Root: ‘Devastating Rebuke for Mainstream Media’

By Wayne Allyn Root, Former Libertarian Vice Presidential Nominee 

Newt Gingrich may have won South Carolina. But this wasn’t a Newt victory, as much as it was a devastating rebuke to the national media. 

Study the poll numbers. Yes, Romney really dropped the ball with the tax return and 15% capital gains issues, but the numbers started flipping from a Romney landslide to a Newt Gingrich landslide only after the ABC television interview with Newt’s ex-wife.… Read more ...

Timid GOP members may cave to avoid across-the-board cuts

By Wayne Allyn Root – The Washington Times

The congressional supercommittee tasked with cutting the debt is almost out of time. Good. Run out the clock. If its members do not come to an agreement, we’ll be forced to accept automatic across-the-board cuts to spending – including defense spending.… Read more ...

Leftist observer enjoys conservative/libertarian split at CPAC, supports strengthening Libertarian Party

Lubbock Left, a blog hosted but not edited by the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal:

Social conservatives and libertarians don’t get along. Here’s a FOX News opinion piece about the recent CPAC Conference illustrating that point. (To my friends on the right: yes, I occasionally read FOX News, holding my nose the whole time.) Social conservatives can’t stand libertarians wanting a voice within the Republican Party, though they courted libertarians eagerly enough in the 2010 election cycle, mostly through the TEA Party concept.

David Nolan proposes resolution for LNC consideration

As reported by George Phillies in IPR comments, Libertarian Party co-founder David Nolan has proposed the following resolution to be considered at this weekend’s LNC meeting:

Although no particular person or incident is mentioned in the resolution, the speculation has been that it was, like the recently passed Florida LP resolution to boot Wayne Root off the LNC and LNCC, precipitated by statements Mr.… Read more ...

PSL: ‘Election results: right-wing shift or anger at the status quo?’

Brian Becker at PSLweb.org:

Class-wide struggle is brewing

Do the Nov. 2 election results signal a major shift to the right and a resurgence of conservatism among the people? Is that what the capture of 66 House seats by the Republicans indicates?
