and it wasn't Liz Warren, it was little know person, Dan Fishman.
I would also like to Clarify the Massachusetts GOP does indeed exist.
Dan Fishman was running as a Libertarian in the Massachusetts 6th, he got 16,668 votes, or 4.43%, not to big of a deal, except the Race was decided by .93%, or just about 3,200 votes. Now the entire state GOP (and their talking heads) are demonizing Dan Fishman for running for office as a "spoiler".

Do you think such title is warrented for a 3rd Party Canidate that gets a portion of the vote larger than the margin between the top 2 finishers?

1 person singlehandedly angered the Entire Massachusetts GOP .




My god. You mean there is an actual GOP party in Mass. From the way the liberals talk I would never have thought that there was such an animal. Geeez you learn something every day.

The entire GOP can just suck it.............up and move on because after the way they treated Ron Paul when he was only delivering a conservative libertarian message, conservative libertarians don't owe them SQUAT. They intentionally try to spoil the conservative message of smaller government when it comes to the US military policing the globe, so if in the process their election chances get spoiled......well serves them right.

They want to do all this yackety yack and talking about smaller government and conservatism, but when a conservative talks about smaller government across the board, they break out the fangs and claws and pitchforks. So if they get their hopes spoiled by messengers with the same conservative message that they so mistreated within their own party, then I say they had it coming.
