      This year, the Libertarian Party is -- for the first time -- taking part
      in the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) annual conference
      as a co-sponsor. The conference will be held February 17-19 at the
      Ronald Reagan Building in downtown Washington, DC.

      A disparate group of organizations will sponsor the event, including the
      Objectivist Center, Americans for Tax Reform, the National Rifle
      Association, Regent University, National Taxpayers Union, the ACLU,
      Heritage Foundation, Bureaucrash, Log Cabin Republicans, Drug Policy
      Alliance, the College Republican National Committee and a host of
      others.

      "A prime example of the disparity of opinions in CPAC sponsors is seen
      in the fact that at this conference, there will be a discussion about
      the War on Drugs, and whether it should continue with wholehearted
      conservative support," said Libertarian Party National Director Joe
      Seehusen.

      "In the past, both sides of the debate would have been in support of the
      Drug War. The inclusion of this discussion shows that many conservatives
      are at least willing to consider a change."

      As a cosponsor of the CPAC conference, the Libertarian Party will have
      access to restricted areas and special events, will host a booth manned
      by party headquarters' staff and volunteers, and will distribute
      literature to every conference attendee -- and the Libertarian Party's
      Web site, www.LP.org, will be linked on the CPAC Web site for a year.

      "The CPAC conference is one of the biggest outreach exhibitions of
      political action groups in the DC area, and we look forward to between
      4,000 and 5,000 people attending," said Samuel New, who is organizing
      the party's activities at the conference.

      "Visitors to the LP booth will be able to join the party, make
      contributions, sign up to volunteer and get more information about the
      party. We expect to receive a number of inquiries from people who
      otherwise might not have encountered Libertarians, and to showcase
      Libertarian ideas."

      "While we aren't aligned with the political views of these other groups
      on all subjects, the other groups that are involved don't necessarily
      line up, either," Seehusen said. "By taking part in this CPAC
      conference, we hope to show that Libertarians are the true fiscal
      conservatives -- much more so than the Republicans are."

      Along with the other activities Libertarians will pursue while at the
      conference, there is also a chance that a Libertarian Party
      representative will take part in a debate regarding the Cuban trade
      embargo, but details haven't been set, New said.
