Libertarian Party of Oregon Launches Facebook Page

Recently, a Facebook page was created by the Libertarian Party of Oregon. In doing so, Oregon is the final state to set up an official page on the social media network. All Libertarian Party state affiliates now have a Facebook page, although several are infrequently updated and some haven’t had any new content posted in many months, since even the 2012 elections.

The LP Oregon Facebook page is below:

The Tim Reeves group, which has been fighting for control of the LP of Oregon for several years but has been unsuccessful in its efforts, has maintained its own Facebook page for a longer period of time: https://www.facebook.com/LibertarianPartyOfOregon. IPR has chronicled the ongoing leadership dispute in the Oregon LP since its start, one needs only to search for “Libertarian Party of Oregon” in the search box to learn more background on the situation.

    We have had a Facebook group for quite some time and various email groups … however we deferred creating a Facebook page until we had a sufficient support network and maturity available.

    The Facebook page effort is led by Lars Hedbor who is an author, a long time member of the LP and our party vice-chairperson.

    In the past year and a half:
    The Wagner group has held the LPO’s first statewide primary election, privately funded, nominating a record number of candidates.
    The Reeves/Burke/Carling group has been suing the LPO, and nominated three candidates — two of them Republicans.
    The Wagner group has expanded LPO membership to over 15,000.
    The Reeves groups has gone from claiming a couple hundred members to a few dozen.
    The Wagner people’s facebook group has acquired 253 members.
    The Reeves group’s facebook page has accumulated 92 “likes”.
    The Wagner group has held monthly social gatherings and well-attended board meetings, all publicly announced.
    The Reeves group has met, I hear, but who knows? Their meetings are not publicly announced, to my knowledge.
    The Wagner group, recognized by the state of Oregon, is recruiting new members and planning for next year’s primary election.
    The Reeves group, recognized by nobody who matters, is busily trying to avoid paying over $60,000 in defendants’ attorney fees for their frivolous lawsuit.

    Which group would you rather support?

    Seems a few people are finding out the hard way that latching on to the Burke bandwagon can have a very steep cost. Often, Burke himself walks away while others are left with the mess.

    Maybe this time Burke can be sent to debtors prison.

    Debtors prison, really? Will he be put in the stockade, tarred and feathered or drawn and quartered as well? LOL

    Had I meant those too I would have mentioned them.

    Nothing wrong with hoping that he has to pay up in whatever way he can be made to pay at this point in time.

    Debtor’s prisons do not really exist anymore… unless someone disobeys a court order and gets sent to court for contempt.

    Inability to pay typically equals bankruptcy protection.

    The number is six digits and starts with a 2

    We have not been awarded fees. We have a hearing on July 18th to discuss whether or not the plaintiffs lawsuit was without objective reasonableness. If the judge rules that is fact, then the fees are a shall-issue under statute.

    Bingo. I thought you were used to the way some
    Burke-related discussions can sound like.

    Anyway, I hope his fingerprints are on this enough to be held liable for some of it. Also, with this registered LP party membership genie out of the bottle, it may actually be impossible for Burke and friends to gain control of the LPO ever again.
