2012 Liberty Forum/Single Issue
« on: July 17, 2011, 06:55:10 pm »

Put the name down of some good 'Issue' speakers that you might want to hear at the 2012 Liberty Forum.

2 rules of this thread:
1.  No debating/etc... I will delete those posts... just talk about the 'Issue' speakers you would be interested in.
2.  No repeats. If they spoke at LF before.... chances are they won't be speaking in 2012.

What about having one of the Vermont secessionists speak? Kirkpatrick Sale, Thomas Naylor, or another. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Vermont_Republic)

They'll definitely be leftists, but they've been at this independence game longer than we have and they might even become allies against Washington someday. (They have neat t-shirts that say "US Out of VT".)

Whenever these come up, I always seem to think of Dick Cheatham. But he'd be better for something like a home/unschool track for the kids of the attendees. Which is a thought: why not have a showcase of educational alternatives?

Sorry if this is a thread hijack.

Tom Naylor spoke in 2010.

I will add Mr Sale to the list of possible.

We had an education track in 2009 capped by John Taylor Gatto... but I will add Mr Cheatam to list of possibles.


Looking for any names you find.

oh yea
people liked the federal income tax talks by Michelle and others a couple of years ago.
you can always find a constitutional scholar for that sort of stuff too
how about one of our 3 name guys from the forums? they could represent all of the know-it-all NHerites that instruct the freedom movement, but are afraid to do anything themselves. We could have one in person. :)

I like the idea of inviting local secessionists. I think it should be broadened (multiple speakers on the subject, from multiple 'states').

I suggest secession reps from VT, ME, Quebec, and (if you can find them) Nova Scotia and New Foundland.
Lets start a discussion on Novo Arcadia!

PS I'll help find these folks. We need to start networking with them.

Yeah!

Perhaps someone from the Atlantic Institute for Market Studies (http://www.aims.ca/en/home/default.aspx) which proposed that Northern New England and the Canadian Maritimes actually form a coherent cultural region that could exist independently. See http://www.atlantica.org/en/home/default.aspx.

Just be sure not to invite any racists, like Sebastian Ronin of Novacadia, and it's best to stay away from the League of the South as well.

I've mentioned Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms before. He couldn't do it in the past, but maybe this time?
