Just an FYI for those that don't know The Producer

Libertarian Party
Major Player in Bob Barr's 2008 campaign.

I am sure he is ramping up for Johnson's campaign.

I am sure he is doing what he thinks is a good thing for the Libertarian Party, but this has nothing to do with whether or not Paul's campaign is making the right decisions.

God Bless.

At this point in the game

I don't trust ANY comment from ANY current or past member of the Libertarian Party.
They are out to swerve the RP vote over to their worthless Gary Johnson candidate.

Austin Peterson tried to pull the swerve here on the DP in 2008, under the moniker "The Producer", to pull RP supporters over to Bob Barr. Peterson would be LAST on my list for such a position.

*IF* RP is not the nominee,

*IF* RP is not the nominee, would you write-in Paul or Vote for GJ?

I swear if I didn't have a shady teen/20s years I would run for Pres myself. But I would be afraid they would dig so much stuff up on me. I made many bad mistakes as a younger man.

I would run on a Libertarian or Independent ticket with the Ron Paul styled Libertarian views, Austrian School, Constitutional, Free Market, Non Intervention, etc.

There is no way I'm going to get behind a Rand Paul candidacy.

Just run anyway. If they ask

Just run anyway. If they ask about your past just be honest and say "yeah, I'm not perfect, what about you"? People respond well to people who are honest/blunt. Maybe you won't win, but you'll at least force in a positive dialogue.

to engage in release language such as this. Just sayin. It is grassroots suicide once you jump on this crazy train.

crazy train?

crazy train?

would you prefer rabbit hole? Sorry I didn't mean to confuse you with poor Ozzy lingo, I just want to get the point across. You know?

No, I mean why are the comments crazy?

Because release language is

Because release language is our enemy at this point. We haven't given up at this point so the only thing on our lips should be "what's next." Trying to figure out who to fire after the world has perceived our demise is just plain crazy.

Unless those who initiate that release language have malicious intent. But of course, then it's considered sabotage.

I don't think Austin

I don't think Austin discussed firing anyone. Was just pointing out the campaigns blunders and expressing his frustration.
