Badnarik Arrested
Badnarik Website ^ | October 8, 2004 | News from the trail

Posted on 10/08/2004 8:36:12 PM PDT by diabolicNYC

8:38PM CST

The first report from St. Louis is in - and presidential candidates Michael Badnarik (Libertarian) and David Cobb (Green Party) were just arrested. Badnarik was carrying an Order to Show Cause, which he intended to serve the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). Earlier today, Libertarians attempted to serve these same papers at the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the CPD - but were stopped from approaching the CPD office by security guards.

Fred Collins reported to me from the ground that Badnarik and Cobb are in great physical condition and great spirit.

As soon as more details are available, they will be posted here immediately.

They should have arrested Kerry instead, for his admitted war crimes.

I guess there's at least one town where Badnarik can get arrested.

If they would have arrested Osama, Kerry would proclaim the "War on Terror is Over!"

Didn't Alan Keyes pull a similar trick during the 1996 town hall debate, chaining himself to the front door of the auditorium before he was dragged off screaming by the cops?

Is anyone voting for Badnarik? I understand that Libertarianism is a great idealogy, maybe even superior to Republicanism.... but I really don't want a lot of good conservatives to turn their back on the President because of fiscal isses. This election is too close for people making protest votes... its the equivalent of the liberal Nader voters.

Waste of time. He's (thank G-d) not in danger of actually winning, so all he'd do is take up time from those who might actually win -- and thus affect our lives profoundly.

That and we couldn't have our boy George shown up by someone who has acutally read the Constitution. A lightweight like Kerry is about the most the President could hope to win against.

Maybe he can read but several of his positions are definitely anti-states rights.

Eliminate public education, eliminate drug laws, eliminate state sponsored marriages.

Why not just let any U.S. citizen get up there and rant on national TV? It would be just like the drunks and homeless who get on the NYC subways and rant to a captive audience.

Well, this can't hurt the Prez. Hopefully, the fringe kooks, even Libertarians, will be so outraged they'll cast a protest vote for Nader, Cobb or Badnarik because of the Dims aggessiveness at shutting them out of the debates and trying to keep Nader off of the ballot in many states.

Everyone is concentrating on Nader, but don't underestimate the number of votes Cobb will get for his Green Party in this election. I hope that Nader, The Greens and The Libertarians get a total of 7% of the vote between the three of them; 5% of that will be votes taken away from Kerry.

Libertarians, with whom I often disagree, are among the few legitimate voices in the "loyal" opposition these days. This doesn't sit well with me.

Yes. In an interview this week he said it was America's policies that led to 9/11.

They are not legitimate; they have sold out to the pro-drug movement. So much for loyalty. BTW, the pro-drug movement is sponsored by Soros, the money-bag for the anti-Bush activities.

1. No welfare, no hand outs
2. Not friggin likely. Incest is still out.
3. legal yes. But not free. let those who would destroy their lives do so. It is after all, a free country. You'd also have to foot your own medical bills resulting from your habits.
4. No war on terrorism unless we got hit first. Instead of stomping all over other countries, we send hunter-killers in to kill the terrorists. Letter of M&R worked with Barbary. You think oil would be a lesser incentive?
5. Put a bad drug on the market and those suing you for damages would OWN you.

Depends on perspective....

No. How about over turning Roe V Wade and defunding government sponsored abortion mills?

Er...it's because only candidates with a reasonable chance of receiving Electoral votes should be up there, instead of every kook and freak with the $ to file an application to run.

Like the FedGov has done such a good job with those. Killign the NEA alone would be worth it.

Boo-hoo. Cry me a river. So only a few MILLION people are represented. What is the big deal? Where the debates so riveting that the addition of a couple of "amatures" would be too much?

Sending the United States Navy and Marine Corps in were what finished off the Barbary Pirates. Letters of marque and reprisal would be useless in modern times. Any mercenaries out there who would be willing to work for plunder? I hear that Al Qaeda has cell phones and cars and everything. And heaven knows that your average mercenary is as well trained as a US Special Forces soldier.

You're the one crying, not me, you "amature." :D Sorry, but to give kooks (especially such anti-American creeps) undeserved national exposure makes no sense.

Understand this: HE HAS NO CHANCE OF WINNING. NOT EVEN CLOSE. NOT ONE STATE, NOT ONE ELECTORAL VOTE. Most people -- sane people -- want to hear what the men who realistically might win have to say about certain issues.
