We held our annual state convention on May 4th with a 104 paying attendees, it being the largest convention we’ve had in quite a while. We would have done better but Tom Woods was in town for a GOP sponsored event that partially overlapped with ours.

David Arvidson is our newly elected Chair. He was a 2012 state house candidate and Ron Paul delegate. Please add his email, to this list. Thanks.

    Adam Kokesh? Well it was a success, for sure 🙂

    Excited for the Illinois LP convention this September in Bolingbrook. Tom Woods and Robert Murphy are speaking at it.

    Is the chair of the LP Minnesota a Republican? He was a GOP Ron Paul delegate.
    Takeover by the GOP in Minnesota.

    Many Ron Paul supporters are joining the LP, especially after they saw how Ron Paul was treated at the Republican national convention, and compared Johnson with Romney. I think that’s different from a Republican takeover.

    Also, some Ron Paul supporters are returning long time LP members and activists. Not sure about this case.

    What Paulie said. I know more than a few old-school LP members in Nevada switched to the GOP for a spell to help Ron Paul in his last run. Probably more of the same here.

    Realistically, if the LP wants to actually win anything, it mathematically must get GOP and Democrats to switch over – there’s just no way to secure a plurality otherwise. On the other hand, being a political hipster can be satisfying at times.

    Ron Paul supporters are a good group to target for recruitment.
