Dan Behrman: This Campaign Isn’t Over!

Dan “Taxation is Theft” Behrman, who sought the Libertarian Party’s 2020 presidential nomination but lost at the National Convention on Saturday, sent the following message to his email subscribers: 

I want to thank everyone for the good run and especially congratulate Libertarian candidate for President Jo Jorgensen and Vice President Spike Cohen. Sadly, we didn’t get the nomination of the Libertarian Party, but this is not the end for us, and we wish the best of luck to Jo and Spike. In fact, we have already made a $500 donation in their honor to Liberty Sparks Uganda to help Libertarians feed those affected by coronavirus.

It was an amazing run and some of the most supportive people were those I ran against including Arvin Vohra, Adam Kokesh, Vermin Supreme, Kim Ruff, John Phillips Jr., Sam Robb, John Monds, Ken Armstrong, Kenneth Blevins, Jedi Hill and yes, even Judge Jim Gray!

Special thanks to my entire AMAZING team, dedicated volunteers, and my awesome collusion support from around the world!

Special shout-out to my good friend Jamie Balagia who was imprisoned for defending the rights of the accused but not convicted in the drug war, who I will continue to side with even though a lot of the libertarian and cannabis freedom movements turned their back on him.

I’d take a break from this game but I’ve got nowhere else to go, so I’m back to being a thorn in the side of the government, after enjoying the holiday weekend.

I have already announced that I am continuing my campaign for president with the Libertarian Party in 2024, and that campaigning starts now. There are other plans on the table like a run for Governor of Texas in 2022. We will continue to support candidates with our SWAT team which now includes candidates from Australia and Uganda. We have a lot of other plans on the table, so don’t expect us to disappear. This campaign does not end in 2020.

In Liberty,

Dan Taxation Is Theft Behrman

    Wise idea, my friend. It’s more important to unite behind the ticket (and sure, I’m not 100% happy with it, but I’ll suck it up) and just prepare for 2024.

    The LP, this weekend, between the bullshit publicly visible during the third convention day and the back and forth bitching of the morons on the LNC, (particularly Harlos) in the Business Email Archives viewable via the LP’s website I’ve come to the conclusion that the LP is an absolute fucking joke; every person on the LNC is a joke. They have no intent of actually being a legitimate party, it’s just a bunch of cults of personality having a pissing match. I will not vote for anyone running under the LP again, nor a Repub or Dem. I’m just done.

    I was really surprised to learn the internal LNC emails are publicly archived.

    He doesn’t mention Jacob Hornberger. Is there some kind of bad blood there?

    Hornberger is rather testy, so that wouldn’t be surprising if true. A lot of people noted his quickness to go negative in the debates and his history of going negative against Browne in 2000, running as an independent against the LP nominee for Senate in Virginia in 2002, and staying out of the LP between now and then. I think that general attitude is why he wasn’t a lot of people’s second, third or fourth choice, despite having the most votes in the initial rounds. Ultimately that’s why he did not become the nominee.
