[Mini-podcast] What was the 'Free Libertarian Party'?
What was the Free Libertarian Party of 1972, and what made it different from the Libertarian Party that was founded in 1971?
"In 1974, two years after the founding of the Free Libertarian Party, Mr. Tuccille ran for governor of New York. He hoped to win the 50,000 votes that would give the party a permanent place on the ballot, a first step toward becoming the third major political party in the United States..."
It turns out New York has some interesting political history that overlaps and even predates the Libertarian Party! Learning about the Free Libertarian Party was a warm welcome for a Libertarian nerd like me.
