Tea Party Movement Libertarian God-send

"Constitutionally Limited Government; Fiscal Responsibility; Free Markets." - Core Values of the Tea Party Movement

These are values libertarians can support. Even anarchist libertarians can surrender for a season their pie-in-the-sky intellectual constructs and admit that severely limited government is far better than massive out-of-control slave-master government.

There has always been a huge pressing question for American libertarians who feel the urge to work for freedom. "Should I defend freedom by supporting a third party; or should I infiltrate and influence one of the major American political parties from within?" To libertarians, both are distasteful alternatives. Third parties have virtually no chance to gain traction, while the major parties seem impossible to effectively infiltrate.

But wait! A new alternative has surfaced. The Tea Party movement which has arisen in the last year basically as a slave rebellion now offers freedom fighters a mechanism for working within an enormously influential movement without having to pledge loyalty to any specific political party.

The evil politician, Mike Huckabee, has stated an important truth of American politics: the two major parties offer the only logical infrastructure for political progress. He observes that third parties would love to run a train, but have no tracks laid. Meanwhile, regardless of the corruption of their current leaders, both the Republican and Democratic Party have miles and miles of tracks laid over many, many years. Thus political progress these days requires supporting candidates who are willing to use the infrastructure of one of the major parties.

Socialists long ago realized this infrastructure truth of American politics and worked tirelessly to take over the Democratic Party. Obama is proof of their success. Huckabee and his religious (but sometimes not so spiritual) Christians would like to take over the Republican Party. But libertarians can stop Huckabee in his tracks, by working within the Tea Party movement.

Tea Party movement speakers have again and again insisted they are not interested in "social issues," by which they refer to the kinds of laws Huckabee's religious storm troops want to force on everyone. Tea Party activists are working only for limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.

In the Tea Party movement, libertarians have found a mechanism for enough success to give us breathing room.

To understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "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

I define Rand's beliefs as shown in Howard Roark's jury summation, then I add to that John C Calhouns discourse on government, and I have much of what I need to define America and how it grew so prosperous, as cited in The Changing Face of Democrats on Amazon and Too bad so many in America today rely on Old World philosophers like Rousseau, Robespierre, Marx and Obama.

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…
