RJ HARRIS 2010 for US Congress in Oklahoma’s 4th District!Submitted by RJHarris on Thu, 01/01/2009 - 23:33
Many of you have asked me lately, “now what do we do”? While Ron Paul lived up to every expectation in the recent presidential campaign, the fact remains that the ‘new world order crowd’ has retained control of our country for at least another 2-4 years. My response is “what would the founders do”? If our founders, who bled and died for this country, could see what has become of it, then they would call upon all of us to stand up and fight for freedom. They would demand that we steel our courage in the face of tyrants and redouble our efforts to restore our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness through property and sound money.
Our government allows the wanton slaughter of thousands of children per year in the name of…convenience. Our government spies on us, infringes upon our enumerated rights—even ones like the second amendment which clearly asserts that it cannot be infringed, infringes upon our un-enumerated rights protected by the ninth amendment, allows itself to do things and make laws which are not in the Constitution when that document clearly says that the federal governments power is specifically limited to only those things expressed within it, runs an empire that is neither moral nor constitutional, usurps our legitimate state governments with illegal and unfunded mandates, operates a prison and detention system that walks the ragged edge of due process, and chokes investment and entrepreneurialism with mountains of unnecessary regulation. Our government takes our property and gives it to other private parties for their own financial gain, taxes us near 65%, gives taxpayer money to failed or failing business, allows gross manipulation of the commodities markets, delegates its constitutional authority to create money and credit to private bankers—who provide neither unless and until it suits them to do so, and has forced the states to break the law by removing any form of gold and silver currency which the Constitution requires the states to use.
If you’re mad now, just wait a second on the pitch forks. What is going to make you even madder still is recalling that our party, the Republican Party, was supposed to stop this @#$% from happening! Yet despite handing them a majority in Congress for the first time in forty years, and control of the White House for the last eight, our party has out-spent the Democrats by a three to one margin and walked all over the Constitution and our liberty while they were doing it! No wonder it only took us only fourteen years to lose what it took forty to gain and no wonder we got shellacked in the last national elections! Boy oh boy wouldn’t it be easy to start pointing fingers right about now…SO I WILL!
Many have counseled me lately that we (Ron Paul Republican Leaders) need to walk gingerly with the “old guard” Republicans or the neo-cons as Ron Paul calls them…well I could not disagree more! They are the ones that gave us the worst election performance in the history of our party and we need not coddle them for that! The neo-conservatives promised us a “more compassionate conservativism.” What we got was liberalism, socialism, and—dare I say it—fascism; all with new and improved labels.
So if it’s not time yet to riot in the streets what is it time for? Our founders provided the example that we must follow to correct all of this. When they struggled against King Georges’ “long train of abuse[s]” they did not fire the first shot; the British did that at Lexington. No, our founders worked through their legitimately elected and legally seated colonial legislatures to plead with the King and in so doing they retained the moral authority for self defense when war became inevitable. Likewise, we must take back our state legislatures by electing (and all that that word entails IE not just voting for but helping get elected) representatives that will demand federal compliance with the Constitution and a halt to all illegal federal spending and taxation. We must elect federal representatives who will swear an oath not to spend one more dime than the Constitution would allow them too and will further swear to stop delegations of congressional authority. We need to elect congresspersons with the courage to take back our monetary system from the private bankers the way President Jackson did! We need to elect a President who will promise not to take us into war without the constitutionally required Congressional Declaration of War! That document clearly limits the aggressive negotiating powers of the President to engagements that the Navy and Marine Corps can handle—without appropriating additional funds or calling up the Army (AirForce). This is not just RJ Harris talking here, the US Supreme Court has said, on numerous occasions, that the States and the ballot boxes are suppose to be the check and balance against federal power, not Shay and his band of well meaning malcontents.
We need to send a message to the people of Oklahoma that we will not be “bi-partisan” with their lives, liberty, and prosperity any longer. Our freedom is not up for exchange for “security” regardless of the label placed before that word and we need to start supporting and electing people who understand that and will vote that way on our behalf. To this end, I announce to all of you that I am challenging Tom Cole; the Republican neo-con, and voter for the $700B failed Wall Street bail-out, for Oklahoma’s Forth District Congressional Seat. I am a Ron Paul Republican and I am not ashamed to say that “out loud.” I am not a “go along to get along Republican.” I am an American, ready to fight for my freedom and liberty and Oklahoma’s sovereignty. Social issues are important, but we need not be squabbling over them while our liberty and Oklahoma’s sovereignty are under attack from our own central government and the socialist- fascist- liberals who are currently running it! YES, that tag line includes some in the Republican Party; I am ashamed to have to say. Now we can cry about that, and the party’s performance in the last election, or we can draw a line in the sand and say to the “neo-cons” ‘this far have you high-jacked the party of Lincoln BUT NO FARTHER.’ The neo-cons have proven that they will not defend our liberty unless we agree with their social agenda so it’s time to move ahead with phase II of the R3VOLution and take back OUR party!

PS: Over the next several weeks, you will no doubt see this message repeated on Ron Paul Blogs all over the net and in our Meet-Ups. While we all know what great exposure that will be, one of the fist things we have to do to prove the viability of this candidacy is raise enough money to get a professional website up and running. To affect this task we have opened an account with the Republic Bank and Trust of Norman Ok. This campaign will NEVER solicit donations from any entity that cannot vote. When I am elected, Oklahomans will have representation; “entities” will not. If Ron Paul wouldn’t vote for it, neither will RJ Harris! Please send donations for building our website to;

Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in an election cycle. Please remember to include these things with your donations as well as your email address so we can send you regular updates on how the campaign is doing.
PSS: We will need Volunteers as well. Kaye Beach is your campaign manager. If you are ready to fight for your freedom, get with her to find out how you can help get a Ron Paul Republican from Oklahoma elected to the US Congress. Ladyaxiom@yahoo.com
PSSS: Kaye has been working herself to death on this Sovereignty Symposium scheduled for Jan 3rd at Character First Convention Center in OK City. Please get hold of her—today if possible—to let her know if you will be able to help set up or attend the event. She has lined up some really great champions of liberty to speak to us about legislation you can support this session to protect our liberty and Oklahoma’s sovereignty. I will MC the event and make a formal announcement of my candidacy at that time.
