LP Monday Message: 193 Libertarian Candidates File in Texas; Other News

January 11, 2010

Dear Friend of Liberty,

January 4, 2010 was the deadline to file for office for the November 2010 elections in Texas. An impressive 193 Libertarians filed. I think several others had hoped to file, but they missed the deadline. Texas has the earliest filing deadline for the November 2, 2010 elections.

193 Libertarian candidates file in Texas

Yesterday, January 4, was the deadline in Texas for candidates to file for the November 2010 elections. Texas has the earliest filing deadline of the 50 states.

LP Monday Message: Stop Subsidizing Health Care!

December 28, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

You have probably heard lots of politicians in recent months complaining about "the skyrocketing cost of health care." They wring their hands about how "the United States spends more on health care..." etc. etc.

Their solution? More government, of course.

But why does the cost of health care keep going up so fast? Most other products and services don't have this problem. Food prices don't skyrocket every year. Electronics don't either. What is so special about health care?

Politico asks Wes Benedict about Gary Johnson

The political news site Politico.com suggests that "Gary Johnson emerges as the next Ron Paul." Johnson is a former New Mexico governor.

The story quotes LP Executive Director Wes Benedict:

What seems clear is that for now Johnson has no plan to leave the GOP. He resisted a draft effort from the Libertarian Party leading up to the 2000 presidential race and now, while noting his disillusionment with the party’s fiscal record during the Bush years, says: “I am still a Republican.”

TV coverage of Libertarian debate battle in Massachusetts

In the campaign for the special election to replace the late Massachusetts Senator Edward Kennedy, Libertarian candidate Joe Kennedy is making waves. (Joe Kennedy is not related to Edward Kennedy, and will appear on the ballot as an independent.)

The Democratic candidate wants Kennedy included in all debates -- the Republican candidate seems to be dancing around the issue.

LP Monday Message: Happy Bill of Rights Day!

December 14, 2009

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Tomorrow, December 15, is Bill of Rights Day. I don't know how much we'll hear about it in the media, but you and I know how important the Bill of Rights is. The Founders recognized that it was important to be specific about what government must not do.

The Libertarian Party platform expresses support for the Bill of Rights in many places. For example:

First Amendment:
