Adam Kokesh retracts his support from Bob Barr

Red-blooded freedom fighter Adam Kokesh, who spoke so stirringly at the R4R, and stood up boldly as a protester in the RNC convention, has publicly rescinded his support from Bob Barr.
He did this directly to Bob Barr's face at the Barr press conference today, because of his anger at Barr snubbing Ron Paul and the unity meeting.

Go Adam You tha Man

Doing what he does best.....HeHe

Like I said the other day

what was the attraction to begin with? Here is this articulate, young, passionate patriot as part of a Iraq veteran against the war and yet he was backing someone who not only voted for it but still defends it. Sorry, did not, does not compute. Why did it take today to turn him away. The confusion of today will pass away to tomorrow another day. Goodnight all of my fellow Patriots. Tomorrow will no doubt bring more questions to ponder and issues to sift through.

Here I thought McCain would destroy the Republican Party...

Turns out Barr will destroy what is left of the Libertarian Party first. Too bad I find their platform very close to my beliefs. About the only thing they can agree on is to disagree. Kudos to Adam for telling it like it is. The more I hear from this young man the more impressed I am.

It is

It is understandable that Adam would react this way, but I can see both sides. The Libertarian party does not want to dissolve into the others or become a watered down message, they are serious about what they believe and uncompromising. They see a serious future for their party. Dr. Paul is trying to expand the debate and push down the two major parties. Dr. Paul is trying to grow the third parties which will put pressure on the two major parties to seek those votes while bolstering the other options. Imagine if we had a broad spectrum of parties and true competition and debate were reintroduced. The Libertarians want success and growth now, and who can blame them. It's certainly not a reason to pull support of a candidate. They both have their approaches and I am glad they are attacking from different angles. This announcement however was not aimed at us, it was aimed at the unconscious voters who will be led to our mission as they discover the real truth of the issues. I am supporting both approaches which is common sense and certainly nothing to be angry about. Anger is foolish in almost all cases.

Yeah Sure Barr Supports

The WAR ON TERROR and THE WAR ON DRUGS. Who wouldn't want to uphold that knowing that both are pointless and not working only wasting money.

Bump

Dr. Paul cured my apathy

Ron Paul was right

Yeah!

I respect Adam so much, and was actually thinking about supporting Barr because of his endorsement. I am going to start looking more into Baldwin.

Great guy this Kokesh!

I've never seen him before this day. Great speech at the R4R too!

..........Kokesh explaining what had made him so angry. "Leadership is not just about knowing when to lead, but knowing when to follow," Kokesh said. "You failed that test today and I retract my endorsement of you."

That's ridiculous.

Leadership is leadership.

When someone is following, they're not leading.

Yep

Your still a moron. Go figure.

Wrong, only good followers

LOL

That's what those who want to control you try to convince you of. Don't fall that B.S. He was probably brainwashed with that in the military. It's not true.

Don't follow anyone. Think for yourself. Direct yourself.

How does it feel knowing

that people aren't falling for the trap that Barr and his Neo-Con buddies laid out for the freedom movement. You never told me how much you are being paid. Hell one of your buddies already fessed up that he was a paid Campaign Blogger for Barr already. You should know him he goes by the handle TheProducer here on the Daily Paul.

And when somebody such as

And when somebody such as yourself is spewing misinformation, half-truths and pro-statist, anti-liberty propanda, they're not telling the truth.

Which is your forte on the Daily Paul.

If someone can drop support of someone just because

he didn't attend a press conference, then that's an unstable person. How about supporting someone for their ideas?

how about you taking my phallace and ramming it as hard as you can into any number of orifices on your body.

How about supporting your word.

Instead of standing up your fellow man and attacking his position when you said you'd be there..

Micheal can you please delete this scumbag. at least make him get a new handle. something.

Stop the NWO....It's just illumi..Naughty !

I agree, Oruval

this slimy douchebag troll needs to put out of our misery. We need to cyber-assassinate his traitorous ass.

The man has serious cojones.

We need more people like him.

P.S. Petition for Barr to step down: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/RemoveBobBar/index.html

We need to get him into office!

"Dr. Paul is allowing the Ron Paul Revolution to wither," said Barr aide Shane Cory.

That quote is from near the end of the article linked by the OP.

The Libertarian Party couldn't be more wrong about this. After today I feel more energized and supportive of Ron Paul than ever.

I believe that what the Libertarian Party (leadership) and Bob Barr did today to our revolution actually backfired on them. They inadvertently lit a new fire under the @ss of our r3volution.
