Ron Paul at NY Rally for Sundwall!

February 24, 2009

I don’t have the date for the rally yet because I just dreamed it up. Eric Sundwall is an honest believer in Liberty. He has adopted Dr. Paul four unifying principles. A look at the Campaign for Liberty site only finds one post mentioning Eric Sundwall, and the first comment suggests that that post should not have been there. If the Campaign for Liberty is a mere lobbying group, I may need to rethink the name of our Ithaca Meetup group. As far as I know Dr. Paul is not prohibited from endorsing a candidate for congress. I also have heard nothing from Dr. Paul on this race. He could provide a huge boost for the Sundwall campaign and he needs to remember to support his supporters.

Now, let’s set a date for the rally.

Maybe Lew Rockwell has a good write-up of the Sundwall campaign…nope

20th Congressional District Map

February 21, 2009

Gerrymandering, what a concept. How about this, instead of petitioning to be on a ballot, every candidate should be required to walk the perimeter of their district.

Eric Sundwall has a map up of his district. You can find your NY district here.

The Next Ron Paul

February 12, 2009

It is quite possible that Eric Sundwall will be the next Dr. No. Eric is running for the 20th Congressional District in the upcoming special election with Ron Paul’s unifying message of peace, liberty and honest money. He has the support of many disenfranchised citizens not only from his district but from across New York and across America.

The people of this country are fully aware that their ‘so called’ representatives only represent the interest of the hogs at the trough. While the average American may be able to contribute a few bucks to a campaign, the big money comes from those who receive the bailout bucks (money stolen from the average worker). Take a look at the contributions to the Republicrats like Tedisco. H/T PoliticalClassDismissed

You can bet the political class will throw up plenty of hurdles to challenge an outsider. Eric Sundwall and his army of supports are up for the challenge. We are coming to take back Our government.

I need to read Mencken

February 11, 2009

Ripped from Lew Rockwell:

Wrote H.L. Mencken:
The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it.

Special Election to Replace Gillibrand

February 9, 2009

Great news from PoliticalClassDissmissed, Eric Sundwall will step up to challenge the status quo in the special election to replace Kirsten Gillibrand. Of course, the deck is stacked against any third party effort. While the Democrats and Republicans simply recede to their smoke filled rooms and reappear with their anointed candidates;
(as describe by the Daily Freeman)

Anyone who thinks a special election on short notice in a state as big as New York will be a democratic exercise hasn’t actually watched Empire State politics in action.

Case in point: the vacancy created in the 20th Congressional District by Gillibrand’s appointment.

With everyone expecting Paterson to start the 40-day clock ticking on a special election in that district, the county chairmen of the two major parties have convened. And what have they given the district? The Republicans anointed Jim Tedisco, a candidate who doesn’t even live in the district, and the Democrats introduced Scott Murphy, a candidate with lots of money who’s never held elective office and no one’s ever heard of. One of these two will win the election.

Mr Sundwall’s campaign will be forced to petition for ballot access. I believe the normal 6 week petitioning period is condensed for the special election to 12 days. As someone who has petitioned for ballot access, I can assure you this is a huge and unnecessary hurdle. I am confident that liberty lovers and Ron Paul supporters from around the state will converge to make the effort a great success.

The Daily Freeman opinion piece speaks liberally about democracy so I must insert the reminder that We the People secured for ourselves a republican form of government. To understand what a republic is please visit The Hubbardtown Patriot and read Martha Goodsell’s excellent description.
