raquel-okyayDear friends,

We are so excited to announce that the LPF will host its first U.S. Senate Primary race in LPF history! On election day in November, there will be a 3-way race between the winners of the Libertarian, Republican and Democratic Parties, respectively, and it’s our job to make sure that every voter in the Sunshine State is made aware of this historic primary on Aug. 30.

One of the biggest problems we face as a political party, is that the rest of the world doesn’t know we’re here. We practically beg for media attention, but the main stream agenda is to promote the 2-party system. How do we change that? We hit the streets: talk to our families, friends, neighbors and colleagues about the LPF and our candidates. We get involved with our local affiliates and work in a unified way to build the party.

The momentum is with us! The time to act is now!

The Libertarian Candidates are (listed in alphabetical order): Augustus Invictus (www.InvictusForSenate.com), a criminal defense attorney from Orlando, and Paul Stanton (www.Stanton2016.com), an IT specialist from Daland. For more information about their campaigns, please link to their websites.

For Edition IV we bring you the second part of Ryan Ramsey’s “Prohibition and Gun Control”, “The Fallacy of Social Justice” by Charles McMillan, and “The Arrogance of Power” by Tom Regnier. Tom is a long-time friend of the LPF and former editor of its newsletter. His powerful speech (reprinted in The Quill) was delivered to the Florida Constitution Revision Commission in Orlando on Sept. 4, 1997.

Exclusive to The Quill, you don’t want to miss my story “The Libertarian Party of Florida is ON FIRE!” about the party’s national convention in Orlando last month.

We are also happy to announce the advancement of two Associate Editors at The Quill; Amanda Gluck and Brandi Alexandra. Congrats and thank you!

As always, we are taking article submissions from Florida Libertarians on topics of interest to Florida Libertarians for publication at The Quill. Submit your 550-650 word articles to news@lpf.org. State affiliates can submit event calendars and reports for publication as well.

On a somber note, we are very saddened by the sudden death of LP Presidential Candidate Dr. Marc Allan Feldman. R.I.P. #ThatLibertarian
