Shameless Self-Promotion

I’ll be speaking at three Libertarian Party state conventions in April. I consider myself honored to be sharing the podium with people like former congressman Bob Barr, Sharon Harris of the Advocates for Self Government, Vice Admiral (retired) Michael Colley, Dr. Gerald Schneider, LNC Chair Michael Dixon, LNC Vice Chair R. Lee Wrights, Dade County GA County Executive Ben Brandon (who defeated his GOP opponent by a 2-1 margin), Jeff Edgens of the Irwinton GA City Council, Dr. Lawrence Egbert of the Maryland ACLU, LP Chief of Staff Shane Cory, Russ Diamond of PACleanSweep, Rep. Randy Hinshaw of the Alabama legislature and Thomas Firey of CATO and MPPI.

Bob Johnston indicated that the Maryland crowd was interested in my inside perspective of the 2004 presidential race and wanted my insight about running effective political campaigns. Thomas Knapp artfully combined the two issues and wrote most of the material I’ll be presenting. Hopefully, I’ll do his work some justice at all three April events. I’ll be the dinner speaker in Baltimore and speaking around lunch time in Montgomery and Atlanta.

Additionally, I was invited to speak at the Wisconsin LP Convention, but had to decline due the scheduling conflict with the Alabama LP. I thought I’d give them the plug because they were nice enough to invite me. I’ll likely be speaking in some function for the Badnarik campaign at the Texas Libertarian Party convention, too. We’re working out the details at this moment. Of course, I’ve threatened not to take this trip if the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission doesn’t back down. After all, drinking and politics go hand in hand.

Here are the links for all five conventions:

April 1, 2006 Baltimore (Dundalk), Maryland
April 8, 2006 Montgomery, Alabama
April 8, 2006 Madison, Wisconsin
April 22, 2006 Atlanta, Georgia
June 10, 2006 Houston, Texas

Hopefully, I’ll see some of you at one or more of these upcoming events.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

  1. Well, I might make it to the Texas convention…Are you sure it’s going to be in Houston? The last I saw, the location was still TBA.

  2. Nigel, as of the time I posted, the latest word was Houston, having changed recently from Wichita Falls.
