The Libertarian Party George Washington Caucus (the Caucus) is a national Libertarian Party Caucus which was founded on August 4, 2019 by Anthony Pellegrino, Marcus Baker, Jason Loveland, Charlie Larkin, and other Libertarian Freemasons to promote the virtues of brotherhood, charity, and responsibility within the Libertarian Party and to encourage interest in Freemasonry.

According to the Facebook page, the Caucus is "Named for our First President and esteemed brother Mason, we are a caucus within the Libertarian Party who seeks to apply the principles of Freemasonry as they apply to the profane world, through political activity when needed."

Significance of the Date

On August 4th, 1753, President George Washington was raised to the degree of Master Mason, the highest rank in Freemasonry, in his hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia, at the age of twenty-one. On the 266th anniversary of this event, the Caucus held their inaugural teleconference to reinvigorate Americans’ passion for their history, inspire the virtues of Friendship and Brotherly Love among Libertarians, and advocate for the “great experiment” of independence.

Officers

The inaugural slate of officers, ie: “the Executive Committee” is composed of a Chairman (Anthony Pellegrino), a 1st and 2nd Vice Chairman (Marcus Baker and Jason Loveland), and a Secretary who also fills the role of Treasurer (Charlie Larkin). The officers were voted into their respective positions during the Inaugural Teleconference on August 4th, 2019. In order to be nominated for an Officer position within the Caucus, a Brother must be a member of the National Libertarian Party.

Structure

The Executive Committee is the name of the body of Brothers who bear the responsibility of action for the organization. These members also exclusively comprise the Bylaws Committee, which proposes the rules which the Caucus votes to either accept or reject.
