RE: [lpsf-discuss] Re: Convention Carnage

Thanks Allen,

The Party is and can continue to be a political party for those who find
it useful....what I'm discussing is becoming individually...a
non-political Libertarian activist working outside the growing "Party"
constraints.

I believe Mike Denny is more in line with what LP founder Mr. Nolan
had in mind: activism designed to promote an ideology. However,
since I cannot possibly devine what Mr. Nolan truly had in mind when
he founded a "political party" that was not supposed to behave like a
political party (low priority on candidates, for instance), I have to
assume he intended to provide a loose structure that could function
on several levels: 1) activists (demonstrations, neighborhood
communications, OPH booths), 2) political support (attendance at
local political meetings, initiatives, LTEs, press releases), 3)
participation in the political arena (running for office, introducing
legislation), and 4) Candiates, however isolated and however
esoteric, libertarians could vote for in lieu of voting for a lesser
of two evils. So, I trust we are all Libertarians now?
