LP Monday Message: Run for Congress in 2012

October 10, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I assume you're fed up with the members of Congress.

I'm not just talking about how they are seriously harming our future, and the future of our children and grandchildren, with limitless government spending and debt.

I'm also talking about things like delegating warmaking powers to the president, sustaining the insane War on Drugs, and sitting idly by as the president violates every civil liberty he can think of.

Former Libertarian presidential candidates speak about al-Awlaki killing

LP Monday Message: A new year of government spending

October 3, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

The U.S. government's fiscal year ended last Friday. (That was FY 2011.)

Republicans took over the U.S. House last November, and as a result, government spending finally dropped.

Whoops! I have that wrong. Government spending actually increased!

They haven't reported the final numbers yet, but FY 2010 spending was $3.456 trillion, and FY 2011 spending was most recently projected to come in at $3.597 trillion. That's a 4% increase.

LP Monday Message: Americans are upset

September 26, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

This poll shows a record-high 81% of Americans are dissatisfied with how our country is being governed. Count me as one of the 81%.

Freedom would provide the best environment for job growth, economic security, innovation, and the pursuit of happiness. Libertarians know that, but not enough others know it.

Is drug legalization going mainstream?

Mainstream America may be catching up with the Libertarian Party on the issue of ending drug prohibition.

The Hill reports that legalizing marijuana is the most popular online petition currently being presented to the White House.

Also, on November 15, the Cato Institute is holding a conference titled "Ending the Global War on Drugs."
