The American Independent Party of California nominates Tom Hoefling for President
Tom Hoefling for President 2012 ^ | August 11, 2012

Posted on 08/11/2012 9:24:42 PM PDT by EternalVigilance

The American Independent Party of California, in convention, nominated me today for the office of President of the United States. This gives us the 2012 presidential ballot line.

My thanks to all who participated in the process, and to presidential candidates Wiley Drake and Virgil Goode, both of whom were present and who graciously released their delegates in order to make the final vote a unanimous one.

We'll be commenting extensively in the days ahead on the events of today and the important ramifications of this nomination.

It's time for pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-Constitution Reagan conservatives to once again have representation in California.

Let's get it done!

For Life, Liberty, and the Constitution,

Tom Hoefling

(aka EternalVigilance)

If you're a citizen of California, you will now have a FReeper, and an actual pro-life, pro-liberty, pro-Constitution Reagan conservative to vote FOR.

I’m not voting for Goode but I think the AIP was foolish not to co-nominate him. Why anyone would want to be on just 1 state ballot and operate a smaller counterpart to the Constitution party is beyond me.

This gives us the 2012 presidential ballot line.

Why can't good people realize what horrible damage a third party spoiler does?

(Hint, ask Ross Perot)

Absolutely NOTHING good can come of this self-serving kamakaze gift to Obama.

NO THIRD PARTY SPOILERS!.

No. I’ll be directly on five state ballots, which put together represent more than 20% of the electors. Plus, I’ll be a qualified write in candidate in most other states.

All told, if everyone does their job, voters representing better than 90% of the electors should be able to cast a ballot for me if they see fit.

I’m happy with that.

Having a third party in very few states is ludicrous! Taking conservative votes away for a nominee that could never win is like giving votes to the usurper. What are these people thinking?

Romney can’t win California. Everybody knows it.

So, someone might as well take a run at Obama. Might as well be me.

Take the blinders off and try to think outside the box once in a while.

EternalVigilance, I didn’t realize it was you!

Why didn’t you get your candidacy out sooner and in all states? I’m perplexed!

Because too many conservatives have been too busy chasing false flags.

Good luck to you. Whatever your chances, I hope you are able to spread a conservative message and get people interested in fixing our problems.

They are thinking Romney is as socialist as Obama and it might be even worse to elect him cause he could harm the party from the inside while doing little to no good.

Even as a HARSH critic of our last RINO leader Geo Bush 2 I have to strongly disagree with them, Osama must go. If Scalia or Thomas should incur some misfortune and Osama is still President we would be really screwed. Not to mention it’s 100% Osamacare is law and goes into effect. Many people don’t think Romney and Boehner want to repeal it but I’d take any chance higher than zero.

Good luck and every chance you get ram home the principles of the conservative message. I hope you can get some air time to go head to head with B.O. and point out the clear differences between the two ideologies and show how the left so far has been a road to destruction and not economic freedom.

Great news, Tom. Glad I was able to stop by tonight.

It’s like a snowball rolling down a steep, slick hill, gathering momentum.

Ross, is this you?

Seriously, YOU know and WE know you don't have a snowball's chance in hell...except to give the election to obama.

Ross Perot secured a lucrative gov’t loan after he delivered the election to Clinton - who won only for 47% of the vote.

Perot knew he couldn't win, at least in the election - but he sure won a bundle of ‘pay off’

You got a gig going? No REAL Conservative, TEa Party, American loving person would play the part of spoiler for the Sociallists.

do you need attention that much? Or is there a pay out lined up

No. I’m simply a conservative whose conscience won’t allow me to support a man who has spent his entire adult life helping destroy everything I believe in.

I’m sorry that concept seems foreign to you.

Exactly.

If you felt you were the better choice for candidate, then why didn't you get into the fight and duke it out like the rest of them? Seems pretty spleeny to wait 'til the last minute and ride in on a high horse, skipping all the hard work.

You're like a chicken that played on the sidelines until the Little Red Hen had sowed, tended, gathered, ground and made the bread - now it's ready to go in the oven and you jump in for the whole loaf.

Flame away, freepers. Just because he's a freeper of old, doens' make this right.

Puts me in mind of the old Russian sleepers that would live among us, like ordinary Americans, for years - until they got their assignment.

Baloney.

I was involved at all levels in the Republican Party process for several decades. And it’s now a completely rigged game. Totally sold out to the media and the money. We the People are nothing more than pawns.

Frankly, the presidential process in the two old parties is now more Soviet than American.

Depending on which state you live in, the individual choice between Romney and 0bama may be real, but the individual choice is swamped. If you live in NY or CA, then vote for whoever you want, 0bama is taking those Electoral College votes.

Other than making you feel good about yourself, what will it accomplish? I remember the Education Secretary under Clinton saying that self-actualization of the teachers trumped educating the kids - at least they could feel good about themselves even as they let the real goal drip down the drain. If feeling good about yourself is the most important thing, then you just go for it...

Obama Thanks you from the bottom of his heart.

He hopes you run a strong campaign and gets lots of votes.

Congratulations, Tom. Sadly, it never ceases to amaze me how many people on this small-government conservative website will take the time to denigrate a small-government conservative such as yourself.

Best wishes to you as always.

You sound like someone who may be struggling with feelings of shame about possibly voting for one of the liberals (Obama and Romney) who are running this year. You don't have to feel that way.

Tom Hoefling for President

You have a funny way of listening. Keep feeling good about yourself...

FYI...

It should be noted that while my friend J.D. Ellis of Tennessee was nominated for Vice-President by America’s Party in February, and will be running with me in all the states except California, the AIP in California chose to nominate someone else for that role.

His name is Dr. Robert Ornelas of Anaheim, CA.

I’m still getting to know him myself, so I haven’t made any public comments as yet, until this post.

But my brief conversations with Mr. Ornelas so far leave me deeply impressed with his principles and character.

And it appears that he may well be able to provide the opening into the Los Angeles area that we must have to really take it to Obama.
