I Need Your Help!
By Jacob Hornberger, Libertarian candidate for President, www.jacobforliberty.com.
My biggest disappointment in not winning the 2020 Libertarian Party presidential nomination was that I didn’t get the opportunity to run my kind of presidential campaign. I’m hoping to change that in 2024. I have now declared my candidacy for president. www.jacobforliberty.com.
I am writing to you today to seek your financial assistance with this endeavor.
Three years ago, I continually maintained that in order for an L.P. presidential candidate to break into the 7-10% or higher category, it would be necessary to run a different type of presidential campaign — a bold campaign — a campaign that adheres strictly to libertarian principles and that targets an entirely different group of potential voters — a campaign that takes both Republicans and Democrats to task for what they are doing to destroy our liberty, peace, and prosperity.
Last time, I announced my candidacy in November. This time, I decided to announce much earlier — February — 14 months before the national nominating convention in May 2024.
Why so much earlier this time? Because I want every L.P. member to know exactly what I mean by a different presidential campaign — a bold campaign — a campaign that adheres strictly to libertarian principles and that targets entirely different groups of potential voters. I figure that after 14 months, when the nominating convention meets in Washington, D.C., everyone will have a perfect idea of what to expect if I am made the Libertarian Party presidential nominee.
When you see my website, I am certain that you will notice that there has not been a presidential campaign like this within the Libertarian Party within at least the last 30 years.
Open the borders to the free movements of goods, services, and people. End the federal killing machine that has brought so much death and destruction around the world. End the deadly, destructive, and racist war on drugs by legalizing all drugs (not just marijuana). Repeal Social Security (rather than reform, privatize, phase out, or provide opt-outs from this socialist program). Reject health-savings accounts and instead repeal Medicare and Medicaid entirely. Separate healthcare and the state (rather than simply end mandates). Reject school vouchers and instead separate school and state. Restore sound money by separating money and the state. End the Pentagon’s push toward all-out, life-destroying nuclear war with Russia and China. And much, much more.
In fact, when you see my website, I believe you will easily recognize that there has been no presidential candidate in recent history in any political party that has been more explicit on where they stand on the many burning issues facing our country. I want everyone to know exactly where I stand on these issues. In the process, I also want to restore the Libertarian Party brand to one of principled libertarianism. I want the Libertarian Party, once again, to embrace its self-described motto “The Party of Principle.” My campaign motto is “A Campaign of Principle for the Party of Principle.”
I have already been invited to speak at five Libertarian Party state conventions this spring, and there could be more. I need your help covering travel, hotel, meals, registration fees, exhibit tables, and related expenses.
As you will notice on my website, on practically a daily basis I am posting short video blogs and written blogs that take both Republicans and Democrats to task for what they are doing to lead America toward destruction. I’m reposting these blogs on both Twitter and TikTok (jacobforpresident2024).
Ludwig von Mises, whose work has played an enormous role in my life, wrote: “Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders; no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interests, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle. No one can stand aside with unconcern: the interests of everyone hang on the result. Whether he chooses or not, every man is drawn into the great historical struggle, the decisive battle into which our epoch has plunged us.”
Both Republicans and Democrats are taking our country down from within with their immoral and destructive welfare-warfare-state system, which comes with out-of-control federal spending, debt, and inflation. At this stage of my life, I have decided to go all in to prevent them from succeeding.
I need your help. If you’d like to give me a hand, please donate at my campaign website: https://www.jacobforliberty.com/donate or by sending a check to Jacob Hornberger for President, P.O. Box P.O. Box 4147, Broadlands, VA 20148.
Any amount would be greatly appreciated, but the maximum you can give is $3,300. Please include your occupation and employer name.
Thank you for your support. I am more convinced than ever that we Libertarians can lead America to the highest reaches of freedom, peace, prosperity, and harmony that mankind has ever seen.
Yours for liberty,
