The only issue you stand for is the legalization of drugs, yet you committed acts of burglary (even stealing handguns!) while high on drugs. Please explain how this is not the most idiotic and illogical campaign ever.

Will you get rid of the Scientologists in Florida, especially Clearwater? If so, I'm moving to Florida for the sole purpose of voting for you.

I was going to reply to cooke's comment, but it was so negative and distasteful that I'd rather wait until someone with a heart (and half a brain) questions me on that one.

Saw that one coming. I could try a million different explanations for why this is not the "most idiotic and illogical campaign ever," and actually I've explained a lot through my speech and different websites, but I really don't think it will matter. For the people that automatically think this way, such as cooke, I'd rather just not have your vote. I'm already going through quite a headache in order to do this for people, and I don't need negative nancy's like you demoralizing me.

If you plan on answering every question about your bullsh*t platform with "you're being mean and negative so I'm not going to answer" then pack your sh*t, you've already lost, bitch.

exactly, I dont see how cooke's post was negative and distasteful. this is now 99% of the people will react... do you have a legit explanation, or not?
February 15th, 2008
(0)
99%? Your figures are slightly off. I must ask of your pardons, but you have now become the first people to officially challenge me due to something I did when I was a child. No one else has actually said anything along the lines of what you have said. So, I think you mean 1%.

First of all, standrawers, thank you for proving my point by resorting to name-calling. Very mature of you, and it really helps you crush my morale. My platform, second of all, is not bullsh*t. It's logical and it's something new to try.
February 15th, 2008
(2)
To answer Petitman's question (and cooke's), My platform aims primarily at one thing: personal freedom - NOT an answer to drug misuse, or drug-induced crimes. I don't want people to misinterpret that, as you both clearly have here. And that may be my fault for not stating that more clearly. What I did (when I was practically a child, mind you) was very bad, indeed, and is not at all beneficial to my campaign, though I do feel that actually spending 7 months in jail was overall beneficial to my (continued)..
February 15th, 2008

What I would seriously hope is that no one would base their choice to vote for me solely on my criminal past. I'm not saying this wont happen, but it pains me to think that people would be so unforgiving. Notwithstanding, I understand that it may simply be a comfortability issue. However, to balance the argument, I find it can be potentially in my favor because I have "hands-on" experience in both the drug and criminal fields.

My parents divorced when I was about 4, and I lived primarily with my mother on the south side of town. We lived in poverty for quite some time, though the time I got to spend with my dad was a little more lavish, since he was an established lawyer. My mother eventually filed for bankruptcy before establishing herself as an author.

On January 14th, 2008, I filed paperwork with the state to create a business called John Shaw Computers, Inc. I didn't need to pursue college because I've been doing fine with the business I've created. I created it from scratch - it's not a hand-me-down, and no one "spoiled" me.

Well I'm certainly not here to prove you wrong in order to get more than a 1 out of you - that's not something I really care about. If I happen to fit into the description of what the "Ron Paultards" are saying, so be it. I seriously doubt they know who I am, though, and I certainly have not affiliated with anyone from Ron Paul's campaign.

You know, as an independent candidate, you may want to consider taking extreme measures to gain publicity. I mean you're a YTMND user, not only that but you're young as f*ck. Jesse Ventura was I'm pretty sure the first independent candidate to win the governorship of Minnesota cause he was a balls-to-the-wall f*cking hardass, and everyone knew quite well that he aint got no time to bleed. So how about a superhero costume at your next rally, eh?

How can you win using an internet-based method that couldn't work for Ron Paul?
February 15th, 2008
(0)
It's unfair to make this campaign similar to Ron Paul. First of all, Ron Paul sort of sold out by going Republican. He's an independent in my eyes. Secondly, how many people do you really think are potential voters in my district on the internet? And how many will actually come across my site or my video? Not many at all. I'm not doing this to win - I'm doing this to spread a message.

After hearing enough people whine and cry about the beard (you were just commenting though, thats ok), I have shaved it off - after three years of having it. Just another sacrifice I'll make to show people how important their needs are. I almost wish I could keep it in an alternate universe, to compare how many people would not vote for me because of chin hairs. Anyways, I appreciate the feedback. I'll keep my eyes peeled for any other candidates with beards -- they'll probably support what I have to say.

I watched that clip, and I really wasn't paying attention to what you have to say, but you keep shifting around. You need to stand still a lot more in order to look more professional and like you're ready to be in government. Grow the beard back too.

Sorry - as I said in the video, it was my first public speaking engagement. I was extremely nervous. I'll do my best to work on it. Also, due to the nature and priority of your comment, I've taped a makeshift beard back to my face using underarm hair.

Though there has been much stipulation that the Church of Scientology has brought about actual physical harm to people, it's still out of anyone's jurisdiction right now. It would not be my place to dismantle a religion, hence separation of church and state. Perhaps through me, though, and through the new changes I would make, it would have a little less power.

Any chance that I would endorse your candidacy and/or positions died when after reading through these comments and looking at your site, I realized that you removed any reference to anything negative about your past from your site. I don't live in your district, but I know people who do, and they won't be voting for you.
February 16th, 2008

You have just ruined my campaign.
February 16th, 2008
(-1)
You know, the good twist with the negatives is that the fact that you are overtly a criminal (in the past). This would mean that you would be less likely to be assumed for large scale corruption and embezzlement, because you'd be on watch. So the people would get a sense of security from knowing this, right? In any case, once again, best of luck.
February 16th, 2008

However, I read your site, and I noticed that there was nothing on social issues. I pose the question: Where do you stand on the social issues that have been raised up today?
February 16th, 2008
(0)
I'd like to keep social issues out of the government's hands as much as possible, and instead let /society/ deal with them. When the government starts trying to take care of everyone's problems, well...you know what kind of government that is.

Take a prominent issue today, such as gay marriage. In 1996, Hawai'i legalized it, but it was not recognized by other states. It seems odd that a marriage license from one state is not valid in another. Perhaps on some social issues it is best to take it to a federal level, and some should be reserved for states. You can't just leave all of those as state issues, Mr. Shaw.
February 18th, 2008
(0)
A very good point, sir, that's a tough topic to debate on. I think perhaps moving it to a Federal matter should be our last resort. We should keep the power in the State as much as possible, if we want to maintain democracy. I've got some ideas on how to find a solution for some social issues. PM me if you'd like to hear them.

Because Massachusetts likes the guy! C'mon, you and I both know that he's the icon of the democratic party, I mean the only senator that's been there longer than him is senator Robert Byrd, who will have his golden jubilee come January. It's thanks to this man that most democratic legislation is actually passed. Furthermore, Time magazine actually called him one of the best ten senators of all time. Think before you pick on Senator Ted Kennedy. Chappaquiddick... That's a cheap shot.

Best advice after watching the YouTube video, is to use less "uh" and "and..." in your public speaking. Im not being a prick or anything, just saying that that is something people really notice when someone's in the spotlight. It makes you appear unsure of yourself and what you're saying. Which in turn makes other unsure of you. Best of luck.

Were you convicted on the charges of hand gun theft, and if so, where are the stolen firearms? Also, about how much do you expect your reforms on drug law enforcement to save the state government? If this is not enough to eliminate the budget defecit, what other measures do you propose to eliminate the defecit? Are there any other government programs in Florida that need to be reformed? If these reforms result in a budget surplus, will you expand government services, cut taxes, or call in bonds?

To wit, Mr. Shaw, what _is_ your economic policy? Reforming drug law enforcement is no where near enough to have a real platform on economics.

Finally, I fail it, because it is not "defecit," but rather "deficit."

I was never convicted of any crimes. The guns were all returned to their proper owners -- all accounted for. As for an actual figure on how much it would save the State government, please allow me to return an answer to you when I can have a better approximation. I am not going on an "if" policy -- this will work. And if there are people that disagree, or have doubts, and would not like to support this stance, by all means that is their right.

This is indeed a dangerous route that I'm going with, but for this to work I have to be as fearless as possible. To answer your question as best I can, though, if this is not enough to eliminate the budget deficit, I have no other measures to propose to eliminate the deficit. I will most likely not expand government services, as I am a proponent of limited government.

To answer your very last question - was it an actual question or was it rhetorical? You may believe that reforming drug law is nowhere near enough to have a real platform on economics, but I do, and it's as simple as that. I feel that my platform sure beats the pants off the 5 other candidates for this seat who are all simply promising "Tax cuts, better education, better healthcare, etc.." I am very frustrated with how similar all the other candidates' platforms are. Nothing ever seems to get better.

Then do you propose to let the Floridian government keep floating bonds ad infinitum without ever paying them down? Such a practice is rarely sustainable.

If you are going to run for public office, then you can't refuse to answer questions because you don't like the way they are asked. I mean, you don't have a chance in hell of winning, but you have to have a thicker skin and be ready for tough questions if you want anyone to consider you seriously. I have my suspicions that you are just a joke candidate, but I'll assume you are for real. If so, then you have to dump the juvenile, "I won't answer because you're mean!" tactics. Time to grow up, junior.

And for the record, I can and WILL refuse any questions I don't want to answer on -----YTMND-----. Get real, bud. This is not a political forum. Heck, I would be surprised if even 1% of you were even my constituents. Stop pretending as though you have an upper hand on me.

Again, the most juvenile of responses. You walk in here and post your candidacy, then duck questions. If this is such a pitiful political venue, then why are you here promoting your candidacy? If you can't handle YTMND, then a real political forum will eat you alive. I would suggest you adopt a more professional attitude if you expect anyone to take your run seriously.

I'm sorry - what questions are you referring to that I have "ducked" ? What else would you like me to do? I had already asked for a pardon for the question in the beginning of this board, and I answered it best I could. You must be out of your MIND if you're comparing YTMND to a political forum. This is not a "professional" board. I suppose I should have separated politics from personal enjoyment, seeing as how people like you can't discern the difference. Hence, "The internet is serious business."

This is from your website. "John Shaw is in favor of the decriminalization of any and all illicit and illegal substances in the State of Florida." I don't mind legalization of marijuana, but when someone wants to legalize harmful substances like meth thats just crossing the line. The fumes created from meth when making it harm everyone around you like if you live in an apartment, and have you ever heard about meth labs exploding in houses and killing their neighbors? continued

Have you even taken more than 2 hours to figure out the consequences of legalizing all these drugs? There is no doubt that you are unprepared to run for office.

Legalizing meth is a bad bad BAD idea. Legalize it and crime rate will rise even more, murder, child abuse and overdoses will be more and more frequent. Marijuana on the other hand is not known for destroying whole sections of society. Legalize that and let them be. The rest of us can keep the country afloat.

"Have you even taken more than 2 hours to figure out the consequences of legalizing all these drugs? There is no doubt that you are unprepared to run for office." -- Prepared as I can be, bud. As I said in the video, prior to June of 2007 I had no political interest. That means that over the last 8 months I have been cramming as much information into my head as possible. The only reason why I didn't delay and wait to run is because the seat I'm running for is term-limited out.

I'm in favor of safety. If the growing of Methamphetamine proves too dangerous for home users to do, I would suggest it be created in controlled environments. Please believe me when I say that meth is reallllly hindering this platform. Remember, this is not about how dangerous a substance is, this is about personal freedom. If that personal freedom inflicts harm upon another human, such as growing meth would, then we would disallow the growing of meth, simple as that.

"Legalize it and crime rate will rise even more, murder, child abuse and overdoses will be more and more frequent." It is unfair of you to give such absolutes; no one really knows exactly what will happen, and this includes you. We can all take our guesses. My guess is that crime rate would DEcrease, murder, child abuse, and overdoses will be LESS frequent. So which theory is right?

I speak from experience of myself and others who have used it. I have been in 2 relationships where meth was used quite frequently. I do speak from a point of view, but it is one that is experienced with the subject. You may be right though. I cannot predict what would happen on a large scale with drug legalization. When I was using drugs, I would have taken a position closer to your own I am sure.

I do certainly wish meth simply never existed, but it does, and it might exist for some sort of purpose, albeit probably not a very good one. Regardless of my dislike for any of the drugs, I must look at it from an ethical point of view, and a logical one at that. Thanks for your feedback, and if you wish to talk some more just drop me a PM.

It doesn't really matter what I say. If you'd like my personal opinion on it, I'll be happy to give it to you. That's a major problem with politics, though. People let personal opinions dictate the way a government should be assigned. I'm not avoiding anything; I'm saying what I feel is appropriate.
