I have been voting for Libertarian Party candidates since 1996. I joined the LP soon after. I was employed by the U.S. Postal Service when I watched Harry Browne’s speech on C-Span.
The Libertarian Party is the “Party of Principle.” It unfortunately has problems getting votes on Election Day. The question often comes up whether we want to nominate a principled candidate with no name recognition or somebody who is well known but strays away from major libertarian tenets.
I choose the former. While it would be nice to have somebody with name recognition represent the party, people would be inclined to get the wrong impression about the Libertarian Party and what true libertarianism stands for.
I urge the delegates to vote for a candidate with strong Libertarian principles.
