Michael Badnarik, constitutional scholar, author, and former Libertarian Party Presidential candidate announced his endorsement today of Tisha Casida, who is running as an Independent in Colorado’s third congressional district.
Mr. Badnarik released the following statement today in his support of Tisha Casida:
Like so many Americans, I have come to distrust my government, and I have grown cynical about the election process. My campaigns for President and for Congress made me realize how corrupt the process has become. Until recently, I had very little hope of restoring Liberty in this country without the use of violence. I am pleased to report that my hope has been restored. I have discovered Tisha Casida.
Tisha is a successful business woman from Pueblo, Colorado, who has taken it upon herself to run for Congress in Colorado’s 3rd District. That seat was occupied for six years by a Democrat who was unseated by a Republican in the last election. The people from the Western Slope of Colorado are already planning to unseat the Republican in the next election.
Tisha has wisely decided to run as an Independent to avoid the negative perceptions associated with running as a major party candidate. I recently spent a week in Colorado touring the district and listening to Tisha present herself to the voters. I found her to be intelligent, articulate, passionate, and personable. The people she spoke to were impressed by her integrity and delighted with her charm. I was impressed by her strict adherence to the principles documented in the Constitution. She was able to answer difficult questions with wisdom and poise. I consider her a very electable candidate.
I cannot predict the future, but I am certain that Americans will restore Liberty eventually. I don’t know where it will happen, but sooner or later a patriotic candidate of integrity will defeat the two major party candidates, beginning the much anticipated revolution to restore our freedoms.
It is well known that I hesitate to endorse even Libertarian candidates, however I enthusiastically endorse Tisha Casida for Congress in 2012. I sincerely believe that her campaign may be the first domino to fall in a long chain reaction that will eventually restore our cherished republic. I also plan to dedicate as much of my time and energy to her campaign as possible, and I hope that you will make the same commitment after you take the time to learn about her platform. Together, we can make this happen.
