What is a Liberty Candidate?Submitted by GigiBowman on Thu, 12/17/2009 - 16:41
I am the organizer for Liberty Candidates 2010 - a facebook page with over 1,900 members that has a coordinating committee meet up and a blog http://gigibowman.wordpress.com/2009/11/28/hello-world/ We just had our first Money Bomb on the Anniversary of the Boston Tea Party and it was very successful! Hopefully all of the candidates received some kind of donation. They need them badly. In the meantime the links are there so that we can donate to them at any time. Our next Money Bomb is The rEVOLution Money Bomb on Febraury 17th. I hope you can help and donate to them at this time!
Here is the link to the facebook page

But What is a Liberty Candidate?
Liberty Candidates are Ron Paul Republicans/Libertarians/Constitutionalist. Most of them are Liberty Candidates because they know who Ron Paul is. They have, in the past, been a delegate, donated to him, were inspired by him, were on a Ron Paul meet-up, know how to fundraise, hang a sign in the most obsolete areas of the planet and get teary eyed when they see the movie "For Liberty". A Liberty Candidate will understand what I'm saying here.
Usually I will see a Liberty candidate not skip over "Foreign Policy" in the issues part of their candidate website because they are adamant about wanting the war to end and wanting to bring our troops home now! Even if they are running for comptroller I'll still know how they feel about wanting the war to end, ending the fed and sound money so It's easy for me to tell a liberty candidate. If I were running I would be one. I'm here because of Ron Paul. If you look up my name on google you will see that I was a delegate for Ron Paul, dressed in black at night and hung signs on overpasses for Ron Paul, donated to Ron Paul, I ran a Ron Paul meetup, I'm an organizer for a Campaign for Liberty Group and I am the Suffolk County, NY Organizer for Campaign for Liberty.
So on this note, I have a lot of people posting on the Liberty Candidate page asking me why they are not listed. I have their friends asking in a huff why they are not listed. I have candidates telling me they are Liberty Candidates and then I read their websites and it appears they want to make sure all the terrorist and muslim jihadist (a phrase that Liberty candidates would never use) need to be blown off the face of the earth and we need to go to war with Iran and I wonder.....does this person know what a liberty candidate is?
The people listed as Liberty candidates now are Liberty candidates. Adam Kokesh is a liberty candidate. Go and read Adam's page and then tell me if you are a liberty candidate before you send me email demanding to be on this list. Don't post your name on the page saying you are a liberty candidate when you haven't been accepted yet. Our Liberty Candidates have been asked to be Liberty Candidates or were listed as such because it was obvious they were or they were put before a committee who decided. We want to makes sure that they stand apart from the Rest. Liberty Candidates are NOT Neocons. (and we know this phrase from Ron Paul's speech Neo-Conned)
The only way to change our government is to elect Liberty Candidates. There is no other way to do that. I see no difference between the old boss and the new boss that we have now. The war continues as does The Patriot Act.
This is not change. If you want change donate to our liberty candidates today*
