Dear Sirs,

 

I am seeking to become the first elected Libertarian to the Congress of the United States. This will enable me to help mightily to restore the Constitution of the United States and libertarian principles of life, liberty, justice and peace. I want to impeach Barack Obama for treason, murder and other war crimes and destruction of the Constitution in order to establish a dictatorship. I want to lead the effort to end the depression, prevent World War III and stop the police state by strict application of libertarian principles and a return to constitutionally limited government. My fifty years of study of honest history, libertarian economics and understanding of human nature, plus all of my activities in the Libertarian Party, the John Birch Society and numerous other patriotic, proliberty organizations make me the most qualified candidate in my race.

 

For life, liberty, justice and peace,
David Macko
