         With an extended effort by Chairman Dan McGuire
      and FSP Activist Tim Condon (of Florida), the RLC
      New Hampshire has won our yearly membership-growth
      contest. Florida gained more members (27) than any
      other state, but New Hampshire growth was higher
      relative to their state's population.
          The "prize" is special consideration for hosting
      the 2006 RLC National Convention, although they
      may defer to Florida for that honor.

        Thanks for the info.

        I ran a total, and it appears that we are a national organization with a
        total of 1410 members, about 21.5% of which are in Texas.
        We are so few in number that it is not in our interest to advertize the
        figure.
        What, then, are our prospects for any action that will materially
        advance the cause of liberty?
        The only group that I know of that has small numbers and makes much of
        an impact is media writers and producers.

                 The only place in America (not to mention the world) where the RLC has a real chance to make real changes in the politics and political atmosphere is in New Hampshire, the Free State. And it is because libertarians are slowly but surely moving into the state, where virtually of them become political activists "on the ground" (thanks to the Free State Project statement of intent). I do not see any realistic chance of making any real inroads elsewhere in the United States until there can be a clear demonstration of the beneficial results of individual freedom. That's why I'm devoting all my political, organizational, and financial time and energy to the FSP. For a more passionate explanation of the above, see my article, "LISTEN, Libertarian!" at http://www.sierratimes.com/05/10/09/24_94_97_221_77909.htm.

          "We began in 1945 an astonishingly clear social experiment: We divided the city of Berlin, the country of Germany, the continent of Europe, indeed the whole world, and we had a test. On one side was the socialist model that says society is best run by edicts, issued from a coterie of experts from above. The American model, on the other hand, called for a maximum dispersal of decision-making and information markets allocating wealth and opportunity. The results are clear: We are here, they are not....Today there are more Marxists on the Harvard faculty than there are in Eastern Europe."  George F.
