Last night (Thursday, 16 November 2017), I attended Adam Kokesh’s TaxationIsTheft — Albuquerque event at Cervantes Restaurant and Lounge (5801 Gibson SE) in Albuquerque, where he spelled out his campaign for “Not President” for 2020.

Also attending were Adam’s Not Campaign Manager Ben Farmer, along with local libertarian luminaries Bill Koehler, Frank Martin and Robert Kruger.

Adam speaks!

For what it’s worth, I volunteered to be the New Mexico State Coordinator for the Not Campaign.

I first met Adam in June 2009 at a planning meeting for his campaign for New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District, and have been impressed with him ever since.

Afterwards, we went to his new touring RV, which the team had decided to name “No Force One.” He seemed a bit disappointed when I told him that this wasn’t the first vehicle with the moniker (one of Harry Browne’s campaigns had access to a small aircraft with the same name).

  2. Good job Mike Blessing! I live in Gun Barrel City, Texas these days, but I was born in Albuquerque and grew up in the NE Heights and later down south in Los Chavez in between Los Lunas and Belen. Thanks for stepping up to be the New Mexico State Coordinator. I help admin the Citizens Action Network on Facebook and we have 50 state pages along with a growing number of country pages and a bunch of “special interest” pages. I would like to offer you a position on the New Mexico Citizens Action Network which gives you another platform to promote Libertarian candidates and other NM news and info, but most important a place to promote FREEDOM and #Kokesh4NotPOTUS2020. I also have the Freedom 2020 page, Freedom2020 page and help out with Veterans for Kokesh page if you want I would be more than happy to add you on the two Freedom 2020 pages. I mean I could really use the help. Again, GREAT job stepping up to be the state coordinator and I did send you a friend request on Facebook, Frederick H. Stralow – Rick @fhstralow. I look forward to your response and I glad to have you on the Team! #Stradog in Gun Barrel City, Texas
