Bob Barr Calls on Bush Administration to Obey Law

Last week, U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates rejected the Bush administration’s attempt to shield its officials from congressional scrutiny when he ordered former White House Counsel Harriet Miers to testify and White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten to turn over documents about the firing of U.S. attorneys. “In doing so, Judge Bates affirmed the basic constitutional principle that no one, including the president, is above the law," notes Bob Barr, the Libertarian Party's presidential nominee.

Gustav statement

As Hurricane Gustav approaches the U.S. shore, our thoughts and prayers are extended to all of those who will be impacted by the hurricane.  Times of disaster are often when the American people are at their best; helping one another to rebuild and recover.  No greater sign of American altruism is that which comes from the voluntary effort of neighbors reaching out to neighbors.

Should Libertarians be happy with Palin?

Should Libertarians be happy with Sarah Palin, the current Alaskan governor and now Sen. John McCain's running mate in his presidential bid?  The gut reaction is yes, Libertarians should be excited about Palin. Palin has a reputation for fighting government corruption, wears fur, shoots guns, eats moose and has earned the respect of our state affiliate in Alaska.

No Social Security Benefits for Illegal Immigrants, Says Bob Barr


Calls on Congress to Scuttle Secret Pact with Mexico

“Much of Washington’s most important work is conducted behind closed doors," says Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr. "As was the so-called Social Security ‘totalization agreement’ reached between the U.S. and Mexico, which would make hundreds of thousands of Mexican citizens eligible for Social Security."

Barr says the plan combines time worked in both the U.S. and Mexico to establish eligibility for Social Security.  "A Mexican citizen could work as little as 18 months in the U.S. and still qualify for a lifetime of Social Security benefits,” Barr explains.

Palin not the first female V.P.

In the discussion about Sen. John McCain's pick of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, it should be noted that the Libertarian Party vice-presidential nominee Tonie Nathan was the first woman ever to receive an electoral vote.  In 1972, Roger MacBride, a Republican elector from Virginia, cast his electoral vote for the Hospers/Nathan ticket.
