Idaho's Labrador, Heileson meeting with libertarian group Saturday night in Boise

Idahoans for Liberty, the group led by former Libertarian turned Republican Ryan Davidson, is hosting the two congressional candidates at Fuddruckers in Boise at 6:30 p.m. The restaurant is near the Edwards theater complex at 1666 S. Entertainment Ave.

First District GOP Rep. Raul Labrador and 2nd District GOP challenger Chick Heileson are scheduled to begin speaking at 7:15 p.m., after dinner and socializing.

Labrador opponent in the May 15 primary is Reed McCandless of Moscow. Heileson is in a rematch with 2nd District GOP Rep. Mike Simpson. Davidson is working on the Heileson campaign and on behalf of Ron Paul's presidential bid.

Then they ain't, they're just more stinkin' fake republicans...

As distinguished from another republican?

It's not at all clear what the distinction is that you're making between Labrador, Heileson and other Republicans.

There is an absurd tendency these days to consider libertarian members of the Republican party as something other than republicans. By that standard, of course, Barry Goldwater would not have been a Republican, and Ronald Reagan would have been questionable.

In Fairness

I do think Mr. Popkey was speaking about Davidson and not the candidates themselves. Though, it does seem to imply that they are libertarians just because a libertarian-minded Republican is associated with them. In that same vein, Simpson could be labeled a Democrat-minded Republican with his support from the leadership (and former leadership) within the Democratic party throughout the state.

No, it has to do with the Paul campaign's insane bloodlost *PIGS

He'll die before they ever succeed anyway. Sic semper old f@rts!

Correction Required

Dan, please correct your lead. As a card carrying, dues paying member of the US Libertarian Party and the Idaho Libertarian Party, I can tell you that none of these people listed in your piece are Libertarians. If this is your mistake, you need to correct it. If you were misled, then you might want to speak to the source and avoid using information from them in the future.

I said the group is 'libertarian,' not the Libertarian Party

I wrote it that way, no mistake. The "libertarian' way of thinking, which Mr. Davidson and his group advance, is not copyrighted by the Libertarian Party of Idaho or the US.

!

How am I finding myself in agreement with Dan on this? I better get my pulse checked, not sure if I'm still alive .....

Wrong

Small "l" libertarian. Perfectly correct. We all don't belong to the party And, FO, we are not just fake Republicans.

No immoral acts with the librarians.

Unless they agree.

Another Clarification

Ryan Davidson is not working for the Heileson campaign. If he is supporting him then that is another matter. Lots of people support candidates, including yourself Mr. Popkey, who are not considered as working for them. I think you would find an issue with someone saying that you are working on the LeFevour campaign just because you support her. There are people who support Mitt Romney working on the Heileson campaign and people who support Ron Paul and people who support Rick Santorum working on the Heileson campaign. Perhaps you were not aware of this.

It's a political snakeball but only one of 'em gets pregnant.

Mr. Davidson told me he was working for the Heileson campaign

We discussed this last week.

Dan Popkey

Fair Enough

Probably just a matter of semantics here in regards to "working for." There are many people volunteering to help Heileson get elected and in a sense working for him to get elected. I do know Davidson is not a paid campaign staffer.

The way they all work for each other...

is bordering on political incest.

Tell me when they work for themselves or focus on one candidate and I'll call them useful.

This nonsense won't help anybody. It just robs them all of focus and work ethic.

political incest

and how is that different from how all the GOP party bigwhigs help each other? Otter, the GOP officers, high state office holders, big businesses like Melaleuca, Micron, Simplot, etc?

They are the very definition of party insiders all trading legislative favors for contributions, sharing campaign staff & volunteers.

Lets face it, politics is a who do you know game that is hard to break into. Kudos to them for trying.

It's your party, you can cry if you want to?

By the way, you are so naive my modem smells

You ARE possibly related to what was her name the TG who ran last time?

It wasn't that, it was just she was a little weird.

I know than two TGs son.

So some of the Democrats might be meeting with a socialist group sometime before the elections?

Perfectly fine.
