Gas Prices Will Skyrocket Under Obama's Socialism

"High gas prices? It's the money supply, stupid!"

Well, Ron Paul did not and would not call anyone "stupid," like Bill Clinton and elitist Democrats are prone to do. But on the Glenn Beck Show the libertarian congressman showed he understands economics and he knows what to do about the high price of gasoline.

Let's put it into street language. If you sell your bushel of apples in a neighborhood where all the residents combined only have $100, you'll never get much more than $1 each for your apples. But if you sell your apples in a populous neighborhood where each resident has millions of dollars, it's hard to guess how much people will bid for your apples. You might sell some at $100 each, or more.

Ron Paul made it clear on the Glenn Beck Show that gasoline prices are high not only due to the demand for oil and refining capacity outweighing supply. He reminded us a perhaps more important factor is the ever increasing money supply, which also means the …

Ron Paul Continues to Impress

Ron Paul concedes Republican nomination, but continues campaign for liberty!

"The work of the Campaign for Liberty will take many forms. We will educate our fellow Americans in freedom, sound money, non-interventionism, and free markets. We’ll have our own commentaries and videos on the news of the day. I’ll work with friends I respect to design materials for homeschoolers.

Politically, we’ll expand the great work of our precinct leader program. We’ll make our presence felt at every level of government, where just a few people with our level of enthusiasm can make a world of difference. We’ll keep an eye on Congress and lobby against legislation that threatens us. We’ll identify and support political candidates who champion our great ideas against the empty suits the party establishments offer the public.

We will be a permanent presence on the American political landscape. That I promise you. We’re not about to let all this good work die. To the contrary, with your help we’re going …

New Libertarian Party Website Not Bad

New Libertarian Party Website

LP site a little more attractive, a little more red, white and blue!

The Libertarian Party has long sabotaged itself in many ways, one way being the ugliest colored and designed website of any serious political party. The website's new facelift at least recognizes that red, white and blue is helpful for an American political party and "pleasant to look at" is a minimum requirement for success. Good job with the redesign, as far as it goes!

Where it doesn't go is still a problem.

Liberty has long been dark blue on the LP logo, and the new page coloring draws out this natural color and makes Liberty actually appear dark blue. One of the ways the Libertarian Party sabotaged itself in the past was to allow the public to form an image of libertarians as "anarchists" (and therefore not worthy of political support). The old website coloring was so dark it almost left one with a mental picture memory of Liberty looking black, reinforcing t…

ELECTION STRATEGY MEMO #2
Strategic Inclusiveness

"Under no circumstances are you to win elections!" That's what the general public is saying to the Libertarian Party... true or false?

The truth is the majority of the voting public will vote for Libertarian Party candidates just as readily as they vote for Democrats or Republicans if libertarians campaign on the right issues in the right way.

One wrong way to campaign is to demonize the Democratic and Republican parties. There are many reasons for this. Some obvious practical reasons are that demonizing the other guys is very unpopular among voters, it makes Libertarian Party candidates appear unconstructive, and it is an open invitation to be shredded by the media.

A not so obvious reason is that it renders Libertarian Party candidates morally weak, having infected themselves with moral virus in the process of slinging judgments. Attack is impossible to initiate when coming from the experience of one…
