My first "Letter from the Chair" for the LP Colorado newsletter

I am honored to follow Travis Nicks as the State Chairman of the Libertarian Party of Colorado.

With both the federal and state governments taking over more and more of our lives, the LP in Colorado has a tremendous opportunity for growth.

It is our job to take advantage of that opportunity.

Each of us is an ambassador for freedom. We need to emphasize the positive aspects of self-ownership, self-determination, and yes, even rational self-interest. We should never apologize for believing in the power of the individual over the power of the state.

The negative aspects of statism, government control and bureaucratically planned economics will all be self-evident. It just takes some longer than others to come to this realization. As more and more people realize that government is not the answer, we need to be ready to provide them with the only alternative: Freedom.

The Libertarian Party is the only party that believes in freedom. We need to welcome those that believe in freedom and are looking to find a political home. We are that home.

The only one.

I ask that each of you have a discussion about freedom with a non-libertarian friend. Keep it friendly, of course. Let them know the Libertarian Party actually believes in freedom, unlike the other political parties that just give it lip-service. You probably will not convert anyone in one conversation, but you will plant the seed in their head. Planting the seed is the first step.

My goal is to have 20,000 registered Libertarians in Colorado in the next two years. We currently have close to 12,000. If each of us can convert just one person to the cause of freedom and the LPCO, we’ll make that goal and more. Much more.

I look forward to serving as your Chair. Please contact me with any thoughts or questions. My email is StateChair@LPColorado.org . My cell phone number is 303-588-2731. Let me hear from you.

And let freedom ring.

David K. Williams, Jr.
