Here are the sixth and final ballot results from the Denver convention:
Bob Barr 324
Mary Ruwart 276
What a sad day! The collectivists have completely hijacked and destroyed the LP. The LP has now completed its transformation from a Party of Principle to a Party of Backroom Dealing and Opportunism.
As of today, just minutes before the last results were posted, I had decided to bolt from the LP. I left a message with Susan Dickson at the LP National Headquarters, saying that I want to "revoke my membership" with the LP and that I "no longer wish to be a member."
As of today, I have revoked the Pledge and my membership. The LP has died a long death. Goodbye, LP!
It was nice knowing you while it lasted.
All isn't lost. The Free State Project will pick up where the LP left off. Fortunately, I am a member of that organization and will be for many years to come.
R.I.P., Libertarian Party! Rest in peace.
