RE: Questions That Radical Libertarian Candidates Won't Answer

GD) why would you put something irrelevant on a sales document? (GD

I don't know; ask the radicals who want to put such things in the LP platform (which every LP candidate should presumably want to link prominently from his campaign site).

I advocate exactly the same sized government in candidate forums and on my campaign site as I advocate on the LP Platform Committee and on Libertarian online forums.  I've yet to find a radical LP candidate who can say the same thing.  And yet, some of these same LP radicals accuse LP reformers of advocating a "stealth" strategy of trying to "trick" voters into voting Libertarian.  There's a word for that.  It starts with H.

Since I'm not embarrassed by the amount of government I advocate, I don't have to worry about it interfering with my "sale".  In fact, my entire sales pitch is about the proper role of government.  A real LP radical is one who leads with his Libertarian principles, instead of preaching them only to the choir.

Don't light the lamp of liberty and then put it under a basket; raise it up high for all to see.
