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.

After House Republicans conceded on Tuesday that they would bring a debt ceiling bill to the floor for a vote without attaching policy concessions, the tea party seemed in open revolt, calling for the replacement of Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).

Meanwhile, incumbent Republican senators have quietly been working behind the scenes to cut off their funding sources.

Are We Rome Yet?… “”We have presidents of both parties legislating by executive order, saying I’m not going to enforce certain laws because I don’t like them. … That open flouting of the law is dangerous because law ceases to have meaning. … I see that today. … Congress passes huge laws they haven’t even read (as well as) overspending, overtaxing and devaluing the currency.” The Romans were worse. I object to President Obama’s $100 million dollar trip, but Nero traveled with 1,000 carriages.”

Unfortunately, the fall of Rome is a pattern repeated by empires throughout history … including ours?


A group of libertarians gathered in Las Vegas recently for an event called “FreedomFest.” We debated whether America will soon fall, as Rome did.

“It doesn’t go far enough and whenever you see government officials lawyering up and pleading the Fifth you know that the crisis and the scandal goes far deeper than what appears to be on the surface,” Kibbe said in an exclusive interview.

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.

Presidential race loses fizz for Tea Party

October 9, 2011 1 comment

With their favored candidates for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination lagging or out of the race, many U.S. Tea Party activists are shifting focus to the struggle for control of the U.S. Senate.

The fizz has gone out of the presidential contest for some supporters of the fiscally conservative movement now that former Alaska governor Sarah Palin is not running and Texas Governor Rick Perry and congresswoman Michele Bachmann are slipping in polls.

“No one is going to get perfect in a general election candidate. That is why we think the Senate is a better place to focus,” said Matt Kibbe, president and chief executive of the libertarian FreedomWorks, a Tea Party group.

In the 2010 mid-term elections, Tea Party opposition to President Barack Obama’s policies played a big role in slashing the Democrats’ majority in the 100-member Senate to just six seats and eliminating their majority in the House of Representatives.

With 23 of the 33 Senate seats up for grabs next year now held by Democrats, and a wave of public hostility to incumbents, Tea Party activists said they looked forward to more Republican gains in 2012.
