How To Dissolve The LP

2011/10/02 at 10:45 am
Another way to dissolve the LP would be the Oregon way. The LNC could cite some legal status it holds (e.g. FEC status, or trademark holder of the title “Libertarian Party”), cancel the next Party convention, write brand-new bylaws that redefine membership and dissolve the Judicial Committee, and appoint new leadership. If the technique can work in Oregon, why not apply it at the national level?

Q: What kind of Party have you given us, Mr. Nolan?
A: One governed by Bylaws, if you can keep it.

Dissolving the LP would presumably take a 2/3 vote to change Bylaw 2, which says the duration of the Party is perpetual.
