On Tuesday, November 25, 2019, Shane Hazel announced his campaign for the U.S. Senate.
He’s running as a Libertarian against incumbent Senator David Perdue and whoever comes out as the victor in the Democrat primary.
Hazel is positioning himself as the anti-military intervention and anti-central banking candidate.
In a news release, he stated: “My mission is to bring people together while preserving the freedom of every individual, regardless of skin color, age, faith, gender, love and every other nuance which make us unique. We must come together and remove the government/corporate cabals from the lives of peaceful people here in the US and around the world. It’s time to #EndTheWars, #EndTheFed & and long past time to #EndTheEmpire.”
Perdue currently has a failing, F, Constitutional voting record with a shocking 57% from the New American, Freedom Index. Worse he’s also one of the top spenders in the US Senate per spendingtracker.org. I don’t think Perdue is corrupt, I just don’t think he’s ever been exposed to the ideas of Austrian Economics, The Non-aggression principle or the writings & conditions of the Anti-Federalist in accepting the Federalist’s Constitution.
The Libertarian Party of Georgia opined on Hazel’s candidacy for Georgia’s Senate seat: “We’re excited to have Shane Hazel running for U.S. Senate on a platform of peace, liberty & free markets. When a Marine tells you about the waste and horror of war, hear him. When a father warns that inflation and debt will bury the next generation, listen. When a fierce defender of the Constitution points to tyranny at home and abroad, don’t look away. Donate a few dollars to help sustain Shane’s efforts and spread the message. He’s starting brushfires of liberty all the way to the GPB debate stage and he’ll need our help.”
Hazel hosts and produces The Rebellion Podcast. He and his co-host, Banks Wise, who is currently Matt Gurtler’s campaign manager, talk about all sorts of political topics and interview a wide range of guests from elected officials to candidates.
This is Hazel’s second attempt at running for Congress. He previously ran in Georgia’s 7th Congressional District against Republican Rob Woodall.
