    Mine too, Jill. Although I’d be curious to know more about the guy (Steve Kerbil??) from Colorado(??) that I heard Darryl mention in the interview, who he says has similar takes on a lot of the issues.

    There’s not a lot of room for a candidate to be better than Darryl on the issues though, so that leaves stuff like personal attributes and ability/willingness to campaign, and the fact that I hadn’t heard of this other person’s candidacy until Darryl’s mention of him suggests that he may not be mounting a very active effort. Darryl on the other hand does seem to be getting out there, and he’s cranking out the op-ed pieces, both of which speak well of his seriousness and commitment.

    Darryl is an awesome candidate. I was lucky enough to meet him once in Worcester Mass. and he is a genuine guy and a great hardcore Libertarian. His quote “Drugs should be legalized like tomatoes” is brilliant. And although I put Darryl in my Top 3, (Out of about 25 registered L candidates for POTUS so far) I still have to go with Steve Kerbel who is doing the deal, like Darryl, but to a slightly greater degree. I do see Kerbel and Perry linking up at some future date and working together to get a win in Nov. Good luck to all our candidates, we’re lucking to have so many good ones, especially Darryl and Steve. http://www.VoteHerd2016.com

    The Perry effort has a basic problem: The campaign organization that you do not want a staff and will only take donations in cryptocurrencies and metallic coins tends to reduce the effectiveness of the campaign…a lot. It does not matter how bright your lamp is if it is left locked in a closet.

    Agreed with several people here, Darryl is the best candidate ideologically. However, I also agree with Phillies about some of the organizational issues.

    So what does it mean that a presidential candidate gets an interview but the main topic of discussion is another presidential candidate? Could it mean that AP is the frontrunner? Methinks so. #AP4LP2016

  6. Smart Alex

    Austin Petersen is only the frontrunner in his own mind. Just saying it out loud doesn’t make it so.

  7. Stewart Flood

    At this point in the process, candidates should be saying why they are the best choice. It is not always wise in the LP to bash the competition, since our convention process may choose him or her as your running-mate if you win the nomination!

    I don’t believe we have any front runner at this time. I think it is a dead heat, with everyone waiting for a better choice — not necessarily Johnson.

  8. Marc Allan Feldman

    Darryl Perry states during this interview (5:16-5:29)
    “. . . then you have somebody, like the doctor from Ohio, Feldman, who has stated that he supports Israel and he has made comments that basically make it sound like he supports the genocide against the Palestinians . . ”

    My published views: “This civil war is not about hatred and revenge, it is about power and
    control. Rockets and air strikes, walls and checkpoints, segregated settlements and incitement, boycotts, sanctions, and divestment, are not tools for peace, but tools for war. Peace will not come through negotiated borders, but through tolerance, economic cooperation, mutual understanding, and unity.”

    To @AP-

    I listened to the interview to post this piece. Your claim that you were the main topic reminds me of a Carly Simon song. You were discussed in one portion, and in that portion not the main topic except tangentially as a negative example. Candidates critique other candidates. Dr. Feldman was discussed more, and didn’t make this outrageous ego claim.

  10. Wang Tang-Fu

    “Your claim that you were the main topic reminds me of a Carly Simon song. ”

    You are referring to Nobody Does It Better, correct? I just want to make sure.

  11. Smart Alex

    “boycotts, sanctions, and divestment, are not tools for peace”.

    I’m surprised to see someone say this. The BDS movement is an effective, non-violent way for Palestinians and the rest of the world to send a message to Israel it’s time to stop those rockets and air strikes.

  12. georgephillies

    Interesting exchange on Facebook, remarking on an article in salon.com asking why Rand Paul failed, but giving information about a Perry opponent:

    George Phillies Rand Paul is a species of Libertarian, in the sense rhinoceros is a species of hummingbird. Anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage, promises to prosecute vigorously the war on drugs, supports a large military, antiscience (anti-vaccination), says Snowden is a traitor…there is no libertarian here, and real libertarians figured this out a long time ago.

    Even longer ago, libertarians figured out the Koch brothers and their actual agenda, and in 1983 drove them out from the Libertarian Party.

    Austin Wade Petersen No one drove the Koch brothers out of the party. You don’t push them out of anything. They walk. And anyone who did such a stupid, idiotic thing should be shunned by anyone who calls themselves a lover of liberty. Viva la Koch!

    Austin Wade Petersen ^- This message not paid for by Koch.

  13. Marc Allan Feldman

    @Smart Alex,
    ” The BDS movement is an effective, non-violent way for Palestinians and the rest of the world to send a message to Israel it’s time to stop those rockets and air strikes.”

    The BDS movement is not a peace movement. I am surprised that you are surprised to find this out. Even the anti-Zionist Norman Finkelstein recognized this.
    “You know and I know exactly what we are talking about because if we end occupation and
    we bring back 6 million Palestinians and we have equal rights for Arabs and Jews — there is no Israel. That’s what it’s really about. And you think you’re fooling anybody? You think you’re so clever? That people cannot figure that out for themselves? No, they understand the arithmetic perfectly well. Are you going to reach a broad public, that hears the Israeli side “They are going to destroy us!”, no you’re not.
    And frankly, you know what? You shouldn’t. You shouldn’t reach a broad public because you are dishonest. And I wouldn’t trust those people if I had to live in this state. I wouldn’t. It’s dishonesty and I do not want that kind of leadership.” — Norman Finkelstein

    WTF,

    ==Your claim that you were the main topic reminds me of a Carly Simon song.

    LOL, only if you think this post is about you;)

    I see AWP is still doing his classy presidential responses on Facebook, George. smh

    Maybe we can get his social media person to try to tell you how delegations work again and call you a vulgar name…. ‘cause that’s how the #whynot machine rolls. Rachel has her hands full with this one.

    I think perchance George, you might be getting lumped in with us basement dwellers despite being a State Chair. We have cookies.

    Hold on… I was reading all these mundane threads about intra-party gossip and I finally stumbled across something vitally important and time sensitive: where are the cookies?!!

    I’ve been told they are somewhere on your computer. You may know better than me how to find them there. 🙂
