From a previous IPR thread, posted today:
While I am certain that Mr. George is . . . to put it kindly a lightweight libertarian in terms of his dedication to the NAP, I say, run.
I will NOT be running; the main reason being that the LPF Platform on education is statist in that it calls for “community decision making” in education. My position is complete separation of education and state, and that education belongs in the free market, where each and every individual who participates in market activity does so without state, or even “community” control.
LaBianca went on to criticize gubernatorial candidate and former Libertarian Party of Florida chairman Adrian Wyllie in his comments:
LOL! Adrian Wyllie characterizes himself as a “a traditional Libertarian”.
I suggest that if Mr. Wyllie is true to those words, he’ll speak to and address as strongly, “leftist” concerns, as he does for “Tea Party” concerns…
…I cannot run under a statist LPF Platform. The truth is, Mr. Wyllie, who calls for community control of education is FAR more commensurate with these statist positions than I am.
Mr. Wyllie does in fact, represent the LPF platform plank on education. I however, represent the “traditional” libertarian position of complete separation of education and state, which it seems quite clear to me, is no longer the position of the LPF.
IPR reported on LaBianca’s entry in the Libertarian Party of Florida’s gubernatorial nomination race in an August 25th article.
