Seriously.... what the hell just happened?

OK, I've been in class all morning (I should be headed back right now actually)....

I saw parts of the press conference, but then I had to give my attention to class work.... unfortunately all I saw was a little bit of Cynthia McKinney's statement.... (is there a video/youtube anywhere of the whole thing).

Now I come home for lunch, and the beloved dailypaul seems to be in all out Civil War!

All I've been able to gather is that Bob Barr apparently shunned Ron Paul's press conference, tried to have his own, where he then dissed Ron Paul, but offered him VP, and then lost the endorsement of Adam Kokesh.

Meanwhile, Phil Gramm was trying to get Ron Paul to shut up?

And now the MSM is going crazy, the dailypaul is flooded with I Hate Bob Barr threads, and rumors are spreading like wild fire.

PLEASE! Someone, clear this up for me! What is rumor and what is fact?

At this point, I'd honestly like someone just to tell me who to vote for...

I think i would be more

I think i would be more concerned that barr would not sign the pledge of principles the rest of the candidates signed rather than he walked out of a press conference. oh yeah vote for baldwin.

my take

I reserve the right to govern myself.

Another bit

Ron Paul made this statement on the press conference with the other third party candidates http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1LMoWqXrE4 .
Bob Barr didn't turn up, though he was scheduled. As you hear at the end of the video Ron Paul still expected him to turn up. So Barr didn't even tell his old friend and mentor that he changed his mind.
What a sad person.

Sorry, avoice I'm just annoyed about Barr and those people who are still clinging to his wreckage.

Dr. Paul cured my apathy

Ron Paul was right

A bit of the truth

Obviously, with all the players out and about, not everybody got word of what was going on. And, of course, many were all too ready to jump to conclusions.

I've hated Bob Barr since the beginning!

and that's why you're a

Bob Barr showed his true neo-con Colours

Dr. Paul cured my apathy

Ron Paul was right

please. Real answers only.

please. Real answers only. I can decide for myself what I think of Bob Barr and his actions. I just want the truth.... not rumors and propaganda.

Maybe then

you have to wait for a few hours or days when the smoke of the battle field has gone:)
I don't know the truth either but it seems as if you got the main points.

good idea.... I simply do

good idea.... I simply do not believe all these rumors about Bob Barr... the way people here describe him, it sounds like he's the devil.

Bob Barr is a tool...wait..a tool BOX of the Establishment

Bob Barr turned his back on

Bob Barr turned his back on Ron Paul and our r3volution. Plain and simple.

...

Civil War on DailyPaul

Bob decided he did not want to share the stage with other parties
and was staging his own press conference...
very strange because 30 minutes before Ron's Unity conference
he was still going to attend...just changed his mind at the very last moment?
Who knows what is really going on.

Ron + Baldwin Cynthia McKinney and Nader made all great speeches
it was one of the most beautiful things I saw in my whole life~moved me to tears and Bob Barr not being there and speaking made many people very angry very angry so angry that DP site is now in as you correctly pointed out...

Barr thought it was bad campaign strategy

to appears as "one of the above."

That seems to be all it is.

The Best Part Was When

The best part was when the Russian press lady pointed out that they wanted to interview the alternate party candidates.

I hope the American press were properly humbled.

Go back to class. The rumors are flying. There was obvious miscommunication and misunderstanding and it will take time to clear up.

labor pains

nothing more. The revolution is right where one could expect it to be after a series of seemingly crushing setbacks. We were told "its about awareness" more than winning a longshot election. Here we are. I admit every day I come in here to see what spark of hope there is for a miraculous RP presidency - 1st it was the debates- SURELY people would see RP was the right man for the job, then the caucuses, then eventually a last ditch effort to sway the mccain delegates and a last ditch effort to something, ANYTHING in a third party.Are we fragmented, dissillusioned and disheartened? yup. Never forget tho- EVERY person out there that voted with their wallets in the moneybomb days- though in many cases at various points in time have dropped back, is still a beleiver in the cause- and once you beleive in that cause you dont go back. You cant. You may have a defeatist attitude- but you never "re-beleive" in a lie once you hear the truth. We have a sleeping army out there waiting to be awakened by the right rally cry. We will regroup and be polarised because the MESSAGE is true and isnt going away. Until then we should each do something within our own homes and workplaces- one thing a day- that testifies to our beleif in that message. I dont mean wear a RP pin on your shirt. I mean perform one act that would make you feel like you were living in a great country if you saw someone else doing it. Anything. Legislation on capitol hill is important- repealing bad policy is important- but none of that matters if the principles of liberty arent practiced in our own homes.

Live Free or Diebold

Here's what happened:

-John McCain asked for Ron Paul's endorsement (which of course Paul didn't give)
-Coincidentally Barr, the LP candidate, asked for Dr. Paul to be his VP (which would make today's conference impossible-and which Dr. Paul declined)
-At the last minute Bob Barr stopped his press conference appearence with all the other 3rd party candidates with no explanation other than scheduling his own press conference at noon
-Ron Paul and all the others talked about the Unity of all the candidates behind the same topics that are important for America (Barr was conspicuosly absent from this "unity")
-Bob threw his press conference calling Ron Paul a liar and his press secretary said "F**k off" to a reporter who asked by Barr snubbed the conference.
-Barr campaign came up with a new slogan "Killing Liberty Daily" a few others were tossed around like "F**k Everyone" , "Who Cares?", and "Cheese Eaters United" but they felt killing liberty was a good enough slogan.

Ironic, isn't it

they all want Ron Paul now, but where was everyone when we needed them.

CHEESE EATERS UNITED - HAHAAHAHAHA

...but they felt "Killing Liberty" was good enough -- nice!

Ron Paul is really well known by fewer than 13% of the populace (owing to media black out) and obviously because watching debates is not investigative research into a candidate -- RP fans like us have a short list of requirements as do all voters and if the candidate does not make the short list we move on. However, RP makes most peoples short list; where they get hung up is in our inability to make powerful short arguments in favor of the Liberty Vote.

We have to master this before 2012.

We need to get rid of all conspiracy theories (even if they are true) and focus on short arguments -- like seeds if they are potent will grow into self-knowledge and a new voting paradigm.

I'm putting together a book of 500 character arguments to "turn the tide" -- like a book of affirmations or short poems, one after the other.

It will slam specific candidates, major parties, the free-market vs regulated market, and lobbyists/CEO sell outs.

If you want to learn the 500 character arguement (which I didin't use in this post, hahaha) or would like to get down on this book -- shoot me an e-mail.
