LP Monday Message: Burnout

May 2, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Last Saturday I spoke at the LP Minnesota state convention. I enjoyed my time at the convention, and I'd like to thank them for hosting me.

Below are two questions I was asked after my speech, along with my responses. (The questions and my responses are not verbatim, and may be embellished with a few phrases I wish I had thought of at the time!)

Question 1: Is burnout a problem when Libertarians continually receive single-digit percentages?

Libertarian Party celebrates end of bin Laden era

WASHINGTON - Libertarian Party Chairman Mark Hinkle issued this statement today:

"I am glad to hear of the death of Osama bin Laden, who had no qualms about slaughtering American civilians.

"Unfortunately, bin Laden leaves behind an evil legacy in the United States: the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, the PATRIOT Act, warrantless wiretaps, the 'state secrets' doctrine, and other violations of Americans' civil and economic rights.

"Just like Osama bin Laden, these programs must be terminated.

LNC Board Meeting - Alexandria, VA, April 16-17

The Libertarian National Committee met in Alexandria, Virginia this past weekend. The agenda inculded establishing a budget for fiscal year 2011, planning for 2012, and discussing ideas to grow the party.

They also discussed funding for ballot access measures throughout the country.

I talked with a handful of board members who were all very pleasant and excited about welcoming me aboard.

I spoke of moving the party forward in a unconventional way, using video imagery that's professional, cool, and something the two old parties aren't doing.
