Caveat: I don’t personally belong to the LP or have any positions on its internal faction fights. I do have an interest in anti-state movements and enjoy observing these things from the sidelines.

For those unaware, one of the most disgraceful state Libertarian Parties WAS the Nevada contingent. Their Twitter account was an ode to woke-leftism in which war was barely mentioned, but “Trans-Rights” and anti-Mises Caucus (MC) rhetoric was prevalent. However, due to boots-on-the-ground activism, that party was purged of that cancerous influence this past weekend, with every elected office filled by someone from the MC. The new Chair of the Nevada Libertarian Party (LP), Charles Melchin, was elected overwhelmingly in a three-way race, 62-18-18. That’s what I call a slaughter.
With the MC successfully mobilizing to “take over” (I don’t care who hates that term) the most vile of state parties, the question is now what should be done next? With that kind of power being rallied, what do you do with that power? In my opinion, this takeover is evidence that after the Reno convention in 2022, the Mises Caucus will dominate the elected positions in the national party. This is where the “nice people” may disagree with me.
