RE: [lpsf-discuss] LPOC adopts resolution opposing cruise ship convention

Sounds good to me

Mike Denny

Does not sound good to me at all: 1) If we boycott the convention
and do not participate, are we then going to complain about
resolutions that were passed at the convention without our vote? 2)
Is the last paragraph of the LPOC resolution an attempt at
intimidation? 3) Given the pickle the local counties are now in as a
result of the divorce from LP National without any alimony, should we
not be focusing on a cooperative plan at the local levels?

I encourage other Central Committees to adopt this resolution and

send

a clear message that whatever the LPCA intentions, we are a party of
inclusion, not exclusion.

Norm Firecracker Westwell

On 10/19/05 the Orange County Central Committee adopted the

following

resolution:

Resolution to oppose the 2006 California Libertarian State Party
Convention from convening outside the state of California upon a

ocean

vessel bound for the country of Mexico

Whereas the Libertarian Party of California is now scheduled to hold
our upcoming 2006 Annual Convention on a cruise ship bound for a
foreign land and

Whereas the vessel contracted is not a vessel of the United States
fleet and

Whereas in order to attend this convention, members in good standing
will be unduly and unnecessarily encumbered to obtain passports in
order to participate in official party business and

Whereas Libertarian Party members in good standing who are prone to
sea sickness are not likely to participate and

Whereas Libertarian Party members in good standing who are afraid of
transport on an ocean going vessel are not likely to attend and

Whereas Libertarian Party members in good standing who cannot

lawfully

travel to a foreign land will not be able to participate in official
party business and

Whereas Libertarian Party members in good standing who refuse to
travel to a foreign land will not be able to participate in official
party business and

Whereas these things all tend to exclude rather than include
Libertarian members in good standing from participating in official
state party business,

Be it resolved, the Libertarian Party of Orange County admonishes

the

Libertarian Party of California for its action to cause the 2006
Libertarian Party State Convention to be convened upon a cruise ship
bound for a foreign land (Mexico) and hereby opposes the event and

Resolves itself to work toward preventing the 2006 Libertarian Party
State Convention event from occurring on a vessel at sea and

Resolves itself to work toward having the 2006 Libertarian Party

State

Convention in a hotel on dry land in the state of California in the
United States of America as in previous years and

Resolves itself to removing from office any California Libertarian
Party officer who does not oppose the event and participates in

party

I'm not so sure.

EC member Bruce Cohen has already busied himself on at least one
other list, distributing counter remarks by R*i*c*h*a*r*d
R*i*d*e*r, which raise some valid criticisms of the action.

What is the LPOC going to do for its members who want to attend a
convention next year?
