Thank you's are in order! To those who came to the meeting and bravely expressed their pros/cons on our discussion on the propositions on the November ballot. To Ron for conducting the pro/con melee. To Michael E. for time keeping (I don't know how he can remain calm under the circumstances!) The "straw poll" preferences will be posted on the LPSF Website. The formal recommendations will be voted at the September 11 meeting.
Some of us will come to the "Principles over Politics Rally" on September 4, 2:00 - 4:00 pm. Organized by John Dennis, Congressional Candidate for District 8. Yes, this is the same District our own Phil Berg is running for. However, some of us are curious about what the illustrious guests at this event will say -- Ron Paul, and Matt Gonzalez. We know that Ron Paul is endorsing John, but the thought is Matt Gonzalez endorsing John Dennis is certainly worth a listen to!! If you want to stay together as a group, meet us at the statue in front of the Main Library (is it Vishnu?) at 2:00 pm
Thank you also to Bill Hemenger, Candidate for Supervisor, District 8, and his campaign manager Geoffrey Murry, for visiting us. We do not have an LPSF candidate for District 8, since Starchild missed out because of a couple of disqualified signatures. Therefore, if you want to volunteer for Bill, first step is to go to his website billfordistrict8.com .
We are still hoping that Starchild's Ballot Argument against Porp. J can appear on the Voter's Handbook. Given that not much is coming into the LPSF treasury, not much should be going out. Thus, we need to depend on donations for specific projects.
Unfortunately Brigette Portman, the researcher from UC Irvine, who said she was interviewing Democrats and Republicans but wanted to include libertarians also for a more balanced study, was not able to make it to our meeting. Perhaps we need to work harder on folks' perception that our views are worth considering!
So, look at our website lpsf.org for the straw poll on the propositions. Come out on September 4 to see what the "Ron Paul Republicans" have to say.
