So, You Want to Run for Office...Part 1

By Matt Robbins, National Executive Director
Many new activists and groups are fuzzy on exactly how to go about becoming the next crop of liberty-minded leaders. Where and how should you begin considering a run for office? When do you decide it's YOU that should step forward? Putting your name on the ballot involves enormous sacrifice, followed only in magnatude of difficulty by the actual job of becoming a public servant... that is, IF you win a campaign.

In the spirit of "stacking the deck" with right-thinking, credable, competent candidates, here are some short cuts that can allow for a rolling start should you decide to throw your name in the proverbial hat. 

First, get a political lay of the land. Look for open seats! If you live in a state where there are term limits at the state legislative level, an open seat is the best opportunity for a new, solid candidate. So do your homework in a term limited state (compile a list of all open seats coming up) and find out which seats are open in 2012.

Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development is racing across
the nation as citizens in community after community are learning what
their city planners are actually up to. As awareness grows, I am
receiving more and more calls for tools to help activists fight back.
Many complain that elected officials just won't read detailed reports
or watch long videos. "Can you give us something that is quick, and
easy to read that we can hand out," I'm asked.
