A group of veterans and active duty soldiers are set to march to the White House in February to show their support for Ron Paul and to turn their backs on the current puppet in chief, Barack Obama.
The group, Veterans for Ron Paul 2012, was co founded by longtime Libertarian activist Adam Kokesh. A press release by Kokesh explains the groups plans:
On President’s Day, February 20th, 2012, the founders of Veterans for Ron Paul 2012, Nathan Cox and Adam Kokesh, will lead a formation of veterans and active duty troops who support Ron Paul’s candidacy for President of the United States from the Washington Monument to the White House. Upon arrival at the White House, they will do an about face to turn their backs on the President, and render a hand salute to a folded American flag surrounded by family members of military personnel and veterans. They will hold the salute for as many seconds as troops have died under the Presidency of Barrack Obama.Kokesh has long been an advocate for freedom and liberty and in a speech given last Saturday he outlined the fact that the military supports Ron Paul over all the other GOP candidates and Barack Obama.
The purpose of this event is to make it clear to the American people that Ron Paul is the choice of the troops and the candidate who will have the greatest support from those he would lead as commander-in-chief. This is already evidence by the fact that Ron Paul has recieved more campaign contributions from active duty service members than all other presidential candidates combined, INCLUDING Barrack Obama.
