Michael Cargill from Central Texas Gunworks has agreed to speak at our event. The conversation started out as a 2nd amendment presentation, but I have met Michael a number of times and he is active in many areas. He has a free hand to stray from the topic of he feels the need.
We are not dead yet! We passed the last funding deadline without raising enough for deposits, but a couple other avenues of funding were brought up before the event was canceled. If you are considering donating to make this event happen, please do. If you are planning a donation if X, Y or Z happens, please make a conditional pledge.
We did get a ‘build it and they will come’ suggestion from one notable individual (Hello, Mr. Watkins) and we agree that it may be true, the probable cost is more than we are willing to personally guarantee. We are intending on a nominal ticket price to cover costs and a reasonable vendor booth fee. Also to cover event costs. This is not a money-making venture, but we would like to avoid too much personal out of pocket cost.
If you would be willing to commit to purchasing a $25 ticket to attend this event, please let us know. If you have already contributed, Thank You. You will be credited for tickets. It is going to be in 2/24/2018 so you can mark the date.
Every election cycle the Republican and Democrat candidates get a few months of political advertisement that non-primary parties do not get. By the time non-primary parties start their candidate selections, most people have already picked their sides and candidates for November.
After talking to many people inside and outside the Libertarian party, we decided that an awareness event may be advantageous.
We are raising $20,000 to $50,000 for an event to get all of our candidates on stage to debate. We also plan presentations by libertarian leaning personalities and other activities. The amount of money raised will determine the scope of the event. Ideally we can attract a few thousand people that would vote libertarian, but currently, aren’t because they don’t know we exist until they have already invested in the primaries with another party.
If you are planning on donating to this event, please do so quickly. With only a few months between now and the primaries, we need to reserve space and gauge interest. Early donations are greatly appreciated.
