Independence Day is an important day in America. It celebrates our Independence and the formation of The United States.
I think the best chance we have to restore The American Dream is a reformed Libertarian Party.
We made progress in Portland this last weekend. We removed a majority of an archaic platform that many Libertarians do not agree with.
We had about half of the Convention willing to remove the "Pledge" that should be removed.
We were able to defeat an inflammatory declaration that would have damaged us as a Political Party.
I know there are a lot of Libertarians that are discouraged by the above items. These Libertarians are "theoretical Libertarians" who I disagree with on some issues. THERE IS NO REASON FOR THEM TO BE DISCOURAGED.
There is room in the LP for both reformers and "theoretical" Libertarians.
If you do not like the changes made in Portland then you have to work over the next two years. GO out and convince people that you are right and I am wrong.
THAT IS WHAT A POLITICAL PARTY DOES.
The Libertarian Party needs people with a lot of different ideas. The Republicans and Democrats have many factions in their large pool of members. It is inevitable when you grow as a Party.
It is healthy.
I have added a link to The Libertarian Reform Caucus on my sidebar. I ask all Libertarians to visit the LRC site and I hope you all join the LRC as soon as possible. Get involved. Help us make the LP a more viable and successful Political Party.
