Jesus Farking Christ. This is why as an INdependent, I'm swimming in circles here... I don't support the Dems 100%, and up until a few years ago, I was able to rely on at least a few Republicans being sane enough to support(To a point), now there isn't a single sane one that I've heard of in the last 4 or 5 years, with the exception of Jon Huntsman, and lok where it got THAT poor motherfarker.

Holy Christ, I want all of the young 20-ish 'Pubs to just enter politics NOW. I have the feeling that a large part of the assholishness and crazy of the current bunch of loons will die off with their political careers.

Seriously, 'Crazier is better' should NOT be a campaign farking slogan. Grow up and act like the leaders people elected you to be. Enough of this childish bullshiat, people rely on you to govern the country, not play fort in your office and declare your desk area its own sovereign nation.

If you ever worked in a state hospital for the mentally challenged, you would find the place is full of people who really believe they're Napoleon, or whatever. Being sincere doesn't mean you aren't fruity as a nutcake.

Hello everyone, my name is Randi Shannon, and I have been honored to be Iowa's Republican Candidate
for The Office of State Senator in District 34. The support I have received from so many in this district
has been just incredible! I will never forget your commitment to my campaign!

I want to especially thank my fellow Ron Paul for President Supporters, My Fellow Members of Liberty,
My Friends who home school as did I, the many Pro-Life Members who have been so supportive of my
candidacy over these past few months, and of course all my supporters in the Republican Party who have
offered me so much help and encouragement, including many Republican Office holders here in Iowa, I
promise you, your efforts on My behalf will be remembered.

Let me now announce to everyone in Iowa, I have become aware of the existence of the Original Republic
for The United States of America."We the People" re-inhabited our lawful de jure (de jur- "by right of
lawful establishment") government on March 30th
, 2010. This is The Republic founded in 1787 and then
abandoned during The Civil War in the 1860s.

It was then replaced in 1871 by the UNITED STATES CORPORATION. (de facto-without law). This
Unlawful Corporate Democracy, established by the forty-first congress, has been acting as though it is the
"official government" which clearly it is not! In point of fact, it is the reason why "We the People" Instead
of Experiencing Freedom and Prosperity, suffer under the weight of Oppressive Statutes and an Out of
Control, Monstrous National Debt which is Robbing Us and All Future Generations of Americans of Our
Treasure and Our Legacy for which Our Founding Fathers' so Valiantly Fought and Died.

And Remember This! Where the de jure Republic of The United States of America exists the de facto
UNITED STATES CORPORATION, having no standing, must go away!

Now, knowing this, and with the best interests of The People of Iowa District 34 uppermost in my heart
and out of respect for my own conscience, I am here to announce that I am ending my campaign as of this
July 4th
, 2012. Trust me this story does not end here nor does my commitment. In fact, my level of service
to the good people of Iowa who have been so supportive of me and my campaign will be greatly increased.
Please allow me to continue, because I have some great news to share with all of you!

[page 2]

I have learned from my participation in campaigns that no matter who we elect, there's no positive change.
The same talking points are used; "lower taxes, education reform, we need to end BIG GOVERNMENT
PORK etc". We cast our votes, and for the most part, we are no better off. Our taxes go up and while we
are losing our liberties in the name of security, our country becomes more divided. New executive orders
are issued, BIG GOVERNMENT INTRUSION into our private lives is on the rise and the Peoples'
despair grows and deepens. What Hope is there for any solutions from THE UNITED STATES
CORPORATION?

In fact, that which happens is all too often nothing like what's been promised. I know you feel very
disaffected as I've heard this from so many of you with whom I've visited with these past several months.
I want you to know I feel the same! Unfortunately despair is rampant in our country today and with good
reason!

Over the past several decades the quality of life for The People of Iowa has been eroding. Our individual
earnings have dropped, we have skyrocketing inflation, our public education system is a disaster, and
THIS BLOATED GOVERNMENT we cannot afford just keeps on growing.

American Entrepreneurism is all but dead. If the needs of "We the People" were being properly addressed,
THE UNITED STATES CORPORATION would have brought about changes that would have led to a
vast and growing economy with prosperity for all who want it. Therefore, The American Dream in Iowa
and all over this country would be alive and well and Our Succeeding Generations would truly be better
off as a result.

Instead, ours is an economically weak nation with the dollar on the very brink of collapse! We now find
corruption at virtually every level of government and hardly ever is anyone made to answer for it. Just like
Eric Holder, they refuse to answer and often as not they are rewarded. Where's the law? and Public
Accountability?

This Corrupt System is just like an out of control freight train heading at full speed toward the river where
the bridge has been washed out by a flood brought on by their own acts in violation of the Public Trust,
and their Oaths to The Constitution of Iowa and The Republic of The United States of America.

Remember, THE UNITED STATES CORPORATION was changed from The Republic, and since
then, we have seen a plethora of Statutes passed as if they were Law without the consent of "We the
People". With the abandonment of The Republic, and especially following 1871, the abuses of the
UNITED STATES CORPORATION heaped upon the American People and the Peoples of the
International Community have been inestimable and unconscionable. In this, I cannot and will not have
a share!

From the President on down, many of these so-called servants of the The People have repeatedly violated
their oaths of Office, their fiduciary responsibilities, and in every way imaginable they've committed the
most
egregious acts against "We the People" of the United States of America and People around the world.
They have continually violated the People's Trust. Be fooled no longer, that Trust is broken beyond repair!

[page 3]

Therefore, in order to affect the most good on behalf of The People of Iowa's 34th
District and in keeping
with my conscience, I have accepted the position of U.S. Senator in The Republic of The United States of
America, where I may better serve You and All of The People of Iowa. I want you to know I have taken
an Oath to Uphold, Support and Defend The Constitution of The United States of America. This I will
do to the best of my ability, So Help Me God.

As Your Senator from Iowa in The Republic of The United States of America I will be especially focused
on the following areas:

[First] As someone who home schooled my kids has been Committed to and Achieved Educational
Excellence for my own family, I whole heartedly support and will work with my Colleagues in The
Republic Congress who plan to eliminate the Department of Education when it transfers to The Republic
from THE BANKRUPT UNITED STATES CORPORATION. Educational Excellence first and
foremost is the result of personal commitment; first by parents, and then by the students themselves. We
don't need to spend more on education to achieve better results; just note how the opposite has proven to
be true. Point of Fact, Home Schooling, which costs taxpayers nothing, often accomplishes the best result!
However, not everyone can or may want to make this choice for their family and may see advantages to
Community, Private, Charter, Internet and/or Televised School systems. If we are truly dedicated in our
quest for Educational Excellence, then we need free market competition in the area of education, and we
need to leave it to families and their students in Iowa and in Our Republic to make the choices that best
serve them and meet their needs. This reflects my commitment to you, and on this I will not waver!

[Second] I am absolutely committed to our men and women in uniform who serve our country, and for
them that means "No More Undeclared Wars"! Their Blood is Too Precious to be spilled needlessly in far
away countries where there is no threat to Our Republic. The Lives of our service men and women are of
Such Exceeding Value as not be lost or even put at risk for the enrichment of those who profit as a result of
war and so called Nation Building-Police Actions. As your Senator in The Republic of The United States
of America, I will never vote for or in any other way support such actions! I am Bound by My Oath to The
Constitution of Republic of The United States of America which places limits upon me, while I serve in
office, and I appreciate these limits as lawful and necessary in the performance of my duty to The People
of Iowa. I want you to know, I Take My Oath Very Seriously!

[Third] As Your Senator in The Republic of United States of America, Our Unalienable Rights Shall be
protected, and First Among These "Life" shall be protected from the "Moment of Conception On". I refer
everyone to "The Republic for Iowa-Life Affirming Proclamation" a copy of which I can provide by email.
This Proclamation has My Endorsement and My Vote!

[Forth] Every concern which The People of Iowa have regarding GOVERNMENTAL ABUSE, such as
the high cost and unconstitutionality of Obama-care and current healthcare costs, the invasive, insufferable
acts committed by the TSAs at Airports, Taxation at Obscene levels, and the list goes on and on, are all
problems brought on by The "de facto" UNITED STATES CORPORATION.

[Page 4]

By serving as your Senator in The Republic Congress, I am restrained to voting in line with Our Republic
for The United States Constitution, which by the way does not contain the 14th
Amendment or any
thereafter as these are the product of "The De facto" UNITED STATES CORPORATION, and have no
basis in Our Constitution. Therefore, "they are Their Problems" and when you join The Republic of The
United States of America, they are no longer your problems! And as your Senator, I Proclaim here today
that I am determined that "Their Problems" will never again become your problems in The Republic!

Again, Remember, where the de jure Republic of The United States of America exists the de facto
UNITED STATES CORPORATION, having no standing, must go away!

I want you to know how very much I look forward to serving you and all of The People of Iowa as your
United States Senator in The Republic of The United States of America, which truly is One Nation,
Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All!

For those of you having difficulty understanding the reasons for my decision, I want to refer you to the
websites and .

I thank you so very much for your thoughtful attention! And I look forward to addressing your concerns in
Our Republic of The United States Congress!


In Faithful Service to The People of Iowa,

Well that's good.

Natural cures and incredible healing technologies released to the public that have long been suppressed.

I bet the liberal media didn't want us to know about them!

New energy technologies that have been suppressed will be released including technology that produces energy directly out of the air (sounds like Tesla) as well as Maglev trains that can go 1000 mpg from coast to coast.

Wow, 1000 miles per gallon from a maglev? That's like... what's infinity divided by a thousand? Must be a lot. That's a lot more efficient than all those infinite miles to the gallon maglevs out there now!

HAARP will be taken away from the corporation that runs it and put back under our control and only used for national defense purposes.

Oh sweet, we're finally going to use HAARP to send earthquakes to Iran instead of California!

No Driver Licenses required for individuals. You will get an ID card from the Republic. You won't need car insurance, instead as a member of the Republic you will be able to buy a $1,000,000 bond for about $300 a year. If you get into an accident, the Republic will pay for the damage to your vehicle and other car.

Also 'oh sweet', because I always hated buying a 1,000,000 liability bond for about $600 a year from a private corporation. Now I can buy it from the non-corporate corporate Republic! It's not insurance because it's a 'bond', you see.

Out of curiosity I was trying to find out how the government became invalid in 1871. Apparently she thinks the 14th Amendment is unconstitutional (of course, by the very definition of a constitutional amendment it cannot be) was enacted then (rather than 1868). And that the "incorporation clause" that was designed to make the Bill of Rights apply to state governments, as well the Federal government, means the Federal Government became a corporation (rather than a government) and was therefore no longer valid.

Dr. Whoof: Bonzo_1116: Dang, they craaaaazy.

I often wonder about the family member or friend of these folks who is actually not insane, and how they cope when these folks are around and herpin' their derp all over the place. How do they make it through Thanksgiving dinner, for example? Just nod and smile? Avoid talk of it completely? Do they ever look into having the folks committed?

Just wondering what it's like on the terminal limit of such a black hole of derp.


They go to their mother-in-law's thanksgiving dinner, because the homegrown derp is too much. Sometimes the herping from other families is entertaining because it's new and fresh bull-hockey.

She's not good looking enough to be that crazy.

Now this "United States Corporation" thing is a whole new facet of Libertarian whackjobbery. I would have thought these people would have been happy with their Sovereign Citizen bull-pucky.

Dusk-You-n-Me: Link


That rabbit hole links to Wonderland (clicketly poppo!) wherein you get to do 6 impossible things before breakfast, including but not limited to:

•End tax prosecutions for resisting the transfer of private wealth to such as I.R.S. (former Puerto Rico Bureau of Taxation).
•Issue orders to the military and police powers to enforce the Peoples' divine rights of birth.
•Instantly end all non-consensual and unlawful taxation including all taxes on the sacred rights of labor and privacy.
•End the perversion of marriage into a commercial system of state-issued privileges through the so-called "marriage license" whereby incorporated "courts" presume the "right" to trespass on families and kidnap children.


Dang, they craaaaazy.

Anenu: Sometimes I lose hope in humanity, occasionally I gain respect for individuals, commonly I see people acting short shortsighted or selfishly, this article just made me laugh.


"Sometimes you just have to bow to the absurd." The trick is to do that enough that you don't take a rifle up a school tower, but not so much that they lock you away in a padded room.

GOP: You are a party of crazy people!!

Dear sane conservatives, your party has been taken over by crazy people. This will not change until they lose an election very bad. Please think about either joining the Democrats or voting third party and stop giving these nut balls a platform.

In college I had a classmate nicknamed The Prince of Menage a Trois. Suddenly, I feel strongly that he should, at the very least, serve as an ambassador of some sort for the great Republic of the united states of america.

serial_crusher: You need to mention that she's a Republican in the headline, subby.
Rule of thumb is that if a negative headline references a "politician" without specifying a party affiliation, it means they're a Democrat.


The headline proves you wrong.

Iowa state Senate candidate Randi Shannon (R) "has ended her campaign and instead declared herself a U.S. Senator for the state of Iowa," the Des Moines Register reports.

What's that thing they call it when you know how something's going to turn out before you see it?

...you know, whatchamacallit...

...decades of empirical observation-based evidence about behavioural patterns and statistical probabilities.

That's it; that's what I was looking for.

abb3w: And it seems she's also a Ron Paul fan and a homeschooler. She appears associated with the Liberty Candidate movement, who appear to be a faction who don't like the Neocon elements in the main Tea Party; I'm not sure if they'd properly consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement, or not.

But wow, whadda whackjob.


I love these tidbits from your links:
LibertyCandidates.com is a not-for-profit* non-partisan organization
*Unofficially not-for-profit: we make no profit from any donations that go to candidates. If you'd like to support the site and our mission, please consider a donation (see right column) or placing an ad on the site. $20/month. You can't beat that!!!

Also, they're "non-partisan," but their stated mission is to get rid of RINOs.

Then there's the whole "original government" thing, where they have 'American Rangers.' If you got pulled over by the police, you just call a Ranger to come over, he'll tell the cop that he's violating his oath and the cop will have to let you go!

Totally not crazy.
