The John Birch Society’s official magazine, The New American, has posted an interview with one of the gubernatorial candidates in California. Chelene Nightingale is running for the American Independent Party’s nomination.
The New American: As your profile indicates, you have been a political activist in California for five or more years. Is this why the Constitution Party leadership asked you to run for Governor?
Chelene Nightingale: Yes. I did not immediately accept the invitation. In fact, it took me several weeks of prayers and discussions before saying yes. Although I had been a political activist for five years at the time of the invitation, I had absolutely no interest in running for office. But as a mother, I am quite concerned about the future of the United States for my children and future generations. We are rapidly losing our liberty, the unemployment rate continues to rise, and our borders are wide open. We can save our Republic, but only if “we the people” take action and run for office ourselves or at least vote out the collectivists and elect liberty candidates instead.
The interview is quite long and contains a good deal many more question.
