A media release from Michigan Libertarian for U.S. Senate Scotty Boman says he’s proud to announce he’s been officially endorsed by “libertarian icon” Mary Ruwart.
“It is a great honor to be endorsed by a person of Dr. Ruwart’s caliber; she is a superb writer, philosopher, and Michigan native,” says Scotty, who was the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Michiganâ€™s successful ballot-access drive in 1994. Dr. Ruwart was supportive of that effort, donating copies of her critically acclaimed and best-selling book, Healing Our World, which were sold and the proceeds used to pay petitioners.
“Mary is unique among high profile libertarians in that she has a capacity to be both uncompromising in her positions and patient with those who disagree,” says Scotty. “This quality has made her a unifying force in the libertarian movement, always sticking to principal, while showing compassion to the less enlightened. Mary Ruwart put the ‘love’ in revolution, before the idea was a catchy logo.”
