*Bob Barr The Enemy Of The Liberty Movement?*Submitted by legalizeliberty on Wed, 09/10/2008 - 12:06
What did Jesse Ventura say during the Rally?
"popular speech does not need to be protected because it is already popular it is the unpopular speech that needs our protection"
Therefore I stand in the defence of Bob Barr he today became quite unpopular on this site even as I can read this at http://www.campaignforliberty.com/
The strongest message can be sent by rejecting the two-party system, which in reality is a one-party system with no possible chance for the changes to occur which are necessary to solve our economic and foreign policy problems. This can be accomplished by voting for one of the non-establishment principled candidates—Baldwin, Barr, McKinney, Nader, and possibly others. (listed alphabetically)
This comes from Don Rasmussen, Events Coordinator for C4L
The following reflect my personal feelings and is not endorsed by Dr. Paul or Campaign for Liberty.
I am deeply disappointed by Bob Barr's decision not to participate in today's press conference just as I have been disappointed with the Barr campaign throughout this election cycle.
The idea that he was busy is absurd. I am sitting in the National Press Club right now waiting for his hastily called press conference to begin. This is the same building where Dr. Paul's presser just ended. Barr committed to participate, but had his campaign manager call us minutes before it started to tell us that Bob thinks "it just isn't worth it." I look forward to hearing him explain how breaking a promise to Congressman Paul constitutes a wise campaign strategy.
It is my great hope that the alternative parties will present the American people with quality candidates that offer a real option. Clearly the Libertarian Party has failed to do so. Bob Barr has repeatedly broken his promises to Dr. Paul, showed up uninvited at C4L events, and made statement contrary to Dr. Paul's beliefs while still claiming the mantle of heir to the R3VOLution.
