Kirk is not the candidate that should be running in this race this year. He only lucked out in the primary and he likes talking about his role in the Lame Duck congress but the truth is he is the one who has been ducking. Hes been ducking debates (didnt debate once with Patrick Hughes), ducking his record which would make a liberal Dem proud. I know plenty of folks like to justify voting for this quiet chameleon but he will be absolutely the worst Senator we could possibly have outside of having Barbara Boxer join the Republican Party.
I believe there is an opportunity for conservatives and the Tea Party in this race. Mike Labno who Ive had the opportunity to talk to personally is a credible candidate. He is a devote catholic, his mother died when he was a child and he was raised by his widowed father, he is Pro-Life and receives the highest rating from Pro-Life orgs, he is not a social liberal and favors states rights on the issues of Immigration and Same Sex Marriage. He supports a strong National security though he does not believe nation building has served us in Iraq and Afghanistan and in my conversations with him he expressed a deep love for the troops and a committment to provide resources and funding for them even if he disagrees with the conflict or the way we got into it.
Mike is a self made man. He has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and got his start working on hot rods. He is a Construction foreman by profession and is a union member but he does not support Card Check or liberal union policies. He is also a musician and volunteers at his church, the Chicago Guardian Angels, and the World Security Bureau where he provided security and for victims of domestic violence escorting them to court hearings. He is also involved with local TEA Parties.
He is an awesome candidate and not one of the typical out there libertarians. He is a Jefforsonian Libertarian who used to be a Republican but got fed up with the party. I think Mike deserves the support of conservatives in this race we have just enough time to kick both Alexi and Kirk to the side.
Dont take my word for it. Contact him and talk to him at his web site or here on FreeRepublic.
I encourage all Freepers to kick in $5 to $10 and help the only current conservative/liberty candidate on the ballot for US Senate.
Illinois: “Poll after poll shows Kirk and Giannoulias not liked at all.”
Thanks for the encouragement. Mike is getting a lot more media attention. What he needs badly is a high profile conservative endorsement & some air time on national radio.
Welcome. The undecideds are huge in this race, over 20 pnts in some polls. I have no doubt if Mike can get some high profile endorsements Kirk will bleed voters like water. Also I think he will draw a nice chunk of disgusted Democrats. This is all about a watershed moment. We have to make sure we do all the social networking we can.
