Iowa GOP State Senate Candidate, Randi Shannon, Joins ‘Alternative’ U.S. Government

| by Michael Allen

Randi Shannon, a Republican state Senate candidate in Iowa, has decided to bow out of the race and become a U.S. senator of an alternative form of government.

In a letter released last Friday, Shannon told supporters about her new position as “U.S. Senator in the Republic of the united States of America,” a libertarian-leaning group.

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

Shannon claims the U.S. government has been acting unlawfully as the “official government, which clearly it is not!”

On its web site, the Republic of the united States of America claims it “re-inhabited” the government on March 30, 2010 and claims the “United States Corporation” unlawfully formed in 1871 without the American people’s consent.

In her announcement letter, Shannon outlined her political plans, which include abolishing the Department of Education, opposing unnecessary foreign wars, attacking government abuse, opposing invasive TSA screenings, Obamacare, and the 14th amendment of the corrupt “United States Corporation.”

Shannon told The Gazette: “If people think it’s crazy to want to have a constitutional government in place, then so be it."
