Libertarian Party Freezes Out Ron Paul From Convention

ron paul not allowed to speak at libertarian party convention

 

Ron Paul pretty much WAS the Libertarian Party for several decades. That the Party will not allow the grand-daddy of its own movement to speak at its convention is ludicrous and hastens its own demise.

Although I am not a true libertarian, I am sympathetic to many of the causes of its adherents and admire Ron Paul. He is as honest a man as has been in politics recently and the nation needs to hear his voice.

He deserves much better than this.

Via Liberty Hangout:

With the 2018 Libertarian Party National Convention rapidly approaching, the Libertarian Party Mises Caucus thought that it would be wise to invite Ron Paul, the father of the liberty movement, to the convention. To the shock of any principled libertarian, the leadership of the Libertarian Party rejected Ron Paul, who was their presidential nominee 30 years ago.

Interestingly enough, the Libertarian Party would not have had to pay a dime to host Ron Paul. The Libertarian Party Mises Caucus was willing to pay the speaking fees for Ron Paul, incurring no costs to the LNC. In addition to Paul, the Mises Caucus also sought to bring Judge Andrew Napolitano to the convention. The Libertarian Party rejected these heroes. If one rejects someone like Ron Paul, it is safe to assume that they are not libertarians by any stretch of the imagination.

Here we see Daniel Hayes, the Convention Coordinator for the Libertarian Party, explicitly reject Ron Paul, claiming the former congressman has no idea what the party stands for. Hayes is also a Member-At-Large for the LNC. He is supposed to represent the entirety of the LP’s membership. This is not where libertarians stand, but perhaps the “Libertarian” Party hates Ron Paul and true libertarianism now.

In the article that Hayes is triggered over enough to reject Ron Paul, Paul outlines the failings of the Libertarian Party in 2016. “Unfortunately the Libertarian Party has failed to live up to what should have been its role as an ideological alternative to Washington’s one-party system. As was quite obvious in the 2016 presidential election, the Libertarians yielded to prevailing attitudes on war, welfare, the Federal Reserve, and more. In believing that winning was more important than standing for something, they ended up achieving neither.”
