CLUBSTERS TO BEGIN PETITION EFFORT

Posted by anonymous on July 12, 2007 at 4:51 PM

Dr. Ralph Swanson, surrounded by his law books, is at work on petition effort. He says the time to focus on Libertarian-leaning change through Direct Democracy is here.

Club users are pioneering a combination call club and petition effort to focus on issues of Libertarian interest. The model will eventually go international and follows the agenda of the LIO. The petitions under study by Clubster Ralph Swanson focus on Libertarian issues that have substantial common ground, such as MMP as pioneered by Libs in New Zealand, medical and drug small quantity decriminalization, and tax abolition with service improvement. The call club, which includes many non-Clubsters, is an informal call and e-mailing support group process that has already helped cut taxes and bring about anti-bullying measures, say users. The process can also help candidates interested in running by petition.
