Please add these groups as agenda items for formal endorsements by the LPSF at
our August 14 LPSF meeting. Please note these are all Face Book sites.
Fix Muni Now ( need I say more )
Economic Recovery SF ( about those new taxes )
San Franciscans For Smart Reform ( the Adachi initiative)
The reason being with a formal endorsement we can post the notice to the group
Face Book sites on the Wall and also post a page site on their side panel
referencing the LPSF.
Secondly, with a formal endorsement we can then do a special campaign and send a
message to each member of those groups a brief short notice saying LPSF endorsed
the group and its goal and what the hey take a look at us on our Face Book
and/or web site.
It's a safe and sane way to not necessarily recruit new Libertarians but to
maybe at least attract like minded people who may visit our Face Book page and
sign on or visit the web page and may come to a meeting and may eventually
It's one way to get the message out there and very cheaply as the postage rate
for the ether net is Zero.
I posted a "Thank you" yesterday, but it appears my e-mail was eaten up by Yahoo. So, again, thank you. As I recall, LPSF already endorsed Fix Muni Now (I see in the Minutes "Support for this measure can be given on the LPSF website"). I agree with your suggestion of SMART Reform; I don't recall us discussing it before at the meeting.
Speaking of posting stuff on LPSF Facebook, I am wondering if you and others might want to comment on how you visualize what is posted. For example, I posted something on Prop 19, and the thought occurred to me whether it was intended that the posts needed to reflect only "official" positions of LPSF. I am totally OK with abiding with whatever Rob and you, who started the Facebook page, intended; but would like to just express my thought that maybe LPSF could have a public forum for diverse ideas within the LPSF. (Obviously, courtesy, etc. would be essential, as it is in our Yahoo Groups). Just a thought.
The LPSF Face Book site is set up as an open forum. So anyone who is a member of
the LPSF Face Book group can post on the wall. Being a LPSF Face Book member
does not mean the person is a registered Libertarian or a dues paying member of
the LPSF. This is where the moderators come in to remove abusive posts and
commentary - otherwise all comments are welcome - But of course we would prefer
Libertarian leaning commentez vous.
Thank you for the clarification, Ron. I am glad that is how you envision this forum.
