Libertarians to Occupiers: Crony capitalism is the problem

WASHINGTON - Libertarian Party Chair Mark Hinkle released the following statement today:

"I have been following the Occupy protesters, who call themselves the '99%', with interest.

"It's true that 99% of Americans do not enjoy the special benefits of crony capitalism. Crony capitalism is very different from real capitalism. In crony capitalism, government hands out special favors and protections to politically well-connected businesses.

LP Monday Message: Run for Congress in 2012

October 10, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

I assume you're fed up with the members of Congress.

I'm not just talking about how they are seriously harming our future, and the future of our children and grandchildren, with limitless government spending and debt.

I'm also talking about things like delegating warmaking powers to the president, sustaining the insane War on Drugs, and sitting idly by as the president violates every civil liberty he can think of.

Republicans Don't Support All of the Troops

by R. Lee Wrights

Despite all their patriotic proclamations of “support the troops,” the current crop of Republicans seeking their party’s presidential nomination really don’t support all of our troops, especially if the soldier doesn’t fit their moral configuration. During their last debate, a U.S. soldier serving in Iraq was booed, and not one of those on stage objected. Not one. They allowed the boos to go unanswered. Amazingly, not one even thanked the soldier for his service, a standard ploy for any politician at a public event.

Former Libertarian presidential candidates speak about al-Awlaki killing

The Daily Caller reports comments from Gary Nolan and Ron Paul, two past contenders for the Libertarian presidential nomination. (Paul won the nomination in 1988.)

2004 Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Nolan told The Daily Caller on Wednesday that if he had been elected president and were still in charge, terror leader Anwar al-Awlaki would be alive and in the United States today.

Government Makes Us Poor by John Stossel

Here's my fantasy: Libertarians are elected to the presidency and to majorities in Congress. What would happen next? Well, if libertarians were "in charge," you'd have more freedom and prosperity.
