Who are you and what have you done with the REAL Russell Kanning?  The REAL Russell would never be advocating for a 'political' party, he's opposed to politics.

We don't have to use political means ... in order to have a "political" party. :)
see .... as soon as I advocate engaging  the system ... I get back my small 'l'.

I think the idea is great but I must confess I would prefer another name for it, as it sounds way too much like the Free State Project.  What I love about the FSP is that it doesn't advocate running candidates, etc. 

I do like the name, The Liberty Party though, as it's a term that isn't used much and Free/dom seems to be over used.  I think it's easy for people to grasp and I can hear "Candidate Kanning" using the word Liberty often, in his debates, to bring the argument home and get people to grasp the basic concept behind the "Party."

I thought it was a joke at first. If the real Russell Kanning were dead he'd roll over in his grave at thought.  ;D That said, I like the idea Russell!

I like The Liberty Party too, but the volunteers are really set on using the Free State Party name.
I can also see some of us working the words "free state" into a lot of soundbites also. "Liberty" doesn't roll off the tongue quite as easily.

No State Party?
many of the volunteers have been working tirelessly over the last few years to build up the freestater brand, now it is time to cash in and start getting those campaign checks from large corporations rolling in .... just joking. :)

Screw those volunteers!   I don't give a damn what they want!   (JUST KIDDING)....I do like NON OF The Above Party.....or (OPT OUT Party) or how about "The Get Free Party"....

I know those damn good volunteers will do whatever it is they want to, but "If" I could vote, I'd say DON't "rip off" The Free State name due to the natural confusion it will create on a group who's made a point of trying to stay "a" political (of course I realize there are 4 FSPers in the house though).....but on the other hand.. it's still a semi free country....I really couldn't say whether or not it wouldn't be a good thing or not to give birth to this Free State Party Baby.

So even Russell Kanning compromises under the right conditions.
