"In 1982, Joe ran for the California Senate as a Libertarian Party candidate. That race is still viewed by many today as a landmark, notable for the high quality of campaigning; the high quality of the issue papers ("wonderful papers on the drug war, denationalization of defense, and immigration, really wonderful papers," Joe says, written by the brilliant libertarian scholar Jeff Hummel); and most of all, a deep commitment to uncompromising, hardcore libertarian principle."
