Tar Heel Libertarian - December 2023

Volume 3, Issue 15 | December 2023

The Supreme Court has ruled that they cannot have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. This wasn't for any religious reasons. They couldn't find three wise men and a virgin.” ― Jay Leno

In this Issue... 

In our December 2023 issue, Ryan steps back and defers to the candidates who filed to run in 2024. We have 46 candidates running for 44 seats at every level of the government, and we are ecstatic. The first article covers who filed for what offices and what comes next. We also hear from Shannon Bray, one of the two potential candidates vying to be the Libertarian nominee for NC Governor. 

In our other feature articles, Rob Yates looks at the meaning of Christmas through a freedom lens, and Joshua Glawson reflects on the tendency of North Carolina to default to statism masked as freedom. Justin gives a first-time buyer guide to purchasing a firearm, and we round things out with an ask for help, a chance to buy some LPNC merch, Liberty iNC season 3, and some convention-related announcements.

Convention is right around the corner

Join us in Clemmons the weekend of February 16th-18th for the 2024 LPNC Convention. Everyone wants to live their own life their own way, for their own needs, and according to their own values. It's time we push back against the ever-encroaching imposition of the state in our lives. Come celebrate with us, and raise a glass to freedom.

We'll be meeting at the Village Inn Hotel and Event Center for a weekend of business, enlightening speakers, and fun! Tickets include all convention activities, plus a catered Gala on Saturday. We will also have a Friday evening reception from 7pm-11pm.
