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. About 60 candidates were interviewed in half-hour shows produced with Sue Jeffers, talk show host for FM 100.3 KTLK. None held office, and most had never been in office before.
Airline travelers are increasingly upset by the TSA's latest invasive and demeaning tactics, as government officials seem deaf to the outrage. Story after story fills the news with tales of travelers humiliated at airport security checkpoints and fed-up with a massive bureaucracy out of control. In protest, the LPMN is urging resistance to the government's new body scanners and enhanced pat-downs.
Unfortunately, no LPMN candidates won this time around. Nonetheless, important positives can be gleaned from the results. Many thanks to all of our candidates for making the personal decision to stand up, spread the message, and get active for liberty! In addition, a news roundup is presented of other races around the nation which may be of interest to Libertarians.
