Social Media Updates

The Libertarian Party has a new addition to our social networking sphere.  In order to allow members to submit their own photos of LP meetups, meetings, and other events, we decided to use the popular photo sharing site Flickr.  Please feel free to view our Flickr page ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/lpnational ), and submit photos to lpnflickr@yahoo.com (only submit photos that you own).  Be sure to mention where the picture was taken, names of people in the photo, and any other pertinent information.  We are looking forward to seeing your photos!

Dear Friend of Liberty,

First, I wanted to send a big thank you to the new Monthly Pledgers who signed up for recurring monthly donations online.

We have also conducted online polls on the following topics recently:

LP Mentioned on Judge Napolitano's Freedom Watch

Austin Petersen, our former Director of Outreach, and young libertarian Caitlyn Korb discuss the current trends of new media and how it is affecting libertarian politics.  Korb mentions the Libertarian Party, saying, "We've got so much access to knowledge and everybody I know doesn't believe that there is anybody out there can make a better decision for their life than themselves and I think that is where the Libertarian Party really is able to effectively engage this generation."

LP Monday Message: Democrats, Republicans want more troops in Afghanistan

October 12, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I am disappointed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to Barack Obama. That prize should go to individuals who end wars and make peace, not those who make war.

President Obama has utterly failed to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has increased American military involvement in Afghanistan, and appears ready to escalate that war even further.

LNC interns attend school choice rally

On September 30, 2009, several Libertarian Party interns went to the "Save
School Choice Rally" at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.  The rally
was organized to show support for the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship
Program, a voucher program for residents of the District of Columbia.  If

children, allowing them to remove their children from the D.C. public
school system and send them to a school of their choice. However, in

LP Monday Message: LNC members are on the trail

October 5, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I've been serving as the LP's Executive Director for about ten weeks now. While I do spend some time on visible things like blog postings or writing email broadcasts like this one, I've also spent a lot of my time on unseen things like database improvement and fundraising. I think our staff is making good progress in these areas, and I will have specific numbers to report in the near future.

LNC members on the trail

The following is a partial calendar of upcoming speaking engagements and other activities of members of the Libertarian National Committee (LNC).

LNC members are listed here. You may contact them directly for more information.

Week of October 5-9, time and date to be determined
Stewart Flood may testify at an FCC hearing "against the need for government involvement in broadband expansion and against the need for a 'diversity czar' and a 'fairness doctrine.'"

LP Monday Message: Reagan not serious about cutting government, says Redpath

September 28, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

During the 2008 primary, many Republican presidential candidates claimed to be like former President Ronald Reagan. This was apparently intended to mean that they supported small government. I recently listened again to this speech promoting free enterprise, which Ronald Reagan gave in 1977 (before he was elected president).
