Iowa Republican says government illegitimate, declares herself U.S. Senator

An Iowa woman who was running for a state Senate seat has dropped that bid after deciding the U.S. government is a sham, and has instead unilaterally declared herself a U.S. Senator from the Republic of Iowa in an alternative government, the Republic for the United States of America. As Jason Noble of the Des Moines Register first reported, the candidate, Randi Shannon, had been running for the state’s 34th Senate district. However, she recently came to believe that the real U.S. government was replaced with an illegal one after the Civil War so, rather than continue her state-level pursuit, she dropped that bid and named herself a Senator of the what she thinks is the true government.

I agree that a loony suffering a hate-Government kind of mental illness according to the NIH, could have done a lot more bizarre things than what this very disturbed woman did, which could have endangered the safety of Americans and/or threatened our national security.  It is obvious that this female anti-Government politician is a cuckoo whose mind went kaput.  Watch out what she is going to do next, and for your safety, stay away from her.

I agree this tactic regardless of it's validity ( I see none and they present no evidence) is  a losing proposition.  There are so many other supportable tactics she could of  used. This is very ill advised.

 Many of those suffering mental illness according to the National Institute of Health are now all over the place. This Iowa woman is just one of them.
