Libertarian Skeptics Network: New L.P. Caucus Formed
The new year brings with it a new effort inside America’s third-largest political party. Seeking to connect the principles of liberty to their Enlightenment heritage, and defend the Libertarian Party from entanglement in disreputable fringe issues, dozens of activists and candidates from around the nation have come together to form a new caucus: the Libertarian Skeptics Network. Taking their cue from Voltaire, L.S.N. has adopted as its motto: “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.”
A five-member provisional board has been constituted, consisting of Andy Craig (LP-WI); Andrew Lea (LP-NV); Pearce Holland Barnum (LP-TX); Mike Warren (LP-IN); and Jason Weinman (LP-NV). State chapters are also being chartered, with a rapidly growing list of a dozen states already represented in the organization.
“Our provisional board will lay the groundwork for our first real meeting and election of officers, to be held at the Libertarian National Convention in Orlando, May 26-30.” says provisional chair Andy Craig, “We intend to make L.S.N. a regular presence at every national convention going forward, and in all 50 state parties.”
