Solutions for the Libertarian Party, part 2

“The people who go to state party conventions select themselves. If they have the time, the money, the inclination, they go. Perhaps only 10-20 % of a state party’s members attend. Since they vote on how the party will be run, only a small number of members may move the party greatly in a direction apart from the mainstream membership. There are no consequences upon those members, only the party suffers for their actions. I have no data to back this up, but I believe the average Libertarian Party member lasts two years. If they can’t change the world in that time they exit the party and leave the remaining members to clean up their mess. One thing that many organizations do is to have a minimum time members must be active before they can vote.” (09/05/23)
