My most pressing issue this coming November is getting Liberty Minded voters to focus on one central issue when backing a candidate. This is at all levels of government. Too often, we are distracted by the shiny balls that are tossed into our eye-line by the mass media. People start talking about alleged remarks and … Continue reading ELECTION PRIORITIES
At no time “censoring” Mr. Vorha for his speech, but “censuring” him for the problems he created for our party.
Well, here is the short skinny... He is the Vice Chairman of the Libertarian Party and has made some disparaging remarks about those of us that have served in the US Military. He has re-explained his comments, but has not sincerely apologized for his remarks. Those of you who know me, realize that I will … Continue reading Weighing in on Arvin Vohra
Recently, in my town, we have been embroiled in several issues regarding perceived over-reach of government. The most egregious and urgent issue has been the city council’s exercise of “eminent domain.” Eminent domain was a controversial concept since the inception of our nation. Early on, we recognized the need to have access to property we … Continue reading Eminent Domain Abuse
I was challenged by a friend about finding a “real” downside to having a single payer health care system. My problem was… where do I begin. They even have this 10 Point Meme that is circulating the web promoting Single Payer. The problem is that 9 of the 10 points are completely false, or at … Continue reading THE MYTH OF SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE SYSTEMS
I was in a discussion in one of my Libertarian groups, and someone stated that our cause is on a federal level and not on a local level. I could not disagree more. I feel Libertarianism is a grass roots ideal. It is on a local level that we feel experience the aggression of power, … Continue reading LIBERTARIANISM ON A LOCAL LEVEL
Here is a statement that shocks and angers most political partisans: Libertarians are more fiscally responsible than Republicans and more socially progressive than Democrats. 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)
Between reading my Libertarian stuff and my bible reading, a thought occurred to me... are we all guilty of theft? We sit in our homes and justify the having taxes taken for this road... or that service, that we use and enjoy. However, do I ever think about the people that are struggling with less … Continue reading Are We All Guilty of Theft?
This is a parable that may help a Non-Libertarian understand how a Libertarian feels. A story about 3 travelers lost in the woods. In this story, they found a safe clearing to make camp. One was sent out to forage for food, another was tasked with building shelter and the last was to gather fuel … Continue reading Three Men Lost in the Woods
