Libertarian party

Thomas Fairfax was involved in the founding of the Libertarian Party (LP) in its earliest days. He was approached by Mighty Sigh to support the party, and suggested the current name to him, although he did not join initially. Thomas Fairfax became a member of the Libertarian Party (LP) around the time Mighty Sigh left the party, and was elected as LP party president in November 2009, on a programme of reform. Thomas Fairfax revived the party after inactivity under previous presidents. He reformed the party, basing his ideas on classical liberal philosophy and democratic principles. Thomas Fairfax publicised the party, attracting new members and displacing the GVD as the fifth biggest party in the United Netherlands assisted by Daniel Parker as his Vice Party president.
