LP Monday Message: 20 Obama problems, 20 Libertarian solutions

April 25, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

We're a little over halfway through President Obama's term, and I wanted to send a reminder of the "top ten disasters" from his first year, plus ten newer problems, and how Libertarians would avoid or solve these problems.

LNC Board Meeting - Alexandria, VA, April 16-17

The Libertarian National Committee met in Alexandria, Virginia this past weekend. The agenda inculded establishing a budget for fiscal year 2011, planning for 2012, and discussing ideas to grow the party.

They also discussed funding for ballot access measures throughout the country.

I talked with a handful of board members who were all very pleasant and excited about welcoming me aboard.

I spoke of moving the party forward in a unconventional way, using video imagery that's professional, cool, and something the two old parties aren't doing.

LNC members see Atlas Shrugged movie

Atlas Shrugged, the movie, was released last Friday, April 15. A group of LNC members and staff went to see the opening of the movie last Friday in Washington, D.C.

The response seemed fairly positive. LNC Chairman Mark Hinkle had previously made the following comments after seeing an early screening of the film:

For Immediate Release

Libertarians speak against Obama's War on Poker

WASHINGTON - Following the Obama administration Justice Department's April 15 shutdown of three online poker sites and indictment of their executives, Libertarian Party Chair Mark Hinkle said, "The Obama administration has just trampled on the rights of millions of Americans."

Hinkle continued, "This is also a scary reminder of President Obama's vision of a government with the power to shut down websites it doesn't like, before a trial has even started.

"Even worse, shutting down this peaceful, honest commerce further weakens our economy.

LP Monday Message: Tax Day Condolences

April 18, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Today is Tax Day.

Rather than procrastinate by filing my taxes at the last minute, I filed for my extension several days ago.

I find the whole process of tracking, organizing and reporting tax information to be such an unpleasant task. It's not just the labor that goes into it, but the knowledge that the government uses financial levers to manipulate my behavior and complicate my life, as well as take my resources and squander them on wars and government programs that should not exist.
