RE: Why Libertarians Should Target Millennials

Ok. Where do the 25-35rs hang out? Any ideas on how to target market them? Are we after "family people" or single professionals/career people? And any specific plans for college campus activity? Surely you aren't waiting until the LP "establishment" makes a move, right? Do you see any value of working with the Mises Caucus and Michael Heise?

In either case, you are 100% correct in reaching out to this group. I "ran into" Ron Paul at 31 (in 1987) and EVERYTHING CHANGED. On so many different levels, I can testify as to the truths you bring forth.

Sort:  

I mean, I probably won’t go into specific tactics since my job depends on it. But I’m always open to hearing about more specific methods of doing this.

Well, to be straight up with you... and speaking from over 40 years experience, we don't want to discuss all the ideas out here in "public". Some things, for sure are fine... in the hopes we attract "young talent" who likes this Vocation and can't stand the thought of selling out for 30 pieces of silver to the jackAss or Elephant.... but is presently stuck thinking there is NO WAY to make a living as a manager in the LP. Seeing our activity "in the news" will show them Adam's team is different than the 47 years of LP LOOOOZERtarianism. There is no reason a "Ron Paul Revolution" style offense can't be manifested within the LP, right? Sadly, Ron's efforts were totally wasted within that god-awful GOP tent; suffocated under a pile of dung.

So, first step is to create some sort of "dugout" where you and Adam can invite people in via references from people you have met personally. Even if we just communicate via email with the cc' and replyAll... old-school, is fine. [email protected] Adam reads (and on occasion responds) to my letters.

Second, is to figure out how we can create paid-positions to keep your staff active during the 2 year cycle.... Their job is to seek and seed. Find Kokesh clones and get them active. Recruit manager types, too. I know Adam and the rest of the AnarchoCapVols cringe at the idea of "professional politics"... as I realize the goal is to make them obsolete. However, I keep repeating: Ballots or Bullets; pick one to make a change in governance. Statists never reach a plateau of happiness; they always go the that next level of brutality. We still have a chance to stop and wrest power from them peacefully...

At first, I was happy just working the prospect of getting Adam on that debate stage in 2020. But now that he is on a quest to purge the LP, we have a chance to achieve more IF the state parties follow suit. That is the stuff we can talk about in private.....

Agreed. But I certainly wouldn't call one of the goals a "purge" of the LP. We just need to encourage libertarians to join the LP. Right now, the vast majority of libertarians don't participate in the Libertarian Party, which I think is silly, or even the work of cointelpro-type actors to try to keep non-statists out of the electorate.

precisely. Yet, you don't want to call what is necessary, A PURGE? How about a TOILET FLUSH? Would that serve us better? Drain the Swamp was already taken. Sorry.

Who wants to come to a nice meal being served on dirty dishes by waiters with the flu? hmmm? You think their... er, our refusal to return has been "silly"? What is the point of saddling onto a ride where only castrated "yes men" have been welcomed? The way the LP has been until Kokesh flexed hard back in January, it seemed better to me to build libertarian towns, cities and villages... maybe even counties with Independents (NPAs) and a PAC. Are you aware of what is taking place RIGHT NOW in Frostproof, FL?... and Vice Mayor Martin Sullivan?

CLEAN HOUSE... before you expect libertarians to return; once bitten, twice shy. And Adam seems fine with that task. We don't need to pussyFoot around this dire need; he's not. Why are you?

And I believe Michael Heise will put his Mises Caucus behind the effort if y'all can come to terms you both feel comfortable with "going public" about.

and yes. Larken Rose does seem a bit "over the top" with his stance against putting the American electoral forum to good use. Me thinks he protesteth too much. I have seen, first hand where men with past IRS issues, sell out to their massah for "mercy"... being assigned to destroy the LP where needed. He is not above suspicion. He really started to squeal once I posted this on his Steem postings.... I hear, and smell a rat!

...as did that "kafka84 jackOff. I hit a nerve with the both of them.

I have much faith in Michael Heise but so far the Mises Caucus, and Adam's campaign for that matter, are unknown quantities. We'll learn much more at the national convention this year.

We could make them "known" in Libertavia in about 20 minutes. Pay Ron Paul to do a 60 second commercial.

That's not how it works. They need to seat delegates.

Are we not talking about delegates for the nominating convention... which will take place in '19? So, making these 2 "entities" known in time to have a broad effect on the nomination would be served quite well by said advertisement. But dude. I'm not here to argue with you. I make presentations. Take them for what they are worth.... or not.

Mr. Farmer: See my comment in this posting regarding the ad space idea.
