Rand Paul has suddenly become aware of facts that do not exist. “Immigrants are drawn to the magnet of free market capitalism here in the United States,” he wrote in an op-ed last week.However, over half of Hispanics are literally telling us that they reject “capitalism,” and the two largest immigrant groups Hispanics and Asians are voting overwhelmingly for the more anti-capitalist of the two major parties…..

Barabbas… ~ Ron Paul: The Man Who Should Be…

Barabbas

Barabbas was the prisoner who was released by Pontius Pilate instead of Jesus. Pilate, who was the Roman governor presiding over the Judea, offered to release one Jewish prisoner in honor of Passover.

Presented with the choice, the crowds that had gathered chose Barabbas for release. And the crowds chose Jesus to be the one who would be put to death.

Barabbas is mentioned in all four Gospels during their descriptions of the trial of Jesus. In Luke 23:19, Barabbas is listed as being in prison for murder and for having started an insurrection in Jerusalem against the Roman government.

The Law of Unintended Libertarian Consequences

Over the past forty-five years since becoming politically aware, I have vacillated between conservatism and libertarian thinking in contemplating the world around me. I never feel completely at home with either camp when living out my own minarchist tendencies. It is of course oversimplification, but the former seem to think that everyone wants to be like us, and that the impulse for liberty is the yearning of the human spirit.

Evidently they are not paying attention to what is happening in the nation and around the world where dependency is in full march. On the other hand libertarians seem to relish their contempt for my own deeply held Christian faith and view debauchery not as an unfortunate side effect of freedom (my attitude) but rather celebrate hedonism as the whole point of liberty.

Even though I agreed with much of what Ron Paul had to say, all I could ever think is ‘this isn’t my guy’ for president -too odd a demeanor/un-electable- not to mention foreign policy positions that were appalling to a peace-through-strength Republican like myself, particularly statements made re. Iran and Israel.

 

 

 

 

 

But lo-and-behold, now we have fervent offspring Rand Paul who -while libertarian in his views- apparently saw wisdom in distancing himself from his father’s take re. the volatile Muddled East.. and that’s when I started listening to him.

As we pondered this question, we also wanted to know when and where the two groups intersected. We started with an informal survey. We asked several people the following question: when do you think the Tea Party movement began? They answered: when Rick Santelli ranted on the floor of the Merc in Chicago in February, 2009.

But our research into the history of the Tea Party took us back to 2004, to its first inklings as an organized force for rousing ordinary citizens to fight back against big government. In that year, Libertarian David Koch founded Americans for Prosperity, a nonprofit political advocacy group set up to educate the public on the principles of free markets.

I am a proud Reagan Libertarian. Ronald Reagan turned the worst economic slump since the Great Depression into the greatest economic turnaround and expansion in world history with one simple stroke of genius — the largest tax cut in U.S. history (ultimately reducing top marginal tax rates from 70% down to 28%). That tax cut benefited and motivated the groups that produce virtually all of the jobs and tax revenues in America — small business owners and taxpayers.

These are the very groups that President Obama chooses to punish, instead of reward. Obama redistributes money from taxpayers and small business owners to his voters — who create virtually nothing, pay almost no taxes, create no jobs, and ask for handouts and entitlements from cradle to grave. In short, Obama’s voters are bankrupting this once great country. This is precisely why the U.S. economy has fallen off a cliff. We are staring at the abyss — economic Armageddon, chronic massive unemployment, and worldwide depression. It is time for dramatic measures to stave off disaster, deficit, debt and depression.

Ronald Reagan the Libertarian…(Re conservative-libertarian)

Here’s a wonderful quote from Reagan in 1975 from Reason magazine. If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. I think conservatism is really a misnomer just as liberalism is a misnomer for the liberals–if we were back in the days of the Revolution, so-called conservatives today would be the Liberals and the liberals would be the Tories.

The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is. Now, I can’t say that I will agree with all the things that the present group who call themselves Libertarians in the sense of a party say, because I think that like in any political movement there are shades, and there are libertarians who are almost over at the point of wanting no government at all or anarchy. I believe there are legitimate government functions.

There is a legitimate need in an orderly society for some government to maintain freedom or we will have tyranny by individuals. The strongest man on the block will run the neighborhood. We have government to insure that we don’t each one of us have to carry a club to defend ourselves.

My fear was that if elected, Romney would start a war with China, Iran, and who knows who else. In contrast, Obama had four years to do that, and refrained. Another reason: at least we can trust Obama to be the socialist, interventionist, moderate war-monger that he has proven himself to be. In contrast, with Romney, he has been on every side of every issue; you just can’t trust that man to cleave to any principle. Also, I’ll never forgive Romney for what he did to my man, Ron Paul. Yes, yes, Romney might have been better on economic policy than Obama.

Neo-Confederate views and the Republican Party

 

Historian Nancy MacLean writes that “since the 1960s the party of Lincoln has become the haven of neo-Confederacy. Having long priding itself on saving the Union, the Republican Party has become home to those who lionize the slaveholding South and romanticize the Jim CrowSouth.”

 

GyGRet

GyGRet (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

 

This embrace of neo-Confederate views is not exclusively about race, but is related to a pragmatic political realization that the “retrospective romanticization of the Old South” and secession presented many possible themes that could be used as conservatives attempted to reverse the national changes initiated by the New Deal.[33]

 

RPREVOLU

RPREVOLU (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

 

After the defeat of Barry Goldwater in the 1964 presidential election and the successes of the Civil Rights Movement, national conservative leaders distanced themselves from racial issues, but continued to support a “color blind” version of neo-Confederatism. MacLean writes that “even into the twenty-first century mainstream conservative Republican politicians continued to associate themselves with issues, symbols, and organizations inspired by the neo-Confederate Right.”[34]

Most informed, decent Americans realize that we as a nation are faced this election with a choice that is entirely unthinkable on the one hand (Barack Obama), and profoundly unacceptable on the other (Mitt Romney), for President of the United States.

 

We can all agree — as moral conservatives — about the first choice. It’s the second that divides us.

 

Some of us have resigned ourselves to the now-cliché “lesser of two evils” rationalization and are planning to support Romney for purely pragmatic reasons: “Obama’s got to go, and Mitt is our only realistic hope of stopping the radical communist.”

 

gophum

gophum (Photo credit: GunnyG1345)

 

Some of us instead are third-party supporters who are aligned with someone like Ron Paul (as a write-in), Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party, or Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, in the hope of influencing public policy (if not the outcome of the election itself). And some of us are platform-minded Republicans who support the unifying published principles of the GOP, but can’t tolerate the thought of voting for Mitt Romney — who is arguably the most liberal-socialistic (not to mention opportunistic) Republican nominee ever, despite his feigned conservatism, and who, by the way, has distanced himself from the party platform.

Do the debates unfairly shut out third parties?

October 15, 2012 14 comments

The presidential and vice presidential debates are sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates, a nonprofit corporation that mandates that a candidate have at least 15 percent support in national polls to participate.

 

English: Gary E. Johnson

English: Gary E. Johnson (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

Since the CPD took over running the debates in 1988, only once has a third party candidate been allowed to participate: In 1992, when Ross Perot joined Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush on the debate stage.

 

The dominance of the two major parties at the debates has critics charging that the system is effectively rigged to shut out other voices. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party nominee for president and former New Mexico governor, has sued on anti-trust grounds to be included this year. The CPD, he said in an interview, is designed “to protect the interests of Republicans and Democrats.”

Libertarian Johnson could help Romney in Nevada

October 13, 2012 Leave a comment

While some may roll their eyes at Libertarian Party presidential nominee and marijuana-legalization champion Gary Johnson, recent polling shows that his presence on the ballot could have an effect on the presidential race, at least in Nevada.

English: Gary E. Johnson

English: Gary E. Johnson (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey released Wednesday found President Barack Obama has a four-point lead over Republican nominee Mitt Romney in Nevada (51-47 percent). But when Johnson is thrown into the mix, the former New Mexico governor garners three percent of the vote, largely pulling voters from Obama.

“When Gary Johnson’s included he gets 3 percent and actually takes mostly from Obama, pulling his lead over Romney down to 48/47,” PPP explained. “That could be something worth keeping an eye on.”

At every step, mainstream media attempted to censor information regarding the revolutionary Republican candidate nominee, in some cases even censoring the utterance of his name.

 

The candidate was even ousted from his speaking role at the Republican National Convention last week, where his delegates were thrown to the nosebleed seats of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and where he faced, still, further persecution as the Romney campaign’s lawyer, Ben Ginsberg, presented a vote to change party rules concerning the binding of delegates, the outcome of which was later revealed to have been predetermined.

Why Won’t They Leave Us Alone? by Eric Peters (“The simple answer is – because they can’t. Cloverism is a one-way street.”)

September 1, 2012 6 comments

 

The simple answer is – because they can’t.

Cloverism is a one-way street.

Libertarians, anarchists and others who hew to the philosophy of live – and let live – aren’t the least bit interested in controlling other people. It does not occur to them. In fact, it goes against their nature. It’s an affront to their very core because, after all, if you wish to be left in peace you must also wish that others be left in peace, too. And more, you must accept this as just – as the right and proper order of things. The liberty of others must be as sacred to you as your own liberty – and require a defense (when necessary) every bit as vigorous.

Say It Loud! I Discriminate! And I’m Proud! by Mike (in Tokyo) Rogers

July 30, 2012 Leave a comment

 

“It’s easy to be conspicuously compassionate if others are being forced to pay the cost”

~ Murray Rothbard

I admit it. I discriminate. I am kind and respectful to the elderly; I am helpful to the handicapped and I open doors for women.

When I go into a Japanese restaurant, I am a racist. I don’t want to see a white guy or a black guy or a Latino guy, or even a Korean guy making my sushi. Funny that. When I go into a Korean restaurant I certainly don’t want to see a Japanese making the food either (ask any Koreans you know if they agree with me).

And speaking of Seoul food, ditto goes for, say a German or Italian, or down-south real Soul food restaurant; and nope, I don’t want to see a guy named Yamazaki making the pork chops and gravy with collard greens.

Gary Johnson–Libertarian for President-Proven Budget Cutter From New Mexico

We met up with Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico and present Libertarian candidate for President. Gary was a former governor of New Mexico. During his two terms in office, of an overwhelmingly Democrat state, he vetoed 750 bills and exercised thousands of line item vetos. He was so effective that his opposition referred to him as Governor Veto. He ran for the Republican nomination this year, but he was kept out of the early debates by CNN and CNBC rules, which were created to keep out minor candidates.

 

 

As a result, he never attained the status of serious candidate as far as the Main Stream Media was concerned.

Many more know but will only back a perceived winner in today’s football mentality society.

And, many, many more still want their king, as they did in the time of Washington…(i.e., george)

I believe I, as an individual, am responsible only to vote my conscience, and not the guy I think may win over my choice.

Beyond that, and the eventual outcome…that’s not my department, and the result is in the hands of the ultimate higest paygrade!

Semper Watching!

COMMENTARY | Could Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, a former New Mexico governor, play a spoiler role in the 2012 election, especially out west? Most polls aren’t even giving him the benefit of the doubt, failing to include him as an option.

Devvy Kidd — End the Violence, Legalize all Drugs – A Pipe Dream

June 20, 2012 Leave a comment

There has been a major push in this country for many years to legalize all drugs – especially by Libertarians and two presidential candidates, U.S. Rep. Ron Paul and Gary Johnson (who dropped out early on):

“During a “lightning round” where candidates were asked to answer questions about the issues that would give them the most problems during the primaries, both libertarian candidates– Paul and former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson– were asked to defend their liberal stances on drugs. First was Rep. Paul, who Fox’s Chris Wallace confronted with his controversial position that drugs and prostitution should be legalized. His unapologetic response elicited cheers from the crowd, as he argues that, just as “you don’t have the First Amendment so you could talk about the weather,” civil liberties do not exist to protect personal rights upon which most agree.

…..The Libertarian Party wasted little time excoriating Paul: “No true libertarian, no true friend of liberty, and no true blue Tea Partier could possibly even consider, much less actually endorse or approve of, the Father of Obamacare, Big Government tax and spender, Republican Mitt Romney,” a statement exclaimed.

The 30-Day Reading List That Will Lead You to Becoming a Knowledgeable Libertarian by Robert Wenzel

June 12, 2012 Leave a comment

The list below will not make anyone a scholar in libertarianism or an expert in Austrian Economics, it is designed to introduce to the busy individual the essence of libertarianism. There are 30 articles listed below.

If one reads one article, slowly and carefully, per day, by the end of 30 days one should have a very strong grasp of libertarian principles and a basic understanding of Austrian economics. The list contains articles on a variety of topics, but does not cover all possible libertarian topics. More than anything it provides an overview of libertarianism and how libertarians think about issues of the day.

Don’t Send That Outraged E-Mail by Gary North… (“Blog it instead, I’m going to show you how. It’s free. It’s fast. It’s the way to go. Ask Matt Drudge”)

June 5, 2012 Leave a comment

Blog it instead, I’m going to show you how. It’s free. It’s fast. It’s the way to go. Ask Matt Drudge. He didn’t send an email to Newsweek deploring the spiking of an article. He posted his report — without objections — on his blog in 1998. This eventually got a President impeached. His site gets 6 million visits a day. Meanwhile, Newsweek is up for sale. Here is the great irony: DrudgeReport.com (two employees) is worth more than Newsweek.

So, you read a bonehead article. You’re convinced that what that author really needs is a piece of your mind. You think you can spare it. You have decided to sit down and write him an email.

Here are eleven good reasons not to do it.
