The Hill Asks: "Have the Big Three Made a Strong Enough Case for a Bailout?"

Sub-Title: 

The Libertarian Party Says: "No."

As I recover from Election Day and my US Senate campaign that preceded it, it is time to take stock of where the Libertarian Party stands and what we accomplished in the election season just passed.
