Sign the petition to rescue our Libertarian Party platform

The more people who sign the petition at www.Restore04.com then the more likely we'll be able to rescue the Libertarian Party platform from the so-called "reformers."

We've now released the Restoration Caucus proposal for the 2008 platform. If the lack of a clear proposal was what had been keeping you from signing the Restore04.com petition, then please read the draft, and sign the petition.

We're happy to hear feedback about the draft, and we're working on getting the Platform Committee to make this proposal at least a minority report, if not the majority report, of the committee. If all else fails, David Nolan will make a motion from the convention floor to remove consideration of the Platform Committee report from the agenda and instead use the time to consider the Restoration Caucus proposal.

This is very important. The current Platform Committee draft does not mention the Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, Real ID Act, or even the War in Iraq. In addition, it's the first platform in the history of the Libertarian Party that isn't pro-choice. I have no doubt that this Republican-lite platform will fail to win the 2/3 majority required for its adoption in Denver. But I also don't want us to be stuck with the current remnants-only platform that we came out of Portland with in 2006. This is why we must convince the Platform Committee to keep the 2006 planks intact, restore the 2004 planks that were deleted in 2006, and merely make adjustments to the restored platform by combining similar planks and re-wording without removing ideas altogether. This is what the Restoration Caucus proposal does. I hope you will support it:
