Brought into the world in White Plains, New York, Raimondo moved with his family to Yorktown Heights, New York when he was youthful. Raimondo depicted himself as a “terrible child”; to prevent himself from this way he went through one year at a Jesuit-run school in upstate New York.
Around this time he looked into Ayn Rand’s way of thinking of Objectivism. Later he joined Young Americans for Freedom. During the 1970s, he got dynamic in the Libertarian Party. He “joined the gathering in 1974, and was dynamic in Roger MacBride’s 1976 official mission, the LP’s subsequent White House bid.” He helped to establish (alongside Eric Garris) the “Extremist Caucus”, which convinced the Libertarian Party to help gay rights. It carried them to the consideration of the libertarian scholar Murray Rothbard. He went to the protection of the White Night riots, which followed homicide conviction of Dan White (for the passings of San Francisco chief Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone).
In 1983, after a split in the Libertarian Party, Raimondo left the gathering and endeavored to sort out a libertarian group in the Republican Party known as the Libertarian Republican Organizing Committee. After 1989, Raimondo again started working with Rothbard in the counter war, paleoconservative John Randolph Club, a piece of the Rockford Institute.
In 1980, Raimondo pursued public position unexpectedly. Running as a Libertarian contender for the sixteenth locale seat in the California State Assembly, Raimondo got 4,730 votes or 7.7% of the vote. In 1982, Raimondo ran for California’s fifth area seat in the United States House of Representatives as a Libertarian, against Democratic officeholder Phillip Burton and Republican challenger Milton Marks. He got 14.2% of the vote.
In the 1996 U.S. legislative races, Raimondo ran as a Republican up-and-comer in California’s eighth area against Nancy Pelosi. While he advocated moderate and libertarian causes all in all, the fundamental accentuation of his mission was his resistance to the sending of U.S. troops in the Balkans and, specifically, Pelosi’s vote to that effect. Raimondo got 25,739 votes for 12.39 percent of the vote while Pelosi got 84.34 percent.
During the 1992, 1996, and 2000 official races, Raimondo upheld the missions of Pat Buchanan, both as a Republican and in the Reform Party. As he was an out gay man, his help of the social moderate Buchanan pulled in impressive attention. The thought he “needs to gather us all together and send us to inhumane imprisonments is only a lot of poo. It’s completely false and a smear. He invites gay specialists in his mission. He doesn’t feel that homosexuality is such incredible a thing. Be that as it may, I needn’t bother with his endorsement. For what reason does any gay individual need anybody’s benediction?”
In 1994, Raimondo was the San Francisco facilitator for the “Spare our State” Proposition 187, which would have banished citizen subsidizing of non-crisis administrations to foreigners in California. The measure was passed by California electors, however was later remained by a government court
