1500TH POST: Annual Convention proves that taxpayers should not have to pay for party politics! Plus a recap of Allen County and Indiana Conventions.

This is going to be a wonderful post for our fifteen hundredth! It has been my pleasure to serve you and on occasion have y'all to read my ranting on the state of politics and social concern around Fort Wayne and Allen County and abroad for the last two and a half years and the rest of the Officers pounding it across the electronic super highway for the last six years or longer.

This year The LP of Indiana [Website][Facebook][Twitter][YouTube][FreeHoosiers] and LP of Allen County proved that not only can we have a contentious convention, with not one but two contested federal nomination fights but that we can do so with mutual respect of all parties and without the taxpayer footing the bill for a political party to make a decision! The Libertarian Party in every effect had not just a Convention but an actual Primary election, and you the taxpayer were not charged one red cent or green backed bill, unless you chose to participate in the process. It is time to take a stand and make the Republicans and Democrats do the same across the Hoosier State! You can start by demanding an open primary or no primary at all! You the voter sets the agenda contrary to any cynicism that develops on which ever isle in the marketplace of ideas.

Let's start with the State Convention, going on in Indy as I am writing this, the results so far as I have been told in communiques between members are subject to revision (*name = final result) with official results but are as follows:
