I like the idea of retiring Pelosi :-)

He's a politician, is he saying what he means ?

John Dennis for Congress

Dear Fellow Concerned American:

I want to remind you of the scariest words in Washington - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. If that name still causes you to squirm, get angry and grind your teeth, then keep reading.

Like you, I’m tired of waking up every day to see Nancy Pelosi and her cronies work to fulfill the agenda of Barack Obama without regard for how it chips away at our national sovereignty, undermines our national economy and mortgages our children’s future. As a father, I’m worried about how their actions will impact my daughter, your children and future generations of Americans.

My concerns for our nation's welfare are not strictly based on my affiliation with the Republican Party, but as a father, small business owner and patriotic American. I'm concerned that we continue to lose our rights and liberties daily as Washington politicians, led by Speaker Pelosi, want to force us to submit to socialism.

I'm a proud American who wants our nation to succeed in the vision of our Founding Fathers and refuses to see it continue down this wayward course of a death spiral.

That's why I'm running for Congress against Nancy Pelosi.

You may think that a campaign of this nature is a lofty, unrealistic goal, but I believe that during these difficult economic times, the people of California's 8th Congressional District deserve a Congressman who will represent their interests and that of America. In fact, I'm so confident that I can win this race for several reasons, that I've seeded the campaign with my hard-earned savings before I asked anyone for a dollar.

Just a few weeks ago, Nancy Pelosi was quoted in the venerable, inside-the-beltway newspaper, The Hill, stating, "I'm in campaign mode."

Well, I can't imagine why any Member of Congress, let alone the Speaker of the House would feel the need to boast about being in campaign mode, unless we were giving her a reason to worry. I think the people of the 8th District are starting to feel like the rest of my campaign team and America—it's time for Nancy to RETIRE!

After all, millions of patriotic Americans have refused to remain quite while Pelosi's Congress files bill after bill seeking to strip us of our individual liberties. Fortunately, there are still some of us who know what individual liberty, limited government, and the free markets mean to the success of this great Republic.

That's why I need your help to ensure we get this message out to tens of thousands of voters in this district as well as to the millions of liberty-loving Americans who want Nancy Pelosi to retire. Will you please contribute to the fund to retire Nancy Pelosi by supporting my campaign TODAY?

Every day, millions of Americas are now waking up to these realities and are ready to join us in taking back OUR government. It starts by removing those in power who are more concerned with their stranglehold on power, than their oath to OUR Constitution.

While the dollar has weakened over 35%, destroying our nation's purchasing power and savings, Pelosi and her cronies were seeking ways through Pelosicare and other initiatives, to tax my daughter and future generations of Americans into lifelong debt.

The Federal government spends relentlessly, starting with Pelosi's rides on private Gulftstream jets and fresh flowers for her office, while Americans starved, unemployment now exceeds 10% and law-abiding citizens went without proper medical care.

We continue to send troops in harm's way, in a muddled, unconstitutional nation-building morass, with no end in sight. Simultaneously, Pelosi takes lead from President Obama, and the European NGO's in attempt to commit our wealth, unconstitutionally, to a tax scheme for the World Bank and IMF.

Nancy Pelosi rams health care "reform" legislation down our throats that will only worsen a problem and increase healthcare rationing, with a projection of costs that grows exponentially on a daily basis. The problem was first, CAUSED by the government, and will NEVER be solved by the government.

In spite of all of the bad news, I see signs of hope.

Activism and peaceful protests against all of the Federal government's shenanigans are increasing. We must use this energy to beat back Nancy Pelosi and force her into retirement..

My lifelong experiences in life, international business, and civic involvement have prepared me to go to Washington and unwind that mess. I've already spent time meeting with international businessman, leaders and understand the global impact we have on other nations.

Our campaign to retire Nancy Pelosi is a personal one.

After all, the welfare of my daughter, your children and grandchildren are at stake. We cannot allow Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and their Democratic machine to strip us of our individual liberties while they continue to increase our national debt and jeopardize our national security.

The repercussions are unimaginable!

Our campaign is breaking new ground daily. We've already received endorsements that reflect the uniting force of liberty, as well as demonstrate our ability to win.

That's right – I said win.

So please join the campaign and help in any way you can. Please follow this link to make a generous contribution of $25, $50, $100, $250 or any amount you can afford to give. The federal maximum contribution is $2400 per person, but any amount is appreciated.

Remember, the money we raise won't match Pelosi's war chest or the support she'll receive from PACs and K Street lobbyists, but I know your support comes with the energy of liberty-loving Americans who are ready to take back control of the Congress.

Together we can retire Nancy Pelosi this coming November! Thank you.

Yours in liberty,

John Dennis

Candidate for Congress
California's 8th Congressional District

P.S.This is your moment to decide the very future of this country and our national sovereignty! Pelosi will have a coalition of unions, pharmaceutical companies and other special interest groups funding her campaign in an effort to keep her where they need her—in the Speaker's Chair. That's why I need your immediate support TODAY. Please follow this link to make your contribution of $25, $50, $100 or $250 right away. Thank you.

Nope. Hain't gonna happen.

In SF? No way. Overall MA population for a Senate race is much more conservative than SF area voting population for a Congressional seat.

No Republican, let alone one that's involved with real estate/rental properties will get elected in SF area. If Pelosi on her worst day were to be replaced with someone, it'd be a Greenie.

Mr. Dennis has just helpfully offered himself up as a ritual abuse absorber: the Republicans have to run a 'placeholder' just so Pelosi has to exert some efforts and spend some cash and not be unopposed on the ballot.

The problem with getting Pelosi out of office is that even when she's out of office she's not gone. When politicians like her are ousted, they have a nasty habit of becoming annoying lobbyists. She's annoying now, but I fear she'll get even *more* annoying when she's out.

That said, she still needs to be booted out with a quickness. That woman is evil incarnate.

No way, she won't lose in SF. Not a chance. Remember, San Fransisco is the epicenter for socialists, liberals, haters of the Constitution, anti-Americans, and those who generally stand for evil, immorality, and social decay. Pelosi is the Mother Ship. Mr. Dennis is asking the people of San Franpsycho to be patriotic? To be principled? To have respect for our Founding Fathers, our Constitution, the family, or capitalism? To say 'no' to Pelosi and her agenda? Thats gonna be one very heavily piss-soaked rope.

Agreed he has no chance of winning, but if he manages to get 40% of the vote or more THAT would pretty much be a victory.

Interesting,

This may serve as a test to see what percentage of the residents there are actually left winged dingbats. I don't expect a conservative to actually win, but it would be nice to know how lopsided the numbers are. I would suspect that a fair number of people will vote conservative, just not enough to unseat the "princess". It should be obvious that the most radical are always the most vocal, just look at our side if you don't believe me. So the question is what are the numbers in THE most progressive city in the country. Wouldn't it be encouraging if she could only carry that cesspool of a city by a couple of points.

Poll after poll after poll shows Americans are dissatisfied with Congress/D.C. but satisfied with their own congress critter, or at least satisfied enough that said critter gets sent back to D.C. every two years. The lines are drawn to help this happen. Pelosi just isn't vulnerable to a challenger, especially a republican challenger, and in SF no less. She may well lose leadership of her party but that's up to her colleagues in the House.

A more interesting challenge for Pelosi would come from her own party from somebody greener or somebody saner. Sheehan and her ilk don't cut it. Add that Pelosi is Speaker and you're asking a lot of voters to take someone they've been voting for and largely happy with for years and cut her off at the knees.

Here's the results from 2008:

California's 8th congressional district election, 2008 Party Candidate Votes Percentage
Democratic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Democratic_Party) Nancy Pelosi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Pelosi) (incumbent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incumbent)) 204,996 71.87%
Independent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independent_%28politician%29) Cindy Sheehan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cindy_Sheehan) 46,118 16.17%
Republican (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Republican_Party) Dana Walsh 27,614 9.68%
Libertarian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarian_Party_of_California) Philip Berg 6,504 2.28%
Independent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independent_%28politician%29) Lea Sherman (write-in (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Write-in_candidate)) 11 0.00%
Independent (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Independent_%28politician%29) Michelle Clay (write-in) 4 0.00% Totals 285,247 100.00% Voter turnout 73.15%

Do you really think a republican has a chance? Do you think the Sheehan voters will cross over? Do you think a mass of invested life long liberal democrats are going to all of the sudden vote republican?

It's far better to focus efforts on winnable seats. Take back the House and Pelosi becomes irrelevant. Closing the gap might be enough to cost her the Speakership.

In a city where an un-American piece of crackpot crap like Cindy Sheehan pulls a solid 6% point lead over the Republican, you really think a Republican has a snowball's chance in hell? San Fransicko is ground-zero for the most disgusting and pathetic of all Americans. Pelosi represents them perfectly. She will not be leaving Congress.

It's far better to focus efforts on winnable seats. Take back the House and Pelosi becomes irrelevant. Closing the gap might be enough to cost her the Speakership.

Exactly right. Can't get her out of Congress, but we can force her to sit down and shut up.

Just an FYI, this is exactly what I thought about Scott Brown's chances 3 weeks before the special election here in MA.

But a grass-roots movement that started on forums just like this one got the momentum going and ultimately made history.

Also, referencing 2008 election results is meaningless. See link below.
http://www.boston.com/news/politics/2008/election_results/ma_president/

My point here is don't give up. Keep fighting the good fight. Donate, volunteer, do what it takes to get Pelosi out.

If Fat Ted's Senate seat can be lost to a Republican, any seat anywhere in this country can be lost.

If Fat Ted's Senate seat can be lost to a Republican, any seat anywhere in this country can be lost.

A statewide election for a Senate seat is vastly different than an election for a House seat in a gerrymandered district. The 2008 numbers are telling in that an absolute kook polled higher than the republican candidate. Thousands of democrats, San Francisco democrats at that, won't all of the sudden ditch their incumbent House speaker for a republican. Remember that her district might well turn out for her as an F-You to those denouncing San Francisco values.

Grass roots is great, but again, it's easier to build a critical mass in a statewide election. How many posters on this forum actually live in Pelosi's district? I'd wager that most of them aren't Pelosi supporters. We're largely preaching to the choir here as far as Pelosi goes.

Any money donated to her nominal opposition is money better spent in a district where the registration numbers are closer and Obama and even Pelosi poll lower. Obama won on increased turnout that went his way. Many of those voters will sit out a boring midterm election with no rockstar flavor of the month Chicago hack. Resources need to be leveraged where they'll do the most good. Reducing Pelosi's margin of victory in her district from 70-30 to 60-40 is the lamest of moral victories. I'd much rather reduce her majority in the House and take a shot at taking back the House.

Welcome John and good for you to run against Nancy Pelosi.

John may not win against Pelosi, but he will give Nancy Pelosi something she hasn't had in awhile, a challenger.

The fact that Nancy Pelosi will have to fight in her own district will send a message to the rest of Congress.

Our opponents will pour their resources to save Nancy Pelosi, even if it means they sacrifice 20 or more other Congressmen in the process.

For every dollar John spends, Nancy will probably spend 20 to 50 dollars.

If John pulls and upset, it would send shock waves through Washington.
This is the one Congress race they can't hide.

A "Social Conservative" won't win, but a pragmatic Libertarian which John is will pull numbers.

San Fran has high population density, that means voters are easier to reach on things like precinct walks.

I assume John is running on a Ron Paul type platform of PEACE, PROSPERITY and FREEDOM.

The issues in San Fran will be our foreign WARS, the DRUG WAR, all Gay issues and yes, the Federal deficit and high taxes.

John won't be carrying the baggage of being a "Social Conservative" which would doom his campaign in San Francisco.

If things are handled correctly, Nancy Pelosi will be on the Wrong side of the issue for most San Francisco voters.

I contacted John's campaign and am working on putting together a fundraiser shoot and when successful, more will be done.

Many of you have expressed we should do "Open carry Marches" in San Francisco. When we have incorporation and we get the Green light from the right people, I am sure John will work with us on this.

Now for you naysayers, I checked John's site a few days ago and he had already raised 76 thousand dollars.

Back in 92 and 94 a late friend of mine Bob Wick ran against Norm Mineta. Norm won his seat both times, but we estimate it cost him at least 1 million per race.

Bob spent around 15 K in each race. Bob's campaign consisted of only a few of us, we never had more than 10 people.

We got 32 and 38 percent of the vote respectively in those races and that was with being BLACK LISTED by the local Santa Clara Republican party.

The Pelosi race will catch attention nationwide, so many people actually hate Pelosi that they would support anybody against Nancy Pelosi.

This is where things get fun.

John Dennis is a serious candidate and I would like to make the following proposal.

Those of us who are in the Bay Area donate say 100 dollars and 8 hours of time to his campaign.

Right now John Dennis is just short of 100K. Once he hits 100,000 dollars, more donations will start coming in.

With Congress's approval rating at 18 percent, incumbency could actually be a liablity.

If John Dennis raises 1 million dollars, and he has an army of Conservative/libertarian volunteers from all over the Bay area, it means that Nancy is in deep trouble.

John Dennis all the way.

The only gun-rights supporting candidate that would have a snow-ball's chance in hell of defeating any democrat in SF is a libertarian. But even then without supporting entitlements for lazy jerks it would never happen in that town. We're better off praying for SF to fall into the bay.

Still if the repubs can get a majority in the house it still means the end of pelosi's tenure as speaker of the house and that is just as good as getting her out of office IMO. So I think efforts would be better awarded in other districts not only around our state but in the nation as well.

When in Rome...OK, pro-gun Libertarian who supports entitlements. I've had worse assignments...OK, the first gun is issued to each resident by the city, and subsequent guns receive a sliding discount based on ability-to-pay. Also, residents receive an ammo coupon each month. On other issues, the city will offer free business grants for starting new businesses, so everyone can try being a capitalist.

To pay for it all, since taxes are bad, SF will simply tax those dirty lackeys of the landlord class in Orange County.

Sad to say, tht's probably *exactly* what Libertarian means in SF. :chris:

Very similar things were said and followed in the MA special election. The RNC did dick to get Brown elected. They only started throwing $$ and support his way AFTER he started surging.

MA has a Democrat governor, Our Lt. Gov. and AG are Democrat (both seperate electable positions), 89% of the State Legislature is Democrat, ALL of our reps to Congress are Democrats, and until about 10 days ago both of US Senators were Democrats. State wide election in MA = local election.

I am not dumb enough to say that the MA statewide electorate is as liberal as SF, but then again I am not familiar enough with that particular district, so I will defer to you on that.

My only point was to never give up, never say uncle. 2010 is going to be a tough year for Democrats. If there was ever a time to get Pelosi out, it is now.

Reducing Pelosi's margin of victory in her district from 70-30 to 60-40 is the lamest of moral victories.

A 60-40 race may cause Pelosi to get up off her duff and spend some $$ to get re-elected draining Dem coughers, where as a 70-30 election won't.
