LP Monday Message: Social Security poll

August 22, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

A recent radio appearance gave me the idea to ask Libertarians what they think about cutting Social Security benefits.

Please take the poll here.

Last Friday I was a call-in guest on the WMNF Rob Lorei show in Tampa, Florida. I answered many questions about the LP in general, as well as about Congressman Ron Paul, who was the 1988 LP nominee for president.

LP Monday Message: Toll roads

August 15, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Last week I issued a statement that included a criticism of Texas Governor Rick Perry's support for toll roads. Several people asked for an explanation about my stance on toll roads and I can understand why.

The Libertarian Party platform says "We seek to divest government of all functions that can be provided by non-governmental organizations or private individuals." Private toll roads could fit that bill. Some free-market think tanks have promoted toll roads as a positive option.

LP Monday Message: S&P downgrade

August 8, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I'm sure you have heard the news about the Standard & Poor's downgrade of the U.S. government's credit rating.

I'm not a finance expert, so I don't know exactly how important the downgrade itself is. I think it's one more sign of what Libertarians have known for a long time: the Democrats and Republicans have created a giant welfare-warfare state that is beginning to collapse under its own weight. And I see no sign that they are going to change their behavior.
