|Birth:||Nov 5, 1976 |
David Cox was a Libertarian Party historian and social media volunteer who created the George Quillies and Day 1/Day 4 of the Convention Meme.
Cox first learned about The Libertarian Party from Harry Browne's 2000 presidential campaign interview with The Don and Mike Show, airing on July 12th, 2000 on radio station WJFK in Washington, DC. He looked up The Libertarian Party's platform and began to follow party news, but did not become involved until 2012.
He was involved with the "Twitter bombing" effort during the 2012 Gary Johnson for President campaign, creating lists of sample tweets for the participants, producing graphics and event pages, and instructing activists on how to open Twitter accounts and post to them. In conjunction with a letter writing campaign led by Iowa Libertarian Rick Stewart, select Twitter bombs would target the Commission on Presidential Debates and its corporate sponsors for their exclusion of Gary Johnson from the debates.
From 2018, David Cox had been conducting an ongoing research project into the Libertarian Party of New York of the mid-1990s. He interviewed past and present Libertarian Party members such as Bob Schulz, Joseph Brennan, Jeff Russell, Bob Goodman, Tamara Clark and Perry Willis.
As of April 2022, he no longer wants to be associated with the Libertarian Party or LPedia.
