Independent Announces U.S. Senate Bid

A longtime employee of the Federal Aviation Administration, Vietnam veteran (Air Force)  and homeopathic practitioner announced today he's running as an independent for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by the retiring Jeff Bingaman.

Jon Barrie sounds like a Libertarian in some ways. A quick look at his platform shows he's  in favor of: eliminating the Internal Revenue Service, repealing the Patriot Act and eliminating "undeclared wars."

He also wants to "Put God back into our country" and says "this nation is a Christian nation and that God is our Creator who guides us in all things. Further, I testify of the divinity of his Son Jesus Christ." But he also says he supports "the freedom of all religious and non-religious groups to worship in freedom."
