Who else do we know of running for Congress and standing for Liberty?

**What is a Freedom Candidate?** Feel free to discuss...

My personal thoughts --> Strict Respect for the Constitution/rule of law. May have a D, R, L, or I. The things I look for when looking at their Issues page are Foreign Policy and Federal Reserve; other issues are either parroted by establishment or have not yet gained steam by the populace as a hallmark "issue" (I wouldn't expect MA freedom candidate to have "Secession" as an issue heading or a TN candidate to have "Drug War"... yet).

Vote Libertarian

I just read an answer by Brunner in MO about foreign policy - he sounds like Romney .... wants to go after Iran like all the rest ....
Vote Libertarian - the only candidates that don't want to go to war.

Can you link it

I could then alert friends about this.

Weston Wamp - U.S. Rep - TN 3rd District

I would suggest Weston Wamp (TN-3)



"With threats to freedom coming from all around the world, we must focus on a “peace through strength” strategy and resist the urge to involve US troops in conflicts abroad unless deemed necessary by Congress."

"Weston’s faith and his respect for the Constitution are the foundation from which he sets his policy positions."

"We must deploy free market principles, increase competition, expand access to our private healthcare system and lower costs so that business owners know for certain the government will do no more harm."

"The bottom line is that the role of the federal government is going to have to change in order for the United States to overcome trillions in debt. Spending priorities must be set based on the Constitution, we need to eliminate duplication in government programs and apply innovative private sector methods to modernize the way the federal government does business."

I love the way he ends some of his videos:
"I'm Weston Wamp and I approve this message...Don't you?"

If he's anything like his father Zach,

then he's worthless scum, a warmonger, and a bailout lover.

After Zach Wamp's treachery, I'd need to see some rock solid proof before casting any vote for any of his kin.

Larry Beaman for CA State

Larry Beaman for CA State Senate district in 2012

Johnny Khamis for San Jose City Council in 2012

Both of them voted for Ron Paul.

Any Democrats?


Dennis Flynn (NJ-10)


Pride and greed hold us all back, to the benefit of the few and detriment of the whole.

Thanks for the notification.

Thanks for the notification. I added him. I know there are some Dems in that list, can't remember which ones. I believe Dan O'Connor in NY is running for democrat rep. While it looks like Ron Paul movement is starting to swallow the GOP from the inside, I think it'd be great for RPers to infiltrate the democratic party, especially in regions where you can't when without a D on the end of your name.

"You must be frank with the world; frankness is the child of honesty and courage...Never do anything wrong to make a friend or keep one...Above all do not appear to others what you are not" - Robert E. Lee, CSA

Representatives Dan Roberts CA 1

When I met Dan, I asked him what he thought of the federal reserve bank, and he said, "I talked to Ron paul for 44 minutes...." He proceeded to tell us :
1. What a great guy Ron Paul was, seriously
2. Why the fed needs to end.

Clayton Thibodeau CA 42


I'm still looking into him, if anyone else can vouch for him or give me some more information it would be appreciated. He sounds like a tea party type but Im not sure if he's a Ron Paul guy or just sympathetic. All I know is that whenever I see a Ron Paul sign or bumper sticker around town there's usually a Clayton Thibodeau one right next to it.

Because of redistricting we no longer have to suffer under Mary Bono Mack in the 45th district but out of the frying pan and into the fire we have the rep of the 44th district Ken Calvert, the poster boy of everything we're fighting against in government, who is seeking reelection as the the 42nd rep. He's most likely the establishment pick and needs to be opposed. I went on his site and gagged. I don't like this argument, though it will likely improve as I do more research on Mr. Thibodeau, but almost anyone would be better than Calvert. We're talking serious neocon RINO. I say throw Clayton Thibodeau up on that list too and get him some recognition so we can clean house!

Wrong District

John Dennis is CA-12 not CA-8

Kiran Hill - Nevada - google

Kiran Hill - Nevada - google it and add please.


I agree

You guys did good over there Charles, I for one am very proud of your hard work as a delegate. I hope you have been well my friend.

Unconstitutional War - "The story you are about to hear is true; the names and places are being changed to protect the guilty."

Spoke to his campaign today.

Spoke to his campaign today. I'm gonna psuedo run it in this county, even though it's late. Couple signs, few phone calls.


Thanks! Added him. He seems

Thanks! Added him. He seems great.

Updated lots

Lots of new updates! Added a few people, updated after some primaries, etc. Y'all lemme know if I've missed some or messed some. I removed Mourdock - he's better than Lugar, but...

TJ Fabby for TX

State district 10. He is a big time Ron Paul supporter.


NJ District 7

We've got to get Lance out of office! He pretends to be a conservative and brags about his vote against Obamacare. What he fails to say is what he did vote for in the Obamacare package and his votes against our civil liberties. Neocon all the way.

Please add to NJ: For Congress, District 7: David Larsen


Larsen is our best hope for D7. Leonard Lance has got to go!

Add Dr. Johnny Lee for CD 19

Add Dr. Johnny Lee for CD 19 in California for 2014.

He is running in 2014, but has already started to campaign early.

Please add for NJ

For Congress, District 6: Anna Little

For Congress, District 7: David Larsen

For US Senate: Bader Qarmout

All of the above are supported by the Bay Shore Tea Party. THAT Tea Party endorses Ron Paul.

“It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life.”
―Emmet Fox

Update: Richard Mourdock defeated Richard Lugar...

... in yesterday's Indiana Primary.

A Constitutional, Christian conservative who voted for Ron and stands with Rand

Mourdock is a Mixed Bag

Mourdock good on fiscal issues, 2nd amendment, pro-life. But supports status quo foreign policy, supports the Patriot Act.

Libertarian Andy Horning, will be challenging him in the general election. Reading his website and talking to RP supporters here in Indiana, Horning is rock solid in all liberty issues including foreign policy.

Suggestion: Please post the link to Horning's Website...

... so that we can evaluate him. Thank you!

A Constitutional, Christian conservative who voted for Ron and stands with Rand

I have one I think you should consider adding...

I'd like to have Lauren Stephens added. She's attempting to primary Tom Petri (WI-6). You could make the case that WI-6 is the most conservative/Republican district in Wisconsin, so if she can pull off the upset against Petri, she likely wins the General in a landslide.

She isn't as outspoken against the Fed (so far) as I would like, but she's completely opposed to the Patriot Act, NDAA, unconstitutional and undeclared war, etc.

She isn't "official" yet, because she still needs to get signatures to get placed on the ballot, but she is trying to get them.

I have spoken to her numerous times, and I feel she's legit. If anyone here lives in Wisconsin's 6th district, and is as sick of Petri as I am, let me know. I'd like to ask for your signature to get her on the ballot.

Thank you.

Suggestion: Please post the link to Her Website...

...so that we can evaluate her. Thank you!

Eric Martin, Travis Schooley, and Evan Feinberg all lost their primaries.

Feinstein, Dianne CA
