- I have read the "paleoconservative manifesto"
of the American Party. The only clear difference
from our manifesto is in the area of drugs.
They are about an inch short of out right support for the "war". They
favor protective tariffs. They want illegal immigrants deported.
Presumably we are all against the "new world
order". The republicrats may even be against
it by now.
Mr. Sensor characterized the document as
"Birchist". I would characterize it as predominantly strict
constructionist. The Constitution was quoted through out. Their
call for an end to most taxes, social security, all subsidies, had a
familiar ring. Of course they are gun nuts.
I would remind them that they betray the
Constitution as they seek a prohibition of
drugs and immigration, unless they elected
Politics1 states that their numbers are severely
I would favor constructive engagement with
the possibility of absorption. The absence of
a local LaRouche element is a precondition.
Its unfortunate that Mr. Lawrence has with

it as paleoconservative, which it is. That's not a perjorative term; it
simply refers to unmodified conservative terms. There are also
neoconservatives, such as William Kristol and much of the editorial staff of
the Weekly Standard. Read R. Emmett Tyrell's "The Conservative Crack-Up"
for more information on paleo- and neoconservatives.

- I'm not sure what this fandango is all about. The American Party can't
swing enough votes to help elect a dog catcher. The Reform Party in DE
isn't much better. They are nice people to talk to but they know even
less about getting media attention than we do. If we got all the so
called third parties behind one candidate, we might add a couple of
percentage points to his total. Since we have no media director to get
press releases out or someone in Dover to keep tabs on what mischief
they're doing down there, it doesn't matter.

currently have ballot access in Delaware, meaning that all thoughts of
cross-nominating an AP/LP candidate are moot.
- An LP party official might attend an American
Party meeting as an observer. An official
contact on motor voter couldn't possibly hurt.
This is more controversial, but they might be
invited to help us celebrate Tax Day. There
is no reason to suggest they are not fervently
and equally opposed to economic bondage.
I would not oppose helping them gain ballot
access, particularly if asked. If we ended up
with two defections, and ten extra votes for
our candidates, I would call it a great victory.
This is real. They appear to be an endangered
species. Their web page lists no state affiliates. I may have over
estimated their local numbers in my last paragraph.
For all we know, Mr. Lawrence may have
spoken with the last two.
