Fed-up Marine has guns blazing to oust Democrats
'They're destroying this nation, and while I'm still breathing, I will not let it happen'

Jesse Kelly, a U.S. Marine from Arizona running for Congress displays a photo of himself serving in Iraq as part of his fundraising campaign.

"Send a warrior to Congress."

"Does this look like a Rino?"

In the battleground of American political power, candidates for office tend to use every weapon at their disposal to be heard above the din.

Now, a U.S. Marine who helped lead the initial charge into Iraq to oust Saddam Hussein is taking that approach literally by brandishing his M-16 assault rifle in some eye-catching campaign fundraising ads.

"I'm taking full credit for that," says 28-year-old Jesse Kelly of Tucson, Ariz., a Republican seeking to boot Democrat Gabrielle Giffords from the U.S. House of Representatives. "If you're not going to get anyone's attention, you might as well not waste your time or money."

Sgt. Kelly, who is married and has a 9-month-old son, is splashing his spots across the Internet on high-profile sites such as the Drudge Report, and offering no apologies about the weapon imagery.

"I think people understand fully well that I'm serving my country," he said. "I'm in Iraq at war for my nation. I'm not posing in my bedroom with a gun."

Get the prescription for reclaiming America's heritage of liberty, justice and morality – Joseph Farah's "Taking America Back," autographed only at the WND Superstore.

To date, the former infantryman says he's collected about $100,000, expecting to need up to $1.5 million to win the race.

Another campaign ad for Jesse Kelly shows him on active duty while serving as a U.S. Marine in Iraq.

Regarding his "tough guy" theme, Kelly said, "People are sick of politicians from all parties. They're lying to them. People want someone to fight for them in Washington and that's the message I want to convey."

After being honorably discharged in 2004 and taken off inactive reserve last year, Kelly now works in the private sector as a project manager for a construction company that handles commercial water and sewer projects.

While he says he always loved politics, he never had a desire to be a politician.

But that all changed with the election of Barack Obama – whom Kelly calls a "radical president" – and the signing of the stimulus bill "monstrosity."

"They're spending us off the cliff!" he exclaimed. "They're destroying this nation, and while I'm still breathing, I will not let it happen. It's time to be 'in your face.'"

Indeed, Kelly's online ad thrashes the current administration, stating:

I'm tired of President Obama and the liberals who control Congress insulting us, calling us racist, and calling us a mob. I'm tired of their double-talk. I'm tired of their bait-and-switch shell games. I'm tired of being avoided by my public servants. They have forgotten that they work for us. ...
Ronald Reagan once famously said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction." We are that generation! Either we stand now and fight for our country, or the great United States of America may be but a fading memory.

He told WND his main goals are to "bring fiscal sanity back to Washington, to stop the out-of-control spending, and get back to the founding principles of free-market capitalism."

Kelly actually took over a town-hall meeting this month when its original congressional host, Rep. Giffords, canceled her appearance.

He stressed there's "no question" the national outpouring of rage against members of Congress is "100 percent genuine."

"These are citizens concerned about a government takeover of one-sixth of the economy," Kelly said, explaining Americans are not ready to give life-and-death decisions to Obama.

"These people are scared of a government that has grown radically out of control."

I don't know the date, but it's soon. It seems interesting, the number of servicemembers who are taking an active role in politics now. What's more interesting is a miniscule number of them are taking an anti-war stance. Imagine that, America. The boots on the ground warriors are the ones demanding we stay until it's finished. Maybe the fact that our buddies will have died for absolutely nothing should we pull out before the job is done has something to do with it. But what do I know?

I gotta admit you do it with style though. Has that pair of pirates in training with you, my boys, been giving you any trouble lately?

They have been just spectacular. Very helpful, kind, reverent and obedient.
Ryo stands up for himself more now, which is excellent, he does it very politely, albeit a little long winded. You need to teach him a little brevity. All in all the are Great young men...

He should stick up for himself. He doesn't need me or you or any of his friends here to do that for him. However, he does tend to be thourough. He's good in some ways with this, usually when he's being funny, but if he feels threatened he will try to overwhelm his adversary with so much information that they just give up. It's good to have them back in school so they aren't underfoot all day long. I am not sure why some people here pick on him. He gets picked on at school too, but at school he refuses to defend himself. He is actually afraid of hurting somebody with his Martial Arts skill, so he won't throw a punch. I wish I could teach such restraint to my younger boy, who at times will get into fights, but these are usually to stick up for his aniki chan.

I sent you a special PM and I hope you will give this the most serious consideration.

I doubt I'll go to it

I am not technically one of her constituents and I don't even pay taxes in Arizona. Gotta say that is pretty nice that I got AZ plates with a tax-exempt form on my '08 Trailblazer. Saved quite a bit from what I understand.

I think I'm off that night, so I may show up. I wonder how the spin will go on MSNBC if it's a couple SEIU guys getting put down by one conservative? I'm sure I'll be the bad guy no matter what.

I know the difference between self defense and assault consummated by battery. I'm sure it'll be pretty quiet here, most Obamanation supporters here are old retired fucks (no offense, samD). Either way, maybe a mariachi band will show up here. I'll have to make a call to the Patriot Guard or Freedom Riders. I bet the sound of 25 or 30 Harleys will drown out a Mexican guitar, whatta ya think?

Warriors getting involved in politics these days. Warriors, by tradition in this country have normally stayed out of politics until they retire from the military. Today we have active duty personnel, running for public office. There are no legal reasons for them not to, and it's only tradition, but I do find it curious about Sam's comment that some of these Warriors are coming down on the side of getting out of Iraq, and not finishing the job we went there to do. I find this disheartening to put it mildly.

Pull out for 72 hours, and reinvade. Do it all over again. Start with Iraq. We don't have to worry about air defense, so let the B52's lay a nice, thick, shag carpet over the whole fuckin country, then have the C130s bring the MOABs in and give them to the major cities, then we just go "hands across the desert", online, killing everyfuckinthing we see. If you kille everyone, there can't be any insurgents. After we're done, we divide it in two, with the southern half to Kuwait and the northern half to the Kurds. Then we invade Barbados. Why? Because it's a Tuesday. Then people will know we've truly gone nuts and NOBODY will want to fuck with us.

North Korea: "What? They invaded Barbados because it was Tuesday? They say they'll be done by Friday and will be hungry for Korean BBQ? Oh shit!! WE LOVE AMERICA!!!!"

Your ichiban magomusuko,

LittleDragon,

PS it ok with ryo if want bring 1st Cavalry Division, and remember, if break the rules, it will be the judge's distasteful duty to gun the offender down in cold blood. btw, ryo suggest Luckybychoice would be appropriate marksman to act as judge, but such matter should be discuss by our seconds. it not appropriate for gentlemen to concern themselves with such matter neh.

if it was good enough for Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr then is should be good enough for us today neh.

appropriate weaponry should be, M4 Carbine for the Judge, and Anvil, Roman Candle, or Hot Air Balloons and Blunderbusses as choices for weaponry for the duelists. ryo have make suggestion your act as judge of this duel. ryo's second will discuss this matter with Ojiisan's seconds, har and uhm har, he want the 1st Cav. Div. for his second thinking it give him advantage, but remember the rules. ryo not care who he pick for his second. he can bring the whole first cav with him if he wish, but if they interfere with duel in anyway, it shall be your distasteful duty to gun down Yosemite samD, wonder whatever happen the samA, samB and samC serie of sams ka. at any rate you may rest assure that ryo will be appropriately dress, in school uniform cause have to be in class by 7:30, and ryo will be perfect gentleman and of course will abide by all the rule that the seconds agree to.

Your friend,

LittleDragon,
PS if not have M4 Carbine am sure pops be willing to loan you his. Anvils at dawn on the morrow sir!

Good call, LD

samD, I'll be your second. I'll be in my hide prior to dawn and will take out anyone dressed in school uniform. Don't get mad, LD, it's just how us white guys do it. Fighting fairly wouldn't have allowed us to take this great nation from the injuns and meskins.

I may not be worl-class long range good, but I can call my shots at 350 meters with an iron-sighted M16, so I'll be able to maintain a good standoff with my wife's Remington .223.

does the noble art of gentlemanly pursuit mean nothing to you uncouth sausages ka yes ryo say sausages cause not want to insult a self respecting savage. and do you think ryo is honto stupid enough to walk into trap like this without packing a pair of W84 nuclear rounds with ryo ka sheesh, saugages is too nice for you. ryo cannot think of anything to call you unmitigate cads. sigh, and a gentlemanly duel with 16 ton Anvils at dawn would have been so much fun. ryo should go on the talk show circuit with Dr. Krautheimer (sp ka) and bemoan the state of gentlemanly pursuit among supposedly good conservative folk in this country. Dr. K would be so shock, cause he IS a perfect gentleman. you all know who fault this is neh ka it President Obama's fault for good conservative folk would not act in such uncouth manner if Senator McCain had won the election. and just what would the good Senator think if he heard you cads acting in such liberal behavior way ka liberal people would behave the way you people behaving. at least in fair duel, ryo could be squash with honor. honor is dead would be title of Dr. K's speech. you should all be shame of yourself neh.

ryo guess thththe thththe thththe this really is all folks~
somebody hit the jingle! Dr. K have invite ryo to gentleman's drinking party on last night before die by ambush. remember the RYO!, will be Dr. K's warcry when he come out and say because of behavior of unmitigate cads among good conservative folk he have decided to donate his penny collection for the Campaign for the re election of the President in 2012 and instead of the warcry of Change is on the way, which it really will be when Dr. K say on national television that he donating his penny collection, there warcry will be REMEMBER THE RYO!

He will set up stand opposite to lucy's stand and give cut rate prices. his stand will have shingle out that say: Psychiatric Help, 1 Penny! Fight metric, don't give an inch! Remember with fondness, Remember the RYO! For as we all know, samD was an honorable man! snicker snicker the libs will go. and the Mars company make fortune off selling Snicker Bars which the libs will wave in the face of the once mighty good conservative folk!

Gentleman?

I'm not sure what that is. I think that was the guy who was shot in the back while pacing off ten steps. I do hold doors for split-tails, so I think I am a gentleman, right?
