Libertarian Party founder David Nolan has written a short article connecting several of the recent controversies in the LP. A list of topics covered would spoil the entire piece (hint: check the tags), so here’s the gist in Nolan’s own words:
Clearly, Barr and Viguerie are attempting to gain control of the LP so that Barr can campaign on a conservative/libertarian hybrid platform and Viguerie can extend his fundraising empire into the libertarian quadrant of the political universe. If they succeed, the Libertarian Party will become just one more mouthpiece for malcontent Republicans.
