The Tea Party's Over fundraising letter

"Many people give Libertarians, along with Congressman Ron Paul, credit for starting the Tea Party movement. I believe the first modern Tea Party was in Austin, Texas on December 16, 2007. I was there."

That's in the opening of a recent fundraising letter the Libertarian Party sent to our donors. That letter generated a lot of feedback--some of it positive, some negative.

People reported finding the content particularly informative for a fundraising letter. Many thanked us for writing it as well as asked for permission to forward the letter to friends.

I've now posted it online to make sharing it more convenient. Feel free to send people here to click on the envelope above to read the letter in its entirety.

Below is a picture of me at the Texas State Capitol at the start of the event just to prove I was there ;-)
