Libertarians for Saving Nevada Brothels: ‘a perfect storm of opportunity, a win/win for women, Nevada and Libertarians…’

Email from Debra Dedmon announcing her new group, Libertarians for Saving Nevada Brothels:

A perfect storm of opportunity, a win/win for women, Nevada and Libertarians…

Legalized prostitution is a hallmark of Nevada history, and, along with gaming, essential to its unique experience with personal liberty. Not legislating morality is the foundation that turned a barren desert into an oasis and throughout the decades has attracted millions of freedom seekers from all over the world.

Prohibiting the brothel industry in Nevada will not save women from exploitation or danger one iota. In fact, it will put them in far greater harms way by taking a regulated, safe avenue for sex workers and forcing them out onto the street where they risk jail, pimps and degradation.

With the Nevada economy one of the worst in the nation, it seems absurd to kill a legitimate workplace for many women, and leave them without a job. Not to mention that tourism is already down along with conventions etc. We don’t need to kill any reason that attracts people to our state and whether we like it or not, legal brothels are a huge part of Nevada’s allure.

In fact, in light of the economy, Nevadans/liberty lovers and anyone who loves why sin city got its name, should be pushing for legalized brothels or better yet decriminalizing sex work in Clark County.

Save women, save Sin City, boost the economy and let legislators know that they cannot control what consenting adults do with their bodies.

What happens in Nevada stays in Nevada, and that includes our sex workers…

    Thanks for the work. I hope this takes off, and I’ll help how I can.

    In general, I hope to see more libertarians start activist groups with the L word in them that associate libertarianism with real life political issues of the moment that touch people’s lives and with their communities.

    If Libertarians get prostitution decriminalized in Vegas perhaps we can get a Libertarian discount going for the convention…

    I posted on the group’s facebook page from time to time.

    I support the current status quo on prostitution in Nevada, which is to leave it up to the counties to either ban or legalize it; some places in our state shouldn’t have a brothel, while other places are in such a financial hole that one is much needed to help their economy and fund the local government via tax revenue.

    W.A.R. hasn’t offered to take a leading role yet? Omg he must not know about it yet!

    ~lol , faux news might cut him off for such a LIBERTARIAN move as supporting you guys…

    Wayne nor the state Chair Silvestri have not weighed in the issue one way or another . Discussion was active on the issue with the Treasurer Michael , the Northern Rep Colborne Central Rep Darby , and At Large Rep Chris all chiming in saying the LPNevada should say something and take a stance.

    as was the protocol last term , Silvestri has chosen to entirely ignore the excom , maybe because he no longer likes me because I dared to not vote how he told me to everytime , maybe something else… either way not 1 message of welcome or business or ANYTHING has been posted to the excom list since convention.

    my take on it is there will be no business then at least nothing potentially embarrassing to Wayne and his chances for getting positive media and the pres nod can occur.

    quid pro quo

    You can get just as much media credibility as “Libertarians for Saving Nevada Brothels” as you can as “Libertarian Party of Nevada.” Hope to see more media mentions soon…send them to us 🙂

    @12 -“my take on it is there will be no business then at least nothing potentially embarrassing to Wayne and his chances for getting positive media and the pres nod can occur.”

    This is interesting to me. Sitting in my den in ’08 watching on TV I was somewhat amazed that WWIII, as I referred to WAR in those days, didn’t receive a single vote from the NV delegation. Am I right on that or is my aging grey cells failing me again? Not only no votes, but he wasn’t seated as a delegate in his adopted home state! If so we ALL know he voted for himself on each vote as long as he stayed viable (what 4 times?). I was thinking at home he and his daughter might be in the CA delegation.

    Now you (from what I can gather are an active NVLP member) say the officer(s) might be in favor of Root getting the LP POTUS nomination. Very interesting!

    Stop ALL war…

    Ill be working the next week makingnew contacts with brothel workers and putting out a press release. if any notorious brothel owners join , will let u kno asap

    “didn’t receive a single vote from the NV delegation. Am I right on that or is my aging grey cells failing me again? Not only no votes, but he wasn’t seated as a delegate in his adopted home state!’

    ME_he did not recieve any votes mostly because we hadonly heard of him maybe a month or two before Denver and he had not earned our support , this has since changed and I have NO PROBLEM with him being on the excom in NV and he has been very active in our events/conventions.

    as for not being a delegate in 08 , he did not attend the convention where we nominated delegates

    Paulie Cannoli We could still use some help with this. I just looked up some general contact info, but if you know people who know people, that might help. Also, someone has to actually still follow and contact them. Maybe more than one person, you may have a better chance of getting attention. Also, there’s many more contacts you could get, brothel workers for example.
