    Yours wasn’t sent to me. I’ll look it up and post it.

    Curious. There were four candidates in the debate. Peralo interviewed four candidates. Four candidate interviews were uploaded on youtube. If you search “Peralo interviews libertarian” all four pop right up. But your story and the single one on Gary Johnson’s interview only makes three. It does not seem to add up. Is this terribly sloppy journalism, or is there another agenda going on?

    It comes from looking at the solution set, versus the interest of various political groups.

    Question, Does GJ even have a plan, or is it all heart warming pander?


    Increases in Individual liberties and freedoms is desired by all libertarians, to various respective extents. All libertarians have different views as to the ultimate end to the extent of maximum liberties. Question posed is HOW to get the ball rolling in a practical way toward that end. Platitudes are nice, the Theories are great, but both are effectively meaningless without a practical plan to start the march toward increasing Liberties and Freedoms. I have been around the nation and have observed the pathetic turn out by libertarians at state conventions. There is only one practical path for the LP to start that movement now toward in any significant increases in liberties and freedoms from totalitarian socialistic fascist DC. Only one, and that option is available to the LP in May, where the delegates will have the option to win the White House, creating a viable competitive libertarian party as a balance to DC totalitarian socialistic fascism by the two pandering political machines, and thereby save the nation from social chaos and economic ruination, if not global depression and global war.

    Libertarians, Awake!

    Absolute Freedoms under total Anarchy and total Sovereignty cant possibly work. Libertarians must not lock in their minds from political pander into an inherently unworkable intolerant failing uncompromising absolute ideology alienating the vast majority of Americans. Minimum Government, Maximum Freedom and Mutual Tolerance collectively imply reasoned objectivity promoting Liberties and Freedoms, that in large measure, appeals to nearly all Americans, rendering the Libertarian Party potentially and inherently a big tent Party. Repeatedly Failed Pandering libertarian messengers, is THE PROBLEM with the Libertarian Party, CAUSING SYMPTOMS, such as a stagnant party, declining membership, limited mainstream media coverage, limited ballot and debate access, low fund raising, repeated election defeats, and crazed fringe image, which all can be cured by the RIGHT MESSENGER, being able to couch that powerful and wonderful freedom Libertarian Party Message into a proper form, to APPEAL to nearly all Americans to WIN NATIONAL ELECTIONS, to render the Libertarian Party a nationally viable and competitive third political party, finally offering Americans a Liberty choice in counter balance with the totalitarian socialistic fascist failed liberal and conservative choices which have enslaved all Americans as tax mules, perpetual debtors and state dependents.

    The issue is not defeating the Democrat and Republican nominees, as the two current leaders are clearly demonstrably suspect. The issue is not saving the US from social chaos and economic ruination and wars, as the solutions, skills and plans are solidly in place. The real issue is, are the libertarians so locked into emotional narrow-spectrum pandering that they can not think logically, or enamored by the last failing candidate, or impressed by current public notoriety, to actually believe that any one of the other presidential candidates has the intellectual capacity, knowledge base, and command leadership, necessary, to go toe-to-toe the Clinton crime family and that infantile bombastic property mogul? After nearly 50 years, the LP remains stagnant as a political curiosity, pushing hard core anarchy, sovereignty and drug war end, the collective dead end political road, proved time and again. The turn out at the state conventions are embarrassing low, eg PA with 13m population, yet only 50 show up, and that poor turn out has been across the country without exception. The other LP candidates do not know how to present the LP message to appeal to 90% of the voters and do not know how to fashion and execute a comprehensive solution set that would attract 90% of the voters. The LP FL delegates should not perpetuate the LP national tradition of failure. The drug war end can be presented as a war on DC totalitarianism, and sovereignty presented as fitting within federalism, so at to attract, not alienate, 90% of the voters. Other candidates have disjointed collections of proposed band aids, and not an integrated comprehensive solution set that is necessary to appeal to 90% of the voters, and to solve many major systemic problems facing the nation. The LP FL delegates should nominate the only candidate who can and would win the White House through message appeal, solution attraction, execution skill set, and knowledge base to defeat the DEM/REP nominees. The LP message of minimum government, maximum freedom, mutual tolerance, as well as drug war end and sovereignty can be presented to appeal to 90% of the voters, along with a comprehensive solution set to attract 90% of the voters, by one with the skill set necessary, to win the White House, only as positioned by yours truly.

    Derrick Michael Reid can present that wonderful and powerful Libertarian Party message of 1) Minimum Government, 2) Maximum Freedom, and 3) Mutual Tolerance, in a form that will APPEAL to 95% of Americans, and offers a solution set and skills to solve major systemic problems facing the country, that will ATTRACT 95% of Americans, for the November national election victory, for providing increased liberties and freedoms for all and solutions to those big national problems.


    I) Win White House;
    II) Cement viable 3rd party based upon and for increasing liberties and freedoms.
    III) Save US from Social Chaos and Economic Ruination.
    IV) Sweep all 50 states in the national general election.

    I) Appeal to all political Parties with an administration of Libertarians, Democrats, Republicans, Greens, & Independents.
    II) Transform “War on Drugs End” into “War on DC Totalitarianism” for broad message appeal.
    III) Transform “Sovereignty” into Federal Natural Rights and States Natural Rights for broad message appeal.
    IV) Devise Presidential Platform and Pledge for broad message appeal.

    I) Devise comprehensive integrated Solution Set to solve systemic problems to prevent Social Chaos and Economic Ruination.
    II) Map Solution set onto major political groups so at to ATTRACT all major political groups, 1) Occupiers, 2) Tea Partiers, 3) Latinos, 4) Monetarists-Marketeers, 5) Peace Pacifists-Sovereigns, 6) Liberals-Socialists-Seniors, 7) Conservatives-Christians-Parents, 8) Feminists-LGBTs, 9) Minorities-Poor, 10) Riflemen-Patriots, 11) Constitutionalists-Anarchists, 12) Greens-Students.
    III) National Campaign Front Line comprises 12 Libertarian Party Working Groups to appeal to these 12 respective political groups by social media explaining why solution set satisfies their core values and objectives.
    IV) National Campaign Double Envelopment by Libertarian Party Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees is to trap, debase, discredit, and DEFEAT Democrat and Republican nominees in their meaningless pander, immense national failures, embedded systemic corruption and ineffective plans.

    That is an articulated plan. Only candidate with an actual plan to win.

    Very Truly Yours, in Liberty and Freedom,

    I wonder where Mr. Reid came up with the figure that 90 % of Americans will go along with his plans, if he becomes our candidate?

  5. Jed Ziggler Jed Ziggler Post author | March 23, 2016

    Mr. Reid is far more eloquent here than he was during the debate.
