Restore '04 Gaining Support - But We Can't Let Up
The effort to restore the planks that were stricken from the
Libertarian Party's national platform in 2006 is off to a good
start, but the battle is far from over. In fact, it's just
More than 100 Libertarians signed up on the Restore '04 website in
the final week of 2007, and the total is now more than 150. But the
people who want a vague platform that takes few if any stands on
specific issues are also on the move, and dominate the platform
committee. So we need to build our numbers, make our voices heard,
and turn out in Denver to make sure that the Libertarian Party's
platform pulls no punches.
You can help by doing two things, right now.
First, contact Libertarians you know who are likely to support our
efforts, and urge them to join the Restoration Caucus at
http://www.Restore04.com . Most of you receiving this message must
know at least three people who favor a strong platform, and almost
everyone knows at least one person who will join our cause IF you
take the time to contact them personally. So please, do it today! If
you have a blog or belong to an online discussion group, use these
Second, please participate in the online survey currently being
conducted by LP National HQ, asking for feedback about the direction
our platform should take. Many of the questions offer false
"either-or" choices, with neither option being satisfactory. But
there's a place (question 14) where you can add your own comments,
and that provides an opportunity to promote Restore '04. Just a few
words will suffice. Here's a link to the survey:
If the link doesn't work, go to the Libertarian Party's home page
http://www.LP.org , and you'll find a link there.
Thanks again for your support!
