Liberty on the Rocks tonight

One of two exciting Liberty on the Rocks Events this month!

In honor of Milton Friedman’s 102nd birthday, National Taxpayers Union Foundation, Tax Foundation, and Liberty on the Rocks D.C. are teaming up to toast one of the greatest economists of our time! We will be celebrating this festive occasion in person and online:

Happy Hour: Join us on Tuesday, July 29th, starting at 5:30 at the Laughing Man Tavern (1306 G Street NW) for a night of Friedman-themed games (think Cards Against Humanity with more liberty) and some complementary drinks will be provided. Play the game for a drink and a chance to win a $50 Visa gift card!!! There will also be short remarks by NTUF’s Pete Sepp and Tax Foundation’s Steven Entin, a student of Friedman’s.

School Supply Drive: Since Friedman was a leader in school choice, we will be collecting school supplies for the Perry Street Preparatory Public Charter School. Please bring folders, writing paper, ink pens, pencils, dividers for binders, book bags, crayons, and composition books. Cash contributions would also be appreciated.

Online: Can’t make it to the event? Not in the area? Vote in NTU Foundation’s online poll on which federal tax system reform you want to see enacted and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $50 Visa gift card. Other prizes will be available as well. Play often to increase your chances! Vote here:

Chesapeake Pride

Hey gang, it's that time again - the Chesapeake Pride Festival at beautiful Mayo Beach Park. You can bring your bathing suit and towel and go for a dip in the Bay or just go wading (see picture of me getting my feet wet in 2010).
Here's all the info:
Saturday, August 2, from noon to 6 p.m. They want all the vendors/exhibitors to be set up by 10:30 a.m. There won't be a tent, but if someone can bring a long table and a few chairs, we should be good (see picture of our table in 2011).
The exact address - for your GPS devices - is 4150 Honeysuckle Drive, Edgewater, MD.
Please let me know if you will be there. Eric, please spread the word to the Young Libertarians. Our candidates for Governor and Attorney General will be there - at least for a few hours. It will be a great opportunity to let the GLBT community know that there is a party in Maryland, with candidates, that stands for equal rights and liberty for all.
In liberty,
Susan GaztaƱaga

Debate: Libertarians vs Conservatives

July 24
Cato Institute
1000 Massachusetts Avenue NW
6:30 pm

Join the Cato Institute and the Heritage Foundation as we host our annual summer intern debate to discuss the topic: Is libertarianism or conservatism the better political philosophy?

The event will be moderated by political reporter Chris Moody. A reception will follow. 

This event is open to all students, interns, and young professionals. To reserve your seat, register here: The event will also be broadcast live online:


Liberty and virtue are values that both conservatives and libertarians tout as components of their philosophies. Historically, disagreements about the definitions of and balance between liberty and virtue have taken a back seat to other more pressing conflicts, causing the distinct philosophies to often be lumped together. As times have changed, elements of the old “fusionism” alliance have dissolved, and new conflicts have emerged that impose a strain on the formerly functioning, though imperfect, ideological partnership.

Recent policy issues have highlighted disagreements in areas such as the War on Drugs, national defense, welfare, immigration, marriage, foreign policy, and many others. These topics represent important reasons to discuss the similarities and the differences between the two worldviews.

We invite you to a timely debate about the two philosophies and their associated policy applications, as interns from the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute go head-to-head to answer the perennial question: Is libertarianism or conservatism the better political philosophy?

Libertarians call on Delegate Norton to offer Amendment eliminating Harris Amendment

Marijuana becomes decriminalized in DC, somewhat, tonight.

But Maryland Congressman Andy Harris has offered an amendment to the Financial Services Appropriation bill voted on today to overturn that. Harris's amendment to the Financial Services Appropriation Bill comes to the floor for a vote today.

Delegate Norton should offer an amendment to eliminate his amendment interfering with DC's autonomy.

If she can't do that, what good is the DC Democratic Party?

This is why the D.C. Libertarian Party is recruiting and running a full slate of candidates, to offer an alternative the DC's one party state and protect the autonomy of DC residents.

You can contact Delegate Norton at one of her 3 Congressional offices
