Libertarians note anniversary of bad Kelo decision
WASHINGTON - Tomorrow, June 23, marks the fifth anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Kelo v. New London decision. Today the Libertarian Party published the following open letter:
We, the state chairs of the Libertarian Party, and members of the Libertarian National Committee (LNC), wish to call attention to the fifth anniversary of the wrongful Kelo v. New London decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Before getting to more serious issues, I'm asking you to take another quick poll on slogans. We picked the top two from our primary poll, and added a new third choice. (Two choices on the ballot just aren't enough!)
Tennessee Report writes about Heather Scott, who is running for the Tennessee House of Representatives:
Heather Scott is a Libertarian, but she is running as an independent.
From her eight years as a member of the Wilson County Commission, Scott says she’s seen how programs come down from the state and federal government that may or may not be right for a particular county, yet local governments have to enact them and cover the costs that come with them.
Alex Snitker, Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senator in Florida, was excluded from a candidate event held by the Florida Press Association on June 17. Snitker attended the event and spoke against the decision to exclude him. WTSP covered Snitker's comments:
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.
