Libertarians sue Kentucky public television for First Amendment violation
A federal constitutional lawsuit, filed today against Kentucky Educational Television in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, stems from its new exclusionary policy regarding public debates, eliminating Libertarian participation. The plaintiffs in the case are Libertarian David Patterson's campaign for U.S. Senate, the Libertarian Party of Kentucky, and the Libertarian National Committee.
President Obama starts another war in violation of Constitution
President Barack Obama has taken the United States to war, now in Syria and Iraq, in violation of the U.S. Constitution — just as he did in Libya in 2011.
"Whatever differences they may claim, Democratic and Republican politicians are aligned when it comes to foreign meddling," said Nicholas Sarwark, chair of the Libertarian National Committee. "President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush both resort to war in the end."
Libertarian Party Chair Nicholas Sarwark says the Export-Import Bank should be allowed to expire later this year. Sarwark comments:
Most Republicans and Democrats are crony capitalists and protectionists, which means they love stuff like the Export-Import Bank. Its supporters include left-wingers like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and right-wingers like Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
The basic idea is, foreign governments harm their own citizens with export subsidies. So our government should harm us, too.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
