That's not quite what I asked about. I asked about "when the LP
platform and literature assumes that government never has a legitimate
role". If you know of any language in the 2004 platform that could lead
one to think that government might have some legitimate authority beyond
that of a book club or other voluntary organization, I'd like you to
quote it.

Are you saying that the platform should be written such that when an LP
candidate defends any role for the government whatsoever, she is guilty
of deviating from the platform?
