Adam Kokesh - Why I support him...Submitted by ChristianAnarchist on Fri, 11/08/2013 - 10:55
I've only met Adam a couple of times (he did a promo for the Vet's march on the convention in my Ron Paul Liberty Corvette) but I am impressed by his sincerity and honesty. Now I'm sure he has some problems (don't we all?). I can't believe that he's up to sneaky tactics or harm to the liberty idea which he strongly promotes and I feel is engrained deep in his soul. He got in deep and I'm sure that most vets believe that their "government" (a fiction) would, when push comes to shove, would side with justice. As an old man, I know that this is far from the truth. I've seen way too many people go to prison for long terms (my friend Irwin Schiff and Ed and Elaine Brown for example) for taking a stand for liberty. Of course the mistake that all these people made was assuming that justice can be found in the court systems.
IT CANNOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I need more exclamation points)
Anyone who takes a liberty stand will not find any satisfaction in our courts unless they get an ally on the jury (very unlikely they way they stack the juries). Jury nullification is a fantastic idea and I even wrote an article that was published in the Seaside Oregon newspaper back in the mid-70's (I have a copy of it). I wrote the article after I was amazed by what Lysander Spooner wrote in his "Essay on the Trial By Jury". Jury nullification is something we all need to promote but we can't be too confident as in these high profile cases I'm sure that the "government" (a fiction) will make sure that ALL 12 will be friends of the court or otherwise bought out. "They" can't afford to lose these cases as the rabble will see them as weakness and will start to actually believe that their rights can be protected from violation by the goons.
We don't know what happened to Adam while in lockup and I doubt that he will be able to tell us (either through a gag order or his own restriction on letting it all out through his misplaced concern about what others might think). I know that if I am subjected to certain treatment (torture comes in many forms) that I will confess to killing RFK and Lincoln. The human mind can be conditioned and broken and although I don't think Adam has been "broken" I'm sure he was presented with two possible outcomes and chose the wiser path.
Don't tell me you guys know what he's been through because only Adam knows the answer.
I love you Adam...
