What’s wrong with the Libertarian Party? Nothing. Nothing is wrong with the party in principle. Not too much is wrong with the party’s platform at this point. Clearly, nothing is wrong with the LP’s most active enthusiasts, the ones who do all the work, write all the blogs, and contribute most of the money – because those people are hard at work in this party, in the Personal Choice party, and in the Liberty party, to name a few places.
But something is wrong with the LP leadership, organization, and key personnel. There is a mighty stench of corruption which makes it too foul for many of us to work there. It is hard to get people to contribute money to an organization they suspect of corruptly allocating their money. It is hard to get people to volunteer for a party organization that ignores their opinions and uses party funds to benefit particular candidates before the nominations convention. It is hard to get people to work for a campaign that does not represent their core values.
