Eric Gurr On The Record

- In 2008, in reference to the impending housing bubble burst, Gurr wrote, "I would also argue that a sizable dose of Keynesianism (deficit spending) is not out of the question, and historically cannot be seen as dangerous at this point."

- In 2008, Gurr wrote that "Social security payments must also be cut. A cut of 2.5% next year, and a subsequent cut of 2.5% the following year, coupled with a cut in the administrative overhead is the only way." In 2009, Gurr advocated that "Even social security checks need to be cut by 10%."

- In 2008, with respect to addressing the FDR social safety net, Gurr wrote that we needed to "Increase and maintain FDR's social safety net (sorry Ron Paul supporters, these are good things)."

- In 2008, Gurr identified protectionist policies as problematic, while in 2013 he advocated for tariffs on the automobile, plane, and electronics industries.

- In 2009, Gurr wrote, "The real lesson of history is that citizens who are not diligent in protecting their freedoms will lose those freedoms, and in many cases their lives. . .Before we begin the arguments of the future, we must fix the foundation." The next year, in 2010, Gurr donated to the Boehner campaign, long after Boehner co-sponsored NCLB and supported TARP.

- In 2009, Gurr wrote that we need to "Employ the use of massive violence against terrorists and their supporters."

I have typically agreed with you on many things and appreciate some of the other work that you do. I will be blunt: supporting gurr is borderline to supporting romney in the 2012 election. I do not understand your logic in your decision, I will urge you to reconsider your position. Did you even READ this main thread?

I do, however, want boehner DEFEATED.

Not gurr - but GRRRRRRRR

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Thank you for posting more info.

Who's left?

From what I know...

the last that I checked, the other 2 establishment candidates were invited to the meet the candidates forum but never showed. They also had not registered with the fec. Therefore, they are not considered in this race. It is between gurr and J.D. Winteregg.

More to come.

This is an evening bump for awareness, and to spread the word.

Good work. When I found J D's campaign page, he had a picture of him and Huckabee together.
Not saying he is the right or wrong guy, but sometimes there is no liberty candidate.

I hope Boehner loses, not trying too be a Debbie Downer.


J.D. and I were talking about that on the phone tonight. I told him no worries, I have one of me and Jim DeMint together that I wish was never taken!

J.D. is Liberty, there is no question about that.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Good. I believe you.

As long as you know everything I know and more, all is well. I was not bashing him, just raising something no one else has.

Go J.D!


You are free to contact me anytime, hit me up with a pm, we can always talk on the phone.
