RE: [lpsf-discuss] LP national platform under attack!

Thanks for the support, Starchild. But you may be somewhat too generous in your reference to "near-sighted preoccupation with electoral success." I suspect that pragmatic justification has some role, but I also suspect, from talking with some Hoosier delegates, that many of them actually disagree with much of the platform. For them, concern with electoral success may be a convenient cover for the chance to throw out the platform and start over and do it right, making it into a true conservative document.
