[April 7 update: Boortz will not be speaking at the LP Convention.]
The Convention Committee has extended the Early Bird pricing until April 12. Part of this is due to confusion and mixed messages over which speakers are scheduled for when. Our speaker lineup continues to evolve and is always subject to change. One recent change is that Neal Boortz has been moved from the Sunday evening banquet dinner speaker position. We do expect Mr. Boortz to speak in a different time slot.
Have you ever wondered who else shares your Libertarian principles, especially those in the media spotlight? Look here for a list of famous individuals, categorized by their field of work, who are known supporters of the libertarian philosophy.
Libertarian Party Chairman William Redpath is scheduled to appear on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart. Mr. Redpath discusses the 2010 census. The appearance is currently scheduled to air on Thursday, April 1 at 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time, but that is subject to change.

For Immediate Release
Libertarians: Obama should end Afghanistan War
WASHINGTON - After President Barack Obama made a surprise visit to Afghanistan over the weekend, Libertarian Party Executive Director Wes Benedict issued the following statement today:
"President Obama just called the Afghanistan War 'absolutely essential.' Nothing could be further from the truth. The U.S. armed forces are being used for nation-building. The president, as commander-in-chief, has the power to end this war, and he should begin doing so immediately.
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.
