    MW -The last time LBT was listed was Nov. 2010 with 2,680 registrants. Apparently they don’t include that in the last two listings. We are not ballot qualified but have been listed in the past as a result of a 2003 or 2005 ruling that also included the Greens, who are now ballot qualified.

    Seems like those 29 CP members in Alaska should just work through the Alaskan Independence Party. Even if they couldn’t wrest control of the party away from others, they’d be much closer.

    The IAP is going strong, as always .”

    Yes, and it is still blatantly obvious that most of the registered voters in Nevada who checked the Independent American Party box on their voter registration form did so by mistake as most of them thought that meant that they were registering as independents.

    Utter BS Andy.

    Ever check the percentages of IAP’ers in the rural counties and compare them to the urban areas? Rural voters really like us and aren’t stupid.

    Explain how we do so well in elections too, especially in the 2010 elections and the 4 people we elected.

    We’ve been through this before on this site and I’ll say it again, the Independent American Party of Nevada (like the American Independent Party in California) has an inflated amount of voter registrations due to people mistakenly thinking they are registering as independents. This also translates to an inflated number of votes with people thinking, “Hey, I’m an independent so I’ll vote for this person because it says Independent next to their name on the ballot.”

    I’m not saying this to be mean, I actually think that the Independent American Party of Nevada is a pretty good party. They are certainly better than the average Democrat or Republican. I just know from being on the ground in both California and Nevada that most people have no clue what either party is, and this includes the majority of their registered voters and even many of the people who vote for them. The word “independent” is a buzz word with which many people identify. Most of the “support” is for the word independent and not for the party itself.

    ‘We’ve been through this before on this site and I’ll say it again, the Independent American Party of Nevada (like the American Independent Party in California) has an inflated amount of voter registrations due to people mistakenly thinking they are registering as independents.’

    = Then explain why the IAP has only gotten as big as it has during the past few years? Back in 2000, the IAP was nothing in the voter registration stats. If Nevadans joined for only the party name, then the IAP would’ve already had close to 50,000+ registered voters only a few years after we went on the ballot.

    ‘ This also translates to an inflated number of votes with people thinking, “Hey, I’m an independent so I’ll vote for this person because it says Independent next to their name on the ballot.”’

    = On the Nevada ballot, we’re labeled “Independent American Party”, not “Independent American”, so a Nevada voter would have to be one serious retard to think that he/she is voting ‘independent’ if they vote for us, since we’re clearly discerned as a political party.

    ‘I’m not saying this to be mean, I actually think that the Independent American Party of Nevada is a pretty good party.’

    = We’re not good- we’re the BEST third party in Nevada. Even have gotten a few Libertarians into our ranks as well.

    ‘They are certainly better than the average Democrat or Republican.

    = I’ll concede that that is the case in California- I lived there before and was a member of the AIP, and yes, the majority of voters only joined because of the name, from my experience of actually contacting registered AIP’ers themselves.
    But in Nevada, with the constant activism of the Hansen family and other IAP’ers in politics and even the state legislature, people know who were are and even if they don’t agree with us 100%, they still join for more then just our name. And when I register people to vote up here to the IAP- they know what they’re getting into.
