"Populist" Libertarian enters Florida Gov's race

LP candidate on a mission to stop those "evil" big bankers

From Eric Dondero:

Well, this is a bit of a change for the Libertarian Party. A George Wallace, Ralph Nader, William Jennings Bryan type candidate?

From, "Libertarian enters Governor’s race":
America's third-largest political party will be fielding a challenge to Governor Rick Scott and presumptive Democrat nominee Charlie Crist in the 2014 election. Florida Libertarian Party Chairman Adrian Wyllie officially announced his candidacy for Governor last week.

Following the trail blazed by Presidential candidates Ron Paul and Gary Johnson in 2012, Wyllie has a platform focused on economic freedom, individual liberty, and the Constitution. In one of his first campaign stops at the Lake City Tea Party last Thursday, Wyllie took a strong stand against what he sees as an overreaching federal government.

"I promise that, if elected, I will defend all Floridians from any unconstitutional Congressional act, executive order or United Nations mandate," said Wyllie. He also blamed Gov. Rick Scott for "rolling over" to the Obama administration on federal health care mandates and federal gun control.
All fine and dandy. And then there's this:
"Our debt is unsustainable, our currency is becoming worth less every day. The Tea Party says the government is to blame. The occupy movement says the bankers are to blame," said Wyllie. "They're both right."
Editor's comment - So, I'm to believe that my local Chase or Wells Fargo branch, the nice little girl behind the counter, and the branch manager assisting me with my car loan is just as evil as the Fed's IRS Agent? Sigh.

He probably is another paleo-conservative; that does not realize who you all are.

Eric Dondero said...

Yes Wesley, you are correct.

Good you picked up on that.

Adrian Wyllie said...

I was specifically referring to the Federal Reserve Banks when making the comment about "bankers."

Would you not agree that the Fed is one of the root causes of our economic crisis? Do you think that Fed policies of inflationary fiat currency, fractional reserve lending, and quantitative easing are detrimental to the prosperity of the American people?

If so, then you must agree that the bankers are as much a part of the problem as the federal government.

Eric Dondero said...

No. I would not agree. The root cause of our economic crisis is Minimum Wage laws, and the fuckwads at the Internal Revenue Service.

The Fed is a stupid-ass issue that is way, way, way, way, way overrated by Ron Paul fanatics in importance.

ABOLISH TAXES. I frankly don't give a fuck about "The Fed."

Eric Dondero said...

And the way you made it sound Adrian, was like you WERE bashing my friendly local Wells Fargo and Chase banker, yeah, the nice hot looking chic behind the counter, and the nice, friendly guy who gives me my car loan.

Sorry, but I like my bank. BUT I FUCKING HATE THE TAXMAN!!!

Eric Dondero said...

Oh, and btw, if you are on the same side of Fuckhead Ralph Nader, and Occupy on ANY ISSUE! than you are indeed fucked in the head. They are the ENEMY OF ALL LIBERTARIANS. There's not a SINGLE ISSUE (outside of maybe marijuana legalization), that we Libertarians agree with those LEFTIST NAZIS on.

Remember, Nader is the fuckface who gave us SEAT BELT LAWS!

I was asked recently, if I was able to write one Constitutional Amendment, what would it be? My answer was, "The 16th and 17th Amendments are hereby repealed." I support abolishing the IRS.

My platform in Florida includes a repeal of tangible taxes, and a plan to reduce, and eventually eliminate, all property taxes.

I am NOT accusing bank cashiers or loan officers at the local branch of being part of our economic problem. Bank employees are equally impacted by the disastrous economic policies of both the federal government and the Federal Reserve.

Eric, if you'd like to have a rational discussion about policy, without wild accusations or leaps of logic, I'd be happy to speak with you.
