RALLY FOR THE REPUBLIC!

I have been in Minneapolis for the last week, first for the IVAW/VFP national convention and then for the launch events for the Campaign For Liberty which culminated last night with the Rally For The Republic. I wish I could sit here and write about all the amazing experiences I have had recently, but there is someone who wants to get an IVAW t-shirt on the floor of the RNC! Duty calls!

I was not planning on speaking at the rally last night, but the organizers decided to squeeze me in at the last minute to introduce Aimee Allen. So I leave you with this:

I just saw your speech and I was amazed. The first thing I thought (besides "who is this man and is he still single? sorry it's the goatee I can't help it) ahem, anyway, that whoever this man is, he's GOING PLACES! Woohoo!

THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE!!!

Great speech. I'm a veteran and I'm with you 100%. My son was poisoned into autism by our government and I want these bastards out. They are continuing to poison our babies with mercury in vaccines and they are lying to us about it.

Sure would love a written transcript of the speech you gave last night....word for word. Can you post it on your site.

Wow!

Adam,

C-SPAN pointed their cameras at you at least three times, and both sides of your sign were clearly visible. The crowd tried to shout you down but the message was clear.

Fight on!

Awesome RNC pwnage!

You are a true hero and many people look up to you, please keep up the fight!

I would like to ask you a personal question that i would like to confront someone.

How do you feel as a soldier who put his life on the line to fight for his country about people who burn the American Flag?

Regards,
Dan.

You got lots of airtime on MSNBC during McCains speech tonight. Good work!

I have to say that if this was what you came up with after being "squeezed in at the last minute" you have got to be one of the greatest orators of all time. Kepp up the good work!

This isn't related to the above post, but to the protest at the RNC. I'm very proud people like you have more guts than me. You could've been detained that night and yet you stood up anyway.

You're not alone in your spirit, although not all of us have the courage that you have. Thank you.

I saw you on TV during McCain's acceptance speech. Great job brother! (the republicans don't recognize you yet? lol)

gratefulgraft said...

Dear Adam, I had the honor of meeting you in St. Paul after you spoke at the summit leadership group for Ron Paul's campaign for liberty. You are an inspiration! Last night, while I was watching the McWar fest, I could barely take another second and lo and behold, our hero shows up on camera with his signs, tshirt, peace signs and the bravest spirit in the room! You make us proud. Thank you, thank you!

bendru said...

It was good to chat with you a bit the other night at the Target Center. I was surprised to see you get on TV three times last night during McCain's speech, good job! The third time you weren't holding the sign, I assume it was taken from you? Hope you're doing ok.

You rock, Adam. Thank you.

*clearing throat I work for Fox, thus the word delegates, not delegate. Ah, censorship.

Another Angry Veteran said...

That's what I'm talking about! I just saw the footage myself as I don't watch mainstream news on a regular basis. You forced the issue onto the public forum pretty well there. They damn will didn't ignore you like they ignored all the other protests at the DNC and RNC

I loved your speech. It was very enlightening that our troops swore to uphold the constitution, not the government.

I would suggest that you lay off the take up arms against the government angle. That is liable to get you thrown in jail and we don't need to take up arms against the government.

We just need the military to refuse to take up arms against US citizens and other things which violate the constitution.

The fascist state rules through fear. If the members of the Military disobey orders, stand down and will not cause fear, the fascist will fold like origami.


We just need the the millitary to refuse to take up arms against US citizens and other things which violate the constitution.

hey do you know about jessica stover and project artemiseternal?

people were calling her the "Ron Paul of movies" but after Obama won the nom press switched to dubbing her the "barack obama of movies"

she makes compelling arguments about how media, propaganda and myth are important to things like society, culture and war as part of why story is important and often wielded to evil ends

thought maybe you might reach out to her - an alliance might be powerful to both your messages

washington and hollywood - taking the same message to both on both fronts, y'know?

Kay Dennison said...

I saw your speech at the Rally for the Republic, Adam and I truly believe that you are right! I have followed Ron Paul since the beginning and I am impressed with his message.

You keep doing what you're doing and I'll keep supporting you, okay?

I want my grandsons to live in a country where the Constitution is venerated and respected and young people like you will make that possible!!!!

Thank you!!!!!!!!!

Dear Adam,
A huge Thank You!! You were the only shining light during the dark & dismal McCain speech during the RNC. Also I just caught your interview moments ago with Brad, sitting in for Rhandi Rhodes. Thank you for telling the truth and for getting the word out about these criminals, Bush, Cheney, McCain, Palin and many others!
