RE: [CALPCandidates] Re: Platform surveys for candidates and LP leaders

OK Allen, your endorsement got me to click on the link that Kennita had posted in the standard reader-unfriendly insufficiently-contexted I-dare-you-not-to-click-on-this way:

Cute cartoon, but I for one am not ready to apologize for putting some upward pressure on the collective online IQ of the LP.  I see it as somewhat like changing diapers: it's not for everybody, and there surely will come a day when I no longer do it and enjoy the extra time freed up thereby, but I will still think it needed doing, and I will remember that it was not completely without any desirable consequences.

But you're right that, to the extent that candidates and LP leaders aren't interested in stating where they stand with respect to the No 1st Force Pledge and the 18 quotes from the 2004 Platform, then this thread is not a good use of this forum.  Heck, I couldn't even get Starchild to take any such stand, and he's the one who started the thread. :-)
