Romney, Obama, Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich and Karger All Did It

LAGUNA BEACH, CA – It has become a rite of passage when you run for President – you have to write your memoirs.

Well, the wait is over.  Thanks to famous author Steve Fiffer, my memoirs are complete!  Fred Who? Political Insider to Outsider.

The electronic version is ready for purchase on Kindle, nook and iBooks today.  The hardcopy and paperback will be available on November 1, 2011.

“You’ll meet the people who made my life so interesting: from Rock Hudson to Ronald Reagan.  From Lynda “Wonder Woman” Carter to Barry Goldwater.  From Cesar Chavez to Lee Atwater, and more. I’ve been a part of nine presidential campaigns, and more Senate, gubernatorial, congressional and state and local campaigns than I can count.  I’ve represented Fortune 500 companies and worked with environmental groups.  I’ve made friends with the hotel workers union and enemies of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons).  I’ve supported Hillary Clinton and gone after Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee.  I’ve been featured in one of the most famous commercials of all time, and I’ve had my life threatened.  And perhaps most interesting of all, I led a dual existence for the first fifty-six years of my life.”

It’s a page-turner and one you won’t want to miss reading.


 

All American Troops to Come Home from Iraq by December 31, 2011

For the last two years we’ve been calling on President Obama to end both wars and bring our service members home from Iraq and Afghanistan.  I was particularly pleased to watch the announcement that we will be leaving Iraq by the end of the year.

image

As we wind down both wars, and hopefully cut our military spending, I hope that Americans will respond by hiring our returning veterans.  Businesses large and small, along with labor and individuals should make a huge effort to hire these brave veterans.  There are many web sites to facilitate this and these heroes will not let you down!


 

Fred Talks About the Mormon Faith and Romney Keeping Him Out of Debates

This just came out.  I was a guest on Comedy Central’s, “Indecision” in New York last week.  I was interviewed by Mary Phillips-Sandy in their SoHo studios.  I think you’ll enjoy it:

image

Make sure you watch it past what appears to be the end.  There’s a fun surprise.

Thanks to all at Comedy Central for making the interview possible!

Another Successful Saturday Precinct Walk and Fred Frisbee Giveaway

DERRY, NH – It was a beautiful Fall day and we were led by the incredible Kirk the Bagpiper on his home turf.  We spent a lot of time walking all over this beautiful New Hampshire town last Saturday and ended up downtown to be part of the Halloween festivities.  So many kids and so many Frisbees to give away.  It was a great day.  We spoke to lots of New Hampshire voters who are ready for new leadership.  Here are some of the photos:

Re:  Potential Boycott of Florida Orange Juice

 

Gentleman:

Florida is jeopardizing the most important decision we make as Americans every four years, the election of the President of the United States.

 

By violating Republican National Committee rules and choosing January 31, 2012 for Florida’s Presidential Primary, you have created havoc in the Presidential selection process.  Florida has gained nothing by moving its primary date forward and will remain the fifth contest.  You have caused tremendous disruption and uncertainty in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina.  Florida would rob voters of one of the most important tools they need to make an informed decision: time.

 

Voters need time during the coming months to fully vet all eleven serious Republican Presidential candidates.  Florida would potentially rob American voters of two months of campaigning which only helps the frontrunner.  As one of these candidates for President, I cannot sit idly by while the state of Florida threatens the entire selection process.

 

The 2012 presidential election is of extreme importance.  Our nation is at a crucial juncture and Florida’s poorly thought out decision is ill-conceived and un-American.

Boycott Florida Orange Juice

If Florida does not agree to move its primary back to its original date in March 2012 by November 1, 2011, we will officially launch a nationwide Boycott of Florida Orange Juice.  We have the domain name, have begun developing our web site and have the ticking orange on our logo:

In my fight for civil rights over the last three years, I have led four national and global boycotts.  I was involved in the Anita Bryant inspired Florida Orange Juice Boycott in 1978, and am keenly aware of the economic pressure that boycotts wield.  I have begun speaking with Republican and political leaders in New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada.  There is tremendous interest in our possible boycott.
