    As most of you know, I'm running for state representative in Kansas' 113th district. I'm running against a liberal Republican in the primary who is well funded. I need to raise a decent amount of money to run a competitive race, get radio ads up, and have a chance to win. I've received a very good response as I've campaigned all across the district. It's all a matter of getting my message out. If I can get my message out, I'll win the race. So far I've raised about $7,000 total in my campaign. My goal is to raise $10,000. That's not a huge amount, but I think it would be enough for me to win the race when combined with pounding the pavement and knocking on doors like I've been doing. I believe that I'll be able to raise an additional $2,000 outside of this forum. Therefore, I'd like to ask if people here on this forum could help me raise the additional $1,000. I'm running on a pro liberty platform and would be the most pro liberty member of the Kansas house if I were elected. Just click here to read my positions on the issues.

    It doesn't matter to me whether donations are sent in a money bomb in the future or just sent whenever people feel like donating. Obviously no one has any obligation to donate, but I would just greatly appreciate any help people here would be willing to give me. If I could just get 40 people to donate $25 each, that would be $1,000. Checks are to be made out to "Fairchild For Freedom." The address is on my website. You can also donate through Paypal.

    My City wants to Ban Marijuana Dispensaries

    Thread Starter: EBounding

    As you probably know, Michigan's marijuana legalization proposal passed. Cities have to enact an ordinance if they want to ban marijuana establishments, which is what the City Council is planning to do tonight. 70% of my city voted for the state proposal and 60% voted for a city charter amendment to decriminalize it a few years ago. A few nearby cities have already banned them less than...
