Courting McDaniel

The Mississippi Libertarian Party [MSLP] has been trying to recruit Chris McDaniel for years. Yet even though Republicans are jumping ship after Trump’s nomination, there is still no word from Chris McDaniel that he is considering joining the Libertarian Party [LP].

It is a valuable lesson to pass on to the next generation and every generation after that. The limit to your achievement is your imagination and your willingness to work towards your dreams. This is something that cannot be said enough.
