I am that Libertarian

The only chance my children and grandchildren have for a peaceful world is to have a just world. The country's institutions and standards are failing us all through government overreach into personal lives (foreign and domestic) and the lack of responsibility accepted by a people with shrinking pride and  personal authority. All freedom loving people must all stand up and be counted together as individuals.

The Duopoly of DeRp must be broken. The best way to invoke change is at the local grass roots level. I urge everyone to get involved with whatever time they can spare to help advance the cause of liberty.

    The 2018 LPO Convention - much more important than National.

    2018 LPO Convention


    2018 is sure to be a great year for the Libertarian Party of Ohio. With ballot access restored we will have some great opportunities and candidates for the next election.  

    Guest Speakers (so far) include party favorites Larry Sharpe  and Caryn Ann Harlos!  A full agenda is in the works including opportunities to meet the 2018 candidates, fellow Libertarians and leaders in the Libertarian Party. We hope all activists will join us Sunday for some important training and strategy sessions to help us build on our recent growth and success.

    The best value is the full convention, but a la carte pricing is available for the Saturday Convention, Saturday evening Banquet and Sunday activist training sessions.

    Plan to attend a special Chairman's dinner Friday Night - some exciting plans are in the works but details will be announced once we confirm our special guests.

    Contact the Holiday Inn Worthington for reservations at (614) 436-0700 and get the special rate for Friday and Saturday (May 18 & 19).  Be sure to ask for the "LPO Convention rate" to get our special block rate of $99/night for two queen beds or one king bed and help us fulfill our minimum commitment for total rooms. 

    Save up to $60 now with Early Bird Pricing!

    Unlike the old political parties the Libertarian Party of Ohio operates with an all-volunteer army of individuals dedicated to preserving the freedom and liberty of each and every individual.  But the hard truth is that competing against the entrenched parties requires money - way too much of it.  

    Our Voter Freedom Drive to gain access to the ballot in 2018 (even though we exceeded the 3% threshold required by Ohio law) will cost nearly $250,000.  And that is part of our opponents' plan - keep all our resources tied up in a citizen's basic right to vote instead of campaigning against them and their big government spending bills and restrictive ordinances. 

    Every bit helps and no donation is too small. Please consider becoming a sustaining member of the party with a monthly contribution.

    The Current Ohio Constitution:

    “I.10a Rights of victims of crime
    Victims of criminal offenses shall be accorded fairness, dignity, and respect in the criminal justice process, and, as the general assembly shall define and provide by law, shall be accorded rights to reasonable and appropriate notice, information, access, and protection and to a meaningful role in the criminal justice process. This section does not confer upon any person a right to appeal or modify any decision in a criminal proceeding, does not abridge any other right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States or this constitution, and does not create any cause of action for compensation or damages against the state, any political subdivision of the state, any officer, employee, or agent of the state or of any political subdivision, or any officer of the court.

    Eileen, if you are talking about Gary Harrington in Oregon, it’s a little more complicated than a guy with rain barrels on his downspouts. As I understand he was damming the river. But it certainly raises an interesting question about who owns natural resources and what right the government has to regulate it. I imagine you would even find Libertarians on both sides of that issue. I’d have to do research on the case law on this but considering eminent domain laws, I probably wouldn’t be happy.

    Keep Ohio out of our Health Care Business

    Ohio Senate Bill 91 has been introduced by Ohio Senators Michael Skindell and Charleta B. Tavares to “Provide universal health care coverage to Ohioans.” It would be disastrous for the State of Ohio and lead to more expensive and poorer quality health care.

    Solving Ohio’s Opioid Crisis

    In an attempt to reduce the rapidly rising opioid overdose issue in the State, on Thursday March 30, 2017 Ohio Governor John Kasich announced new rules to restrict prescriptions of opioids for a duration of more than 7 days (5 for children and teens).  While well intended, this rule adds only bureaucracy and inconvenience for the vast majority of affected people.  Better solutions to the underlying crisis  are available.
