Today I want to talk about why it’s important to believe that we can actually win. First, if we don’t believe we can win, how are we ever going to be able to convince anyone to vote for us?...

The key to this is to have a long term vision with short term goals. The Republicans and Democrats have people within their organizations who have been running and helping out on campaigns for 20, 30, 40 years. There is a lot of institutional and experiential knowledge within those organizations. We are building a solid foundation here in the Libertarian Party.
To do this we have to make a commitment that we will persevere. The definition of commitment is the elimination of all other alternatives. We have no choice but to keep running for office, to keep volunteering on campaigns, to keep up the pressure on the authoritarians and to do this with the understanding that one day we will be successful. Guess what happens? We get excited and our excitement rubs off on others.
The last time a Libertarian was elected to state office was in the year 2000 in New Hampshire. The next time might be this November, it might be next November. Our time is coming. The rise of the Libertarians is happening and it’s happening now!
It’s happening because of you, because of me, because of every libertarian around the world taking positive action to advance our cause. It’s happening because we are making it happen. Economic liberty provides an environment that allows for increased prosperity. Personal liberty provides an environment that allows for creativity and innovation. Only through libertarianism will humanity be able reach our full potential.
That’s my message for today. Thank you for watching. My wish for you, is that you take action to advance the cause of liberty, peace, and prosperity. Because it is a fact that we have a better way regardless of what anyone else says. Now let’s go tell the world. Have a great day, we’ll see you soon.
