Dan Behrman: This is Insane!

Dan “Taxation is Theft” Behrman was a candidate for the Libertarian Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  He is now running for the Libertarian Party’s 2022 nomination for Governor of Texas.  He sent out the following press release today. 

I can’t believe what is going on in America’s cities. Absolute chaos, and not the good kind.

If you’ve known me for long enough, you know that police accountability is one of my hot button issues. I stared AccountableAuthority many years back as a way to track complaints against police officers. Departments were openly refusing to accept complaints across the country and, and even if they did, most of the information was kept a secret from the public.

People are killed by police every day in America, but once in a while, there is a special case that becomes a tipping point for people to rise up and fight the power. But what do they want? There isn’t a clear set of demands, but here are some ideas.

You can also sign and share the petition:

I have already announced that I am running for Governor of Texas in 2022. Under my administration, I would make sure that all of these demands are met. Unfortunately, that is a long way out. It’s important that we unify in this message today to make these changes and restore peace to our cities.

In Liberty,

Dan Taxation Is Theft Behrman

    His proposals, and most of what he says, make sense. But reform should not be dependent on rioting. Whatever is rewarded, we will tend to see more of. If rioting is rewarded, we will see more rioting. Libertarians tend to not understand rioters and have no clue into the mindset of thugs. Because thugs are not libertarians, what they want is not something libertarians should offer, nor will libertarian solutions satisfy them.

    It’s not rewarding riots. Riots are just a symptom, and the vast majority of protesters are peaceful. It’s about treating the condition which leads to protests and riots.

    Jeez, did Kevin just say something colossally stupid again? Color me shocked. If people didn’t take the time to read and reply to his comments, I’d have never known.

    Jeez, did Kevin just say something colossally stupid again?

    I have no idea why he is still hanging around the LP. He’s basically become a Fox News republican
