I reported yesterday on new ACU President Al Cardenas’s “vetting” process for CPAC, and his statement that support for gay marriage or opposition to DADT are not “within the scope of what we believe the three legs of the stool of the movement are.
I don’t look at voting as a patriotic duty, or as having any intrinsic importance (there isn’t a worthless Fed note’s difference between the major parties). Rather, I look at it as a form of self-expression; whenever possible, you try to give a finger to the incumbent crooks.… Read more ...

In its own words, “the Coffee Party’s long-term focus is to develop, replicate, and sustain an effective method of engagement. We are creating models of participation based on responsible citizenship — a sense of civic duty, patriotism, and a respect for our democratic system of government.

The Libertarian Senate hopeful not only won the straw poll, but defeated Rubio by a landslide.… Read more ...
The Boston Tea Party is having its convention, as IPR previously reported. In the interest of disclosure, two of the at-large candidates (Tom Knapp and Neil Stephenson) also write for IPR.
Here is a press release from party founder Tom Knapp sent to firstname.lastname@example.org on behalf of the party:
Midway into its second biennial convention — held entirely online — America’s new libertarian political party has chosen a new slate of national officers, adopted the program of “the Ron Paul R3VOLution,” and partially completed work on amendments to its bylaws.
The Natural Law Party in Michigan has endorsed Ralph Nader for President. The Taxpayers (Constitution), Green and Libertarian parties are the other ballot qualified parties in the state.
