Part 3 in a series on Libertarian Party Growth
By guest columnist, Alex Allen
That has been a question raised: are disenfranchised conservatives, looking for refuge from the Trump storm, welcome in the libertarian party?
Craig Dawkins, a fellow blogger on his site “Liberty thoughts,” is not in any haste to welcome them in:
Conservatives don’t need a welcome sign. They need to embrace a new ideology that acknowledges the value of every human being and seeks to promote equality under the law, accepts differences in race, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, and to stop trying to use government to impose upon individual freedom. In short, they need to fully embrace the Non-Aggression Principle (NAP).
So in the end this is quite simple to resolve. Conservatives should embrace the NAP and join the cause for liberty. But can they do that?
Alex Allen is a prodigy in the area of political instincts. As a millennial Okie, he has quite often put old party hacks in their place by the sheer power of his sensible perceptions.One year ago, he wrote 'An Ode To TC Ryan' which had the Republican leadership in Oklahoma all abuzz during the SRLC. His scolding of the "fat balding white guys in the GOP" left the guilty to sit in silence and shame.
What very few of them knew at the time was that Alex had not yet graduated from high school. When the GOP remained hell-bent to reject the key liberty message, Alex switched to the Libertarian Party.
I reached out to Alex numerous times, and today he has again showed his mastery of sensible and workable solutions for prospering as a party organization. Here is an excerpt of his latest prescription for a party to attain maximum impact and healthy respect for the various perspectives which exist among the people who cry out for a liberty solution in our state & nation.
