretts and more!  Gigi Bowman met up with the author and some of our Liberty Candidates during Philly Phreedom, the Ron Paul Rally on April 22.  In the middle of a storm Elizabeth Dworkin might have found more Liberty than she’d imagined 4,500 people with umbrella’s in the rain to hear the Presidential Candidate who has brought so much inspiration to all the liberty Candidates 🙂

Ron Paul’s Torchbearers

 

 

By  on April 26, 2012

Karen Kwiatkowski, a Republican candidate for Congress in Virginia, rarely passes up an opportunity to scold Washington politicians about runaway defense spending, which she says is an egregious waste of taxpayer dollars that does little to make Americans safer. Halfway across the country, Tisha Casida, a Colorado Independent, says she’ll push to end the drug war and legalize marijuana if she’s elected to the House. In Florida, Calen Fretts, a Libertarian seeking to unseat a veteran Republican congressman, promises that if he’s elected he’ll begin working to abolish the U.S. Federal Reserve. “As people increase the size and scope of government,” Fretts says, “there’s got to be a few of us to resist it.”

These candidates have two things in common: All are long shots seeking office for the first time. And all were inspired to run by the same man—Ron Paul.

After 12 terms in the House, Paul, who is 76, says he’ll retire at year’s end. Though he gamely insists he can still defeat Mitt Romney and capture the Republican nomination, his presidential runs have always been about forcing other candidates, and the public, to pay attention to his libertarian arguments for eliminating most taxes, closing federal agencies, bringing U.S. troops home from overseas, legalizing drugs, outlawing official secrecy, dismantling the Fed, returning to the gold standard, and generally getting the government to get out of the way.

If forcing his don’t-tread-on-me, minimalist philosophy into the mainstream is the benchmark, Paul can claim victory and return to Texas a happy man. The professional political class may ridicule him as an eccentric kook leading a cantankerous army of potheads who invade chat rooms with ALLCAPS rants about government overreach. (And no doubt there’s something to that—the most worshipful Paul evangelists can be hard to stomach.) But listening to his rivals in the GOP debates demand that the Fed be audited and the Departments of Energy and Education be shuttered, it’s clear that many of Paul’s positions, once considered extreme, are now routine Republican talking points—and that his influence over conservative politics greatly outweighs his low poll rankings and back-of-the-pack primary returns. “I believe our time has come,” says Paul, who quickly tempers this uncharacteristic display of optimism. “It’s still going to be a knock-down dragged-out fight.”

Photo enforcement is about revenue. One cannot deny the amount of cash they generate. Many cities generate thousands and sometimes millions from these machines; the party that always wins… is the camera vendor.

Many say it’s always been about the revenue, rather than the safety. All that is needed is to increase the length of yellow lights by one second, and you’ll have fewer people running red lights and significantly fewer accidents. But… if passive easy revenue is your goal, then you shorten the yellow light time, a few cities have been caught doing just that.

Cedar Rapids has ignored the safety benefit of increasing the yellow light time and decided to install red-light cameras and collect the profits instead.

No points are assessed to a driver’s license when caught by a camera, many do not know they can contest the fine. It is also impossible to face your accuser (the camera) in court. The cameras punish the car’s owner, not the driver. When a spouse or child borrows your car and is caught by the camera, you pay the fine not them. This is unconstitutional but no one seems to care to follow the law on this.

A police officer’s presence would prevent speeding as opposed to speed cameras catching speeders after the fact. Anyone who drives on I-380 knows that seeing a police car with lights on will get everyone to immediately slow down.

Are the speed cameras about perks for politicians? In one state, speed camera lobbyists treated some politicians to dine at an expensive restaurant where the check was nearly $4,000. A few speed camera companies and insurance companies combined, gave almost $1,000,000 in campaign contributions to politicians in Maryland, over the years to implement speed cameras. Cameras have been called a wise and courageous move for crooked politicians. Have any in Iowa received something similar?

Companies that operate red light and speed cameras are always looking for receptive city council members. Joe public very rarely has the opportunity to review the sales pitch these companies make behind closed doors, as it is many times unlike to the message they present to the general public.

Cameras are just a beginning of a complete loss of freedom in America.

If you don’t like these cameras you should check out a gps camera detector like this.

Those who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

– Benjamin Franklin

Liberty Candidate Glen Bradley Endorsed by Ron Paul!

  • Our R3VOLUTION is growing by leaps and bounds!

    Today, I’d like to endorse – and urge you to vote for – Representative Glen Bradley for North Carolina State Senate District 18 in the May 8 Republican Primary.

    Like you, Glen firmly believes in our founding principles of individual liberty, free markets, sound money, and constitutional government.

    A Marine Corps veteran, he’s never once wavered in his convictions during his time in the State House – even when it meant standing against his own Party.

    When Washington bureaucrats attempted to take over our entire food industry, Representative Bradley fought against them by introducing the Farmer’s Freedom Protection Act.

    On every single issue – from guns to taxes to unnecessary regulations on small businesses to REAL ID – Representative Bradley has courageously fought Washington’s attempts to force federal rules and regulations on the good folks in North Carolina.

    In fact, because of his efforts, he’s considered one of the leading advocates for using the Tenth Amendment to block federal regulations.

    He’s also considered one of the leading advocates for sound money in the country, introducing legislation in North Carolina to allow silver and gold to once again be legal tender and speaking out on this issue on national TV.

    If you agree that we need more principled men and women like Representative Bradley in office, then I hope you’ll agree to vote for Glen – and make a generous donation to his State Senate campaign if you can.

    Glen doesn’t have – nor want – the special interest lobby funding his campaign.

    He’s not a career politician. In fact, Glen was never involved in politics at all before he was inspired by my 2008 presidential run.

    Instead, Glen is a true Patriot who is fed up with the corruption in government – and wants to do something about it.

    And since the special interest lobby knows he’s running to put the brakes on their Big Government gravy train, you can be sure they’re going all out to defeat him during the upcoming May 8 Republican Primary.

    That’s why Glenn is counting on good folks like you – who truly value individual liberty and freedom – to help him lead the fight against Big Government in the North Carolina State Senate.

    You can do that by voting for Glen in the May 8 Republican Primary – and by contributing to his campaign.

    Like Glen, I know what it’s like to take on the entire political establishment.

    I’ve been doing it for more than 30 years now.

    I’m confident that – with the help and support of folks like you – Glen has a great chance of becoming the next State Senator in District 18.

    So please, help Glen fight the political establishment by voting for him for the State Senate on May 8 and by making a generous donation to his campaign.

    You won’t be disappointed you did!

    For Liberty,

    Ron Paul

    P.S. I’m proud to endorse Representative Glen Bradley’s campaign for State Senate, and I hope you’ll vote for him in the Tuesday, May 8 Republican primary and make a generous contribution to his campaign.

    Glen firmly believes in our founding principles of individual liberty, free markets, sound money, and constitutional government.

    Please help Glen Bradley fight for liberty in the State Senate by voting for him and by donating to his State Senate campaign.

Trustee and Liberty Candidate Doug Marks wants Concealed Carry in his Town

Carpentersville trustee wants conceal carry in town

Could conceal carry become the law of the land in Carpentersville?

At least one trustee hopes so.

Although carrying concealed weapons is illegal in Illinois, village Trustee Doug Marks has found what he believes is an exception to the law and says it’s legal to carry weapons, provided a certified owner has unloaded the firearm and placed it inside a fanny pack.

Village President Ed Ritter says Carpentersville has worked hard to clean up its image and that Marks’ proposal could undermine those efforts. Village Attorney James Rhodes is researching whether Marks’ proposal is legal.

Marks got the information from Conceal Carry, a group advocating for such. Marks doesn’t belong to the group but keeps track of what it’s doing.

In a letter from Conceal Carry, the group cites a 1997 appellate court decision from Champaign County in advising police to allow people to carry an unloaded firearm, ammunition magazines and a valid FOID card in a fanny pack.

Liberty-Candidates.org, A Sought After Stamp of Approval in the 2012 Election

Apparently the media is starting to take notice that being listed as a Liberty Candidate is an important stamp of approval in the 2012 election.   Being listed as a Liberty Candidate, voters know what they’re getting when they check them off on the ballot!

Many 2012 Candidates Seeking a Particular Website’s Stamp of Approval

This year there seems to be an added step to the process of running for political office. That step is seeking the stamp of approval from Liberty-Candidates.org.

What started off as a small mom & pops website run by Gigi Bowman & Sally O’Boyle in 2009, has now blossomed into election HQ for those seeking support from the politically educated. Liberty-Candidates.org prides itself on not asking which political party you belong to when applying, but rather what your political beliefs are. Supporters of the website tend to be very knowledgeable of the U.S. Constitution, monetary system, & foreign policy.

In local politics the 2012 political season has just started but Liberty-Candidates has already been flooded with interested candidates. Over 30 candidates have gone through the Liberty-Candidates.org litmus test.

Many Liberty Candidates Named as Possible Successors to Ron Paul’s Seat

The legacy of Ron Paul: Who will fill his House seat?

Two time Liberty Candidates, Floyd Bane and William Yarbrough, Past Liberty Candidate, John Dennis and first time Liberty Candidates Karen Kwaitkowski and George Harper named as possible successors to Ron Paul’s legendary seat in the House.  Needless to say we know we’re doing something right at Liberty Candidates 🙂

RICHMOND, February 29, 2012 – Whether Ron Paul wins the White House in November or not, one thing is for certain; he is not coming back to the House of Representatives. This leaves many wondering who will take up the mantle for liberty after the good doctor has retired.

The obvious choice is Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, Ron Paul’s son. Michigan congressman Justin Amash is probably the closest to Dr. Paul in the House. There are, however, others who have been inspired by Dr. Paul’s example and have a good chance at making a splash in congressional elections this fall.

Nullify the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

Nullify the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)

By Tisha Casida

Both Political Parties in Washington, D.C. are completely out of touch with the people.  The Republicans and the Democrats are discussing and passing legislation that should never have even be a talking point on the floor of the Congress, let alone law.  They took an oath of office to uphold the Constitution and look at what they have done!  Are they trying to “protect us” or is something more sinister going on?  Conspiracy is certainly on the minds of Americans these days as both parties support and pass unconstitutional and yes, treasonous legislation against the American people.  What is happening?

WE MUST stop them!   I am talking about the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  Anyone who reads this assault on us is asking “WHY do we need this type of law”?  How is it that they think we need this?  What are they not telling us?  We all like to call our elected officials ‘stupid’ at times but I am certain they are not stupid enough to not have a plan and understand what is going on here.  Why does this have so little opposition from either party?  Why is it not talked about in our “main-stream” news media?

Enough!  Every state, county, and city must draft legislation to nullify this unconstitutional declaration of war against Americans.  They can’t even call it a war against terror anymore because they just declared “us” the American people terrorists, extremists, committing “belligerent acts”.  They clearly have drawn the line, it is our elected officials against the American people.  How is this possible?  Why would they do this?  Check out the actual verbiage (Title X, Subtitle D, Sections 1021 and 1022 – Page 81 of 371) and you decide.  It is now WAR – they provoked and declared it.

Our founding document The Constitution of the United States of America means nothing to them anymore or they would not have drafted or passed this treasonous act.  They have failed to uphold their oath of office.  So do we follow them or follow the Constitution?  The Constitution warns against what they have done to us and clearly states what is necessary for “we the people” to protect ourselves from the disastrous effects of power freaks, cowards, and dictators.  Read the bill and decide for yourself.

We can combat all of this in a non-violent way.  But you must get off the couch and put down the TV remote.  Americans have become complacent and think it’s all gonna be okay.  Time to walk the walk and stop screaming at the television which goes on deaf ears and does nothing to empower yourself.  This is exactly why I am running for Congress – to protect our liberty and freedom from an oppressive government.  Every state has the opportunity to fight back and I am fighting for Coloradans.  This is not a “sky is falling message”, this is real and in force since New Years Eve 2012.  You have already lost your liberty and freedom, it is just not enforced yet.  Elect me to restore your liberty and freedom and stop this egregious act against YOU and all of us.  I stand for you and all of Colorado, I will not stand down.  I got off the couch, please join me. http://www.casida2012.com/ndaa/nullify-the-national-defense-authorization-act-ndaa/

Please support our efforts to educate America about the NDAA and the Enemy Expatriation Act, please consider a donation to our campaign.  Every bit helps!
