On Thursday, May 5th I sat in on a conference call where the Libertarian Party of Nevada, with recent addition of Wayne Allyn Root, voted to take their functioning counties and dissolve them. Merging them in with the state.
This is the exact opposite of what a state party should be trying to do. I would suggest it is the opposite of liberty. There is no logical reason to believe it is a good idea from a political stand point,or from a party stand point. I can only imagine that those people who are behind this believe it will give them more control. Obviously that is antithetical to freedom.
The bylaws of the Nevada Party state “Members voting to revoke affiliate status must state their reasons in writing.” They seem to have bypassed this, I would argue that they should have to do that for each county. This mass dissolution is a travesty.
No one would speak for the motion, though a few people spoke against, yet the cowards voted for it without defending it.
For the record, they wouldn’t even allow some good faith observers to chime in. Unfortunately for Libertarian Party members in Nevada it seems they would be better off joining the storm trooper party.
If Libertarians across the country do not speak out about this loudly, you will continue to see members of the “43 laws of Power” gang, Rutherford, Root etc, try to rig these types of things across the Country.
“First they came for the Nevada libertarians……”
So Jospeh P. Silvestri – Chair, Wayne Allyn Root (W.A.R.) – Vice Chair, Kris McKinster – Secretary, Michael McAuliffe – Treasurer, Irv Hopkins – At Large, Chris Roberts – Southern Region, shall we be expecting your reasons for disolving these counties in writing soon?
