The Libertarian Party of Florida voted on their Sunday night, November 14th State Executive Committee phone conference to endorse Dallas, Texas as the site for the 2012 Naional Convention. The vote was unanimous.
“WHEREAS the Libertarian Party can grow only by attracting new members and supporters, and
“WHEREAS libertarianism is a unique political philosophy, distinct from both contemporary liberalism and contemporary conservatism, and
“WHEREAS we need the support of both former liberals and former conservatives who have come to realize that libertarianism and the Libertarian Party offer a better path to achieving a just, humane and prosperous society
“The Libertarian National Committee hereby resolves that our party, its representatives and staff should always state clearly and unequivocally that we welcome individuals from across the political spectrum who now accept the libertarian principles of self-ownership and non-aggression.”

Thank you for your hard work, monetary contributions, and dedication to Malik’s Green Party Congressional campaign. As Malik Rahim’s campaign manager, I really cannot thank you enough! As you have probably heard, Malik did not win in the 2nd Louisiana Congressional District election held December 6, 2008.
Good news in just the title of the latest AP story. There are pages of google news articles from media outlets that published the AP headline: “Indicted Louisiana congressman tries to get re-elected” (That refers to Malik’s opponent, the Democrat incumbent who is facing corruption charges, partly for having $90,000 in cash in his refrigerator.)
The other good news in the AP article is that turnout is low.
