KARL HESS Perfectly Consistant

  • Antigovernment

i:? Self Reliant

  • A Free Marketer

"The free market is what binds all my thoughts together." The Internal Revenue Service has a 1 00 percent lien on any and all future wages and property.

  • Married Therese in 1 9 71 .

" Without any equivocation -and I guess that's my posi­tion statement -nothing is as important as our relation­ship. Not even the entire universe, as far as I'm con­cerned. Given a choice between the existence of the universe and our being able to be together, I would unhesitatingly say, 'Let the universe fend for itself.' "

  • Libertarian Party News Editor.

Is the Future of the L.P. Worth $1 to You?

Ifit is, please consider the special offer we'd like to make you. It's an offer that allows you to produce the growth vital to the future of an organization you've committed both time and money to, the Libertarian Party. Many strategies have been proposed for Libertarian success. The National L.P. is actively producing T.V. and radio ads. The California L.P. recently was successful in a direct mail campaign to increase their membership. Colorado Springs activists are arranging a local phone number to increase involvement in their area. All of these strategies revolve around one common theme: In order to be successful we must !:>ring more people into the movement. In order to bring more people into the L.P. we must present our ideas 3-5 times, before we can attract the interest of the average American. When the Colorado Libertarian Party made a special purchase of 600 copies ofLiberty Reclaimed -A New Look At American Politics, we had a new strategy develop. But first let me tell you about the book. Liberty Reclaime-d is wtitten by Jim Lewis, the 1986 L.P. Vice Presidential candidate. This book is an incisive intro to Libertarian thinking and the value of the free market. In the final 4 of its 81 pages, Jim has listed books and organizations with which the reader can continue to learn about the Libertarian philosophy. Now consider a strategy that sends 600 Coloradans a copy of this book along with a Question & Answer brochure on the Party. Firstly, this is name recognition for the party. Of these 600, perhaps V2 will read the book, which in itself is a success. Of these 300 we can expect an immediate response of 10-15 new Libertarian activists. But the benefits don't end here. We've broken the ice with 600 new people. 600 Coloradans who we will contact 6-8 more times between now and the 1988 elections. Coloradians faced with the difficult choice in "88" of whom to vote for. This, combined with the other strategies, give the L.P. a great chance to make headway in 1988. So here's our special offer. You send us a $1 contribution along with the name and address of a person you would like to receive a copy of Liberty Reclaimed. We'll send that person a $1.96 paperback copy and a Q & A brochure with your name and best wishes enclosed. Ifyou send us 10 names and $10 we will also send you a copy for your collection. And ifyou really want to spread our ideas, send $25 and we will send the 25 people on your list a copy and will also send you a copy ofLiberty Reclaimed and a $12.95 hardbound edition of Restoring the American Dream by Robert Ringer. Enclosed for your convenience is a business reply envelope. Please make checks payable to the Colorado Libertarian Party, and don't forget to include the names and addresses you want the book mailed to. Thank You Doug Anderson C.L.P Membership CliPboard -February, 1987
