My Announcement to Run for U.S. Congress, Michigan's 10th District

Over a week ago, I announced on my show Liberty Cap Talk Live with Todd Andrew Barnett: The Special Edition Show that I would be running for Congress this year and in 2010, contesting Congresswoman Candice Miller's seat in my distict. (Miller is a conservative, warmongering dye-in-the-wool Republican who supports the War on Terror, the War on Immigration, the War in Iraq, and a foreign policy of interventionism.)

I also announced that I am running on the Libertarian Party ticket, so I expect to provide a unique campaign unlike past Libertarian candidacies. I also intend to be quite different from the collectivistic, statist Republican and Democratic congressional candidates at large as well.

While I don't have an official congressional website up and running yet, I am working on it. It should be up and running in a few days.

I have already outlined my five (originally four) main platform points, which include the following:

  • End the War in Iraq and our Foreign Policy of Interventionism

  • Restore Our Free Market Economy

  • Ending the War on Terror and Restoring Civil Liberties

  • Restoring Free Immigration and Free Trade

  • Restoring Sound Money and Fiscal Responsibility

If anyone has any questions for me, please email me at your leisure.
