From 2014 Libertarian Senate candidate Sean Haugh’s Tumblr page:
*sigh* I guess it’s that time again. Here’s my first take at a campaign bio. I’m sure my next campaign manager will make me change it, just like my last one did.
I am incredibly lazy person, utterly lacking any ambition. Seriously, I would like nothing more than to hang out with friends and family, seek beauty, listen to music, consume fine food and drink, maybe read a few books, and plot fantasy football domination. A life of constant, simple pleasures. I haven’t started campaigning yet because while it’s fun once it gets going, I still really don’t want to do this. I’d rather have all that time to stop and smell the flowers.
Some people find me confusing, but really I am very simple to understand. I am a super nice guy. I like pretty much everybody, and while I don’t wish to sound arrogant, with very few exceptions if you dislike me, there must be something wrong with you.
It’s just that I have had more than a lifetime’s worth of everyone’s nonsense. People believe all kinds of crazy stuff and I ain’t having none of it. I have died inside too many times because I have remained silent in the face of lies, or worse. No more.
I might could leave it be when people’s nonsense only affects their own lives. You are welcome to believe any harmless foolishness you want, and are even on pretty solid ground if you want to tell me some of what I believe is also foolishness.
But, people, we’ve got some lies and nonsense going on these days that’s piling up dead bodies and threatening to tear the world apart. War and legal plunder are increasing to obviously unsustainable levels. War is no longer something that happens “over there.” People are dying in our own streets because of our various wars. Everyone is affected. No one is safe.
I cannot just sit back and go about life doing nothing about this ever increasing mayhem with a clear conscience. I must speak out. That’s why I’m running for U.S. Senate.
Was that an official announcement? I’m in the same place I’ve been for months. I intend to run for U.S. Senate as a Libertarian in North Carolina in 2016. But I haven’t raised money, or hired a campaign manager and a treasurer, or even updated my tumbleweed of a website. It’s officially official when I start doing some or all of these things.
