I voted Ron Paul, but if not him and Thompson declines to run, I say Kubby, since he's at least endorsed Ron Paul if he somehow becomes the Republican nominine. This should earn him the loyalty of alot of Paul supporters if Paul decides not to run.

most of the above are not anarcho-capitalists... mostly they're minarchists, which isn't the same thing. Tongue

Like most discussion about the Republican and Democrat primaries, it doesn't.

But we're entertained so we continue.

Also a credible politician. Best performance by a Libertarian in a competitive three-way (competitive meaning the Dem and Rep were close; Carla Howell I believe got 12% but that was a Ted Kennedy landslide with a joke Republican) statewide race that I can think of with 11% running for Wisconsin governor, was included in the debates even. Was elected the mayor of his hometown a couple years ago and he wasn't even on the ballot, got elected via write-ins (annoying the one standing candidate who thought he would get voted in by acclaimation).

I really don't care for u1% parties, but I voted for Kubby unless Ron Paul is nominated by the LP somehow.

Stephen Kubby has a good chance of winning the Libertarian Nomination, only because I highly doubt Ron Paul would be nomination.
