Gates Crescent Park -- Buddy Moore, independent candidate for U.S. Senate, showed up in a baseball cap and paint-splattered shorts at the park this morning to help members of We Are Change Colorado set up the site.
The organization, which has a permit for the week, will increase its presence during the week and occupy the picnic tables and parking lot across the interstate from Invesco Field as Barack Obama makes his anticipated acceptance speech Thursday night.
Moore said he was “loosely affiliated” with We Are Change. He supports the 9/11 Truth campaign, which calls for new investigations and raises questions about the 9/11 attacks.
He said he was living in France after 9/11 and saw a very different view of America.
“Our aggression towards Iraq was completely unfounded,” he said.
He has been campaigning for about six months, attending small events and peace rallies.
Moore said a key part of his campaign is to get a citizen’s amendment to the Constitution to ban the import or export of arms in the U.S.
With such a ban, the profit incentive would be taken out of war, he said.
