Darryl W. Perry endorses Jo Jorgensen for president

Darryl W. Perry
From Darryl W. Perry‘s Facebook page, February 28th, 2020:
When the 2020 Libertarian POTUS race began, I was thrilled to support my friend Kim Ruff. However, she departed the race on January 11, 2020. Since then, I have been asked countless times who I’ll be supporting, and have taken a closer look at all of the announced Libertarian candidates for President. There are several candidates in this race that I respect, and that I could support should they get the nomination. The candidates I could support all know how to articulate Libertarian principles, though they have different styles in how they deliver their message and issues on which they focus. One of my top pet issues is Criminal Justice Reform. As a Presidential candidate in 2016, and now as a gubernatorial candidate in NH, pardoning all people convicted of non-violent victimless crimes has been a major part of my platform, along with repealing those laws altogether. Other top issues include ending the wars, bringing the troops home, free trade & open immigration, cutting the budget, and reducing taxes to as close to zero as possible. These are all issues that libertarians and Libertarians should be able to agree with, however a few of the candidates in the race, sadly, do not. Of those who do, there is one candidate I believe will best articulate and promote these ideas, and has a resume to support this belief. I’m endorsing a candidate who is a Life Member of the Libertarian Party, has been a member since the 1980’s, and was the 1996 Vice Presidential nominee. I am endorsing Jo Jorgensen for President of the United States, and urge you to likewise support Jo Jorgensen: the perfect Libertarian to represent the Libertarian Party in 2020!

Libertarians gathered across the state at county level caucuses and conventions to elect officers, build county committees and select delegates to the 2020 LPIA State Convention. Additionally, The LPIA conducted a Virtual Caucus, ensuring the greatest possible participation and inclusion for Libertarians across the state. The LPIA, in the tradition of the Iowa Caucuses, held a Presidential Straw Poll to signal registered Libertarians preference for our Presidential nomination.

About Jacob Hornberger, from his website:

Forty years ago, when he was a young trial lawyer in his hometown of Laredo, Texas, Jacob Hornberger discovered the libertarian philosophy. The discovery changed the course of his life.

Jacob is founder and president of The Future of Freedom Foundation a non-profit educational foundation whose mission is to present the principled case for the libertarian philosophy (and which, as a non-profit foundation, does not endorse his candidacy or any other candidacy).

On November 2, 2019, Jacob announced his candidacy for the 2020 Libertarian Party nomination at the South Carolina state convention.

Iowa state delegates will select our national delegation at the 2020 LPIA State Convention and Presidential Forum at Grand View University in Des Moines, Iowa, on February 29th. These delegates, while not bound to these results, will give thoughtful consideration of these results. The candidates in attendance of the Presidential Forum will discuss the issues that Iowa Libertarians hold dear. Jacob Hornberger, Iowa Caucus winner, will be a participant along with nine other candidates, click for information on Forum and Convention

Jerome Segal announces run for president under the Bread and Roses Party banner

Jerome Segal (source: SegalforSenate.org)

Rachel Chason reports in the Washington Post that a longtime progressive political activist and anti-war crusader Jerome Segal is running for president underneath the banner of his self-created Bread and Roses Party, recognized through certification by the state of Maryland in January 2019. The party’s name pays homage to a deadly 1912 strike of textile workers in Lawrence, Massachusetts of the same name. Chason writes in her August 28th, 2019 article “Jerome Segal, of Maryland socialist Bread and Roses Party, to run for president,”:

Jerome Segal, a philosopher and progressive activist, announced Wednesday that he is running for president as the nominee of a party he created — the socialist Bread and Roses party, which Maryland certified this year.

That means Segal, a 75-year-old Silver Spring resident, will appear on the Maryland ballot for the 2020 election. He and his nascent party are trying to qualify for the ballot in other states, he said.

Segal was part of a Jewish delegation that met with leaders of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, including Yasser Arafat, in 1987. Segal, the founder of the 5,000 member strong (a figure that includes over 400 rabbis) Jewish Peace Lobby has written books relating to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, such as Negotiating Jerusalem and Creating the Palestinian State. Another notable book of Segal’s is a collection of philosophical essays dealing with his perception on the economy and moral psychology. Segal challenged Ben Cardin in the 2018 Democratic U.S. Senate primary in Maryland, coming in third place behind Chelsea Manning with 20,027 votes, or 3.55% of the vote.

Segal sees a vision of his Bread and Roses Party becoming a 50-state party on his party’s website, which outlines a general overview of his political platform:

“… Bread and Roses is “socialistic” in its ideals, open to New Socialists and Non-Socialist alike. We use these terms “socialistic” and “New Socialists” to communicate both that the goals of socialism are central to our outlook, but also that we have new ideas with respect to public policy, that we are not wedded to big Government, and that we seek to develop a new political culture that is experimental and modest rather than dogmatic with respect to predictions of actual consequences of any effort to build a better world. We are not clairvoyant. We believe in keeping ones eye on ultimate goals and values, and being a society that learns, even from failure.

…. Further, “Roses” is central to our outlook. Roses means different things to different people. Clearly, it means beauty, both in the urban and natural environment, a society With Beauty For All. More fundamentally, in saying “And Roses too” the women strikers in Lawrence were saying, “We are not just laborers, with basic needs for bread. We are also complex human beings, with complex needs for lives of meaning and richness.” We agree. We believe that Renaissance is in America’s future. “

Segal’s party delivered over 15,000 signatures in August 2018 to the Maryland Secretary of State. Securing ballot access has often been a challenge for third party activists, particularly those creating new parties, as ballot access laws in America are designed the keep the duopoly in power.
