I never ever concieved I would possibly try running for any office ever. I became outraged over time, but particularly with the local talk show. Kevin Elkins (Montgomery, Alabama) is a good guy, but he's about an average guy like me and he would continually get beat up by callers. I sincerely felt bad for him, and began calling in and writting. I began taking his defense. I became really outraged last week when he acknowledged a well spoken man named Lee, as very intelligent. Lee was not intelligent, he was flat out wrong and spewing untruths. I became so enraged. I called in twice, and took on the attitude of bring it on. I really had a long drive that day and it was a struggle for me to listen to it. I am very passionate about liberty and truth, these words mean the world to me. I kept asking myself what are you going to do about this. I was fed up. Then I started questioning my beliefs, am I just words or am I going to deeds to my words. Then tragically (just kidding) I was reading over my blog and there sat a few choice quotes (below) that cemented my decision. I had to follow my beliefs, there was no out. I'm going to Montgomery and Birmingham to meet election officials and the party HQs. Whether they support me or not, I will follow through on my decision.
"On the battlefield of ideas, winning requires moving towards the sound of the guns."
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
One man can make a difference and every man should try.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
