Obama's new "Raw Deal"

"The 1930s recession became the Great Depression because policymakers didn't take the necessary actions," said Democratic economic adviser Jared Bernstein in a recent Washington Post article.

Free Market Heroes, Vol. 2: Rick Berman

When it comes to your life and government regulation, the government has two rules.  The first: Government is never wrong.  The second: Should there be an exception to the first rule, government was at least trying to do the right thing, so it is still right.  

What are economists saying about the auto bailout?

It should go without saying that the Libertarian Party is philosophically and pragmatically opposed to any sort of bailout to corporations, especially when they've been run as poorly as American auto manufactures.  But what are the economists saying about the auto bailouts?  I've compiled some snippets from various economists, and put them together here for your reading pleasure:

Bailing-Out the Big Three

This week, the main buzz is sure to be about possibly bailing-out the automotive industries in Detroit, known as the "Big Three."  The Big Three consist of the three major automotive manufacturers: Ford, General Motors and Chrysler.

We at the Libertarian Party often say that we're in it for the long haul.  We know that much of what we want to do with the government can't effectively be done overnight, and in addition to that, know that to even begin to implement our reforms in everything from the tax system to the size of government, will still take lots of time (and election cycles). 

The Time is Now!

"This is just the beginning," says Bob Barr, the 2008 presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party.

He couldn't be more right.

The 2008 election was yet another record-breaking year for the Libertarian Party.  Not only did two candidates break the million-vote mark, it was also the first time in the Party's history that our presidential vote total went up in three consecutive presidential elections.

Video Your Vote!

From Volunteer Coordinator Austin Petersen:

As Election Day nears, we wanted to tell you about an opportunity to get your candidate more exposure on YouTube, and to participate in an exciting partnership we have with PBS.

Make Sure Your Vote Counts!

In these last few days, millions of undecided voters will finally make up their minds for a candidate, and will decide the future of the next four years of this country.  As we have since 1972, the Libertarian Party is representing Americans across the nation by running candidates who believe in less government, lower taxes and more individual freedom. 

The Libertarian Party Is the Voice for Liberty

By Dr. Jim Lark, orginally published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch:

As Election Day approaches, many Virginians who believe the federal government is too big, too intrusive, and too expensive may feel they have no one to support at the ballot box.
