Libertarian Chris Fields Seeking Republican Endorsement

      Pursuant to his request, at the time of this writing, I had "a cup of coffee" with Chris Fields. Not much information has been shared about Chris Fields. Thus, this writing will share what Chris Fields has shared with me.

      Chris Fields spent the first 20 years of his life growing up in the Bronx, New York. It appears that around high school age, he enlisted in the military. He then spent the last 21 years of his life in the Marines, in San Diego, California, from which he just retired. He achieved the honorable rank of Major. He saw action in the Middle East. I thank him for his service. May God bless him for his service.       He recently married his 2nd wife, whom he met on the Internet, and moved to Minnesota. They own a home in San Diego, California, and St. Paul, Minnesota. To establish a presence in our district here in the 5th (so he can run for political office in the 5th), he recently purchased a condo or apartment in Minneapolis. Thus, at the time of this writing, he has lived in Minnesota about 4 months.
      Chris Fields describes himself as a Libertarian.
     He told me that he is pro-choice "at every stage" possible.
      He also told me that he supports gay rights legislation. It should be noted that gay rights legislation is the most ultra liberal progressive position.
     At a recent speaking engagement, Fields "applauded Keith Ellison for his representation of muslims."  Keith Ellison supports CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations,  which was a named coconspirator to funding terrorism in a case where people were convicted of sending $12,000,000.00 to the terrorist organization Hamas.  Keith Ellison is regularly the keynote speaker at CAIR's Annual Banquet.     

     Fields volunteered twice that Saddam Hussein got a bad deal. He later added that he was glad that he was gone.  Lynne Torgerson, in contrast, is glad we took down Saddam Hussein.  Saddam Hussein murdered thousands of his own people, would reimburse families of suicide bombers $25,000.00, and regularly sent Scud missiles into civilian terrorities in Israel.  His own people executed him. 
   At a recent speaking engagement, Fields stated that all troops should be brought home and that even 3000 troops was too many.     At a recent speaking engagement, Fields stated that he wants to establish "Enterprise zones" in North Minneapolis, where companies would operate tax free and provide jobs to local residents in North Minneapolis.

     Fields told me that he recently began attending church, feeling that previously it was inappropriate because he wore the uniform of a Marine.
      Fields' future career plans are uncertain. Also, he apparently has no prior business experience, no prior experience in the law, and no prior political experience.


      I am sorry, but there is much in the Libertarian platform with which I do not agree. These positions have no place in the Republican Party. Libertarians here in the 5th Congressional District:

           Support abortion

           Support gay rights legislation

           Are anti-war

           Are anti-government

           Support legalizing illicit drugs

           Support legalizing prostitution

      These positions are in direct conflict with the Republican platform. These positions have no place in the Republican Party.

      The support of gay rights legislation is that of ultra liberal progressives. Simply because someone may support conservative economic policies does not make them Republican nor conservative. It is just anti-government.

      We are not supposed to be anti-government. Rather, we should support good government, which is consistent with it being smaller.

      Again, Chris Fields self-identifies himself as a Libertarian.
