Preview Libertarian platform changes

Dear fellow Libertarian:
Thank you to those who recently completed the survey from the Bylaws and Rules Committee.
Now I have a different survey that I also need your help with.
I serve as the chair of the 2016 Libertarian Party Platform Committee and I need to know some of your opinions about our party platform.
With the 2016 convention just around the corner, our convention delegates will soon be voting on improvements to the platform.
The 2016 Platform Committee met in March, and we have a series of 17 recommendations we want to show you.  You're now being invited to complete a questionnaire and share with us your thoughts on our recommendations.
Please take the questionnaire when you have enough time to give thoughtful consideration for all 17 recommendations.  Because it's so close to convention time, this survey will only remain open for 1 week, so don't wait so long that the opportunity is gone.  Please complete it by May 11.
Your responses will be very helpful.  If you identify important factors we overlooked, or if you can think of improvements for the proposals, the Committee will have an opportunity to modify our report when we meet again in Orlando on the day before the convention starts.
Please take a few minutes to participate in the questionnaire by using this link.
It will allow you to show support/opposition for each recommendation as well as an opportunity to provide comments on each. 
If you need to review the current Libertarian Party platform, you can find it here on the party’s website.
You can find a PDF version of the entire committee report here.  
Thank you,
Alicia Mattson
Chair, Libertarian Party Platform Committee
