Byron Schirmbeck, Campaign for Liberty Challenging mud-slinging attacks on Chairman James Dickey

I am still looking for specific names… “the who is this “you” that you keep referring to “? 

What we are really talking about is the same fight that has been going on since at least 2008 in response to Obama’s election and the Republicans working with him against our values with massive taxes, spending debt and Obamacare. This is the same struggle between the grassroots who care about principles and the cocktail class Republicans,  with not dime’s worth of difference between them and the Democrats. Attacking the grassroots directly wasn’t working for them, so the new tactic by the establishment folks is to paint all opposition to them as just coming from “interlopers” who aren’t really Republicans. It would be laughable if there weren’t so many gullible people that could fall for it. That the Libertarian party,  who cannot get their own people elected as dog catcher in local elections, a minor party that can barely get national candidates on all the ballots, somehow have organized and masterminded a takeover of one of the two major political parties in the country and were so well organized and influential that they not only got a Texas Senator elected but also were responsible for the last two GOP presidential defeats is laughable. So if you are pushing this lie then you are firmly on the side of McCain who cast the last vote against ending Obamacare, you are on the side of Lindsey Grahamnesty and Mitch McConnell.  I also find it laughable that someone who says they are a Trump supporter is staunchly in the same camp as the establishment GOP who have been working to sink our President since the beginning.

Interesting you talk about the platform, most of the complaints I have heard from people accusing the grass roots TEA party people of being “Libertarians” has been over the “Libertarians” expecting elected Republican officials to follow the platform like constitutional carry and were deeply involved in pushing the rule 44 against Straus and Cook for not following the platform all the while the establishment Republicans were saying we shouldn’t “attack” Republicans for not following the platform. They are also the ones pushing for reducing the platform size so it would be harder to force elected GOP officials to follow it.

But, let’s be accurate, you actually are not talking about Libertarians. You are talking about Liberty leaning Republicans. Virtually all of the Liberty leaning Republicans that I know and that Asche and Company want thrown out of the party are staunchly pro-life.
