Libertarian Party Tidbits

We get an update from Michael Badnarik over at the Free Market News Network:

However the experience was much like “boot camp” preparing me for “the real thing”. My congressional campaign has already raised $70K nearly a year before the election. I return to Austin on Jan 2nd, and starting Jan 12th we will have “boots on the ground” engaging the constituents in our first “patrol” through the district. Like any military movement, we have a “secret strategy”, and I insist on calling the meeting room our “war room”. I have even requested a map of the district with little model planes and tanks that we can push around to represent volunteer groups. “I love the smell of political debate in the morning!”

$70K is not enough to win, but it is a sizeable amount for a third party candidate in a congressional race. I’ll continue to keep my eyes on this campaign — especially with the redestricting case going to the US Supreme Court.


Radley Balko has the court transcripts from the Cory Maye case on his website. I’m printing and reading them now and y’all can expect my commentary once I’m done.


Politically incorrect holiday humor. Props.


Tim West has started an LP television commerical. The video is almost completed, and it can be viewed here.


Churches are libertarian institutions.


This is sure to make Barry Hess happy: Libertarian voter registration rises as R’s and D’s drop

    Come on man… hurry up… that’s it I want a refund for that hooked on phonic kit I sent you… ;-)

  2. LOL.

    They are still printing, actually. There is a LOT of stuff there. I’m already finding interesting nuances in the first motions to suppress – I’m sure the final phases of the trial will have lots of interested detail.
