On August 28 Louisiana will, for the first time in living memory, hold
three statewide party primaries. One will be for the Republicans, one
for the Democrats, and one for the Libertarians. This provides us with
a great opportunity to reject the two major parties and support a third
option. Each vote that is cast in the Libertarian primary will make one
more dent in the armor of the two party duopoly.
I am a candidate in the Libertarian primary for U.S. Senate. Whether
you vote for me or for Tony Gentile, I hope that you will take
advantage of this historic opportunity to participate in a third party
primary. A significant vote share in the Libertarian primary will raise
the profile of Louisiana’s smaller political parties and make it more
likely that those parties will have an impact in the future.
The Libertarian primary is open to registered Libertarians and to
unaffiliated voters. Unaffiliated voters are those voters who either
have no party affiliation or who are affiliated with one of Louisiana’s
nonrecognized parties (e.g., the TEA Party, the Conservative Party,
the Constitution Party, the Pirate Party, the Southern Party, the
Americans of Color Party, the Marijuana Party, the Christian Party).
In 2008 I started and organized the effort to place Ron Paul on the
general election ballot in Louisiana and I served as a Presidential
Elector candidate for the Ron Paul slate.
I have a B.A. in Radio/Television/Film from ULM and a J.D. from
LSU. I’ve worked in television production, finance, and other fields. I
was born and raised in north Louisiana.
I am a member of several civic and advocacy groups, including the
Coalition for Free and Open Elections, Law Enforcement Against
Prohibition, the Marijuana Policy Project, Mensa, and the Kurt
I blog at The Bald Cypress.
