GOT ADAM!
Blowback Comes Home to New Mexico

I suppose I should mention that I’ve been an admirer of Adam’s speaking skills and principles for about a year now, since we of the LPNM first heard of him. Then-State Chair Ken Cavanaugh had spoken with him about running on the Libertarian Party ticket at that time. I went to his house in Santa Fe in June 2009 for an organizing meeting.[2] I went to his Independence Day event at Santa Fe College on 4 July 2009 — that was where he made the official declaration to run for Congress as a Republican (about 12:15 AM on the 5th, actually). I was the one who got him scheduled as a guest on Hemp TV in August 2009.

I wasn’t exactly surprised when Mullins jumped into the Republican primary against Adam — the GOP has a history of running primary challenges against libertarian-leaning Republicans; they’ve been doing this with Ron Paul for twelve, fourteen years now. So when one of his campaign staffers volunteers him as a speaker for the Bernalillo County LP, well . . . . I wasn’t really against Mullins as I was FOR Adam. But then Mullins decided to do that interview with Cassy Fiano and join the smear campaign against Adam. With that decision, Mullins slit his own throat as far as I’m concerned.

I admit that I leapt to supporting Adam on a bit of blind faith on Ken Cavanaugh’s say-so. But whatever fears and reservations that I had were wiped out after talking with Adam on 21 June 2009 at the organizational meeting — I had asked him where he stood on the issue of marijuana. He responded by saying that he approached the issue from the vantage point of self-ownership. BINGO! — Hole in one!


NOTES

  1. After the Cassy Fiano interview, I had put “@mullinsforcongress.com” into my mail filters in Mozilla Thunderbird, and set the filter to delete the relevant traffic without me ever having to see it. I had forgotten to do that with the BCLP email address, and thus . . . PLOP!
  2. I got lost on the way up from Albuquerque, had to call Bill Koehler after arriving in Santa Fe, as Google Maps gave me bad directions.
  3. Reposted at New Mexico Liberty, my personal blog.
