LP 2008: Learning from 2004

When doing a bit of research on Joe Seahusen – the ex-LP national director and current Ron Paul Iowa coordinator – I came across a very informative, 30-minute read on Carol Moore’s website. I really don’t know who Carol Moore is, but her site from the 2004 LP presidential convention is rife with lots of interesting tales and stories from that contest that featured eventual nominee Michael Badnarik, America: From Freedom to Fascism’s Aaron Russo and my personal favorite, Gary Nolan.

If true, and I doubt much of what was put on that site, Russo is a cut-throat and personally, I’m glad he lost. Wonder if others (fans) know about his antics during that convention.

The site offers a helpful lesson in what not to do, say, or campaign like in the 2008 LP presidential convention in Denver. It’s worth every 30 minutes of your time to read it…

It even mentions briefly a little testy exchange between Knappster and Moore.

    I’ve read this before. I don’t agree with her assessment of Aaron Russo. The comments that she critisized Russo for I interpeted as being funny.

    Ah, I miss the old attack dog days …

    ... but please don’t be calling Carol names like that, GE.

    Don’t project your abusive misogyny on me, Tom. I didn’t call anyone any name.

    Carol Moore is well known for two things: first, for pushing and pushing hard for a right-to-secession plank in the LP platform; second, for attacking virtually everyone who disagrees with her or who deviates from her beliefs in the slightest as a corrupt socialist mole. She makes me look friendly and pleasant by comparison… but then you read the article, so you figured that out by now.

    Anyway, it’s probably best to avoid citing anything she mentions as fact unless there’s a second, independent source… and to avoid following her conclusions without serious prior consideration.
