This is an opportunity for the Tea Party to show real power. Poll after poll shows Kirk and Giannoulias not liked at all. The people want another choice and Mike Labno is that choice. Let's help him reach this first small goal of 30k. Below is my argument for Mike Labno. This is our year let's not end it by bending over to the establishment. They are attacking Jim DeMint, they are screwing Joe Miller, and they tried to smear Christian O'Donnell. Let's give some fire back and everyone who is skeptical of the Tea Party that we aren't just the Republican establishment's foot soldiers. The polls show there is a real opening for Labno. His only problem is name rec. All that is needed is a full on press and Kirk and Giannoulias won't know what hit them.

There is someone better running in the race and that candidate is Mike Labno. Mark Kirk is as far left as you can get on Abortion and Gun Control. He even received 100% rating from NARAL and supports Partial Birth Abortion. He receives the lowest rating from gun groups and has been endorsed over Alexi by antigun groups. One then might respond that he is a “fiscal conservative” and they can vote for him on that once you get past babies brains getting sucked out and the sure thing he’ll vote for every anti-gun regulation that comes down the pike not to mention that on the Supreme Court he would vote to confirm any Justice Obama sends him. Kirk’s fiscal record is at best scizophrenic he was one of six including Mike Castle that voted for Cap and Trade. He voted for TARP and voted for Obama’s additional “stimulus spending” and he has never been a reliable fiscal conservative though he does reliably support free trade and did vote for the Bush tax cuts.

Kirk is not the candidate that should be running in this race this year. He only lucked out in the primary and he likes talking about his role in the Lame Duck congress but the truth is he is the one who has been ducking. He’s been ducking debates (didn’t debate once with Patrick Hughes), ducking his record which would make a liberal Dem proud. I know plenty of folks like to justify voting for this quiet chameleon but he will be absolutely the worst Senator we could possibly have outside of having Barbara Boxer join the Republican Party.

I believe there is an opportunity for conservatives and the Tea Party in this race. Mike Labno who I’ve had the opportunity to talk to personally is a credible candidate. He is a devote catholic, his mother died when he was a child and he was raised by his widowed father, he is Pro-Life and receives the highest rating from Pro-Life orgs, he is not a social liberal and favors states rights on the issues of Immigration and Same Sex Marriage. He supports a strong National security though he does not believe nation building has served us in Iraq and Afghanistan and in my conversations with him he expressed a deep love for the troops and a committment to provide resources and funding for them even if he disagrees with the conflict or the way we got into it.

Mike is a self made man. He has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and got his start working on hot rods. He is a Construction foreman by profession and is a union member but he does not support Card Check or liberal union policies. He is also a musician and volunteers at his church, the Chicago Guardian Angels, and the World Security Bureau where he provided security and for victims of domestic violence escorting them to court hearings. He is also involved with local TEA Parties.

He is an awesome candidate and not one of the typical “out there” libertarians. He is a Jefforsonian Libertarian who used to be a Republican but got fed up with the party. I think Mike deserves the support of conservatives in this race we have just enough time to kick both Alexi and Kirk to the side.

Don’t take my word for it. Contact him and talk to him at his web site or here on FreeRepublic.

I encourage all Freepers to kick in $5 to $10 and help the only current conservative/liberty candidate on the ballot for US Senate.

Thanks for the encouragement. Mike is getting a lot more media attention. What he needs badly is a high profile conservative endorsement & some air time on national radio.

Welcome. The undecideds are huge in this race, over 20 pnts in some polls. I have no doubt if Mike can get some high profile endorsements Kirk will bleed voters like water. Also I think he will draw a nice chunk of disgusted Democrats. This is all about a watershed moment. We have to make sure we do all the social networking we can.
