I’ve carried the ball as far down field as I can. With 4 jobs and school starting in June, along with not having a truck to carry me to presidential debates, I see no way to continue the campaign.
I’ve withdrawn from the race and have my sights on the Class Action Materials and operating under the redar toward the Tribulation Period. I’ve deleted all the websites relating to the campaign.
If there were a following for our ideas, it would have already show itself in the form of a donation.
God Bless you,
So apparently he didn’t get even one donation.
Gene’s campaign website is indeed gone, and has been replaced by a filler page advertising “Plaintfield Role Slave” (whatever the heck that is). In fact, as he said, all the campaign pages are gone.
That includes a blog maintained solely by his 15-year-old “Intelligent Design Advisor”, which had absolutely nothing to do with Gene’s campaign. It was basically a religious blog. I didn’t agree with anything that kid said, and truthfully read it for laughs, but at the same time that kid put a LOT of work into that blog. It was a lot better blog than Gene’s would ever have been.
Gene shouldn’t have deleted the kid’s blog. That wasn’t right. Gene didn’t write that blog, he didn’t maintain that blog, and precious little on that blog had anything to do with Gene.
Yet to be seen is if he will try to make a comeback into the presidential race, or if he will instead bill himself forever as “Former US Presidential Candidate Gene Chapman”.
