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
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
If we were phone-calling, he was the one making out the lists and
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
His energy, passion, and determination encourages all of us to do even
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.
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.
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.
