LP Monday Message: Congress burns Constitution

September 13, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Hi, I hope you had a nice weekend. The weather was absolutely beautiful here in D.C.!

4-way U.S. Senate candidates' debate set for Sept. 26

KTVK-3TV in Phoenix has scheduled a debate that will include all four of Arizona's ballot-qualified U.S. Senate candidates: John McCain, Rodney Glassman, Jerry Joslyn and myself. It will run without commercial interruption from 6pm to 7pm on Sunday, Sept. 26.  This is most likely the only debate that McCain will agree to participate in.  If all goes well, the debate will significantly increase awareness of my campaign and could boost my standing in any polls that are taken.

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!
