On August 9, 2010, the Governing Board of Libertarian Patriots of New York changed the name of the organization to Libertarian Patriots in order to accommodate the patriotic libertarians throughout the country who requested an opportunity to join on the grounds that the issues they face in their states are identical to those faced by patriotic libertarians living in New York State.
Libertarian Patriots of New York (LPNY) was originally founded by Dr. Tom Stevens on May 31, 2010 in response to his anger that a deliberate decision was made by anti-patriotic anarchists not to fly the American Flag at the Libertarian Party's National Convention that was held in St. Louis, Missouri over Memorial Day Weekend and their subsequent negative comments about the United States of America in general.
Libertarian Patriots is a group of proud, patriotic Americans who respect and honor this country, its Founding Fathers, and the United States Constitution, while supporting libertarian principles such as support for a smaller government, lower taxes and more individual freedom.
If you are interested in membership or a leadership position in Libertarian Patriots, contact Dr. Tom Stevens, our Founder, at DrTomStevens@aol.com
