Back!

Just got back and I am here to report the Ben Swann Liberty Forum was an amazing success. I didn't do a head count but imagine 90-120 people were crammed into that warehouse.

Pros
Terry Holcomb was F-ing awesome. Swann tracked him down and shook his hand a second time after he spoke.
Steve Munisteri admitted to the transgressions of the party in 2012 and updated on some headway to try and correct those wrongs.
Dwayne did good but didn't really hit it out of the park.
Patterson got probably the most applause
Medina did really good discussing abolishing the income tax.
Judge Jim Gray got people clapping for the libertarian party.
Ben Swann threw some jabs at the GOP and the left/right paradigm
RLC of CD 36 did a good job hosting, but the transitions and introductions for speakers were poor

Cons
Only two bathrooms
Dwayne didn't stay long enough
Gary Johnson read notes off a legal pad during his speech (he's running in '16)
Ben Swann did more listening than talking, would have been cool to hear more from him.
On nullification, some of the denser candidates wouldn't answer Swann's question if it is okay to nullify constitutional along with unconstitutional federal laws, Holcomb was the ONLY PERSON to answer that.

Couple questions...

Thanks for the report. What sort of things did Patterson get applause for? Did he say anything surprising? I heard him speak at a gun rally down in Austin last year. He mentioned how he wrote the concealed handgun law, but he said it was just a step in right direction.

Why do you say Johnson is running? Did you just get that impression, or something more? Did seeing him in person make you more impressed with him at all? or not?

Did you get any meaningful one-on-one time with any of the public speakers?

Don't remember his exact

Don't remember his exact words but I think Johnson did verbally say he was running again. I was disappointed he read off of a legal pad but liked most of what he said.

Patterson just talked about the right to defend yourself and property and that government shouldn't be involved.

No comment on Johnson, I will try not to beat that dead horse unless he runs again. I guess he is doing some good. Maybe.

Cool event but

I am surprised they don't have more Republican Candidates and Incumbents listed, after all, it is the RLC. They endorsed Steve Stockman from CD36 so I assumed the event would revolve around him.

And Jerry Patterson was the RLC chair so....

But a bunch of those people are LP members, not a bad thing, I guess it might be more about Ben Swann than the RLC. But I heard a Johnson interview on RT. And he had nothing nice to say about Liberty Republicans, kinda bashed the PaleoCon movement.

I wish I could go.

Steve Stockman has been in

Steve Stockman has been in the news lately for campaign funding discrepancies by several newspaper outlets in Texas. I think he might be laying low.

But yes there could be a lot more. State-Rep Johnathan Stickland would be a good addition.

Southern Agrarian

I had not heard that about Stockman

Bad news, I hope they don't pull a Traficant on him. Still, no Stickland, or David Simpson, or Giovanni Capriglione? maybe they invited them and they are busy or something.
