    I would be in Peterson's camp because he's a pretty pure Libertarian even if he isn't a great Republican candidate. He's a fountain of talking points.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    ...although i could be wrong...please paste his best/most important thinking as to 'our' stinking monetary order if you think he's so great...

    ...now this is what i want to hear from politicians:

    “I have never yet had anyone who could, through the use of logic and reason, justify the Federal Government borrowing the use of its own money... I believe the time will come when people will demand that this be changed. I believe the time will come in this country when they will actually blame you and me and everyone else connected with the Congress for sitting idly by and permitting such an idiotic system to continue.” (attributed to Congressman Wright Patman)

    "Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nations laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognised as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile." (attributed to William Lyon Mackenzie King)

    Awesome. Brunner is the best in MO IMO.


    Petersen is really the definition of an attention whore, hate to say it. Brunner has put millions of $ where his mouth is and seems sincere. I hope Brunner raises funds instead of just self funding. Self funding is admirable but a stupid strategy when you can hire a good fundraiser. That's one thing I've learned from politics that a lot in the movement don't get yet. Run of the mill conservative donors are open to giving to liberty candidates.

    So Peterson is on the neoconservative foreign policy train?

    The thing is that I worry sometimes that libertarians when they say, when they make these sorts of jokes about foreign policy, “oh, they hated us for our freedoms, ha, ha” it betrays a lack of full understanding of the true nature of what we are against. Now, just because I am a non-interventionist libertarian, it doesn’t mean that I don’t believe that there are threats around the world. And it also means that I think that we should acknowledge those threats, Russia being one of those primary threats.

    His Russia fear mongering didn't age well lololol. I think Austin made the point, and it's not entirely a bad one that we should appeal to the base and that's something he thought Ron failed at. Petersen's problem now is Russia fear mongering is now a Democrat thing and plays 10 times worse in the GOP than non-interventionism does. In other words.... RP 1, AP 0

    I just saw Curtman is running. Great guy. WTH is it with these races where every liberty/semi liberty dude in the state and all their grandmother run against each other and the establishment? I'm tired of campaigns, its time to win some dang seats! I know Brunner can run a statewide campaign don't know if Curtman has enough connections to raise the money or not. Hope somebody good wins.

    Yea, I have been following Curtman for a while. It looks like thee VPOTUS is pushing for some RINO AG to run, so hopefully the liberty votes don't propel the establishment guy to a win here.

    At this point, I'm leaning towards Gunny's recommendation of Paul Curtman, at least in the Primary.

    Default Repub candidate Austin Petersen blocked from Facebook over AR-15 raffle

    Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty has raffled off AR-15s in the past.
    And I see that Petersen featured a photo of himself with Ron Paul in a tweet. https://twitter.com/AP4Liberty/statu...5-give-away%2F

    from breitbart:
    GOP Senate Candidate ‘Blocked’ from Facebook After Posting AR-15 Giveaway
    by AWR HAWKINS29 Sep 2017

    Republican U.S. Senate candidate Austin Petersen says he was “blocked” from using Facebook after he posted a video announcing an AR-15 giveaway.
    He says he learned of the block via a notification informing him he had “posted something that violates Facebook’s policies.”

    On September 28 Petersen published an open letter to Mark Zuckerberg, which said in part:

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-governm...r-15-give-away
    Peterson's letter to Mark Zuckerberg:
    https://www.austinpetersen.com/open_...austinpetersen

    Dear Mr. Zuckerberg,

    My name is Austin Petersen, and I am a Republican running to represent the people of Missouri in the United States Senate. I am also a longtime Facebook user and an avid believer in Facebook’s mission: to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. First, let me say that I fully respect the right of Facebook as a company to do as it pleases, and set terms of service that users must abide by. As a US senator, I would never call for legislation to interfere with your ability to run your company, or set guidelines on user’s behavior.

    In my campaign for the United States Senate, I have made Facebook a centerpiece of my outreach efforts. I have used both my Personal Profile and my Official Page to connect with friends, family, and supporters, and to share and express our views about the future of the country.

    That’s why, on September 22, I was so shocked to receive a notification from Facebook informing me that I had been “blocked” from using Facebook for thirty days because I “recently posted something that violates Facebook’s policies.” Believing this to be a mistake, my campaign reached out to Facebook for more information. Today — six days later — I still have not received an explanation, and the block remains in effect.

    At the same time the block was affected, a Facebook Live video I had posted to my Official Page promoting my campaign’s AR-15 giveaway was removed. A few days later, a Status Update posted to my Profile referencing the same giveaway was also removed. I’m confident that such giveaways are consistent with Facebook’s policies — several posts promoting the giveaway, including paid “Dark Posts,” remain visible on our page — so it’s unclear to me why such content would warrant an immediate takedown and thirty-day ban.

    It’s difficult to ignore that this action comes during a period of heightened tension regarding Facebook’s role in our elections, and its perceived bias against conservative voices. Moreover, the fact that your Chief Operating Officer — Sheryl Sandberg — has “leaned into” my election by donating the maximum allowable amount to my opponent does not inspire confidence in Facebook’s neutrality.

    I’ve been following with interest your recent statements defending Facebook as an unbiased platform “for all ideas.” I hope that’s really true. However, blocking a candidate for the United States Senate for exercising support of the Second Amendment — especially when that candidate is challenging an incumbent favored by members of your board — is cause for concern and worthy of a larger conversation and a public explanation. I hope that you, or Ms. Sandberg, are able to offer one that assuages my concerns and the concerns of the larger conservative community.

    As I said, I am a longtime Facebook user and a believer in your company’s mission. Facebook’s success is a testament to the American ideal of free enterprise, and you should be proud of the business you’ve built. But if Facebook cannot truly be an unbiased, open platform that respects people with conservative views of the Constitution, that raises serious questions that must be addressed.

    Thank you for taking time to hear my concerns. I look forward to having the opportunity to speak with you further.

    Sincerely,

    Austin Petersen
    Republican for U.S. Senate, Missouri

    P.S. — If you’re reading this letter and share my concerns about bias and censorship at Facebook, please sign and share our petition. Let’s urge Facebook to follow through on their promise to maintain a platform open to all ideas.

    The major social media companies have revealed themselves to be leftist propaganda outlets. Perhaps it's time for right-oriented competition.

    I'll back him purely due to an anti-establishment premise, assuming he's the most viable anti-establishment guy in the race.

    I would say that he is just as much of an anti-establishment candidate as the all-time champion of smaller government and non-nation-building: George W. Bush.
