In the aftermath of the recent senseless tragedy at a Connecticut
school, legislators in both Washington and St Paul are gearing up
to "do something". The Libertarian Party of Minnesota is proposing
a solution to bolster school safety, while defending the ability of
responsible individuals to bear arms.
By a 7-0 vote, the LPMN Executive Committee unanimously passed a resolution calling for federal and state legislators to repeal the prohibition on self-defense by teachers and other adults on school grounds, to resist misguided legislation that further erodes freedom, and to stand up for the right of all peaceful, responsible adults to defend themselves.
We believe that violence is best addressed by expanding liberty, not by further restricting it.
Lately many in the liberty movement have been asking "what to do next?" To start, let's remember that WE THE PEOPLE are the leaders, not the politicians! The actions we take will influence what happens next. It's up to us to choose what form of action will create the best results from our efforts. That said, here are 10 compelling reasons why Ron Paul Republicans should strongly consider joining the Libertarian Party to promote the message of liberty!
After years of battling within the GOP in the hopes that the cause of liberty might be taken seriously by its leaders and candidates, some activists from Ron Paul's movement turned to the LPMN. They found a very different reception!
Three of Ron Paul's Minnesota coordinators realized that liberty had reached the end of the line in the Republican Party after their national convention in Tampa, Florida. Recognizing that a consistent voice for liberty is what's needed in today's debate, and that Libertarians are uniquely positioned to reach out to both the Right and the Left to promote the benefits of freedom, they approached the Libertarian Party.
Libertarians have emerged from this election with a real sense of momentum, with many already looking forward to 2014 and 2016! The story behind this and results of the various races are presented here.
