Letter to Boortz

Dear Mr. Neal Boortz,

As an unaffiliated Objectivist and political libertarian, I am delighted to have your radio program added to the line-up here on WWNC 570AM in Asheville, North Carolina.

As you are well aware, the city of Asheville is not your target audience. But do not despair. In the greater Asheville area there are considerable conservative, libertarian and independent factions that have coalesced into a few main groups with overlapping missions.

The group LibertyAsheville has grown out of the Ron Paul revolution and his subsequent Campaign for Liberty. The local Asheville 9-12 Project grew out of the "We Surround Them" movement spearheaded by Glenn Beck. The Asheville Tea Party group is our local grassroots response to the corresponding national movement. Our tea party group, headed up by Erika Franzi, has held three tea parties here in Asheville this year and joined the recent march at our nation's capital on 9/12. Our tea party group, now numbering 900, has also held several health care reform protests in recent months. We also have a Buncombe County Libertarian Party group that became the main force behind the Libertarian Reform Caucus that drove the recent LP platform changes at the 2006 national convention in Portland, Oregon. And your show will compliment the locally-produced Take a Stand Show with our own libertarian talkmaster Matt Mittan.

I welcome the much-needed addition of your show to our local airwaves and look forward to your possible visit in the Fall to do a remote from the famed Grove Park Inn. I expect to attend your live remote broadcast and will certainly encourage my friends from the above groups to join me.

Also, if you are so inclined, during your visit, we would be happy to invite you to be our guest at some kind of joint social event sponsored by LibertyAsheville. Please let me know if you would like to join us.

Yours in liberty,
