Many of you know our Executive Director, Kevin Gaughen.

What many probably don’t know is just how much personal effort he has put into our party’s efforts! Many of you will be receiving a post card alerting people of the constitutional amendments on the ballot on primary day.

The post card explains what the amendments are about, and then it encourages everyone who is not a Republican or a Democrat to go and vote on the amendments. In addition, there are 4 special elections around the state, and for those people living in those districts, there is another post card message about our candidates who are on the ballot. (So please be sure to head out to vote!)

Kevin has been working hard, and he has been donating his own money to make these initiatives successful, and he has been doing a wonderful job bringing people to the party, bringing in donations, and now, he is informing voters about these amendments on the ballot. I am proud and honored that he chose to work with us for the past two years, Thank You Kevin!

Sincerely,

Steve Scheetz

Join or Renew Membership - Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania

To those of you who are thinking of buying a membership in the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania, I am going to offer my standard lifetime pitch, right now! The LPPA, and everything our volunteers have accomplished is what matters.

The better part of a decade ago, I arrived at the conclusion that I was going to purchase a Lifetime membership at the National level. I didn’t realize it at the time, but my reasoning for buying that Lifetime Membership was to keep me from rage quitting, and in that, denying the resources to those committees working on those projects I believe in. I did it at the state level for nearly the same reason. There are people of different philosophies who populate volunteer positions within the party, and in reality, regardless of whether or not we disagree on some point of philosophy, we are all Libertarians, and we all want to see the world set free in our lifetime.

With this in mind, no matter who is in charge, whether you like them, or not, it is the party that matters. It will exist after all of us, and yet, only members are really able to shape the direction of the party as it moves forward.

What I am asking, every Libertarian who is not already a Lifetime Member in the LPPA, is that you step up, become a Lifetime Member, and drive some membership to our convention, to our county affiliates, come work with us in our standing and working committees, and help the party succeed. Up for that challenge?

For far too many Pennsylvanians these days, they are working so much more than in the past due to an ever increasing burden of taxation, monetary devaluation and loss of opportunities. Far too many of us are walking on a razor’s edge struggling to keep the lights on, food on the table and not have your home taken from you due to an ever increasing property tax rate. A dollar buys so much less today than it did even 10 years ago. It’s something we all know and can feel. Meanwhile, the government will tell you that you aren’t paying enough already, or that you’ve increased the value of your home (using your own, already taxed money) so you must pay more in yearly property taxes because you might be able to realize a slight increase in resale value, at some point in the future, which they will also tax. It is, in a word, outrageous.
Before Ed Rendell got gambling legalized in Pennsylvania in 2006, he promised that he would use proceeds from gambling in Pennsylvania towards property tax relief. 2004-71 HB 2330 (Otherwise known as Act 71 of 2004) was intended to direct the majority of proceeds from legalized gambling in the form of casinos, slot machines and table games (as of 2010) towards property tax relief for Pennsylvanians. Pennsylvania casinos set a revenue record for 2017 as a whole, generating $3.227 billion in revenue. In 2014, PennLive.com reported: “On average, $187 was knocked off most homeowners' tax bills. At the same time, Pennsylvanians' overall property tax burden increased by about 12 percent over five years. So that $187 break represents a smaller chunk of the tax bill as time goes on.” That was over 6 years ago. Things have not improved with the current tax –and-spend democrats and republicans in the PA State Assembly. Pennsylvania is the second-largest casino market after Las Vegas in terms of gross revenue and No. 1 in taxes collected. Pennsylvania collected about $1.4 billion in casino taxes last year. A little more than half goes to property tax relief and wage tax reduction in Philadelphia. The rest supports the state budget, local governments, civic development and tourism, volunteer fire departments and the horse racing industry. NOT property tax relief, unless you live in Philadelphia. That is not what we were told in 2004. That’s not what they are telling us still.
As the Libertarian candidate for Senate here is District 48, I want to see that change. The people on this district, and the rest of the state, are over-taxed. Gov. Tom Wolf’s 2021 budget is calling for increases in state income taxes, property taxes and potentially sales taxes. I believe that we can find non-partisan ways to reduce wasteful spending drastically without impacting essential services. And that by cutting that spending, begin to fulfil the promises made by previous administrations of real, meaningful property tax relief.
That is why I am asking for your vote in the Special Election for the vacant seat in the PA Assembly for District 48 on May 18. I will always work FOR you, THE PEOPLE of Pennsylvania, not special interest groups and corporate cronies.

02/25/2021

The Republican Party refusing to accept responsibility for its own loss demonstrates its lack of character. The GOP's behavior should be at the top of this list with nothing else under that.

No one is entitled to votes. No one is entitled to win an election. If you want votes, EARN them.

Leaked from the Forsyth County GOP, who have apparently learned nothing.

Notice how they manage to blame Shane Hazel and Libertarians 4 times, and mention Trump and themselves last.

Also, notice they don't mention Democrats.

You know, the ones who won.

There's a reason why they don't mention Dems, which is the same reason Dems don't blame Republicans when they lose.

It's also why they don't blame the plurality of eligible voters who don't vote:

The losing side's job is to shame those who vote for better options, in order to keep their con game going.

Put aside R and D rhetoric, and their policies are the same: massive expansion of government into every aspect of our lives, and massive handouts to the cronies who put them in office.

This thieving system they've built is only kept afloat by keeping people from voting for better candidates.

That's why they do the "lesser evil" good cop bad cop routine, to make you feel like you just HAVE to vote for them, or else that dastardly "greater evil" will win.

That's why they put up "liberty Republican" and "progressive Democrat" controlled opposition candidates to present the theater of struggle within their parties. Notice that those "renegade" politicians always seem to bend to the will of their party leadership whenever they're needed.

Rand, AOC, Bernie, Trump. They're rip-roaring mad and they're not gonna take it, until the very second they're told to take it.

And eventually they know many voters will see their con for what it is and burn out. And that's fine with them, as long as you don't vote. Then you're neutralized.

But when you vote Libertarian, when you vote to end their monopoly on electoral politics, you vote to end their thieving system, and that horrifies them.

You have to be shamed.

You have to blamed.

You have to be labeled the problem.

Because you are.

You are their greatest problem: freethinkers who are voting to kick them out of office, dismantle their racket, and take your power back.

Keep crying GOP and Dems, we're just getting started.

General information

The Libertarian Party is the most principled political party in the United States, and we hope you will learn more about us by visiting www.lppa.org. You might already be a libertarian and not yet realize it! Many people are understandably disenchanted with the Democrat and Republican parties. The Libertarian Party consistently champions our nation’s founding principles of individual freedom, political liberty, and limited government. We fight relentlessly for government to abide by its primary mission of protecting our rights and functioning within the boundaries of the U.S. Constitution. We are the only real alternative to Democrats, Republicans, Liberals, and Conservatives who continue eroding our personal and economic freedoms at all levels. If you are: Angry about corrupt politicians who behave as though they are above the law Frightened that government bureaucrats will be dictating and rationing your health care Concerned about exploding government spending and ruinous debt Tired of bailing out the incompetent but politically connected Worried about the continuing erosion of privacy, economic freedom and social liberties Upset by politicians (both D and R) who say whatever they think will get them elected, and then do whatever they want once in office. . . You can do something about these serious problems. Join us today and help build the vibrant, voluntary society of individual freedom and responsibility that our founding fathers intended.

After this past general election I changed my party status to Libertarian. Am I able to vote in the upcoming June primaries?
It's my personal opinion as a libertarian, but I think that people should seriously consider Barb Wevadou as a strong conservative candidate for the Judge of Perry county and Juniata county. From my interactions with her, she fits our views as much as a conservative can. Please look into her and weigh her as an option over Andy Bender. Thanks
“My work on the farm has taught me how to convince large, unruly animals how to do what’s right, rather than what they want in that moment,” he said. “That may come in especially useful in the General Assembly.”
Via PennLive.com "Republican Christopher Gebhard, 46, of Lebanon County, did not participate in the debate. The president and CEO of an insurance and risk management firm said in an email sent to PennLive on Wednesday morning that he had a scheduling conflict and was unable to participate. “The Senate Majority Leader [Kim Ward, R-Westmoreland County] was the guest in Lebanon and I needed to attend that event,” Gebhard said." Just so we are perfectly clear, the Republican candidate is far more concerned with sucking up to the GOP Leadership than he is with listening to the people of the 48th District or answering their questions. Also, full disclosure, he NEVER even bothered to respond to the request from the LWV inviting him to the forum, or to PennLive until AFTER the story was published, and they reported on him ignoring them. 48th District, you deserve better. https://www.pennlive.com/news/2021/04/candidates-seeking-48th-senatorial-district-seat-put-their-differences-on-display.html?fbclid=IwAR2uVZ7S4-cQUY3oIgRneD-oX0gXkcLXv0xEaXkI83J4OKbyDtVML1ZZkxs
