Libertarian Party announces state convention for March 18-19

Tthe Libertarian Party of Tennessee moves  one step closer to challenging the cult of the omnipotent state and championing the rights of the  individual in its annual convention, set to be held at the Manchester Coffee County Conference Center, 147 Hospitality Blvd., Manchester, Tennessee, on Friday and Saturday, March 18-19. 

“Friday night features our Gala event with esteemed guests such as Jo Jorgensen, Ricky Dale Harrington  Jr, Scott Horton, Hannah Cox, Shane Hazel and more hosted by the People for Liberty Executive Director  Dan Fishman,” said Dave Jones, chair of the Libertarian Party of Tennessee. “Lots of fun events and  general shenanigans will occur Friday and Saturday nights as well.” 

The March 19 business session will tackle the question of confirmation of interim Vice Chair Lemichael  Wilson, speeches from esteemed libertarians, feature breakout sessions on social media strategy,  firearms preparedness, an elected official panel, and more! In addition, the state party will be election  delegates to the national Libertarian Party Convention, set to take place in Reno, Nevada, on May 26-29.  The convention will also include endorsements for Libertarian candidates running for state office, such as  gubernatorial candidate Lemichael Wilson, Congressional candidate Dave Jones, state representative  candidate Nick Sawall, and others. Sunday’s session will feature additional workshops, guest speakers and votes on state bylaws changes which would alter the party’s constitutional framework. In sum, it will  be the biggest statewide Libertarian extravaganza of the year.

The Libertarian Party is the third-largest political party in America and has been growing rapidly as voters  become more disenchanted with the direction the country is going and with the policies put forth by the  Republican and Democratic parties. Started in 1971, the Libertarian Party has run on a small federal  government platform, preferring to allow local and state governments to make decisions for their  communities rather than having a large federal bureaucracy decide what’s best for Main Street.
