MEDINA WAS NOT A LOSS, BUT A VICTORY

I think we need to reflect and learn. Debra, with the help of liberty minded people, got the message out, attracked a good portion of the vote and shows the movement is growing. 5 years ago she would have been lucky to get less than 1% of the vote.
Also reflect on the Ron Paul's run for presidency,he LOST, if you look at an election like a super bowl event, a winner and a looser. Look at Ron now, won cpac, favorable interviews, seems like daily. This is a continuous battle, not won in single events, but by continuously moving forward with vigilance.
Debra got 18% of the vote, thats huge, it shows that despite the MSM trying to stop her she still showed strong. Lets build on this as a victory and move forward.

Who's with me??

I'm going to be frank

I ran for office and was in the double digits as a Libertarian candidate. First time I might add in our county as a ballot choice. But I still lost. The houses I stopped at and the people I talked to didn't matter I lost. So I think the positive in all of this is we have to put ourselves out there. Have to get the message out. It's a giant block of ice that we can only impact one cube at a time. But we have to do it. It's a numbers games as is any change. Had it to do over I would have started campaigning a year earlier than I did. All my work in the community was forgotten on election day. I was a stranger from a weird party. So baby steps are still steps, eventually we run.

Kudos

That takes a lot of courage and moxie to put yourself out there. Kudos, Congratulations and Thanks!

Agreed.

I feel the same way. Yesterday she garnered almost 20% of the Texas vote. Next time she could easily get 51% of the Texas vote.

As our economy falters, government won't fulfill its obligations and all the people will start feeling some pain, they're going to snap out of their slumber and realize how important it'll be to vote for a person like Debra Medina.

It's only a matter of time... It's not if, but when.

As long as we keep spreading our message of freedom and sound money/competing currencies, we could hopefully have the idea in enough minds that it'll be impossible for any other government FIAT money to be pushed on us after the U.S. dollar crashes.

If we win that battle, we've basically saved the world so humanity could progress in its natural state. There will be a New World Order, just not the way the elitists think it'll be.

agreed

my sentiments exactly.

Agreed!

My sentiments too!

Look at the dollar/vote ratio between

the three candidates. That puts the outcome into a whole new light!

5 stars

She won a quarter million votes in Texas.

That's an average of 34 votes in 8236 precincts.

That's 34 votes for 1500 registered voters per precinct.

Work the numbers locally. We must't listen to the collective voices that call us to believe the polls.

Free includes debt-free!

Medina

I agree! Nearly 300,000 votes in a primary with only a 750,000 dollar budget, against a ex-Senator and a incumbent with a combined total of 24 million dollars campaign funding. Stunning is the word I would use to describe it! I'd say she has a future.

I agree. AND she inspired a lot of people

new to the ideas of freedom and likely will inspire more candidates to run on principle.

More important to win hearts and minds and to spread

ideas and truth, than that a specific candidate wins.
Eventually politics will reflect the will of the people.

This is absolutely true!!

Liberty is winning--and not only in the USA, but in other countries as well! ; )
