Libertarian registration drive

As more and more polls are indicating that voters no longer identify with the two major parties - it's a great time to get out and tell more people about the Libertarian Party of Florida (LPF)!

To encourage participation and help the Libertarian Party of Florida register more new LPF voters, the Membership Committee is hosting the LPF 2015 Voter Registration Drive with cash incentives plus media and graphic design support. Our goal is to raise LPF voter registrations by 30 percent per year before November 30!

Please join this event to receive updates, as it will be used as "Registration Drive Central" - a place where everyone can share graphics, tips and information that will be helpful to all in this registration drive.

INCENTIVES!: The Membership Committee is offering two $250 prizes. Affiliate participation is optional. The prizes will be awarded to the affiliate with the largest percentage increase in LPF Florida registrations from June 30 through November 30, 2015. If there is no established affiliate in the winning county, the money will be held until affiliation. There will be two divisions -- one Large County division and one Small County division. Large Counties will be those with over the average population; Small Counties will be those with below average population.

Thanks for all your hard work and dedication! It's a great time to be Libertarian. Tell a friend, or two, or twenty! ;)

Citizens' Rights During Police Encounters: Steve Silverman

The myth of Mercedes Marxism - It's time for Communist Cruising!

The Nation magazine invites you to cruise with them.  For only $2,000 - $7,000.

I went on TWO different week long reason magazine cruises - one to the Caribbean and one to Alaska - and got a private room (sans window or balcony) plus all meals (dinner with wine) and lectures, for around $2,000.

I do believe this is more than National Review, American Spectator, or Weekly Standard cruises as well.

Bring Clinton Cash!

We would like to invite you to join us for the Nation Cruise, this year to the Western Caribbean.For the last 17 years, our Nation Cruises have presented many of America's top progressives and their ideas to our readership, while also helping raise money to support the publication of America's oldest weekly. Whether it's a panel discussion, one on one interview, a heated debate over dinner or our ever-popular late night get-togethers, The Nation Cruise provides ample opportunity to engage with progressive leaders and your fellow Nation readers to help you stay involved, connected and on top of what is taking place in our world.
As always, we'll have a terrific line-up of guest speakers, including many of the writers and editors of The Nation. We are in the midst of putting together that list as we speak. Do watch this website for updates as we will be adding new speakers regularly over the next few months.
The Nation Cruise is a truly unique experience. We invite you to explore this website to find out all you need to know about this year's cruise. You can even book online! This promises to be another memorable adventure, one that I sincerely hope we can share with you.
Looking forward to seeing you!

New versions of the "World's Smallest Political Quiz" proliferate

Many libertarians are familiar with the World's Smallest Political Quiz, promulgated by the Georgia based Advocates for Self-Government.

Various pro-regressive and leftover groups have come up with their own versions, and earlier this year gay libertarians came up with a gay version.

Now someone has produced a new libertarian version.  So far reviews are that its topology doesn't make sense, even though it does correctly characterize most people who take the test.
