Towards a True Liberal Bloc in Parliament
‘Not your usual Libertarianz conference’
The 2012 conference will be different from those of the past. It’s not just for Libertarianz members—it’s a symposium for all people who believe we need a new political party in Parliament presenting small-government answers to the issues of today; a party which consistently advocates liberal solutions to problems such as our current economic malaise as well as taking a small-government approach to what individuals do in their private lives.
We will be confronting the urgent need for a new liberal party at both the national and local body level. Ever since local government was granted Power of General Incompetence in 2002, we have seen an explosion in its spending and power. In Auckland the C&R City Vision duopoly has run amok, overseeing year after year of enormous increases in rates and spending. There is room in local councils across the country for a party that really protects ratepayers’ wallets, property and liberties.
This year’s conference is shaping up to be historic. We have fantastic speakers lining up to have their say on the design of a new, united, truly liberal force in New Zealand politics.
Whether you be libertarian, liberal, a cannabis law reform advocate or disillusioned with the formerly semi-liberal ACT, you should help write New Zealand political history by attending this year!
Note: Persons who wish to attend this conference have the opportunity to make submissions on the name, branding and policies of a new national and local level political party at the conference. Anyone wishing to be part of the submission process can email firstname.lastname@example.org with their personal/organisation details and the content of their submission.

I won’t be there, but will be interested in what Whaleoil says, because he’s a statist: no liberty lover.
You are going to this Richard?
Will you be making a Submission?
I dont know if I could bare to attend.
Though I am interested in the formation of a New Party, I am wallowing in a mire of disillusion. Is it possible for Christian to be respected members of a political party made up of Objectivists whom marginalise Non- cult members????
Yes, I’m going.
No, I won’t be making a submission or having any formal input into the formation of a new freedom-friendly political party.
Yes, I’ll join any new freedom-friendly political party as a gesture of good will and to help them cross the 500 member threshold to register the party with the Electoral Commission.
No, I won’t have any formal role in any new freedom-friendly political party.
Yes, I’ll probably rejoin the Libz, while it still exists, for old time’s sake, and I might even put out a Libz press release! (All being well, the Libertarianz Party will cease to exist after the conference.)

I’m going to the conference for inspiration, to network, to catch up with some old friends and to offer my free, unsolicited advice to those who want to hear it and also to those who don’t. Basically, I’m going for the lulz.
(Also I hope to set a good Christian libertarian example and to minister to lost atheist souls over a few beers.)
It would be great to see you there … Reed, too.

Sweet, bro! 🙂

OK, but if this is all so “new”, “united”, and “historic” why are the speakers for the most part the same old schism-happy crew who have for the last decade or two steered the Libz course from political obscurity to utter, complete and total political obscurity?

(Also I plan to field-test my new pick-up line: “Do you wear a head scarf to church?”)
Yes, Daniel. YES.
That is the Chief reason I have decide I have a moral obligation to show up Daniel… To Represent Christian Libertarianism with Richard.
Hey Richard. What Branch is that Libz Bank account?
Tim, the bank account number is above. (It’s the BNZ … somewhere on the North Shore.)
