Wise Advice on Running for Office and Donating to Candidates

Salaries are not huge in Florida. As a substitute teacher I made $11.88 per hour which is actually not bad considering what full time teachers make in this state for all their hard work and the responsibility that goes with it…
So I got to thinking about candidates who are running for office. No, not the entrenched candidates –the ones who have been in there 10, 15, 20, 30 years…but the citizens that feel compelled to step up to run for office because they know there is something wrong, very wrong….and they want to help. The ones with passion and who are doing it for all the right reasons…I mean, no one put them up to it or made a deal with big money behind it to support them if they played along or followed the “agenda”…..
I’m talking about hard working citizens who love America and want to make sure the country doesn’t continue to be run by thugs and fascist and corporations…
My point is….
Most of the entrenched or put-upon candidates seem to get a treasure trove of big money from somewhere….usually it’s through some corporate sponsor or a PAC which has corporate money behind it. These people get thousands upon thousands or even millions of dollars in their coffers…..and for what? TV commercials to fool us? Ads in Newspapers we don’t read? Facebook ads that get lost in the mire? Oh wait…..what about those palm cards that come in the mail during election time…you know, the one’s that get thrown in the garbage and never read?
They spend money to get more and more big donors. They use it for travel expenses and hotel rooms and events to praise those that gave them the big money…. Funny though, no one pays the citizens that go door to door or do sign waves or give up their time to watch polling stations. It’s all a crazy game and it makes absolutely no sense.
Then once in awhile you get someone who wants to run for office because they give a damn and the people who donate to them make about $10, $12 or $15 an hour and if they are to give a $20 donation it’s 2 hours of labor before taxes. This is a “real” donation. One from the heart given by someone who probably could use that $20 to feed their family but they want to see America be Great Again ūüôā
You can go to a place like OpenSecrets. Org and see who donated what to whom. ¬† It’s a fascinating place. It gives the true story of who your legislator is working for….most times it’s not the people –not the citizens, but rather some corporation that wants favors for their “payment”. Someone like Big Pharma or Big Agriculture….
So to the candidates out there who are stepping up to run for office because they give a damn –relish in those $5 and $10 and $20 donations and appreciate that someone may have worked a few hours on your behalf.
And to the citizens who are giving donations, give wisely because you don’t want to give your hard earned money to some guy who lies to you and says they’ll do things like support your beliefs in the constitution and then as soon as they get elected they turn the other cheek and disregard everything they stood for (and sponsor the Pelosi gun law). Stop giving your hard earned money to these thieves in the night who don’t appreciate that you gave them an hour of hard labor….
And for goodness sake when you judge or choose a candidate to vote for, look at the amount of small donations they get by hard working citizens rather than the sum total –thinking that the more money a candidate makes the better they must be is archaic thinking!
I used to run ‘Liberty Candidates’ . com for 5 years (I closed it down in 2014 and decided to run for office myself.) I did it because I cared about these citizen candidates who I watched run for office because they gave a damn and I wanted to help to promote them and get them donations. In the end so few of them won. Why? Because people didn’t vote for them –sadly, people voted for the entrenched most of the time….
It’s our job to see who is running for office and to make a wise decision. It’s our job to get out there and vote and not to make the same mistakes over and over again. It’s our job!
This election season I’m giving my hard earned hours of work to Rich Williams who is running for St. Lucie County Sheriff against a man who has had the job for 19 years. I know that Rich was endorsed by good people like CSPOA and Sheriff Mack and The Republican Liberty Caucus and that the Constitution is of the utmost importance to him. He’s the man who I choose to give my hard earned money and time to. I also know that he appreciates me for it.
Find your citizen candidate and help support them in your locality or your state or your country….. WE are the change. WE can make the change and WE can be the change. Stop voting in the people who want to rule over you and instead vote in those who want to stand beside you.
If you would like to support Rich Williams check out his facebook page (richwilliamsslcsheriff/) for information on where you can talk to him, ask questions and donate your hard earned money. You don’t even have to live in his district to do that….you can support any citizen in this country that you so desire to…. but make sure that this person shares your values and that they appreciate your hours of work in order to support them.
Sincerely,
Gigi Bowman

I’m very disappointed in my fellow Conservatives & Republicans

Day after day on social networking I’ve come to notice a trend.¬† Group-think is the new Conservative view –the same view that the Conservatives condemn the Liberals for.

In this country we have primaries.¬† Sometimes our President endorses a candidate and sometimes he does not. Not all the candidates that have been endorsed by President Trump -whom I happen to LOVE with a capitol L- have been the best candidates and they have not all been the winners.¬† We do have people in this country who think for themselves –thank God.

In Florida we have a race for Governor with a dozen or so candidates.¬† Donald Trump endorsed Ron DeSantis and someone I admire very much, Ron Paul, endorsed Bob White.¬† My choice is Bob White. I like where he stands on the issues including jobs, education and corporatism in the Florida legislature.¬† These issues are very important to ME and I agree with him. So I took it upon myself to help his campaign and to try to awaken other people to the fact that he’s a pretty damned good candidate.¬† It’s a free country, we have a 1st Amendment and I am not an advocate for Group-think.¬† I thought my fellow Conservatives and Republicans were against this sort of thing as well since it’s what I see them faulting liberals with day after day on Facebook & Twitter –but it’s funny how it’s AOK when they do it or don’t agree with you.¬† In most places that’s called hypocrisy.¬† And I really hope that we are not resorting to that sort of thing.

Today I’ve been called stupid by a fellow Republican Conservative and Biker.¬† Yesterday I was verbally gang-hammered by Bikers for Trump. ALL BECAUSE I chose to think for myself and look at the candidates and make a decision of whom I agreed with the most and took it upon myself to help their campaign.

I could go on and on but I’m going to stop here.¬† If we don’t want to turn into the very people we protest against, why do we resort to acting like them when we don’t agree?¬† Name calling?¬† Vicious verbal attacks?¬† What’s next?

Lets try to be bigger than that.  We have primaries for a reason.  You can make your decisions during primary time and when the nominee is voted upon then we basically come together and work as one for the side we have chosen that is supposed to represent our values.

I’m so tired of being disappointed in my fellow American citizens. In every direction I look we’re at each other’s throats. Even those on the same side.

If, during primary time, you don’t like a candidate –then just ignore them…but to jump on the hate bandwagon and act the same towards those on your side as you act towards those who are diametrically opposite of your very core beliefs is really disheartening.

I’m a Conservative, A Republican with a side of libertarian. I love my President and my husband and I ride an Indian Motorcycle…..so I think I fit into the groups “Bikers for Trump” or “Trump Voters who Ride Motorcycles” and unless the name of the group is changed to Group-Think for Trump or Zombies With One Brain for Trump then there is no reason to attack me.

That is all.

And yes, this is me.¬† I’m a Real Woman and I am voting for Bob White.¬† This doesn’t mean that if you don’t vote for Bob White you’re not a real woman it just means that I’m a woman and I’m real.

How to Host A Political Meet & Greet and Why You Should

 

Don’t you think in this political climate that you should take the time to meet your local, state & federal candidates?¬† That you should learn all you can about them since they will most likely be calling the shots on how much money is coming out of your paycheck, how clean your local environment is and what laws might be infringing on your liberties without your consent?

Well, I’m here to tell you that you can simply hold a political meet&greet at your home inviting your friends, family and neighbors and since Summer is almost here….what better time than right before the 2018 Primaries and Election?

Step by Step Instructions:

#1 Buy a Cocktail Shaker – That’s right….it’s called a cocktail party and all you need is a bottle of vodka, some ice, a fruity juice or if your taste run more to the exotic side try a bottle of Kahlua.

Bailey’s Martini

Tito’s Cocktails

or if you think you’ll get a big crowd than mix up a large batch of Sangria! You can go White and add some Red & blue berries to add a festive political touch ūüôā Try this recipe from Recipe Girl

#2 Make Some Munchies:¬† Now that you’ve figured out the beverages how about some finger sandwiches or perhaps a nice dip? In staying with our political theme there are lots of ideas right here, and it’s all healthy too!

#3 Create Invitations:¬† It doesn’t have to be difficult or time consuming.¬† You can simply run to the store and buy a pack of invites or you can get creative and print a batch on your computer. But I suggest you make the “put in the mailbox” kind and not the ones generated on a computer and emailed because it’s not personal, it’s easy for people to ignore and it might get lost in spam or just a mass email delete.

Here is a great site on Lucid Press that shows you how to create your own invitations or you can simply take a walk over to your local Michael’s where they have an isle filled with every sort of stationary imaginable including blank cards, stickers and envelopes and you can print up some striking invitation that is sure to peek the interest of your neighbors or you can find stationary and just print a simple invite which can be folded and placed in your friendly neighborhood mailboxes.

#4 Call Gigi and Make arrangements to have a Meet & Greet with Bob White, Gubernatorial Candidate for Florida! Just drop me an email @ bowmancomputers@aol.com and let me know dates and times of availability and we’ll get Bob right to your door!

It’s important that you know who you’re voting for and if you want to meet the best man for the job than lets get this party started!

 

 

 

 

 

Ron Paul Endorses Bob White for Governor of Florida and so do I!

I know I have good taste. I met Bob at a local Republican Meet & Greet and knew in my gut that he was the kind of man Florida needed.¬† A lot of people are at work behind the scenes with very deep pockets trying to turn Florida blue….from the anti-2nd Amendment democrats to those who would like nothing better than to turn Florida into the next Welfare state and take away all the wonderful freedoms it has to offer both economically and constitutionally –which is why I left the state of New York after running for NY State Senate when I realized how doomed I was if I continued to live there with it’s high taxes and abundant nanny laws.

So lo-and-behold a short time later guess who endorses Bob White?¬† None other than Ron Paul!¬† Ron Paul red-pilled me back in 2007. After finding out about this stalwart Congressman from Texas who was running for President I got on the Liberty train and started the Long Island Ron Paul meet-up and from there I started the organization Liberty Candidates where I would help to promote Candidates running for office on the platform of Liberty which was my way of helping to bring more like Ron Paul into the fold through the election process.¬† It was sort of a ‘draining of the swamp’ back in 2010 – 2014 through supporting candidates who were adept at following the Constitution.

Well, this just proves to me that my instincts are good.¬† Before Ron Paul’s endorsement I jumped on board the Bob White Campaign trail as a a ground organizer for Saint Lucie, Martin, Indian River, Volusia and Brevard Counties.¬† We’re looking for leaders to step up and take action for this grass-roots campaign so if you’re looking to get involved with getting a Liberty Lover and Constitutionalist elected as Governor of the great state of Florida and to #KeepFloridaGreat then send me a note and we’ll get you started with a Tee-Shirt, business cards and bumper stickers.

We’re also looking for people to host meet-and-greets for their local friends, family & neighbors so if you are interested in doing so just message me with possible dates and we’ll work it out.

This is how you do it.  I worked for a campaign that managed to get a blimp in the air!  We can do this.  #WhoIsBobWhite?

False Flags, Fake News and the Death of the 1st Amendment

fake-news
In the last week we had a “shooter” at a pizza place being investigated by the people on social media –and we investigate because we see the dots and we connect them….why? Because we don’t see the media or journalist doing this or even talking about it. We haven’t even seen journalist go through Wikileaks or discuss them…. the only Wikileaks investigations have been by the people for the people. There have been¬†some serious allegations and the amount of circumstantial evidence is overwhelming so by putting our heads together we take matters into our own hands and we connect dots. ¬†This is nothing new…we’ve had to do this for many incidents that have happened in the USA including the shootings of Kennedy, his brother and Martin Luther King. We do this with how wars are started when we find out that we were lied to about weapons of mass destruction. We do this when 3 buildings come down and they only talk about 2 and we are told that it was done by 19 guys with box cutters and are told to shut up, sit still, be quiet. ¬†But this is the United States of America and we are the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave! ¬†So I have every right as a citizen to talk to people and to put my head together with my friends to figure things out….. ¬†But now they want to stop that and our 1st Amendment is hanging by a thread because they have now labeled what we do, say and write –they have labeled any opinion but theirs “FAKE NEWS”
In the last day we have had another incident of a woman arrested for harassing a “Sandy Hook” parent. ¬†They have labeled her the “Sandy Hook Denier”¬†. ¬† What are we to believe here? ¬†Is this a big coincidence that in one week we have people being arrested for two incidents that The People of the United States of America have spent time discussing because they have been used to infringe on our Constitution? Because of what happened at Sandy Hook, which happened in the state right next to mine when I lived in New York, I ran for office. Why? Because days¬†after¬†Sandy Hook took place they rushed through an infringement on the 2nd Amendment called the NY Safe Act. So Sandy Hook truly affected us all in that state…..which is why there were so many citizen investigations. No one in the media seemed to be answering the questions and the more we watched the mainstream news, the less things seemed real. It was truly macabre what was happening.
A third incident now involves Megyn Kelly, a celebrinewswoman who says she’s received death threats¬†and are saying a member of¬†Trump’s transition team is partially responsible because through social media¬†he sent a tweet which read¬†“Megyn Kelly made a total fool out of herself tonight ‚Äď attacking @realDonald Trump. Watch what happens to her after this election is over.”
So add this to the two shootings and suddenly there is a watchful eye all over social media and people are being shut down for trying to post YouTubes or information pertaining to anything related to what is suddenly deemed “fake news”. ¬†And who gets to decide what “fake news” is? ¬†Whatever the powers that be decide it is thereby infringing on the 1st Amendment. ¬† This is beyond yelling “fire” in a movie theater. I’m pretty sure we all understand the difference before actually inciting riots and discussing our opinions on activity that directly affects our rights as citizens.
Shootings, Death Threats……they’ll show us, they’ll make sure this sort of thing doesn’t happen anymore! ¬†They will take care of the problem!
Problem, Reaction, Solution….that’s how it works folks. ¬†They call this sort of thing a False Flag and you can look them up throughout history. ¬†They are a tool used to guide situations and they apparently work. ¬†They are guiding our Constitution right out of existence.

false-flag-472x600

SO we must stay vigilant. ¬†When they shut us down we start up again somewhere else. Never forget that we are Americans and we came here so that the government wouldn’t push us around. ¬†Today they are doing the pushing by using the media, corporations and the people we vote into office.

No no no…..we must not give in. ¬†We have one another and we don’t need anything but the ability to put our heads together to figure out ways to fight back. ¬†This doesn’t have to include anything more than continuing to fight back with pen in hand.

Remember the White Rose Society…….¬†and let that be our inspiration.

I will leave you with this video of Alex Jones from a few weeks ago….He doesn’t have the answers and he’s quite honest about it. He has been harassed of late as being the leader of the “fake news”. ¬†Support your “fake news” friends and citizen journalist.
