Today’s Candidate: Dan Belforti

    Thanks for finally picking a respectable looking libertarian candidate. They are out there, if you can resist picking the kooks to misrepresent libertarians.

    Yes, they are out there, but you have to make an effort to find them. And that’s from an LPer.

    You said: “finally picking a respectable libertarian”

    And then you went on to say I was picking kooks to misrepresent the LP.

    So, I presume from your statement that you feel the following candidates are kooks?

    Michael Badnarik

    Bill Pierce

    David Schlosser

    Paul King

    Mark Yannone

    Sue Jeffers

    Dick Clark

    Bill Boone

    Mike Kole

    Bunch of crazy wackos, right?

    BTW, am I only trying to discredit Libertarians or is it all third parties… cause I can also do a list of all the credible Greens, Constitution Party, and independent candidates I’ve mentioned… and those from other parties like the MNIP, Socialist, and Peace and Freedom.

    Dan Belforti impresses me as determined, persistent, and logical. I like his website. I plan to donate to his campaign.

  8. Joey Dauben Says:

    Not only that, but he actually looks the part of a candidate. A serious one.

    And you wanna know how the LP has fared so well in NH? It’s because of guys like that…

    Austin, you should just start publishing the screen names of all of your detractors - the ones who keep on and on and on. Maybe publicity wouldnt hurt? Then again, the new readers to this site would know who you were talking about specifically…

    Thank you Austin and friends for selecting me as your candidate of the day. I was google alerted to this honor!

    I also host a weekly radio show with a libertarian slant called “Left, Right And Correct with Dan Belforti & Friends”. Anyone care to do a quick call in to my show in support of third parties at some point?

    Please visit my radio show web sites http// or for more info.

    Thank you George Whitfield for investing in my campaign, and in the future of this great country. Would anyone else like to volunteer/donate out there?

    Sign up for my free monthly confidential email announcing guests on my show. For example, last Friday interviewed in studio 2008 Presidential Candidate Mike Gravel (D), not your typical politician, and Cato Institute Executive Director David Boaz 2 weeks earlier.
