Here is an interview of so called Libertarian candidate, Daniel Imperato, being interviewed on New York's Capital Outsider . He puts forth many unlibertarian principles. He believes the federal government should ban abortion, is anti-gay marriage, pro-Patriot act, pro-FDA and wants to create new government run charities. He wants us to go into Afghanistan and destroy their soil.

This past Saturday, Steve Lonegan was peacefully handing out flyers and holding a sign outside of one of Corzine's rally in Cape May. He was arrested, shackled, and charged with trespassing!
On January 15, 2008, the New Jersey Supreme Court granted the Libertarian Party of Central New Jersey motion to appear as "amicus curiae" (i.e. friend of the court) in a pending public records case. The motion, brief, certification and court order are at www.lpcnj.org/OGTF/HobokenAmicus.pdf

While things have seemed to be quiet over the last few months we have moved forward with a few projects I would like to update you on, especially as we move into what I think will be a very exciting election year.
