Liberty County Sheriff Nick Finch took a stand for the Second Amendment. In response, Governor Rick Scott removed him from office and had him jailed. It’s time for We, The People to stand with Sheriff Finch and let Gov. Scott know that we support Constitutional Sheriffs who uphold their Oath of Office.
Sheriff Finch will be the featured speaker at the Rally, and will have a statement for the public.
We will be holding a rally in Tallahassee on Friday, June 14, 2013 in the courtyard between the old and new State Capitol Buildings. Adrian Wyllie will host the event, and other speakers and details will be announced soon. The event is free and open to the public and media.
Gov. Scott will be formally invited to speak at the rally.

Friday, May 24th, the Naples Hilton Lounge was filled with men in suits with beautiful women by their side in cocktail dresses. The room was full of laughter and hugs as old friends were reacquainted over drinks. Cameras flashed and the dashing men looked proudly at the women who filled the room. It was a typical opening night for a political event.
This weekend, however, was not your “politics as usual” kind of event, as the cocktail party from the evening transformed into a highly organized business meeting. The tables became full of the same people from the previous night but there was a change in the women who now adorned their business suits and were ready to “get to work.” It was the women who dominated the election of officers to the Executive Committee, proving that (at least for Libertarians) politics is not a “man’s game.”
Out of the 4 Executive Officers of the Libertarian Party of Florida, 3 of them are now women. Our newly elected chairwoman, Dana Moxley Cummings; secretary, Lynn House; treasurer Danielle Alexandre; are accompanied by the only man; newly elected vice chairman, Alex Snitker.
Three women took over or retained spots on the executive committee as regional representatives. Vicki Kirkland in Region 9, Jessica Mears in Region 10 and newly elected Elsa Martinez will represent Region 12. Even the sub-committees within the LPF have had an infusion of women as leaders. Five of the nine committees will now be run by women. The Candidate, Legislative and Finance/Marketing Committee will be chaired by Danielle Alexandre. Macy John will be leading our Communications Committee and Lynn House will remain the chair of the Membership Committee.
The female persuasion laid out a plan for the direction of the LPF and it resonated with the delegation. There are new ideas for marketing, organization, structure and above all “success.” These women were well spoken and intelligent. It was a remarkable convention for strong female leaders to emerge with a strong work ethic, dedication and a plan of attack. This year the Libertarian Party of Florida dispelled the myth that only men can succeed in the political arena. The delegation voted for change in our party and not only in the way of new ideas and fresh faces but in choosing strong women to lead the charge for liberty.

The Free and Equal Election Foundation’s Final Open-Party Presidential Debate, which had originally been scheduled to be held on Tuesday, 30 October at 9:00 p.m., has been postponed until Monday, 05 November at 9:00 p.m. eastern time. The decision to reschedule the debate was made on Saturday, 27 October, due to the track of Hurricane Sandy. Sandy will impact much of the mid-Atlantic and northeastern parts of the U.S. on Monday and Tuesday.
Same candidates, same conditions, same debate
While the storm did force the Free and Equal Election Foundation to change the date of the debate, everything else remains the same. This event will still feature Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party Libertarian Candidate Jill Stein, which were chosen as the winners of the Open-Party Presidential Debate hosted on Tuesday, 23 October.
The theme of this debate will still center on foreign policy. The 90 minute debate will take place at RT America’s state-of-the-art studio in Washington D.C. The Free and Equal Elections Foundation reported on Friday that the moderator for this debate would be announced on Monday, 29 October. While there have been no statements released relating to the moderator of this final debate, one can assume this announcement will also be postponed until after the threats from Hurricane Sandy have subsided.
At this time, the Free and Equal Elections Commission is still negotiating with networks to ensure this debate will be televised. However, the event can be watched online by clicking here. For further announcements about on this debate, please visit the Free and Equal Election Foundation’s website and the Facebook event page created for this debate.
