Libertarian National Committee,
I strongly object to a mandatory floor fee for delegates and urge the full LNC not to impose such a fee for the 2014 convention.
I have already written about this issue extensively. Rather than rehash my points in a long email, I will simply link [read more]

Subject: [Lnc-business] Dallas LNC meeting proposed agenda
Attached. I had this almost ready a few days ago, but needed confirmation from Mr. Sinawski about his availability before I sent this out.
For the record, my proposed agenda is in conflict with the “canned” agenda in the Policy Manual. I am willing to prepare two, as I have done before, or you can just assume that the “canned” agenda is an alternate option, but we have yet to follow the “canned” agenda during this term.
I have done my best to set the priorities in accordance with the big picture requirements of this meeting, with budget as priority one, and the Audit Committee as priority two, even though they do not follow in that order.
Call to Order 8:30AM
Opportunity for Public Comment 5 Minutes
Credentials Report 5 Minutes
Paperwork Check 10 [read more]
As is always the case, much of what I do on an ongoing basis is routine, and not worth delineating absent a directive or policy to do so, so I won’t burden or bore you.
Additionally, much of what I do will be covered in other reports, and I [read more]
This was found on the LNC Discuss email list. The initial letter was sent out by Aaron Starr, and the comments from others on the Executive Committee follow. I will update the article if more conversation is released to the LNC Discuss list.
Also, I’m not able to access the pdf of the LNC Historical Revenue Trends referred to at the end of Mr. Starr’s letter. If someone has access to that and can send that to me, I’ll post it here.

While I was busy learning life’s lessons the hard way about everything from facing down bullies intent on relieving me of my milk money to dealing with thugs that were determined to do me harm, my father was teaching me something else. [read more]
This is an editorial.
Many within the LP refuse to see the obvious. Like major party voters, if someone tells them what they want to hear, it’s enough.
Evidence that a self-proclaimed libertarian is actually anti-liberty rarely seems to matter, [read more]

They are the code for his campaign’s bitcoin wallet, where holders of the so-called digital [read more]
*As I previously noted,
the Libertarian National Committee will be meeting next weekend near Dallas-Ft. Worth airport. See details here. IPR is looking for volunteer correspondents to help us cover the meeting. If you can be there in person to help livestream, liveblog, tape, provide equipment for any of these, provide a phone internet connection if the hotel blocks wi-fi in the meeting room, or record your own version of the events to post after the fact or with periodic updates, please let us know in the comments or by calling or texting me at 415-690-6352. If we are able to get a livestream, we’ll also be looking for people to provide text comments on what is happening as it occurs for the benefit of those unable or unwilling to watch the livestream themselves.
So far I have had one person say they will check to see if their cousin may help with recording. We are still looking for additional help. I have received no calls or texts about this at all. Earlier I [read more]
Video posted at the LP national facebook. It does not specifically mention the Libertarian Party per se, but since it is posted on the party’s official facebook page it can be considered on topic for IPR.
Who better than you knows how to live your life? Certainly a scandal-ridden, incompetent government miles from your life and your problems doesn’t. Who better than you knows how you can help people? Certainly a government that has lied time and again, built structures only to leave them unused, and spends almost 1 trillion dollars more than it has every year doesn’t. Live your own life, and let others live theirs. Help other people yourself. That’s what being a Libertarian is about.
