LP Monday Message: Sunday Beer

August 9, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

It's been just over a year since I moved to Washington, D.C. to work at the Libertarian Party Headquarters as Executive Director. What a change from Texas.

Most - and least - bang for your buck

David Nolan cactusHow do we Libertarians most effectively allocate our limited resources? Suppose you have $100 to contribute to aiding the cause of liberty. How should you spend that $100? One obvious answer is to donate it to the Libertarian Party – at the national, state or local level.  Another is to contribute to the campaigns of Libertarian candidates you particularly favor.  All of those options make sense.

LP Monday Message: On civil liberties, Obama is worse than Bush

August 2, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Last week it was reported that the Obama Administration wants to give the FBI power to force internet companies to reveal information about their users' internet activities: things like who they send email to, times and dates of emails, and maybe also information about their web browser activity.

Even worse, they want the FBI to be able to demand this information without a warrant!

How the city politicians of Bell, CA conned the low income taxpayers to unwittingly pay for their huge salaries

"The outrageous story of the hapless city of Bell, California is now widely known across the nation.  A group of city politicians led by City Manager Rizzo allegedly colluded to pay themselves obscene salaries in a poor city of under 40,000 residents.
