Elinor Swanson, Libertarian candidate for US Representative from Montana, lives by the motto, “Don’t hurt people and don’t take their stuff.”
I first met Elinor Swanson at Depot Park in Kalispell, Montana during the “Rally for Our Rights” event organized by a few local Montana high school students. The thing that impressed me immediately about Elinor was that she drove 8 hours from Billings to Kalispell to attend the rally; not because she was the featured speaker, but because she believes strongly in the Second Amendment. In fact, Elinor only spoke for about 6 minutes during the rally. I have included her presentation at Depot Park below.
I’m uncertain about the future of the Libertarian Party; meaning I’m not sure how long that the establishment can continue to push the narrative that the two main political ideologies currently in place is our only solution. I am certain about one thing, however, when the core values of the Libertarian platform finally break through to the mainstream population, Elinor Swanson will be front and center leading the charge.
