Mindful that the Libertarian National Committee, in their recent meeting, recognized a need to raise money as a critical issue, LNC Chair Angela McArdle issued on the LNC Public List issued a series of directives to the LNC’s staff and members, which we quote here:
Hi everyone,I’m being a big bad chair and issuing some directives to help us!Chair’s Directive No. One: The executive director is instructed to hire an outsourced HR dept and to send me a copy of the contract. Chair’s Directive No. Two:
[redacted/staff related] To be published soonChairs Directive No. 3:
An ad hoc Fundraising Committee shall be created, constituted by up to 5 members who shall report directly to the Fundraising Director. The three members I have appointed so far are Shawn Hickman, Rich Bowen, and Martin Cowen. Chair’s Directive No. 4:
Everyone with social media should be coming up with a creative way to ask for donations on social media at least once every three weeks. If you need help, talk to me. Discord counts as social media.Chair’s Directive No. 5:
(To myself): Chair is to work with the social media team and staff to give a 5 minute video update to members every week, either live or pre recorded. This is to start no later than the first week of June, unless the timing is a burden to staff.Chair’s Directive No. 6:
Marc Tuniewicz, Dustin Blankenship, Will Hyman and Todd Hagopian are to search for a proposal for board governance or board training, and try to find the most affordable training you can find. I would appreciate if Marc and Will can take this on since Dustin and Todd are already burdened, but I would like their input before bringing a proposal to me.

“ One of the captain’s mistakes was that he turned the ship away from the iceberg, trying to avoid it. It was too late for that. But in turning, the iceberg ripped a wide gash along the ship’s side.”
Exactly the point I was making. The LNC moves the angle of the rudder almost daily. Back and forth. Full steam ahead! Ignore the warnings! It is almost as if they are trying to sink the ship.
My gut feeling is that at least some of them are. So sad…
There is some evidence that the bottom was also chewed up by an ice shelf, to the point that the turn, and throwing the engines into reverse at the same time, was disadvantageous.
but they do appear to have aimed themselves right at the iceberg at their last convention.
Had the Titanic aimed directly at the iceberg, it would have survived. Its nose would have been crushed, and the people up front would have been killed. But it would not have sunk.
One of the captain’s mistakes was that he turned the ship away from the iceberg, trying to avoid it. It was too late for that. But in turning, the iceberg ripped a wide gash along the ship’s side.
I read that in Liberty magazine, which published a long article about the Titanic disaster after the movie came out.
I see they hired a new edgelord as “Messenger in Residence” so everything must be good in the LP HHHCaucus world.
I seem to recall stories about the orchestra playing as the Titanic sank. Something about them re-arranging the deck chairs as well. ..
I certainly do not wish ill for them, as I still have a lot of friends who remain involved in the LP, but they do appear to have aimed themselves right at the iceberg at their last convention.
