Campaign Update

As of June 13 Jason Scheurer and Derek DeMarco are officially on the ballot for U.S. Senate and U.S. Congress (District 8) in New Jersey. I want to thank everyone who got involved and gathered signatures on their behalf to make this happen. (See page 2 for the Honor Roll of petitioners and the initial press release for the campaign. – Editor) It was encouraging to see so many get involved.

Going forward we will need everyone's help to run the successful campaign we are planning. You can expect to be contacted shortly by me or one of our expanding staff to ask what you can do and the level of commitment you are willing to make. There will be a role for everyone who chooses to help make this campaign successful. We will need an enormous amount of help to man the events that are planned and are going to be planned for the coming months. The campaign is starting to fall into place. Thanks for all the help so far and I think we are going to make real progress this year.

Message From Steve Kubby

Dear Friends, Activists and Fellow Libertarians,

I've just returned from the Libertarian National Convention, held this past week in Denver. I know a lot of people are stunned and some are still angry that Bob Barr won. Although I am exhausted, I wanted to get a message out about where we go from here.

Your help is needed!

Just now getting in from an incredible experience at our convention in Denver. As tired as I am, I feel compelled to write because it is my opinion we have incredible opportunities to grow our party exponentially with a Barr/Root/Scheurer ticket this year. To do that we must get Jason on the ballot. We need 1200 signatures in 6 days. This is an easy accomplishment if everyone does just a little. I am asking each and everyone of you to pledge to get just 10 signatures. That's just 10 signatures from friends and family. Here is a chance to get involved with minimum effort and yet help our party grow. At the very least please respond back and let me know your level of commitment.

Christine Smith On North Virginia Patriots

Presidential candidate, Christine Smith, was interviewed by the North Virginia Patriots show.

Is Barr the New Hope for America?

There is much excitement in some libertarian circles over the entrance of Bob Barr into the race for the Libertarian Party's nomination. Even the mainstream media has been reporting his candidacy, as well as that of Mike Gravel. Based on the way these men are covered, you would have thought that the party had previously planned not to run a Presidential candidate, or that it hasn't run a candidate in every Presidential race since it's founding. Nonetheless, many are thrilled with the idea that, if we nominate Bob Barr, this press coverage could continue. Others see the Barr candidacy as an opportunity to continue the energy of the Ron Paul campaign. I believe the excitement over the Barr candidacy is misplaced, will lead to disappointment, and that Barr should not receive the LP's Presidential nomination.
