"First, sign this oath!?"
The LOP Agenda, What should be done?
Open the Party! To diverse principles. To political thinking. To effective campaigns.
Libertarians for an Open Party was founded in 1999.
We demand an effective political party. We demand Equal & Open membership for "minarchists".
We recognize the harmful importance of requiring the anarchist oath.
We shall find and enlist 1,000 people who will each become $1,000 lifetime NLP members if the oath is removed. We thus prove the idea to remove the oath is literally "worth a million dollars"!
Read more about the Million Dollar Idea, see the list of pledges, read the resolution and sign up yourself!
We, too, are Libertarians. We provide a home for all the outcast Libertarians who have not signed the oath. When the oath says "leave", we say "Welcome. Don't leave over such nonsense! Instead, join with us to build an open party."
We openly encourage people to join the Libertarian Party-- and to not sign the (anarchist) oath.
We promote contributions to Libertarian candidates and organizations which are committed to an open party. We openly support a suggested list of these.
We suggest a general rule-- contribute to organizations which do not exclude you from membership.
We ask, "why would you contribute to a party which denies you equal membership? why would you contribute to a candidate who supports this denial?" We've never heard a good answer.
