Libertarians call federal worker pay gap 'appalling'

WASHINGTON - Recent data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis show that federal government workers get compensation, on average, more than twice as high as private-sector workers. That gap has expanded dramatically over the last decade. Libertarian Party Chair Mark Hinkle released the following statement today:

"The numbers are appalling. In 2009, the average private-sector worker received $61,051 in total compensation, but the average federal government worker received $123,049. There is no excuse for this enormous, and growing, compensation gap.

Colorado Libertarian primary results

The Libertarian Party had contested statewide primary elections in Colorado yesterday, for both governor and U.S. Senator. According to ballot access expert Richard Winger, "This was the first time Colorado had provided a statewide primary for any party, other than the Democratic and Republican Parties, since 1914 and 1916, years in which the Progressive (“Bull Moose”) Party had Colorado primaries."

Libertarian candidate Jack Warner polling 7% in Kansas

Contrary to the conventional wisdom expressed in the media, Warner polls higher among Democrats than Republicans, and higher among liberals than conservatives.

Texas LP chair gives his take on the tea party

Pat Dixon, chair of the Libertarian Party of Texas, had an op-ed published on August 10 in the Austin American-Statesman. Dixon comments:

As far back as February 2007, discussions on the Libertarian Party of Illinois' email list mentioned a modern-day Boston Tea Party. In late 2008, the party decided to hold a tax protest called the Chicago Tea Party and scheduled it for tax day, April 15, 2009. In January 2009, they began to promote the event through Meetup groups, Facebook and elsewhere.
