Thank you for your response. You say the LNCC's primary purpose is training and electing candidates. But the same faction running the LNCC -- which you yourself side with most of the time -- typically says that electing candidates should be the *Libertarian Party's* main purpose as well. So I fail to see how that "primary purpose" of the LNCC is going to distinguish it from the LNC in the minds of folks like Root and Starr.
I also note that another LNC member just told me the "sole" purpose of the LNCC was something entirely different (raising money)! I think I'd like to get it from the horse's mouth by reading the document authorizing the LNCC and setting forth its purpose and operations. Would you or someone else on the committee please send me that document?
Furthermore, if the LNCC's website is designed to *recruit candidates*, it should be aimed at people who are *already* libertarians, not at the general public! Before pushing somebody to run for office, shouldn't we *first* introduce him or her to the ideas and to the party, and find out whether or not they're really with us? Oh, but I guess that would be contrary to Wayne's philosophy that the only thing which matters is winning!
Neither Mark Hinkle nor any past LP chairs that I'm aware of have had such extensive, blatantly self-promoting material on our party's websites. Somehow, the Libertarian Party has managed in the past to convince people that getting involved with us wouldn't be a waste of their time or money, without pushing glowing essays touting our chair's credentials and accomplishments at them. And avoiding that sort of thing is a *very good idea*, imho. As the saying goes, when they start putting pictures of *living* politicians on the money, it's time to run for the hills!
Love & Liberty,
