Bob Barr: Media Superstar

The Barr Campaign has managed to achieve an amazing amount of media coverage that really continues to bring our movement to the mainstream media. Please check out his site @ bobbarr2008.com and support his continued efforts.

Bob Barr Unfazed: The Washington Times

The Washington times just recently released a great article on Bob Barr. Here it is:

Former Rep. Bob Barr says a number of Republicans have been trying to persuade him not to run for president on the Libertarian Party ticket, but none has given him a convincing reason.

…Mr. Barr says even people who have tried to dissuade him understand why he thinks it important to raise issues from what he calls a “genuinely conservative” perspective and to offer alternatives to the positions of the two major-party candidates.

“In the month since we formed our exploratory committee, not a single Republican who has spoken with me to try and convince me not to seek the Libertarian nomination has disagreed with my reasons for considering a run,” Mr. Barr told The Times today in an e-mail exchange before leaving London on a flight to Atlanta.

Most Republicans who asked him not to run “also said they understand why I’d run and why John McCain is not conservative and will not seriously tackle the growth in government power and spending,” he said. “Some said they would vote for me if I ran, but for the sake of the Republican Party, they would prefer I didn’t.”

Mr. Barr will be speaking tomorrow at the National Press Club, I am personally going to be attending - should be very interesting to see his final decision.

Update on McCain’s FEC woes

Senator McCain’s possible FEC violations were previously blogged about here- McCain snared in his own FEC trap?

The New York Times, reports that it appears President Bush may be attempting to come to McCain’s rescue by announcing three nominees for the FEC agency. If they are confirmed, this would give the commission the quorum they need to vote and decide whether McCain has been released from the matching funds program or not.

A Message from William Lawson

This video perfectly illustrates why he won his election with such a large margin. Looking forward to a hard fought win in November!!

Bob Barr to Hold Major Press Conference

I just spoke with my source from the Bob Barr 08 campaign, and they say it is highly likely Bob will discuss the upcoming Convention and his potential candidacy on Monday. Looks like Mr. Barr will be making his final decision over the weekend while he enjoys his time in Europe after the recent debate. Looking forward to an official campaign here!!

Personally, I don’t think that it hurt him all that much by waiting, he obviously has a high chance of winning the nomination.  That means a serious impact on ones life - especially if you are running to win, which it seems a few of these candidates aren’t taking seriously. Through my work with the Ron Paul campaign, I certainly saw what even a few months of “campaign time” can do to ones ‘regular’ work & family life.

William Lawson GOP Nominee for Congress!

Congratulations to Dr. Lawson! Lets all donate $5 dollars to his campaign to jump start them into the General Election. Lets also remember all of the people that have worked so hard and volunteered their time to help Dr. Lawson have such a strong showing in NC. With more money, Dr. Law will be able to hire these dedicated people as full time staff to make our General Election dreams come true.

We must remember that this is not just a fight for North Carolinians! Our country would benefit enormously from having 2 good Doctors on the House Floor - fighting for our rights - fighting for people who do not even realize they are being fought for.

“Ron Paul Jr.” Grasps Early Lead

Our very own William “BJ” Lawson, dubbed “Ron Paul Jr.” by his opponent, appears to have a 2.5 to 1 lead over Augustus Cho in early polling. This might be early, but he has held this lead since the polls have begun reporting. We at United Liberty want to congratulate Dr. Lawson on a well fought Primary and wish him the best as he begins his campaign against the incumbent, David Price. We will keep you posted!

Housing Bailout Cheats the Smart Poor

My fiance and I save our money diligently, and because we live in California, we have opted to not buy a house until we are very ready. “Ready” meaning we have close to 1/3rd of the cash on hand to help us get a low monthly payment that will last throughout the mortgage.

There are millions of people who make the choice to rent throughout America, a safe choice where they can minimize their financial risk and leverage a certain portion of constant savings to make an eventual investment they can be proud of, and secure in.

These hard working, financially responsible American’s are now being told they went about it the wrong way. The Nanny State is here to bail you out.
