Is Kokesh a Kook?

He's advocating for convention chaos, even though Dr. Paul wants decorum and calm. I think he's a bee in the collective bonnet.

second that

I felt the same way when watching this video. I had thoughts of going down to Tampa and seeing this going down to Tampa militia style. He might be cool but he's just too jacked up for my comfort. No offense to any Kokesh's fans.

I hope we are all a bit unstable

I'm in a revolution, not just an election...Sorry I don't agree with your position today...Maybe, and I hope that day never comes, I will think along your same lines but until then I want the "unstable", well trained, combat hardened, true believer on my team... This week playing nice didn't work so well and it just breaks my heart and, quite honestly, scares the S--- out of me. This election is our LAST chance of peaceful resolution to an unjust tyrannical Government taking our God given rights that were secured by our founding fathers...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!
Rosa Koire for for President!

I haven't trusted him since day one

Just something about the guy.

He is burned out for sure.

He needs to step back now and take a chill pill (aka, a nice long beach vaca).

He went too far, way over the line.

That happens to some people, most just check-out quietly for a while and before they make fools/by-words of themselves in public.

He must accept his fate now. If he truly loves liberty he will step out of it for a year or so, maybe 3-5, and give others a chance to do their part absent this unwelcome and horrendous distraction.

You oughta be ashamed of yourself.

Adam Kokesh is a Patriot

Hope to march beside him in Tampa. Go Adam Go

This is stupid, Why criticize

This is stupid, Why criticize Adam Kokesh when he is a devout Ron Paul supporter and doing everything in his power to spread the message of Liberty...Adam is great, if you don't like him..DON'T WATCH HIM...simple as that....maybe you would prefer someone who rolls over at the whim of "those that be"...let me assure you that is not Adam, he is in it to win it, no matter what Dufus Benton said. A Revolution is not a quiet peaceful occasion.

Kokesh the scapegoat flavor of the day?

*whistle*......*boom!*...dropped a downvote bomb on ya :)

Kudos to Kokesh, I say. He's done more for the liberty movement than I've ever dreamed of doing. Thanks to ALL of you that tirelessly plod on, day after day, rain or shine, for the love of liberty. Yes! All of you that keep on plugging away, never to back down, constantly standing up for what you know is true and good. F-U to all the finger-pointing sissy $hit....there's a r3VOLution going on, let's focus people! I'm in it to win it! We're going to win this!!!!

These bummer posts are a thorn in my collective @ss.

Carry on.

Really....WoW?

I'm not being negative. A bee in the bonnet? Really? Bennett by the grace of god married into the family and Ron like all good inlaws gave him a chance. Can anyone tell me who the orginizer of the 08 bid was? I can't. I do remember all the homemade signs and thousands of people talking standing in the rain begging just to google Ron Paul. This movement has always been run by the people thats what makes it so great. It truly is We the People. I don't want to disrupt but Adam makes the all important point: " It's winner take all." I want to win if we can do it civilly great but when a 70 year old comes after me to disenfranchise me sorry civility says bye-bye.

Adam Kokesh is a great

Adam Kokesh is a great speaker for our movement. And he's right we need a backbone at the convention we aren't going to take this country back by licking the boots of the GOP establishment.

Also, he reaches a different audience than Alex Jones can't reach because of his screaming and ranting and exposing government/elite conspiracies (i like it but many don't). He also gets many listeners Mark Koernke can't get because they are scared of the militia movement and care how the corporate media depict it as.

Adam is breath of fresh air.

So cough and find your body parts and maybe you can all man up in Tampa...

Adam Kokesh is hostile to

Adam Kokesh is hostile to Christanity, supports violence, and the secret service has not yet knocked on his door. Enough said.

The entire liberty movement has had guys like Kokesh in it for 40 years. This is why the liberty movement IN AMERICA hasn't done well.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

What the... ? Oh, I get it.

What the... ?

Oh, I get it. It's because he doesn't favor Christianity, huh?

Wow,

look at all the comments on this thread. More than not are down right negative, and slaps the poster in the face. Why do that? To form resentment? It doesn't further any cause but just that, to get people to dislike others. We don't need that. Just cool it will ya? If you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all. That could be said for posters too.

agreed, many people like

agreed, many people like Adam's style, I prefer to listen to other speakers when given the choice, no disrespect to anyone, that's just my preference

Remember when

the Robamabots weren't on the Daily Paul?

Those were the days.

Hang in there, Adam. We know who our FRIENDS are.

...whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain — that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist!

Kokesh is cool, your the Robamany kook

Maybe he should

When the SHTF

Kokesh will be on the front line, fighting the impossible fight, on the very behalf of those who once slandered and accused him.

I thought t was just common knowledge that he was all along. EVERYTHING about him screams KOOK.

If Kokesh want to help RP

win the election, he should stay away from the Convention.

Although I heard there will be a large ex-military presence there, in support of RP.

Yes there Will!

He is the organizer of the troops going to Tampa in support of Ron Paul. you can support that effort here:

He also conceived of and organized the Troops march on the White House on President's Day.

Adam works his ass off for Ron Paul. I cannot help but wonder what his detractors here did today for Ron Paul?

I respect Adam Kokesh

I don't care for his anti-Christian rants and many of us have taken him to task for it. The guy can think whatever he wants though. He is a great speaker at times and has really sparked a good following in the liberty movement. His efforts to literally rally the troops for Ron Paul deserves much respect in my book.

I would say though that he is only partially "awake" and does not fully realize the depth of corruption that our government operates under. Probably an effect of being a former brainwashed military personnel. Give him time and he may be an excellent asset to the overall libertarian movement.

"...I would say though that

"...I would say though that he is only partially "awake" and does not fully realize the depth of corruption that our government operates under..."

this is very close to the exact opposite to the truth.

For a RP fanboi to call a "RP-sympathetic-yet-not-idolizing" voluntaryist like Adam naive regarding the depths of corruption (and the futility of playing-nice) is incredibly ironic.
