Tonight the Libertarian Party of Broward County (LPBC) will meet at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott North from 6 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at 6650 North Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale. This will not be a business meeting of the local political party, however an evening for individuals to take over the common microphone to voice their opinions and create discussion - the public is welcome to attend.
The "Talk Liberty" event will offer local libertarians a platform to be heard with the goal of fostering and facilitating intriguing conversations, discuss relevant current events, plan activism ideas and local political strategies while enjoying great food and drinks in a comfortable setting. Speakers will be given up to 15 minutes to discuss their topic of choice, with an additional 15 minutes reserved for discussion and also some Q&A. The first speaker will begin at 7pm.
The LPBC is an affiliate to the Libertarian Party of Florida and meets at least once a month in Fort Lauderdale with a mission of "being served by a small, non-intrusive government that is financially responsible, administratively competent and socially tolerant." Libertarians believe they have a logically consistent approach to politics based on the moral principle of self-ownership. Each individual has the right to control his or her own body, action, speech, and property. Government's only role is to help individuals defend themselves from force and fraud.
The Libertarian Party is for all who don't want to push other people around and don't want to be pushed around themselves. Live and let live is the Libertarian way. The chair of the Libertarian Party of Broward County is Donald Sheldon of Pompano Beach.
The Libertarian Party is the third largest organized political party in the United States and has seen tremendous growth over the last two years as many Democrats and Republicans have become disenchanted with their respective parties.
