Am I Being Unfair to the Republican Liberty Caucus?
At the end of December, I received a postcard in the mail from the Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida advertising their upcoming convention in Kissimmee, Florida. Because I thought it was too kind to the Republican Party, I blogged about the postcard on January 3 in a post titled “The Liberty Wing of the GOP?”
My post caught the eye of Dave Nalle, the chairman of the national RLC, Aaron Biterman, the vice chair of the national RLC, Will Pitts, the state chairman of the Florida RLC, and Philip Blumel, another member of the Florida RLC. They all wrote to me about how unfair I was to the RLC. I was even asked to remove my post. Some Florida RLC members saw things differently, including one that invited me to speak to a regional RLC group.
I’m glad that members of the RLC read LRC. After reading and rereading the comments I received, corresponding with some members of the RLC, and taking a closer look at the mission and principles of the RLC, I considered updating my post. But because I wanted to clarify and expand what I had written, I thought it best to do so in an article.
