2569RE: [RLC-Action] FW: Bob Barr Shows Leadership to Unify Liberty Movement
- Sep 14, 2008However, if the party sees the caucus support another party over the Republicans. it will dismiss the caucus as just a tool for the LP. RLC candidates will never get the Republicam support they need. The party will rightly suggest that liberty-Republicans aren't true Republicans because they support the LP when they don't get their way.
It is not a matter of rolling over. It is a matter of gaining credibility and applying the force within the Republican Party to get our agenda recognized and respected. That doesn't happen by bailing the first sign of not getting our way.

On the other hand, slavish devotion to the Republican Party does nothing to
advance liberty. How can we possibly influence the party leadership when it
knows we'll roll over and support whatever statist manages to get on the
ticket? The attitude of "my party right or wrong" has to go. When the party
is wrong we must not be afraid to tell it is wrong.
