Through this organization and the use of social media, he has aimed to inspire those who no longer feel they can trust the mainstream media to become the media themselves.

    Lucky he made it clear he doesn’t have anything to do with that scary ‘S’ word.

  • Ittabena

    Well this is nice and I really do wish him luck, but Chicago? Really, Chicago? As an Illinois native who used to work for the Illinois Legislature, I have to say David could not have picked a better place for long odds. It is a running joke between me and my 91 year old mother that we have been waiting for an honest politician since Adlai Stevenson.

    Still I do hope he wins. Too bad he is not in Springfield, the capital. He could have had my whole family’s vote.

    I once thought “the system” could be reformed
    by electing people like David Earl Williams III
    but through experience & observation I’ve seen
    “the system” tends to reform the reformers into its image

    there’s an old Chinese proverb:
    A snake cannot travel without a head.
    maybe reform is not the answer

    • Ittabena

      Reminds me of a caution from Emile Bonhoeffer to his wife; “A dictatorship is like a snake, if you step on it’s tail, as you do, it will just bite you. You must strike at it’s head.” The quote is from memory so it might not be exact, but it’s pretty damn close.

  • Hadrian999

    another chicago politician, that’s exactly what the world needs

  • eric82

    (1) Why is he a “former” member, and, (2) can you be a “member” of a for-profit corporation like WRC?

    • Jin The Ninja

      love the ‘avatar’.

      is wac(ko) a for-profit entity?
      if so that takes my skepticism to an entirely new level.

      • Calypso_1

        For profit of the entity known as Luke Rudkowski.
        Do a little research into the donations & ‘leadership’ of this leaderless organization.

        • Jin The Ninja

          had never managed to quite type the words into google,
          call it complete lack of interest, investment (emotional or otherwise), or simply revulsion, not for the case it makes, but for the connections and conclusions it draws. or laziness, i’d be fine with any of the above:P

          but i just did so, and unsurprising at best.

          • Calypso_1

            revulsion works for me

      • eric82

        they’re also a little lazy in paying their NY corporations tax (via NY State Secretary of State website):

        Here’s some stuff from Cryptome on accounting irregularities:

        Fortunately they have free advertising via Disinfo, so losses in donor revenue can be mitigated through decreased operating expenses for promotions.

        • Calypso_1

          Obviously you are a shill for the Bilderbergs.

  • Jin The Ninja

    just read his website, totally anti-woman. how is limiting reproductive health and shilling misinformation about reproductive services conducive to a libertarian view of gov’t in the lives of everyday people?
    are women’s bodies not sovereign?

    • Chaorder Gradient

      because as soon as the word candidacy comes in, the word libertarian takes on a whole new definition.

      • Calypso_1

        He did say he wants to cut down on less criminal activity. A sound platform of free will & self-determination.
