next LPNews will start hitting mailboxes in a week. This ½ page ad is the
starting gun for a full on debate about the role of the Libertarian Party of
the United States of America in the coming political revolution that we are
just starting to see the beginnings of.
have been a libertarian freedom activist for over a decade in a half and have
been a close witness to the results of the current path the LPUS has been on
for most of that time, and have engaged in advocating active engagement against
the ‘Bad Guys’ on a national level while demonstrating what can be done on a
local level that regularly has had national effect.
2004 Libertarians from around the country were first introduced to what me and
my supporters thought would be the most productive direction the LPUS should
take. The effort for National Chair in 2004 was our introduction at the
convention in Atlanta
and was the beginning of our current effort. The production of the Western
Libertarian Alliance newspaper that was distributed then was an example of opinion
and ideas that would encourage the freedom movement towards the effective
advancement of freedom. The complete newspaper in PDF can be read here http://westernlibertarian.org/paper/WLA%20Complete%2032pg%20low%20res.pdf
2006 it was very clear that the Libertarian Party of the United States of America was no
longer an effective tool in the advancement of freedom. The most productive
individuals, generous benefactors, state Libertarian Parties and organizations
were not being served by the LPUS’ existence. Coordinated efforts to strip the
LPUS of its most effective traits did more damage and left the field wide open
for a filling of the void only months later by Ron Paul’s campaign (which I
strongly support as another very effective mind freeing effort that serves us
all). Again, I did my best to make my positions very clear in an off Presidential
Election year. I hoped to gain even more credibility by being very clear about
what I saw was in our near and distant future and what the choices were that
needed to be made and why. My message going into, and at, that convention was… http://www.strike-the-root.com/61/hancock/hancock1.html
efforts, and those of my supporters, for the May 2008 Denver LPUS Convention is
to make it very clear what we envision the role of the Libertarian Party to be in
order for it to have very powerful influence in the advocacy and the attainment
of liberty. My personal efforts, and those of others that share my goal of
individual freedom, have demonstrated the ability to have an international
impact using the uncompromising freedom message so closely associated with
libertarianism and the Libertarian Party. But the association of freedom
advocacy with the Libertarian Party is quickly fading and the use of the LPUS
as an effective tool in the coming revolution between America’s ears is rapidly diminishing.
learn of my personal motivations for seeking this particular office of
potential importance and what will be accomplished should I gain the support of
the majority of Libertarians attending the national Convention.
that know me and have worked with me on past efforts,… I ask that you please
take the time to endorse my effort here http://ernesthancock.org/Endorsements.htm
We have just completed the formatting needed and I hope that you would take the
time to provide potential supporters with information that you think they
should be made aware of as they begin to view my site for information about the
National Chairmanship of the LPUS after the publication of the above ad.
year we are doing our best to make sure that each delegate is fully informed of
their choices before the convention with mailings and video productions. I may
be contacting some of you for a short interview to help make several points
that I feel are important. At the convention we will bring the expected
enthusiasm (and show) that has come to be associated with Arizona Activism.
the end, no matter what the vote totals are, it will be very clear what
direction the Libertarians in Convention have chosen and why. It is this
information that is of the greatest value to so many that have invested so much
at a time so critical.
