Solie for Kansas House

Welcome to Peter Solie for Kansas House. For the first several weeks of this campaign I had a list of social media with the universal “no” symbol over it.
Not here. Twitter, Facebook and YouTube have repeatedly banned individuals because their speech was not acceptable. Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson, The New York Post and thousands of others have been banned and that is unacceptable to me. It should be unacceptable to you!
For now, this website is the beginning and end of social media about my campaign. I am open to establishing a Telegram, Locals or Rumble account. If this is to happen I need a solid volunteer to manage the account. Send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to be the person to establish and promote my social media.
At the Libertarian Party of Kansas Convention in late April I asked 2020 Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate, Jo Jorgensen, how she balances the need to communicate with the public via social media with the bad behavior of social media companies blocking users because of their political speech. She replied something to the effect of, “we need to meet people where they are,”
I’ve thought alot about her response over the past week and determined that I need to suspend my objection to the bad behavior of the social media companies and “meet the people where they are.” I can now be found on FaceBook, Instagram and Twitter.
I continue to believe that these companies have been unfair to people whose political policies they disagree with. All voices are necessary for a true political debate to occur. That includes things that are not true, disinformation and lies. Yes, lies. If someone lies and I know that it is a lie, it tells me everything I need to know about them. Others must be free to lie and if they do… I will shine a spotlight upon it. If someone in Palo Alto decides that a “lie” cannot stand, then I am kept from knowing the character of these speakers. The only solution to misinformation is more speech, not less.
I look forward to interacting with the residents of the 109th district. Please share my posts on your social media. Together we can share the message of liberty to the people of north central Kansas.
