Vote: Should the Libertarian Party list presidential candidates at its web site?

Dear fellow Libertarians,

Members of the Libertarian National Committee have been debating whether or not to list presidential candidates at our web site, and if we do, whether to qualify those who are posted.

There are good arguments for all sides.

Examples of reasons for listing Libertarian presidential candidates:

Libertarian Presidential Candidate RJ Harris in the News

The campaign of RJ Harris, Libertarian candidate for president, has been getting news coverage, including in the Oklahoman, the largest newspapers in his home state.

"R.J. Harris is running as a Libertarian Party candidate, who also is working on a signature-gathering drive to get the Libertarian Party recognized as a political party in Oklahoma." (Note: Libertarians in Oklahoma have gathered over 31,000 signatures so far of the 51,739 required).

LP Monday Message: Cruelest Cuts in Government Spending - the Democrat and Republican Scare Tactic

Dear Friend of Liberty,

When government spending cuts come up in conversation, Big Government Democratic and Republican Politicians break out the scare tactics. They threaten to cut the services that voters care about most. Police and fire protection, schools, and road repairs are some of their tried-and-true favorites.

Big Government Democrats and Republicans try to scare voters into believing that these are the only areas of government that can be cut. “Give us your tax dollars, or granny dies.”

LP Monday Message: Building & 40th anniversary celebration

November 28, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Please contribute to our building fund.

I want to thank all 328 donors who have given or pledged a total of $201,219. Of that total, $111,644 has been collected and $89,575 is in the form of pledges to be collected later.

At this point, we have not committed to a specific property to purchase, or too a specific time to make a purchase. We plan to continue raising funds so we'll have more for a down payment.

LP Monday Message: Building in jeopardy

November 21, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I am serious when I tell you the LNC is on the verge of pulling the plug on the office we're looking at.

I hope to raise $30,000 more as soon as possible, just to help convince the rest of the LNC it is worth going forward.

I hope 100 of you will donate another $300 each as soon as possible.
