Mises Caucus Floor Strategy

To its great credit, the Mises Caucus has shown up at the national convention with a detailed floor plan, what they plan to do on the convention floor.  It includes discussions of parliamentary action, how to handle various odd outcomes, and eliminating the abortion plank.  However, it is 70 pages long and well done, so one might wonder who actually generated it.

    You have an unhealthy obsession with slamming Mises.

    I don’t see Andy on the endorsed LNC candidate list. I thought he said they just left him off by mistake in 2020. Looks like they did it again.

    They should be the Moses Caucus. After decades of wandering in the wilderness they are laying down the law and leading the party to the promised land, where they will unleash ruthless and total genocide on the Canaanite savages and take possession of all they do not destroy.

    Don’t read the post as slamming Mises, it’s more congratulating them on being well-organized, which is more than half the battle when it comes to politics: ideology and principles are great and all but if you’re not organized good luck trying to accomplish anything in life.

    I just wish this great organization would be used to avenues beyond internal Libertarian Party politics.

    I’ll give the floor plan an extensive read later once dust settles. Pick on certain words and see who else uses them. Although the “Discord Team” section on page 1 is how the Republicans at the 2016 National Convention in the Rules Committee did things. They had everyone write down their phone numbers into a list and a person would text yea or nay to the committee members based on what rule was being revised.

    Y’all should have passed the NOLA Accord when you had the chance …. We had them on the defense and in retreat. How respectable will the LP look when paleo trash is its public face?

    You have only yourselves to blame for the consequences of “pragmatic” fence sitting.

    Ricky, I said something positive about Mises. George

    Accords are a waste of time and don’t solve anything.

    From the token votes, it appears likely that the Mises Caucus will sweep the elections for LNC office except among the regional representatives.

    For chair, debate tokens: McCardle led Dasbach 544-101 among debate tokens.
    For vice chair, debate tokens: Smith led Raudsep and Hauptmann 350-214-87

    Why won’t they sweep the regionals too? Are they regionally concentrated or spread out?

  10. George Phillies George Phillies May 27, 2022

    Hmmmm: At least one region has I gather been organized out of the anti-Mises states. It may have two representatives.

    I know a state in Region 6 dropped out of Region 6 at least more than a week ago which sent Region 6 below the 10% threshold.

    Corrupt and fake libertarian Rich Luchini is trying to move states around like chess pieces.

    I told Jeff Douglas from the Mises Caucus that I was running last June, and I posted it in a couple of groups. Unbeknownst to me, Jeff dropped out of politics for about 8-9 months due to personal issues, and he never told Michael Heise I was running, so Heise got other candidates, and after he found out I was running he did not want to tell those candidates he recruited to drop out of the race.

    It was a miscommunication issue. No hard feelings.

    Are you referring to Chris Luchini the LPNM chair?

    Andy (or if Andy is to be believed, Heisse) had the exact same excuse for why the caucus did not endorse Andy for LNC in 2020. Will we go for a threepeat in 2024?

    The Mises PAC had a plan.

    The Mises PAC worked that plan.

    That plan substantially worked, for meanings of “work” equating to “achieving stated desired outcomes.”
