    This is good news. Congratulations to the Indiana Libertarian Party.

    BTW, I caught an article a couple weeks ago of a Planning Board Supervisor in Northern Illinois who was described as a “Libertarian.” He’s 72, and giving local elected Democrats, and even Republicans hell.

    The LP HQ ought to look into this guy.

    They don’t have a ton of power there, but it is important to have some of our people working on the inside. It speaks a lot for these guys that the Democrats and Republicans have repeatedly appointed them to these positions. I interacted with them a bit in the Indy LP and can say many positive things about them.

    The Indy LP hosts many events including monthly business meetings, “After Hours” social events, and a monthly Meetup. The Meetup is drawing around 25 people to each meeting, even after the elections and in awful weather. It actually is going to have to move to a bigger location!

    Indiana gave LP nominee Bob Barr his largest percentage of any state in the country.

    Indiana also has one of the stronger state affiliates for the Boston Tea Party.

    Watch out for the Indiana libertarians!
