So again.....

The Liberty Inspiration Award. A few easy steps.

#1 Nominate someone (you can nominate up to three people).

#2 Email it to hello@libertycandidates.com

#3 You have to tell me why you nominate this person.

Here are a few of the beautiful submissions we have received:

I would like to nominate Timothy Pugh of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for the
Liberty Inspiration Award.

Tim has worked very hard to spread the message of liberty for the past
few years now, but since this award is for 2012, that is what I will
focus on.

He played a vital role in bringing people to the Iowa Caucuses for Ron
Paul this past January. Also, he recruited many Ron Paul people to
become delegates to the county, district, and state conventions
following the caucuses.
He coordinated with the Ron Paul campaign to have Dr. Paul speak at
several events in Cedar Rapids this year, and has worked tirelessly to
bring more people to the cause.

When there has been an event or demonstration, Tim is the one making
sure everyone has a way to get there.
If we needed yard signs or literature to distribute, he would get us
supplied.
If we were phone-calling, he was the one making out the lists and
scripts.
He is always communicating with people, meeting new faces, and bringing
together very different people under the banner of Liberty.

Tim Pugh has been an inspiration to many Liberty activists, myself
included.
His energy, passion, and determination encourages all of us to do even
more.
I am privileged to have worked with him on the Ron Paul campaign as
well as on local tax issues, and I highly recommend him for this honor.

Thank You.

Sincerely,
Rachel Jones

I nominate Ian Freeman, Host of the nationally syndicated radio program Free Talk Live. The largest pro-liberty radio program on the air in the world; on 100+ radio stations across the US and voted the Best Political Podcast at podcastawards.com 5 times. The only podcast to win any of their awards that many times. FTL has been on the air for 10 years. That in and of itself is a tireless labor for liberty, but Ian has also done civil disobedience and been arrested for his principles and run for office more than once. There are few on the planet who have done so much for and believe so strongly in the ideals of Liberty.

I would like to nominate Kristin Alpert from Holliston, Massachusetts as a Liberty Inspiration Candidate. Kristin is a nurse, a mom, a wife, and a great friend to the community and to the Massachusetts Liberty movement. She is at the front of the lines at all rallies and marches, has been a key organizer in planning and executing Liberty events, and most importanty, she inspires others and helps grow our movement through her upbeat and postitive attitude. She is a true Patriot and works hard each and every day on spreading the message of Liberty, no matter where she goes. She consistently brings new blood to the movement by educating people and sharing her passion to preserve freedom. She is what keeps me and so many of us going. I do hope that you will consider her as a candidate.

Sincerely,
Sky Weir

I would like to nominate Cindy Lake from NV. She was instrumental (and continues to be, along with her husband) in taking over the Republican Party in Clarke County NV, and works TIRELESSLY for liberty there..

I would also like to nominate Deborah Robinet, for the steadfast and beautiful event she was the host of in Tampa. It was one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences I have ever had, and she took so much on to make it a success. She is a wonderful friend, and amazing patriot.

Lighten up on the incessant bumping. Thanks.

I bump quality posts like this one that ended on the front page

Your boss Michael Nystrom front paged this post by Gigi after he saw it -- because I bumped it.

He didn't front page it because you bumped it. He front paged it because the post is good. Nystrom makes his own decisions. Get over yourself!!!

Blessings )o(

MN just wished me Merry Christmas

You are not Michael's friend.

Over the many years me and Michael we set up a system.
I bump quality front-page worthy posts -- he views them if he sees them as front-page worthy...he front-pages them -- makes his job that much easier.

Stop, get pleasant and respectful of other people's beliefs or you're out of here.

You flame people here, call them names, while at the same time hypocritically chastising them for doing the same thing you do constantly, then the next second posting some BS poem of peace. WTF? Dude? One minute the great fighter for liberty, the next minute some nasty, condescending, holier than thou king, spitting hate and vulgar venom at people .

I'm not asking. I'm telling you, to knock off.

I never ever start flame wars and have NEVER attacked DP member first!

When I get attacked I at times respond..as any human would.

Without responding?

Your hypocrisy is beyond sickening and causing havoc around here.

You do exactly as you just said you did, and post, telling everyone to mind their P's and Q's like some High Horse Do-Gooder-Ghandi-Saint one second, and then three minutes later you're calling someone a Nazi, or spewing hateful remarks at people, or claiming some crazy shit that you've infiltrated the Illuminati.

Stop while you're ahead.

Lay off.

You're the idiot dividing the movement with your mind changing crap and attention seeking posts. One day you are Ron Paul, balls to the wall, the next day some new found heroic worship of Gary Johnson, flaming people here with your antics for fun, or something to do on the internet. YOU CAN'T EVEN VOTE IN THIS COUNTRY.

Stop it already. Stop the attention seeking. It's becoming highly annoying. You've been asked. Did you forget that already?

Look at what you have caused me in the Mod Box.

I took down a post calling you out. I did the same for you that I do for anyone else, and here you are, clueless of that, still pushing people's buttons and validating the Mod Box complaints about you.

I can't stand up for you, like I do everyone else when you continue to poke people around here in the eye with this meaningless nonsensical crap.

Lay off.

Someone (in his place) has to tell the truth to you folks.

Can you explain how you want to grow the Liberty Movement?

I saw ZERO from you and other GJ haters.

You are just floating.

Non-activists!
That you are!

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul

Brief note:

This kind of activity (multiple accounts for voting) is watched for, and shut down when it is found. I personally hunt around for it on slow days or when suspicion arises, and I know other mods here do too on occasion. If the voting system is abused, the abuser's account(s) are removed when found. TOR won't provide you with immunity either. We'll find it, figure it out, and eliminate it at some point. We do it often enough.

For keeping the peace sake, let that be known.
