LP Membership Drive

Well, the new poll options are up, and my slogan suggestion is coming in dead last. Well, I guess a slogan like that needs a strong image to compliment it anyways, so I’m not terribly surprised.

Regardless, go on over and vote for your favorite slogan for the drive.

As a side item, I’m working with a talented artist friend to create some libertarian tees that are more pop culture and less, uh… join us or die, republicrat pigfucker. I’m a huge advocate of using humor to break the ice with potential libertarians on common issues, and this would be a great way to have pride in libertarianism while being an active advocate.

At least one shirt will be ironic in nature (Dick and Jane in helmets, smiling gleefully under a surveillance camera, saying “Hooray, big government! Don’t vote Libertarian!”) while another is planned to be a bit of throwback to pre-revolution sentiment (Crates bearing libertarian grievances being thrown from a ship “Let’s party like it’s 1773!”).

Details of when the shirts will be for sale are tentative at the moment, but I’m currently exploring several venues for production. If anyone knows of any good quality silkscreeners (in Cleveland is ideal), let me know in the comments. I’d like to keep the selling price at $10, but that’s flexible if a chunk of profits can be directed towards libertarian media projects.

But back to the LP fundraising/membership efforts. I kinda doubt they’ll come close to the 5,000 new supporters mark, as that’s a pretty hefty number considering our media visibility. I do wish them the best of luck and hope they do some complimentary internet advertising to broaden the campaign visibility.

Stephen VanDyke

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. I hope this works out, I’d probably buy one or two of each, I always need more funny t-shirts, libertarian ones would just be the icing on the cake.

  2. C. Liberty is a terrible thing to waste

    Appears to be in the lead… sigh…

    They all pretty much suck again…. None seem to embody what should be stated. To me it should shout out “people of liberty“. Or something subtle yet grand. Perhaps something colonial and revolutionary yet modern and biting.

    The choices in the poll are all pretty boring…. and C well C is just whiney… But then again mine blows too… so therein lies the conundrum… Stephen!? Can you come up with something better than D? I mean who thought that one up…. visual aids and such… like we got time! ;-)
