Comgrats!!! I wish we lived in the same area. I would tell everyone all about you. I wish you the best of luck. I hope you win. I really hope that when you do, others like you will follow suit. America desperately needs people that run simply because they want to help other Americans. It's so rare these days.

Anything I can do to help, just ask.

Looking forward to how you get "treated" in the MSM.

Are you prepared for a smear campaign against you if an opponent is "popular" in certain spheres ?

😎best of luck😎


I think I am ready for a smear campaign, but is anyone really?

I know who I am, and my friends and family do as well. I wont be intimidated to not run, although the its not easy.

Its a sad state of affairs when smear campaigns can keep good people from running.

But i think I will be ok.

My big issue is I am poor and have no connections. I get grumpy noises often when I tell people I am refusing to take money from businesses, and will only take individual contributions. However, they perk up a little when I tell them I also will not be accepting any sort of pension,...


So you want to be a politician but you don't like money ???


Im a capitalist, I like money.

But running for office shouldnt be for personal gain, it should be a service.

Trust me, it would be great to love off the tax payer dime the rest of my life if I win.

But my integrity is worth more than the monet to me.

Why should the tax payer pay me more for being a congressman the rest of my life than a soldier who fought for the country, or the famrer that helped feed the country, etc.

I will be compensated by the tax payer while I am serving, that is more than enough.

I do have a campaign facebook page. I will be looking into other options very shortly as well.

I am trying to use social media and other connections to help run a cheaper, more grassroots campaign.

One thing I am doing is starting tomorrow I am getting in touch with every student run GO[P group in the district, and seeing what help they can offer. I am trying to have the republican party reach demographics like young people they have traditionally not been very successful in reaching.

Embarrassment?!

Dude, you post here.

When they hit your social media history ... look out!
He posts, and responds on very questionable topics with some questionable answers.


Grambler, what is your educational background? What kind of work do you do?


Masters degree in speech communication.

I was one of the first people ever from a state school to qualify for the national debate tournament.

I have argued policy successfully with some of the smartest minds at universities. And even some of the smartest minds on ATS.

I currently work in the home hgealth care field with people with intellectual disabilities.

Your probably right about using my real name on ats.

But I had done so even before I ran, and so there is no use hiding it.

The reason I decided to use my real name on social media is that I am tired of the online mon forcing people into silence.

The chances of me winning are very slim, I know that. But I want to run a campaign with intergrity, and that means being totally honest about who i am.

And so I put my name out months ago on my youtube channel that I show on ATS, and there is no looking back now.

That makes one of us. My Monet is certainly worth more than my integrity but the painting was stolen from the Louvre so it kinda killed my integrity when I took it.

You should have your campaign supporters wear glue on beards to your rallies. It can be your 'thing'.


Hunter s thompson once ran for office.

His opponent had short hair, so Thompson shaved his head completely bald and called his opponent "My long haired opponent" the entire campaign.

Perhaps my opponents will be my clean shaven opponents.

Reading between the lines, I think you just sexually harassed him. I'm a witness, but I'm sure if the past is any indication, my silence could be bought.

Good luck Grambler.

Why did the last guy quit?

Congratulations! So excited for you and this great adventure.

Though not as coservative as you, I would vote for you in a heartbeat.

You are the real deal. Your morality, convictions and intelligence will carry you far.

I do watch your youtube. This is really going to be a trip for all your fans. Can't wait.

Just remember- stay away from the female interns.

I wish you the best of luck. I always look forward to your posts and YouTube break-down videos on the topics that plague us these days. I think you would make an excellent representative. I hope you get past those starting hurdles.
