Leon H. Wolf: The Most Important Libertarian Party Convention in Years Kicks Off this Weekend in Orlando

By Leon H. Wolf, RedState.com, May 27th, 2016:

We’ve had a lot of stories over the last month or so here at RedState about the Libertarian Party, which should tell you all you really need to know about the humongous opportunity the Libertarian Party has this year to increase their size and influence. We’ve had articles about Gary Johnson and Austin Petersen, but I’ve avoided really taking a firm side in the intra-party squabbles of the LP because I don’t really want to presume to tell the Libertarians how to do their business.

Personally, I just feel like I’m not a member of the Libertarian Party, I don’t really pretend to be and I never have, and I don’t want to carpetbag on their convention because my own party has nominated an unfit orange-faced clown who I can’t support even over Hillary Clinton in the general election. This is the exact sort of hostile takeover the Trumpkins managed on the Republicans, and I won’t participate in it with respect to the Libertarians.

It is clear, however, that the Libertarian Party is the last political party that even pretends to stand for reducing the size and scope of the Federal government anymore. And although I’m not advocating for the Libertarians to pick any particular candidate, I will be watching their convention with interest, because the sort of candidate they select will have a lot to say about whether I can consider finding a more permanent home in the Libertarian Party and whether I will consider throwing them a vote in November instead of just leaving the Presidential ballot blank.
