Christine Smith - Presidential Nominee Candidate

Christine Smith - Libertarian US Presidential Nominee Candidate

American Libertarians:

I would like to introduce myself, since I will be officially announcing my candidacy for the Libertarian Party (LP) presidential nomination soon.

When I officially announce (planned for November 2006), my political campaign website will then be available.

Meanwhile, until my political campaign website is up, I invite you to visit my personal website (link below) to learn more about me.

A little about myself: I am age 39, a resident of Colorado, and have had a successful career as a writer and author (with articles published in numerous national/international publications). I was recipient of The Outstanding American Award in 2002 and the Amigas Peace Prize in 2000. I was founder/president of a nationwide charity for 7 years, and have used my abilities as a public speaker and writer for issues I believe in. (I have much experience in public speaking, and have appeared as a guest on numerous radio talk shows heard nationally/internationally due to my writing.)

I am a natural leader and passionate about my LP politics. I am dedicated to growing the LP by reaching out to the American people with our platform...a platform which I think the majority of Americans will respond to if it is given to them by an articulate LP candidate. I have the abilities needed, and the willingness, devotion, dedication; I believe my ability to effectively communicate and articulate Libertarian solutions will generate greater national media coverage.

I am determined to build our party...educate the people...and make a positive difference through my service with the LP. I have given serious consideration to pursuing a major political office as a Libertarian since a position of leadership will permit me to work for the changes we seek in government; and the more I have thought about it, after careful deliberation, I feel I could do the most for our party and our country by becoming our presidential candidate in 2008.

Thus, in preparation for my announcement seeking the LP nomination, I am learning as much as possible through books and good conversations with Libertarians nationwide. I am an avid reader, and listener...I seek to learn and grow, and to use my talents and abilities as a writer and public speaker to bring more support to our party.

I am planning my campaign now (radio/tv interviews, travel to LP conventions/conferences, etc.)...but most importantly, am reading good books and talking with Libertarians nationwide as I prepare for the campaign.

Until my official campaign website is up, I invite you to visit my personal website to learn more about me: My personal website receives approximately 20,000-25,000 hits per month from worldwide. Upon announcing, I will have a separate website dedicated to my political campaign focusing upon my 3 key issues, platform, professional resume, and other relevant material, etc.

Thus, I wanted to introduce myself to you...I look forward to speaking with and meeting many of you.

Christine Smith
