    Thumbs up Glenn Jacobs up by 17 votes in County Mayor race!!!

    HOLY CRAP!!!!

    Pro-liberty candidate Glenn Jacobs (WWE's Kane) is up for Knox County Mayor by 17 votes at final count!!!



    Glenn Jacobs and Brad Anders continue to be neck and neck, now with every precinct reporting in the Knox County mayoral Republican primary.


    Jacobs is leading Anders, 14,633-14,616, a total of 17 votes. It is unlikely that the race will be called Tuesday night.

    If I had that car it would be rockin' a LIttle Tykes Cozy Coupe paint job.




    Then I would drive it off a cliff.
    * 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.

    "We even have an extremist InfoWars guest in our election for Knox County mayor. Glenn Jacobs, Republican candidate and former wrestler, once popped up on Jones’ program for a chummy and bizarre 22-minute chat about “the state’s monopoly on currency,” police state tyranny of the Transportation Security Administration, persecution of homeschoolers, and globalist monetary scheming.

    Even more revealing are Jacobs' articles on a radical libertarian website. He wrote in 2013, opposing sales tax on internet sales, “As with all tax programs, it will transfer resources from the productive sector of the economy to the parasitic sector.” Damn those parasitic kids and their insistence on schools, books and teachers.

    Jacobs wrote in the same article, “If politicians were truly interested in fairness, they would eliminate coercive taxation from the marketplace altogether.” Wow, that’s going to make paying for Knox County government services impossible. That same year Jacobs wrote, “Unfortunately, our great nation can no longer afford compromise and bipartisanship,” absolutism he justified in defense of liberty and property. So how does one ever get agreement on a zoning ordinance or storm-water plan? Must we perpetually be suing one another rather than agree on a set of rules for living together in communities?"

    Saw him in it a Calhoun's on the River once in Knoxville. It's ridiculous for sure. He should have used the campaign slogan "Head and shoulders above the rest!", because anytime I saw him in a crowd that was the case.

    He won.

    WWE’s Kane wins the Republican primary in Tennessee mayoral race

    In the ring, he’s Kane, a “monstrous” wrestler with a “sadistic” streak. But to East Tennesseans, he’s also Glenn Jacobs, the owner of a local insurance firm who wants to “do his part” to grow small business and shrink big government.

    In a battle Tuesday between the two, it looks like Jacobs, who’s running for mayor of Knox County, Tenn., won. The 7-foot-tall, 300-pound WWE athlete clinched the Republican primary election by just 17 votes.

    “A lot of people look at me and say, ‘Oh, he’s that wrestler guy. That’s why people voted for him,’” Jacobs, 51, told Knox News. “That may have gotten my foot in the door with some people. Certainly, the novelty of someone like me running in a race like this, but in the end it was the message.”

    Didn't know he was doing this. Good for him. Great for him! He's an intelligent guy. I hope he will be able to manage effectively and make a big difference for good in the county. He's "mayor" (unusual terminology) of the whole county now, BTW, not just of a town or city. Almost half a million people there -- this is no "major of Big Water, Utah," as the LP had for so many years.

    True. It is a big deal. The current governor of Tennessee was previously mayor of Knoxville.
