    Charles Jay sounded very calm, rational and moderate. He certainly didn’t sound any more “Libertarian” than Bob Barr.

    All the Pure, Principled, Anarchist and other assorted Libertarians should get back to work inside the LP and help to build a strong Principled voice for Liberty. But, while they are doing it, they need to sound rational.

    Jay did a good job.

    Yes, I agree completely!

    All the Barr supporters should totally get behind Charles Jay.

    He is an awesome candidate.

    I think Bob Barr can be the next Ron Paul as he uses his Libertarian presidential race to return to Congress as a Republican, and continue his principled conservative record in that office.

    As today’s active seniors are staying involved at the highest levels at ever older ages with the progress of medicine, in 20 years Barr can certainly run for President in the Republican primaries.

  4. Unfortunately, the BTP advocates Liberalism, not Libertarianism, and is adding to confusion on the subject.

    It only helps the logicide of the LRC types and right-wingers claiming to be Libertarian, and are neither Libertarian nor Liberal.

  5. Awesome to see the BTP get some airtime!
    LOVE it!

    huh?

    Yes.

  7. I am confused how the Boston Tea Party is promoting liberalism as distinct from libertarianism.

    Is Boston Tea Party liberalism of the classical liberalism view, that governments are a necessary evil created to protect rights, that when a government becomes a hazard to rights it is the right and duty of free people to throw down such government and institute new government to once again protect their rights? If so, then how in general or in specific does classical liberalism differ materially from contemporary libertarianism?

    If the Boston Tea Party is promoting liberal Democrats who want to tax and spend, separate property from owner, and regulate the economy into submission, one would like to see some evidence. On their site they list one Republican candidate, sixteen Libertarian candidates, five non-partisan or unidentified candidates (of whom two are apparently Boston Tea Party members), and two Boston Tea Party nominees.

    To leap to the conclusion that the Boston Tea Party is advocating anything but smaller government and libertarianism is to jump a vast chasm without mechanical assistance. Good luck on the way down.
