LP responds to Wall Street Journal editorial

In response to this August 25, 2011 editorial in the Wall Street Journal, LP Executive Director Wes Benedict sent the following letter to the editor:

Dear Editor:

In "Expect a Third-Party Candidate in 2012," the authors noted broad public support for a third major party in the United States. Unfortunately, they ignored our third-largest political party: the Libertarian Party.

The War on Drugs: States' Rights - Rob Kampia, MPP

"In practice it ends up being a states' rights issue because the only way we're able to make progress in the political realm is by winning in states, which then allows us to increase the pressure on the federal government."

LP Monday Message: Social Security poll

August 22, 2011

A recent radio appearance gave me the idea to ask Libertarians what they think about cutting Social Security benefits.

Please take the poll here.

Last Friday I was a call-in guest on the WMNF Rob Lorei show in Tampa, Florida. I answered many questions about the LP in general, as well as about Congressman Ron Paul, who was the 1988 LP nominee for president.

LP Monday Message: Toll roads

August 15, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Last week I issued a statement that included a criticism of Texas Governor Rick Perry's support for toll roads. Several people asked for an explanation about my stance on toll roads and I can understand why.

The Libertarian Party platform says "We seek to divest government of all functions that can be provided by non-governmental organizations or private individuals." Private toll roads could fit that bill. Some free-market think tanks have promoted toll roads as a positive option.

The Most Destructive and Devastating War in American History

By R. Lee Wrights
