Come join in the Spirit of '76

Dear Friend of Liberty:

Two hundred and thirty-five years ago, freedom-loving Americans banded together to declare their independence from the King of Great Britain, and to proclaim to the entire world that men were not meant to be slaves to their government.

Today, the Libertarian Party champions those same ideals.

In celebration of Independence Day, and the unalienable rights our Founding Fathers put their lives at risk for, we are asking for a symbolic donation of $17.76 to help continue our new American Revolution.

The Philosophy of Liberty: Plunder

from the Foundation for a Free Society

In this follow up video to The Philosophy of Liberty: Property, we explore Frederic Bastiat's concept of Legal Plunder. Is it ever OK for government to steal your stuff and give it to someone else? Or is government just a glorified organized crime syndicate a la Tony Soprano? Does it really make sense for citizens to plunder each other like competing bands of vikings?

Maryland court rules in favor of Libertarians

On June 21, a Maryland judge ruled that the Libertarian Party had submitted enough petition signatures to gain ballot access in Maryland. The state Board of Elections had previously determined that there were not enough signatures. The main issue was whether to count voters who wrote a printed name that did not perfectly match their voter registration. Read more in the Baltimore Sun.

LP Monday Message: Debt limit, videos

June 20, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I just noticed this article from the Cato Institute, talking about how Republicans and Democrats are likely to use accounting tricks to pretend they're cutting spending, when they really aren't. Republicans want to give themselves some cover before they vote for more debt.

LP Monday Message: Edwards, Weiner & Schwarzenegger

June 6, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

John Edwards was the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 2004, and he was a leading contender for the presidential nomination in 2008. We all now know he cheated on his wife and lied to America about it throughout much of that time. Now he's facing potential jail time if convicted of using campaign funds for a cover-up.

Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner has put on quite a show lately.
