LP Monday Message: Republicans and Democrats are both terrible for health care

November 23, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I don't know about you, but I'm getting a little tired of hearing Republicans act self-righteous about this health care bill. Of course it's a terrible bill that will increase government and taxes and make our health care worse -- but let's take a short trip down memory lane.

LP Monday Message: 167 potential candidates in just two days!

November 16, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

It was so nice to see 167 people respond within two days to last week's call for candidates. I'll remind you again that expressing interest is an important first step in the process of working with our state and local affiliates to get candidates onto the ballot.

David Blau, chair of the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts, says, "While [Mr. Kennedy] will appear on the ballot as an Independent due to a provision of state law, I have spoken with him at length and believe him to be an excellent libertarian candidate."

LP Monday Message: Here's how to Run for Office

November 9, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I want you to run for office.

Thanks from Libertarian candidate in Virginia


From Virginia Libertarian candidate Matt Cholko:



As you probably know by now, our campaign received 3.14% of the vote yesterday. I tried hard not to set any specific goal for electoral performance, but I can safely say that we did better than I was thinking that we would. Of course, no matter how well we would have done, all of us would have liked to do even better. Fortunately, with the skills and knowledge gained through this campaign, I believe that everyone involved will be in a much better position to succeed in the future.

LP Monday Message: Help us Oppose Health Care Plan

November 2, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

The Republicans had control of the federal government for years, and they used their power to greatly increase the size, scope, and burden of government.

Now the Democrats are in charge and they're doing it too. Their health care plan currently in the works is a serious threat to liberty.

More Bailout MADNESS!! Are you fed up enough to run for Congress?

I can't believe Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner wants to hand out billions more bailout money to GMAC!

And who knows if we'll be able to stop the Obama government health care takeover? We couldn't stop Bush and the Republican Congress from passing the $400 billion (later $1.2 trillion!) Medicare drug plan.

Are you mad enough to run for Congress as a Libertarian yourself? I hope so!
