We have the best of several top Seminars on Communication, and Political Persuasion -- hundreds of dollars worth -- and we've distilled them into the cream of the crop -- it's priceless! but YOU won't have to pay hundreds of dollars to get this exciting information!

Here are some of the incredible things we've got in store for you:

We'll examine a lot of the things that Libertarians want to know

AND you'll have plenty of time to experiment and practice these innovative ideas designed to make YOU a successful Communicator of the Freedom Philosophy! Thousands of people have changed minds, improved their personal relationships, even gotten raises using these techniques --

because this stuff is POWERFUL!

Turn conversations from negative to positive. Gain the interest of your listener and understand in seconds the kind of political corner they're coming from. Become a sleuth of influence so that those around you come to encounter, evaluate and embrace Libertarianism. These are the tools that unlock minds!

If you've never attended a Convention before, or you never attend another one -- You'll want to attend THIS one because you want to advance Liberty every day with confidence and authority.
