LPF Convention Motion Summary

It’s time for the LPF Annual Convention.  Over the past few weeks, I’ve been looking at all of the motions being proposed for the LPF Convention.  Here’s a summary of my position on all these motions and a link to the post in which each motion is discussed:

As I said at the beginning of the post, these are my positions on the various motions.  These are not the official (or unofficial) positions of the Libertarian Party of Volusia County or the Libertarian Party of Florida’s Executive Committee.  Other people have legitimate opinions on the motions that may be different than mine.  That doesn’t mean that they are wrong, or that they are less libertarian than I am.  It just means we disagree.  Hopefully the linked posts explain why I hold the positions I do.

See you in Fort Walton Beach!
