William Sparkman via LP Radicals facebook:
Finally, getting things squared away so I can hit the road. On Jan. 18, Myself (William Sparkman), Thomas Hill and Paulie will be hitting the road for at least two weeks. We would like to get together with radicals along the way to discuss re-radicalizing the party, and promoting our pure principles. No more pandering to the duopoly. If you reside in El Paso, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles county, up the 5, around the Bay Area, up the 101 all the way into northern Oregon,around Portland (or want to meet us along the route), please post here. Will be figuring our itinerary accordingly.
The intent, is to hit all 50 states, between now and Columbus.
Responding so far: Jill and Alan Pyeatt and Jason Gonella from the the LA area, Wes Wagner and Mark Vetanen from Oregon, and Joe Buchman of Utah, who may meet us in Las Vegas.
Thomas Hill worked on Lee Wrights’ campaign for the presidential nomination; according to Chris Spangle “William Sparkman, bought convention packages, travel expenses, hotel rooms and food for 34 Texan delegates” at the 2012 LP National convention, likely changing the outcomes of the LNC officer and At Large elections.
Sparkman and Wrights, who is currently Vice Chair of the LNC, currently live near Austin, Texas, as does current LNC Chair Geoff Neale. Hill and Wrights both previously lived in North Carolina. I’m currently the LNC Alternate for Region 7 (Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama) and created the LP Radicals facebook group.
Jill Pyeatt is a contributor to IPR, and Joe Buchman used to be. The other people mentioned who will be meeting us are all regular or semi-regular IPR commenters.
