Volunteer Appreciation Spotlight

The Libertarian National Committee would like to recognize Daniel Kamerling as an outstanding and exceptional volunteer.  As a person who has been voting Libertarian for almost a decade, Daniel volunteers because he "thinks the Libertarian Party has a lot of good ideas to help America, and [he] wanted to spread those ideas beyond [his] own circle of friends and family." 

He has been coming into the National Headquarters office for the past few months, assisting with Operation Elect-Us and various other national events. 

The Skeptics

Not everybody is pumped about Obama's $825 billion stimulus plans, especially the part that includes billions of taxpayer dollars being spent by the government in the hopes of jump-starting the economy.  Here's what we've said about it:

Libertarian State Leadership Alliance Info

The Libertarian State Leadership Alliance (formerly LP State Chairs) will be holding its annual conference from February 27 to March 1, 2009, in Charleston, SC – and you don’t have to be a state chair to attend.  The conference is open to anyone who has an interest in the future and direction of the Libertarian Party.

Fred Barnes and the Legacy of Bush

As we move closer to Jan. 20 and the end of the Bush administration, the push to salvage the legacy of the Bush administration becomes stronger and stronger.  However, even from an objective standpoint, there is little that Bush has done in the last eight years that has made America safer, stronger or freer.  As a result, the clamoring to save-face have pushed Bush sycophants to unprecedented levels of absurdity.

Keynesian Economics Explained

The Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation recently released a video with Cato's Daniel Mitchell explaining the failed logic behind Keynesian economics.  It's a great watch, since Keynesian theory is the driving force behind President-Elect Barack Obama's latest stimulus plans:

“Why I’m a Libertarian”

This will be a promotional video for the LP and will be shown at CPAC and other major events.

Is Cutting Taxes Really Raising Taxes?

Are cutting taxes really raising taxes? It's an interesting proposition, and one that economists are discussing in relation to President-Elect Barack Obama's proposed stimulus plan.  In Obama's projected $775 billion dollar stimulus plan, up to 40 percent of the (borrowed) money is anticipated to go towards tax cuts, while the rest will be put into infrastructure projects like bridge and road building. 

Chaos in Gaza

Since its creation as a Jewish state in the late 1940s, Israel has been one of the main sources of tension and unrest in the Middle East.  Now, more than 50 years later, Israel once again finds itself at odds with its Palestinian neighbors, forcing the hand of the United States to show where it stands on one of the most polarizing issues in modern history.

Will the Feds Bust Santa Claus?

by George Getz (former Director of Communications for the Libertarian Party)
 
When Santa Claus comes to town this week, he'd better watch out -- because the federal government may be making a list of his crimes (and checking it twice), the Libertarian Party warned today.
 
"Hark the federal agents sing, Santa is guilty of nearly everything," said Libertarian Party press secretary George Getz. "The feds know when Santa's been bad or good -- and he's been bad, for goodness sakes."
 

California Case Represents Ills of Direct Democracy

There has been a recent push in third-party circles for a move to "direct democracy" in the United States.  Direct democracy, where the citizens govern by majority vote, is often favored by those who wish to circumvent elected officials who those individuals feel cannot properly represent the interests of every U.S. citizen.  In terms of direct representation, direct democracy truly does meet these goals.  After all, every citizen has a voice—technically.
