The Plano Balloon Festival. With approximately 100,000+ people expected to attend the event this mid-term election year, it is an excellent opportunity to capitalize on the current political climate and reach out to discontented Collin County voters.
In an effort to re-establish many of the links to the broader libertarain movement that some of our older web sites used to contain, I've contacted many leaders to ask if we can link to their organization's web site. The latest addition to www.lp.org/liberty-links is the Ludwig von Mises Institute (www.mises.org).
Rebecca Sink Burris is a member of the Libertarian National Committee and our 2010 candidate for U.S. Senate in Indiana. Today the Indianapolis Star writes about her:
In November, Sink-Burris, 58, will square off against Republican political veteran Dan Coats and Democratic U.S. Rep. Brad Ellsworth, two major party heavyweights who Sink-Burris says represent more of the same -- and a major problem -- in politics.
It's hard to celebrate Labor Day when unemployment is 9.6 percent.
Government interference is the single biggest cause of unemployment. Minimum wage laws, OSHA, ADA, etc., etc., make it difficult both to hire and to fire workers. (And when it's difficult to fire workers, it's much less likely that they will be hired in the first place.) To reduce unemployment, we need to start repealing laws!
Libertarian candidate Barry Hess, running for Arizona governor (against incumbent Jan Brewer), participated in a four-way televised candidate debate on September 2. Click here to watch the debate video.
According to New York LP chair Mark Axinn, all six Libertarians running for statewide office succeeded in their petitioning to get on the November ballot. New York voters will have Libertarian options for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, both U.S. Senate seats, Attorney General, and Comptroller.
Several other Libertarian congressional and state legislative candidates also made it on the ballot.
Originally the message of the Tea Party seemed clear “Less taxes and spending”.
Simple enough, Right? Somehow they have gotten distracted. Very, very distracted. I know that all Tea Parties and their participants are different, so it is not fair for me to throw them all under the bus.
So for those who are distracted; let me attempt to recapture your attention.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
