Question about libertariansSubmitted by californians4ronpaul on Sun, 07/17/2011 - 03:26
Other than Ron and Rand Paul, who are the most libertarian members (or recent ex members) of Congress? I can't think of any. Are there any libertarian governors or recent ex governors, besides Johnson and Ventura? I'm asking this for two reasons. One, to show the lack of possible VP candidates who also have political experience, which, like it or not, is somewhat important to the voting public. While it's nice to dream about Ron picking a libertarian columnist as his running mate, it isn't very realistic. Judge Nap is probably the most politically experienced of the libertarian media personalities. Two, and more importantly if Ron Paul does not win in 2012, who else besides Rand is left in Congress to pick up the fight where Ron leaves off? I don't think we can ever really change anything with just one or two guys in Washington on our side.
