We've got a young guy similar to PK

running for mayor of Austin. He is also 26 years old. After graduating college, Clay DeFoe attended a Ron Paul political conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, an event that would change his life.

From Clay's website:

I have stood up for the individual Constitutional rights of the people of Austin, as I opposed Austin’s banning of peaceful individuals from City Hall under the threat of “criminal trespass violations.”

I am also concerned about the over-regulation of the lives of Austinites. I am an outspoken critic who has opposed such measures as the single-use grocery bag ban, short-term rental regulations, an attempt to ban non- FDA approved eggs city-wide, and the excessive regulation of live music.

I believe in protecting the health and individual rights of Austinites, regardless of existing political conventions. I oppose the City of Austin’s mass medication of our citizens through fluoridation of the city’s water supply and will seek to eliminate the practice. In addition, I opposed the installation of Advanced Imaging Technology body scanners at Austin Bergstrom International Airport and will do all within my power to see that these personally invasive and physically dangerous machines are removed from our airport.

To any Austinites out there, Clay needs your support!

This is what the revolution is all about...

I have said in the past the revolution is not just about Ron Paul. All revolutions start from the ground up, we are doing a good job of taking over the party first, with our delegates and chairmanships. Then our people must win local state and congressonal posts. We should seize the momentum Ron has provided us and expand the revolution in all parts of government. When the status quo sees the political power we can manage, they will quickly fall in line.

To summarize what I am saying, I would like to see more daily paulers running for offices in all levels of the government.

I think he means he's contemplating because you have to be 25, so he figures he's got 4-6 years to think about it, invest in the idea, etc.

Best of luck to him :) More Justin Amash's in the making!
