Thread: UPDATED List of Liberty Candidates and Upcoming Elections

  1. #1

    Default UPDATED List of Liberty Candidates and Upcoming Elections

    Every now and then I try to put out a list of liberty candidates that I suggest Paul supporters research and if they fit your personal criteria of "liberty candidate" then please vote for them.

    The rEVOLution didn't stop in '08 and will continue past '12, but the only way to do that is to keep electing pro-liberty people to office. It's not just about the RNC. It's about changing the playing field.

    Below are my suggestions. They are gathered from different sources and some may not fit everyone's particular definition of "Liberty Candidate" so please do your own research and follow your conscience. If there is anyone I should add to the list, please leave a comment (name, district and when to vote for them would help). Re-tweet, thumbs up and share this anyway you can. This is an ongoing project, and I try to keep this up-to-date, but please point out errors if you spot any.

    If we don't make an effort then we are no better than the rest of the sheeple.

    Ryan Harring for state rep in Tennessee.

    Gary Glenn has dropped out, and he and Rand have endorsed Clark Durant.

    Rohrabacher is a U.S. rep.

    Also, I don't think any Paul supporters are backing Akin.

    Great work! It's awesome seeing so many candidates that are at least friendly to our cause.

    As a Missourian I can assure you that there is no way in hell I'd vote for Akin. Fingers crossed for John Brunner.

    Maybe tell us why? I think threads like these should dissect candidate's records for vetting if you're motivated enough to post that.

    I tend to agree. Trust me, it's hard enough to gather all this information. It would be nice to have a bit more help to get people informed.

    NEBRASKA FOR RON PAUL

  9. #8

    Toady is our primary.

    Great list - I'd like to see it go all the way down to dog catcher level. I never know which circuit court clerk to pick.

    Possibly one more for Georgia:

    Travis Bowden (R) running for State Senate district 9.

    I don't know much about him, but he is Chairman of the RLC in GA, and is going against the incumbent, Don Balfour who is shady as hell.

    Also, if Chip Rogers is your state Senator vote for him. Not perfect, but challenger Brandon Beach is a Chamber of Commerce President and GA DOT board member and a real statist. Supports T-SPLOST(largest tax increase in GA history), and opposes school vouchers, a big issue here.

    Yup and take out Boman for Senate. He runs as the LP Senate candidate in every election and there's no need for him to siphon votes away from Durant in the general. We need Stabme out bad, period.

    I don't know. Is Durant pro-liberty? Is he a candidate for office? It seems to me that if someone is a candidate for office and pro-liberty, unless there are extraordinary circumstances, he or she should be on the list.

    Rand endorsed Durant and I've seen him speak twice, he's legit. The important thing is that we need to bump the dem senator and replace her with a guy like Durant. Which is why Boman needs to drop out on this one. This is the equivalent if the KYLP ran a candidate against Rand last time, yet we're more of a swing state so not having a third party challenger helps even more.

    I think Akin is okay as a Congressman but would scare me as a Senator. He picks and chooses his liberty agenda based on his own brand of statism.

    This is the best representation, Akin's response on Ron Paul and Barney Frank's marijuana re-legalization:

    Dear MINION:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding efforts to achieve legalization of marijuana.

    I oppose the legalization of marijuana for three reasons. First, legalization sends a harmful moral message that tends to legitimize drug abuse. The government should not undermine parents' efforts to raise morally discerning children by sending a strong message to teenagers about the acceptability of mind-altering substances.

    Second, many people who argue for the legalization of marijuana greatly understate the physiological effects of this drug. The intoxicant in marijuana, THC, appears to have mild effects because it is fat-soluble and slow-acting. However, THC stored in fatty tissue continues to affect the brain for a long time after the "high" wears off. This is why regular pot smokers feel and appear continuously distracted and unfocused. THC can remain in the fat of a regular smoker for months after he quits. This intoxicant can cause serious and lasting harm to the brain, the hormones, the lungs, and the reproductive organs of a smoker.

    Third, and most importantly, I oppose the legalization of marijuana because it is a gateway drug. While not all pot smokers go on to use harder drugs, virtually everyone who abuses cocaine or heroine begins by smoking marijuana. In the Netherlands, the liberalization of drug laws has resulted in the proliferation of harder drugs, prostitution, and violent crime as users seek greater highs and new ways to feed their habit.

    Likewise, I am not sympathetic with attempts to legalize marijuana for medical use. THC is already available in pill form with a doctor's prescription. Thus, there is no legitimate medical need for raw marijuana. I see these initiatives as ill-advised attempts to legitimize this harmful drug.

    It is a privilege to represent you and I hope that you will not hesitate to contact me regarding any matter where I might be of assistance. Please visit my website, where you can find more information on current issues, share further thoughts with me via email and subscribe to my e-newsletter for updates on issues you care about.

    Sincerely,

    Todd Akin
    Member of Congress
    Remind Mr. Akin who took the following Oath of Office,

    I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
    that, as Dr. Paul points out in his book, The Revolution: A Manifesto, "the Constitution does not authorize the federal government simply to ban these substances..."

    I'm on the fence about Durant. He's in bed with Saul Anuzis, and I don't trust him. At least I know what Stabenow is.

    Did Randi Shannon jump the shark into crazy category? It's disappointing how our people so often take a self-induced nosedive into the obscure and irrelevancy.

    Unfortunately, yes. I will say she is now in a group of great liberty minded individuals. But on a scale of one to batshit... well, you guessed it.
