Thread: James Weeks II's LP Convention Strip Tease

  1. #1

    Default James Weeks II's LP Convention Strip Tease




    Should he be punished, or is the fact that he won't ever be taken seriously again in LP affairs punishment enough? I go with the second option, but others differ in thinking that he could hurt Libertarian campaigns across the board.

    I understand the LP is the party of tolerance and all. But they are starting to be taken seriously now with two governors on the ticket. Maybe the fat stripper dude should have at least been taken off camera?

    This is why we can't have nice things.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Freedom of expression.
    The most important element of a free society, where individual rights are held in the highest esteem, is the rejection of the initiation of violence.

    I thought the name sounded familiar. He's from my area.

    Sigh.

    If the goal is to $#@! around with your libertarian friends, have a poker night, and you can behave as outlandishly as you please.

    But if the goal is to change the government of this country, cut this stupid $#@! out and act like people voters might want to vote for.

    Still less embarrassing than nominating Weld.

    Does the LP have any published code of conduct or similar rules? This is all I can find and I didn't see anything about conduct:
    http://www.lp.org/files/2014_LP_Byla...4_JC_Rules.pdf

    So perhaps that could help set expectations in the future.

    Don't TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

    That is the LP standard.

    I think he is safe because no, gasp, penis was displayed. Everybody knows that would have evoked a police state response even.

    In my opinion, things like this don't affect the whole party any more than GOP delegates hiring hookers.

    ^^^ This.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to angelatc again.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    This election is so depressing.

    God is either testing us, or playing a joke on us (and laughing his ass off).
    Brawndo's got what plants crave. Its got electrolytes.



    H. L. Mencken said it best:


    “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”


    "As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

    Just because libertarians support everyone's right to be an idiot doesn't mean you are obligated to be an idiot yourself. Some libertarians seem to not understand that basic part of living amongst other people.

    And no, he should not have his membership suspended. He is indicative of the direction the Libertarians have taken, and people with consciences and deeply held religious convictions have a right to make an informed decision.
