Independent Political Report will interview Libertarian presidential candidate Darryl W. Perry


Darryl W. Perry is a candidate for the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination.

The following announcement was posted on the Independent Political Report website on February 16th, 2016:

Darryl Perry has agreed to be interviewed about his Presidential campaign. Can I have suggestions for questions for him?

To my knowledge, Darryl was the first person to commit to running for the Presidential nomination for the Libertarian Party for 2016. He has been posting opinion pieces on his blog Freedom Press Publications for years.

IPR published an interview with Austin Peterson last week. Caryn Harlos is working on an interview with John McAfee now. Also, Miss Joy Waymire has agreed to be interviewed at the beginning of March.

If any other candidates are interested in being interviewed, please let one of us know. Contact info is available in the “About” section.

I will keep this article up until after Caryn has posted her interview with McAfee.

Here is a link to Mr. Perry’s website.

The following questions have been posted so far below the IPR article:

    1) Does your campaign commitment to accept only cryptocurrency and precious metal — no Federal Reserve Notes — extend to the general election as well as the nomination campaign?

    2) If so, do you have a plan to reach large numbers of voters within the financial constraints of that commitment?

    Which people in your campaign operations will you pay on some basis?
    What do you view as a reasonable salary for the person running your campaign operation? Your accountant? Other key person(s)?
    Mindful the FEC filing compliance, bumper sticker and lawn sign distribution, and other activities are, as a practical matter, implausible or impossible without a physical office, where do you plan to have your base of operations?
    Based on recent history, a Libertarian Presidential campaign will raise 1-2 million dollars for the General election. What fraction of that amount do you view to be acceptable to spend on back-office operations?
    What will you do to increase the size and strength of the libertarian party?
    What will you do to recruit, train, and employ your volunteers?

    There’s a perception that you’re a radical candidate who will only appeal to radicals. Do you accept this? If not, how will you combat that perception?

    Why do you button the top button of your shirt but then don’t wear a tie? Are you cold but still want a casual look?

    I have had the pleasure to meet Darryl twice, and he seems like an honest standup guy to me.

    Why does an anarchist, who seeks to abolish the federal government, seek to become president swearing to uphold law, defining a federal government, thus swearing to uphold that government.

    It seems that the oath of office and the office sought is contrary to the political perspective, and inherently incompatible. What am I missing? I may just be a protest run, with no intent to actually WIN.

    I dont know.

    “Why do you button the top button of your shirt but then don’t wear a tie?” – Shane

    I guess you don’t watch “Elementary” starring Johnny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes.

    Question: If you fail to win the presidential nomination, will you run for the vice presidential nomination at the LP convention?

    Question II: Do you feel comfortable with sharing how much money you’ve raised for your campaign, and do you feel that not accepting Federal Reserve Notes is greatly limiting the amount of funds you could potentially raise?

    Question III: What LP events/debates have you committed to attend before the May convention?

    Question IV: Do you have any campaign staff besides yourself?

    By the way, I interviewed Darryl W. Perry for IPR back in March 2013. The interview was titled “Interview With Darryl W. Perry, First Announced Candidate for 2016 LP Presidential Nomination,” as I believe at the time Perry was the first announced LP presidential candidate. Read it here:


One response to “Independent Political Report will interview Libertarian presidential candidate Darryl W. Perry

  1. Do you agree with the wisdom: “Get the US out of the UN, and get the UN out of the US. Otherwise, all individual liberty will be lost.”?

    What percentage of the politicians who are destroying liberty (Obama, Clinton, etc. and all the US Senators and Representatives who score under 35% on The Freedom Index) are actually evil people who want a one-world communist government, and what percentage of them are just plain stupid or self-interested?

    Do you believe that anyone who supports “affirmative action” is by definition a racist?

    Do you agree that rights belong only to individuals, not to groups?
