Re: [RLC-Action] Re: RNC Chairman
- His organization (the Campaign for Liberty) is for promoting
libertarianism in any and all parties, including the GOP. The RLC
already exists to promote libertarianism within the Republican Party.
Many of us are involved in both.
And I do not believe he has perverted personal liberty in any way,
shape, or form- even if some of his followers may be fanatics and
paranoid conspiracy theorists.

We can't get a libertarian RNC chairman without first having a significant
number of county and state GOP chairmen. We need to trickle up. We are doing a
bit in this direction, but it is a long term task. We need to learn who are
the fair-weather fiscal conservatives and who are the real free marketers, and
then support the latter at all levels of the GOP organizations.
