Grieving Mother and Patriot: Liberty Candidates Founder Gigi Bowman

LONG ISLAND, NY, January 23, 2013 ― The rallying cry of the Ron Paul Revolution has been a call to action for some of the most sincere and idealistic people from all across the United States. Many of them have no prior experience in politics but feel a heartfelt mission to make a difference in a world needing desperate change. One such woman is Gigi Bowman, founder of the Liberty Candidates organization which helps unite libertarian minded people of all parties to get their message out and win elections.

Since founding Liberty Candidates in 2009, Bowman’s organization has fielded hundreds of candidates and given their message a national forum to be heard and recognized.

Bowman, who is one of the Ron Paul movement’s most dedicated organizers, entered politics following the tragic loss of her daughter in 2003 to prescription medication. She has been a dynamic advocate for such controversial topics as pharmaceutical reform, GMO labeling and many other issues that candidates and parties are too timid to challenge. Taking her advocacy to the next level, Bowman announced last week her intention to run for office, seeking the New York State Senate seat for District 5.

Gentle yet every bit a courageous mother figure, Bowman wrote in an announcement e-mail to supporters, “I have watched as the loss of liberty has become more and more apparent … I am stepping up today to run for office because I cannot sit back and watch any longer as our beautiful country and the freedoms and liberties that our founders fought so hard for are diminished daily by political parties and administrations that are working against the people, not for the people. While we are struggling to afford what we hope are fresh, healthy food for our children, our legislators spend their days doing photo-ops, ribbon cuttings and running photo contests about our environment instead of educating us about what is happening to our community – most likely they don’t even know themselves!”

That organic label is stamped

That organic label is stamped by the same people who control Monsanto.

Saw a "GMO FREE" label for the first time just the other

day. FYI - It was on a bottle on Langers cranberry juice.
I live in CT - not sure what the laws are in other states- but I can also buy raw milk so we certainly are not as strict as some states.

Well, hello!

Your story rips at my heart - I was put on SSRIs and actually lived through the nightmare that claimed your daughter's life. Your willingness to take that battle to the political arena is the best news I have heard in quite a while.
You knock 'em dead, sweetie.

Free to choose if I want to eat poison

is the American way! If you raise non-gmo's and advertise it, the armed FDA agents may come and confiscate all what you grow. Monsanto is gaining a monopoly on the food industry because we are so complacent. The American population is being slowly poisoned and don't know it.

It's no wonder why most of the civilized countries have banned GMO's. Loaded with nerve agent pesticides, nutrition blocking herbicides, bacteria, viruses, and a antibiotic to boot, what a wonderful choice for the liberty minded people.

Other countries banning GMO's is the only reason we don't have GMO wheat, because wheat is one of the US biggest exports. Thank God the Europeans said no to GMO's!

Bless you, Gigi.

Thank you for a bump my friend

In my opinion Gigi is the hardest working activist in America.
I wish I could match her energy level and passion for the cause of Liberty.

Here is a full text of the email she send to her supporters announcing her run for office:

My name is Gigi Bowman and I am running for office because I am tired of the government infringing on our liberties and rights and I'm here to shout out to my constituents that we have no choice but to become those we are at odds with --our own Government-- in order to get back our liberties and freedoms. This nation was founded on "freedom from government" and we have forgotten why.

I lost my daughter to suicide in 2003. At the time I was a mother who believed in what doctors told me because I believed that the health of my children was in their best interest. I have since learned that the overreach of government combined with lobbying and corporatism is NOT in our best interest.

Since that time I have watched as the loss of liberty has become more and more apparent. From the DHS to the Patriot Act to the TSA to FISA to the NDAA –through anti-liberty legislation we are groped, probed, spied upon and are at risk of getting detained without a trial and for no good reason. We have succumbed to endless war supporting the Military Industrial Complex and have been lied to in order to support Corporate Entities. We submit to institutions like the United Nations whose only mission is to take away our American sovereignty through implementing a plan of action under the guise of sustainable development also known as Agenda 21 and in reality known as Communitarianism --by definition it is loss of individual liberty for the “greater good.” But whose greater good? This is being brought in through our chamber of commerce and our local communities without our knowledge. It is being sold to us and we're buying it because we are too busy working so hard to pay our “bills” that we just don't have the time to research every new law and every new change –and they seem to be coming faster and faster…… and the legislators don't even read the bills themselves! Do we really know what is happening around us?

"Communitarianism is the belief that individual and national sovereignty must be balanced against the needs of the global collective. Their entire foundation for forced social evolution rests on their Big Idea that all the world''s people will be "free" after everyone gives up any claims to their personal freedom. Defined as the new "spirit" of community, Communitarians believe they are leading mankind into an advanced moral and spiritual state of being. Across the globe, communitarian gurus promote a global program designed to create one big, planned, gated community. They call it sustainable community development." ~Niki Raapana http://www.nord.twu.net/acl

I am stepping up today to run for office because I cannot sit back and watch any longer as our beautiful country and the freedoms and liberties that our founders fought so hard for are diminished daily by political parties and administrations that are working against the people not for the people. While we are struggling to afford what we hope are fresh healthy food for our children, our legislators spend their days doing photo-ops, ribbon cuttings and running photo contests about our environment instead of educating US about what is happening to our community ---most likely they don't even know themselves! Why? Because they are NOT WORKING FOR US! They are working to STAY in office with no checks and balances. Like a winning lottery ticket they receive a huge salary, expenses and unending medical and life benefits for themselves and their families and that's all they care about. THIS MUST END!

The issues I intend to bring to the forefront effect ALL of us in our communities from Corporatism and Big Pharma infecting our lives through labeling our children and mandating vaccines and medications to our monetary policies which are causing deflation where we can no longer afford to sustain any sort of standard of living --seniors can't afford to stay in the homes they own because the taxes are so high (which means they don't really own those homes because if they don't pay their taxes they lose them!) and young people can't afford to live on their own. -- If things keep up at the rate they are going Long Island will eventually become a ghost town or a Communitarian campground with the government feeding, supporting and housing a good part of our communities in return for complete loss of liberty.

It is time for individuals like myself to take action. --to step up and stop the overreach of government from infringing on our country if we ever intend to give our offspring a chance in this country. And we have to start locally!

This week I watched as a tragedy in another state brought upon the loss of liberty to the people of New York State. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, upon which our country was founded, and what has kept us as the most freedom loving nation in the world, has been crumbled and discarded. We have given up our Liberty for a little bit of Security. We have given up our rights as a people by having elected people into office that no longer care about the foundation from which America was built.

The issues that are affecting our lives are the issues we need to talk about. From red light cameras on our streets to spying on our families through the internet to genetically modified food being forced upon us without our knowledge to having our children and parents groped and radiated in order to enter a form of public transportation. We can no longer reasonably defend our own property or defend our families in our own homes. We can no longer plan for our future because our dollar has lost its value.

We need to begin at home and we need to begin by educating our parents, children, friends, neighbors, teachers about what is really going on. Why are we letting the future of the next generation down? Why are we making it so hard for the last generation to pay their bills? Why is the Government in charge when our country was founded by the people and for the people?

Think about it. Talk to me. Let’s discuss the issues. Let’s find out what we can do.

I am co-organizer of a group called Save Long Island and every month we show films that will help to enlighten us about the issues I have spoken of above. Check out our website www.savelongisland.org and see what we have learned.The most important thing we must do is ASK QUESTIONS and TALK TALK TALK about what is happening to us in our homes and communities so we can enlighten others and make the changes we need to in order to retain what liberties and freedoms we have left.

Join me. I'm running for office for YOU, and for my family and friends. NOT FOR THE GOVERNMENT
