Omaha Taxpayers and the LPNE aren’t Subtle about Recalling Mayor Suttle

In what many consider an early Christmas present to residents of Omaha, Judge Peter Bataillion ruled on Thursday the petition effort that gained nearly 29,000 signatures in a 30-day period was done in accordance with Nebraska law and may now move forward with a Mayoral recall election. Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle lost in his attempt to have thousands of citizens’ signatures thrown out due to what he called illegal petition activities. The Omaha City Council has scheduled the recall election for January 25, 2011.

Congressman Ron Paul praises the Libertarian Party

In a recent interview with ‘The Quarterly Review,’ Ron Paul had kind words to say about the role of minor parties in American politics.

When asked about his run as the Libertarian Presidential candidate in 1988, he responded, “Third parties can serve a useful educational function. I believe the Libertarian Party has done a great service in promoting the libertarian philosophy, and I continue to have many friends and supporters in the Libertarian Party as well as the Constitution Party. I even have some friends in the Green Party.”

California Libertarian creates the "American Dream"

California Libertarian, Tad Lumpkin, recently appeared on Freedom Watch with Judge Napolitano for a video he recently created.

American Dream is a cartoon film about our monetary system and disastrous consequences of the Federal Reserve and a central banking system. On Freedom Watch, Lumpkin explains that his reason for creating this cartoon was to engage people in a topic that is otherwise difficult to understand while simultaneously bringing people together under the ideas of liberty and freedom.
