Featured article: Document:Letter 20 Jan 1993 David Nolan on Meaning of Membership Pledge

Nolan's Signature

Letter to David Aitken from David Nolan postmarked January 20, 1993 with return address of "The Nolans, 26502 Montiel, Mission Viejo, CA 92691."

David Aitken writes, "Dave, Your comments would be appreciated. Tnx Dave Aitken." with regards to the following except being used in Colorado Liberty newsletters:

"I hereby certify that I do not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving political or social goals."

What does the pledge on the membership form mean? We ask our members to disavow the initiation of force. This does not mean that you cannot defend yourself; you DO have a right to defend your life, liberty, and property...

You Can Help!

Go here for a crash course on simple wiki editing. Don't be afraid to make a mess at first -- getting the information here is the hard part. You or someone else can tidy things up later.

Here are ways you can jump right in:

  • Check your state party article. Is it up to date? Do you know information about its history or some of its past chairs, officers, and the like that can be added? Do you have information on a topic listed on one of these lists? Can you think of things to add to one of those lists?
  • Find an identified needed article with a red link, click here for a list of missing but linked to articles, or create your article as shown below.
  • Refine an article stub into something more complete,
  • Update one of these articles,
  • Or simply tidy up an article in this category.

If you don't have access to any records, you can use the Internet Archive to search for information posted on the web since 1996. A hopefully helpful guide is located here.

You can decorate your user page with Wikipedia-style userboxes.

Use the Search Box

Use the search box at the upper right corner of any page to go directly to a page if you know its name, or to find articles that contain a specific phrase. If the phrase you enter is the name of a page, you'll get that. If you instead want a search for all articles containing that phrase, choose the "containing" option that appears below the box.

Note: By default, only the main collection of articles will be searched. This does not include the historical documents (pages whose names begin with "Document:"). You can chose which types of pages to include in your search using the advanced options menu which appears at the top of the search results. You can also change your own default selection for future searches.
