Sometimes politicians learn quickly. Now that Republicans and the Democrats have figured out that paying Americans with their own money is a winning strategy, the ruling class has decided to use the tool again and again. Instead of stimulating the economy by slashing taxes or allowing businesses to operate fully, the duopoly is in the process of again returning us a small fraction of our money by way of a check with their signatures on it.
This new massive pay-off is even more bloated than before — weighing in at $1.9 trillion in funds forcibly extracted from the American people. Even as its own Congressional Budget Office predicts a major economic rebound this year, the strongmen in D.C. are dumping tax money into the economy, positioning themselves as the ones personally responsible for the economy’s return. Unemployment continues to fall in 2021, but Congress seeks to keep itself at full employment by attempting to buy goodwill with the national credit card.
This cannot continue. While D.C. gets spendy with your money, the national debt races toward $28 trillion. As politicians pretend to be generous with your grandchildren’s money, the Federal budget continues to dig itself deeper into deficit, with a funding shortfall of $736 billion for the current fiscal year through January.
When the first stimulus payments came out last spring, we asked Libertarians who could do without it to invest in Liberty and “Stimulate the LP” with their stimulus payments. The response was significant — our amazing donors made the initiative our most successful ask of the entire year!
Thanks to your incredible generosity last year, the Libertarian Party approaches you today as a stronger organization. Regional candidate trainings are coming together to provide Libertarian candidates with the tools they need to run and win, and an elected Libertarian now sits in a state legislature for the first time in two decades. We’ve watched membership explode in the months since then, as more and more people became alienated from the duopoly’s antics and joined the fight for Liberty and the Libertarian Party.
Today Americans are searching for a rational alternative to the two party system at all levels of government. We cannot afford to continue choosing between only terrible choices at the ballot box, and an increasing number of Americans are coming to that realization. As they see those who once represented their values have now turned citizens on each other dooming us to civil unrest, Americans are looking for freedom and peace.
The fight for control of Congress in 2022 will soon begin, and a myriad of races at the state and local level this year and next will soon be present around us. Your Libertarian Party is gearing up to be a major player in key races. Help us equip Liberty candidates for success with your most generous gift. Invest your “overstimulations” into the only party fighting for the individual liberties of all Americans, not just the wealthy and politically connected. Stand with Libertarians as we become a beacon of hope for all those politically homeless. The Libertarian Party is fifty years in and we have done great work, but there is so much more to do.
