    What party should Adam Kokesh run as for his 2020 presidential campaign?

    For the pro-political action RPFers (vast majority) think of this as a chance to bring us agorists back into the political camp.

    Party is the wrong word. I wonder if anyone has copyrighted the name Republican Orgy?

    I don't see why this would bring anyone back into politics. The pursuit of political solutions is inherently pragmatic. There's no point in playing that game if it's not playing to win.

    While I appreciate your healthy skepticism (to a point) I specifically didn't make a "don't run" option because I want to see the opinions of those who, like myself, believe his intentions are good.

    I dont want to rain on anybodys parade, but I'd consider a Kokesh for President campaign educational from the word go.

    A presidential campaign can't be educational if it's a nonstory. He'd be more effective hiring a ghost writer and putting out a good book with his name on it.

    Ron Paul did both, maybe Kokesh will do the same.

    And Adams relative celebrity will help him gain at least some attention for any campaign.

    The party wouldn't matter. It's not like reps or dems would let him close to any of their stages so it'll be an educational campaign, which is what Ron's mostly were. I just don't think I'd invest any time or money for a Kokesh campaign because I'd fear it could likely be misused to enrich someone trying to become a celebrity rather than agenda.

    Start a new party? Come on. Ballot access, people. Out of all the third parties only the Libertarians have a shot at all 50 states.

    He wouldn't get the Libertarian nomination though, it might be close, but after several ballots he won't get it. He's going to face a lot of internal opposition from that party. The POTUS candidate is the face of the party, and most would rather not be associated with his colorful past. I like Adam, but I don't think he's that popular in the LP.

    If he does follow through with his run, he should go Republican. Gotta work within the two-party system, no other option.

    just odd that 'someone' uses a handle glorifying Guy Fawkes would be so critical of Adam Kokesh....

    get it?

    Only thing that might explain your confusion is you don't know who Guy Fawkes is, and most likely just uses the VENDETTA theme because its COOL.....

    Kinda cute in an adolescent kind of way...

    carry on oh great and powerful 'radical'...lol.

    I'm tempted to say that he should start the Voluntaryist Party, but then again, I really would savor the opportunity to see him kick some neocon ass in the Republican debates.

    If this guy was banned from Ron's own rally, he will definitely be banned from the debates.

    I voted for Republican Party cuz I think that's how he'd get the most attention. Plus he's run as a republican before. But even I am doubtful he could get into the debates. Hope I'm wrong.

    IIRC, Kokesh has already indicated that he will run as an independent.

    I don't think he should run at all. Waste of time and his supporters pot money. Instead he should start his own reality show called "Dancing with the Tards". Now THAT he could at least be competitive in.

    Adam Kokesh is a undercover federal Agent!!
    I am well aware Of Guy Fawkes.... and his thoughts and actions, However I am protestant and would not agree with his ideology about Catholicism.
    Each person that gives Kokesh a split second of thought has completely wasted their time on earth. He is a complete fraud

    I like Kokesh but there's no way he'd ever come close to winning. He wouldn't even be nearly as successful as Ron Paul. Kokesh is a radical. I am too, of course, but the majority of Americans aren't. Most people think that even if the laws are bad they should still be enforced because inexplicable reasons. And as such, they will hate Kokesh. This likely includes some RP supporters, for better or worse.

    I'm not sure Adam is really cut out for politics. I'm a fan, but I don't think that's his thing. If he were to run, LP would probably be the least bad option.

    What's an agorist?

    For the record, I'd vote for Adam. I'm questioning his chances of even being considered (Which isn't the same as being supported) by 80+*% of the population. I'd still vote for him in a heartbeat. I'm in the tiny percentage of people that is actually awake.
