    A congressional candidate running as a Republican in the upcoming Illinois primary says the "Holocaust never happened."

    Arthur Jones, 64, a Lyons, IL, insurance salesman who organizes family-friendly, neo-Nazi events around Adolph Hitler's birthday, hopes to be the Republican candidate chosen to run against Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski in Illinois' 3rd Congressional District.

    "As far as I'm concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews," Jones said. "It's the blackest lie in history. Millions of dollars are being made by Jews telling this tale of woe and misfortune in books, movies, plays and TV."

    "The more survivors, the more lies that are told."

    House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government.

    The task force would look at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.

    The aircraft carrier is a nice touch. I suppose if it's a big enough disaster, Wyoming might become a coastal state.

    While no party should be defined by their extremes, you have to admit glitter bombing is a bit different than holding neo-nazi get-togethers.

    Vermin Supreme is satirical. Bad example. Personally I think he's hilarious

    But yeah, I don't think fringe elements define entire groups either.

    It is much different, and the majority of Republicans aren't neo-nazi's. The I don't think the GOP is going to support this guy. If they do, I will change my registration to the conservative party.

    This year the fringe is the party in the case of republicans. I mean you have santorum and rick parry Michelle all running and they are squirrel bait.

    This guy is a whack job, and I don't see how he has anything in common with republican beliefs. If anything he's trying to run on the republican ticket because it's the only major option to run against an incumbent.

    ----------

    He put a little bit of his hate for Israel on his campaign site.

    There are a few people in DC that I really don't like, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chris Dodd, and Barney Frank.

    I am a republican that would vote for all 4 of them over this Art Jones.

    LOL exactly.

    Rent is high, but everybody in the world wants to live in these large cities NYC isn't getting any bigger, but the population is. It's supply and demand and you can only go so low before land owners can't even pay the taxes.

    (edit) Change to the conservative party? From the Santorum party? WTH?

    Ok, I'm going to hold you to that. How many votes do you consider GOP support? You support Santorum, and he's only recently been able to get over 20% support. If this guy gets 15-20% of the vote, will you promise to vote for Obama?

    No matter what happens in the presidential election, I am not voting for Obama or any liberal for president. This is two separate contest here. There are a lot of crazy people out there, this guy might get support from the anti-Zionist Occupy protesters rather than right wing GOP supporters.

    Yeah, but Vermin Supreme wants people to brush their teeth and give every one a pony. The Republicans have a Neo-Nazi.

    Well because I am a conservative, (not really a social conservative though). I am registered republican in order to support a conservative in the republican party. In NY we can register for the conservative party though.

    That's just silly, the point was they are both whack jobs.

    You want me to vote for Obama if the GOP supports a Nazi? The point was you wanted me to do something against my beliefs if so "my party" does something stupid. Does that make sense?

    I also pointed out that this guy is a Nazi, and from what the chanting I heard at Occupy Wall St, they are anti-Zionist, and I would be that most of them belong to the Democrat party.

    Are there nuts in the Democrats? Yes. Do they run for office. I'm sure they do. You said that if one of your nuts who happens to be running for office gets GOP support, you would change party allegience. I'm just asking you what you consider GOP support. Do you think he will get any support? 1%? 5? 10? He's a Nazi! You said so yourself! There's no way your party would give him a tiny amount of support right? But, what do you define as tiny support, because obviously you think Santorum had a chance, and he wasn't breaking double digets for most of this campaign.

    So, again, if this guy gets 15-20% will you vote for Obama? How about 30%

    (edit) If you say no, you are admitting that you think at least 15-20% of your party are Nazi supporters. Just sayin'

    I didn't say I would vote liberal. I would leave the GOP and register for the conservative party. Meaning I am still going to vote for whoever is the most conservative. So you tell me, why would I vote for Obama?

    Because conservatives created a response to HillaryCare which was then used as the basis for RomneyCare, and which is not surprisingly the basis for ObamaCare. Back then, Democrats argued for health care reform that was even more sweeping, and would save even more money. Republicans opposed that plan, and when they won that fight, did NOTHING to fix the problem. Democrats implimented a plan that was a partial fix, for partial savnigs, and the Republicans not only opposed it, but want to undo it, which will cost a lot more than keeping the changes.

    I point that out because I always thought conservatives wanted to "stay the course" and avoid major changes. Conservatives were more likely to be afraid of big changes, see danger in life, and were risk averse. We have health care reform based on your plan, not as big a fix as needed, and you want to support the party that wants to prevent any fix of the problem.

    If you were bleeding, and two nurses were fighting over which bandage to use, you probably would just insist someone bandage the wound. Republicans aren't fighting over which bandage to use, but are actively trying to prevent the Democrats from doing anything.

    How can you say that is the conservative approach?

    Let me guess, c student?

    The point was both sides have crazy people. Not to mention this guy is socialist, democrat should be supporting this guy.

    He's a democrat that didn't make the ticket, so he created his own party.

    You are mistaken. His first run was two decades ago, on the Rent is Too Damn High ticket. Please fail to post misinformation.

    But you can't deny that the points he quoted from you are pretty much verbatim FOX talking points.
