FCC Should Remain Neutral on Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission chairman, Julius Genachowski, released a statement on December 1st addressing the issue of net neutrality.  The FCC has proposed several regulations that would stop internet service providers from blocking or promoting any website over another. Essentially, internet users will be able to search any website they want without discretion from broadband companies. This proposal is set for a vote on December 21st, and if passed, the FCC will be able to regulate “net neutrality.”

Too politicized to fail! by Tibor R. Machan

It may now be assumed that the only people allowed to fail in the world are athletes and some gamblers.  Businesses are not.

In Ireland, for instance, banks made bad loans and thus lost a lot of dough but no, they were not allowed to go under by the government and by its European pals.  Why?  Because economic failure is, well, not nice. People do not expect it and politicians couldn’t hide from the responsibility for it.

The Forest, The Trees, and the TSA

Downsize lauches campaign to abolish the TSA

Our good friends at have launched a campaign to abolish the TSA.

It's a quick and easy way to send a message to your congressional "representative" and to your two U.S. Senators.

Please let Congress know that you still value the Bill of Rights, abhor the TSA's invasion of privacy, and object to the monumental waste of taxpayers' money.

Yours in liberty......................Mark Hinkle, LNC Chair

LP Monday Message: David Nolan remembered

November 29, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Even with the elections recently over, we've had a busy couple of weeks.

Our Libertarian National Committee had a productive meeting in New Orleans on November 20-21. It was a shock to us to learn shortly after the meeting that Libertarian Party co-founder David Nolan had passed away that weekend.
