Kent Snyder Memorial

It was a great event today, seeing everyone come out and meeting Kent’s family was quite an honor. Bill Dumas played a video showing pictures of Kent from his early years, through the campaign. It had me going good for a minute. One thing I will never forget, and owe him a great debt for, was his ability to convey the freedom message quickly and concisely. I have yet to meet anyone that could convert people the way that Kent could. He helped convert me.

Liberty is needed here and now.

Kent Snyder taught us by example: Each of us must continue the fight for Liberty until it is restored & secured - until our dying breath.

Ron Paul on House Floor: “Iran is responding to our hostile rhetoric.”

A great video of Ron speaking on the house floor. It is ridiculous how the media has taken the whole Iraq rhetoric to a whole new level. The conversation in America has grown to be completely militaristic and hostile, without much regard or emphasis on diplomatic options.

We need to continue to look to Ron as the man who paved the way for Liberty in America!

P.S. I had a bit to drink tonight, we joked about it, but we all thought it was very interesting to see that Ron had changed his glasses style to be very similar to our beloved Bob Barr! Looks like I’ll be going shopping this weekend?

 

Kent Snyder 1959 - 2008

Kent was a huge inspiration and hero to many people here at United Liberty. His teachings through numerous appearances at Freedom 21 Santa Cruz Radio helped simplify and instill a strong libertarian foundation, showing us the light if you will, that is still growing to this day. Without this great man I would simply not be here today doing what little I am able to do for this great cause.

I agree wholeheartedly with Justine Lam who said it simply “Kent Snyder is my hero”.

Barr Gaining Momentum Online

Bob released a video yesterday shortly after the DC vs. Heller decision was announced. The video has been received VERY well online. He really goes over why it was such a good decision for Liberty lovers.

It seems to me his supporters levels are starting to surge forward lately. The Ron Paul campaign experienced this same effect around July of last year as the videos started to take off around the same time Terra Eclipse started doing the flash trackers. In fact, in July of 2007, the Paul campaign was in just about the same YouTube standing as Bob’s as I recall.

The Message of Freedom & Liberty

Bob Barr on Neil Cavuto

Passing the Baton…

… Barr or Baldwin? Marc Gallagher, at LibertyMaven, gives a convincing argument as to why Bob Barr is the obvious choice to continue the movement inspired by Dr. Paul’s campaign.

Ignoring media attention and the potential for more media attention for now let’s look at hard numbers where we can. The hard numbers we will look at are fund raising and meetup group support via meetup.com.

Ron Chimes In On Write-Ins

When Ron Paul was asked by Reason Magazines’s Dave Weigel about write-in ballots, he had this to say-

I don’t think that’s very productive,” Paul said of a write-in campaign. “They could do it, of course, but in most of the states it won’t count. If they can change the rules in a primary and not count all the votes, imagine what they could do with write-in votes!”

Paul: ‘People will have a chance’ with Barr

…is the title of Emily Sherman’s article at CNNPolitics.com. Speculation of who Dr. Paul might throw his support behind has run rampant on the internet, despite his claims that he doesn’t intend to endorse anyone. But recent comments from the good doctor have shown that he is heartened by Barr’s run and hopes he does well in November.
