I am not denying the fact that Dubbya is a fine man and a good member, but I would like to run for Party Whip. I am very active and I have a Skype account in which I am also active. I work well with others, but I am not afraid to take a stand...

I've already done it. I think it's nice to see the positions change since it's a simulation.

If you want to believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster, you have that right. The government has no right to interfere with any of that. Those are individual rights. I believe in a strict interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. That is what we should

Base everything off of in the government. I do not believe that was the foundation of our government, I believe that IS our government, that is how it is supposed to work. That's how our forefathers wanted it to be. I will make sure that everyone

BillyJoe seems to be a very good candidate for the position, who seems to have an idea of what he wants to do, though I also have a vision for, not only the libertarian party, but also the United States. I have a vision for freedom. A vision for

Liberty, a vision for a greater America, a vision for the country we so proudly imagined in the days of George Washington and all of his brothers. I foresee a government where we not only have economic freedom, but also social freedom, religious

Freedom. The government shouldn't tell you what to do with your money, I will fight my hardest to make sure they don't. They shouldn't be able to tell you who you can sleep with and who you can marry, I will fight my hardest to make sure they don't.

Thank you fellow libertarians for electing me party whip. I will do my best to ensure that the party is heard, and acknowledged. With your cooperation, we can get this country back to the way it was meant to be. Again, thank you all.

Hi everyone!
JackVTM has resigned to take the Budget Director position, so we're looking for a new Libertarian Party Whip. You just need a Skype and the ability to work pretty well with others. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Not just because of my views, but because I don't make a single move without contacting my libertarian counter parts first.

I have a thought: Dubbya, do u have a vision for the party? Do you have ideas? I am also slightly concerned over my party whip being named Dubbya when a president I hate had that nickname

I have a vision for the party to get our ideas across to the good people of America. It's more of a vision for the country. A vision that one day we will have this country back to the greatness that it once was. We're not following the constitution

As we should. That is the most prized document in the world in my eyes. That is how we are supposed to run our country. We are not supposed to infringe upon rights of our citizens, that is not our job. Our job is to keep this good country safe from

...facts that the Libertarian Party is the party of common sense and the Constitution. We need to establish a platform to highlight these amazing facts about how we are different from your regular parties.

Not usually, I am prepared to make a decision without consulting the party, but it never has to happen given that I contact three members at least four times a week, and I know that I can get ahold of one of them at any given time of legislation.
