Making this factual statement, in a room of political pundits, is like tossing an incendiary grenade into an enclosed space with only one exit! It lances the very heart of the … Continue reading CAN YOU PARTY LIKE A LIBERTARIAN? (Part II)
It never ceases to amaze me how many people are TOTALLY unaware of what is the Libertarian Party. This is not an accident, by any means. Much misinformation has been disseminated by the other major political parties, the mass media and other detractors threatened by the message of freedom and liberty. It is just as … Continue reading CAN YOU PARTY LIKE A LIBERTARIAN? (part 1)
