Stan Jones on Principles & Values

 


Bush has committed many impeachable offenses

Q: Do you believe that Pres. Bush has committed impeachable offenses?

TESTER: I think it's a bit premature to say that there should be impeachment proceedings against Pres. Bush. I do think there will be public hearings, and I think that's critically important. If impeachable offenses are found, then so be it. I think we need to focus on the issues I hear about from the people of this great state. We've got a system that's broken right now, and needs to be fixed, and it needs some leadership back in Washington DC. The current cast isn't getting it done.

JONES: Yes, Pres. Bush has committed many impeachable offenses. He has issued executive orders that have the force and effect of law, when he has no constitutional authority to issue laws. Pres. Bush pushed the Patriot Act and other bills that have been just as threatening to our freedom. This man has to be impeached in order to preserve our freedoms. We have to impeach this man to let these people know they cannot do that to our freedoms.

I am not a politician, I'm a leader

I'm proud to say that I am not a politician, I'm a leader. Those who say that I am unqualified because I lack political experience are wrong. The greatest perversion of our government is the "professional politicians" who worry about their own political futures instead of the future of the people of Montana.

Our founders' intent was to provide a mechanism that would allow the Citizenry to be represented best by one of their own, not an elitist. I am not an elitist politician; I am one of the people.

Dedicated to government of principle, not special interests

As a Libertarian, I am dedicated to a government of principle. Special interest decisions have no place in government. I will never sacrifice political expediency for constitutional principle. If elected, I will not be contaminated by political success. Instead, I will work to clarify and purify the political process.

Argyria condition results from overuse of colloidal silver

Starting in 1999, Montana native Stan Jones drank colloidal silver daily, believing it to be a natural antibiotic which would save him from the forecasted Y2K disaster, with its exploding toilets, scant antibiotics, and menacing clouds of anthrax. Jones would later emerge transformed from his sun-dappled home on the Gallatin River, entering the 2002 Montana senate race as the first blue Libertarian candidate.

Soon Jones was making Oddly Enough... headlines across the country, as both a Baucus for a Senate seat in November's mid-term elections. He made the solution by electrically charging two silver wires in a glass of water. "People ask me if it's permanent and if I'm dead," he a news agency. "I tell them I'm practising for Halloween."

Colloidal silver is marketed as an anti-bacterial agent or immune-system booster. It was offered as a treatment for illnesses such as anthrax following bio-terror alerts in the US last year. But there is no scientific proof of its efficacy.

Yes, his skin really is blue, and it's permanent

A US Senate hopeful in the state of Montana has a bad case of the blues after years of drinking a home-made silver solution for medical reasons. Libertarian candidate Stan Jones first discovered his skin was turning blue last year. He began taking colloidal silver in 1999 amid fears that disruptions caused by the millennium bug might lead to a shortage of antibiotics. His condition, known as argyria, is not serious [but is permanent].

Jones is one of three candidates challenging Democrat Max Q: Do you believe that Pres. Bush has committed impeachable offenses?
