IPR: Celebration of Two Millionth Visitor (June 27, 2012, 10:27 PM)
Apparently our 2,000,000th visitor dropped by earlier today:
Not sure who the 2,000,000th Visitor was, but the Party is still going on around here and on behalf of all of us at IPR we would like to offer you a ride in Midas Mulligan’s car through the valley (Rand), the first rock thrown from the moon when it declared independence (Heinlein), a John Hospers for President button, a first edition of Unsafe at any Speed (Nader), a “Party like it’s 1773″ bumper sticker, a complete physical exam by Dr. Paul, a copy of the Constitution and whatever else the other IPR writers, and you, our readers — without whom none of us would be here, and to each of whom we are exceedingly grateful — can think of to memorialize the event.

This email appeared on the LNC Discuss List, and made its way to the LP Radicals Caucus page on Facebook. Is Wayne planning on leaving the LP? Is this a threat, or an announcement? At this time, IPR is seeking confirmation of both the authenticity of this email and Mr. Root’s intentions.

Time to disassociate from abusive people.
People like you have chased decent and honorable people away from the LP for many decades.
You are abusive, negative, jealous, without class or manners.
Good luck to you.
I will have nothing further to say or do with you…or anyone who supports this disgusting behavior.
Some would call this “putting your peals before swine.”
This party has no interest in mobbing forward…in succeeding…in electing…in getting positive media.
Let it be noted…that I have said until now nothing negative about anyone…I stayed positive…I explained what I believe works…I supported Chairman Neale’s recommended reading…
I pointed out my successful commentaries in front of millions in the past few days at FoxNews…at TownHall (about my love of Texas of all things LOL) and at The Project to Restore America.
Not a word of thanks…no recognition of success…only attacks by the desperate and envious among the group.
This party knows nothing…zero…about how you encourage…thank…celebrate…or inspire success. Nothing. Zero.
It has far too many like Mr Meyers who denigrate and attack what others have achieved out of pure jealousy and envy.
And everyone else is afraid to stand up for what is right…for fear they might get bullied or intimidated.
You have succeeded in chasing one more good person out of this party.
Enjoy your success- it is very short sighted and short lived.
Wayne Allyn Root is the chair of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee, and was the 2008 vice-presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party
