New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Delaware Primaries - Tuesday 9/11/2012

This thread will be updated regularly on Tuesday 9/11/2012

Everyone needs to get off their arse and vote "liberty candidates" into office so we can change the playing field in the country that has bent and broken the rules against us. If you don't live in a primary state, then do YOUR part and get the word out that people from New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Delaware must go out and vote on Tuesday.

On Tuesday 9/11/12 people in New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Delaware have a chance to pull the rug out from under the status quo because the sheeple are only motivated to go vote in the big elections. Below I've collected names of liberty candidates from different sources. I suggest voting for these people, but nothing trumps your own research. I don't know it all and someone's definition of a "liberty candidate" may differ from yours.

New Hampshire: 9/11/12
polling hours 6:00a EDT (1000 UTC) to 8:00p EDT (0000 UTC). Polls must open by 11 AM however most open between 7 AM and 8 AM. NEW HAMPSHIRE permits its 13 cities to keep their polls open until 8 PM Eastern Time by local option- however, as there ARE only 13 cities among New Hampshire's 234 County subdivisions [the 221 "non-cities", of course, being the proverbial New England Town(ship)], the fact is that the vast majority of NH's polls have closed by 7 PM Eastern Time and the networks have no problem considering this hour as the earliest hour of potential projection.

Is there anyone else?
Check out New Hampshire: http://www.thegreenpapers.com/G12/NH Rhode Island: http://www.thegreenpapers.com/G12/RI Delaware: http://www.thegreenpapers.com/G12/DE see if your district has a run off. It may say something like "Proceeds to Runoff on 11 September 2012" under a candidate's name if they're participating in this election.

I'm not in either of these states, is there a run off election in my state? There are a bunch and you can find out here: http://www.thegreenpapers.com/G12/events.phtml?format=chrono...

There's no one for me to vote for in the run off, who should I be considering to vote for in addition to Ron Paul in the November 6th general election? I've put together a list of as many liberty candidates as I could find, organized by election date, here: http://www.dailypaul.com/242897/updated-list-of-liberty-cand...

There's a run off or other election, but none of the participants are listed as liberty candidates I'm not omnipotent. Just because I don't have someone on my list doesn't mean they're not a liberty candidate. It's up to you to do the research. Find out when your next election by you is at http://www.thegreenpapers.com/G12/events.phtml?format=chrono... and research the candidates.

There's someone not on your list that should be Please leave that person's name, office running for, election date and any other information in the comment section of http://www.dailypaul.com/242897/updated-list-of-liberty-cand...

There's someone on this list that shouldn't be This list is collected from many different sources and what qualifies someone as a "liberty candidate" may not meet everyone's qualifications. Please feel free to leave a comment stating your opinion and why. I would like all opinions, good and bad, to be put out there so everyone can make a decision based on all information.

What can I do to get more people to the polls for these elections to vote for these liberty candidates? The main problem is that only a very few people even know these elections are taking place. Please share this information in EVERY way you can. Re-tweet, thumbs up, add to every social network, ask the mods to put this on the front page on the 11th, etc. Promote this thread as best you can.

Any news on how it went

Any news on how it went today?

"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

Today was an election day?

I didn't vote. Don't care.

If you spend thirty seconds looking at media in NH (or any stupid state), but let's focus on NH for now.

the republican is GUINTA
the democrat is SHEA-PORTER

why the heck is there a primary vote?

waste of time. have a nice day. do I need to reference the presidential election "primary" ? Romney "won" on day one. There's a reason the RNC was not a convention but a coronation.

Here's an idea:

DON'T VOTE.

Stop pretending government matters. Stop pretending we can change this bureaucracy that dictates our lives. Just subvert the system in every way you can, and prepare for the day it crumbles. In the recent Tom Woods C-SPAN video, he makes the case for government dissolving, so that we can experience a "clean slate." Let's hope for that instead of this horse race B.S. political game that leads to nothing. Even if RP was prez, I don't think we'd fix anything. It's bound to fail. The ideological debate is on/ the physical battle is over. Don't vote. Get ready to watch the tidal wave hit the city.

If it didn't matter, you wouldn't be reading or commenting on

this blog. You can't fool us. LOL!

ALWAYS ask youself question...

WHY... are we using the INCORRECT LANGUAGE "Liberty candidates" to describe REPUBLICANS?

WHY... don't we just say "republicans?"

WHY... don't we use "Liberty republicans?"

WHY... are REPUBLICAN PARTY CANDIDATES listed... while OMITTING third party candidates?

Does this seem overtly DECEPTIVE to anyone?

Does DECEPTION restore Liberty?

Didn't the FAKE-TEA GOP use the SAME TACTICS in 2010 TO ELECT A GAGGLE OF FAKE-TEA REPUBLICANS, by DECEPTIVELY calling them "tea party conservatives?"

Are we NOT... learning?

Are our memories so shallow?

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

WHY...DO you TYPE like

WHY...DO you TYPE like this?
Does it seem like a CONSPIRACY?

MY CAPS lock button is not working CORRECTLY...Are we not Liberty?

IT IS a... MYSTERY.............REPUBLICANS

Southern Agrarian

Maybe because if you actually

Maybe because if you actually go through the list you'd find that there are more than just republicans on it, but that would require reading instead of trolling.

Exactly.

The ambiguity is DESIGNED to blend republicans in with third parties under a DECEPTIVE umbrella of "Liberty Candidates." That's EXACTLY what exposes the deception! I've got name, State, district, etc... but STRANGELY... no party affiliation. Hmmm....

Again, EXACTLY what GOP tea party CO-OPTERS did just a few year ago. Statists Bachmann, West, Rubio, etc... were NEVER billed as "republicans," but "tea party conservatives." Same SCAM.

HOWEVER... I actually did randomly pick a name: Mark Warden. But nowhere do I see the LIBERTARIAN OPPONENT Lisa Wilber. I'm not the sharpest tool and don't know spit about Lisa Wilber... but, am I missing something? Is she... NOT a "Liberty Candidate?" Is she NOT on the ballot?

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Maybe if you stopped wasting

Maybe if you stopped wasting your time picking out conspiracies and just suggested names then I wouldn't think you had some kind of brain damage due to your caps lock going on and off. I really don't care about party politics. It's a waste of time. I prefer to concentrate on the issues. Maybe you should put your own list up.

Fantastic REPUBLICAN list!

Personally, I detest REPUBLICANS, after having been burned OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER, but good luck with your REPUBLICAN candidates from the REPUBLICAN party. I'm sure voting in more REPUBLICANS from the REPUBLICAN party will be completely different than the last set of REPUBLICANS from the REPUBLICAN party. The REPUBLICAN party help create the REPUBLICAN mess we face from REPUBLICANS, but these REPUBLICANS from the REPUBLICAN party, I'm sure, will help us solve the REPUBLICAN mess.

GO REPUBLICANS!!!!!!!!!!!

SAME AS THE LAST REPUBLICANS!!!!!!!!

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Hmmm....

I notice the word "republican" has been strangely OMITTED from these lists... OF REPUBLICANS. I wonder... why? The FAKE-TEA republicans used the SAME DECEPTIVE TACTIC a few years ago.

Personally, I will NOT VOTE for ANY republicans, whether they DISGUISE THEMSELVES as "Liberty candidates" or not.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

kinda like how Ron Paul is a

kinda like how Ron Paul is a REPUBLICAN, right?

Ron Paul is not a Republican.

"Evan Cutler of Alaskans for Ron Paul told those on the conference call that he spoke at length with Paul and his wife last Friday. Cutler said Paul told him he has not completely ruled out a third-party run. Cutler said Paul did express concerns about ballot access and the money that would be required for such a run.
According to Cutler, Paul was 'no longer a Republican as of Friday,' and for Paul to get his name on the ballot in all 50 states, Paul would have to be on the Libertarian Party ticket. "

SOURCE: PAUL 'REPUBLICAN NO MORE,' NOT RULING OUT THIRD-PARTY RUN
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/09/03/Ron-Paul-...

Ron Paul

is the SOLE EXCEPTION to this equation. Had Rand NOT knelt to kiss the ring of the LEFTIST, SOCIALIST GOP... he would've been #2, and your assertion would have a tad more strength.

Brother Winston Smith

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

Delaware Liberty Candidates

on the ballot would be Rose Izzo for State Rep & Will McVay in District 32.

I just voted in N.H. also.

I voted for Ron Paul for Gov. and Cong. and then had one liberty cand. for rep. and one for delegate.

LIBERTY OR DEATH!!!

Just Voted in NH

I now have at least one vote for myself as Delegate :P
I was also the only one listed on my Ballot, however there was a write in with a picket sign outside...

Good luck, liberty candidates!

Let the changing of the guard continue.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Broken down NH 9/11 Primary recommendations

See a broken down version of the recommendations here. For 4 of the counties, the recommendations are broken down extremely nicely. For the other 6 counties, it is still a much more readable format than listed above. http://www.dailypaul.com/254111/new-hampshire-primary-on-tue...

Great example of difference between states.

I've always read that New Hampshire was a liberty loving state. Keep up the great work for liberty.

Pro-liberty candidates for the 9/11/12 NH Primary

[] Andy Sanborn Senate Dist 9
[] Ken Hawkins Senate Dist 9

In that race I recommend Andy Sanborn, he was endorsed by Ron Paul. Ken Hawkins is actually not a RINO but he is an establishment Republican who has taken heat for anti-liberty positions on guns and medical marijuana. Andy Sanborn was a co-chair of the Ron Paul campaign in NH.

[] John Reagan Senate Dist 17
[] Howard Pearl Senate Dist 17

Both candidates are listed but John Reagan is the pro-liberty candidate. He is the candidate endorsed by groups like the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance.

[] Sam Cataldo Senate Dist 6
[] Dick Green Senate Dist 6

In that race I recommend Sam Cataldo. Neither candidate is pro-liberty but Dick Green is the establishment RINO and Sam Cataldo is a pretty good conservative.

I noticed that a bunch of candidate without contested primaries are listed, which is also fine. A bunch of the candidates on the list are Libertarian Party candidates and will not be on the ballot on primary day.

Andy Sanborn is great! He was

Andy Sanborn is great! He was the only candidate I've seen during this cycle who went to our selectboard (Sharon) meetings and fielded questions from my fellow select persons. When I saw Ron Paul endorse him, I was even more sold.

I'm from RI and I don't like Hinckley

I really don't like the incumbent. But honestly don't like Hinckley. He basically hooks onto anything the Ron Paul folks do and somehow does some sort of mental jujitsu and turns it into a sign wave for him. At one GOP meeting people showed up with their Ron Paul signs - as it was supposed to be a Ron Paul sign wave and Hinckley's lapdog young republican started handing out Hinkley T-shirts and taking everyone's Ron Paul signs and gave them Hinkley signs. Most of the Ron Paul people left in disgust. As I sat through the GOP meeting he made a point to make sure that he wormed his way and sat next to me for the photographers that were there (I'm pretty much the recognizable Ron Paul person) and I didn't like how he needed to make it look like I was OK with him tricking the RonPaulers to come out and do his dirty work. The guy trots out his cute kid and exploits the crap out of him. I'm sorry. I do not like the incumbent at all. But I really don't appreciate Hinckley. AND when asked if it was time to implement stricter gun laws and his thoughts about the 2nd amendment - instead of just saying something like "its in the Bill of Rights and I honor the Law of the Land..." or something as benign as that, he opens his yap and says, "Now is not the time to discuss this without some serious thought." WHAT THE HECK??!! AND every GOP meeting he comes to they have to get someone to bring him out from the bar to which he retreats after he's done his campaigning. I'm sorry. But this guy is already just too much of a politician. I don't care him.

2 Ron Paul Signs I-95 N (Cranston)

Thanks for the inside info (on Hinckley), he seemed like a typical politician during the URI rally waiting line when he walked down the rows shaking hands.

Mike Donahue, any thoughts?

Just sent out this Info to my In-Laws in Rhode Island. Most people just need the reminder that there's an election. It usually takes no more than 5 minutes to make it to the polling location & vote (especially at these low turn out primaries).

Thank you so much for the info.
