Questions for the Candidates for Chair and Vice-Chair

I would encourage our members to begin asking any questions of the
candidates for party office now.
~Chris

Questions for the candidates for Chair and Vice-Chair:
1. Do you agree with me that a key position differentiating us from
the
SF Republicans, Democrats, and Greens is we are unconditionally
anti-war, since war violates the rights of taxpayers forced to fund it
(whether they support it or not) of the warring country and violates
the rights of the innocents killed in the attacked country? Please
elaborate.
2. Do you support having an activity as part of every monthly meeting,
e.g., writing letters to the editor, calling elected representatives,
calling registered libertarians, etc.? Please elaborate.

Thank you for your participation.

Best, Michael

1. I don't agree that the LP is "unconditionally" anti-war. Indeed you
attribute a couple of conditions to war, below, which will not
necessarily be true in every case. Innocents are not killed in every
attack (there are many minor conflicts which receive very little
publicity), and taxpayers are not forced to fund every war. To answer
the question of differentiation, I believe the LP is more anti-war than
the Republicans and Democrats, but probably no more so than the Greens.
However just saying one is "anti-war" is too simple. Such a description
offers no clue as to how one would stand on, say, the African Union
countries sending troops to Ivory Coast to help stop the civil war
there. Arguably if you are against sending troops in such a case, then
you are pro-war, or at least not anti-war, since the action (or lack of
action) you propose would give the war a greater chance of continuing
at a greater level of bloodshed.

2. Yes I do support having such activities as part of our monthly
meetings, at least until such time as we seem to have a lot of activism
going on outside the monthly meetings.

Yours in liberty,
