Running Ed Snowden as the LP candidate would be a damn good idea. Essentially, it would be a modern version of Eugene V. Debs’ SPUSA campaign from federal prison.

The Libertarian Party is choosing its nominee for President and Vice President of the United States this weekend.
As a longtime party member and activist, and a California delegate to our National Convention, I’ve had the pleasure of receiving many emails, texts, messages and phone calls from individuals running for the nomination. Most of the people running, I know personally, and many I would consider friends. I’ve been asked for support, for donations, and for an endorsement.
I haven’t given one.
I sometimes cite the fact that I have a dream candidate, who I spoke about during a speech to the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire in 2019. No, it’s not Justin Amash, though he has his areas of appeal.
My dream candidate is Edward Snowden.
