The more I see of Kostric the more I like him.
William Kostric is the peaceful protestor who open-carried a gun to an Obama healthcare event in New Hampshire. Kostric is affiliated with the Free State Project.
Introduction to the Free State Project [ Free State Project - Liberty in Our Lifetime ]
Kostric's sign said "It's time to water the tree of liberty."
To fans of political and economic liberty, this is an obvious reference to the words of Thomas Jefferson, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
Kostric, although obviously not a polished speaker, acquits himself well against Chris Matthews in this eight-minute interview on MSNBC.
Matthews is an aggressive interviewer who makes no bones about his hostile bias toward Kostric.
My favorite segment of the interview so far, from about 3:45 to 4:20, is where Kostric deftly steers a Matthews question into a nice sound bite about the socialistic policies of the Massachusetts state government.
Matthews: I'm talking about people who bring guns to presidential events...
Kostric: I'll tell you this Chris. We just started new history... a peaceful rally... No on one our side was alarmed... the people of New Hampshire are used to seeing firearms... Maybe some of the people they bused in from Massachusetts were alarmed...
Matthews: What is wrong with the people from Massachusetts?
Kostric: They already have their healthcare scheme and their socialism going in their state; they should probably keep it over there.
