VIRGINIA REPUBLICAN LIBERTY CAUCUS SUCCESS WITH OPH
Republican Liberty Caucus members in Virginia enjoyed a big success recently
with an Operation Politically Homeless (OPH) booth at the huge -- over
10,000 attendees! -- Republican Party of Virginia state convention, May 29
to 30, in Richmond.
"At certain points, the booth was so busy it was very hard to keep up with
the demand," reports Aaron Biterman of the Virginia RLC. "The response to
the booth was overwhelmingly positive."
The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) is an organization working to promote
the libertarian ideals of individual liberty, limited government, and free
enterprise within the Republican Party.
OPH is the acclaimed Advocates outreach tool that, by using the Quiz and
other material, transforms an ordinary ho-hum political booth into a
crowd-drawing, fun *event*.

members of the Virginia GOP. According to Biterman: "This was the first time
the World's Smallest Political Quiz was used at Virginia GOP Convention. I
was surprised to see how many folks who took the Quiz landed in the
'libertarian' quadrant. There were even some delegates who joined me at
100-100, the far top of the chart.
* Excellent publicity for the RLC and the ideas of liberty, thanks to the
amazing drawing power of OPH. OPH once again demonstrated its ability to
catch eyes and draw crowds.
* Popularity. Biterman notes, "The response to the booth was overwhelmingly
* Professional educators were impressed, too. Biterman: "Several teachers
commented that they would be presenting the chart to their students."
The dots on the RLC's OPH chart (see photo) definitely shows strong interest
in the ideas of liberty among the attendees.
Congratulations, Virginia Republican Liberty Caucus!
