An appeal to conservatives: Opposing the Gay Marriage Ban on Constitutional grounds

"Mind what people do, not what they say for deeds will betray a lie." - Terry Goodkind

The LPMN's previous article discussed our principled position against the proposed gay marriage ban, which we hope will convince libertarians, liberals, and conservatives alike.

Message from the Chair: 2010 “Constitutional Candidates”

Would you like to help hold Minnesota's legislators accountable? In 2010, I helped to publicize candidates for public office through my public cable access show, "Constitutional Candidates". While these candidates were not LPMN-endorsed, they had expressed support for limited government.
