I'm going to have a very awesome friend who works in PR - turn this into a press release and blast it out to over 200k journalists/media outlets/broadcasters/networks/talk show hosts. The media needs to know these people are out there and that they should be talking to them - the timing is perfect for this!
If an awesome patriot(s) would like to help me fund this getting out there and getting these amazing people and their organizations/projects more exposure, please contact me!
Meet the Libertarian Activists Behind the Scenes in the GOP Uprising
Justin Machacek is an Emmy award winning television producer, independent faith-based filmmaker, and promotional creative. He serves as the president of Reel Deal Productions, Inc. in Fort Worth, Texas and as the Senior On Air Producer for one of the largest Christian television networks in the world. Justin has worked closely with many of the most prominent Christian ministries and faith-based media organizations in America. He was also a spokesman for Evangelicals for Ron Paul 2012 and now, along with Pastor Brian Jacobs, (Pastor Jacobs worked closely with Rev. Billy Graham in the past and introduced him to President George W. Bush during the 2000 election, and later served as spokesman of Christians for Ron Paul 2012) together they head up the newly formed American Liberty Association.
Robin Koerner is a British permanent resident of the USA and founder of watchingamerica.com, a website dedicated to providing articles translated into English written about the U.S. by foreigners with the goal of helping to raise level of debate, open minds, and promote understanding among the people of the world. Robin, with his global perspective on things here in America, has become increasing concerned with what he sees as an unnecessary and false left/right divide that needs to be redefined for the times we find ourselves living in, and has come up with out of the box ways to help us get there. When Rand Paul said this “We’ve got to appeal to younger voters, the West Coast, people who view Republicans as in league with crony capitalists and the wealthy, and those who are suspicious of endless foreign interventions, otherwise, we are going to become a niche product for red states.” Robin Koerner was there with a movement to help make it happen -
Aaron Boone and Anthony Astolfi are credited with being the activists that started the “Draft Rand Paul for Senate” campaign back in 2008, and Senator Rand Paul said it best when he called them “young political hacks from California." They’ve wasted no time drafting him for a presidential campaign in 2016.
Curt Schultz and Eric Petroni helped redefine what effective grassroots political campaigning looked like when they launched their “Super Brochure” project - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2Koo35fUk8 - last year and mailed hundreds of thousands of brochures independently of the campaign they were supporting. This year Curt and Eric have supporting the 2nd Amendment in their sights, as they look to again help sway the national conversation with their brochures.
John Ramsey and Preston Bates were behind the most effective conservative Super Pac of 2012, hands down - 9 out of the 10 republican candidates they supported won their elections – contrast that to Karl Roves less than 2% success rate last year and it really seems that it should be John and Preston offering advice on Fox News and not Mr. Rove. Liberty for All was formed to accomplish a single goal: “to put America back on track by helping to elect candidates who understand that limited government is the basis of security, prosperity and peace” – and you might really want to know what these guys have in store for 2014 and 2016.
Bryce Shonka (former deputy director of the 10th Amendment Center) has been behind some very ambitious national projects in the past, and hopes to take things to a new level in inspiring local action all across the country with the event he is working on now - a conference that brings people together from across the political spectrum with a focus on real world solutions that Washington State can bring about to scale back the entity that President Eisenhower warned us about – the Military Industrial Complex.
David Crowley had been making movies since high school, and after joining the service and experiencing our capacity for spreading democracy via two combat tours, David left the military in 2009, and became involved with the liberty movement through film, and is now doing so professionally. His next project “Gray State” is proving to be a vehicle of awakening across party and ideological lines, as this film chronicles what he believes will happen to our country if we don’t start listening to libertarians. David intends to use MSM entertainment to spread the message of liberty.
Dave Nalle is the national chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, the leading organization promoting a pro-liberty philosophy within the Republican Party. The RLC has been advocating libertarians to work within the GOP since it was founded in 1991, and has recently experienced an explosion in growth and support.
Am I missing something I should be promoting via this release?! And thank you to any and all who help make this happen!
In Liberty, Zak Carter
