Wednesday, June 6th, 2007

by Tom Kovach

It seems that President George W. Bush is working hard to help the Constitution Party these days, much as President Bill Clinton drove voters to the Republican Party in record numbers back in 1994.

Keyes’ organization RenewAmerica just sent out an email plugging a new “independent” group called “We Need Alan Keyes for President” that’s urging Keyes to run. I say “independent” because the group’s [...]

The Imperato News Network

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

I’ve been getting absolutely bombarded with these insane press releases from the Imperato campaign. Not less than 6 or 7 of them within the last week!

I wouldn’t mind so much, but some of it is just so out of this work that I can’t imagine why he’s bothering to write and distribute them at [...]

Last night Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul appeared on John Stewart’s Daily Show. You can watch here. Third parties were among the subjects discussed. The following is not a verbatim transcript, just my paraphrase for those who can’t access the video:

Closing out the Badnarik Campaign

(Sorry that you got this twice, the formatting failed in the original!)

Well, folks, it is almost over.

With a little negotiation and adjustments to be done, some re-filing of FEC reports, the last bills paid, and only a few thousand more in contributions to make that happen, I will be able to [...]

Third party? Extremely possible

Friday, June 1st, 2007

I thought this was a article worth noting, though it mainly addresses the major-party candidates.

Here’s a excerpt-

Party allegiance has hit its lowest tide since the birth of scientific polling. As many as a third of American voters now call themselves “independent.” Although most still tend to vote for one party’s ticket or the other, many [...]

Register-Herald article on Butch Paugh for West Virginia Governor

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Butch Paugh remembers the time one could buy a dozen hot dogs for a buck.

Now, the same dollar barely fetches a cup of coffee, minus the dog.

Which is one reason why the Nettie pastor [...]

LibertyMix Controversy…

Friday, June 1st, 2007

I just got this link sent to me anonymously via email…

http://libertymix.nfshost.com

Kind of harsh criticism… and I think the focus on Stephen Gordon is wrong. He hasn’t been involved in the project, as far as I’m aware, for quite a long time. As for Stephen VanDyke, well… it was probably a mistake to announce [...]
