Supporter of the State of Israel?

I understand how you feel and it seems reasonable from your
perspective. My concern was that since the website is public, I wished
to correct the mistaken impression it may have given to others viewing
it.

You did give me your endorsement after all, and all you had to do is

withdraw it > discreetly and I would have been happy to remove it.

I don't recall supporting any state govt in the past 25 years (since
I've become an anarcho-libertarian). I'm sorry for any problems this
may have caused you.

Best, Michael

Michael,

Like you, I want to drastically reduce the role of the state in our lives.
And, that's why I am a Libertarian officer and candidate.

That's also why I support Israel, as a beacon of success and freedom
in the Middle East.

You didn't cause me any problems, if anything I've received more
support and good publicity since you posted your note.

I just wish you had said you were withdrawing your endorsement,
since I did explicitly ask you by e-mail if you would give it to me.

Anyway, it's no big deal and I am grateful that you told me so
we could straighten things out.

Yours,

Bruce!

Bruce,

Perhaps the confusion here is that as the libertarian candidate, I
will vote for you and support your candidacy. However, I do not
support all your positions.

I hope this helps clarify the mix-up. I'm sorry if initially I was
unclear about this distinction.

Best, Michael

Michael,

That's great.

Should I put you in on my front page as an endorser of me,
now that I've pulled you from the Israel endorsement page?

Yours,

Bruce
PS How is the Free State project going?
PPS Did you know Philip Heath ended up in jail on a 5150 charge?
        It's really a shame, he was a big Free Stater.

Bruce,

You asked:

This would be fine. Could you put in parenthesis, after my name,
"supports neither the Israeli nor the Palestinian states."

PS How is the Free State project going?

Seems to be going great guns--very encouraging for the freedom
movement.

PPS Did you know Philip Heath ended up in jail on a 5150 charge?

No, I've not heard of him. BTW, a 5150 puts the individual in a mental
hospital, not in jail.

Best, Michael
