PostSubject: Anarcho-Capitalist NEWS: The Self-Destructive Nature of the Libertarian Party   Thu Jan 11, 2018 2:17 am

I first met Larry Sharpe, a prominent New York Libertarian activist, at a pizza place in Des Moines, when I invited him to speak at Drake University on behalf of Young Americans for Liberty.



Larry is charismatic, philosophical, convincing, relatable and so much more as he spoke about the failures of the ďDrug WarĒ to an entire room of mixed political views. I know at least one of my non-libertarian friends left the room with the same views as me.

Unfortunately, not every person in the Libertarian Party is Larry Sharpe.

Donít get me wrong, Iíve been highly critical of the laws, regulations and entities that damage third parties and preserve the American two-party dictatorship. Iíve seen firsthand as Libertarian Party politicians are kept from debate stages across the country for not polling well enough (in polls they arenít included in), and regularly facing challenges from signature requirements, to legal battles, to federal funding for the major parties.

That said, itís time to take responsibility for shooting ourselves in the foot time and time again over remarks and actions that are controversial, utterly stupid, or divisive.

This isnít to say other parties donít do this, but they more or less get away with it because theyíre drained out and there are so many more of them that their remarks donít paint an entire movement.

Hereís just a taste of the poor remarks in the past few years:
