The Goal of any successful party is to obtain and wield political power.  For us, this is measured by these criteria:
* Electing Libertarians
* Electing liberty-leaning candidates where Libertarians are unavailable
* Influencing legislation and government policy

We shall attain success with these steps:

  1. Embrace that the foundation of liberty is the individual, and we build “Team Liberty” from the efforts of individuals
  1. Individually educate ourselves philosophically, politically and logistically on a continual basis
  1. Understand that each county affiliate is only one part of “Team Liberty”, and is most effective when it works in concert with the LPF

  1. Communicate the threats and joys of liberty, one to many, by all means such as the web, email, US Mail, signs, TV and radio

  1. Training candidates in campaign craft
