Jarret B. Wollstein, ISIL founder, writes:
For several years, the LP seems to have been caught in the black hole that the Republican Party has become. What was once a glorious “neither left nor right” coalition of freedom-lovers has increasingly become a political retirement home for disgruntled and unsuccessful Republicans. Now “Republicanitis” threatens to destroy everything the Libertarian Party stands for.
[Barr's] congressional record set new records for authoritarianism. And not just inertial, rubber stamp authoritarianism, but the most active, venomous kind. He wrote a law to prevent the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriage, even if the states did. He thundered from the House podium that American military personnel must not be allowed to practice religions he disapproved of. He voted for the Patriot Act. He voted for the war on Iraq. He sponsored legislation to prevent the District of Columbia from counting the votes on a referendum to legalize medical marijuana.
If I had produced a stage production of 1984 while Bob Barr was in Congress, I’d have put his photo on the posters of Big Brother.
Why would this party, founded as “a libertarian political entity separate and distinct from all other political parties or movements,” self-destruct by choosing a right wing authoritarian as its most prominent representative?
CIA asset Bob Barr attempting to divide and conquer a political party whose anti-state ideology has become enormously popular due to Ron Paul? Never.
