2014 Liberty Candidate Thread

Link this post out to all of your Twitter, Facebook, email, etc lists that are fans of liberty. This forum is open for anyone to see. This is our chance to re-establish liberty through the people

WEBSITE: http://candidates4liberty.com/home.html

All,
We need to start consolidating and getting ahead of our competition to support our candidates for 2014. I have started a list of Ron Paul Republicans, Libertarians, Constitutionalists and fellow travelers to donate, support, campaign, or do whatever you want to help with. Please add or make suggestions and I will update. Let's keep this thing going!!

I realize some people won't like the non-purity of the fellow travelers, but some people will want to support them over the alternative. Also, I'm just doing this as a way to consolidate the candidates and info into one location. You may think that x or y doesn't have a chance, or maybe it's strategically better to support z. That's awesome, but not my intention with this thread. I want to identify the BEST candidates for each seat and hopefully we have a someone in every race.

FELLOW TRAVELERS:
Question: What is a Fellow Traveler?
Answer: It is, in the author of this thread's opinion, someone who displays most of the traits of adherence to the Constitution, civil liberties (in a libertarian way), and strong fiscal conservatism, but not at the 90% and up range. This is done through a view of the person's issue statements and voting record, but is subjective in nature and thus should be validated by the person who is considering providing support. This is an organizational tool, not a panacea. Please provide feedback in the comments if I have made an oversight.

Stuart Spitzer won the

Stuart Spitzer won the Republican Primary for TX HD 4, against incumbent Lance Gooden. he is solid by all accounts I have heard, and his issues look great. His only remaining opponent is a LP candidate. Stuar is helping T.J Fabby out now. So we had another Liberty Candidate Victory! Now he just needs to vote the right way next year :)

I hope all of our victors stay true.

Yes, it is a swing district.

Why it is swing, Congressman "Tea-party Mike" Kelly (R) won this district as well.

Greg has a good chance if we can organize efficiently, which we are working on.

Karl Tatgenhorst for Indiana Secretary of State

as well as others listed here

http://lpin.org/2014/04/28/tatgenhorst-tapped-to-lead-lpin-c...

Secretary of State race is the most important for the Libertarian Party because it determines the status of the party for the following four years. 2% gets us automatic ballot access for all levels in the general elections, 10% qualifies the LP for state paid primaries. In 2010, the LP got about 6%.

I'll be happy to add libertarians if they meet our criteria

but we are prioritizing people who will be in a primary soon. The name is on our screening list though:)

Alright

I spent some time this weekend breaking it down by state to make it easier to decipher. I will update the formatting in a few days.

1. What do you think?

2. Please use this info and spread the word about candidates.

3. Help me find more, especially in your area or state.

Organizing this information by State

Personally, I find it A LOT easier to sort through these lists when organized by state, and then by race.

I know this had to be quite a project for you, so thank you for your efforts here.

No problem

I will probably update my website soon to have state specific links too. Maybe next weekend. Whatever gets people to spread the word about liberty candidates and get some of the statists out of office makes it worth the effort.

Tom Petri

I live in Tom Petri's Congressional District. He's actually the Representative for WI-6, not WI-5.

Since Petri is supposedly retiring now (FINALLY!!!), I'll keep an eye out for any and all candidates who hope to replace him, and if any seem worth our attention, I'll let you know.

Thanks Dave!

I could never do this without the help of good liberty people!

I looked into the State

I looked into the State Legislator who said the Bundy situation reminded her of Tiananmen Square. Her name is Kelly Townsend. between what I was able to find of her voting record. And what I found on her Platform page, she looks pretty good to me (and I am not just talking about her physical looks). But I might be missing something.
