Well we didn’t get our goal of 5% of the vote. (1%) But we didn’t start talking about the possibility of being recognized as a party with the same status as the Controllers one-party-acting-as-one by getting 5 % until the lase couple of days before the election.
But I’m not unhappy with the vote we did get. Why am I not unhappy? I happen to have been at one of the first gathering of people interested in a freedom party in LA in 1971 and the founders of the Libertarian explained to us that we would not be recognized overnight. The Libertarian plan (at that time) was a 200 year plan. I think we are making better progress than that. . . EDITOR
