The Bleeding Heartland is discussing the Cooper campaign's 10% strategy of obtaining 2% of the vote in the 2010 election and in 2012 try to have our candidates receive 10% of the vote forcing the major parties to steal our issues. 

The Libertarian Party of Iowa convened on April 24 to nominate several candidates for statewide offices. The Libertarian candidate for governor is Eric Cooper, a neuroscience expert in the Iowa State University Psychology department. In his speech to the delegates, Cooper said frankly that the Libertarian Party had not been effective in the past. He laid out a "10 percent strategy" for Libertarians to "get everything we want without ever winning an election."
