    Jo Jorgensen Wins Libertarian Party Presidential Nomination

    Jo Jorgensen Wins Libertarian Party Presidential Nomination
    The Clemson psychology lecturer and 1996 Libertarian vice presidential candidate got 51 percent on the fourth ballot.

    5.23.2020

    In a day-long virtual meeting, after four ballots, the 1,035 delegates assembled for the Libertarian Party's online convention selected Jo Jorgensen as their presidential candidate.

    She won with slightly over 51 percent of the vote (not every delegate voted in every round) on that fourth ballot, with 524 votes. Jacob Hornberger came in second, with nearly 28 percent of the vote. Vermin Supreme came in third, with 20 percent of the final vote.

    Reason ran an interview with Jorgensen, a lecturer in psychology at Clemson who was the party's vice presidential candidate on a ticket with Harry Browne in 1996, on Thursday.

    The party's voting procedure involved six candidates officially in nomination: Jorgensen, Jacob Hornberger, Vermin Supreme, John Monds, Judge James Gray, and Adam Kokesh. (Members could vote for other people if they wanted, or for none of the above, and many did.)

    Jorgensen led the vote in every round, though she was only 12 votes ahead of runner-up Jacob Hornberger on the first ballot. As per the party's procedure, the lowest vote getter in each round was technically eliminated for the next one.

    F&ck.

    I thought for sure Jacob would have won. He had a way of explaining things crystal clear and did not back off of questions.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    If they all continue along their own avenues, each will have their following to bring more people in. Vermin made that point quite nicely, I thought.

    Resistance becomes a duty when you live in a police state.


    Why is Assange in jail, but Clinton isn't?

    Why did Snowden throw away his life to warn Americans about the dangers of tyranny?


    How can officials and the Gestapo take an oath to defend the Constitution and then violate it everyday? Is a paycheck more important than freedom?

    I watched the final LP debate and was quite unimpressed with pretty much everyone. John Stossel did not lob them softballs and they all struggled to answer the questions directly. They also seemed to struggle moving from abstract theory to concrete solutions.

    For some reason I can't find anything at all about her family. Usually there's at least some mention somewhere of who spouse is but not her.

    Her positions look ok but I don't know much about her and there's not much info available, either. Meh.

    (eta: looks like husband is Sutton Graham, plastic surgeon. Intelius search helped.)

    The real deep state is very happy that Jacob wasn't nominated. I'm sure Jorgensen won't mention a peep about the CFR.

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    I didn't watch the Reason debate but just read the bios and hoped they would be smart enough to pick Gray or this woman. Glad to see they did.

    As far as sticking to theory, it wouldn't be libertarianism if candidates gave thoughtful workable solutions. Once you give real solutions then you become impure.

    Libertarian Party Picks Spike Cohen as Its Vice-Presidential Candidate
    Cohen, who had been linked with parodist Vermin Supreme, identifies as an anarchist.

    BRIAN DOHERTY
    5.24.2020

    Spike Cohen, who runs Muddied Waters Media, won the Libertarian Party's nomination for vice-president today. On the online convention's third ballot, Cohen got 533 votes—52 percent of the total—narrowly edging out former presidential candidate John Monds.

    Jo Jorgensen, a Clemson psychologist who served as the party's vice presidential candidate in 1996, was chosen as the Libertarian presidential nominee yesterday in a separate vote. Jorgensen had expressed a preference for Monds to be her vice president.

    Cohen has linked himself to political satirist Vermin Supreme, who ran this year for the party's presidential nod. He has written on Supreme's campaign website that his worldview "lines up solidly with the Libertarian Party Platform, with the only exceptions being when I think it doesn't go quite far enough in promoting maximum freedom. I understand that the Platform is an attempt to compromise between different positions and I completely respect that, but as an individual candidate my policy is anarchy."

    5% of the national vote, gets you 5 seats in Parliament
    A tax return has 4 fields
    Business licenses aren't even a thing nor are capital gains taxes

    PLATFORM

    My name is Spike Cohen, and I’m running for the Libertarian nomination for Vice President. My beliefs lines up solidly with the Libertarian Party Platform, with the only exceptions being when I think it doesn’t go quite far enough in promoting maximum freedom. I understand that the Platform is an attempt to compromise between different positions and I completely respect that, but as an individual candidate my policy is anarchy.

    With that said, I realize as that as Vice President I will not be able to simply snap my fingers and make government go away. For that reason, I am willing and eager to compromise as hard as I absolutely need to in order to change government from the inside. As we all know, compromising on principle with sociopaths who want to enslave the world is a surefire way to achieve positive change.

    To that end, I am unleashing my Verbal Agreement For An Even Better America, which builds upon Vermin’s 4 Point Platform of Free Ponies, Mandatory Tooth Brushing, Zombie Power and Killing Baby Hitler to create the greatest world any of us could possibly imagine.

    I pledge that all of these things will happen in the first 100 days of our administration, or else I will resign and be replaced with Baby Yoda:
    HOBBIES

    Full legalization of recreational plutonium. (this one is serious)
    BREAD

    Free cheesy bread with the purchase of any Federal Explosives Permit.
    HISTORY

    Also going back in time to kill Baby Woodrow Wilson, which ultimately makes killing Hitler unnecessary but we’re still going to do that too.
    TAXES

    Replacing the income tax with a lottery, where the winner gets to sign the constitution and/or the face of any politician of their choice.
    DEFENSE

    Retrofitting the ponies of any willing owners with 20mm vulcan cannons.
    BADGER

    Literally just a badger.
    LATE NIGHTS

    Waffle Houses on every corner. (this policy is a blatant act of cronyism to the Libertarian Party Waffle House Caucus for purely political purposes)
    SUPREME

    Impeaching every member of the Supreme Court, and replacing them with the janitor. His name is Reginald, and he will be our King. #AllHailReginald

    BIO

    Spike Cohen was born Jeremy Cohen at an extremely young age in 1982. At the age of 3, Jeremy went to the theater with his family to watch the My Little Pony movie. After witnessing the heroism and bravery of Spike the purple dragon, he informed his family that Jeremy was in fact dead, and he was now Spike. This bit of information proved to be a strong indicator of how Spike would conduct himself for the rest of his life.

    At the age of 16, Spike was informed that he couldn’t simply do drugs his entire life, and that he either needed to start a career or go to university. Spike decided to learn how to do web design, and within a couple of years he had a successful business. Spike credits the lack of occupational licensing requirements for his ability to go into business with minimal barrier to entry.

    Everything seemed to be going perfectly. Spike had a growing business, a beautiful and loving wife, lots of friends and much more. But yet he felt unfulfilled by life. But that was all about to change.

    In 2016 at the age of 33, Spike was diagnosed with MS. In that moment, he realized that he needed to make drastic changes. He retired from web design, took a nearly 2 year long hiatus and decided to refocus his life on what he truly loved: spreading the message of liberty, self-ownership and nonaggression.

    In 2018, Spike became the co-owner of Muddied Waters Media, the co-host of The Muddied Waters of Freedom (with his partner Matt Wright) and host of his own show, (((My Fellow Americans))). He has found tremendous, seemingly endless joy and purpose in sharing freedom with everyone he possibly can.

    It is with that same joy that Spike has accepted Vermin Supreme’s request to be his running mate for President and Vice President of the United States of America.

    If you vote for us, Spike will kiss you on the forehead.

    Jesus, LP is a f'n joke. If the last nomination process wasn't evident, it is now.

    Its a waste of time. They should be concentrating all of their efforts winning WINNABLE races and not trying to appear like national party. They need a star and have ZERO.
