    The LP needs more people like this. I consider myself a left-libertarian, but the party is not welcoming of my type. The LP is gravitating further and further to the right, to the point where its candidates are often almost indistinguishable from the CP. I’m an anti-statist whose friends are all Democrats and liberals because we share the same values—they just haven’t figured out that the state is the ultimate tool of oppression.
