Greetings,

I became a foundation member of the National Party on 6/19/2017 and I
registered with my State party shortly before the 2016 election. I am
currently a precinct committeeman.

As someone who is considering whether or not to step up my involvement or
to go back to being a non-voting Independent,  I would like to express a
concern that I have regarding something I recently observed.   I hope this
isn't simply dismissed as "Facebook Drama" or just the Audacious Caucus
doing their thing, because it goes beyond that.

I have attached a series of screenshots of comments made by Jeff Wood of
the Audacious Caucus and the Libertarian Party of Michigan in which he
cites the 1990 Scarborough Tax Day Mail Bombing as a source of inspiration
as well as defending the actions of Timothy McVeigh and offers a "blanket
invitation to domestic terrorists and violent drug cartels" to join the
Libertarian Party.  He also boldly states "I fully intend to shoot police
and soldiers with automatic weapons at some point in my lifetime".

I shouldn't have to explain why this is a concern.  I realize the whole
Audacious thing is about being "so outrageous they can't be ignored", but
he is openly advocating for domestic terrorists to join the party.  Between
this and certain other members of the danger caucus who claim to be
actively recruiting Antifa, I am considering withdrawing any future support
for this Party as I cannot in good conscience be associated with such
things. My wife is already reluctant to join and needless to say this has
not helped me convince her.

I am not going to presume to suggest what, if anything, the LNC should do
about this matter,  but I feel it is necessary to bring it to your
attention.  I will say that if the so-called "Shadow LNC Rising" aka
Audacious Caucus and their affiliated groups ever gain a significant
foothold in the LP beyond their little echo chamber (which certainly
appears to be their goal) I will leave and never look back.

Thank you for your time.  Please view and consider the attachments.

In Liberty,
Jason Gillam, MCLP PCM
