LP Monday Message: Flyer for Tea Parties and Tax Protests

April 5, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

The April 15 tax filing deadline is right around the corner (a week from Thursday), and along with it, lots of tax day protests and Tea Party protests. In addition to other groups' events, your local Libertarian Party affiliate may have protest plans for that day.

I hope you are able to attend some of these protests in your area to help promote the Libertarian Party. We've prepared a simple flyer that you can download and print to hand out at these events. It's got the World's Smallest Political Quiz, basic information on the Libertarian Party, and a place to sign up.

This flyer is general enough to be used at almost any event.

We've heard lots of debate in the press about whether Tea Party protesters are Libertarians, Republicans, independents, Democrats, etc. The reality is, there's a variety of people at these protests. I think many of them are libertarians, and I want to recruit them to our party! One great tool the LP has used for years is the World's Smallest Political Quiz kits as described here. It's not too late to get one of these kits!

I plan to bring the flyers and a quiz chart to the Tea Party tax day protest in Washington, DC.

I'll be trying to get the press to notice our chart showing how many of the Tea Party protesters are libertarian. It may be difficult to get noticed at the huge protest in DC, but hopefully at smaller protests around the country, if you show up and get people to take the quiz and post their results, the local press will notice.

Download the "Take a Look" flyer.

Sincerely,

Wes Benedict
Executive Director
Libertarian National Committee
