Some suggestions for meaningful & sustainable LP success

Paul Ireland can be rather hot-headed sometimes and has pissed a lot of people off, but on the issues he tends to be mostly right, imho. I thought the following message he posted to the Libertarian Party of California candidates' list was insightful, well-written, and worth passing along.

  I was not aware that the Pledge was dropped from LP membership cards as he reports below. Does anyone know when/how this happened or who was responsible? I hope that we can get the Pledge back on those cards ASAP.

Love & liberty,

My card, from Feb. 2005, has nothing but the Statue of Liberty's
head, the words "Libertarian Party", and my own name and address.
