Flashback: Jeff Jarvis on Libertarians

Good quote pulled from a BuzzMachine post about Badnarik’s not-so-good background:

Weblogs are the best thing to happen to the libertarian cause since its beginning. Libby bloggers — and I’m still not sure why there are disproporportional number of them — have done a great job spreading their worldview and making sense of it. They have advanced their cause admirably.

[… Badnarik part snipped …]
I suggest that the libertarian bloggers band together and take over their party, for they are, in fact, their party’s best hope: Hold the first online convention, a national internet primary to pick your next candidate. Run some sane people with libby leanings (Reynolds, Volokh, Gillespie, et al). And continue to have sane discussion of issues from your perspective to add into the national debate. And get rid of the loonies.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.
