Roque De La Fuente considering Libertarian Nod

Roque De La Fuente, a buisnessman previously known for running for President in 2016 as a Democrat then later under his own political party, the American Delta Party. Also receiveing the nomination of the Reform Party. Is reportedly considering a run with the Libertarian Party.

While De La Fuente is currently running for the Republican Nomination, Libertarian Party Chairman Nicholas Sarwark has called on De La Fuente to seek the Libertarian Party’s nomination, in an already crowded field of 14+ candidates.

De La Fuente responded to the offer by stating: “If there is an opportunity to re-build the idea of the American Dream and create fair access to the ballot; it seems like it could be a win-win for everyone.”

    Harold E. Stassen — a one-time “Boy Wonder” of American politics— never fell from grace. He simply stopped winning elections after being re-elected to a third-term as governor of Minnesota at the age of 35. In politics, the phrase “fall from grace” usually refers to someone who was involved in a scandal or other behavior that tarnished his or her reputation. That was never the case with Stassen.

    Words matter.

    Also, while it’s true that Rocky briefly considered seeking the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination, he has since wisely decided against it.

    “To fall from grace is an idiom referring to a loss of status, respect, or prestige.”

    I was going from the angle of him losing the status of being a major presidential candidate

    Damn. Rocky De La Fuente’s electoral history makes even Lincoln Chafee appear not-so-desperate.

    I believe Rocky NOT seeking the Libertarian nomination is almost certainly for the best. He just loves a good fight to knock down barriers to ballot access and the Libertarians seem to have that matter fairly well in hand. I believe it is time the Libertarians nominate a libertarian and wish Rocky well in his important mission to make our electoral system more fair for everyone. I may even be able to dust off a 1964 political button from my collection and wear it! I’m sure Darcy is familiar with the one I have in mind.

    There’s no comparison between Fuente and Chafee. The latter is a former Governor and Senator, the two traditional entry-level jobs for a POTUS wannabe. Not only has the former never been elected to anything; he hasn’t even managed to beat the Libertarian candidate’s vote totals in an election.

    FM: “The 2020 Democratic De La Fuente is his son Rocky III.”

    “Eye of the Tiger” had better be his campaign song.
