LP.org: Final round of voting on convention theme

Lauren Daugherty at LP.org:

Last week, we announced the contest to help choose our 2018 Libertarian Party National Convention theme.

Thanks to all who voted!

These top five advance to the next round:

$1,370 – I’m That Libertarian!
$1,097 – Pro Choice on Everything
$608 – Empowering the Individual
$220 – The Power of Principle
$155 – Building Bridges, Not Walls

These 11 have been eliminated :

$150 – Future of Freedom
$115 – Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness
$105 – Rise of the Libertarians
$75 – Free Lives Matter
$42 – Be Me, Be Free
$18 – Make Taxation Theft Again
$15 – Jazzed About Liberty
$15 – All of Your Freedoms, All of the Time
$15 – Taxation is Theft
$5 – Liberty Here and Now
$5 – Am I Being Detained!

Together these raised a total of $4,010 for convention expenses.

To vote in the second and final round, click on the name of your preferred theme(s) and donate in support. Each dollar donated counts as one vote.

These donations will be used to help cover early convention planning expenses.

The deadline for this second round of voting is noon Eastern on Tuesday, March 21, 2017.

The donations made in the first round to those 5 finalists will count towards the final tally for those same themes in the second round.

Donations towards a particular theme are not intended to be returned if that particular theme fails to win.

You can keep tabs on the progress of all themes by clicking here.

The 2018 Libertarian Party National Convention and associated activities will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, on June 30 through July 3, 2018. Please save the dates on your calendar!

Thanks for your help in preparing for our 2018 convention!

    I like “building bridges, not walls.” “Pro-choice on everything” would also be good. “I’m that Libertarian” sounds meaningless unless you were at or at least watched the last convention. “Empowering the individual” is good, but can come off as selfish. “The power of principle” doesn’t say anything about what those principles are.

    Overall, “building bridges, not walls” sounds most timely.

    My thoughts exactly. Unfortunately, it appears that “building bridges, not walls,” which pleasantly surprised me by leading for a while, has fallen back into second place.
