Thomas Sipos at Libertarian Peacenik blog:

People are urging Ron Paul to run once again, in 2012:

I can’t think of a better candidate.

If Paul runs, it will probably be for the Republican Party nomination. If he loses (as he probably will), he can then run on either the Libertarian Party or Constitution Party, if he wants.… Read more ...

Libertarian Peacenik blog on Mark Hinkle, Wayne Root and the question of Libertarian Outreach to Muslims, Christian and Jews

This topic was previously discussed in the comments at LNC In Action, but not yet in an IPR post itself. Although this is always true, since this is a contentious topic, I would like to remind our readers that all opinions expressed are those of the author, in this case Thomas Sipos, not editorial statements by myself (paulie) or Independent Political Report.Read more ...

Libertarian Peacenik: ‘Can Libertarians Be “A Little Bit Pregnant”?’

Thomas Sipos at Libertarian Peacenik:

The Libertarian Party’s “Vote Getter” faction (for lack of a better term) has long advised that the LP “is a political party” and so we must be wary of “scaring voters” with “purist rhetoric.”

Consider Wayne Allyn Root, who says that the LP should steer clear of non-economic issues.… Read more ...
