Spring Cleaning

September 5, 2005

There are just over two weeks left before the election. I have invested thousands of dollars of my own money into my campaign as Libertarianz candidate for Northland, as I believe so strongly in freedom. I have decided to raise some funds for the rest of my campaign in a slightly unorthodox way...

If I can raise over $500 in donations to my campaign, then I will cut my hair, currently shoulder length, to short-back-and-sides.

Moreover, if enough people donate, and I get over $1500, then I will shave my beard! Even Jasmine, my girlfriend of over three years, has never seen me without a beard.

This has not been an easy decision for me. I have grown quite attached to my hair, the facial part in particular. However, my campaign for the cause of individual liberty is much more important than petty vanity. :)

So, if you would like to contribute to a very worthy cause - the fight for your freedom - or if you just think I look like a hairy troglodyte, please donate to my campaign.

The NZ bank account number to deposit money into is:
National Bank
J.L. Pistorius

Use "HAIR" as the reference when you make the payment. Email me at [email protected] to confirm your donation. I can also arrange for other payment methods.

I will have a running total on my website. You can choose to be named and thanked publicly, or your donation can be be listed without your name.

Every person who donates over $50 will receive a free copy of the latest edition of the The Free Radical magazine ( http://www.freeradical.co.nz/ ). It is edited by famous freedom-fighter and media celebrity, Lindsay Perigo. In this issue, Lindsay says why he will vote Libertarianz, and why he does not consider it a wasted vote.

You can help the fight for your own freedom, while beautifying the world :) - just by making a simple donation.

In case you were wondering, no, this has nothing to do with Bob Jones:

I have since had a request by 'B' to set up an opposing fund, to save my hair! :) Therefore, the first fund to get to $500 will decide the outcome.

To keep track of how the fundraising is going, I have set up a new post:

    I propose a "Help Julian Save His Hair" fund. There is nothing more criminal than gorgeous long-haired guys cutting their hair off! Whichever fund receives the most donations will dictate what happens to Julian's hair.

    What? It doesn't look so bad.

    Oh, no. Wait. I was looking at the horse.

    What about getting rid of the hair and keep the beard? That way you can please all (being a politician!!), I hope that doesn't upset Jasmine! (my dear friend from uni)
