    G.E. – I’m pretty sure that Mrs. Root is responsible for their daughter’s education.

    Vouchers as a fix for public schools is even less libertarian than the evil. I, who have chosen consciously to not procreate, would in effect be subsidising the education of other people’s children, not as a supposed contribution to a greater good for society as a whole, and often taught by religioous fanatics, whose faith I find to be personally reprehensible.

  59. G.E.

    Let me say this for Root, though: He does seem like a good family man.

    pdsa – I agree with you. But you’re worried about subsidizing religious “education”? What you’re subsidizing now is just as bad. It teaches the cult of the omnipotent state. The religious issue is moot. The real issue is that ALL schools will become public schools if Root gets his way. And the state will have to exert more control over homeschooling, too.

    If what Root said were true, it wouldn’t be “racist.” However, Obama is clearly not “dumb” in a conventional sense. (He’s too dumb to understand the Austrian theory of the business cycle, but not to do well as Harvard). Why would Root pretend that he is? Is it inconceivable to him that there could be a conventionally smart black man?

    Seems to me that any serious candidate for the libertarian presidential nomination should show up with a plan for getting on the ballot.

    Paulie: “Root says he is a radical now.”

    Root is lying/spinning, again.

    Just a few days ago, he told Eric Dondero (it was posted on IPR just days ago), that his 520,000 votes is “impossible for the Radicals to spin negatively.”

    Implying that he wasn’t a radical.

    Now he is? This is standard Root, trying to tell every audience what he thinks they want to here.

    “Actually they need to hold onto the names until the debt is paid and it’s a common practice. Many campaigns pay off their debts by renting their lists. I’m already getting DNC, Obama and other liberal requests for donations under name I donated to Hillary under because she’s renting her list to pay off her debts.

    If they were to turn it over to the Party before the debt is paid, it would devalue the list and make them unable to pay overdue invoices, which hurts vendors and the employees who work for them.”

    “The Mission of the LP is to move public policy in a libertarian direction by building a network of pro-freedom activists who can debate.”

    Starr calls it vague.

    Is vagueness a problem? The old Platform was criticized for being too specific?

    Do reformers want a specific Mission Statement, but a vague Platform?

  221. Michael Seebeck

    Whew! That was a long one! I look back and I ask, “Did I really type all of that?”

    First, some proper accolades:

    To Paulie, for stealing my tweets with my blessing and putting them here in something resembling order. You are as much responsible for making this breakthrough as I am.

    To Knapp, for suggesting Twitter to do this in the first place right after Denver. That started it.

    To The Keaton, for blazing the trail that I just made a little wider and smoother this weekend, and for making this needed breakthrough a necessity in some ways. Don’t give up the fight, but take some time off–you need it.

    To all the folks on the chatbox at the justin.tv channel for keeping me advised when things went cuckoo: your help and insights on the other end were invaluable to taking concept and improving it, not to mention keeping the feed going as much as it was. And the humor displayed kept us laughing in the slow spots.

    Last, to Lidia, for understanding, patience, love, and snark. 🙂

    OK, enough of this album sleeve stuff! 🙂

  222. Michael Seebeck

    FWIW, I am preparing a post that details the technical side of what I did, so the next one can be even better, and below here I’ll add my thoughts on what happened and some clarifications.

  225. Gary Fincher

    What went on sounds like a bunch of HORSE MANURE. Why is there no accountability for misconduct on the part of HQ Staff? We are sorely in need of a “law and order” LNC, I’m afraid to say.

  226. Gary Fincher

    Why is Rachel Hawkridge speaking out on the blogs, yet refused to speak to me about a very timely and serious subject matter that may have, had it been resolved, saved the LP from dropping 5 states’ ballot access?

    Something very fishy and suspicious is going on here and I sure hope my attorney out in Massachusetts can get to the bottom of it when he commences litigation.

  227. JimDavidson

    @393 Kudos to you and your team, including Todd, Michael. Thanks for your hard work and determination. Your stand for openness and transparency should be an example to us all.
