Mitchell J. Moore, A Lawyer & A Rat-Man
In His Own Wurds: Running his mouth via e-mail
The Libertarian Party
Libertarians believe that people must be left to live their own lives, must be responsible for their own actions and must not harm others.
The essential function of government is to defend its citizens against force and fraud. The Democratic and Republican parties have gone far beyond these limits; they have saddled us with big government, high taxes and runinous budget deficits.
Let's make government do its real job -- Protect the rights of its citizens, keep our streets safe and keep our country defended!

You certainly do need to be a lawyer to practice law in Missouri, which is among the AG's duties. Riddle me this, do you have to be a human being to run for office? Can we run our pets? --Mitch Moore -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= My re-considered response of Feb. 17, 1996 to LawyerMore: >> Don't need to have a lawyer to run for that position.

Nonsense. Alfred Adask, editor of The Anti-Shyster, ran on the LP ticket for Texas Supreme Court judge. He wasn't a lawyer. As it is, if a person wants to run bad enough, they could probably find a way to run. The recent anti-term limits judgement certainly cut through a state's right to limit candidates. It can be used against the government. Such a person would probably be the last one to enforce the unConstitutional "Unauthorized Practice of Law" rules beloved by the legal guild. > >Riddle me this, do you have to be a human being to run for office? >Can we run our pets? Why not? I once claimed two cats, two geese and five ducks as dependents on a W-4 form, back when I filed 'em. The IRS was pissed, but they ended up having to live with it after a long piss-fight. Martin Lindstedt -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- LawyerMore's response of Feb. 17, 1996: To Martin: Cute. Beyond being cute, the point is that if the LP wants to be taken seriously as an alternative to the Republicrats then we have to act serious. Cute has its place, humor has its place. The trick is to be able to control it for the maximum positive effect. Mitch> >

A notarized statement would be the minimum requirement. Were Martin's "proxies" nonexistent? Well DUHHHHHHH! MitchComment: In order to pretend that my proxies were non-existent, LawyerMore got to pretend that he "might" allow them if only they were notarized. This of course, is directly contrary to how he voted at the proxy fight at the general membership Platform Convention of Sept. 17, 1996 and his voting to do away with the rights of proxies altogether at the May 25, 1996 via "Constitution."
The need for all these quasi-rationalizations is to then accuse myself of being as big a liar as he is.
All this nonsense happened after I lost the general election, and the Pud-Pullers were relieved. It was in reaction to a series of lies spread by one Thomas Knapp, who runs a vanity page supposedly concerned with freedom. Knapp wanted to accuse me of engaging in proxy fraud real bad at the time.
