Majority Leader Steny Hoyer in fight of his life vs Ron Paul Republican!!! Update #2!

If you’re looking for the biggest bang for your buck in the July 4 Freedomslate08.com moneybomb, look no further than Maryland’s 5th district where Ron Paul Republican Collins Bailey (http://www.baileyforuscongress.com/) is poised to dethrone House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. This will be “the political shot heard round the world”. Fantasy? Hardly. Following are 12 reasons why it’s likely to happen and why Mr. Bailey deserves your support:

1. If there ever were a time when there was no advantage to being Majority Leader, it would be this year. This is the lowest rated Congress in US history – approval ratings continue to languish in the low teens. Now with the economy tanking, inflation raging out of control and gas prices sky rocketing, you can bet that the Majority Leader will take an enormous amount of the blame – as he should.

2. As someone who has personally campaigned for Mr. Bailey for 6 solid months, I have been stunned to discover the overwhelming disgust for the job done by Hoyer. I was fully prepared to find high percentages of district residents who wanted to hold onto the power that comes from having the Majority Leader reside in their district. I am absolutely amazed that only about 1 in 10 people have expressed this opinion. The voters have had enough of politics as usual and are fervently upset with the incumbents.

3. Hoyer is vulnerable for other reasons. He is perceived (and rightly so) by many to have done nothing positive about the war or the economy. Instead, he is constantly politically posturing. Voters around here have had it with excuse making politicians.

4. Hoyer has made a lot of noise about how he has brought back enormous “goodies” to the district. Little does he know, however, that we have the “goods” on him. An extremely large percentage of his earmarks have gone to districts across the country – not surprisingly to large campaign donors. We’ve got plans to make this very public knowledge.

5. Hoyer made a huge political blunder last year on the vote to end welfare benefits to illegal immigrants. Thinking that he could break House rules and then twist arms behind close doors to forge a tie vote and thus kill the bill, he was caught on video doing so. The ensuing fallout had Hoyer testifying before the House Ethics Select Committee about his alleged wrongdoing, all of which was recently televised on C-Span. The whole disgusting episode can be seen and read here ... http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=26460. Up to now this event, which would doom Hoyer if it became public knowledge, has been kept quiet. But we have an “October Surprise” for Steny to plaster this sordid affair all over the media.

6. A far left liberal group has targeted Hoyer (yes, you read that right – a far LEFT group) for his vote to absolve telephone companies from any wrongdoing after they allowed illegal government wiretapping to proceed for years. The group, Firedoglake.com, took out a FULL-PAGE AD in the Washington Post this past weekend to admonish Hoyer and reportedly have collected $320,000 dollars to continue their campaign against the Majority Leader. They are also sending out a robo-call to the entire district alerting constituents of his vote, which can be viewed here … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1f0FTBPPeIg. This group is in no way associated with our campaign, so we have no access to that enormous sum of money, but it is extremely telling how vulnerable Hoyer is.

7. At a campaign speech this very evening, a former FUNDRAISER for Congressman Hoyer approached Collins Bailey and told him he has his vote this election. When Collins asked him why, he told Mr. Bailey that he could no longer stand by and watch Hoyer continue to neglect average Americans. Hoyer arrogantly told him he’s only interested in doing things to get re-elected and would concern himself with helping average Americans at some undetermined future date.

8. The Collins Bailey campaign volunteers have been working tirelessly to schedule debates between Bailey and Hoyer. We believe we hit the jackpot this past weekend. We have gotten a local college professor to agree to sponsor the debates, and hope to add two high school civics teachers to the sponsorship team (the same two teachers that allowed me to speak to their classes earlier this winter about Ron Paul which I wrote about on this forum months ago ... http://www.dailypaul.com/node/26993 ). Having three local teachers sponsor the debates will make it political hazardous for Hoyer to skip out on them. Even if he does not show, the debates will go on with someone standing in for Hoyer. This will give Bailey enormous exposure in front of potentially hundreds of students and their families. We are even working on getting local TV coverage.

9. Bailey is as squeaky clean as they come. There are absolutely no skeletons in this wonderful man’s closet. He has been married for 33 years, home-schooled four children, has been elected four times in a liberal district to the school board, and is a God fearing man who spends every Sunday morning giving an impromptu Christian service in a juvenile detention center.

10. Collins Bailey is an absolutely magical campaigner. He is able to convert nearly everyone he speaks with, regardless of political affiliation. In addition, he has worked tirelessly to recruit and help other candidates across the nation. In Maryland he encouraged four other Ron Paul Republicans to run for Congress in four of Maryland’s other seven districts. All four of them won their primaries, and three of the four are on the list of freedom candidates on http://www.Freedomslate08.com (Mike Hargadon, Rich Matthews, and Peter James), giving Maryland undisputed top billing on the Freedomslate list. This simply would not have happened without Collins Bailey.

11. Our campaign staff, which is completely composed of volunteers, keeps growing daily and is loaded with energetic young kids with great ideas and technological know how. We are planning a blitz of campaign ads that will blow your socks off. These ads will make the most finicky Ron Paul supporter proud.

12. You simply won’t find a better man than Collins Bailey. When you google “salt of the earth” his picture comes up - truly a down home genuine gentleman whose wisdom constantly astounds me. Listen for yourself – he was one of the very first ones interviewed by Freedomslate for the RP Republican candidate moneybomb … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHXY_-Aodik.

All that is needed to help us record this stunning upset is a small number of donations to put us over the top. The donations are mainly to get our ads televised. We will totally produce them ourselves. Trust me, it would be a crime if these ads never get aired because we lack the funds. Please help us make history and strike an ENORMOUS chord for the Ron Paul Revolution. Thank you all so much.

Let's send a message to Washington!

Can you think of a more profound impact than to unseat the Majority Leader?

This is race is definitley worth the fight!!!

Collins Bailey is Ron Paul Endorsed

Thanks so much for posting this! Collins will make a great Congressman. The 5th District really needs him.

However, there is one important thing missing from your post: Ron Paul has endorsed Collins Bailey's congressional run.

I'll make sure to spread your post around with credit and a link (of course)

It's really important to get the word out!!

Steny Hoyer has acted unconstitutionally and violated our rights. Congress represents the people and as such they must be held accountable for their actions when they fail to do so. When they fail to represent us, they must be voted out. That is the only way to send a message to them. That is the only way they will listen.

Steny, you're on your way out :)

Thank you ingrid, for correcting ...

... that oversight on my part. And thanks for spreading the post around. Today could be our finest hour. Mount up everyone and ride to the sound of the guns!!

I just spoke to Collins and he tells me that the website handling his donations is unable to report any donation real time. Unfortunately this means that the FreedomSlate website will list his donation total as $0 for the entire day. He assures me, however, that the donations are coming in as several who have donated have talked to him today (including me). Therefore, please don't let the $0 donation total listed on that site discourage you. Thanks once again.

We desperately need to have support in the House and Senate!

These races are SO important for us!

Bailey for Congress!

I have met Collins a number of times and he is very much deserving of our support. Hoyer raised $2.7 million (!) in the first quarter for re-election. This would be a David & Goliath story for LIBERTY if Collins wins! Donate today as part of the July 4th moneybomb ... http://www.freedomslate08.com/


I live in northern md. and haven't heard about him. Although, northern md. and the d.c. burbs might as well be different states altogether.
Good work, and I will be donating....probably today! Three cheers for freedom!

What district are you from in N. MD? You might ...

... very well have a RP Republican running in your district. Collins had a huge hand in recruiting freedom candidates in 5 of Maryland's 8 eight Congressional districts, 4 of whom are included on the Freeomslate08 moneybomb list!

Thank you all for your kind words

Please, please consider donating to this wonderful man's campaign today. There is simply no other race in the country that would ring the bell of the Revolution louder than if a RP Republican dethroned the Majority Leader of Congress. I hope I have convinced you all of the absolute reality of it happening. The only thing between us and victory is a few lousy worthless federal reserve notes.

Mount up everybody and ride to the sound of the guns!!!

Not only is he the real deal politically ...

... but he is one of the nicest persons you'll ever meet. He is very well known in his county due to his 13 years on the county school board (no small feat being a conservative Republican in an extremely liberal county) and is liked by nearly everyone who knows him, even those with opposing political viewpoints. His charm totally disarms his harshest critics.

So you are right more than you know - Collins Bailey is truly the real deal. Please support him in today's moneybomb ... http://www.freedomslate08.com/. Thank you, and God Bless you all. Happy INDEPENDENCE DAY to everyone!!!
