Constitution Day

Monday September 17th is Constitution Day! Put up your flag to commemorate the signing of the Constitution by our libertarian founders in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787. Presented to the public on 9-28-1787, it was not ratified by the states until almost a year later on 6-21-1788 when it became effective. This short inspired treatise establishes that government's purpose is to serve its citizens. Let's cherish and safeguard this constitutional republic with the work we do in the Libertarian Party.

Letter from State Chair

With the November General Election fast approaching, there are a lot of exciting things happening in the Libertarian Party of California that I want everyone to be aware of. Since the beginning of the year the number of registered Libertarian voters has increased by 1.2% while the registered Republicans have decreased by 1.2%, and the registered Democrats have decreased by 0.5%. The Libertarian Party is the ONLY party that has experienced growth this year out of ALL the parties! So now is the time we really need to support our candidates.

LP Registration

Alaska, Colorado, Nevada...California? What do those first three states have in common? They have reached the 1% threshold for registered Libertarians. Could we be next? Only if each county makes an effort to reach its 1%. Currently, Ventura County has 3440 registered Libertarians, or .79% of the 433,496 total registered voters in the county. We need to reach 4334 registered LP voters, an addition of 894 liberty leaning independents. Can't be done anytime soon? Well, think back and remember how the Gary Johnson campaign added 1000 to our rolls.

Repeal the Gas Tax

Reform California, headed by Carl DeMaio, is working hard to repeal the latest gas tax. Knowing we already pay one of the highest gas tax rates in the nation, he and his organization collected nearly one million signatures to get this proposition on the ballot for November.  This is a big opportunity for the Libertarian Party to make some noise and align ourselves with others who share our concerns about California's legislators. Those in opposition are citing doom and gloom if this proposition passes, but it's another "tea party" situation. There's plenty of money to fix our roads; it's just not going where it should. Make a commitment to get this proposition passed. Go to the website for more information: gastaxrepeal.org. Get on the mailing list. Purchase a lawn sign. Slap on a bumper sticker or, with permission, put the sticker on a gas pump. Spread the word. Contribute. eform California, headed by Carl DeMaio, is working hard to repeal the latest gas tax.

If you really want to make a difference - email info@lpvc.org for more information.

WELCOME JAMES

Last Month's Meeting: Appreciating Aaron

Ottavio's Italian Restaurant was the setting for our Quarterly Business Meeting last month. Nearly 20 were in attendance to hear midyear officer reports and plan upcoming events. But the main focus was our guest speaker, member Aaron Starr, who spoke of his attempts to move his local (Oxnard) City Council toward financial accountability. Aaron's efforts for the past few years have been so successful and so impressive that the LPVC Executive Committee voted to present him with a Certificate of Appreciation for putting Libertarian principles into action.
