• GOP race down to two, Ron Paul rides late delegate gains into Austin (w/ video coverage)

    AUSTIN -- For Texas Congressman Ron Paul, Austin is home turf.

    "You can see the stickers everywhere," said supporter Sarah Rice, who arrived hours early for Paul's scheduled appearance at the University of Texas. "You can just really feel the power behind Ron Paul here in Austin for sure."

    With Newt Gingrich's impending exit, the GOP primary is down to just Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. Trailing far behind Romney in delegates, belated wins in Iowa and Minnesota announced this week have inched Paul closer the five states in which he needs a plurality of votes in order to punch his ticket to the Republican National Convention in August.

    "The money keeps coming in, the crowds keep getting bigger and the enthusiasm is increasing," Paul told KVUE shortly after addressing the crowd assembled on the university's LBJ lawn. "So we're going to keep maximizing our efforts to get the most amount of delegates, have a presence at Tampa and keep this whole freedom movement going."

    Hope defines his supporters, who are still optimistic despite discouraging polls and delegate counts.

    "Well I think some of it's fraud," reasoned supporter Kip Davidson. "The straw polls really don't count really, and all the delegates haven't been counted yet."

    "They're going to come through. I don't trust the numbers that they're putting out," said Kevin Martin. "They'll come through, he's got a strong delegate strategy."

    Minarchy May Be The Only Viable Practical Path To Freedom

    Thread Starter: osan

    I see this as a grassroots issue as it speaks to strategy as much as philosophy. If admins feel otherwise, move it elsewhere. http://freedomisobvious.blogspot.com/2016/09/minarchy-may-be-only-viable-practical.html The prospects for proper human freedom appear to be waning in this age of brazen usurpation and other governmental corruption.

    Reforming the Libertarian Party

    Thread Starter: CCTelander

    Anyone who knows me knows that I believe that electoral politics is almost completely worthless as a means to advance the cause of liberty. The idea that you're going to get a bunch of "liberty candidates" elected to positions of power and then use that power to drag the general populace into a state of liberty (whether they want it or not) is, at best, extremely problematic on various levels....
