I've been most pleased to hear the various reactions from folks who manage to find my website -- tricky business for sure, given that the Utah media is doing a superb job of comprehensively snuffing me and other third parties.

::::::::


Rocky Anderson by online


Some comments were admittedly "commandeered," as should be obvious, but I believe all those below are in line what what I'm advocating. 

"I have recently come to know the beautiful work/passion/ideals of Dan Geery. His vision, as set forth on his website, would do much to lead us to a world based on Truth, Integrity, and Love... and wouldn't that be nice!" -- Allan Silberhartz, founder/ host award-winning, spiritual talk show, Bridging Heaven & Earth; attorney, financial consultant.   

"Just read through Daniel Geery's political page. He is a breath of fresh air in the political arena. The time is definitely ripe for 3rd parties... and what could be better than his Justice Party!" -- Marcy Klingel, Environmental Coordinator, MERC

"Your position on current issues is remarkable -- the first candidate I have encountered that thinks and speaks coherently about what to do to change course in finding solutions to misguided policies. I commend your boldness, clarity, integrity, and for using your intelligence not for personal gain, but for the benefit of man/womenkind. I will share your comments, your candidacy with my friends and contacts. You are, for me, even more thorough and explicit than my favorite politicians, Dennis Kucinich and Allen Grayson." -- Levi Yoder

"Thank you for such a refreshing campaign. It feels like you have great reverence to nature, my favorite special interest. I will do what I can to link people to your website." -- Marshall Everson

"I agree with Daniel. Initiate and complete a comprehensive review of the circumstances that led to and caused the horrors of 9/11, answering major questions that have not yet been answered...would be a good idea." -- Nancy Karter, Rocky Anderson Campaign

"Dan's political platform comments exude common sense combined with good intention. Both are sorely missing in today's world... When a candidate states: 'I also promise to donate a third of my salary -- your taxes -- to a worthwhile cause in Utah -- you know he's headed in the right direction! Geery's company, http://www.hyperblimp.com, is actively doing R and D on a new design that should soon rock the aviation world (to some extent, they already have, though they are still largely "under the radar" of public consciousness)." -- Jim Welch, Marine Environmental Research Corporation

"Dan Geery is a man of tremendous passion and commitment to the highest ideals. He knows that the political duopoly of the two dominant parties has led to a corrupt system from which those parties thrive. He is committed to work in the public interest by fighting for public financing of campaigns, a constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United, and free and equal time for qualified candidates on the people's airwaves.   Send an important message by casting your vote in opposition to corruption in Washington and for Dan Geery, a man of real integrity." -- Rocky Anderson, U.S. Presidential Candidate, Justice Party  

"If you really could get elected without one donation, it would send a shock wave around the entire planet. Your platform is the only chance our country and planet has to survive. If there is anything I can do to help from Illinois , let me know." -- Steven Finnegan

My Reply : "Thank you kindly, Steven. Yes, there is something everyone who likes the ideas on the homepage can, and I believe must, do: Namely, spread the word. Click "Like," Tweet, and send emails to folks who may likewise spread the word; quote my site freely, regularly and often wherever online comments are possible, tying a paragraph or even a few sentences into particular relevant articles. Utah newspapers are a great place to do this, but so too are larger sites, such as Opednews, Common Dreams, Alternet.org, Raw Story, TruthDig, Yes!, and so on. Let people know about my platforms, along with the Justice Party and   Rocky Anderson's Presidental Run. Encourage readers to vote for any Justice Party Candidate who may show up on their ballot. Try to bring a few friends to the polls in November, particularly for me if you live in Utah (Rocky will be on the polls in many states, though not necessarily on the JP ticket)." --Daniel Geery    

"I visited your website and was awed by your platform and principles, and equally amazed by your biography. Thank you for having the courage to run for public office, and dedicating yourself to the difficult task of working to transform this country which has so tragically lost its way. I can tell you are a person of real integrity. I encourage anyone... to visit your website. The vision you lay out for a new direction for this country is what all of us long for in our heart of hearts, and I think you know a little bit about hearts. Best of luck with your campaign and with all your endeavors." -- Ronnie Roberts, retired teacher

"Excellent website, excellent principles, and excellent tone. If I lived in Utah I would vote for you." -- Tom Carberry, Criminal Defense Attorney, "Defending People Against the American Police State"

"Glad I found your site and learning what you are trying to do. Even though many good people with ideals like yours could help make a sensible difference in politics and the planet, they are too entrenched by circumstances to 'activate' that life, I want you to know that just by reading all your excellent ideas and heartfelt feelings of common sense, you motivate and turn a 'gear' in the heads of many that someday will cause us to act in the 'common goods' behalf, sooner than later. Thanks, keep it up, and good luck. I will let people know of your quest by all means." -- Jerry Redpath, Medical Research Tech, Parent

Below -- from those who have gone before -- but whose comments are still pertinent, even critical...

"A man never stands so tall as when he leans over to help a child." -- Abe Lincoln

"Enlighten the people generally and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like spirits at the dawn of day." -- Thomas Jefferson

"Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others..." -- Albert Einstein

"We have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us. And that requires that we make the effort to know the world and learn what is good for it." --Wendell Berry

"Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer in his lifetime for the good of the community." -- Andrew Carnegie

"The greatest purveyor of violence in the world is my own government." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.

"All wars are follies, very expensive, and mischievous." -- Benmamin Franklin

In my run for U.S. Senate against Utah's Orrin Hatch, I posted many progressive ideas and principles that I internalized over the years. I'm leaving that site up indefinitely, since it describes what I believe most members of our species truly want: (more...)
