From a release by the Bill Still campaign:
Good evening from Washington, I’m Still reporting on the Libertarian Party Presidential race.
In the Preamble to the Libertarian Party Platform of 2010, the second sentence contains a very interesting concept – a truly unique concept in all of American politics:
“We believe that … force and fraud must be banished from human relationships.”
But this year, most of the LP leadership has essentially disavowed this noble concept in favor of a new one: “anything goes to get a few more votes; even the use of force and fraud??? No problem.”
Now before I go on, I’m going to say this may be the last time I talk about this. Watch it, do your own research, believe it or ignore it. I’m tired of having to go negative on Gov. Johnson, but as I’ve said before, his candidacy represents a takeover of the Libertarian Party — not only by the Republican Party — but the most nasty, pro-Federal Reserve wing of the Republican Party.
That’s the only thing that can possibly explain the mindless two-pronged Johnson economic policy:
So who is behind this takeover of the LP?
This guy, Andrew Miller — the one in the pink shirt – is sitting with Gov. Johnson at breakfast a couple of weeks ago in Georgia. He and a gorgeous black-haired Australian woman have been in the Johnson entourage until they disappeared at the California convention. They had been with Gov. Johnson since the first convention he showed up at in Manhattan.
However, what I found out in California was that Miller and the beautiful Australian actually work for this man, Roger Stone, probably the dirtiest of the American political consultants.
Stone is known as Richard Nixon’s dirty trickster. I was told that Stone even has a tattoo of Nixon on his back. I didn’t really believe that until I Googled his name and this picture came up.
Stone calls himself “a GOP Hitman”. Hitman??? Is that what we really want the LP to be all about? Really? Like the mafia in charge of the LP?
A famous Stone quote when he was working for Nixon was “By night I’m trafficking in the black arts.”
Time magazine claimed that it was Stone who was behind the controversial Willie Horton ads when he was working for George HW Bush in 1988.
In late February – less than a month ago — Stone suddenly announced – after spending 40 years at the top levels of the Republican party — that we was changing over to the LP.
Here is another Stone quote: “Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.”
How can any Libertarian not understand the danger. This is a guy who has made his living for at least 40 years by the initiation of force and fraud on the American body politic?
At the Michigan convention a couple of weeks ago, I called on Gov. Johnson to denounce Stone and deny any affiliation with him, and to fire him.
I also called on my fellow Presidential candidates to denounce Stone’s role in LP politics. To date, not a one of them has joined me.
I’m Still reporting from Washington. Good evening.
