“60 Seconds For Bob”

In Libertarian, Libertarian Party-US, Libertarian Politics, Media, People in the news, Politics, Presidential Candidates on August 5, 2008 at 2:27 pm

The following is an email sent to those registered with the Bob Barr email list.

Dear Friend,

Yesterday, I asked you to tell a friend about Bob Barr and today we have an additional 294 folks who have subscribed to our e-mail list.  Good job!

60 Seconds for BobNow for today’s task: YouTube!

YouTube.com is an incredible place to get the word out about our campaign.  They have even created a special section, YouChoose, to highlight presidential candidates.  Unfortunately, they are currently choosing to highlight only John McCain and Barack Obama.

All other candidates, including Bob Barr, are listed under “More Campaigns” and are mixed in with congressional and state campaigns.

Before we start complaining to YouTube about evident bias that favors the two-party system, we need to do our part and show that we deserve the same treatment as McCain and Obama.

So here’s the task:

1.    Go to YouTube.com and login or create an account.
2.    Visit Bob Barr’s YouTube page here: http://www.youtube.com/user/BobBarr2008
3.    On the left hand side, click on the yellow “Subscribe” button.
4.    Hit play on one of Bob’s videos.

That’s it!

Later today when you have more time, watch as many videos as you can.  The more video views that we have, the higher we climb on the “YouChoose” page. Right now we are in 19th place with 379,675 views.

That does it for today’s “60 Seconds for Bob!”

In Liberty,

Shane Cory
Deputy Campaign Manager
Bob Barr for President

P.S. In order to get you more involved in the progress of the campaign, I want to include a few campaign statistics at the bottom of each day’s message.  These are some of the numbers that I personally review each morning to measure the strength of our campaign.

Some are impressive, others are not, but with this transparency and reporting, I hope that it will help you be more effective in your activism for our presidential candidate.

I have no earthly idea why anyone would think this is a song that libertarians would enjoy – and perhaps the person who posted it doesn’t realize how libertarians view immigration, and just looked for blogs where “immigration” was a tag – but we received a comment on the “A Conversation With Mike Gravel” article, asking us to post this video.

Senator Gravel is for completely open borders, of course, so either this gentleman read the entry and disagreed with that stance, or didn’t read the entry and made the assumption that Senator Gravel is against immigration. It’s really unclear at this point why he posted it here; perhaps he will stop back by and fill us in on his motivations.

That being said, I am a big proponent of the arts, and like to support struggling musicians and songwriters whenever I can. So I thought I’d be a nice gal and post it as he requested; and perhaps in exchange, some of our readers may wish to educate this gentleman on libertarian views of immigration.

Here is the comment, as received:

Hi,

Can you please place a link on your website / or blog; to this Take Back Our Country Song it’s a patriotic song that is very inspiring, and truthful. I wrote this song after being fed up with what I see happening in my neighborhood and to our country daily on the news.

I am just an ordinary citizen that went away to serve at age 19. And I am sick and tired of the lies and chaos our ELECTED SELLOUT OFFICIALS has put this country into. So I wanted to do my part, as a soldier of the USANG, I wrote this song and put it on this video.

My state Louisiana was hit hard by hurricane Katrina and hundreds of illegal aliens moved into our community took away jobs that we Americans were ready to do, and now crime has gone thru the roof. I am sick and tired of these people in my neighborhood and hanging out on our street corners. WE MUST DO SOMETHING TO PUT A STOP TO THIS!

Please check out my video Take Back Our Country Song on YouTube.com here’s the link. And FORWARD it to everyone on your email list. This is my way of fighting back and giving back to my country.

Please, I served my country in the US Army National Guards, and I hate what’s happening to our country. We must do all we can to Take Her Back!

Thank you,

Take Back Our Country

The YouTube description of the song is as follows:

Get your copy of the Take Back Our Country song burn it to a CD and get ready to PLAY IT LOUD on May 2008 this is the next planned march of the SPAM (Spanish People Advocacy Movement)! WANTED: Established Male Artist, Establish Male Bands wanted to sing this song! Let’s negotiate you putting this song on your next album release! I am not a singer; I need someone to sing this song for me with a band….etc…. Send me your videos at, mrcfunds@bellsouth.net but you got to get the song first.

This is my way of doing my part to fight this illegal invasion of our country. This video is a National Boycott against illegal immigration and everything it stands for. All Legal People of this land know there is a right way and a wrong way to do things. And “The American Axis of Evil” know they have done this wrong! (The American Axis of Evil 1. The President 2. The Congress 3. Anyone who thinks illegal immigration is ok, this is done all for GREED. You don’t sell out the country that I served in proudly USANG FOR MONEY! HOW MANY BILLIONS DO DICK CHENEY need? This is harming this nation. Most of our United States Representatives have allowed these illegal aliens to linger in our country. WE THE LEGAL PEOPLE of the United States demand that you DEPORT everyone that has entered illegally! They must come in this country the right way!
