Our Meetup is Bigger Than Your Meetup!


… or at least more generous. Over the last few weeks, the hundreds of Ron Paul Meetup groups around the country held a fundraising contest for Paul’s presidential campaign. The grand prize for the most money raised is a visit from The Man himself, Dr. Paul.

The results are in, and winner is… a tie between the Manhattan + Ron Paul Action Group NYC and the Greater Philadelphia Ron Paul Presidential Campaign.

Congratulations, everyone who contributed! I’ve had the honor of meeting Ron Paul on a couple of occasions, but it’s always a treat to hear him speak, especially now when his campaign is on such a roll.

REMINDER: The organizer of the Manhattan + Ron Paul Action Group NYC, Dr. Avery Knapp, will be the guest speaker at the Manhattan Libertarian Party monthly meeting on Monday.

    Not sure if it matters, but are there any Libertarian candidates for President?

    Would they be presenting at the ManhattanLP in the future?

    There has been some discussion on the Yahoo group , eg , http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ManhattanLibertarians/message/21430 , of having actual LP candidates present themselves too .

    > are there any Libertarian candidates for President?

    Yes, of course! 🙂 There’s a good list of them a VoteSmart, http://www.votesmart.org/election_president.php

    Select “other” under party, and there’s quite a few there, among all the alternative-party candidates. George Phillies (professor in MA), Steve Kubby (marijuana activist from CA) and Dave Hollist (“the contract insurance guy,” not listed) are probably the best-known announced candidates among Libertarians, although Kubby has pledged his support to Ron Paul as long as Paul’s in the race.
