To Whom It May Concern:
I consider myself to be efficient at communicating, so this is my blanket statement for those of you who have the following things to say to me:
“You shouldn’t run for office.”
It is my Creator-given right to express myself freely, as well as to run to be a representative in my government.
“You don’t have enough money to run for office.”
I personally don’t think that the amount of money that you have should be a precursor to being able to do or accomplish anything.
“You should “pick a side”.”
I know that both major parties – the Republicans and the Democrats – are corrupt beyond any fixing, and that although there are wonderful individuals inside of those parties, that any “collective” eventually erodes the rights of the individuals. By “majority rule” – eventually the “minority” is silenced.
Thank you so much for understanding that this is not your decision, it is mine. I am a fully functional, intelligent, and free woman with the ability to outline and effectively communicate important issues to the constituents of Colorado’s third congressional district. I will be the only candidate to speak freely without ties to collective organizations and to political parties, that hurts the individual liberty of Americans and of people around the world – welcome to your next generation of people participating in government and politics.

Below is an example of the letters that were personalized and sent out to the sheriffs in Colorado’s District Three. Please feel free to use this verbiage however you may like to write to the sheriffs in your county and state.
Sheriff Dave Strong
1315 17th Street
Alamosa, Colorado 81101
I am running for congress in Colorado’s third congressional district. I am running because I am very concerned about our country’s economy and the numerous unconstitutional laws coming out of Washington.
I know that the Sheriff is the highest executive authority in the county – and that the sheriff has the authority and responsibility to protect the citizens in their county from unconstitutional actions by the federal government. The passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and Strategic Implementation Plan for Empowering Local Partners to Prevent Violent Extremism in the United States (SIP), demonstrate how severe the problem has become, and show how imperative it is that solutions must be enacted at the local level.
Peggy Littleton, the county commissioner of El Paso County, recently presented a resolution to “keep the federal government from overstepping its authority when enforcing terrorism law – specifically as it relates to habeas corpus, the right to due process under the law” (KRDO News, December 15, 2011).
Arizona’s Sheriff Richard Mack has spoken and written about the importance of our county sheriffs in his book, County Sheriff – America’s Last Hope. I will be sending you a copy for your reference and review.
Sheriff Mack is also organizing the first annual County Sheriff Project scheduled for January 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada. Two hundred Sheriffs from across the country will gather to increase their understanding and awareness of the true power of their constitutional authority and to unite in a concerted effort to uphold and defend the United States Constitution.
Sponsors are currently raising money to cover the travel and lodging expenses at no cost to the Sheriffs who are invited. I have reason to believe that you will be one of the county Sheriffs who will be receiving an eMail invitation directly from Sheriff Mack. I am hoping that you will consider attending this historic event if you are given that opportunity.
I am a young woman who believes in the principles embodied in the Constitution. I am not a terrorist or an extremist. I am an activist and a true believer in liberty. I want to know that you will protect us by throwing out federal agents that attempt to harm us in our peaceful protests and constitutional expressions of our first amendment rights.
I have written about the importance for local communities to rely on county Sheriffs on our campaign website, www.Casida2012.com. I would like to request a meeting with you when we are in town touring the district. Please contact me at any time. I would like to work with you to create a positive and actionable dialogue that will protect our communities and country.

Now, more than any election cycle in the last 40 years, people are switching their voter registration to Independent. Not because they will vote for Independents but because they are embarrassed to be Republican or Democrat. So, that’s the first step – to shame people into opting out of parties. Both parties are doing a great job of pushing away the people they need to win and can’t understand why (and never will). So, “infiltration of a party” is very temporary. Parties, by nature, become corrupted. Republican elites want to discredit Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Michele Bachman or anyone else that they don’t want to hand-feed us. I understand that the ‘frat-club’ mentality and process exists to sort-out candidates to declare an overall candidate that the party supports. But when it becomes so obvious that the people who caucus are being pushed around and manipulated rather than making sound decisions on their own the process – the people who seek truth will revolt.
We will see if Iowa remains relevant and then follow each state after to see if any of them are relevant, or find out if it’s just a big joke stacked with primary puppets in each state. For the media and Republican Class Elites, wining Iowa is only relevant if you pick who they want. Even the debates started off stacked. Where did Gary Johnson and John Huntsman go? Both are very successful Governors and were barely allowed to participate in debates because they didn’t meet the polling criteria. How is that possible when their names were not even included in most of the polling? Yet Santorum (who polls lower than both Huntsman and Johnson) is still included in debates? Suspect behavior by the media and Republicans for sure. Does anyone remember way back when Gary Johnson tied third with Chris Christie at CPAC? And then that was promptly ignored and excluded from just about all things Republican? Do we see any relation to this in Iowa? Maybe the same people in control? These two fine candidates were not given a fair shake because they were a threat to the GOP and Republican Elites knew to kill them off early in their process.
So, here we go again with the ‘Flavor of the Week’ scenario in Iowa. Really? It’s so obvious the Republican Political Elite-Class Machine is in full swing when the only candidate that keeps floating is the Mitt Cookie they are trying to feed us. Mitt just keeps floating about halfway up the glass and never to the top. Why? Every candidate that begins to rise somehow has something pop up that beats them back down just below the unimpressive Mitt percent of reliable level pullers. Most of the ‘scandals’ are from decades past that someone had to dig deep for and then had to twist and feed to the media in ways to support an attack. It’s working because big media continues to control what you see and hear via the Republican Elite Machine. Why do we continue to enable the press and the Elite Political Class, are we the chumps they think we are? Its looking like we have another poor choice coming our way just like McCain was force-fed to us because, according to the Republican Machine, only McCain could win against Obama and now only Romney. Really? How blind can Republicans be?
We have the opportunity to capture the White House, Senate and House with candidates who will make the radial changes needed to restore liberty to the American People only if people realize that Independent voters determine who wins elections and that the media and both parties restrict our vision when we let them. We live in a time when the Internet and other communications provide huge amounts of information to look at and consider. It’s all slanted but the real problem is what each person considers ‘reliable’. I am asking people to look beyond their reliable sources and open their minds. There is no perfect candidate. There are, however, many great choices beyond what the parties shove in your face and then warn us that a vote for anyone else is really a loss. So, if you felt that your vote for McCain last time was a smart move, you are obviously part of the problem. And if you think Obama is going keep the Independents that voted him in last time, you’d be wrong on that one also. Both parties have demonstrated that a win for either Republican or Democrat is the best thing for the elites on both sides – which is all about control and power, and enslaving the American People. Wake up – THEY ARE NOT ON OUR SIDE! The side of Freedom, Prosperity, and Peace!
Voting your conscience might actually change things for the better. Regardless, a vote for Romney is a vote for Obama because they are one in the same. Open your mind, and the truth shall set you free.
Buy boots and support our troops – plus pay tribute to our veterans! What a beautiful way to support the free market and the men and women who serve and protect us, and preserve our liberty!
I believe myself to be a fairly intelligent, responsible, and caring individual. What is disheartening is the amount of rejection one can face when standing up for what is right and what entails liberty and freedom.
In working with various political parties, I have been appalled at the lethargic nature of the political machine. I am also disgusted with how I am treated incompetent because I am a young female. Albeit not all of the time, unfortunately these attitudes persist in our society and are detrimental to progress as a nation. I AM the Next Generation of Leaders.
I believe that most political parties are doomed to ever making something truly happen for the people. The reason is because they in themselves are political machines with predetermined motives and agendas. Even the Libertarian Party, of which I am a huge fan, is so wrapped up in its own incredulous image of itself that they miss opportunities, and do not embrace people who would make excellent mouth-pieces for them.
It would be easy to quit. But saving a country and an economy is not for the faint of heart. I promise to you, whoever reads this, that there are enough of us fighting to get our country back – without the power of any political party or machine. It is up to the people – period.

What a wonderful day in politics. The power of the people – of the people’s vote and voice – has been readily apparent with the elections held in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Arkansas.
Finally, WE THE PEOPLE, are standing up and making our voices heard. Finally, support for liberty and free markets appears to be making a headway with our representatives.
Great job to all of those who have worked so hard to vet and elect representatives that will uphold our constitution and allow free markets to fuel our economy!
