"Of all the people in the United States, the major political parties have settled on two deeply flawed and incredibly unpopular candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump,” says U.S. News in a story headline The Year of the Libertarian.
“Summer is here, and the season’s hottest trend is . . . Libertarians,” notes The Washington Post.
Nick Sarwark, Libertarian National Committee, chair thinks the 2016 election may be the “springboard to mass defections and the destruction of at least one of the old parties. It's time for the Republican Party to fall apart and go away. Or the Democratic Party. I don't really care which.”
Dissatisfaction with the establishment Democratic and Republican parties in North Carolina is rampant – and has been since 2010. Overall voter registration is up, but the number of people registering in the establishment parties continues to decline.
North Carolina will be a swing state in the presidential election. Polls also show that both the race for governor and U.S. Senator are close. And there are Libertarian candidates on the ballot in both contests.
It's clear we have a unique opportunity to make a significant impact this year. To make the most of this opportunity, we've designed unique campaign materials for our candidates, including this voting guide, yard signs, and rack cards. We'll be distributing this material at major state events, including the State Fair and candidate campaign events.
Liberty Needs Your Support
The people of North Carolina are ready, willing and eager to receive our message. But to deliver it, we need your help.
It will cost at least $6,000 to print this specially created 2016 campaign material, as well as replenish our stocks of existing literature. This includes the popular brochure "How Can We Create a Free, Peaceful and Prosperous North Carolina."
Can You Help?
For $100, you can help us put information in the hands of over 250 North Carolinians at the NC State Fair, La Fiesta del Pueblo, the Mountain State Fair, and dozens of campaign events.
For a $20 donation, you can help us share the libertarian message with 50 North Carolinians. Whatever amount you can give will advance the cause of liberty.

Remember what National LP Chair Nick Sawark said. “We are in it for the long term; we are in it to win. It may take two years, four years, 20 years, but we are not going away. And the old parties are, frankly, dying.”
With your help in 2016, we can speed the demise of the establishment parties while making their passing as peaceful and painless as possible for the people of North Carolina.
