Jordan Page Coming to Vancouver

Posted: December 8, 2013 in Uncategorized

I wrote last year about an episode during the week of the 2012 Republican National Convention when libertarian economics professor Walter Block made an unfortunate decision to unveil his theory regarding ‘evicting’ babies from the womb at a Ron Paul rally, only to be met with a chorus of boos. After Block was yanked from the stage, musician Jordan Page provided one of the more memorable moments of my week in Tampa. He approached the microphone, held out his arms and said very simply, “Before we get started….I’d just like to say that evicting babies from their mothers’ wombs is not something we are advocating here today.” He then asked everyone in the crowd of 11,000 to say hi into his cell phone for the benefit of his wife and four children who couldn’t be there. In one simple gesture, he made it very clear that the Liberty movement was both pro-family and pro-life. He also won me as a fan that day.

 

 

Jordan will be performing at a Republican Liberty Caucus gathering in Vancouver on the evening of Sunday, December 15th, the last stop in his tour of the Northwest. I spoke to Katja Delavar, the Clark County RLC chairwoman, and she is making a special effort to find a family-friendly venue so that kids will be able to attend as well. Page is well known for lingering after his set is done to meet and talk to people, and I found him to be a very engaging and sincere fellow in my brief conversation with him at the P.A.U.L. fest last year. He is a great representative of the people-centered, grass-roots orientation of the Liberty movement, with song lyrics that are both thought-provoking and inspiring. I encourage you to come and listen.
