LP Monday Message: Teleprompters!

January 31, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I hope you saw our video response to the State of the Union and Republicans last week. We got some feedback on that video, and it was overwhelmingly positive -- positive that we need a teleprompter.

I'm serious -- we actually do need a teleprompter. We discovered that it's really difficult to give video presentations without one.

LP Monday Message: It's time to "YouCut" body scanners

January 24, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

We've heard Republican members of Congress repeatedly claim that they are going to cut federal spending. Yeah, right.

I want to suggest a way you can help hold them accountable. The new House majority leader, Eric Cantor, has created a website called "YouCut" where people can suggest ways to cut spending.

Libertarian candidate Rex Bell got historic percentage in Indiana

In November 2010, Rex Bell ran for Indiana state representative and got 20.78%, against both a Republican and a Democrat. According to Ballot Access News, that is the first time in 85 years that any party candidate (other than a Republican or Democrat) has gotten more than 20% for Indiana legislature, running against both a Republican and a Democrat.

Congratulations to Rex Bell and the Indiana LP.

LP Monday Message: Republicans are about to double-cross Tea Partiers

January 17, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. MLK suffered serious personal risk to fight against government violations of the rights of minorities. I'm glad we remember him each year.

Although it's a day off for many people, we're hard at work at LP Headquarters today. We've spent the weekend working on some internal computer upgrades, and hopefully we can complete that project today.

We also have a new video on our home page for you.
