Libertarian Party Presidential candidate Bob Barr will appear at an event at 7:00 PM this Saturday, July 19, at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. There is no charge to attend. This is a great opportunity for you to hear Mr. Barr and get a personal impression.

I hope to see you there!

    Bob Barr was great. He doesn't deliver the radical message Ron Paul delivers but he's thoughtful and articulate, and I think he would blow McCain and Obama away in a debate.

    Informative and exciting to get one on one time with a presidential candidate. At the same time it was sad that out of a metro area of better than 1 million people around 60 people showed up.

    It was a great opportunity for me to see Bob Barr and understand his views. Though, since it did go into a Q&A format (which I preferred) it would have been nice if there were more chairs.

    If you weren't there, you missed a great opportunity to hear Bob Barr's answers to some tough questions.

    What a delight. Mr. Barr was very generous with his time. He presented his program very professionally, answered numerous questions, and hung around for all the photos and personal asides we wanted. I am proud of him as our candidate for president.

    It seemed like exactly what it was, an ex Republican trying to persuade Libertarians he really had a change of heart. It wasn't bad.

    I enjoyed it very much. There were some questions I wish I'd had the guts to ask but overall I liked hearing what the congressman had to say. But then again, I think we all like hearing what longtime politicians have to say, especially when speaking to their "base".

    My main question for Rep. Barr is what took him so long to extricate himself from the Republican Party when he saw how far they've drifted from their basic principles?

    Secondly, what has happened to his political conncections that have allowed him to be in congress for so long now that he's made the switch to the Libertarian Party?
