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 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…

Lifting Others Up To The Libertarian Way

Probably everyone has experienced moments of the fullness of life: the enthralling love that radiates from our heart when it seems we have met our destined soulmate, the joy that explodes out of our being when at the very last split second our team scores the improbable win of the century, the peace that flows from the depths of our soul when the sunrise suddenly bathes our mountain fishing lake and all seems momentarily "on earth as it is in heaven."

The fullness of life is within us, but doesn't too often emanate from most of us because our minds employ many devices for closing down our being. Yet there is a Way which leads us to constant heart and soul opening and nearly uninterrupted experience of the fullness of life. In common street language this Way is often called "live and let live." Although this encompasses all areas of life, when practiced in the context of people's political interactions it is called The Libertarian Way.

Notice that when we a…

Jesus Christ Does Not Favor Taxation

Heading into midterm election season in America we are faced with an illusory alternative: Caesar in Democratic Party clothing, or in some districts Little Caesar in Republican Party clothing. Apparently what makes the illusion saleable is the mistaken idea (used by Caesar as propaganda) that Jesus Christ was a socialist who supported taxation.

Fascists, communists, and progressives (all three branches of socialism), even after all the misery they have created the world over in the last 100 to 150 years, even now still aim a loud speaker toward us blaring the long broken record of their propaganda mantra: “Jesus was a socialist,” by which they try to convince us that Jesus advocated using government force or threat of force to redistribute wealth.

We’ve addressed the "socialist" issue in the past (See Jesus Christ's Love vs. Obama Style Socialism)

Nonetheless, the illusion could not be sold to the public if it were not for modern conservatives insisting that Jesus supported…
