Thread: Can someone list the congressional liberty candidates running in Republican primaries?

  1. #1

    Can someone list the congressional liberty candidates running in Republican primaries?

    I want to get involved, but I can't find a good list of candidates to follow and help. I would like to see more establishment Republicans unseated in primaries.
    Thanks!

    Several members here have announced their candidacies. But unfortunately, the trumpettes have drowned out those discussions. Electing Liberty Candidates is no longer an effort being made here, because everyone has been too distracted by arguing with the trumpettes, or run off by their constant spewing of racism. After Rand folded his run two years ago, instead of shifting the focus to electing Liberty Candidates, this place was allowed to be flushed down the toilet by the trumpettes. Since the election of Liberty Candidates is no longer a topic of discussion here, there isn't much news about this at all. Aside from the members here that are running, there are candidates in AZ and ME running for the US Senate (there have been several threads posted about it, if you look), and a candidate for Governor in OK that seems decent (former State Rep, running on a Constitutionalist and anti-abortion platform). Surely there are plenty more, but these days, I wouldn't count on getting the word about it here. I haven't looked at his website lately, but jurgs01 has done a good job at keeping track of who and where the Liberty Candidates are. Keith probably knows who is running in NH. Perhaps after the orange buffoon is out of office, this place will refocus on electing Liberty Candidates again.

    Incumbents or new candidates?

    New candidates we have discussed:

    For Senate we have Eric Brakey (Maine), Kelli Ward (Arizona), Austin Peterson (Missouri).

    Both. Incumbents along the lines of a Justin Amash being challenged, let's say, a Sarah Palin-type neocon.

    Who is this Danny Bedwell, US Senate MS? He doesn't show up anywhere in the Ballotpedia.

    I have a website. Not as active in it this year due to it being a very busy year at work, but I might get a break with work and put in some effort before the mid-term elections.
    http://www.candidates4liberty.com

    For Senate, I would look at Austin Peterson, Erik Brakey, Nick Freitas, Chris McDaniel

    For Congress, I would look at Owen Hill and Shane Hazel

    For Governor, I would look at Raul Labrador in Idaho.

    Is Raul giving up his House seat?

    And for Senate, IMHO, Kelli Ward is superior to Austin Peterson, who takes pics with Bill Kristol and has taken teocon-like positions in the past.

    Yes. Russ Fulcher and Michael Snyder are two libertyish candidates running to replace him.

    Kelli has an uphill battle, but Austin has zero chance regardless of how good he is or isn't. You can't win a senate election with a couple hundred grand, anybody outside of MO who spends energy on him is wasting it. We might not be able to know who will win but after a few cycles finding the losers is pretty easy.

    Kelli Ward actually seems pretty good. And I say that as one of the biggest anti-Trumpers here when she won't stop talking about how much she loves Trump. The actual ideology that she vocalizes is the kind that would make her the second best Senator almost immediately. While Trump has consistently demonstrated how he hates freedom and how it simply is not one of his values, Ward seems to "get it" at the core.

    And you can tell how good (and threatening) she is when Trump (and more recently Pence) are trying to prop up 86 year old authoritarian freak Arpaio in order to shut her out (the strategy is to have "RINO" McSally win by splitting the opposition vote between her and Arpaio). Ward is almost forced into showing how she's the truest Trump supporter in order to make a Trump endorsement of her opponent unfavorable enough politically to Trump to where he would look like a traitor.

    The primary and general election will both be difficult so she needs all of our help. But it is actually winnable.

    Trump was an enemy of Ron Paul, before he was an enemy of Rand Paul, before he was an enemy of the Freedom Caucus.
    One thing that he has remained consistent in is his hate of liberty and those who promote it.

    Not an example. That was written 4/26. I was asking on 4/3.

    With the election of Kelli Ward, Austin Peterson, Nick Freitas and Eric Brakey, we could have a significantly more liberty-friendly US Senate in 2019. Also, Shane Hazel is a fighter in GA 7 and would be a big upgrade to an establishment Republican. It is too bad Raul Labrador lost a very winnable primary for Governor in Idaho. The liberty movement doesn't seem to be able to rise up and back the candidates we need - and pretty soon we won't have any more.

    Good-looking, well-spoken and into Liberty. We got a gem here! Really hoping the forum gets behind her.

    "There was madness in any direction, at any hour. You could strike sparks anywhere. There was a fantastic universal sense that whatever we were doing was right, that we were winning.

    And that I think, was the handle. That sense of inevitable victory over the forces of Old and Evil. Not in any mean or military sense; we didn't need that. Our energy would simply prevail. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave." ~ HST

    Good job trying to run off the OP

    I haven't seen any Trump supporters derail any candidates. What I do see is people whining who have TDS complaining so much that people get annoyed and go away.

    Glen Bradley had a few spats with Trump supporters, but most of them ended up supporting his candidacy once that got going. Where was everybody else? Run off by people who think if you support Trump's good qualities, of which there are many, that you can't also support liberty.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."

    Damn it dannno, you have singlehandedly done more damage to this forum than all the other users combined I've seen during my stay here.

    All these threads, having to wade through your tedious, ridiculous spin that serves to glorify the most anti-liberty President I've experienced in my lifetime.

    What even is your purpose here?

    Yeah Freitas is great. Somehow I keep forgetting about him, probably because VA is a tough GOP pickup. Anyone in VA should definitely support him.
