long-expected-partyEditor’s note: The following reflections on the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC)  were penned in the 48 hours following the kickoff event for the Washington chapter of the RLC, held in Yakima January 27.  We  intended   to  incorporate this material into  the series we were publishing on the contrasting conventions that weekend in Olympia (The Roanoke Conference) and Yakima (where many from the liberty wing of the Republican party gathered, including significant members of the Washington state legislature). We have been working with this material for several months.   We were held back from completing that series by Something.
