The Libertarian Advantage (Op-Ed)

Op-ed by Alexis Lerch


There has been a lot of discussion about libertarian infighting lately as our party grows and tries to define exactly what a libertarian is.  To some in our party this is concerning as it may turn off the new recruits or prospects that we need to grow.  Conflict is inevitable especially in a party with such a broad spectrum of ideas and beliefs.  Is that a bad thing?  I don’t think so.  I think it’s our greatest strength.

Petition Drive for Drew G. Miller (deadline 8/1/17)

Statewide Petition Drive

The Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania needs your help petitioning its statewide judicial candidate on the ballot. Drew G. Miller of Pittsburgh is running for Judge of the Commonwealth Court.
We need to collect 2,500 valid signatures on our minor party nomination paper from registered voters throughout Pennsylvania by August 1. This translates to 4,000 to 5,000 raw signatures to give us a reasonable buffer if some signatures are challenged. Our signature drive will be all volunteer this year.

Will you help? Memorial Day and July 4th public events (parades, fireworks, etc.) where there are a lot of people in one place are excellent times to collect signatures efficiently.  Even carrying a nomination paper around for a week getting signatures from your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers would be immensely helpful.
