Barr campaign manager: ‘Bush showed incredible leadership’, criticizes Ron Paul and followers:

http://www.independentpoliticalrepor...and-followers/

Russ Verney, the campaign manager of the Libertarian Party’s presidential nominee says that President George W. Bush showed “incredible leadership as he stood atop a fire truck amidst the rubble of the twin towers to rally America.”

Verney then compares Bush’s “incredible leadership” to the “leadership” exhibited by Libertarian VP nominee Wayne Allyn Root in offering to illegally step down as Bob Barr’s running mate in deference to Ron Paul.

Yesterday, our vice presidential candidate, Wayne Allyn Root, offered to step aside to allow Congressman Ron Paul an opportunity to serve on the presidential ticket of the Libertarian Party and move the agenda of Liberty forward.

On the surface, a simple offer was extended. In fact it was principled leadership at its finest.

Then Verney goes on to criticize Ron Paul, saying the Campagin for Liberty’s historic announcement yesterday was not about “promoting the liberty agenda; it was about promoting a man.

It became evident to me after meeting with Ron Paul’s staff that this media event was not about promoting the liberty agenda; it was about promoting a man. That’s not what we’re in this for.

After rumors were spread in advance of the news conference that Bob Barr was dropping from the race - just to hype the event - I became even more hesitant to attend. Those tactics were unacceptable and when asked about it, Ron Paul’s staff simply smiled and said it would attract the press.

When I was provided a copy of Ron Paul’s prepared remarks just hours before the start of the planned news conference it became clear to me that the message Ron Paul intended to deliver was essentially to scatter the votes for the liberty agenda to the four winds.

His remarks not only encouraged anyone listening to support any one of four candidates, he also applauded ‘non-voters’. To me encouraging people not to vote is not principled leadership for the Liberty agenda.

I made the decision that attending that news conference was not consistent with Bob Barr’s principled leadership for the Liberty agenda.

Once I informed Ron Paul’s staff of my decision I was rudely informed that my decision would have permanent ramifications, I was personally threatened and Bob Barr was politically threatened. That’s a far cry from principled leadership.

Now, the battle lines have been drawn, says Verney, and those who stand with Paul are “cultists.”

One thing that did occur as a result of yesterday’s events is a clear separation of certain factions. Up until now, we have been dealing with two groups, those who want to advance the issues of liberty and those who have been drawn into a cult of personality.

The full text of the message is included below:

Dear Friend,

Before I move forward with an important report for today, I would like to recognize and remember the 2,819 men and women who lost their lives seven years ago. As a result of the attacks of September 11th, Americans came together, setting aside differences in order mourn our shared losses and assist our neighbors in need.

May we never forget . . .

In times of crisis, strength in leadership requires boldness of character, clear direction and firm resolve. As we witnessed after the attacks of September 11th, President George W. Bush showed incredible leadership as he stood atop a fire truck amidst the rubble of the twin towers to rally America.

While the quality of leadership is rare enough, principled leaders are few and far between. Those who do appear to posses the traits necessary to lead, for reasons only known to themselves, frequently choose not to stand on principle.

Yesterday, our vice presidential candidate, Wayne Allyn Root, offered to step aside to allow Congressman Ron Paul an opportunity to serve on the presidential ticket of the Libertarian Party and move the agenda of Liberty forward.

On the surface, a simple offer was extended. In fact it was principled leadership at its finest.

Wayne Allyn Root showed his deep commitment to the principles of our cause. Without hesitation or regard to the effort, time and personal funds he has committed to the issues of freedom, smaller government, less taxes and the Libertarian ticket, Wayne offered to step aside to allow another leader to step up.

I could not be more proud of his actions and selflessness.

As America is hurling towards crisis on many fronts, we need principled leaders like Bob Barr and Wayne Allyn Root. We have no time to waste on anything other than spreading the message of smaller government, less taxes, and more personal freedom issues across this nation.

That brings me to my next point.

Today our campaign is being criticized by a few people for my decision to not attend a press conference sponsored by Ron Paul’s political action committee. I thought I would take a minute to explain to you why I made that decision.

It became evident to me after meeting with Ron Paul’s staff that this media event was not about promoting the liberty agenda; it was about promoting a man. That’s not what we’re in this for.

After rumors were spread in advance of the news conference that Bob Barr was dropping from the race - just to hype the event - I became even more hesitant to attend. Those tactics were unacceptable and when asked about it, Ron Paul’s staff simply smiled and said it would attract the press.

When I was provided a copy of Ron Paul’s prepared remarks just hours before the start of the planned news conference it became clear to me that the message Ron Paul intended to deliver was essentially to scatter the votes for the liberty agenda to the four winds.

His remarks not only encouraged anyone listening to support any one of four candidates, he also applauded ‘non-voters’. To me encouraging people not to vote is not principled leadership for the Liberty agenda.

I made the decision that attending that news conference was not consistent with Bob Barr’s principled leadership for the Liberty agenda.

One thing that did occur as a result of yesterday’s events is a clear separation of certain factions. Up until now, we have been dealing with two groups, those who want to advance the issues of liberty and those who have been drawn into a cult of personality.

There are those who support a specific politician and then there are those who support the liberty agenda regardless of standard-bearer.

Bob Barr, Wayne Allyn Root and the Libertarian Party stand for the issues of personal freedom and responsible government. As they have proven, both Bob and Wayne are willing to lead or follow for the advancement of our issues.

Now is their time to lead.

As we move into the final 50 days of the campaign we are in place to make a strong impact on the future of our country.

At the end of the day, the number of votes cast in support of the Liberty agenda in the General Election will influence the national political agenda of the next four years.

If we do our jobs, work hard and give us much as possible until Election Day, our voices will be heard and our agenda of smaller government, lower taxes, more personal freedom and government accountability will be on the table for years to come.

I appreciate your commitment and dedication.

Sincerely,

Russ signature

We've been saying for weeks

We've been saying for weeks that Barr is a neocon plant. I'm not at all surprised.

Russ Verney is the RePUKEcan Establishment's mole

...and a saboteur of the Libertarian Party. [edit: ostensibly to undermine and destroy LP's standing as a viable alternative in challenging the monopoly of the two-party system]

Along with Shane Cory, Mark Ferguson, etc. Oust them on the rail.

Clean the f*cking Headquarter of LP in Washington.

Like Andrew Jackson's party and Theodore Roosevelt's party, LP's original design in principle has been subverted by gatekeepers for the Elite.

Bob Barr more news media than previous Libertarian candidates

Since Bob Barr was elected as the Libertarian candidate for President, his campaign provided more positive comments and interviews in the news media, about the Libertarian Party, than all the previous Libertarian candidates.

Continue the Revolution, wave and place President BARR signs.

We get positive response in our area with
President BARR wave and yard signs (80 cents)

Other than Ron Paul sites

I rarely heard mention of Barr or the Libertarian Party as having any impact on this election. This latest debacle is probably the most press he's gotten by far...

Sorry man.

But Barr is done. stick a fork in him.

No, as Russ Verney said,

we simply separated the cultists from the freedom lovers: "One thing that did occur as a result of yesterday’s events is a clear separation of certain factions. Up until now, we have been dealing with two groups, those who want to advance the issues of liberty and those who have been drawn into a cult of personality."

They must be paying you

They must be paying you well. Guess what? It still will have no effect here. We are a cult? No we are the revolution and Barr is and always has been a neocon.

I see no proof

from Barrf's voting record that he is a freedom lover.

I just got a donation request from Bobby BarrSinister today...

in the mail. Not sure how he got my info as a RP delegate. I will be using it to start a fire tomorrow night with my boys in our backyard fire pit. Had he sent me a postage paid envelope, I would have sent him a scathing letter. He's not worth wasting a stamp on.

So Did I

It even had my name on it. Who's selling our info?

NEO-CONS

all stay together and they try to persuade the sheeple that they are conservative, well I define them all as Fascist's.

"Freedom is a right that can never be won in war,only by each individual "

Since when did Barr/Baldwin

become the only two alternative choices here?

"Barr pissed me off, I'm voting for Baldwin"

As for me... I'll probably STILL write in RON PAUL just to make the statement!

Verney is....

a retread as I posted in another thread and it looks, according to your post, like he bores from within and eventually destroys the campaigns he outwardly "supports". See the 2000 Reform Party circus! Hmmmm....

Ron Paul is no fool! He probably saw what the Barr "campaign" was made up of from the get-go!

"Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom." Patrick Henry

Barr has jumped the shark~

Heyyyyyy..

Fonzy.

In the end, that's probably what's really going on.
He can't figure out why he's getting so little support, so he's lashing out. Guess what, there's your answer...

That sounds like Wayne Root

That sounds like Wayne Root talking. Just another neocon in libertarian clothing (the worst kind of neocon).

I was going to overlook the Root factor and vote for Barr. Not anymore.

not joining with barr and keeping from having a dog in this

fight lends some weight to his sincerety for calling the press conference and asking people to explore their 3rd party options. There was nothing at all selfish about that. Barr is clearly butt-hurt he didnt get the endorsement he needed to go past 3%.
