Delaware Libertarian candidates golf for Wounded Warriors

On August 13 a foursome composed of Libertarian US House candidate Scott Gesty, his wife Maria, 7th District State Senate candidate Jim Christina, and 32nd District State House candidate Will McVay will be participating in The World's Largest Golf Outing to benefit The Wounded Warrior Project.

You can visit the Golf Outing website here, and hit the link to "Sponsor a Team."

In the name bar, enter "Libertarian" and Scott's name will pop up.

Please feel free to join me in donating to a great cause.

No matter what we may think about the policies that send them out there, America's military men and women put their lives on the line to defend us.  We have to support our troops and our veterans, especially the ones who came home to us disabled.

And remember, Libertarians--like all other Americans--are at their best when they are doing something to give back to their community.

As a Veteran I can tell you that the very best way to support the Troops is by supporting the Mission itself.

We Military Guys want VICTORY! with a capitol 'V'. We don't want to come home to a bunch of weenies sitting there telling us on our TV screens how "golly geez, the Iraq War was a mistake..." Or, "Islamo-Naziism is not threat to the U.S. If we just make friends with our enemies they'll leave us along, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah."

Let Military Guys be Military Guys. Don't turn us into a bunch of pansys with all this "peace" garbage. And lines like "support the Troops, don't support the Mission." You do that, and you are by definition anti-Military, whether you like to admit it or not.

First, I was in the military considerably longer than you--screw your little jingoistic lectures.

Second, the military goes where it is told, does what it is told to do. Civilians decide. That's the way the system works. Don't like it? Too bad.

Third, you have to have nothing else to do today if you are busy carpet-bombing here.

You want "jingoistic," it's called Islamo-Naziism. They're the warmongers. They started this. It happened in 1979, when these Islamists took our embassy in Tehran. They've been fighting us ever since, only we're too much of a patsy roll-over Nation to recognize it.

Bush recognized it for a couple years after 9/11. Yet he avoided attacking our main enemy the Saudis.

Bush used the term "Islamo-Fascism," one single time in his entire administration.

The jingoism is on the Islamist side. You can hear it in their chants of "Allahu-Ahkbar." And "kill the Infidel."

Too bad our ears are covered over, and we're too scared to hear what they are actually saying.

As for pulling rank, I go back to the original Delaware Libertarian Party. I was a candidate for DE State Legislature way back in 1986. I remember the original Delaware Libertarian Party, that was consistently Pro-Liberty. Back in the 1980s, the DE LP would have coiled over Islamo-Fascism. Would have supported policies to fight back.

Too bad the DE LP has been infiltrated by a bunch of weenie leftists, posing as "libertarians."

Oh please, tell me the secret history of the LPD. Starting with when this leftist takeover occurred. (hint, i joined the LPD before you did)

Yeah, and you got 86 votes (2.5%) in a 2-way race. That means the Democrats were voting for your Republican opponent instead of picking you as a protest vote!

Every other Libertarian who has ever run in a 2-way race in Delaware got at least 10% of the votes.
