It's been just over a year since I moved to Washington, D.C. to work at the Libertarian Party Headquarters as Executive Director. What a change from Texas.
In addition to being much closer to the federal government and its constant flow of bad policies with worldwide repercussions, the local District of Columbia government provides constant reminders that our liberty is jeopardized in small ways as well.
How do we Libertarians most effectively allocate our limited resources? Suppose you have $100 to contribute to aiding the cause of liberty. How should you spend that $100? One obvious answer is to donate it to the Libertarian Party – at the national, state or local level. Another is to contribute to the campaigns of Libertarian candidates you particularly favor. All of those options make sense.
The Libertarian National Committee is now accepting applications for our Fall 2010 internship program.
The program will run from early September until November 30th. Interns will be required to work 16 hours a week at a rate of $8.25 an hour. If requested, interns enrolled in a post-secondary institution can receive university credit.
We are looking to recruit students from a variety of fields. Primarily, we are looking for students with experience in any of the following fields, journalism, communications, political science, economics, and philosophy.
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.
