Ludwig von Mises Institute added to Liberty Links

In an effort to re-establish many of the links to the broader libertarain movement that some of our older web sites used to contain, I've contacted many leaders to ask if we can link to their organization's web site.  The latest addition to www.lp.org/liberty-links is the Ludwig von Mises Institute (www.mises.org).

Libertarian candidate Rebecca Sink-Burris profiled in Indianapolis paper

Rebecca Sink Burris is a member of the Libertarian National Committee and our 2010 candidate for U.S. Senate in Indiana. Today the Indianapolis Star writes about her:

LP Monday Message: High Unemployment on Labor Day

September 6, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

It's hard to celebrate Labor Day when unemployment is 9.6 percent.

Government interference is the single biggest cause of unemployment. Minimum wage laws, OSHA, ADA, etc., etc., make it difficult both to hire and to fire workers. (And when it's difficult to fire workers, it's much less likely that they will be hired in the first place.) To reduce unemployment, we need to start repealing laws!

Stop Stealing My Stuff by John Jay Myers

Originally the message of the Tea Party seemed clear “Less taxes and spending”.

Simple enough, Right?  Somehow they have gotten distracted.  Very, very distracted.  I know that all Tea Parties and their participants are different, so it is not fair for me to throw them all under the bus.

So for those who are distracted; let me attempt to recapture your attention.

LP Monday Message: Travis Irvine's Quiz Across America video

August 30, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Today is my birthday! I've already received a great gift in the form of a video from the Travis Irvine for Congress campaign. (Actually I'm not sure they intended it as a gift, but I'm pleased all the same.)

The video shows the candidate volunteering for the Quiz Across America door hanger project in his neighborhood and interacting with voters. Please visit our home page to see the video.

Arizona's U.S. Senate Race Offers a Unique Opportunity

Perhaps more than any other contest this year, the battle for the seat currently held by John McCain offers an opportunity to contrast the ideas of liberty with the big-government philosophy that now dominates the GOP.

Arizona held its primary election on August 24, and the results are interesting, to say the least. On the Republican side, incumbent U.S. Senator John McCain overcame two challengers to win with 56% of the vote. At first glance, this may appear decent, but it was actually a pathetic showing.
