Libertarian Tie-Dye Caucus
The Libertarian Tie-Dye Caucus is an unofficial caucus of the Libertarian Party. It was founded in 2018 by Mike Seebeck.
- We hold that the core of libertarianism is individualism, and that individualism is most easiest expressed by what we wear. If you get offended by what we wear, that's your problem.
- We wear tie-dye because...
- we like that it represents a nature of free expression and individuality.
- we march to beat of our own accordion. Or harmonica. Or kazoo, tuba, or whatever.
- we like bright and cheery colors. Too much of today's fashion and life in general is neutral, drab, dark, boring, and dingy.
- it cheers things up and makes people smile. The world needs more of that.
- We don't care how plumbline (whatever that is) you are in libertarian philosophy, as long as you agree with the Statement of Principles.
- We don't charge dues and our dress code is simple: Wear tie-dye! BYO, bring it bright, and bring it often! (But bring it tasteful!)
- We don't have meetings. We don't have Bylaws. We're kinda short on clothes hangers, too.
- We don't have a membership roll. We might have a dinner roll, but that could be a bagel or doughnut in disguise--it depends on the meetings we go to.
- Our mission is simple:
- Wear tie dye at all LP meetings, conventions, in public, to meals, to bed, to work, to the in-laws, to court, everywhere!
- Draw smiles from other people wherever we go.
- Encourage others to wear the same.
- Patronize small businesses that make tie-dye and spread the word about them. (No, we don't any commissions!)
- Oh yeah, one last thing: There's no such thing as too much tie-dye!
