Discussing Tallahassee Ideas with Real Candidates

Posted by webmaster@hillsboroughlibertarians.org on August 30, 2017 at 1:55 PM

Bryan Zemina a candidate for FL House sits and listens to Chris H, a member of our #HillsboroughLibertarians after the Turn2Liberty Rant Night on Tell Tallahassee what you think topic. 

LPHC Members enjoyed throwing balls at the speakers on stage, speaking on stage and sharing rants, and even enjoying a beer or kombucha (or two) at the Windmill Taphouse while they attended this Turn2Liberty Grassroots Activism Training with a Twist.

Some days one wonders if anyone is listening and if any one even cares.  But the #HillsboroughLibertarians not only enjoy the fun of socials like our recent tubing the Rainbow River event and potluck movie nights at the LPHC Headquarters, but we do engage in productive planning meetings, provide opportunities for voters to meet the candidates and even share their opinions, and participate in fun and educational training opportunities to our volunteers and leaders.

The Turn2Liberty Rant Nights provide a great opportunity for not only Libertarians but all Liberty focused Hillsborough Residents to have a night of fun and social while we learn and/or improve a critical skill for ACTIVISM in HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY.      

The Activism SKILL:    Sharing Public Opinions at City and County Meetings

  • You get two minutes on the microphone (although you can come up as often as you want)
  • You introduce your self and state which part of Hillsborough County you are from (Tampa, Brandon, Riverview, etc)
  • You state your position _____________ (for or against) a specific topic ____________.
  • You share your position details and why
  • You close asking for others (today just the audience) to vote for your position.
Turn2Liberty makes Activist Training Fun -   SOOOOOO
Yes, there is alcohol
Yes, there is laughter
Yes, we all make mistakes (it has no official impact so mistakes do not matter)
Yes, we are silly and will even toss balls on stage if you go over time or are out of order 
oh, and best yet - there is no cost for a class - we simply charge $2 for each time on the mic (to cover expenses)

SEE YOU at the NEXT Turn2Liberty Rant Nite - grassroots activist training with a twist.

       PRACTICE  leads to  PROGRESS
We hope to see you feel comfortable enough to participate with us at the real county and city meetings soon.
