At the 2010 National Libertarian Party Convention in St. Louis, I was returned (with your help!) to the LNC as an At-Large member. Since I am YOUR representative, please feel free to contact me with your issues.
This, my first contribution to the LP blog, will be short and to the point. In St. Louis we elected a strong LNC, with Libertarians representing several major philosophical and strategic perspectives. The one thing we all agree upon, I believe, is that we want our party to grow and our ideas to gain wider acceptance among the American electorate. We have many fine candidates for public office this year, including 17 – so far – for U.S.
As we kick off a new LNC term, let me first take a moment to say thank you for the opportunity to serve the party as LNC Secretary.Opportunities abound for us in the modern political landscape, and I look forward to working with you to find ways to engage in real politics to reduce the size of government.
Recently, Vice Chair Mark Rutherford appeared on News Radio KFAB's Tom Becka Show to discuss the future of the Libertarian Party. They touched on a variety of topics ranging from ballot access to the BP oil spill.
With much of the electorate now embracing their contempt for big government and oppressive regulation, members of the Texas Libertarian Party believe that they are finally getting a long-overdue measure of respect as they prepare to choose their nominees for governor and other statewide offices.
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.
