I have managed engineering teams, legal teams, financial teams, and military teams, successfully, and never had a secretary. I have designed magnetic disk drives by myself, and saved the F16 navigation program, for examples, negotiated 100m$ in financial assets, was undefeated in a decade of federal court litigation, was the nations best patent prosecutor for 15 years, and have commanded hundreds in military campaigns and battle as supreme commander, operations planner and chief of staff. The political strategic and tactical plans for defeating the Democrats and Republicans will amaze all Libertarians, as we sweep all 50 states in November. NOW IS THE TIME FOR THE LP TO STEP UP, AND TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE!
Liberties are personal actions protected by governmental laws.
Freedoms are personal actions not prohibited by governmental laws.
The US Constitution set forth liberties and confined government laws for maximum freedom.
The Libertarian Party seek minimum government, meaning minimal laws confining freedoms, and seeks maximum liberties.
In so doing, the Libertarian Party seeks maximum liberties and freedoms from government, an object of the Constitution.
Tolerance and respect are achieved when the constitutional objectives are respected and upheld.
The Democrat and Republican parties lay more and more mandates upon the people, restricting liberties and freedoms.
The Democrat and Republican parties seek by their action totalitarian socialistic fascist control over the people.
The Libertarian party seeks Constitutional liberties and freedom from government.Democrat liberal totalitarian socialistic fascism, Republican conservative totalitarian socialistic fascism, and Libertarian reactionary personal freedoms and liberties, are the three choices offered to the people. The Libertarian Party is indispensable to the nation to oppose the DEM/REP concentration of power in DC and the commitment enslavement of all as tax mules, perpetual debtors and state dependents, for increased liberties, freedoms, with personal tolerance, respect, and responsibilities.
The issue is not defeating the Democrat and Republican nominees. That is the easy part. The issue is not saving the US from social chaos and economic ruination and wars, as the skills and plans are solidly in place. The real issue is, are the libertarians so diluted by emotional narrow-spectrum ideological pandering that they can not think logically and actually believe that any one of the other presidential candidates has the superior intellectual capacity, vast knowledge base, and command leadership to take down the Clinton crime family and that infantile bombastic property mogul?
Libertarian Party Nominee
A tradition in American politics of political parties is that, the last presidential nominee, who lost the last election, does not run again, for many good reasons. Recent examples are GORE, MCCAIN, KERRY and ROMNEY. Recent past nominees enjoy party notoriety and member affections, but must not doom the party to stagnation and repeated failures. Political parties must evolve and necessarily over time present new approaches, emphasis and ideas, so that losing campaign approaches, failing electioneering rhetoric, and narrow ideas are set aside, opening up the party, for reinvigorating and revitalizing the political party with renewed opportunities for capturing the presidency, the ultimate goal of any political party. In so doing, the party can attract new members and move toward ultimate success.
Of particular interest is the Libertarian Party, where membership has been stagnant and the ideology has been limited to attract the vast majority of the American electorate. Libertarians of the Libertarian party actually comprise a spectrum of liberty and freedom views, from extreme anarchists wanting to abolish all government, to passionate sovereigns wanting expansive natural rights, to liberty moderates wanting increased federal and states liberties and freedoms, and to federalists wanting increased liberties from government, including for examples Tea Partiers against federal oppressive taxes and Occupiers against bankster control over the federal government. When a political party focuses on only one segment of its natural base, it tends to alienate other segments of the base as well as alienating the general electorate as a whole. A successful libertarian party presidential candidate should appeal to all liberty minded segments of the Libertarian Party political base as well as to a super majority of the general electorate.
A narrow focused and last nominee candidate, appealing only to a narrow but passionate segment of the party base, and not appealing to the vast majority of the electorate, is doomed to fail yet again, stagnant the membership of the party in perpetuity, and does the party a great disservice, despite having significant residual good will, admiration, and affections from the entire political base. Such a last nominee, for the good of the party, for increasing party membership, and for actually advancing increased liberties and freedoms across the nation, should not attempt to exploit that good will, admiration, and affections for no actual real good, resulting in continued harm, save only self glorification.
As a liberty moderate and Christian social conservative of the Libertarian Party, seeking actual significant increases in liberties and freedoms from government, I offer the libertarian party renewed hope, with fresh ideas, a concrete plan to sweep the nation for the libertarian party, to propel the libertarian party membership to new highs, to cement the Libertarian party as a perennial competitive nationwide political party, offering the general electorate a real third choice in the voting booth, with a specific articulate plan to solve the many major systemic problems facing the US, so as to save the country from social chaos and economic ruination. In this election year of 2016, with kind due respect, admiration, and sincere affections, I call upon Gary Johnson, to withdraw.
From Politics and Portal Web Page: "There were audible sighs of resignation from a significant number of libertarians following Gary Johnson's underwhelming third-place finish in the 2012 presidential election. For so long, the prevailing argument was that the party needed a high-profile and nationally recognized presidential candidate to elevate the brand and ideology into mainstream American politics, and capture the attention of the public. And in Gary Johnson, many believed that they had found such a nominee. After all, his record as Governor of New Mexico can withstand the toughest scrutiny, and his campaign is without doubt the most organized, expansive and well-funded in the Libertarian Party history - all this without factoring the effect of the ostensibly disenfranchised Ron Paul Republicans. So, perhaps his not quite 1% share of the total popular vote could be viewed as a disappointment.
On the other hand, however, an even larger majority believes that the Libertarian Party is on the cusps of breaking through the two-party hegemony. The flourishing grassroots movement, comprising primarily of the younger demographic, along with the emergence of a blossoming national-level election machinery, will accord future libertarian candidates with some sorely needed organizational support, and perhaps, eliminate the perennial issue of ballot access.
The key now is to maintain the momentum, and leverage the inroads made in 2012 for the 2016 presidential election. And thus, the search now commences for the individual to take the party to the next level; a presidential candidate that will bear the huge responsibility of capturing the imagination of the American public, and achieve something that has never been done since 1912 - building a nationally competitive third party."
In effect, most American want more liberty and freedom, innately, suitable for winning the White House by the Libertarian Party and actually deliver increases in liberties and freedoms. A narrow vision of "liberty" placing with a BIG L does not appeal to the overwhelming percentage over voters having a LITTLE L. All liberty minded voters, nearly all, should be welcome into the Libertarian Party with tolerance, forming a big tent party. The Johnson Dilemma
