"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. Here is an additional op-ed piece by Executive Committee member Tylor James Slinger, intended to counter some of MNGOP's arguments:
In an unusual action, the Libertarian Party of Minnesota held a special meeting on May 7 to consider a response to the anti-liberty legislation now being proposed by Republican legislators in the Minnesota House and Senate.
At the State Convention on April 30, balloting was held for all
party officials and Executive Committee seats, with four new at-large members joining the LPMN leadership. Three changes were made
to the Bylaws, and a Libertarian candidate was nominated for local-level office. Speakers discussed Libertarian politics at the
national level and challenged the convention delegates to consider
new ways to move the libertarian movement forward.
Registration is now open for the 2011 state convention, to be held on April 30th in Rochester. Attendance is open to the public. It's an opportunity for the public to hear distinguished Libertarian speakers as well as for members to conduct business. Early registration is requested but not required; those interested in attending may arrive the day of the convention.
