Darryl W. Perry (born February 7, 1978) is an American activist, author, radio host and politician. He was a Libertarian Presidential candidate in 2016, and former Chair of the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire. Perry is also running for Governor of New Hampshire as a Libertarian[1].

Early life[edit]

Daryl W. Perry was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, and the surrounding area, graduating from Hewitt-Trussville High School in 1996.[2]

Darryl attended Jefferson State Community College on a scholarship with the Speech Team (Forensics Team), and later on a Management Scholarship with WJSR-FM, the college radio station. Darryl was station manager from the summer of 1997 until he graduated in 1998.


Perry hosts the daily newscast FPPradioNews, the podcast Peace, Love, Liberty Radio, the weekly news podcast FPP Freedom Minute, and was a regular co-host on Free Talk Live. He is a co-founder of the New Hampshire Liberty Party, and was on the National Committee of the Boston Tea Party from 2008-2012, twice serving as chair. Perry later sought the 2016 Libertarian Party presidential nomination on a platform as the only "real" Libertarian running.[citation needed]

After the Libertarian Convention and the nomination of Gary Johnson, he voiced concerns over Johnson's vice presidential nominee Bill Weld, citing the failure of the Reform Party as evidence that The Libertarian Party needed a more consistent message and suggesting Will Coley or Larry Sharpe as more suitable running mates.[3] He confronted Weld before the nomination.[4] After the convention he announced a limited write-in campaign in 17 states.[5][6] He received either 5[7] or 3 votes overall.[8]

He did not run for reelection to the position of Chair of the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire at the State Convention in 2018, allowing Chip Spangler to become Chair.[9]

Political positions[edit]

Perry is considered a "hard-core" libertarian, who expressed dismay that Gary Johnson won the Libertarian's 2016 Presidential nomination.[10] He supports the decriminalization of recreational drugs, stating they "should be as legal as tomatoes."[10] He supports a non-interventionist foreign policy.[11] Perry has an anarcho-capitalist platform. On RT America he called the United States government "the world's biggest terrorist organization" and advocated abolishing the United States government.[12] During the 2016 Libertarian Party's Presidential debate he said that he did not believe in driver's licenses and that it was similar to "requiring a license to make toast in your own damn toaster" [13]
