Well, all I can say is I'm sorry you feel that way. Because I have been fair. And like everyone else here, I've been completely confused about your intentions on the matching funds for the last year. And I also think that I'm reasonably intelligent and reasonably literate, and that I would be able to tell what your intentions were if you had been clear about them.

You, on the other hand, continue to be unfair i your treatment of Gary and others, by referring to persons as the "thought police." I don't see Gary slapping the cuffs on you for thinking the way you do. A real libertarian can tell the difference between persuasion and force.

You may be right - I may be just blowing smoke. But I have a track record that shows that I help other candidates with my time and money when I believe in what they are doing.

You should have done the right thing on this issue regardless of whether it would result in my helping or not. And you didn't do the right thing. I'm not being the thought police; I'm merely voicing my opinion on libertarian principle.

Maybe you should back off on this idea that people "knew what my plans were all along"... because it is pretty damn clear that not many people understood your intentions.
