They’re all about purging the so called “left libertarians” and restoring an idealistic plank. They haven’t said exactly what the plan is but have mentioned that something big is in the works.

    End the lockdowns
    End the Fed
    End all corporate Welfare
    End the warfare state etc

    Dave Smith is in,
    Pete Quinones
    Eric July
    Angela McArdle

    I’m guessing Tom Woods and Jeff Diest are advising as well?

    If anybody has more info on who or what is going on please clue us in and I’ll add the info to this post.

    Here's a sample of the sort of messaging (coming from the Nevada LP prior to the state convention) Dave was talking about in his tweet:

    Lots of drama this past week with the LNC, LPNH, and basically the entire LP.
    LNC Chair has resigned and decided to use woke terms and tactics by calling the people he doesn't agree with "toxic."

    The Mises Caucus appears to be taking some names in their bid to try and steer the LP in a stronger direction and cut out some of the filth we saw with Jorgensen and the greater party pandering to BLM, etc.
    Welcome to the R3VOLUTION!

    And ironically, they're getting the same kind of pushback and shenanigans from the LP establishment that Ron Paul supporters got from the Republicans - denunciations from "woke" leftarians and "libertarian socialists", resistance and dirty tricks from the "big fish in a little pond" types, and so forth. (I might start a thread cataloging these if there is enough interest and I can find the time.)

    The situation now. though, is very different from (and much more dire than) the situation in the '90s.

    The Libertarian Party is just a subset of libertarians. The majority of libertarians never have been and never will be members. And there's nothing wrong with that. But for better or worse, the Libertarian Party is one of the chief "public faces" of libertarianism, and given the present situation, we simply cannot afford to allow such a venue to be run by leftarians, self-styled "libertarian socialists", and the likes of those who are intent on pandering to and seeking to win a never-to-be-granted acceptance from SJWs and progressives. These are not the kind of people who should (or even can) be "unified" with: https://i.imgur.com/jtoNmNI.jpg

    (They were routed by the "goons" in a clean sweep, by the way. The Mises Caucus won every elected position and now controls the Nevada state party.)

    Given the opportunities afforded by COVID tyranny, rampant wokeness, regnant inflation, looming economic disaster, etc., the lackadaisical, milquetoast, Gary-Johnson-esque messaging and bland appeals to the "lowest common denominator" historically favored by the LP are simply unconscionable. The Ron Paul Revolution has been slowly fizzling out ever since 2012, and if someone doesn't actually do something about it, it's apt to die once and for all, without even a whimper. The Mises Caucus is resolved to prevent that from happening, and whatever its chances may be, with members and spokesmen like Tom Woods, Scott Horton, Michael Boldin, and Dave Smith, those chances are at least as good as any other opportunity we have available.

    In other words, the Ron Paul Revolution needs to "take over" the LP, and if the other factions and caucuses can't accept and come to terms with that, then they are useless ballast that should be dumped - and good riddance! The LP needs to stop being a philosopher-heavy social club for do-nothings who want to jealously guard their "big fish in a little pond" status, and it needs to start being an active vehicle for keeping the ideas and ideals of the Ron Paul Revolution alive. Everyone should be welcome in the party - except those who wish to obstruct or interfere with that purpose. And if that means a smaller[1] and more focused Libertarian Party ... well, then, so much the better.



    [1] And it doesn't necessarily mean that at all. In fact, it seems that quite the opposite is the case. One of the reasons the Nevada "takeover" was so successful was that so many new people joined the Nevada LP via the Mises Caucus, as a direct result of the obnoxiousness of the Nevada party establishment. This lesson was well-learned by the Pennsylvania party's establishment when later, at their own state convention, they had to pull shenanigans in order to prevent the Mises Caucus from "taking over" there, as well. After crowing proudly about all the new members who joined the PA state party (as a result of the Mises Caucus' recruitment efforts, no less), they had the gall to then prevent those new members from voting at the state convention (contrary to long-established custom), thereby forestalling their doom until next year's convention.
