Statesman instead of politician

I agree on applying the term statesman after the politician has proved himself. The kid's off to a great start! If he continues this path, in my mind he would be a statesman at some point, just as congressman Ron Paul is a statesman, to me!

School's fine. Just don't let it get in the way of thinking. -Me

Study nature, not books. -Walton Forest Dutton, MD, in his 1916 book whose subject is origin (therefore what all healing methods involve and count on), simple and powerful.

Evan, I know your family

is very proud of you. Keep up the good work young man.


This is for all the RON PAUL DELEGATES in NEBRASKA and those who will be in Tampa:

It's simple, really...



I hope to have an opportunity to vote for Evan someday.

It is people like him that give me what little hope I have left for our countries future. Surprised he hasn't been 'disappeared' yet.

This kid has a great future. Really glad some of the other GOP honchos, like Mr. Baker, recognize that Evan and individuals like him are the future and should be treated with the respect they deserve. We need these young people.

Job well done, Evan. Thanks.

Evan is solid

Evan. If you are reading this- thank you. You are grace under pressure personified. I have no doubt that you have what it takes to follow closely in Ron Paul's footsteps. Im actually excited for your future!
You spoke truth without throwing mud. You carried yourself like a boss on national television. I really hope you decide to persue a career in politics. You are exactly what our country needs at this time. Im proud to be represented by you. Its safe to speak for my fellow patriots when I tell you that YOU are the face of the young generation we so desperately need. Thank you!

Evan is the man

Thanks man!

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

The next Ron Paul...

... unbelievable composure, erudite, mature... run, Evan, run!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the youtubes, AnCapM!

My slow old computer + dial-up can't handle msn.com videos: you gave me the gift of Rachel M's masterpiece journalism.

And, yes, Evan Kenney & others like him are THE FUTURE of America, the land of the free. . . whether GOP can be a part of it depends on how honorably they behave and treat the future-holders.

The only problem I have with

The only problem I have with this, is that Evan and many others are supporting the GOP/Romney after they act in this manner.

How can they ask us to "follow the rules" and vote for Romney (and by the way, the rules in my state just say that I am "allocated" to Romney), when they do things like this?

Honestly, if I were in a state like MA where they did this, there is no way in hell I would vote for Romney or any GOP person who supported those who did this. I would cross party lines to vote for Obama.

Why would I vote for Obama?

Because Fuck them, that's why.

(other states have treated Paul supporters more fairly, to varying degrees)

I don't know why this got

I don't know why this got voted down. If the GOP treats the Ron Paul people poorly why should they count on our support? My state is a bit different, but if they treated me like they treated our MA delegates, I would actively work against the party, if for no other reason then to punish them.

Stripping Evan of his delegate status is unacceptable. And if Mitt Romney's campaign had anything to do with this, then I would rather see Barrak Obama elected.

Perhaps the down checks

(I didn't down check it - your entitled to you opinion) was because you were putting down Evan for his honesty. He knew when he ran to be a delegate that he would have to vote for Romney in the first election. But he ran anyway hoping for a brokered convention, where he could vote as he wished. So the down checks were for implying that he should break his oath and vote for Ron Paul on the first ballot. The man is being honest and honouring his commitments, and that's a plus in today's world.

I can definitely understand

I can definitely understand him having that position before they had him removed. But if they state GOP is going to try to get dully elected Paul supporters thrown out as delegates, I would not be able to support them in any way what so ever.

That was huge...

I really respect Rachel now. I don't agree with a whole lot of what she believes and says, but I have to give it up to her for having a decent sense of fairness and acting on her gut to do her part to right what's wrong. She really went out of her way on this one to help us out everyone. And Evan Kenney, you're a baller. You know how to handle yourself with poise and confidence, given all that you've been through, I really respect the way you represented us on Rachel's show. You need to run for office and get elected. You're the kind of people that we need representing us.

Credit where it's due

she threw Evan a 20 mph slow pitch and he hit it out of the park. I appreciate Rachel doing this segment.


an intelligent young man, very good interview.

God Bless That Guy!

He not only stood up to the Mass. GOP machine, but he eloquently stated what the Liberty Movement REALLY stands for...Equality for ALL Americans...even for people like me and Rachel Maddow!


Fellow Ron Paul Supporters,

Please enjoin in this suit!!!
We delegates desperately need to win this so that we can vote for Ron Paul on the first ballot in Tampa.
It only takes a minute to send your information, & believe me, it will be the BEST minute you've spent all month.

Let's show them that we ARE the future of the Republican party!
Support your National Delegates.

Go do this now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cynthia Kennedy
National Delegate, Nevada

The RNC is scared, they have now got a deadline for new plaintiffs to sign up.


If you want to be part of this please email richardattorney@gmail.com with your name and your position and phone number, see examples below:

Joe Smith, Alternate County Delegate for Colorado, 775-XXX-XXXX would like to be a plaintiff
Nancy Cartwright, Precinct Coordinator for XXX County, 702-XXX-XXXX please put me on as a plaintiff
Kevin Firestone, National Delegate for New XXXXXX, 555-123-4567

The affidavits can come later. This must be done by the deadline set by the judge of 9 a.m. tomorrow.

NOTE: You do not need to be a national or state delegate, you just have to agree with the Federal Law that says all delegates are unbound.

Remember email Richard and include your name, your position, and your phone number letting him know you would like to be a plaintiff.

I think we need to get a hold

I think we need to get a hold of Charlie Baker. If in fact he is saying what the GOP is doing by replacing this kid with himself is wrong, we need to make sure people see this. Its important people realize that there ARE people within the establishment rejecting corruption.
