Libertarians believe America's political mood is swinging their direction

The Libertarian Party of Texas holds its state convention this weekend, June 12-13. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram writes:

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.

LP Monday Message: New LNC members leading by example

June 7, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

While our recent national convention was a lot of work, I am especially encouraged that well over 500 people attended, when we were only expecting about 400. It was a huge success.

Your new Libertarian National Committee officers and representatives are already hard at work and leading by example.

Help fund our 'Stop Top Two' radio ads in California

Dear Friend of Liberty,

First I'd like to thank the 2010 convention delegates for electing me to serve as your new Libertarian National Committee Chairman. I hope to tell you more about our future plans, but right now I need your help to fend off an immediate threat to the Libertarian Party.

Please donate $1,000, $100, or whatever you can to help pay for our radio ads to fight Proposition 14 in California, the "Top Two" elections proposition.

The St. Louis Beacon has published a fairly extensive article on the Libertarian National Convention last weekend. It includes some coverage of our new chairman, Mark Hinkle:

My Last Column as Chairman

by William Redpath

reprinted from the May 2010 issue of LP News

I don’t know how he did it. Mickey Spillane supposedly squirreled himself away for a short period of time, and BAM-BAM-BAM-BAM-BAM—he would write a book. He wrote “I, the Jury” in only nineteen days, according to his Wikipedia page.

Ayn Rand was a big fan of Mickey Spillane’s. But, my writing speed is more like hers (slow, in case you didn’t know).

LP Monday Message: Vote on our slogans

May 24, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Delegates to the convention will vote on such things as our bylaws, platform language, and Libertarian National Committee members.

Libertarian National Convention: Attention delegates - useful info

Dear Libertarian,

I hope you will attend our National Convention in St. Louis. If you haven't decided whether to attend yet, it's still not too late -- you can even show up unannounced. However, there are some risks you need to be aware of if you show up to the convention without registering in advance, and without confirming your delegate status.

I want to point out the distinction between these two important preparations for attending the convention.

1. Registering for the Convention
