There is none higher in Michigan politics, running for Michigan Senate
Fundraiser Tuesday 18 July 2017, Billy’s Tip ‘n’ Inn, White Lake, MI
Contributed by David Lonier
All Michigan liberty people, please attend, and if you can’t, please contribute to Repre-sentative Runestad’s campaign. Even though the pressures of political success can undermine anyone’s commitment to the principles of liberty, Mr. Runestad has already shown resistance to such attacks as a representative. I won’t be able to attend this fundraiser, but I shall be sending him $50. I’ve met him, looked him in the eye, and anyone can just know that Jim is the real deal. He’ll be a strong voice for freedom in our state for years to come.—BWContinue reading →

Auburn Heights, Michigan. Feisty, bantam-weight Jake Foster had scrapped for his living since he was a boy on the tough streets of Pontiac. This latest dustup with the Michigan monopoly power company (DTE Energy—nee Detroit Edison) would yield the same response: a fight… perhaps to the finish.
Could he and his dear wife, Brenda, prevail?
The cards were stacked against them.
Today, without so much as a pleasant voice on the phone or polite notice in the mail, a pack of variously uniformed human-shaped entities showed up in and around his yard to shut off electric power to his home. Continue reading →
Last week’s election results are being openly celebrated by some misguided conservatives. The partisan cheerleaders are excited and gloating because the Red Team prevailed. This is supposedly going to lead to a profound shift in the direction of the country, according to these people. While it was certainly fun to watch Obama and his stooges take it on the chin, the people who got elected are unfortunately not much of an improvement. By and large, it wasn’t the tea party wing of the party that succeeded on Nov. 4. Instead, it was by-and-large the establishment hacks that were funded by the same corrupt interests that tried to unseat Justin Amash gaining the seats of power. Continue reading →
Michigan Republican State Convention site of next big move on the weiqe board
Coming up slightly short in the vote count, but way ahead in the enthusiasm race, liberty Republican candidate for lieutenant governor in the Wolverine State, Wes Nakagiri, had the establishment forces all a-frazzled, wondering whether somebody forgot to grease the skids on the Juggernaut of State.
In the 2012 primary race, an excellent Forbes article described how Ron Paul was thinking in the long range strategy of shi (pronounced sure) as opposed to his opponents’ shorter-range power-politics plan of attack, called li in Chinese. In the long run, shi, in service of the ‘Freedom Philosophy‘—especially when accompanied by the Gandhian global truth force, Satyagraha—is the superior philosophy. Shi, like water, always wins. It’s just a matter of time. Do we have the time?
From liberty Republican David Lonier’s email 8/15/2014:
“As many of you may have heard and/or witnessed, the 11th Congressional District achieved a milestone victory for true conservatism at the [Oakland] County Convention last night by electing Matt Maddock as our Chairman. The result was the removal of a preselected slate of establishment delegates to the State convention and the approval by a two to one majority (204:115) of a more representative slate.”
