Join RJ Harris and help Bailout Liberty!

September 24, 2009

By Rob Work:

It was Liberty that inspired our Forefathers to settle in a land without undue encumbrances. It was Liberty that raised their guns in defiance of despotic rule. It was for the dream to maintain that hard won Liberty paid for with the sacrifice of blood, lives, and tears that our Forefathers instituted the Supreme Law to be that which ties the hands of government and protects our Natural Liberty. It was for Liberty that men fought to free other men from the shackles of slavery and it was the dream of Liberty that inspired a generation of people to stand against the oppression of unjust law.

Before we can understand what we have lost, we must understand what we had. In the beginning, even before we instituted societies, we had Liberty; it is the Natural State of humanity governed by Natural law. Natural Law’s demands are simple; it simply requires that no one person should interfere with another’s life, liberty, or possessions. Therefore, the Law of a correct society should only be that which is needed to protect those who follow the demands of Natural law, from those who do not. Then we are truly free to pursue our lives as long as we follow natural law.

When the laws of Government no matter the intent, proceed as to elevate themselves above Natural law, encroach upon and cross the line, no longer only protecting our Natural Liberty, but instead postures itself as to impose it’s will, claiming a place in it’s arrogance above Natural Law, and above the Sovereign people it is to Serve, it becomes the very essence of that which it was instituted to protect us against. It no longer serves Liberty, it suppresses it.

It is in this state we find our Liberty today, Trodden, abused, and oppressed. No longer can we pursue our lives in freedom, legal action is around every corner and even breathing may soon be taxed. The long reaching hand of government is felt in every corner of our lives, from the theft of our life through unwarranted taxation and the ideals of socialism and communism; to the simplest acts such as Lemonade Stands, Garage sales, Property ownership and development, the kind of speech we cannot use, where we cannot engage in religious speech or prayer, illegal warrantless searches, the oppression of gun ownership and right to carry, and even the policing of thought. These are just a few of the ways our government has put our Liberty in exile. We have seen the abuses of power that led to the bailouts of corrupt institutions, and industries which have been nearly destroyed by corrupt government mandates and special interests. It is time we realize, the only bailout we need, the only bailout that will actually work, is simple.

We must Bailout Liberty!

When we are free to pursue our lives in peace, we work, we save, we build, we create jobs, and yes, we spend.

Only through our direct involvement and contribution will those men and women who support Natural Law, our Liberty, and its protecting document The Constitution, have the opportunity to serve in such a bold yet humble way. It is their desire to Restore the Constitution and thereby Save our Republic, not only for themselves but for all Americans and our collective posterity. They are the new Jeffersons, Franklins, Paines, Washingtons, Hamiltons, Henrys, and they need our help.

RJ Harris is just such a patriot. He has vowed to never solicit campaign money from lobbyists or corporate interests; therefore, he is in need of our help. We find hope in RJ and he finds his in us. Surprisingly, it doesn’t require a second mortgage, or the emptying of a college fund to help. In fact, we are simply asking you to dedicate to give just a dollar a week, if you can do more, please do. RJ’s donation page has a convenient way for you to set up a regular monthly contribution. Please go there today and solidify your stand to help Bailout Liberty by donating to RJ’s campaign.

Major Campaign Updates

September 16, 2009

Dear Friend and Patriot,

We have several exciting announcements.

Firstly, we’ve launched a brand new website http://www.rjharris2010.com with added features, usability, and a plethora of new content. In addition to the new website we have kicked our internet marketing into full gear. We will be sending out weekly updates and new blogs just about every day on our new blogs & news section. You may also subscribe to our new RSS Feed as well. Overall, our internet marketing game has increased two-fold. While our internet marketing has all ready overwhelmed our opposition (e.g. search engine results overly defeat Tom Cole’s), these new changes will take us over the top.

Secondly, we’ve hired several interns who are helping us with various positions in the campaign previously unmanaged.

Thirdly, RJ Harris is coming to the big screen!

Joined by some of the greatest champions for freedom and liberty of our age, including Ron Paul, G Edward Griffin, Adam Kokesh and many others, RJ speaks about the recent outgrowths of the modern progressive movement in the United States and what we must do to restore our Republic and our Constitution. “A New America Movie” will premiere in Oklahoma at the “Starplex Cinemas”, Robinson Crossing in Norman, on the first weekend in October. (Exact date and time will be released shortly.)

Below is a message from RJ:
__________________________________________________________

Please make a donation today to help us pay for advertising during the Glenn Beck Program for the premier. We all ready have the commercials developed; we just need help paying for the airtime. This premier is the headline event this campaign needs to show the 15% undecided’s (from the poll discussed below) the strength and viability of my campaign.
Private Poll shows the Oklahoma 4th District Congressional Race to be a close one!

Oklahoma- September 10, 2009 – Internal polling from the RJ Harris 2010 campaign shows Rep. Tom Cole, the incumbent since 2003 at 54%, RJ Harris at 31%, and 15% undecided.

The number of undecided-votes clearly shows Harris within striking distance of an incumbent that should have had all undecided-votes nailed down years ago. Moreover, this is how things stand with RJ having raised only $22,000 to date. Imagine what these numbers would look like with another $100k behind RJ?! This poll was conducted by Persistence Consulting LLC and included only likely Republican primary voters from the 4th district. New political activists, which cannot be counted due to their lack of primary participation up till recently, are expected to break for the grass-roots candidate; RJ.

My friends, this seat is wide open and it is time we show the establishment that we mean to take it from them.

Lastly, we want to thank you for your donations and support. Without the help of patriots like you we wouldn’t be at 31% and RJ wouldn’t be featured in this amazing documentary. We are putting your money to good use, and we will absolutely win this election!

For Liberty!

912 Project and the First 912 Candidate

September 12, 2009

The 9/12 Project and the 9/12 Candidates answering the call.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sep 12, 2009 – — Oklahoma — As Glenn Beck and the 912 movement march on Washington today, the answers that they are looking for have all ready been put into place. Across the country there are candidates standing up calling themselves 912 candidates.

RJ Harris was the first 912 candidate in the nation. He full heartedly agreed to sign the contract and submit to the principles and values articulated by Glenn Beck and the 912 Project. Today as thousands march on D.C., and millions watch around the world, Mr. Harris is preparing for the biggest battle of our generation. The battle to restore our constitution, republic, and the 9 principles and 12 values of the 912 project is among us.

Harris believes that we can win this battle through peaceful, yet strongly motivated, activism and charge to take back our Congress!

In the midst of bailouts, socialism, GIVE acts, continued involvement into our personal lives, and the expansion of the Federal Government, there are individuals and large bodies of activists coming together for the cause of Freedom. Harris has the integrity and leadership—being a Sgt. And leader of two platoons in the Army National Guard, and an expert on the U.S. Constitution – to lead other 912 candidates and this great nation in the fight to restore our Republic!

Response to Tom Cole’s recently articulated position on the health care debate and on President Obama’s honesty.

September 11, 2009

Recently, Tom Cole articulated that the American People want another (different from the current) federal plan for health care. My interactions with the people of the 4th district tell me that what they want is NO federal health care plan and for the federal government to get out of the peoples private health care business. Indeed the intuitions of the people are insightful considering that Article I Sec. 8 of the Constitution gives the Congress the power to “provide for the general Welfare of the United States.” This qualifying clause refers to the nation-state and not to individuals. In fact, individual Welfare, which is what health care is, does not appear anywhere in the Constitution. So when Tom Cole articulates that we need “a plan”, and insinuates that that plan be a federal plan, one provided by big government Republicans as opposed to big government Democrats, he is advocating an un-constitutional position on the issue.

Additionally, Cole advocated the creation of a “national health insurance market.” Where does the Constitutional authority for this come from? Markets are created by the people not the state. However, I will concede that, at least in this area, Cole is in the right neighborhood. This is because the limits of the federal Congresses ability to effect health care is to use it’s legitimate commerce clause power, also found in Article I Sec. 8, to ensure that the states are not allowed to erect trade barriers that undermine the free flow of goods and or services between themselves, in this case; health insurance.

Some have added (not Cole that I know of) that tort reform is needed to “fix” what ails healthcare. This is correct save that tort reform is a power reserved to the states under the 10th amendment. I do not trust, nor have the people consented, to allow the federal Congress to do anything not expressly enumerated in the Constitution. Thus, short of a Constitutional amendment, the states need to address the issue of tort reform and those states that do a good job on that issue will attract better health care providers.

Lastly, Cole’s inability to call a lie a lie is exactly the type of word playing that We the People have come to expect from politicians and are fed up with. So to Cole I say this: “if you don’t have the courage to speak the truth and stand by Congressman Joe Wilson then how can the people of the 4th district count on your courage to stand up to this president when he comes to take our liberty’?

Poll Shows Close Race in Oklahoma’s 4th District

September 10, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Private Poll shows the Oklahoma 4th District Congressional Race to be a close one

Oklahoma- September 10, 2009 – Internal polling from the RJ Harris 2010 campaign shows Rep. Tom Cole, the incumbent since 2003 at 54%, RJ Harris at 31%, and 15% undecided.

The number of undecided-votes clearly shows Harris within striking distance of an incumbent that should have had all undecided-votes nailed down years ago. This poll was conducted by Persistence Consulting LLC and included likely Republican primary voters from the 4th district.

This news comes after Harris’s campaign has announced its’ current election -contributions at $21,699.69. The highest amount raised by democratic opposition to Rep. Tom Cole in the past three election cycles was $29,344 by Hal Spake in 2006. Harris has surpassed the record of the other two democrat opponents from 2004 and 2008. Rep. Tom Cole has not faced a Republican Primary challenge since 2002. If these numbers indicate anything, it’s that Rep. Tom Cole’s primary race is shaping up to be tougher than his last three general election races against the Democrats.

RJ Harris is an Iraq War Veteran, and a pronounced Constitutional Conservative Republican, living in Norman Oklahoma. His website is http://www.rjharris2010.com
