If You’re Angry at Benton, Read This


You know what it means to Jesse Benton to hear us bitching about him? Nothing. He’s living the good life, rich off our money. His family will be set for life, while you all donated what little cash you had to the campaign, even though you weren’t sure how you were gonna pay the bills. You donated what little you had, and Ron didn’t win one state in 8 years. And now Jesse has a lucrative job with GOP Establishment hack, McConnell. The only way Jesse is gonna care that you’re pissed, is if you take your anger for him, out on his new boss, by helping McConnell’s future opponent.

Are you a supporter of TRUE Liberty, have the stomach for politics, live in Kentucky, and can’t stand McConnell? Well then announce you’re running for Senate against McConnell and then sign up here > http://libertycandidates.com < The TRUE grassroots will have your back.

I usually don't let my emotions speak here

so I might as well let it all out.

*clears throat*

Funk Yes! Show that son of a mother who is boss! The voters are going to take back this country, you pathetic sock sucker! Can I get some love from the crowd? Let me hear a...um...Exclamation "!"

Let's show that Mitch who's the Ban!

McConnell must go!

PS. Jesse Benton sucks



On Constitution Day last year, I meant to donate $17.76 to Ron Paul's campaign. I FORGOT TO PUT THE DECIMAL IN. I ACCIDENTALLY donated $1,776 in one whack! That was more than half of what I had in the bank. I consoled myself with the thought that at least it went to a good cause. Now, I know that was $1,776 wasted.

Somebody needs to challenge McConnell and teach Benton a lesson.


I am so so sorry, but I LOL'd at your goof! I could totally see myself doing that. DECIMALS are very important! LOL

Yes, we need to run one of

Yes, we need to run one of our people against McConmanly and win.

This is a great idea.

If for nothing else it hurt Benton's credibility in the GOP





Weird. I only recognize 2 poster's names in this thread

Lots of comments from people I've never seen post.


Something smells fishy here.

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


please return my liberty 0% chance of that we're going to have to take it back the old fashioned way

Who cares

All this whining about Benton is a waste.
He's gone now, move on.

if we do we can be fooled again.
The support for Benton was thick here as if his misdeeds were some sort of genius strategy to win by not fighting or win by losing.
Some of us knew then (the minority) that this was not the case and it was all about Jesse.

It's not whining to say "never again."

Nor is it whining to find out what happened to your hard-earned cash after you donated it.

Support the Constitution of the United States

It's good to be against the establishment and all...

But are we sure that the opponent isn't like Obama is to Bush?

Is the opponent an establish hack or is he really a liberty candidate? We have to be sure about that

LibertyChat would probably like nothing more than for you

give your personal information to him and his pals so they can use it at a later date.

Better yet.. How about taking advantage of an opportunity to use a situation to promote someone they want in office and funnel your hard earned money to do it all while you think you're supporting a Liberty candidate and giving it to McConnell.

Just a word of advice.. Investigate, investigate and investigate, if you are really serious about your Liberty.

Liberty Chat is a troll website, as evidenced in previous posts

And for the record, Ron Paul won numerous states. Nice job promoting mainstream media propaganda, and who knows what other devious things.

How would Jesse Benton be set

How would Jesse Benton be set for life based off of campaign contributions? Please elaborate on that a bit.

It is very odd, though, how Benton could very well end up working against us in future elections based on the employment he keeps.


well ive been living off >20k the past few years...

I believe 500k would set me up for life. I'm so glad my contributions will at least get him by a few months, poor thing, he needs it more than I.

Anyway I believe what was meant by that set for life statement was that his stint as RPs campaign manager, the experience and connections he made during that time, not so much the money, has set his career for life as a political wheeler dealer. He will live off the success of the grass roots and claim credit for their efforts and sacrifices. His clients won't know any better, "oh you inspired all those rabid Ron Paul fans? Can you do the same for me and my campaign?" "Of course!" he'll say but he can't deliver. But he'll just keep on beating that dead horse and peddling his snake oil all the way to the bank. He doesnt seem to mind what a rat fink he is.

For us it's just another one chalked up to experience I guess.


I've seen it said he was paid roughly $500k, though I have no idea whether that's true. It may have been disclosed in the quarterly financial statements, but as I have not yet looked at them, I don't know for sure.

A Very Important Point

By all means, please PLEASE work against McConnell as diligently as you can afford to. However, it's important to recognize that giving money to his opponent, simply for being his opponent, is no better than voting for a democrat just because you don't like the republican (or vice versa). We weaken our message and diminish our successes by giving the appearance of support for those with whom we don't actually agree. McConnell has provided an entire career's worth of flubs to exploit against him...better to use them effectively than to prop up whoever his challenger is.

So I urge everyone: only donate to those and for those with whom you actually agree and support. Doing anything else lands us right in the same trap that has most people chained to the false dichotomy of the two party system.

Of course, the caveat to the above is if his challenger is a genuine liberty candidate. Then, by all means, go all in.

No thanks,

my money and politics don't mix anymore.
