    They seem quite libertarian to me, albeit without taking a hardline ideological approach. Which parts of their platform do you strongly object to?

    Is that portrait supposed to make Soloski look like a buffoonish amateur? If so, mission accomplished.

    I never considered myself political anything but an Independent looking for collaboration opportunities to solve problems. The Keystone Party was formed by people from various points of view. I personally don’t subscribe to a political philosophy.

    Yes, I read their positions and ideas on their website. They’re not remotely Libertarian.

    While several of us were members of the Libertarian party, the Keystone Party has taken a more moderate, reasoned stance. We consider ourselves a group of united independents first and foremost. I highly recommend checking out our Facebook page or website for a great breakdown of what we’re fighting for.

    The Keystone party was NOT only formed by non-Mises Libertarians. We are a coalition of independents concerned with solving real world issues rather than debating philosophy. We are not Libertarian offshoots, we are not LP2.0. We are our own thing.

    It was formed by the non-Mises Libertarians when the Mises group took over the Pennsylvania Libertarian Party.
