Restoring Pride & Civility

In this video, I remind us to take pride as Americans in our history, our people, and our institutions. We are by no means a perfect nation. But we enjoy a level of freedom, justice, and prosperity that is remarkable. When we debate the ways to be even better as a nation, we need to quit demonizing those who disagree with us. We need to engage in respectful, civil debate. That’s the only way to continue to progress steadily and sustainably in liberty, justice, and prosperity through the years, decades, and generations.

Joining the LP

In this video, I talk about my decision to join the Libertarian Party (LP).  In short, I joined the LP because I found it to be the party uniquely devoted to personal freedom and accountable government… the party uniquely devoted to preserving liberties while steadily, sustainably advancing justice and prosperity… the party that is the proper home to socially tolerant, fiscally responsible persons such as myself.

Leaving the GOP

In this video, I explain my reasons for leaving the Republican Party, even after serving proudly for over two years on Gov. Hogan’s team here in Maryland.  I am seeking, in short, to give voters an alternative to the entrenched two-party political system and options. The two-party system served us well in the 20th century. But it has become a duopoly and is failing us at the outset of the 21st.

Introducing Lashar for Congress

In this video, I introduce my campaign and my reasons for running.  I am an accomplished technology executive and government official who is dismayed by the polarization and dysfunction in Washington. I am seeking to reach and represent the socially tolerant, fiscally responsible voters who find that the Democratic and Republican parties are no longer hearing or serving them. My campaign seeks to restore competition, choice, and turnover in politics; to strengthen freedom and accountability for individuals and institutions; and to bring decency and civility to political debate.
