Millions are waking up to finding their freedoms and liberties being encroached upon and smothered by the monstrous growth of government. Many no longer feel that their government is "theirs" but has instead become an insatiable monster that looks for every opportunity to grow bigger and more powerful—with the justification, of course, that it's all for the benefit of "We the people".
The Libertarian approach to political change is to take action to create policies, procedures and laws that dramatically decrease taxes, shrink government and return money and authority back to each individual. Big government is the disease; small government is the cure!
Since this is a year to review the bylaws, some time will be spent on discussing and voting on them. The largest part of the Convention, however, will spent on learning the special skills that are essential to any social or political movement. In a variety of break-out sessions these skills and techniques will be used to focus on effective methods for recruiting and training political candidates and on effectively rallying resources in order to run better and better campaigns—towards the goal of getting more Libertarians elected. The Libertarian Party is the fastest growing party in the country! This is the time to be an early member of a long-term political success story.
While this is LPNC's annual state Convention, it will also be an enjoyable "boot-camp"—an information and participation-packed weekend to catapult you into the society that is begging for effective leaders who are passionate about improving their life and the society around them—whatever the political or social movement preferences. Each of us has within us a piece of the puzzle on how to dramatically improve our world, and diverse points of view tend to produce the best ideas—if we are patient and keep working until we achieve whole-hearted agreement on how we can work together.
I look forward to meeting you, a person who understands that dramatic changes are necessary in order to steer this country away from a course that seems bent on self-destruction and onto a path back to the basics that have made this country great. I'm looking forward to learning with you the skills and techniques that will help make our efforts more effective as we create a better future. And after the Convention, I look forward to an on-going relationship as we, together, inspire others to be part of Liberty in Action!
