Not a Libertarian Manifesto –

May 14, 2014 Leave a comment

Review of Matt Kibbe, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto (William Morrow, 2014), ix + 262 pgs..

“Don’t hurt people” and “Don’t take their stuff” are actually the first two of six “rules for liberty” found in the first chapter of Matt Kibbe’s new book Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto. The others are “Take responsibility,” “Work for it,” “Mind your own business,” and “Fight the Power.” Chapter 1 is indeed somewhat of a libertarian manifesto,

but the rest of the book is standard conservative fare—just as I predicted.

Since Leo Donofrio filed the first eligibility challenge back in late 2008, the in-your-face Marxist, Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama, along with his America hating militant comrades, have been systematically destroying this republic.

The gutless cowards in the U.S. Congress — including the ones who have retired, i.e., Jim DeMint and Ron Paul — ALL know full well Soetoro was and is forever constitutionally ineligible to hold the office of president.


They’ve all received comprehensive, detailed packages with enough evidence – not speculation – to convene a grand jury ten times over. Issa,

McConnell, Rand Paul, Juan McCain, Pelosi, Schumer, Reid — ALL of them know he usurped the office as well as using forged documents and submitting a forged birth certificate for the whole world to see.Tens of millions of uninformed Americans voted for Soetoro in 2008, so they could brag about voting for “America’s first black president.


” Barry Soetoro is bi-racial; Caucasian and Negro. Those who genuflect at the altar of political correctness and wear “white guilt” like a badge of honor have overlooked that thorny little fact because it disturbs their self-righteous “I’m not a racist, I voted for a black man” comfort zone.Soetoro should never have been allowed on any ballot, but those of us who have followed this gigantic fraud from the beginning have watched judges, one after another, display either outright ignorance regarding the ‘natural born citizen’ requirement in the Constitution or act like the same flavor cowards as the entire U.S. Congress who did not stop the electoral college vote in January 2009 or 2013.

Beware the Internet Sales Tax


Heritage Foundation ^ | 4/19/2013 | Amy Payne

The Internet sales tax is back, and it could be the next big vote in the Senate.

The proposed law would enable states to force businesses to collect sales tax from customers who live in their state—even when the businesses have no connection to that state.


As Heritage President Jim DeMint has said, this violates the classic American principle of “no taxation without representation.” Retailers would be forced to act as tax collectors for states in which they have no voice.

Cruz & Rubio: Tea Party Desperados by Chris Rossini

April 14, 2013 1 comment

I remember so vividly, people with libertarian leanings cheering passionately that a new breed was coming in to change The Republican Party.

The Tea Party was taking Washington…small government, the Constitution…you know the rest…


Many of the cheers were coming from the younger generation, who really don’t understand how twisted politicians really are. That, yes, they will lie to you just to get your vote and support.


But, that’s what experience is for…the young, oftentimes, must learn their lessons the hard way. We all go through it.

“The new debate in the Republican party needs to be between conservatives and libertarians,” says Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.). “A lot of the libertarian ideas that Ron Paul is talking about…should not be alien to any Republican.”


Yet right after the 2010 midterm elections, the influential Tea Party favorite proclaimed that “you can’t be a fiscal conservative and not be a social conservative,” a comment that was widely viewed as a slap at libertarians. And South Carolina’s junior senator is also a staunch pro-lifer, has favored a constitutional ban on flag burning, and is on the record saying that gays shouldn’t be allowed to teach at public schools.

More recently, DeMint has been leaning libertarian. His new book, Now or Never: Saving America from Economic Collapse, is a warning to the nation that we need radical spending cuts (including putting defense spending on the table) or else face economic oblivion. And he was instrumental in getting Tea Party Republicans elected in 2010, including the most libertarian member of the caucus, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who also wrote the foreword to DeMint’s book.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who shocked Washington on Thursday with the announcement that he would resign his Senate seat in January to become president of the the Heritage Foundation, sent a parting shot at Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) over the “fiscal cliff” negotiations.
