R. Lee Wrights Has Been A Visionary

R. Lee Wrights has probably accomplished more for libertarianism than any other single candidate running on the Libertarian ticket in the past several years.  Obviously, I'd like to see any LP candiate have the word, "Economics," present in their educational background;  however, his work in building a website that allows others to promote that essential element in a liberty-centric society is most noteworthy.

The only criticism I've been able to find in him is that he is operating on the assumption that the state will continue to exist after his election as Texas Governor, and everyone knows that that is not a serious criticism.  

His computer operations are doing a wonderful job, I understand, of bringing in new eyes to libertarianism, and this is the kind of building that the Libertarian Party needs in the short term.  

My litmus test for any candiate is about liberty, a comparison of their positions to the 10 planks of "The Communist Manifesto" and "The Eight Dynamics of Slavery," and R. Lee Wrights is the only candidate who passes all eighteen points with flying colors that I've seen anywhere on earth.
