Turiano, Candidate for Governor of Montana

Drew Turiano, Turiano for Governor

Ever since I could remember, I’ve been infatuated with Conservative politics. I don’t know exactly where the passion first began for me. Maybe it all started with listening to Conservative talk radio growing up and learning the issues. Or possibly it all started with absorbing the sagacity of great writers like Pat Buchanan and Samuel Francis.

All I know is that my passion for Conservatism has led me to become a life–long and unapologetic Conservative Republican, and ever since the Tea Party movement began, I’ve become a Tea Party Conservative Republican.

My love for Conservative politics led me to the U.S. Senate campaign of former Majority leader Mike Lange in 2008, where I became his Communications Director. After the Mike Lange campaign, I finished writing a young adult novel called, George Buchanan Enters The Wormhole, that I had been working on for some time.

Since I announced for governor recently, my left–wing critics in Montana have started mocking my novel by writing that it has a “deadening Leave It To Beaver earnestness.”Well, excuse me for wanting to celebrate Christianity and traditional America with my book. Afterall, I realize the left has never known how to truly celebrate America. I say that in earnest–pun intended!

I have an M.A. in Political Science from Fordham University and I’m a real estate investor residing in the great city of Helena.

    Never heard of this guy, decided to look him up. The lefties (Montana Cowgirl Blog quote following) have their knives out. He must not be too bad:

    “I can hear the GOP defending their man Turiano now, “You can’t call him a racist, he’s not saying that non-white people are bad.” No, Drew Turiano is only saying that they caused “severe damage” to our “culture, customs, neighborhoods, crime rate, English language, schools, health care system and the general economic health of America” is all.

    “Like Nazi candidate Shawn Stuart, Turiano proudly boasts the endorsement of the Montana Right to Life.”

    Although I don’t live anywhere near his district, I sent money to Lou Barletta, one of the gutsier voices in opposition to illegal immigration in Congress. If this guy (Turiano) has a shot, I might send him something, also.

    I don’t care if Mr. Turiano runs for Town Council, he needs our support. We need to groom more and more Politically savvy and experienced Candidates to run for any Office available, and who has the experience to campaign hard, and win.

    He loves PJB and Sam Francis, and also the Tea Party Movement. He still has a little bit to learn. I wonder what Sam Francis would have had to say about the Tea Party Movement were he still alive today. If I knew him like I knew him, he would be glad for its anti-liberal activism but then criticizing it for being merely a street/activist strident and vociferous version of the same failed brand of lamestream conservatism that failed us the first time around. On race, he would pretty much react the same way James Edwards did to the Glenn Beckapalooza in August 2010.

    Since I announced for governor recently, my left—wing critics in Montana have started mocking my novel by writing that it has a “deadening Leave It To Beaver earnestness.

    He should endorse Leave it to Beaver’s whiteness. In all its seasons, it had only one black actor with lines, and one black “crowd” extra, and a few Hispanics came into play (remember the episode where Eddie Haskell conned The Beaver into cussing in Spanish at his temporary Hispanic friend?)

    If Turiano doesn’t win, then Montana will truly be “in the soup.”

    There seems to be a trend of Italian surname Americans whose names start with “T” being mostly right on the issues.

    Just one mild criticism — “Young adult” literature is really big kids literature. I’ve seen “young adult” classified as young as nine years old in bookstores.

    With Fanning-Baldwin also in the Republican primary for Montana Governor, I’m not sure which candidate to choose. It would be a pity if they took votes from each other.

    Add me to the list of “Never heard of him before, but very impressed” commenters. Even more heartening than finding a serious viable candidate of such exquisite taste in reading matter is finding one of such relative youthfulness.

    And the fact that Mr. Turiano’s running in the relatively sane state of Montana is also good news, as it’s one of the few places left in the US where candidate can quote Sam Francis and still have a shot at winning an election. Yes, campaigning will be very rough: the modern left is both totally bereft of morals and on a winning streak, so they will be merciless against a man like Turiano.

    But I do believe that if the GOP put up more SINCERELY conservative candidates like this, voters WOULD go for them in really big numbers. There is a hunger for this kind of straight-shootin’, unapologetic, TEA Party-friendly ideology in every state in the union — the roaring popularity of right-wing talk radio proves that. With a dozen Drew Turianos, the Republican Party might just be able to re-inspire White America, re-take the White House and begin reversing the Obamanation and dismantling BRA.

    I’m not the superstitious type, but fingers crossed for Drew Turiano just the same!
