I did submit some information to the Patch about myself, and I also have a campaign page on Facebook(Keith R Deschler for Congress- Libertarian). I had a nice write-up in the Friday Janesville Gazette, that I posted to both my Congress and Saving America pages on Facebook. Project Vote Smart will be up soon on my Congress race. The issues for me are balancing the budget now, with substantial across the board reductions in wasteful spending; phasing out the income tax and replacing it with the FairTax; far less job killing regulations, including the total repeal of ObamaCare; more state control and personal health care choice by block granting Medicare and Medicaid to the states; and encouraging personal savings with an interest-bearing prebate savings account which returns federal sales tax paid up to the poverty line, and can be added to by employers and employees. I am fiscally prudent, socially tolerant, and personally responsible. I will put the link to the Janesville story on this comment page, if you would like.

On the ballot for the Presidency, Gov. Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green). Make a special note to remember to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1

I will try to get that debate on my campaign sites. More because of Gary Johnson, but all four of these candidates are skeptical of overseas empire building, civil liberties violations at home, the federal reserve, corporate welfare....a lot of agreement, but also some major differences between the theocratic Constitution Party's Goode, Libertarian Johnson, and two left-leaning "progressives" ( Green and the new Justice party, with Jill Stein and Rocky Anderson).
