Quote:An Iowa Republican has caused a stir after ending her run for state legislature, and then becoming a "senator" for a de facto shadow government known as the Republic for the United States of America.

The former candidate, Randi Shannon, defended the bizarre decision in an interview with FoxNews.com on Monday, and did her best to explain her reasons for doing so.

"I am one of many people so disgusted with the options out there," she said. "But the government we have has to go."

Organizers say the Republic for the United States of America was the original government in this country, before it was replaced 225 years ago by the "de facto corporation known as the United States."

She cited the growing size of government -- particularly "ObamaCare" -- as one of the biggest and most recent intrusions by "big government" into the lives of her family members and other Americans.

"If they could just stop doing this, we'd all be fine," Shannon said. "All I want is a private life, but they won't let us do that."

"I didn't expect this firestorm," she told FoxNews.com. "I'm just a normal person who wants to raise her kids. I'm not a limelight person."

It makes as much sense as taking away our freedom for our safety. What good is safety if we aren't free to enjoy it?

It's worthless. There are going to be sheep lining up to get into the "safety" of camp FEMA before too long, mark my words.

She's going to need it, in the same way as if I decided to quit this gig and run a shadow forum so secret it doesn't even have a web address. 13.gif
