    He looks like a dodgy second-hand car dealer. How appropriate for a dealer in second-hand ideas! He is the LP’s Peter Keating!

  2. Tannim Says:

    This is over a month old and it’s released NOW?

    Such wonderful response time…

  3. Stefan Says:

    Goldwater would never talk like him, in fact very few serious politicians would mention straw polls and how he supposedly won a poll/debate. He mentioned Paul is 72, well Reagan was also that age about and Paull is still very activel physically and mentally.

    MARY’S OUR BEST CHOICE FOR PRESIDENT! GO MARY!

  5. Kenny Says:

    Nice to see our resident GOP troll trying to bail his hero WAR. His problem is that the WAR-monger’s campaign is fucked!

  6. Eric Dondero Says:

    This totally sucks. For the first time in 36 years, the Libertarian Party finds itself with not one, but two outstanding Presidential candidates: Bob Barr and Wayne Allyn Root. Never before has the LP been faced with two truly great candidates at the same time.

    I’m at the point now, where I think we should just flip a coin. Either one of these gentleman would be great for both the LP, and the overall libertarian movement. Both would make us extremely proud.

    Mann, can’t we get these guys on the same ticket or something?

  7. Richie Says:

    A Barr/Root ticket would be a disaster. Barr/Ruwart, on the other hand, would be perfect.

    Has Eric Dondero Rittberg stopped beating his wives?

    Nobody cares what Eric Dumbdildo has to say,

    Especially Wayne Root, who avoids you like the plague.

    Don’t let the door hit you in the ass, on your way out the door, Erika!

    P.S. Just produce one photo of you in uniform and I will never say another word about you. Otherwise you are a fraud and deserve to be hounded out of here.

    Good speech. I’m still rather leary of Wayne Root as a Presidential candidate. It seems to me to be a case of too much too soon. Just two years ago Wayne Root was singing the praises of neo-cons like Bush, McCain, etc…

    If Wayne had a stronger anti-war stance (from the beginning) and didn’t so much to Republicans I’d be more comfortable with him.

    Assuming that Wayne’s convergance to Libertarian is for real I hope that he sticks around the party and continues to develop.

  12. Andy Says:

    “If Wayne had a stronger anti-war stance (from the beginning) and didn’t so much to Republicans I’d be more comfortable with him.”

    Should say, “and didn’t cater so much to Republicans”.

    Where were you in 1987? We had Ron Paul, and the candidate we should have chosen, Russell Means. And according to Bob Murphy (that we both served on LNC with), he had Frank Zappa almost ready to announce (something about cancer and spending his remaining days with his family kept him from announcing)!

    The LP does NOT need Barr or Root. The LP needs a Libertarian to lead the ticket.

    PEACE

    I admit, I should have watched this video before I responded to Eric.

    But today, I spoke at the HempFest. I made many of the same points that Root did in this video. But I dare say that I came off better, more believable, than Root. And my “speaking style” makes Phillies look charasmatic. And I don’t think anybody felt they needed a bath afterward.

    PEACE

  15. Bill Woolsey Says:

    Has anyone credible actually provided evidence of
    Root’s supposed evolution from a neolibertararian
    to his current stance?

    I didn’t pay much attention to his positions early in
    the campaign, though I did hear he supported the war
    in Iraq.

    Root’s statement on foreign policy that was posted on this
    site includes some “neolibertarian” ideas, but tempered by
    realism. So, I find it completely credible that Root was
    a neolibertarian before, but has finally come to see how the
    supposed benefits have failed to materialize, and that the costs
    have been massive.

    Still, I am interested in seeing his earlier neo-libertarian statements.

    Bob Murphy served on the LNC? He was recruiting Zappa? Wowie zowie, my head’s spinning.

  17. Steven R Linnabary Says:

    Susan-

    That would be the Bob Murphy from Oklahoma.

    FWIW, Bob also attempted to recruit David Stockman (he was too busy on Wall Street) and G. Gordon Liddy (who would not run as a Libertarian). This was, of course, several years before Liddy’s radio show.

    Bob figured that with two celebrity candidates (Means & Paul), he might try to get others. Zappa had been in the news in recent years testifying to the Senate against the Tipper Gore inspired plan to censor some rock-n-roll lyrics. Bob said that each of the celebrities were easily accessible. Zappa was the only one interested, and immediately flew him to California to discuss the idea.

    This was all reported in LPNews, circa 1987-88.

    PEACE
    Steve
