> 1. Why are you running for Congress?
I would only vote for a candidate that America's Founding Fathers would vote for. There is no such candidate running, so I had to run. This gives people like me someone to vote for.
So why would America's Founding Fathers vote for Kevin Craig and not the Republican or Democrat candidates? Top three reasons:
Abolishing the USA
Most Americans have never thought about what America's Founding Fathers would think about today's government. If they were to travel through time from 1776 to 2006 and see the government they created, the Founders would immediately begin overthrowing it. In no meaningful way can the federal government be said to bear any resemblance to the Constitution they signed. The Declaration of Independence says it is our "duty" to abolish any government that is as destructive of God-given rights as the government under King George III was. The British government was a benevolent libertarian Christian government compared to the Bush-Clinton regime, which is hostile, tyrannical and atheistic.
Most Americans are also unaware that the Bush-Clinton regime is in fact working to abolish the government created by the Constitution, merging the U.S. and Mexico into a new government which might be called the "North American Union" or "The United States of North America." I have described this incredible "paranoid conspiracy theory" here:
It is not a theory, it is an on-going government program that even has its own
When the Bible and voluntary prayer were taken out of local schools by the federal government in the early 1960's, one concurring Justice admitted that the Framers of the Constitution believed that teaching religion and Christian morality was the most important function of public schools. Most parents today agree with America's Founding Fathers. Kevin Craig passionately stands for parental choice and "the separation of school and state."
Government schools train people to become slaves of the government.
WAR on TERRORISM
The U.S. federal government's entangling alliance with the Soviet Union, including economic and technical aid, enabled the Soviet Union to invade Afghanistan. The federal government's entangling alliance with the Afghan "Freedom Fighters" enabled Al-queda to invade the U.S. The federal government's entangling alliance with the Shah of Iran gave rise to the Ayatollah Khomeini, and the taking of U.S. hostages, and justified U.S. foreign aid for Saddam Hussein when he was at war with Iran.
The great rule of conduct for us, in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations to have with them as little political connection as possible."
— Washington, Farewell Address (1796) [Washington's emphasis]
I deem [one of] the essential principles of our government, and consequently [one] which ought to shape its administration,…peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none.
— Jefferson, First Inaugural Address (1801)
In short, the U.S. government created "terrorism." Most Americans are unaware of this shocking history.
And now the federal government wants to destroy our liberties to fight the enemy the federal government itself created.
Not a single person who signed the Constitution would stand for this.
> 2. Why are you running as a Libertarian rather than as a Democrat or a
The Republican incumbent will have about $2 million in his campaign war-chest for the 2006 campaign, and is the third most-powerful man in Congress. If I ran as a Republican, I would not make it past the primary to be running in the general election.
Republicans SAY they are for smaller government (in some areas), but Democrats don't even CLAIM to be for smaller government. Both parties believe the State is the Messiah, the bringer of Salvation at home and abroad. Both parties inculcate blind obedience to the state, and party members tend to believe all propaganda emanating from the Ministry of Truth.
"We, the members of the Libertarian Party, challenge the cult of the omnipotent"I was just following orders."
state and defend the rights of the individual."
-- "Statement of Principles," Libertarian Party National Platform
"I need to feed my family."
These are the slogans of members of the cult of statism, who are willing to take up arms against their neighbors if ordered to by the government.
"I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving
political or social goals."
To become a member of the Libertarian party, one must sign this pledge. The Libertarian party is the only party of principle. This is why I'm a Libertarian.

"Woah on Terruh"
Social Security -- fraudulent and unethical program, racking up trillions in debt; should be abolished/privatized.
More issues here, many of which are equally crucial, because each one logically implies many others:

I am a Christian Anarchist.
I passed the California Bar Exam but was denied a license to practice law because my allegiance to God is greater than my allegiance to the State:
Most people vote for bumper sticker slogans and political parties.
The only people who will vote for Kevin Craig are those who are willing to learn and think about the issues.
I am committed to continue learning about the issues, and appreciate feedback on my website, KevinCraig.US, or my blog, blog.KevinCraig.US
