Bylaws Proposal - Eliminate the LP Program

The following was also written by Geoff Neale:

The Program is a document that the Bylaws requires be written by the LNC. This document shall be: "a maximum of 10 issues; which are currently receiving widespread, national public attention; are readily identifiable by most individuals as matters which affect them personally and directly; and offer interim or transitional proposals which move toward a libertarian society, which are clearly identified as interim or transitional proposals."

This sounds like a great idea. The problem is that the LNC has given little or no attention to this document in recent memory, because the purpose of the LNC is NOT to be a document creation committee, but to be the board of directors of the Libertarian Party.

Eliminating this Bylaw does not mean we cannot have such a document. It just means that we are not mandating the document in our Bylaws.
