The Libertarian Party of Florida Takes Steps to Remove Wayne Root From LNC

• Examiner.com via e-mail fm lpradicals Yahoo! Group

During a regular meeting of the Libertarian Party of Florida's Executive Committee last night, they created a resolution (found below) to repudiate recent comments made by Libertarian National Congressional Committee chairman Wayne Allyn Root and suggested his removal from any leadership position within the Libertarian Party.

While the Libertarian Party of Florida is glad to see the membership growth both on the state and national level, it feels strongly, as per the wording of their resolution, those in leadership positions should be held by a higher standard of libertarianism then the membership or those registered to vote Libertarian.

The resolution came about after an article appeared recently in the weekly magazine Vegas Seven where Mr. Root was quoted as saying,   "I'm kind of re-creating libertarianism. I'm just not going to follow the traditional roots. I'm a Ronald Reagan libertarian. Traditional libertarianism mixes in too many things that are liberal." The statement along with Mr. Roots support of Republican candidates has Libertarians upset with Mr. Root and his attempts to manipulate the Libertarian message thereby confusing the general public as to what a Libertarian stands for. Mr. Root has made similar comments in the media which distorts the Libertarian message.

Here is the resolution as passed at last night's LPF EC meeting:

WHEREAS, the Libertarian Party of Florida Executive Committee is committed to the platform of the Libertarian Party; and

WHEREAS, Libertarian National Congressional Committee chairman, Wayne Allyn Root made the undisputed quote in the November 11-17, 2010 issue of weekly magazine Vegas Seven, "I'm kind of re-creating libertarianism. I'm just not going to
follow the traditional roots. I'm a Ronald Reagan libertarian. Traditional libertarianism mixes in too many things that are liberal"; and

WHEREAS, the Libertarian Party of Florida Executive Committee finds Mr. Roots comments found above will confuse the general public as to what the Libertarian Party's official positions are; and

Screw these Anarchists! They live in Fantasy Politics and when someone gives them a shot of Reality they scream "Anti-Libertarian"! Go join the Boston Tea Party where Tom Knapp is the real V.P. Nominee that is NOT LIBERTARIAN! Sharon Keaton is obviously behind this who is running for the Presidential nomination against Wayne in 2012. Make sense now?

Great News! About Chip Saunders and forks that is.

Folks, the many fine people here at Head Research Laboratories have just announced the creation of our chainmail underpants which should deflect most attacks by fork-wielding Saunderizers. We were trying to make Taserproof shorts but they didn't work. Something about conductivity. But talk about comfortable! I'm wearing them right now and I'd swear it doesn't feel like I've got 5 pounds of .440 stainless up my crack, I'd swear it's more like 4.5.

Reserve yours today! Call now! Operators are standing by!

It took me a few years to fully understand libertarianism but once the bell goes off, it is both a facinating and enlightening experience. You can actually, pretty easily, figure out if any legislation is good policy or bad.  Whereas, Ronald Reagan lied to the America public about cutting the budget, which was one of his primary campaign promises. He than sacreficed short term prosperity and increased government revenues for long term deficits while allowing the military industrial complex to fundimentally take over the political system and partake in the horrible foreign policy that has continued till today. Libertarians speak the truth where Republicans and Democrats lie and history has continually revelled this. Libertarians told the people of the country that the current state of stagflation was going to occur, why it would happen and what we had to do to stop it from happening and to misconstrue this message is a travesty for all the reading, analysis and hard work the we libertarians have put into healing our world.
