Former Frank Challenger Ready for Another 4th District Race
Rachel Brown announced her candidacy on Friday, Feb. 10.
North Quincy Democrat and former Barney Frank challenger Rachel Brown announced late last week she plans to run again for the Fourth Congressional District seat.
Brown, 30, announced her candidacy on Feb. 10 and is part of the national slate of candidates for Lyndon Larouche's Political Action Committee (LaRouche PAC).
In a press release issued by her campaign, Brown not only challenges Republicans, but also fellow Democrats, saying the country faces "abominable unemployment, dire budget problems, an imminent threat of war, and a clinically insane president."
When Brown faced Frank in the 2010 Democratic primary, she received more than 10,000 votes in the district, or roughly 20 percent of the total votes cast.
Along with Brown, Attleboro Democrat Paul Heroux, Sharon Democrat Marty Farren and Brookline Democrat Jules Levine have announced plans to run for the seat. Brookline Library Trustee and Patch columnist Michael Burstein has said he will form an exploratory committee to look at the seat.
Newton Democrat Herb Robinson made a decision to run early on, after leaving his campaign to run for U.S. Senate.
Former Fourth District contender Sean Bielat and Brookline School Committee member and Republican Elizabeth Childs has also said she will run on the Republican ticket.
A full copy of Brown's press release is below:
Sometimes you've got to get to the point. I'm going to tell you the truth, keep it short, and propose what needs to be done. Right now our nation is in a deep crisis with abominable unemployment, dire budget problems, an imminent threat of war, and a clinically insane president. We've committed our nation to support a hyperinflationary bailout which doesn't work and is not only preventing a real change from occurring, but is actually driving the world's economies into disintegration. Our president is a representative of foreign interests, namely the British empire, and he must be removed by impeachment or the 25th amendment. These are the conditions which I warned about and acted upon in my last campaign against Barney Frank. I invite all citizens to join with me now.
To save our economy we must restore Glass-Steagall and return to a Hamiltonian credit system. Glass-Steagall, as I fought for in my last campaign, wipes the gambling debt off of the books of our federal government, while the credit system directs federally-issued credit to productive areas of the economy, driving the entire economy to a higher level of energy-throughput. Since the Massachusetts' Bay Colony's Pine Tree shilling, since Hamilton's shaping of the Constitution and establishment of the First National Bank, and since Lincoln's greenback policy, our nation has recognized that subservience to a private financial power undermines our development and the interest of our people. True values lies in human creativity and our contribution to the future.
There are projects ready to go now which will drive our economy in this process: NAWAPA, a large-scale water project which will drive scientific research in the Arctic relating to the Earth-galaxy relationship, and a Moon/Mars colonization project, driven by fusion propulsion. These projects will restore productive physical employment and an optimistic sense of identity for our people, as well as advance mankind to a higher platform of understanding and technology, placing more of the universe at our fingertips. Our planet is entering a region of the galaxy which puts us at risk of high amounts of cosmic radiation and consequent changes on earth, we need to prepare for that now.
Support my fight, along with that of the entire national slate of LaRouche candidates. The way out of this mess is not to ignore it- there is an active attempt by the British empire to launch WWIII against Russia and China who could be our partners in developing the planet and beyond- thus, Obama must be removed now. We are not going to give up, and you shouldn't either. We can restore these great principles of our nation, and unleash a new Renaissance for mankind!
