Tom Hoefling is the longtime FReeper EternalVigilance -- and he's the presidential nominee of America's Party. America's Party is unlike any party you've seen before -- it is designed to ensure that America's Principles are its guiding force. The party doesn't want your money, it just wants you to do your duty as a citizen. Check out Tom's first campaign video interview, being conducted live now.
Hey if any of us decide we are going to cast a protest vote in 2012, why not do it for a Freeper.
Yeah, that's gonna happen.
This is a joke.
He’s looking for a million Christians
That will be over 950,000 more that voted for Keyes in 2008.
This is a joke.
So say the spineless.
I see you got your Rom-kneepads to fit.
How is ballot access going? Can you list specifically what states you are able to get on the ballot so freepers from those states will know?
Your presidential candidate despises Governor Sarah Palin.
The candidate is more slippery than Bill Clinton, getting a straight answer from him is close to impossible.
When two million or so tea partiers came to DC, they were quite eloquent in saying "We want our country back!" Well, putting Tom Hoefling on the ballot in your state and then electing him is a great way to get our country back.
As for Tom's opinion about Sarah Palin, well, he finds much in her record that shows she doesn't come close to meeting the simple minimal criteria that America's Party uses to endorse candidates -- see http:/www.selfgovernment.us
I have zip, zero, nada interest in Tom Hoefling's "campaign".
Hoefling is an embarrassment and a self-aggrandizing megalomaniac.
Yes, it was that misguided analysis of Palin that pushed me away from AIP. Many deep flaws, which I would peruse, but I’m at work tapping this out on my Droid, so not practical right now. Plus I don’t like arguing with people I regard as friends. It is possible to lose more than one gains with such conflicts.
But I am an unrelenting fan of Palin, whom I continue to regard as an exemplary and fully authentic conservative, and I will not sit passively by if and when those conservative credentials are attacked by insufficient arguments. She is for the unborn, she is for US sovereignty, she is for free markets, and representations to the contrary are, no matter the motive, false. She is one of our own and remains one of our best hopes for the political future of conservatism. She deserves better than to be sniped at by other conservatives whilst the greater enemy engulfs our trench line.
* You say she's for the unborn, for example. Well, she also thinks women have the right to choose abortion. I'm through with supporting any candidate who fails to oppose the legal fiction that any group of human beings is outside of the Constitutional protection against depriving any person of his or her life without due process.
* You also say she is for US sovereignty. Well, how do you explain her support for ratifying the 'Law of The Sea Treaty'?
If you're pro-life and pro-sovereignty, I hope you'll give America's Party and Tom Hoefling another look.
You also mention that Sarah Palin is pro-free market. Yet she did not speak out against the Bush-McCain-Obama bailout response to the fall 2008 financial disaster. America's Party candidates did strongly oppose the bailout. We pointed out that there was a much better way to solve the problem, and that it had been in our party platform since our formation: abolish the ability of federal government to tax income. The biggest advantages of this initiative have much more to do with liberty than with economic growth, but abolishing income tax would have quickly attracted investors to rush to put their money to work, and would have created an economic boom the likes of which has never been seen before. It's not too late to do this still, but we could have saved trillions of dollars worth of debt if we had done it in 2007-2008.
But the conventional wisdom among Republicans, Democrats, and the talking heads in the news media assured the public that there were two choices only: bailout or bust. That's very similar to the folks today who are saying we only have two choices for President: Obama or Romney.
You left out oily, slippery, and incredibly rude and arrogant.
I’ve been a FReeper since the Clinton administration — it was possible to read every post here in those early years, and all the comments too. I’m happy to assure everyone here that the criticisms of Tom Hoefling in this thread do not at all square with my experience. I’ve talked with Tom hundreds of times a year since first listening to him in 2007. I urge all of good will to come and talk to Tom for yourself on the Tuesday and Thursday night “America’s Summit” calls. He takes questions and joins in discussions with all comers. I’ve learned a lot from Tom over the years, and he’s always been gracious and uplifting to me and others. We continue to disagree on some policy matters, but we do agree with those ‘self-evident truths’ expressed in the Declaration of Independence, and much much more. It’s my pleasure to endorse our very own EternalVigilance — Tom Hoefling — for President this year. I’ll do what I can to get him the approximately 2-million votes to win Maryland’s electoral votes this year, and hope FReepers in other states will do likewise.
What color is the sky on your planet?
