Okay, on Wednesday, October 10th, I wrote about the Libertarian Party launching its first focused campaign to increase its membership in fourteen years called Double the LP. It is a grassroots campaign meant to do exactly as it is named –double the size of the Libertarian Party. Well, any campaign needs to have an official launch, and this one is no different.
On Friday, October 26th the official launch will be held in Fabulous Las Vegas at the Dal Toro restaurant inside the Palazzo Hotel and Casino. Libertarian Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates Gov. Gary Johnson and Jim Gray will be there and of course speaking, as well as stand-up comic Doug Stanhope, current WBC-USNBC light heavy weight boxing champion Ronald Johnson will be attending too. It doesn’t stop there though. Investor, author, and financial commentator Peter Schiff will speak via Skype as well as other prominent libertarians.
The event is free to enter, with a cash bar and is scheduled to run from 5:30pm until 10:00pm. Though I have been aware that such a kick-off was being contemplated for some time, I was not officially made aware that it was actually going to happen until this past weekend; so I apologize for the late notice. However, if you are going to be in Las Vegas, know someone who is going to be in Las Vegas, or you live in Las Vegas, and you have heard of the Libertarian Party, but do not fully understand who, or what that political party is all about, then I encourage people to attend this event to learn more, meet both Gov. Johnson and Jim Gray, enjoy the fine accommodations provided by Dal Toro and the Palazzo – as well as all of the other fun that the city of Las Vegas offers, and if you like what you see, hear, and learn, then consider joining and assisting the Libertarian Party in its efforts to grow and become a reasonable, recognizable, and respectable voice in our nation’s political discourse.
Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown. (Ross Perot)
