Andy Martin “gets the blood flowing” with a “red meat” speech to a conservative audience

Martin ridicules his “conservative” opponents’ complete lack of national experience

(SPRINGFIELD, IL)(November 22, 2009) Republican U. S. Senate candidate and insurgent “Internet Powerhouse” Andy Martin was the lead off speaker at a forum of U. S. Senate candidates Saturday evening in Springfield. The forum was held at the I Worship Church and attracted conservative Tea Party/9-12 activists from the central part of the state.

Earlier Saturday afternoon Martin held a news conference and offered the first installment of his media strategy to defeat Mark Kirk. Martin announced that he planned to start purchasing advertising the first week of December if fund raising produced resources for a media campaign. “We are going on the attack he said.”

Martin ridiculed both Mark Kirk and his other opponents for their mendacity and lack of experience. “I am running again ‘Magic Slate’ and ‘Blank Slate,” Andy said. “As kids we used to play with a board with a plastic cover and a stylus. After you finished writing, you lifted up the plastic cover and erased everything you had written. I call mark Kirk ‘Magic Slate:’ As if by magic Kirk wants to erase his congressional career and pretends he is a red state, good ole boy conservative.

“But my other opponents collectively lack any national experience. If you believe the Pat Hughes story, earlier this year he had a vision and decided to become a U. S. Senator. Where was Hughes last year when we were fighting Obama? Hughes was nowhere to be found. Hughes has no record. He is a ‘blank slate.’

“None of the candidates were fighting Obama in 2008. Now they all claim to be national material. They want to play in the Super Bowl without ever having participated in the regular season.”

Martin was asked the question “Is the Constitution a living document?” He responded with the observation that “The pretender in the White House is trying to kill the Constitution, so it must be alive. If conservatives do not fight back, Obama will kill our Constitution. We must be ready to fight Obama if we want America to survive,” he stated passionately.

Martin said the idea that someone with no experience could simply appear and challenge an experienced candidate such as Kirk was laughable.

Martin’s speech was taped by the debate sponsor.

Martin also unveiled his new brochure:

Fellow Patriots:

America is under attack. Our Constitution, our Military, our Values, our History and Heritage are under attack. In times of crisis, what do we turn to? One word says it all: Experience.

As an Illinois voter, you have a choice. You can support Mark Kirk or you can support me, Andy Martin, a patriot with the experience and ability to defeat Kirk in the Republican primary. Kirk is a cynical professional politician. He has $2 million in “dirty dollars” from Washington lobbyists to fool Illinois voters with false claims and misleading advertising. The liberal Kirk is trying to hide his liberal voting record in Congress by pretending he is a conservative.

I am the only challenger with experience to defeat Kirk in February 2, 2010 primary election. If you agree with me that our Constitution, Values and the very Fiber that has made America great are under attack, then you need to support Kirk’s only experienced opponent; Andy Martin.

I am the only candidate with the experience to rebuild our shattered economy. Obama’s billions for new bonuses on Wall Street, with bankruptcy for Main Street are disgraceful. I am the only candidate with forty years of corruption fighting experience. I have a record you can see, not just campaign promises. Voters will demand a real corruption-fighter as their next senator, a corruption-fighter with foreign policy and military experience that you can see; one with a proven record, not hollow promises.

I have been tested in the media and on the national stage. I have stood up to Barack Obama at a time when Kirk was afraid to. I fought back against Obama’s lies. My experience can be trusted, an experience that no other candidate has.

Ask yourself, when you need a doctor, a lawyer, a military leader or a United States Senator from Illinois, who will you choose? You will choose someone with experience; Andy Martin.

Please, help me defend America from all foreign and domestic enemies. And with your help, we will defeat Kirk in the February 2, 2010 primary and go on to defeat the Daley Machine Democratic candidate in the November 2010 general election.

I ask for your support and your vote in the February 2, 2010 primary. Any effort will be gratefully and truly appreciated.
