Foreign Policy

Warriors for Peace


Remember Adam Kokesh, the Iraq vet who got in trouble for wearing part of his uniform to an antiwar protest? According to Holiday Dmitri's profile of him in Radar, he's a libertarian:

Kokesh considers himself more conservative than his compatriots in the peace movement. He always votes for the Libertarian Party candidate, and was the president of the Libertarian Club in college. His political hero is Ron Paul.

Whole story here.

  1. Does that mean we teach him the secret handshake now?

  2. Before you know it, we’ll be in triple digits.

  3. To quote (or probably misquote) the new HBO show with the Conchords, “Thats not triple digits, thats just 3”.

  4. He also was in several classes with Reason contributor John J. Pitney, Jr. As was I, which is the only reason I even know that. Apparently he was an interesting enough figure even back in college that, during a simulation of Congress in which Adam Kokesh played Ted Kennedy, he heard the testimony of a friend of his playing the role of…Adam Kokesh.

  5. Well, that explains why he had to be silenced.

  6. Damned replicants.

  7. This gives me a serious case of the ideological warm and fuzzies.

    Like when a Marxist finds out that a local bag man is down with the struggle.

  8. jimmydageek,

    I take it you’ve seen the results of highnumber’s V-K test. Who knew?

  9. PL,

    I always suspected that was the case. Even more so after seeing his offspring, Smallface.

  10. Disgusting what he did to VM. Though I guess they both managed to survive. Dr. Urkobold got too drunk on the Amontillado to bury highnumber, as it turns out. Oh, well, so long as highnumber’s slaughter is limited outside the Urkobold family, who are we to judge?

  11. How is being a libertarian more conservative then the leftists?

    Last I checked we have multiple generations living under the same failed socialist state programs conceived and codified some 40 to 70 years ago.

  12. I use to have compassion for individuals who were “brainwashed” by

    the likes of “Rudi McRomney” and cousin “Freddie” Plus Dem

    Relatives “Obama” and “Hillary” (all of them CFR’s)?… However,

    now I can only feel sorry for them..

    Leadership is Action Through *Example Not Position…

    (It is not a position of power nor being in the right place at the

    right time, neither define leadership).

    It is defined by setting the example through taking action on such

    Leadership Traits as Truthfulness! Honesty! Fidelity!

    Ron Paul Has Acted Admirably On All These Leadership Traits:

    “Truthfulness” first and foremost? Then: Principle, Integrity,

    Honesty,* Fidelity (to their oaths), Honor, Virtue, Compassion,

    Courage, Vision, Wisdom and Faith.
