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"These provisions should be repealed, and if they're not repealed, they ought to be ruled unconstitutional by the courts.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

Promises, Patriotism and Power

While on the trail, candidate Barack Obama promised that he "would revisit the PATRIOT Act to ensure that there is real and robust oversight of tools like National Security Letters, sneak-and-peek searches, and the use of the material witness provision." As president, Obama can't be bound to anything tricky like the Constitution let alone his word.
