    I want to congratulate Richard. And to thank Christine for asking such an able person to serve on that board.

    I expect to see many good things to come from FREE.

    BTW, as far as I know, Richard is not independently wealthy. If you have it to spare, he could use some help with what he does. And virtually everything that has been good for ballot access has happened because of his inspiration and prodding.

    Libertarian Winger and BAN are secular saints and have provided for years what [so called] Third Party Watch and [so called] Independent Political Report have merely attempted: fair and balanced posting of alternative party, activists, and candidates! Patriotism on two feet!
