I usually quibble over stuff most people find disinteresting. I'm going to take time out to congratulate some of the top brass in the LPIN. Don't mistake my kindness for brown-nosing (this means you Mike LOL).
In 2000, a major change was made in the infrastructure. Brad Klopfenstein became Executive Director, and Mark Rutherford was named LPIN Chair. In those five years, the name Libertarian became something more than "fringe". We now hold the Democrats and Republicans accountable for their actions, and give voters a true, legitimate option to the two parties. Most of that credit goes to Brad and Mark.
Brad is the public face for the party. As president of the Indianapolis Press Club, he talks with reporters on a regular basis for the libertarian position on an issue. Five years ago, that would not have been possible. Mark is a quiet man who captains the ship, for lack of a better term. It's with his guidance and rationale that keeps the LPIN on a course that is true.
OK, enough kindness/brown-nosing. I'm still pissed off at the fact that the Republicans spend like Democrats, the Democrats only care about themselves, and that neither one of them offers an ideology that promotes personal freedoms and individual responsibility.
