“MISS ME YET?” King George III
It’s Time to Throw Out King Obama

By Wayne Allyn Root, 2008 Libertarian Party Vice Presidential Nominee and Best-Selling Author

Dr. Tom Stevens announces plans to form Personal Freedom Party in New York

In IPR comments on a previous post, Dr. Tom Stevens writes

In light of the continued failure of the LP in New York, the Personal Freedom Party will be giving it a shot in 2014. They just adopted a platform which you can see at:
