Recruiting volunteers with Craigslist

From our friendly neighborhood volunteer coordinator, Austin Petersen:

To supplement traditional recruitment through your local events, and to help with Ballot Access, I have been placing advertisements on the Web site Craigslist.org. Although it may not sound like a good place to look, you would be surprised at the return rate of people who reply to these ads. By writing highly charged political advertisements that cite specific issues that people care about in the subject lines, you can build your party by adding several new volunteers a week.

Border fences poor substitutes for immigration reform

Sub-Title: 

Illegal immigration a product of ineffective government policies

As the federal government scrambles to put up a costly border fence along the Mexico-US border, Libertarian Party spokesperson Andrew Davis is already calling it a "poor substitute for real immigration reform." 

"Illegal immigration is a huge problem in the United States that will only worsen if we continue to play games instead of getting serious about real reform," says Davis. "Border fences are expensive distractions, paid for by taxpayers, from addressing the causes of illegal immigration."

'We don't mind you shutting down'

Sub-Title: 

As Congress plays games, taxpayers get a break from big spending

While Republicans threaten a government shutdown over a fight with Democrats on offshore drilling, the Libertarian Party says such a dramatic step wouldn't be so bad.

"We don't mind Congress shutting down," says Andrew Davis, spokesperson for the Libertarian Party. "At least taxpayers will get a break from Congress' spending spree.  Anything that government does to decrease how active it is in passing new laws and spending taxpayer money is something the Libertarian Party fully supports."

Freedom going up in smoke

Sub-Title: 

Regulations would endanger health of liberty in the United States

Tobacco regulations that just passed the House "should carry a warning label about their dangerous effects on liberty," says Libertarian Party spokesperson Andrew Davis.

The bill, sponsored by California Democrat Rep. Henry Waxman, would give new powers to the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco ingredients and advertising, as well as the introduction of new products into the market.  The bill passed the House 326 to 102 after less than an hour of debate.
