Kokesh for Congress: Healthcare Shrugged?

July 7, 2009

Intro: IVAW leader and anti war activist Adam Kokesh is now a legit contender for Congress. With the blessing and support of the Ron Paul Revolution, Kokesh is running as a Republican in New Mexicos 3rd district in 2010. The idea that the Republican party is an empty vessel came from a recent conversation between Adam Kokesh and Rand Paul. Both men are 2010 Congressional candidates. Both are libertarian Rand Paul is the son of Dr. Paul who is the man who is likely to run for the US Senate seat that Senator Jim Bunning is likely to vacate.

Ron Paul rejects McCain campaign’s plea for endorsement

Ron Paul Endorses the Third-Party Field

September 11, 2008

Brad Haynes  (Wall Street Journal) reports on the presidential race.

Rejecting a specific entreaty from the McCain campaign, Ron Paul extended his support to a field of third-party candidates this morning, highlighting their shared frustration with the two-party system.

“Presidential elections turn out to be a charade more than anything else,” Paul said, and so he urged his supporters to vote for candidates who would expand the debate beyond the major party’s platforms.

A phone call from McCain backer Phil Gramm yesterday was not enough to garner Paul’s endorsement and didn’t stop the Texas congressman from gathering the welterweights of the presidential race for an announcement of their common principles.

In addition to railing against the Democrats’ and Republicans’

control over national politics, Paul and his guests outlined four common principles they saw the major parties ignoring. The diverse coalition expressed their common concern over an increasingly aggressive foreign policy, the erosion of civil liberties, the growth of the national debt and commercial influence over federal monetary policy.

The candidates assembled in agreement were the Constitution Party’s Chuck Baldwin, a former officer in Jerry Falwell’s Moral Majority; the Green Party’s Cynthia McKinney, a six-term Democratic congresswoman who had made a “declaration of independence from this current political system;” and independent candidate Ralph Nader, whom many consider partly responsible for Al Gore’s 2000 loss to George W. Bush. Read the rest of this entry ?
