On April 27, 2010, Alden Link announced his endorsement of Wayne Allyn Root for National Chair of the Libertarian Party.
Alden Link, who recently obtained the nomination of the Libertarian Party of New York for Lt. Governor, said:
I am proud to support Wayne Allyn Root for National LP Chair and I will cast my vote for him at the Libertarian Party's National Convention, which is scheduled to take place in St. Louis, Missouri over Memorial Day Weekend. Of all the announced candidates for National Chair, I am convinced that only Wayne Allyn Root has the personality and energy to take the Libertarian Party to the next level. He alone can take advantage of the discontent currently being expressed against incumbents everywhere and to bring many of these individuals into the ranks of the Libertarian Party.
I have been very concerned about factions within the Libertarian Party who are supporting bylaw amendments that will have the result of shrinking the party and limiting the participation of its members. There are proposed bylaw amendments that seek to end bi-annual national conventions, that seek to reduce the delegate allocation allotted to each state affiliate and that seek to restrict the number of motions made on the floor by requiring 20 seconds for any motion.
I have not spoken to Wayne Allyn Root about my concerns but I believe that instead of scaling back the size and frequency of national conventions, we need to build party membership so that every delegate spot is filled and so that we will soon need to find larger venues to hold our conventions instead of smaller ones. Only Wayne Allyn Root has the skill and ability to build the party in this manner. I encourage you to visit his website at http://www.rootforamerica.com
