What if?

Muir Boda – Libertarian Candidate for Congress in Maryland’s 1st District

What if Congress was bought and sold by corporate interests?

What if tax loopholes and regulatory exemptions were bought and sold in the halls of Congress?

What if both major political parties have become so ineffective at addressing the issues of the day?

What if the Constitution was actually designed to restrict Government but we continue to elect people to Congress and the Presidency who ignore it?

What if our use of Drones kill more civilians than terrorists and creates more enemies for America?

What if Peace is cheaper than war? What if we had leaders that listened to and adhered to the guidance of our founders such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.

What if we elected people to Congress who actually believe our Government should be constrained inside the Constitution? What if those choices are actually on the ballot?

What if the private sector was freed from government regulations and an oppressive tax system? What if that actually created tens of millions of new jobs and made our manufacturing sector competitive with the rest of the world?

What if the 1st District of Maryland had someone else other than Andy Harris representing them in Congress who supports Civil Liberties? What if we had a Congressman that would have vehemently opposed the Patriot Act, The National Defense Authorization Act, CISPA and was not on the hook to special interest for hundreds of thousands of dollars?

What if that person was actually on the ballot? Well, I am.

A Busy Week for the Boda Campaign

Muir Boda – The Anti-Deficit Candidate

It has been a busy week for Muir Boda the Libertarian Candidate in Maryland’s 1st District.

On Wednesday, Muir Boda taped an interview with Phil Tilghman on PAC 14’s “One on One” which will air the week of October 1st. Issues discussed were fiscal responsibility at the federal level, baseline budgeting, ending the War on Drugs and several other issues.

On Thursday Muir went to Chestertown, MD and taped an interview on WCTR (1530 AM and 102.3 FM in Kent and Queen Anne’s County) with Keith Thompson. The issues discussed were fiscal responsibility, ballot access and other issues. Once the interview is available on their Podcast, we will post it here.

From there Muir traveled to Harford Community Community College in Bel Air, Maryland for a District 1 and District 2  Congressional Candidate Forum hosted by The League of Women’s Voters. Write-In Candidate Democrat Dr. John LaFerla was present which allowed for District 1 Candidates to participate. Incumbent Republican Congressman Andy Harris failed to appear, as did Write-In Candidates Doug Rae and Michael Calpino. The forum was broadcast and recorded by the Harford Cable Network.

And finally, Muir completed an interview with LP.org about his campaign and the unique factor that he is on the ballot with just a Republican, as the Democrat has withdrawn. This will be featured on the LP Blog in the near future and will garner more attention to this race and his campaign. Not that it hasn’t already received that.

A good week and it is only going to get busier.

Reject the two party system, Be Libertarian

With recent events in the 1st District Congressional race leaving only two legitimate candidates on the ballot, incumbent Republican Andy Harris, and myself, many feel that the race is over and that Congressman Harris is all but assured a second term. So confident he does not see the need to show up at scheduled forums, which he had previously agreed to attend.

Harris has more money, an entrenched political machine, staff, volunteers and consultants.

So you may ask, who do you have Boda? The answer is you.

Congressman Harris represents the PACs, the bundlers and the establishment and the over $1 Million he has raised for this campaign.

I represent you.

We have an opportunity in this election to send a message to the Establishment of both parties. You can tell them that you will no longer continue to waste your vote on deficit spending, increasing the National Debt, never ending wars and the constant growth of government involvement in our lives.

Join me and reject the two party system. For one election Be Libertarian with me. If after one term you feel I do not represent you, then you can always vote Harris or another Democrat back in office.

If I am elected and all of my concerns about debt, war, civil liberties and the need for reform in Medicare and social security are unfounded, what happens? Nothing.

If I am not elected and there is nobody to voice these concerns and they are true, what happens? Nothing good.

Muir Boda Press Release on Rep. Andy Harris withdrawing from the Debates

Muir Boda for Congress Press Release

+++++++++++++
Subject: Andy Harris refuses to debate Libertarian Muir Boda
+++++++++++++

Salisbury, MD: Today we received a message from Alan Girard, the Eastern Shore Director of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, concerning the cancellation of the September 24th Candidate forum at Salisbury University. In an attached press release it mentioned that they had learned that Republican Congressman Andy Harris had “decided to pull out of all debates this election season”. This came in the wake of the voter fraud scandal that saw the resignation of Democrat Wendy Rosen.

Obviously Congressman Harris was looking for any opportunity to not have to face voters and Libertarian Muir Boda who stated, “After observing the withdrawal of Democrat Wendy Rosen from the race amid voter fraud allegations, I had not anticipated another action of disrespect to the voters in the 1st District. Congressman Harris’ actions are simply arrogant cowardice as he is obviously afraid to debate me.”

Boda continued, “Congressman Harris’ pulling out of all forums is a complete slap in the face to all the voters and the organizations that are taking their time to organize the forums by securing a place to have the forum, organizing resources to record the forums and to the those who desired to attend and to participate in the discussion of the future of our country.

Congressman Harris has many questions to answer. For instance, we need an explanation on why, as a so called fiscal conservative he would support adding another $1 Trillion to our national debt. Or where does he really stand on the TSA, the Patriot Act and the NDAA.”
