We are trying, Marc. We will keep trying to be what you described in your epic "I am that Libertarian" speech in Orlando.
What you want to be Libertarians
Anarchist no apologies success freedom Ninjas world class bad-ass Libertarians
No pain no gain get those petitions signed in the rain Libertarians
Sorry I’m not sorry Libertarians
No excuse Libertarians
Rest in peace, our friend.
The Pride Celebration is always a big time for the Libertarians. It brings us back to decades earlier when “equality” was not even an "in" word, when you better love the “right” person, when others told you who you are. Way back then, Libertarians already felt in their hearts and minds that equality is a given, and who you love is your own business. Since its founding in 1971, the Libertarian Party has held equality and individual liberty as core beliefs.
Years ago, one of our members, Michael Acree, wrote Honoring LGBTQQII Rights – And Everyone Else’s: A Libertarian Tradition. To this day, the LPSF distributes this popular brochure at Pride – and everywhere else. To this day, the Libertarian philosophy, so clearly expressed in the article, remains constant: “Pro-choice on everything – everything peaceful. The Libertarian philosophy, nicely captured in that slogan, embodies a profound respect for individual differences.” We invite you to read the entire article, in the Issues section of our website.
The LPSF booth will be located on the south side of McAllister between Polk and Larkin Streets. Thank you to the volunteers who will set up and staff the Libertarian booth at Pride this weekend June 25 and 26, 2016.
The old, fuzzy picture? Members of the Libertarian Party of San Francisco marching at Pride 2003. The one riding in the car is Michael Denny, 2003 candidate for Mayor of San Francisco. To his right wearing the white T-shirt is Michael Acree, author of Honoring LGBTQQII Rights – And Everyone Else’s: A Libertarian Tradition.
The Libertarian Party of San Francisco has once again defended its lifetime record of recommending NO votes on ballot measures, even while expecting San Franciscans to vote YES on every proposal. We Libertarians have nothing to gain by recommending NO on the tax-and-spend measures that dominate San Francisco ballots, other than maybe saving some dollars in taxes and retaining what Liberty We the People still have. Can the YES endorsers claim the same? We retired our recommendations to the website's section "Elections & Campaigns." But here is a picture of our recommendations a voter posted on the LPSF Facebook Page.
There are factions in every political party, and the LP is no exception. Referring to the convention delegates, Johnson promised to represent “everyone in this room.” That promise, the fact that Johnson has received more media attention than any other recent LP presidential candidate, and dissatisfaction withe the major parties' candidates might propel all liberty-leaning voters of all political persuasions to get behind Johnson, push him up the polls so he has a chance to get into the national debates, and vote for him in November.
C Span covered the Libertarian Party convention, and clips are on the C Span website. There are numerous articles on the Web regarding the convention; among them is one in The Washington Post which describes the issues involving the candidates well.
Gary Johnson, along with other Libertarian presidential candidates, will be on the June 7 ballot as well as the November ballot.
The Libertarian Party of San Francisco lost a friend. Sergio Klor de Alva, an enthusiastic and affable 24-year old already a veteran of political campaigns of several local office holders, was killed in a car accident on April 26. Several of us at the LPSF had the pleasure of knowing Sergio, and were uniformly impressed not only by his efficiency but also by his friendliness.
At the time of his death, Sergio was the campaign coordinator of Joel Engardio’s Board of Supervisor’s campaign. Engardio had the sad task of advising those of us involved with Sergio’s campaign work of the tragedy. He said, “I’m devastated to announce that Sergio Klor de Alva, our campaign coordinator, was killed early Tuesday morning in a car accident. This is a tragic loss for me personally and for our campaign.”
Indeed, a loss for all who knew Sergio. Friendship crosses political and partisanship boundaries. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to his family.
