Kudos to the Libertarian Party of Ohio

The Libertarian Party of Ohio (www.lpo.org) held their annual convention last weekend in Worthington, Ohio. I was there for a Saturday night spiel, and it was a treat to meet so many folks gung-ho to fight for freedom. Many of their activists had a fervor about them which I rarely see inside the Beltway.

The LPO is the fourth-largest libertarian party in the country, and it is rapidly rising. They have a full slate of candidates for this Fall’s election, and they seem far better organized that most LPs. They are hungry to put a dent into the two-party hegemony which has long blighted their state.

Scott McClure was their photographer, and it is with his permission that I repost some of these shots he took over the weekend. The full set of his photos is available here.

    Jim, you’re too damn modest!
    You didn’t even mention the heart attack you gave the OTN (Ohio Tobacco Nazis) when you actually unwrapped that cigar at dinner and held it over a candle to light it.You could hear the chains rattling from the back of the room!
    Seeing you in a tie was well worth the price of admission!
    Damn fine talk, too.
    See you at the Revolution.

    It was great to meet someone who throws more verbal bombs than I do. Loved your speech, and when you return to Ohio, we’ll be much larger and more worthy of FBI infiltration.

    Charlie – thanks! I enjoyed meeting you and hearing your zippety stories.

    Good luck in your race for Secretary of State for Ohio. I expect you will wake up a lot of voters to the perils of the two political dinosaurs that have long ruled the state.

    Brian – I had forgotten about that cigar trick. The challenge is to hold it close enough to the candle that the tobacco leaves start to crackle – but do not burst into a flame that could be detectable on the undercover surveillance video.

    I hope the bass are biting.
