Libertarians at the Bayou Boogaloo in New Orleans!
May 19th, 2013.
The Libertarian Party of Louisiana hosted an information booth at the Bayou Boogaloo last month. We would like to give special thanks to all the volunteers who came out to the event to work and to those who purchased supplies. It was quite a success and we had a wonderful time listening to music next to the beautiful bayou and spreading the message of Liberty!
By going out into our communities at fairs and festivals, Libertarians are establishing a presence and letting our neighbors know that there is a third option that is working to rein in the two-party system. We provided voter registration forms, collected contact information to recruit those interested, distributed literature about the Party, and offered a couple of nice displays for taking the Nolan quiz. Many people learned that they were Libertarian!
Libertarians are working to increase our current voter registration of 7888 Members, and we are quickly approaching our 8000 mark by the 4th of July! Please support the organization that is working to implement the type of government you believe in. Change your voter registration to Libertarian at Geauxvote.com and ask your friends and family members to join today!

We invite you to join us TODAY! You can change your voter registration to Libertarian online HERE. It's easy! A growing LPL will send a clear message that people want "More Freedom and Less Government!" Please support our organization as we work to implement the type of government you believe in.
2nd Amendment Rights Shall Not Be Infringed.
April 20th, 2013
Louisiana is responsible for maintaining the general militia for the protection of itself, the Union, and to execute the laws. Each able individual has the responsibility to be knowledgeable and safe in the proper use of force so that he may provide for the defense of himself, his family, and the People. To these ends, the individual right of each to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
Republicans and Democrats are working together to whittle away at our 2nd Amendment Rights. Libertarians are proud to stand for an unyielding adherence to the Constitution. We're fighting to restore Freedom and Liberty in America.

New Charitable Project!
February 12th, 2013
The Optimist Club of Lafayette is in dire need of a new roof over their entire facility. They have not received any official estimates for the job, but preliminarily have determined themselves, that materials will run at a minimum $4,000. This will wipe out approximately HALF of their current balance of funds for their youth scholarships and events. Every dollar spent on the roof is a dollar they won't have available to put towards projects for the kids they help and serve.
