Re: “Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement

Jack, I'm caught somewhere between "whatever" and congratulating you on playing this off as a non-sequitar. Maybe you might have heard of the Logan Act? It bars public officials from having closed door conversations with public officials from other countries to define policy.
Yes, this year's Bilderberg meeting was right here in Virginia - So what, only about half of Bilderberg attendees are actually American! If you really believe that Bilderberg is a toothless organization not worth being mentioned, then I have to say for the first time "Dude! You are smarter than this!"
Until Bilderberg existed, our candidates were never vetted behind the scenes. Until Bilderberg existed, the platform was decided in the Party Convention Halls, not some media-black out meetings of multi-millionaires and billionaires.
Who cares that Peter Theil and Mark Sanford may support some liberty causes - I also support a green Earth, but that in no way makes me an environmentalist, or a Democrat. Bilderberg is the antithesis of everything this country was founded on and if they were just some Rotory Club meeting, I don't think there would be a big deal. There wouldn't be a big deal if they just opened their meetings and allowed real media coverage. Its the secrecy that is repugnant. Need I quote the entire JFK speech to that end?
You just stood up to be counted Jack with everything the liberty movement has rallied against for years. I hope it was worth whatever political connections it made for you. You just lost all credibility in my eyes. Closed door meetings of our elected representatives have no place in American society. Our very foundations are based on a representative government that serves the people, not the other way around. How dare any group (that is comprised of elected, or soon to be elected officials) think they have the right to that kind of privacy!
So long as they are serving us - These meetings should be held in the light of day and how dare you question our credibility for calling them out on this principle. You should be ashamed of yourself.
