Maine Representative Aaron Libby and LL Bean's Linda Bean Endorse Ron Paul for President!

***Update! Representative Aaron Libby of Maine endorsed Ron Paul today at a campaign stop in Alfred, Maine.

“We need to change our cradle-to-grave government mentality. Cutting taxes is not enough. We must reduce the size and cost of our federal government. I am tired of the status quo, big-government politicians of both sides of the aisle. Ron Paul represents real cuts, real change, for a free and prosperous America. I am a Ron Paul Republican,” said Rep. Libby.

**Update! According to the Washington Post, Linda Bean, Grand Daughter of the LL Bean founder and prominent Republican activist in Maine, is the first of two endorsements today.

"He's very electable, he crosses all ideological lines because of his strong message," Bean said. "He's for the gold standard. I think people want stability in this country. He's for helping America domestically, and staying out of aggressive wars. We're just spending ourselves down the drain in these countries year after year with occupation."

I'm thinking the exact same

I'm thinking the exact same thing. Was really hoping this would be the case! Maybe they're planning on announcing his endorsement tomorrow afternoon, where it would create a lot of buzz immediately before Tuesday?

I would recommend...

that the Governor wear his best LL Beans if he know's what's good for his career.

Proud New Customer

Just made purchase on LL Bean website.

Excellent.

Now would be a good time to go shopping .....

Are you Sick of all the Scoundrels down in Washington, D.C.
Do you Want someone to Stand up and defend your liberty
Do you Think our nation's Cap'tal needs a Major overhaul
Well then Join the R3volution Get Behind Ron Paul!

~to Turkey in the Straw~

Good timing...

I was planning on picking up a few long-sleeve shirts and sweaters, too. Just spent some time on the LL Bean site.

Sales

I just wrote the company and let them know they just earned a new customer due to Linda Bean's public endorsement of Ron Paul.

Blue Republican

I need some new tops to wear to work. I hope their sales explode!

What happened to the original

What happened to the original article with the photo of Linda shaking Ron's hand?? Thanks.

I removed Washington post

from my search results. But thanks for the update.

For some fun reading

click the above Washington Post link. And then read the comments. It has been a very long time since I have read so many positive comments about Paul from a site that wasn't Daily Paul.

For example from Caardvaark

Ron Paul does not exist
Ron Paul exists but he is a kook
Ron Paul is a kook but he has some good ideas
Ron Paul has good ideas but he is unelectable
Ron Paul is unelectable but he can win lots of delegates
Ron Paul can win lots of delegates but he can't win the nomination
Ron Paul can't win the nomination but he can go to the convention
Ron Paul can go to the convention but only make a speech
Ron Paul can make a speech and get a position in the administration
Ron Paul can get a position in the administration and that Position is President

I think I would like to move to Maine. They seem to have their heads on their shoulders there!

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Glad to see another Virginian

Glad to see another Virginian on this board! I'm in Williamsburg.

Nice to meet ya.

A lot of Paul supporters are going to come out of the woodwork soon.

Virginia should be a center of liberty-mindedness.

Even though our governor (who I voted for lol)...endorsed Romney! Booo!

So far.

Virginia is on my list for opposing NDAA

Washington is on my list for potentially legalizing Gold And Silver.

We are opposing NDAA? Well allright!

Time to NULLIFY that bastard law!

Is she donating money to the Super PACs?

IDEA: Ron Paul Endorsement List

Maybe this already exists somewhere, but it would be productive to have an updated running list of endorsements that people could share with their friends and family thru social media. These Endorsements could have links to the original news as well as contact links provided where we could send emails or donations (political endorsements).

This may already exist somewhere else. If so, please provide link.

Thanks in advance!

OK

I did my homework. She is an owner and on the board of LL Bean. So now I will consider buying clothes from their catalogue.

That's great to know,

I have ordered all our winter outerwear from LL Bean for years and now I have even more reason to be pleased to have done so.
