Massachusetts LP passes resolution supporting Keaton

H/T George Phillies, in IPR comments:

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.

    Maybe you can get California to be the first one with a resolution that the LNC spend 100% of its time on Keaton and Flood and zero time doing stuffy boring shit that never gets anywhere, like the rest of its agenda for this weekend.

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

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

    I hope the California LP makes me proud. I’m waiting.
