Libertarians seek to crash the party in PA
[Pennsylvania Libertarian Party Chairman] Dr. Tom Stevens suggests that, if you generally follow the fiscally conservative/socially liberal philosophy, you are most likely a Libertarian. It's a realization that has expanded exponentially in the past, politically charged year.
"We doubled our registered members since April 2012," said Dr. Stevens. "Most people don't have the time to sit and really think about their political parties. After I speak with them for 5 to 10 minutes, they find out they agree with our 'Live and Let Live' attitude."
The party plans to keep building off its 2012 momentum in the 2013 off-year elections for state and local offices, where third party candidates historically have more success. Currently, there are 135 Libertarians holding elected office nationwide, with 27 in Pennsylvania, ranging from mayor and city council to town treasurer and constable.
