It should have been obvious to me that using KN@PPSTER as a presidential campaign site wasn’t going to work, even from the start. That became more clear to me when I began planning campaign events and had to think about how attendees at those events would react after I (hopefully) wowed them in person, with professional literature, etc., then sent them here.

So, time to head back into “real campaign site” territory. It’s skeletal — I’ve just started populating it with some relatively recent articles and haven’t buckled down to getting my position paper suite together yet — but it’s there (and thanks to an in-kind contributor, the header image is great!).

Some updates:

– This weekend, I’ll be attending the Missouri Libertarian Party’s state convention and hosting a hospitality suite Saturday evening at the convention hotel. If you’re attending the convention, or just happen to be in the Jefferson City area, drop in for a drink and some conversation!

– OK, folks, you’re finally going to get a book out of me. Working title: Unnecessary Evils: Handbook for a New American Revolution. I’m already writing away at it and expect to publish it next spring.

    Good luck in your campaign, but the earliest edge would have to go to you, because…

    ‘If you think that a line-item veto will only affect “real pork,” or that it won’t quickly become a tool for fuckery, you’re naive.”

    I liked the over-all “angle” of this article…but this line had to be the best description of the result I think I have ever seen…

    But seriously….

    I realize that your site has just gone up, and we are…oh…3 3/4 years from election day….

    But as you post “campaign” type articles, you may want to do something for a pdf link. I realize that campaign materials are a little premature, but it wouldn’t hurt your cause to make “print only” material available to the press and public.

    If you want to run a serious campaign, and you are not coming from an “establishment” background (ie: former congressman, senator, councilman etc…) it couldn’t hurt to put stuff in the hands of LPers as soon as possible. JMO…take it or leave it…

    Until I have made up my mind for ’12, I will promote anyone who is an legitimate (in my opinion) announced candidate, and spread their literature etc…
