This is the best news I have heard in a long time. Matt Burden, of milblog Blackfive fame, is one of my favorite people. He is passionate about his country’s future, but is also always thoughtful and reasonable. He is entering a new phase of service now.
For more than 20 years, I’ve served my country, fighting to protect and preserve the American freedoms, rights, and values that make this country great, first as an Airborne Soldier – and then as one of the leaders of the Internet political revolution that has held arrogant and corrupt leaders accountable from city halls all the way to Washington D.C.
After much thought and one helluva exploratory committee, the green light is on and I’m ready – I have decided to run for office. I will change Illinois’ political landscape and culture of corruption. But I can’t do it without your help.Please help Matt. He is one of the good guys. He has shown his commitment to his country time and time again, and soon, hopefully, he will be allowed to show that commitment through service to his congressional district. Matt is asking for a mere $10 to help him in his run. If you can, please send some love his way.
