PAT LaMARCHE, 2004 GREEN V.P. CANDIDATE, TO SPEAK ON THE OHIO RECOUNT AT RALLY NEAR WHITE HOUSE

Rally organized by ReDefeatBush at LaFayette Park in Washington, D.C., Friday, November 19 at noon

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Pat LaMarche, the Green Party's 2004 vice presidential candidate, will speak at a rally in Washington, D.C. on November 19 about the Ohio recount effort launched by the Cobb/LaMarche and Badnarik campaigns.

Ms. LaMarche will join Libertarian presidential candidate, Michael Badnarik, at a rally in front of the White House at LaFayette Park on Friday November 19 at noon. The rally has been organized by ReDefeatBush and other groups to protest the "botched" 2004 election and prepare for the "post-democracy era" under the second Bush Administration. 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.

Ms. LaMarche will arrive in Washington, D.C. at 9 a.m. Friday morning and return to Maine at 6 p.m. the same evening. She can be reached by her cell phone at 646-202-0846 today or during the trip.

The Green-Libertarian recount effort has raised the necessary money to file for a recount, and is now raising money for monitoring the recount and related expenses.

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.

While name-calling is great sport, the issue of accurate, honest and complete vote counting integrity is serious business.

Regardless of which candidate a voter picked, it is mandatory that the vote be recorded.

Otherwise, tyranny develops............

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?

I agree with you, and that is what separates a libertarian from an Anarchist. The former realizes that there must be some rules to life, the other believe in a free for all.

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.

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.

The circle is complete, the Libertarians have now actively joined up with the left, in spirit and in action, to destroy the pubs.

If vote fraud is their cup of tea, they could have chosen any number of venues that have had rampant fraud for generations. Places where fraud is considered so business as usual they don't bother to hide it anymore, like Detroit, Chicago and New York. So where does the libertarian party decide to put their money and efforts?

Ohio.


This wraps it up for me. At one time I admired the libertarian party for their steadfast devotion to principle over politics. Unfortunately, over the last couple of years that emotion has gone from admiration to suspicion to revulsion.

I will now oppose the libertarian party at every junction and opportunity. Maybe it's time for the real libertarians on this site to take a hard look at what their party has become.

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?

I agree. They used to be like conservatives, except on social issues, but now they are just liberals. Why would they want a recount if they were on the right?

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.

You know what's really nutty about these two parties doing this? It helps the DemonRats.

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.

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 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.

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."

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.

freedom to speak, publish, assemble, and to engage in such "victimless crimes" as pornography, sexual deviation, and prosti­tution (which the libertarian does not regard as "crimes" at all, since he defines a "crime" as violent invasion of someone else's person or property).

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.
