Christine Smith Increases Ron Paul Support And Campaign Commitment

LP Presidential candidate Christine Smith yesterday declared an end to the apparent crisis of resolve that gripped her campaign a couple weeks back. She writes: "the most important thing I can do for liberty right now is to help Ron Paul", but also: "As for my campaign, it is stronger than ever thanks to so many of you. [...] Now, I'm more ready than ever to be the best LP Presidential candidate". On Dec. 6, she had written: "Since writing 'I Will Not Compromise - An Open Letter to libertarians,' I have obviously become even more discouraged, and even more disillusioned about the LP. " The open question is the role played in all this by the criticism in Steve Kubby's Dec 1 open letter (skillfully ghost-written by Tom Knapp?).

Smith also promotes this Saturday radio interview, which is her most substantive yet. She reveals a belief that government (including a "strong military") can and should be financed purely through voluntary contributions. She repeats her claim that the LP is being "infiltrated" by people who do not have liberty as a priority. She says (at 4 minutes into the interview) we need to change the entire LNC and "get libertarians there".
