Via Richard Fast:
The Libertarian Party Radical Caucus has issued grades for the following candidates running for the LP’s nomination for president or vice president. Candidates were graded on a combination of the alignment of their stated positions with the goals and platform of the LPRC, their effectiveness in presenting those positions, and application of libertarian principles in their campaigns.
Candidates for both offices were graded on similar criteria, and are listed together because it is often the case that a candidate for president will end up becoming a candidate for vice president — but candidates thought to be seeking only the vice presidential nomination are noted with “(vp)”.
Arvin Vohra – A
Spike Cohen (vp) – A
Adam Kokesh – B
Dan Behrman – B
Jo Jorgensen – B
John McAfee (vp) – B
John Monds – B
Vermin Supreme – B
Jacob Hornberger – C
Jim Gray – D
Justin Amash – D [ subsequently decided against running -p]
Larry Sharpe (vp) – D
James Ogle – F
Joe Exotic – F
While looking for an image for this article I stumbled across the website posting of this on the caucus page and found the following additional note:
[Note that there are other candidates seeking the Libertarian Party’s nomination than the above. They were not graded due to one or more of the following: a) They did not answer our request for information; b) We were not otherwise aware of their campaign positions; and/or c) They were too far afield from the Radical Caucus’ stated goals that our Board members felt it inappropriate to invest our time in rating them.]
Best wishes to all of the candidates who are working hard to secure the Libertarian Party’s nomination, and for doing their best to persuade more Americans of the necessity of adopting Libertarian solutions for current issues.
Don’t be silent. Educate, persuade, and protest.
