#1 Iowa Republican defends ending run for state Senate, joining shadow government07-16-2012, 05:02 PMAn Iowa Republican has caused a stir after ending her run for state legislature, and then becoming a "senator" for a de facto shadow government known as the Republic for the United States of America.
The former candidate, Randi Shannon, defended the bizarre decision in an interview with FoxNews.com on Monday, and did her best to explain her reasons for doing so.
Organizers say the Republic for the United States of America was the original government in this country, before it was replaced 225 years ago by the "de facto corporation known as the United States."
Shannon told FoxNews.com the Republic is a bona-fide group, which appointed her to the temporary position of senator. She explained that the Republic was replaced in 1871 by a government given "carte blanche to fleece 'We the people.'"
Organizers began in 2010 reforming the Republic, which Shannon said has representatives in all 50 states. However, it remains unclear what changes Republic leaders can make since they have no seats of power in a formally recognized government.

I thought she had a good chance of winning. So much for that.
I may or may not of known this person for about 35 years. I'm not sure I want to admit that now.

I don't blame her. Why go through the hassle and expense of running for senate when you can just be appointed a senator.
She cited the growing size of government -- particularly "ObamaCare" -- as one of the biggest and most recent intrusions by "big government" into the lives of her family members and other Americans.Be Not Afraid.

I had to unlike one of her facebook pages and I think I have to unlike her personal page.
She has totally gone nuts. She has posted like ten articles about the amounts of psychotic drugs prescribed to adults and children and the link is from a Ron Paul website. I'm no doctor, but I think she is a good canidate for some of this same medication.
I'm sure all those that worked on her campaign and donated money are very proud as they climb into a hole.
From what I am told she was the front runner in the campaign in a very important race. Now she claims our gov't is unconstitutional...every online political blog seems to be covering this now.

At least she went nuts in a somewhat intelligent manner, which will make her interesting to treat.
Risperdol would probably help. But then you get into the whole debate about people who think differently than most of society, and whether they should be medicated until they come into compliance with the norms and accept the reality that the rest of society accepts. The Equus debate.

My brother takes risperdal* and it's only an anti-psychotic, to calm him. The woman in question is beyond that, I think she needs something way stronger. Like restraints.Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
