Featured article: D Frank Robinson

D. Frank Robinson got in on the ground floor with the Libertarian Party, visiting David Nolan's living room early in 1972, chairing the Bylaws Committee for the first national convention, and being chosen as an at-large member on the first Libertarian National Committee. Also in 1972 he became the first chair of the Oklahoma Libertarian Party. In 1974 he was Director of Research for the congressional campaign of his former boss, Republican Mickey Edwards, whose slogan was "Take a bite out of big government." Edwards fell just short of a massive upset of the incumbent and would win the seat in '76 but by that time Frank had parted ways with him over ideological differences. By 1980 the OKLP was a recognized party on the ballot for the first time.

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 This does not include the historical documents (pages whose names begin with "Document:").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.

More Ways 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.
