The 'Bailout From Hell' Must be Rejected

Sub-Title: 

An OpEd from Libertarian Party nominee Bob Barr

In the name of restoring economic confidence, the Bush administration is demanding unlimited authority to implement a massive financial bailout. The Secretary of the Treasury would become an economic dictator, empowered to reengineer the economy as he sees fit. These powers fit Kim Jong-il's North Korea, not the American republic.

Barack Obama Can Debate Bob Barr

Sub-Title: 

McCain Moves to Dictate Debate Timing, Agenda Should Be Rejected

With the recent proposal of Senator John McCain to postpone the first presidential debate, it is clear that the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) has no authority.

"For the past several elections, candidates have used the CPD as an official buffer to keep competition out of the two-party presidential contest," says Libertarian Party presidential nominee Bob Barr. "McCain publicly proved with his announcement what we've been saying all along: The candidates call the shots as to when to debate, where to debate and who to debate."

McCain Already at Odds With GOP Platform in Supporting Bailouts

Sub-Title: 

McCain-Palin Bailout Support Belies Talk of 'Change'

"Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin should read the platform of their own party before making a plan to deal with this most recent financial crisis," says Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party nominee for president. 

"The GOP platform clearly states that it is opposed to government bailouts and market regulation," explains Barr.  "However, McCain and Palin are in favor of the bailouts if they come with market regulation.  Apparently, being a 'maverick' means favoring 'big government.'"

U.S. Should Talk to Iran, Says Bob Barr

"While the Bush administration has steadfastly declined to engage in talks with the government of Iran, five former Secretaries of State - Republican and Democrat - recently exhibited a great deal more judgment and understanding of world affairs in calling for actual talks with Tehran," Libertarian Presidential nominee Bob Barr says.

“Talking does not mean sacrificing U.S. interests.  Rather, talking is a means to further U.S. interests,” Barr explains.

Barr on Ike: “Let the People Go Home”

"There is something inherently wrong with the government forcibly keeping people away from their homes and property," says Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party's nominee for president, in response to the government's continuing and heavy-handed attempt to bar Hurricane Ike evacuees from returning to their homes in Texas.

"There is, of course, an obvious risk to returning to a disaster area," says Barr. "However, government should not forcibly prevent evacuees from returning to their own houses and property.  It is their choice, for better or for worse, to return to their homes."
