Bert Loftman has joined 9 others (Mike Cowan, Tom Dooley, Mike Evans, Tom Graves, Lee Hawkins, Jeremy Jones, Bobby Reese, Bill Stephens, and Steve Tarvin) in the race for Georgia’s Ninth District Congressional Seat.
His press release indicates his platform is to Institute a FairTax, Abolish the Fed, and Honor the Constitution.
Despite his claim that all the other candidates are running on a business as usual platform (Seriously, have you met Tom Dooley or Jeremy Jones?), I’m starting to think you can buy this platform off of a late night Sally Struthers infomercial.
So, welcome to the race Mr. Loftman. I apologize that you decided to announce on a day where all I see is rain and sarcasm. But I am looking forward to driving two hours in this mess so that you can yell at me in person at the Walker County GOP dinner this evening. I’m sure the time driving thru Atlanta at rush hour in the rain will do wonders for my current dispostion.

PRESS RELEASE – 10 NOVEMBER 2009
BERT LOFTMAN FOR US CONGRESS GA-9

BERT LOFTMAN announces his Republican candidacy for the US Congress, GA-9.
He enters this crucial race because the Washington Politicians are
leading us by the nose to a disaster. When he looks at the platforms
of the other candidates, he sees politics as usual.
Our original Constitution produced the most prosperous and free
country that the world had ever seen. Our original Constitution had
no income tax or inflation tax. These taxes weaken the American
people and strengthen the government. The result is a bloated,
arrogant, meddling government that is taking the shirt off our backs.
Bert has studied these things and concluded that to change course, we
must focus on doing these three things:
Replace the federal income tax with the FairTax
End The Federal Reserve Bank and its inflation tax
Honor our Constitution
When Conservative Republicans send Bert to Washington, he will join
like minded Congressmen such as John Linder, Tom Price, and Ron Paul
in the fight to reclaim America.
Dr. Loftman moved to Pickens County ten years ago and retired from
medical practice in 2005. He and his wife of forty-six years have
three children and five grandchildren. He served his country as a US
Army physician in Vietnam. He continues to serve his community as a
volunteer in medical clinics, as a leader, worker, and instructor on
the environment, and as a major supporter of the arts and his church.
