Drinking Liberally? No way! Drink with O.C. Libertarians on Jan. 10

Karina Onofre Banner

The first Libertarian Party of Orange County (LPOC) Monthly Meetup of the New Year is set for Tuesday, January 10, 2012, 7:00 PM, at Karl Strauss Brewery, located at 901 South Coast Drive, Costa Mesa, CA (map).  (714) 546-BREW.

Check out the LPOC’s website here.  Click here to visit their Facebook page.

As Libertarians, we seek a world of liberty; a world in which all individuals are sovereign over their own lives and no one is forced to sacrifice his or her values for the benefit of others.

We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.

Consequently, we defend each person’s right to engage in any activity that is peaceful and honest, and welcome the diversity that freedom brings. The world we seek to build is one where individuals are free to follow their own dreams in their own ways, without interference from government or any authoritarian power.

In the following pages we have set forth our basic principles and enumerated various policy stands derived from those principles.

These specific policies are not our goal, however. Our goal is nothing more nor less than a world set free in our lifetime, and it is to this end that we take these stands.

  1. Well, Art, did you happen to notice the entry on the LPOC website for the meeting is preceded by info on the 2009 OC Fair? I don’t know if I am interested in donating or joining online. Who is running the show here in Irange County?

  2. Hi everyone, Tom Hanson, who is me, is the current chair of the LPOC. The facebook page listed above is an unofficial page run by former LPOC Chair Bruce Cohen. The official facebook page of the LPOC is:


    We’re also on meetup.com com as well.



  3. Hi, great article. We are huge members of the Liberty movement here too – so much that we built the green-blue bracelet in Atlas Shrugged. It’s called the Liberty Bracelet and you can check it out at http://www.libertybracelet.com.

    Proceeds are going to the Presidential Campaign for Ron Paul so we thought you might be interested.

    If you’re interesting in posting an entry about it or have us write an entry on your site, we’d love to have you join our affiliate program for you to get commissions from each Liberty Bracelet you help sell and put that towards your site or your local political party! We’ll even help out with a posting!

    Anyway… cool blog… we joined your feed now so we’ll be checking in regularly!

    Did somebody say drinking? I’m in!

  5. “Did somebody say drinking? I’m in!”…….. Hmmmm

    So did say Progressive Liberal Vern Nelson editor of the OJB and landed with 4 DUIs.

    What happened to three strikes law?

  6. “I am never in favor of censorship and was just jerking Stanley’s chain.”…….. Hmmmm

    More like jerking off!

  7. “Who the hell goes to prison for a DUI???”……… Hmmmm

    Anyone who injures property or the person and usually for a long, long time.

  8. LOL, I was WONDERING what you four Orange County Libertarians could be talking about on this thread. Surprise – it’s me! Cheers!!! :)

    • We had a nice meeting tonight – about twenty in attendance. No, we did not talk about you Vern. But we did talk about the Regulate Marijuana like Wine measure and our upcoming So Cal Libertarian Conference. (See my latest post).

  9. “Nice to have a little overlap of interests there. Maybe we’ll get this thing done finally.”……… Hmmmm

    If you follow my comments Gröfaz, you will see that I am in support of the occupy movement and have actually made an offer to the Santa Ana City Council to purchase its rights to it’s camping in Santa Ana of which the written copy is published in New Santa Ana.

    As a political science scholar, I do recognize all elements of a revolution among which a lumpenproletariat aka OCCUPY plays a key role.

    That is why many groups even the TEA PARTY will form a coalition with the OCCUPY.

    However, never in the history did lumpenproletariat enjoyed the fruits of its revolutionary suffering.

    Every revolution starts with lumpenproletariat taking it to the streets and ends when the lumpenproletariat is lucked up in gulags aka concentration camps.

    Currently there are the accommodations build in the California’s high desert to house about 2M of occupy members. See FEMA.

      Hey there Stanley! Miss you lots.

      How do the agendas of Occupy and Tea Party fit into the the theories of ” the realm of magic” and “the cycle of life”?

  10. “How do the agendas of Occupy and Tea Party fit into the the theories of ” the realm of magic” and “the cycle of life”?”……. Hmmmm

    Miss you too, Fawkes!

    I hope that you will contribute regularly to this free spirit OC Politics forum.

    Your question is interesting one, Fawkes!

    In this instance they are both doing “rope jumping” as they do the “hula hoop to da loop” trying to enter “the cycle of life” in the darkness, never reaching ” the realm of magic”.

    The realm of magic is reachable only in the free spirit of an individual not in the chaos of the lumpenproletariat’s masses.
