Liberty Candidates should retake Congress

It is very important that we separate Liberty Candidates from Neo-Con Republicans etc. Remember the five points of criteria to be a Liberty Candidate:

I urge you to ask your candidate to answer questions using the five points of criteria should they claim to be a Liberty Candidate.  We need to retake Congress and cannot do so with the same old tired party politics.  Liberty should not be affiliated with a party, rather principles. 
We have a lot to overcome and we can do it if you will stand firm on the criteria and refuse to vote for one that will not uphold the principles of liberty.

Criteria:
A Liberty Candidate will
Defend the Great American Principles of Individual Liberty, Constitutional Government, Sound Money, Free Markets, and a Noninterventionist Foreign Policy.

The Retake Congress Platform:
Our goal is to find and support at least one candidate to run in all 435 congressional districts who will solemnly swear to uphold this simple non-partisan platform that covers 4 areas:

The Economy: Honesty and transparency must be returned to our financial system. There should be a thorough investigation and evaluation of the Federal Reserve System. The arbitrary power to create money with no oversight must be ended. There should be no increase in the national debt. The Federal Government needs to stay out of the affairs of private business. There should be no taxpayer bailouts of corporations and no corporate subsidies.
Individual Rights: Individual rights and sovereignty are supreme and inherent. The proper role of government is to protect our unalienable rights to life, liberty, and property. The federal government must serve the people by protecting these rights within the borders of the states that make up the union. We must repeal the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the FISA legislation. We must reject the notion and practice of torture, elimination of habeas corpus, secret tribunals, and secret prisons. We must deny immunity for corporations that spy willingly on the American people for the benefit of the government. We must return the checks and balances as intended by the founders. The illegal use of signing statements and illegal use of executive orders must be ended. The government must not regulate the content of the media.
Foreign Policy: We must stand for a strong national defense. The military is the main responsibility of the Federal Government. Our military should be used to protect only our citizens and defend our borders. We need to get our troops out of foreign countries and politics. Our foreign policy should not impose our will or way of life on other nations. We must not act as world police. We must reject international treaties that could destroy our national sovereignty.
Congressional Promise: No member of congress should ever vote for any bill they have not read!

Here is a list of those running for Congress in Alabama:  Please use the Liberty Criteria and ask the candidates where they stand for liberty. 

I ask that you get your responses back to me so I can get a score card out on where that Candidate stands.  You know if they believe in Liberty they will work to nullify the overstretching hand of DC and we can defeat the pretenders.

About DD for Liberty

We render unto Caesar, but we write Caesar's laws.
We should write and uphold laws that go no further than protecting your God given right to life, liberty and property, the pursuit of happiness.
I am a wife and mother that wants the best for her family. The best as I see it is for Government to get out of the way.
God is our protector and has equipped us with all the faculties and means necessary for a productive and free life and I need no man to tell my family what is best for them.
I am a Patriot and Libertarian.
I am a fan of the greatest Peacemaker Jesus.
Taxation is theft.
If you seek security over liberty you deserve neither.
My favorite quote:

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!”~Samuel Adams
