LP Monday Message: LNC members are on the trail

October 5, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I've been serving as the LP's Executive Director for about ten weeks now. While I do spend some time on visible things like blog postings or writing email broadcasts like this one, I've also spent a lot of my time on unseen things like database improvement and fundraising. I think our staff is making good progress in these areas, and I will have specific numbers to report in the near future.

LP Monday Message: Reagan not serious about cutting government, says Redpath

September 28, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

During the 2008 primary, many Republican presidential candidates claimed to be like former President Ronald Reagan. This was apparently intended to mean that they supported small government.

Elected Libertarian leads repeal of anti-homosexual law in Missouri

From Doug Burlison, Libertarian city councilmember in Springfield, Missouri:

On September 8, at my urging, our City Council (of which I am a member) repealed a local ordinance that prohibited homosexuals from "soliciting" each other. In other words, it was O.K. to put the "heterosexual moves" on a member of the opposite sex, but if you're gay, any talk about sex could've invited punitive measures...until now.
