Liberty candidate to challenge Cantor in Va?

It looks as if there is a candidate worth keeping an eye on in VA. Peter Greenwald is looking to challenge Eric Cantor for the VA-7th district. I just stumbled on his webpage when he followed me on Twitter, but his platform looks promising... much better than Cantor. Some of the things that caught my eye were mentions of abolishing the IRS and DOE, repeal of Obamacare, term limits, strong support for the 2A and blasting Cantor for raising the debt limit. Not on his website was his position on the Fed. I asked him via Twitter and he supports Rand's audit the Fed bill and as has read Ron Paul's book 'End The Fed'. He has 25 years in the Navy and his first "pillar" in his National Security platform is "paying down our debt." The web page looks to be under construction and does not elaborate much further but this guy seems to be on the right track. A good challenge to Cantor and the GOP establishment is much needed in VA. I'm not giving a full endorsement yet but it would be nice to watch Cantor squirm.

Check out his webpage http://www.greenwaldforcongress.com any feedback or insight would be great.
Thanks,
Mat Blankenship

While GOP establishment

hacks like Cantor and Boehner are licking their chops about winning bigin the mid-terms, it would be great to unseat them in the process. Guess we will find out how awake people are because both are being challenged.

Wow, he must really like Mark Levin

In his "recommended reading" section, he has the Bible first, and then any book written by Mark Levin second.

Would have liked to see some kind of non-keynesian literature or some kind of liberty literature.

Found it interesting in light of recent Mark Levin vs Tom Woods bru-haha (I don't follow it closely but see various DP posts and tweets.

Maybe you could

recommend some books to him.

I asked him via Twitter about the Fed

He said he would support Rand's Audit the Fed bill and that he has read End The Fed. I'm not 100% on him yet but he seems much better than Cantor. There is another guy running who seems stronger on the econ side but I haven't heard much from either one. Here is a link for David Brat.

Good work Matt!

He needs help getting on the Ballot, from his website:

WELCOME to my website! Please spend some time getting to know me and my stand on the important issues that face America. Then leave me a note, ask a question, make a contribution or volunteer. In order to challenge Eric Cantor for the Republican nomination to represent the 7th Congressional District, I need to collect a minimum of 1000 signatures of registered voters and raise the $3870 filing fee. You can send me a personal e-mail at greenwald4congress@reagan.com. Together, WE THE PEOPLE can restore our American Republic.

From his Twitter

It looks like he is ar almost 20% of the signatures he needs in just a few days. I think the deadline is March so we may have time.

I hope he gets twice as many as he needs.

Cantor may challenge his signatures, there are always some bad ones.

Yea. Me too.

Cantor and the GOP establishment will pull out the usual dirty tricks if they feel someone is a threat.
