small business

A small business association was interested in how I felt about their constituency. I have created, grown and sold a couple of them myself, in addition to raising my three daughters almost exclusively via my small business. Probably the best way to explain my sentiments for this group of creative entrepreneurs is to share the brochure I single-handedly created years ago… that is I took the photos, interviewed the business people, wrote the text, designed the brochure and printed a bunch of them. As you can probably tell, I designed it to be a tri-fold handout printed on both sides to promote the Libertarian Party of Idaho and my election campaign of 2006. Here is a .pdf of that document […]

Uncelebrating the Fourth

by Harry Browne July 4, 2003 Unfortunately, July 4th has become a day of deceit. On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress formally declared its independence from Great Britain. Thirteen years later, after a difficult war to secure that independence, the new country was open for business. It was truly unique — the first nation in all of history in which the individual was considered more important than the government, and the government was tied down by a written Constitution. It was the one nation where you could live your life secure in the knowledge that no one would ask for your papers, where you weren’t identified by a number, and where the government wouldn’t extort a percentage of your […]

Linked in + Twitter

The Internet and social media are great equalizers in politics, among other information fields. Today I got around to reviewing and updating my Linked in profile information. It is a whole lot more relevant than it was, and I think gives a good overview of what I am trying to accomplish by running for Montana Governor. Linked-In summary of Ted Dunlap I am looking up at our Big Skies and seeing environmental “engineering” that needs to be researched, vetted or condemned by Montana agencies. I see a pharmaceutical-prison industrial complex being fed by prohibition that has long-past proven worse than counter-productive. My campaign focuses on those two issues. Montanans who want to say those are important to them merely need […]

beyond Poly-Sci 101

College political science courses are a good starting point for learning about the process. But as anyone with 10 years or more in any field will tell you, what they learned in the real world turned out quite differently from what they learned in school. In politics, the academics still explain election results while the voting public still believes those to be irrefutable facts. My experience has been different from theirs. First, their view of, for a relevant example, Montana’s 2012 gubernatorial race. The Democrat received 236,450 votes The Republican received 228,879 votes The Libertarian received 18,160 votes. The fascinating, to me, academic conclusion is that the Libertarian gave the election to the Democrats. That had it not been for […]

Ted Dunlap for governor

I just developed a half-page, two-sided handout for my campaign. It covers three main points that I could impact in a highly positive way were I to win the election. Moreover, if my campaign attracts significant interest and generates excitement in these three ideas, mainstream candidates and mainstream media would take notice. Thus, every bit you help and every time you share moves these three ideas more into mainstream focus. Here is a link to a .pdf of it. I encourage you to print them two sided, then cut in half vertically. Distribute liberally in your area of operation. Ted’s Triad handout I also encourage you to send a check. I will print and share a bunch of them. Below […]

more guns, less crime

STATE OF THE NATION: Lots More Guns, Much Less Violent Crime Posted by Bob Owens on April 5, 2016 at 11:42 am Patrick Tyrell noted something interesting yesterday at The Daily Signal. We’ve noted previously that firearms sales and ownership are both at an all-time high in the United States. Female, urban, and youth shooters are the fastest growing demographics of gun owners. Sport shooting is the fastest growing sport among high school students in many parts of the nation, and a surge in female shooters is driving both the concealed carry market and gun designs themselves. And of course, gun sales continues to set records for the 11th straight month in a row. Now, it is fair to […]

war on coal

SEATTLE (AP) — Gov. Jay Inslee says he’ll approve a bill allowing Washington state’s largest utility to set aside money for the eventual shutdown of two coal-fired electricity plants in Montana. The Obama administration and friends appear to have declared war on coal energy. This does not seem to relate to coal’s fit in the overall energy production, consumption and environmental impacts. And it very definitely has a negative impact on Montana’s use of our natural resources … which is also jobs and our way of life here. Modern coal mining and energy production is far cleaner than its reputation, and currently meets 34% of this country’s energy needs. Were one to want to reduce coal energy production, intelligent approaches […]
