Message from the Chair – 9/29/18

The 2019 Convention planning is well underway and is shaping up to be another great gathering.The 2019 Convention will be April 5-7 and held at the Concord Crowne Plaza; 45 John Glen Drive, Concord, CA 94520.

AND this year we want YOU to pick the theme for the event! This is your opportunity to set the tone for the convention by helping us bring the speakers and events that you really want to be a part of.

The Themes so far are:

  • Let Freedom Ring!
  • Give Peace and Prosperity a Chance!
  • The Last Straw!
  • Harambe
  • Ancapistan
  • For the love of God, less taxes!
  • A Path to Liberty!
  • Libertarian is the Future!
  • NAP Time!
  • End the Liberty Drought!

Voting will be ending soon! The last day to vote or add your own theme is Wednesday, October 3rd, and you can vote as many times as you wish for only $10 per vote. Just go to https://ca.lp.org/convention/ to make your voice heard.

And while you’re there, be sure to take advantage of our special Early Bird Pricing which will only be available until the end of October. April is still a few months away, but you’ll be glad you signed up now, since those who wait will be charged more.  The convention should be the gala event of the season, where you can hear interesting speakers, meet with fellow Libertarians, help conduct party business as a convention delegate, and enjoy special activities based on the theme you helped decide on!

This will be an event you don’t want to miss, so why not save money in the process? I look forward to seeing you all there!

Yours in Liberty,

Mimi Robson

We sit for dinner at 7:30 pm with discussion or speaker after dinner. Early arrivers can toss back a drink at Hank's bar or just wait in the hotel lobby. For lingerers Hank's is always there after Uncle John's or Gil's closes. Gil's is currently undergoing renovations and should re-open soon.

This month's featured topic:

This week will be the kickoff meeting for what I hope will be a series of talks on decentralized applications of all types, helping us spot major trends as well as pick out the best applications for progressing to a more voluntarist future. This week I will lead a discussion that starts with Bitcoin/Blockchain and goes from there. The goal is to share the most useful and current information with each other and start to build a base for a grassroots decentralized local mutual benefit association that helps people participate and make use of the exploding numbers of new tools and online communities in the space, with a focus on those most voluntaryist and decentralized in their objectives and structure.

Bring a friend and make sure you RSVP!

Emergency Report

To the hypocrites who have been accusing me of bias in the performance of my duties as Southern Vice Chair:

I take your accusations seriously, and will work to sharpen my bias in favor of the Southern California membership as a whole. Officers owe the membership an even hand in the performance of their duties. To my knowledge, I have taken no official actions against any member, and have been careful to avoid speaking ill of anyone, limiting my protests to what I believe are violations of bylaws, Robert's Rules, or the non-aggression principal by Party officers in their official duties, always focusing on the conduct without ad hominum attacks. I have not held or consented to any secret trials, moved meetings for the express purpose of excluding members and muting dissent, written new bylaws without the consent of membership, sought to ban, censure or exclude any person by edict or vote, spread falsehoods about activists, interfered with relationships between members, brought any action to a judicial committee, sought to overturn the will of any affiliate as expressed in their bylaws or votes, inserted myself into the internal affairs of affiliates of which I am not a member, or impaled anyone with my pointy hat. All you my accusers have done at least one of these things, some in very recent days.

You will not cow me by your hypocritical attacks into withdrawing my support and affection for good activists and exemplary Libertarians. I will not divert our activism by bringing motions to the Judicial Committee. The members shall decide what is to be done with me or my motions at our public meetings and assemblies conducted in accordance with our bylaws, insofar as Party business is concerned. I pledge my undying loyalty to those who would obey the non-aggression principal and Golden Rule in pursuit of greater liberty and justice for all, and my eternal scorn for hypocrisy, including my own should I be so blind, so help me God or Cosmos.

To all:

Nobody is perfect. Please give me your critical feedback in good faith and not without self-examination. My door is always open to members for private consultation regarding Southern California Party business, if you will only ask. Be well.
