The most interesting candidate here, but not in a good way, is independent Nathan Larson, who served time in prison for threatening to kill President Barack Obama in 2009.

And the Libertarian Party of Virginia censured Nathan Larson, who sought the party's nomination in the 31st District. Among other things, Larson served prison time for threatening to kill former President Barack Obama in 2009 and advocated incestuous marriage, pedophilia and bestiality.

But his candidacy was disavowed by the Libertarian Party of Virginia earlier this year because of his extreme views, which include his support for legalizing child pornography and child marriage.

Independent candidate Nathan Larson had plenty of his own dissenting views on the district to offer as well, as he’s running on a controversial, Libertarian-style platform calling for the total privatization of a wide array of other government services.

Guzman would be the first Latina elected to the House of Delegates. But she’d have to fend off Lingamfelter as well as a left-field candidate: Nathan Larson, a libertarian who was disowned by his own party. Larson recently served 16 months in federal prison for threatening to kill the president.

I strongly suspect that if incestuous marriage had been legal and socially accepted, Ivanka would be the de jure, rather than merely de facto, First Lady.

In addition, as I noted in my statement with regard to keeping abortion legal, we need to rely somewhat on natural selection to get rid of parental characteristics that would tend to drive them to destroy their own offspring.

Legalization of marital rape sends an important message, which is that frigidity is not a behavior that a husband need tolerate from his wife.

Larson says he doesn't think he would molest his own daughter but isn't sure
- Blake, Tim (4 March 2017). "Have you heard of Nathan Larson? He's running for office in my home state of VA. He's a "red-pill libertarian" who thinks child porn should be legal, wants to abolish child protective services and thinks father/daughter incest is okay. He's also a felon who threatened Obama.

In some of my earlier works, I uncovered that the boundaries between right-wing libertarianism and other far-right movements, such as white nationalism, tend to be very thin. Want to know how thin? Read the article below about a “red-pill libertarian” running for VA House who wants to undo feminism, legalize marital rape, and allow fathers to marry their daughters or sell them to someone else in an arranged marriage, among other things. Did I mention he was arrested for sending a letter to the CIA of his intent to kill the US president?
