A Call for Unity

I was as disappointed as anybody about the election results at the LP national convention.  However, after thinking it through,  we must support the Barr/Root ticket.  I can sum up the reason in two words:

Ballot Access

If you’re like me and live in a state where it is very difficult to get the Libertarian Party and its candidates on ballots, you know what I am talking about.  Too much time and money is wasted getting signatures just so we can get candidates on the ballot.  That leaves fewer resources for the candidates themselves.

Fortunately for us, we are not the only party experiencing internal strife.  We are also fortunate that there is a record number of people disenfranchised with BOTH parties.  This is our chance to make something happen.

  1. Bob Barr has a proven track record as a fascist, and the only Libertarian thing he has ever done is just talk. Actions speak louder than words, and once a fascist, always a fascist. I can’t believe you nominated him to represent the LP. A sad, sad day for the LP.

  2. I am as upset as you are and I agree it’s a sad day for the LP. The radical base is still strong and I believe that the tide will soon change in our favor.
