West Virginia Update #1

It's been more than 36 hours since my plane landed in West Virginia and I began volunteering with the Barr campaign's ballot access drive.  Though coming to the end of my second day, it's already been an interesting experience in a state traditionally dominated by Democrats and with a history that makes its residents wary of the capitalism of mine bosses and exploitive coal companies.

Housing Bill Like 'Painting a Collapsing House'

The Libertarian Party is calling for the Senate to block a measure that seeks to stabilize the housing market at a cost of $300 billion.  "The bill is an atrocity, pure and simple," says Libertarian Party National Chairman William Redpath.

"The housing bill creates more regulation, more government and more mess, all with the taxpayer on the hook," says Redpath. "In the end, the government will have spent at least 300 billion dollars trying to solve a problem it created in the first place, without ever addressing why we are in this situation to begin with."
