LP Monday Message: Memorial Day and Harry Browne

May 30, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Today, Memorial Day, millions commemorate fellow Americans who have served in our military and fallen in wars.

Addressing Memorial Day can be complicated for Libertarians, not because we don't love freedom and recognize that many have sacrificed their lives, but because we have opposed many of the policies that we feel have unnecessarily--even wrongly--put American soldiers in harm's way.

Noted Libertarian activist and Advocates Vice Chair George Schwappach passes away

The following is from LNC member Dr. James Lark:

George Schwappach passed away in early May. I have lost a friend and colleague, the Advocates has lost one of our "founding fathers," and the liberty movement has lost a great champion.

For Immediate Release

Libertarians say restore freedom, repeal Patriot Act

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

"Yesterday, Republicans and Democrats in Congress joined hands to renew several provisions of the Patriot Act. These provisions are unconstitutional and violate our right to freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures.

"These provisions should be repealed, and if they're not repealed, they ought to be ruled unconstitutional by the courts.

Conservatives and Social Policy - Arvin Vohra

"Many conservatives say they want government out of economic policy but want it involved in social policy. To me, that's ridiculous!" - Arvin Vohra

 

Join "Why We Left the Left"

The following is from Utah Libertarian activist Tom Garrison.

My name is Tom Garrison. I am putting together a book tentatively titled Why We Left the Left. I am looking to enlist folks who publicly identified with the left/liberalism at one point in their lives and have since evolved into libertarians. In an era wherein political divisions have hardened, it is instructive (and interesting) to read the stories of those who abandoned the left/liberalism and turned to the “free minds and free markets” of libertarianism.

Free Speech - Arvin Vohra

Arvin explains the Libertarian stance on Free Speech.
