Howell, MI – On Thursday September 5, 2013, Jim Fulner, an Engineer from Berkley, Michigan, announced his intention to seek the Libertarian nomination for U.S. Senate in 2014 at the Livingston County Libertarian Party affiliate meeting at Cleary’s Pub in Howell, MI.
Jim looks forward to promoting his unique brand of libertarianism to all Michigan residents in the coming year. Jim said that he is running for U.S. Senate,”…not to get a shiny badge to tell others how to run their life, but instead to educate Michiganders of the life we could have if we eliminated force for political and social gain.”
Jim looks to build on his successful run for U.S. House in 2012 and continue to both educate Michiganders on what a libertarian society would look like, while also giving his opponents the right answer on how they can lessen the ill effects of politicians on the people while we still live in an authoritarian society. Jim will promote the non-aggression principle for all: for protection of life from conception to natural death, even if you join the Army, and hopes to encourage individual who don’t want to wait for a libertarian society, to join with others in establishing an agorist community through the Free Detroit project.
Fulner said, “The election of 2014 is still a long ways away. Likely we will have competition from all over the political spectrum. In the marketplace of idea, as in all marketplaces, the more competitors you have, the better the end product will be for all.”
Jim Fulner has been a life long libertarian activist at the of age 30. He has been a member of the Libertarian Party since age 18. From caring for his family of three by avoiding government entanglements when possible, to his laissez-faire beard, Fulner bleeds libertarianism, and knows his campaign will be fun, “Because if you aren’t having fun, you’re doing it wrong”.
It may also be of interest note that the Fulner campaign already team includes several old and new LP members in prominent roles including: Scotty Boman, Campaign Manger; Jeff Wood , Treasurer; and Alex Fera, Information Officer.
