-35 votes I do NOT support Adam Kokesh's armed march in DC

The Petition (currently 925 signatures)

Whereas the 2nd Amendment recognizes the right of the people to keep and bear arms, and whereas the right to keep and bear arms need not be demonstrated, and whereas Adam Kokesh's planned armed march into Washington DC is an unnecessary and dangerous provocation that may be used to demonize guns and gun owners, the undersigned petitioners, while supporting the right to keep and bear arms, state their opposition to Adam Kokesh's planned armed march into Washington DC on July 4th, 2013.

These people will not support gun rights later when it mattered, they will give up their guns when they are ordered to do so. You all need to draw a line in the sand. If you don't draw the line to be crossed, you will push it back forever and always talk the talk and never walk the walk. These people who flat out refuse to endorse those who's lines have been crossed, will never draw their line, they are not patriots.

Is it common to petition against an individual?

It reminds me of that "smoking" video from the front page. I don't necessarily like what he's planning on doing, but I'm not planning to be there so I really don't care. Will this petition be e-mailed to him or something? I'm actually a little curious about what the petitioners plan to do with the petition and why they think an individual should be swayed by the will of others.

Alex Jones did it

Remember Pier Morgan?

Educate the masses, and win in the end.

He was petitioning the government to deport the guy

He was petitioning the government for redress of a grievance; precisely what it's intended for. (not that it ever amounts to a hill of beans either way)


Jones mentioned specifically that the point of that petition was to raise awareness of the issue and his position. Having read some of the comments here, it seems that perhaps the motivation of this petition is similar.

The position they want to push is that "Everything is OK; we really don't need the right to bear arms. Don't make waves."

I can understand the sentiment

to want to beg him to stop if he and the marchers might get killed and nothing good has a chance of coming from it. A petition is an efficient way for a lot of people to beg him without it crossing into harassment.

Defend Liberty!

I will not sign that petition.

"Political action, to be truly beneficial, must be directed toward changing the hearts and minds of the people, recognizing that it’s the virtue and morality of the people that allow liberty to flourish"

"This is a powerful idea that gives a broader perspective to the libertarian mission. The Progressive era of big-government corporatism is coming to an end. It is ending not just in policy, but in the hearts and minds of people everywhere. Ron Paul announced that we have already entered an age of liberty and we are just seeing the last vestiges of the old guard scrambling to prevent the inevitable."

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

wonder which 501 (c) (4) spent money on this...

So we get 1 million spinless,

So we get 1 million spinless, jack-boot licking worms to sign a petition to ask a rebel who doesn't give a @#$% about your inspid pussy opinions to be a good little subject and obey the UNCONSTITUTIONAL laws of tyranny.

Exactly what outcome are you hoping to achieve with this?


ok, so it gets a million signatures, and then what?

Is there a petition to support the march I can sign?

Nothing I have seen in numerous past viewings of Adam's videos and speeches has given me any indication that Adam is not sincere or righteous. I don't agree with every word out of Adam's mouth, but most. I understand that a real armed march on DC could end up very bad and lead to many bad things for the Liberty movement.

The most important aspect of the build up to the date of this operation is to make visual to our government employees, that we are dead serious in our intent to stop the Tyranny of the federal government that's putting us on the road to national destruction and hardship, and we're not going to take it much longer.

Perhaps the groups intending to march should have armed practice marches in local towns on weekends leading up to the march date as part of the psychological operation.

On the actual date of the march, have all marchers carry plywood AR-15 cutouts of rifles to march with. Make this announcement quietly to marchers and disclose the only thing that will be carried by marchers that 4th of July day will be the plywood AR-15 cutouts painted black and can have customized designs. Make the plywood fake firearms announcement public in a press release just days before. Video all marchers to confirm they are not carrying lethal weapons as evidence in case anything happens. This demonstration can be framed as a readiness Drill, and could add thousands in numbers of marchers.

This is just my get out of jail free idea, saves face, and nobody gets killed this time.

Really, and what exactly would be the point of an ARMED march using plywood? Geeze, seems like the "supporters" are grasping at straws here. It's a terrible idea, totally unnecessary, and could seriously hurt the Liberty movement. what would Ron Paul do?

They do serve to crystallize the decision making process.

Whether they are signed or not, petitions seem to motivate people to take some kind of action, either positively or in this case, negatively with the down votes.
