WHEREAS, the actions by Angela Keaton have not had a materially negative impact on the Libertarian Party, its candidates, staff, or related parties;

    MASSACH– USETTS PASSES RESOLUTION SUPPORTING KEATON

    Whereas, Angela Keaton was elected with the strong support of the delegates at the 2008 Libertarian National Convention, and

    Whereas furthermore, the lack of performance of the Libertarian Party this past election cycle, under what should have been ideal electoral circumstances, should be cause for serious reflection, and

    Whereas furthermore, spending the valuable meeting time of the Libertarian National Committee on personality disputes brings the National Committee and hence our party into disrepute, therefore

    Be it resolved, that the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts calls upon the Libertarian National Committee to decline to consider resolutions suspending Angela Keaton, and

    Be it further resolved, that the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts commends to the Libertarian National Committee the desirability of spending its precious meeting time on important issues that may advance our party,

    Be it further resolved, that the Libertarian Party of Massachusetts urges the Libertarian National Committee to spend that time, instead, on contemplating the substantive objectives of its budget and volunteer mobilization programs for the next year, and

    For if the National Committee does not do so, the members of our voluntary organization may eventually conclude that alternative organizational structures are required if the Libertarian political movement is to advance.

    I emailed a have dozen or so members of the California LP earlier this week, asking them to emulate Georgia.

    I’ve not heard back from anyone. No resolution from the California LP so far as I can tell.

    Fuck that.

    They should cancel the rest of the agenda and make the whole thing about Keaton and maybe a little Wayne Root huff-n-puff.
