Libertarian Success Assured

If the world were free of socialists, "progressives," "do-gooders," and other would-be dictators, libertarians (like most people ... hint, hint) would have no interest in entering politics.

But in a world addicted to using government force in misguided attempts to "help people," many libertarians recognize the need to engage in politics for the purpose of self-defense, to keep the bad guys as well as the so-called good guys (well-meaning "do gooders") from legislating a slavery-burden of rules. regulations, decrees, taxes, wealth distribution, and other ego-vested insanity.

"But you have to have some government!"

A few libertarians claim the only government needed is individual self-government. They would change their minds quickly if they lived among unchecked roving brute force gangs. Governments evolve naturally for good reason.

Unfortunately, the Democratic Party in America, like socialist parties in other countries, has itself become a unchecked brute force gang, so even the polyanna "peaceful anarchy" libertarians might start seeing the need to be politically active in self-defense.

Libertarians who enter politics in self-defense seem to have two choices:

1. Recruit a number of very mature and very wise men and women into the Libertarian Party and find the one issue which will catapult the Libertarian Party into major party status as the Republican Party wanes (just as the slavery issue catapulted the Republican Party into major party status as the Whigs waned).

2. Develop their own maturity and wisdom, then wisely and maturely take over the Republican Party following the example of patient "progressives" who over many years have taken over the Democratic Party.

Divided ... libertarians are conquered, as their enabler role in the rise of Obama fascism has proven.

United behind a single strategy, libertarian success is assured. But which stategy will libertarians finally be sold on?

Welcoming an already successful politician, Bob Barr, was a smart move for the LP. The LP has become a bit wiser and more mature. But progress in this direction so far has not been nearly enough. The LP remains on balance more immature and unwise than not.

The most successful libertarian to date has been Ron Paul, and his popularity has been a direct result of his activism in introducing libertarian ideas into nationally viewed Republican debates. Can you imagine what would happen if libertarians quit trying to get the LP into Republican-Democrat debates and instead, like Ron Paul, entered Republican debates as Republican candidates in Republican primaries?

Nonetheless, Paul's unwise heavy anti-war focus only reinforced Obama's stand and made it possible for an unscrupulous far-left fascist to be elected. Speaking out strongly instead on a more clearly anti-Democratic Party issue will definitely yield much more self-defensive progress for libertarians.

Now maybe it's the LP's turn to get some attention, as self-proclaimed loud mouth Wayne Allyn Root, far from mature and wise but certainly charismatic, is beginning to gain national viewership:

It's hard to like the arrogance of Wayne Allyn but at least he is not waiting for others to change the world he sees. He is taking full personal responsibility for change being made. This ownership attitude reminds one of the Apostle Paul, or Ayn Rand.

If you are just waking up to your innate libertarian side and want to investigate deeper the underlying nonsense of Obama's religion of government worship, give yourself the pleasure of reading Ayn Rand's epic and masterful novel, Atlas Shrugged

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles

For the last election year studied (1998) some of the highest percentage of votes for Libertarian Party candidates were for candidates who had been studying free of charge the lessons of: Course in Political Miracles

“I did not understand what made me free, nor what my freedom is, nor where to look to find it. Father, I have searched in vain until I heard Your Voice directing me. Now I would guide myself no more. For I have neither made nor understood the way to find my freedom. But I trust in You. You Who endowed me with my freedom as Your holy Son will not be lost to me. Your Voice directs me." (Prayer from A Course in Miracles)

The Winning Tao Of Liberty

One who follows the Liberty Way with people, 
does not use weapons to enforce his will. 
Initiating force always leads to pain and suffering. 

With the Liberty Way where armies once gathered,
briars and brambles now blossom. 

A liberty leader exercises his leadership, 
and that is all. 
If he uses force, it is not to seize for himself. 

He skillfully overcomes liberty's enemies, 
but is not proud. 
His progress might be admired, 
yet he is not boastful. 
His work may even win accolades, 
still he does not brag. He fulfills his purpose for liberty, 
because he knows he has no other choice. 

The Liberty Way is fulfilling one's purpose without using force. 
The above is a liberty interpretation of a passage from the ancient spiritual classic Tao Te Ching.  As in all spiritual works which have been venerated worldwide down through the centuries a difference is recognized between (1) the use of force by ego determination for ego purposes, and (2) the use of force in defense of the freedom to act …

How Liberty Lovers Can Assure Winning

The freedom-loving Libertarian Party has been active 46 years, yet manages to gather only a minuscule percentage of the vote. Many would say this is pathetic.

The Republican Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives heroically saves America from a disastrous re-application of the ObamaCare premise that dictatorship of people's health insurance is government's business ... a rescue effort for which they should be presenting themselves as national champions. Instead they allow themselves to be portrayed as villains. Maybe not pathetic, but a mixed bag.

It's not that freedom is no longer considered a value among Americans. It's that modern freedom lovers haven't yet learned how to win fully, completely, without limitation. Liberty lovers achieve only partial victories because we do not have a winning mindset.

To achieve complete and lasting victory liberty lovers need to transform their minds and think like winners.

To do this we must first train ourselves to …

The Libertarian Way: So Much More Than The NAP!

How often do we hear the word "libertarian" being used in contexts relating to politics or some kind of political understanding? Even most dictionary definitions of "libertarian" emphasize political implications.

Yet libertarians will never experience the full personal benefit of their libertarian impulse, and never be completely successful in any political activism they undertake, unless they understand the Libertarian Way is much deeper and more basic than concern with political conditions.

Before there is politics ... before there are relationships ... there is life. When human beings feel their deepest-rooted inner desires (as opposed to addiction to intellectualism for the purpose of avoiding the depths of their being), they sense inside themselves a yearning for the fullness of life to shine forth and be experienced.

"Fullness" is the key. Liberal-progressive dictators will tell you their programs and agendas help people have a better life, but th…
