The Libertarian Party Can’t Even Balance Its Own Budget

Ryan Lau | @RyanLau71R

Since its inception in 1971, the Libertarian Party has pointed out serious flaws in the American political landscape. From criticizing endless war to condemning wasteful budget spending, the LP has certainly taken note of legitimate issues. But would the party of Chair Nick Sarwark come remotely close to solving them, if elected into office?

On the topic of war, it’s hard to say; supposedly antiwar candidates frequently back down on their promises. Barack Obama is an excellent example of this, for his policies led to the creation of several new wars and countless drone attacks against civilians. But he is no indication of the Libertarian Party, so it is unfair to say whether they would keep their antiwar promises. On fiscal issues, though, disturbing evidence seriously calls their ability to manage money into question.

The Libertarian Party of Nevada is Literally Brain-Dead

Libertarian Party Nevada Ron Paul Brain-dead
Mason Mohon | @mohonofficial

The Libertarian Party is no stranger to absolute buffoonery. From not wanting Ron Paul to speak at their convention to celebrating getting 1% registered libertarians in 5 states, they continue to blunder. Similarly, a recent campaign on The Libertarian Party of Nevada’s Facebook page only continues this trend. In particular, they are celebrating a “Ron Paul Week” on their page. During this week, they are making daily posts targeting Ron Paul and attempting to “go far beyond the politics of the former Republican Congressman.” But this is just another sad brain-dead social media attempt to garner any form of legitimacy. And embarrassingly so.

Meet the 2020 Libertarian Candidates

As the 2020 presidential election approaches, there is much talk about the boisterous and ever-growing democratic field. However, the 3rd largest American political party, the Libertarian Party, also has a primary ahead of them.

In 2016, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson was able to garner small doses of media attention. However, the 2020 libertarian candidates seem rather unknown. Information on the candidates is limited, but outlets like Chris Spangle’s “We Are Libertarians Network” have done their best through their presidential candidate and debate series hosted by Hodey Johns.

Note that this is not a conclusive list of all candidates. Rather this is a short description of the most prominent figures who have announced their campaigns.

Maj Toure is Running for Philadelphia City Council

Kevin Damato | @KevinCDamato

Maj Toure, an activist and founder of the Black Guns Matter educational movement, recently announced his candidacy for Philadelphia City Council At-Large.

Maj is running under the guise of the Libertarian Party, but exaggerating his grassroots and solution-based style. Maj’s appearance as an outsider separates him from the “self-interested, politically corrupt posers” who he says currently run the city.
