The Independent Political Report post I got this from. (http://www.independentpoliticalreport.com/2008/06/michigan-libertarian-convention-features-pair-of-contested-races-full-slate-of-congressional-and-statewide-candidates/)

Neil Stephenson of V Radio on www.revolutionbroadcasting.com is running for Congress in Michigan's 10th District. He is running on a "Gravel/Paul hybrid platform." The main aspect of Gravel's platform that he is taking is the idea of a national ballot initiative process, or the National Initiative for Democracy (http://www.ni4d.us, http://www.vote.org).

Neil was originally a Ron Paul supporter, and became a Gravel supporter for the Libertarian nomination. I'm not sure what he is now.

This is exciting news. This could be a serious victory for the Revolution and for Gravel's people (me included) if he gets elected. Even if he gains some ground here and runs again in 2010 for Congress or some other office, that would be good.

He is running as a Libertarian.

I wish him the best of luck, but I fear the tyranny of the majority.

What about the tyranny of the minority, like we currently have?

I said that I wished him the best of luck, I'm sure this policy debate is best served elsewhere. We could set up another thread, but I'll refrain from further comment as this is a candidate thread. :)
