THE NATIONAL COMMITTEE CANDIDATES
(Where philosophical purity and ethic standards count the most)

Chair Vote: George Phillies, 123; Elias Israel 178; Geoff Neale 261

Sorry, George, I was too busy clapping to remember to get a photo!!


After Israel concedes to avoid an embarrassing and time consuming defeat,
Geoff Neale promises to shape up the LP.  We'll be holding you to it, Geoff!!
(Former Chair Jim Lark and Parliamentarian Mary Gingell to the left;
then and current Secretary Steve Givot and Treasurer Deryl Martin to the right.)


Peaceniks Jim Madison, CT and Charles Kennedy, IN, both Elias Israel supporters,
nominate Carol Moore for Secretary.
(Charles wanted everyone to know he made the front page of the local paper. Funny hats work.)


Carol Moore gets 40 seconds to spout something about "short minutes on time" and "issues build movements" before getting the hook.  Givot really beat me this time!


LNC At Large Candidates on parade. From the left numbers 2, 5, 7 and 10 won. The other winner must be hiding behind Givot at the Podium.



JUST A FEW OF THE MANY MANY LIBERTARIANS FOR PEACE





SEEN ABOUT THE CONVENTION


The Founder of the Libertarian Party, Dave Nolan, left.
The soon to be LP chair, Geoff Neale, celebrating July 4th.
Maybe the outfit gave him that winning edge??
Luckily Geoff wasn't wearing a Burqua, or LP staffers might have thrown him out.
Read Sarah Lawrence's story about how that happened to her in Indianapolis.


Maryland and Virginia delegations.


Israel's Campaign Manager Dave Rizzo should have run for Chair.
A fun guy, he'd have my vote!

Gorman, Trinward and Gilson...three LNC troublemakers contemplate their next moves.



WHIPPING THE STAFF INTO LINE

Gilson lectures Dasbach while Winter hides from the awful truth.
(Note: Dasbach was let go and Winter already had given notice.)
 

New Chair Neale tells Getz he'll get the thumbs up if he gets him on Nightline before the end of the month.  (Ha Ha ha. As of March 2005, Neale long retired and Getz still there brown-nosing the LNC and keeping the LP OUT of the news.)


THE REVOLUTION CONTINUES

Carol Moore is the g-g-g-g-grandaughter of Colonel James Barrett, leader of the militia Concord, MA on April 19, 1775--his farm was the object of the British expedition in search of weapons.  John Buttrick is descended from Major John Buttrick, second in command at Concord.  After the British fired on the militiamen Buttrick, under orders from Barrett, gave the command, "Fire, fellow soldiers, for God's sake, fire!"
 Of course, John, being a sitting judge, and Carol, a pacifist,
seek other means to make the coming revolution.
