In what many consider an early Christmas present to residents of Omaha, Judge Peter Bataillion ruled on Thursday the petition effort that gained nearly 29,000 signatures in a 30-day period was done in accordance with Nebraska law and may now move forward with a Mayoral recall election.

Congressman Ron Paul praises the Libertarian Party

In a recent interview with ‘The Quarterly Review,’ Ron Paul had kind words to say about the role of minor parties in American politics.

When asked about his run as the Libertarian Presidential candidate in 1988, he responded, “Third parties can serve a useful educational function. I believe the Libertarian Party has done a great service in promoting the libertarian philosophy, and I continue to have many friends and supporters in the Libertarian Party as well as the Constitution Party. I even have some friends in the Green Party.”
