There have been significant developments in just the past week. Among them is the announcement of a “self-funder” named David Spence.
We don’t know much about this 53 year old business man, but do know that he just started voting about 10 years ago. We also know how he’s been contributing money. (See below.) He in 2004 he gave money to Chuck Schumer. And this year he’s given $45k to a pac set up for Mitt Romney.
He has pledged to self-fund as much as $4 million. Ed is probably our only hope to beat this guy or Nixon, but we must rally around him!
See where the current Gubenatorial Race stands, and what our chances are of getting Jay Nixon out of office without Ed Martin in the Race for the Governor of Missouri’s seat, and catch up on chatter from the left.
Hope to see you there! Please spread the word! See: http://www.draft-ed-martin.com/
As per Missouri political genius Ron Calzone:
Mr. Obama is not the first to try to “change” our Republic, but his change promises to transform the Great American Experiment faster and more radically than anyone in history.
He may have succeeded in starting something that just can’t be stopped. In just a few years we may no longer recognize what was once the American Republic.
For the last couple of years I have traveled around the state explaining how state nullification of unconstitutional federal edicts may be the only way to Restore the Republic. It’s a call for state level officials to “interpose” when their people’s liberty is being eroded by the constant wash of federal intrusion – things like Obamacare.
The prospect of stemming the tide of federal usurpation excites every crowd, but the politically savvy often ask, “But if the governor won’t enforce legislative acts of nullification, then what?”
That’s the one question that leaves me speechless – almost.
My only answer has been, “We have to change the governor.” But, that was a seemingly hopeless proposition – until recently.
Perhaps providentially, an opportunity has presented itself for patriots across the state to rise up and demand a governor who will make the protection of the people’s “life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness” the “principal office” of Missouri government again.
We now have an opportunity to elect a man who will interpose for the people when unconstitutional federal edicts threaten our freedom.
We have an opportunity to say “No!” to a political machine that has a stranglehold on the state – choking out opportunity and the free market principles that are the bulwark of all our liberty. We will no longer be constrained to their “short list” of nominees for governor!
We can’t fix the whole thing, but we have an opportunity to elect a governor who will lead us into restoration of the chunk of republic we call Missouri!
Ed Martin will be the people’s governor, not a hand-picked vassal of the ruling elite.
And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works. — Frédéric Bastiat – “The Law”
