Hold me back. Radnor's own in pauperis birther, Jim Schneller is yes, running for congress.

So is he running his campaign on the in forma pauperis platform? You know how he like to file all those frivolous lawsuits that taxpayers have to pay for?

Earlier this year Radnor's own tea bagging fool made news by trying to get Barack Obama deported or whatever - actually it was the whole birth certificate thing, hence making him a birther - you can read about it on the web including here.

But as Sarah Palin had to be, so does the Schneller, unfortunately.

But seriously, this is one of those people who spends time seemingly every week out front of Bryn Mawr Hospital protesting their mythical abortion clinic. Now while not a constant fan of the hosptial, they don't deserve that and those people shouldn't just be able to block the whole sidewalk when they are there.

Also, does Schneller pay rent or a mortgage? Or are his expenses covered for him? How will he fund this campaign? Part of running for office is life experience so what real viable experience can make a voter want to go the Schneller route? I think candidates like Schneller are dangerous because they are too much of a side show distraction, but thought I would put it out there one time that he was attempting to run for Sestak's seat.

Schneller would be a candidate who would set a woman's right to chose back about a century.

Add another face in race for 7th Congress seat
Published: Sunday, November 22, 2009

An Independent candidate from Wayne has emerged in the ever-expanding field seeking the 7th Congressional District seat in mid-term elections next year.

Jim Schneller, 54, is a fiscally conservative pro-life reformer who wants to reign in spending at the federal level, while working to reduce debt nationally and locally.

“The huge debt that’s being taken on by our federal government, this is being mirrored in our state Legislature and it’s also happening in the local sector,” he said. “It has just become obvious, really in the very short term, that this has been burgeoning and when Congress came into its 2009 session and started to issue trillions of dollars of no-string bailouts, I jumped to attention and started talking to friends and with community people, and nobody is happy about it.”

Schneller, a “parishioner under every possibly meaning of the word” at St. Katharine of Siena in Wayne, said he attended Penn State University and Columbia University, studying a wide range of subjects including pre-medicine, mathematics, information technology and biology.

Schneller said he went on to work at New York City’s department of licensing, where he acted as a liaison between city government and business to implement new laws on storage warehouse law. He said he has also worked as a sales and marketing executive and previously owned his own retail Web site....To date, those Democratic opponents include state Rep. Bryan Lentz, D-161, of Swarthmore; political consultant E. Teresa Touey of Massachusetts, and environmental lawyer Gail Conner of Edgmont.

Pat Meehan of Upper Darby, a former Delaware County district attorney and U.S. attorney, is the Republican candidate for the seat. State Rep. Greg Vitali, D-166, of Haverford, is also mulling a run but has not been actively campaigning.

OK who isn't running for this seat? See page four of this flyer. Sorry, but this guy is too much of an extremist to represent a widely diverse district in the U.S. Congress and hopefully the knee-jerk reactors will have the sense to realize that. And it's great to be fiscally conservative and all, but I don't want him handling my wallet thank you very much. Jim Gerlach he ain't. Google Jim Schneller and tell me if you want him representing you. if you do it's fine, but I think the whole concept is nuttier then a jar of peanut butter.

If you look at his "issues" statement on his webpage, I actually like his views except for the pro-life stance - which he takes to an extreme.

Limited Government

Crucial Importance of Small and Medium Sized Business

Rights of the Elderly and Nursing Home Patients

Return to Transparency in Government

Full disclosure of all lobbying activity

Pro Life - Unborn and Advanced Age

Sensible Health Care Reform

Phase Out the Unconstitutional Federal Reserve

I actually agree with his issue statement on everything he states except the pro-life portion, and the problem is that he takes that to such an extreme he discredits himself.

Now that he has made himself a public figure, I will state that this guy is a nutjob who gives a bad name to true constitutional conservatives - of which he is not.

A true constitutional conservative understands that abortion is an issue for the states and should not be a part of a platform for federal office.

Note he states "limited government". That's a good general phrase in regards to my political views, but the true term should be constitutionally limited federal government, or federal government limited to its constitutionally enumerated powers.

He can't say that, though, because that would discredit his own pro-life stance and show him for the hypocrite that he is.

Conveniently, and since there is popular backlash against it, he does mention the Fed is unconstitutional.

This guy almost makes me embarrassed to have my political views, but you will find cuckoos of all stripes and political persuasions.
