The Freeman's Burden:

To defend the principles of human liberty; to educate; to be vigilant against the ever expanding power of the state.

This past weekend was the 2005 Seattle Relay for Life to benefit the American Cancer Society. The Libertarians of the University of Washington made our presence known through participation, donations and voluntary activism. I want to thank every one who donated on our behalf. Thanks to your efforts, our Relay was the biggest fundraising RFL in the country. Some have expressed concerns about the uses to which your money will be put. You will be glad to know that through special arrangement, all Libertarian donations to the American Cancer Society through this event will be used for non-political purposes. While we don't believe that it is appropriate for an organization such as the ACS to use its lobby power to use government to ban smoking on private property, we do believe that, in the absence of government coercion, people will come together voluntarily to work towards the common good. We proved that this weekend and I am very proud of our efforts. I also want to congratulate Penny, who advanced to the second round of the Relay Idol singing competition before being robbed by the judges. She did a great job and we are all very proud. - F2S
