From a blog posting today by the Secretary of the 2008 Libertarian Party Platform Committee (i.e. this reporter):
GP+LP fusion won’t send the right electoral signal unless there is a clear national-level statement of our common ground. There are two good possible starting points for such a statement: 1) the Free Earth Manifesto, and 2) this redacted version of the Democratic Freedom Caucus platform. I would love for an intellectually-adventurous Green Party insider to take her red (or green) pen to either document and see how little she could cross out before finding the remainder supportable. I’m confident that the remainder would still be a bold and powerful statement for human liberty and ecological wisdom.
The 2010 Libertarian Party Platform Committee will be meeting Dec. 12-13 in Las Vegas to write its report for the May 2010 LP convention in St. Louis. LP Secretary Bob Sullentrup announced last week the final state membership rankings for determining 2010 PlatCom representation. CO has moved into the top 10, displacing MI into 11th place. The top 10 states each get one PlatCom rep, and are (in order): CA, TX, FL, OH, NY, VA, IL, PA, CO, GA.
