    As far as the teaparty is concerned. I find it odd that they insist they are just practicing the second amendment and not trying to intimidate anyone when they stand outside of one of the presidents town halls and other democrat events openly toting guns. Nice double standard.

The Black Panthers are a racist group with no political party.. now that libertarians have made it clear they want to amend the civil rights act the kkk has a party they can check off. It is also taking advantage of the presidents skin color.
    For the love of ****, can you stay on target? This isn't a "bash libertarians" thread, go make your own damned thread about that if you want. Libertarian political philosophy has nothing to do with the actions of the Black Panthers in this case. I haven't seen the LP going around intimidating voters either, so stop with your biased, bigoted agenda against Libertarians and comment on the damned thread topic. No one said Obama won because of the Black Panthers, people have said what the Black Panthers had done was clearly voter intimidation and there should have been investigation and prosecution for these crimes as voter intimidation is something that we cannot allow stand.

    Well they could have had guns holstered and it would have been just as intimidating if not more so then a stick. Wouldn't it? Of course that is all hypothetical and I voted yes on the poll.

    Depends on the state, stature and nature of the reasoning, I'm pretty sure if your intent is to intimidate others, you could be arrested for menacing among other felonies.


    Now any proof that this happened or are you all just talking out your waste ejection ports as usual?

    Look.. if I was a black I would be scared of the libertarians getting in office.

    EDIT: In other words I sympathise with the black panthers being sick of white supremacy.

    The black panther party was actually created in self defense of black people. This was a misguided attempt at making sure that AA were not, themselves, intimidated at the polls.

    If precedent from this instance stood, then no. But dollars to donuts says that if it were a "white" group that did the exact same actions, there would have been a hooting and a hollaring we've never heard before and most likely an actual investigation.
