The contact for ReDefeatBush is Joy Howell 202-828-7838, .
Citing widespread reports of voting irregularities, the Cobb/LaMarche and Badnarik campaigns recently launched a joint effort to hold a recount of presidential votes cast in Ohio during the November 2 election.

Actually I wish the republicans leaned more towrds Libertarianism
Everyone should march on Washington at least once in their life. The Vast Right Wing meeting we had in Washington, after the rally to call for Clinton's impeachment is seared in my memory.
Jeeez.... these people are an ingrown hair on the butt of America
You are on crack. Libertarians are nowhere what the used to be...even 10 yrs ago. Just another word for saying I am not a Democrat...but very close to one.
i feel so violated knowing that libertarians were once free to roam this web site.
VERY very true a bunch of bong hitting Losers...
Libarianism is fine, but the Libertarian Party is dead to me < spit>.
The next time some FReeper starts waxing poetical about the LP, I want them to remember this business...
i cannot speak for anybody but myself. while the goal of limited gov't, which the libertarians embrace, is something i am in agreement upon, it is the apparent lack of a policy based on moral values, be they from god or from humanists, that stains them in my eyes. without an agreement on values there is no absulute wrong or right. without this, how can one define a coherent, consistent policy and then implement them properly?
Do they not have jobs?!?!!! How do they get so much time off of work?
I'll be marching in support of Bush on January 20th, inauguration day. I marched there four years ago too.
I have always thought that Libertarians were much closer to Dems than to Republicans. Actually, I like the term used on FR: "Loosertarians." That describes them perfectly, not only as a group, but every single individual libertarian I have ever met.
Why dont they march in Ohio? That would be more relevant.
Libertarian positions are in general less government, less regulation and less taxation. Sound familiar?
Also, we must all work diligently in the coming months to convince progressives that the Democratic Party has let them down. They must abandon the party. Their only recourse is to join and work for the Green Party moving forward. I may even register as a Green Party member to swell their voter registration rolls. Divide and conquer.
Begin with putting all known progressives in your sphere of influence on the Green Party mail list from their website. Great fun. Start inundating them with information now.
Why are they going to Washington? What could any one in DC do about the Ohio totals? Is this going to turn into one of those grossly underattended demonstrations where A.N.S.W.E.R. gets some whacko from every freak, faggot and anti-American organization in the world to blather about their pet hate? If so, we did that. Why not meet in Canton or Xenia or Lakewood? Hey, did some one remember to invite Ralph?
Several years ago, the Libertarian Party was looking somewhat tempting. Now, I see them as merely ***holes.
Paging George Soros
Libertarianism as a political philosophy is one thing, but the Libertarian party is another.
I am basically a pro-life, anti-gay, non-pot-smoking, pro War on Terror, small 'l' libertarian, if that makes any sense.
There's a great potential libertarian-leaning Republican ripe to run for President in 2008.
SC Gov. Mark Sanford!
Now, if I was in a fight, and my opponent was on the ropes, I'd do what I could to finish him off.
Not the American minor parties. They don't recognize an opening when they see one.
The dem's angered their blue collar, traditional, patriotic branch. They angered their leftist, green, anti-war branch.
You'd think that one of these leaders would recognize that the dems are ripe for history's ashcan...especially on the traditionalist side. A bunch of them voted pubbie and another bunch voted dem while hold their noses. And then there's the catholic dems who are hated by their own party.
A blue collar, independence, revisit the life issue, patriotic, union coalition could put the dems out of business and take their place in history.
OK-I don't mean anti-gay, I mean anti-gay marriage. Wanted to clarify that before I get flamed.
Good point. They should rally in OH. Maybe they think the PR they get there wouldnt be as good.
Now they are openly saying Bush stole the election. Just a few days ago they told us this wasnt about overturning the results. Gee, I guess these lefties lied! How shocking.
I guess it's good they continue to do what they do. Makes them look like even bigger nutjobs. If there were any real serious evidence of vote tampering by the GOP you can be sure Kerry, Edwards, Beckel, Carvel, etc would be out there leading the protests.
I took an on-line test not to long ago that was supposed to distinguish your party affiliation. I am a born and bred Republican but the answers I gave this test told me I should belong to the Libertariians. So much for on-line testing. The one's I have seen protesting have the same Bush-bashing potty mouths as the Dims.
I describe myself as follows:
A pro-life, anti-gay-marriage, non-pot-smoking, pro War on Terror, small 'l' libertarian.
In other words, a very conservative Republican!
Back in '97 we changed my son's diaper in Lafayette Park. What we left behind (no pun intended) was our little gift to Slick and Piano Legs.
They're probably civil servants with use or lose time to burn.
Sounds like the Libertarian Party has become the party of Kooks!
How can a so called be Libertarian be for "less government" join arms with Democrats who want "more government"? Something is not kosher here.
That is my belief also.. There is no way in hell that I'm not going to vote for the Libertarian Party ever after this stunt..
I don't understand that either.. I can see the Green Party, but not the Libertarian Party...
George Soros is in seclusion having a sex change operation; he wants to be in the cabinet when Hillary takes over.
I don't understand it either. Which is why this whole thing smells. It's also one of many reasons that I am not a member of the Libertarian party (there are several others).
I wanted to make a snide remark here about the number of votes cast for these folks versus the paper that will be put to use on the recount, but the thought is just to miniscule to consider. Get these folks some tea, or vodka, and tell them to go have a sit in someplace where they think they'll be needed.
Care to post any observations?
Fact is that, no matter who they claim is behind it, I would put money on the Kerry campaign helping to finance this farce. Kerry is as self-absorbed as they get and, even if he can't have the presidency, he would love to spread the idea that he was the actual winner and that the Bush presidency is "invalid."
I wish the Libertarian Party leaned more towards Libertarianism. I used to be a dues-paying member, but I've decided that it's been too much taken over by whack-jobs
The libertarians are doing themselves no good by allying with Greens. Big mistake.
Major case of "Bush Derangement Syndrome"
Subtle slam BUMP.
I can't imagine voting LP on the national level ever until they stop fighting in districts where they merely distract from GOP votes. They should instead focus on districts where they will run as the only opposition to the GOP and from those conservative strongholds work on the party.
Until then, they are dead to me nationally. I'll vote for LP folks in districts where they are the only ones running against the GOP, but only there.
thanks fo your response.
one person's freedom can be viewed as aggression upon another, and therein lies the problem. i may have the right to be free from agression, but will be agressed upon when someone else choses their libertarian freedoms.
i could go on with numerous examples, but i will select but one. sexual deviant behaviour is immoral and breaks apart the american family. sexual deviant behaviour should always have an outlet in society; but it should not be made mainstream. when sexual deviant behaviour is mainstream, i have been agressed upon, yet the sexual deviant will feel it his libertarian right to flaunt his deviant sexuality in my face and to be accepted by society. (i may chose to accept this person, but certainly reject his/her behaviour).
without moral principles, you cannot determine where one's libertarian freedom aggresses upon that of another human being. without such system of moral values, there is no "absolute" that can be applied to society.
