RIS – Rest in Shame

As if there remained any reason whatsoever to support or be active in the Libertarian Party, this should should remove all doubt.

reason: In 2002, the Libertarian Party called you the worst drug warrior in Congress. No hard feelings?

To be honest with you that’s never come up in our discussions. I’m not going to let minor disagreements come between us.

It has never come up? Minor disagreement? Honestly, I did not even read the rest of the interview beyond that point. Utterly reprehensible. I haven't been a member of the LP for about 5 years, and haven't given them any money either. I used to give them upwards of maybe $500 per year from the mid-90s through about 2001. Whereas I never really begrudged doing that, I'm now ashamed to admit it.


  1. I don't know how you got past:

    I suppose one reason is I was asked by two individuals I respect.

    I have a hard time respecting someone who makes such a big decision simply because a couple of his friends asked him to. I mean, come on, Barr, where are your principles? Not that I'd ask such a question of a politician.

    He's giving Georgians a bad name. I'm just glad this helps show how fundamentally flawed the LP is.
