Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) March 08, 2012
Following a successful march on the White House on President's Day under the banner "Veterans for Ron Paul," three Iraq War veterans have announced the formation of Veterans for Liberty Super PAC. This week, the committee announced the organization of a march on the Republican National Convention in August to lobby delegates to support Paul in the all-important second round of voting at what many are now certain will be a brokered forum.
According to organizers, "The fate of the nation will be in the hands of those several hundred delegate swing voters. They will have to choose between standing with the grassroots of the party or the establishment that has demonstrated the attitude of Henry Kissinger, who famously said, 'Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.'"
Adam Kokesh, Zakery Carter and Nathan Cox, all veterans of the Iraq war, released a statement today claiming that the mission of their newly formed Veterans for Liberty Super PAC is to ensure that Ron Paul is elected president. They are calling for veterans and active duty troops to join them at "FOB Domestic Defense" and to be present as a lobbying force for the duration of the convention.
Ron Paul has received more campaign contributions from active duty troops than all other candidates, including Obama, combined. The message of the event is simple: Ron Paul is the choice of the troops. The only question: Will the convention delegates side with the troops and the grassroots of the party or the establishment?
For many of Ron Paul's devoted supporters, this event has a special significance as it may be the last chance they get to march for him. As the hosts said in their open letter and call to arms for the American people titled "Veterans for Ron Paul … Fall In!:" "To our fellow veterans, your oath to the Constitution did not come with an expiration date and your country still needs you. … This may be the last chance you ever get. Will you stand with Dr. Paul? The last time veterans marched for Ron Paul, two men raised a brigade … Will you help us raise a division?"
