Libertarian Answer To Obama's Job-Killing

The American public has been screaming "government needs to do something to create jobs!" President Obama, after two years of shoving his liberal-progressive agenda down people's throats, finally woke up after last November's election and said, "Oh, I get it! Americans want jobs!" At which point he redoubled his efforts to create business-government partnerships.

Unfortunately nothing dampens an economy and kills overall job creation more than business-government partnerships. Read "The Birth of Plenty," by William J. Bernstein; or to really understand read the greatest novel ever written, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged.

Libertarians have a seldom mentioned ideal: the separation of business and state. This does not mean that government forsakes its duty to prosecute fraud or assault when practiced by businesses. It does mean government allows the "invisible hand" of the free market to regulate business; government stands aside and says to business, "may the force be with you," knowing that the "force" of the free market is a much safer regulator of business practice than government could ever be.

Business regulation by the free market is infinitely more efficient because meddling politicians and government bureaucrats are incapable of knowing every single factor world-wide, past, present, and future which they would have to know to reasonably regulate. Therefore, they set up their petty little regulatory dictatorships and regulate blindly, which means insanely.

Things get worse when businesses join in cahoots with government. Suddenly there are no competitive forces to keep either the partnering businessman or bureaucrat honest. They reign like thugs. Even if they don't become totally corrupt, they relax into inefficiency and snail's pace reform. Government partnership with select businesses discourages those who do not get selected. Independent invention and entrepreneurship start dying out.

Libertarians tend to turn voters off with their incessant yapping about marijuana, seat belts and TSA screening. Yet all those pet issues easily become solved by applying the overall libertarian answer to saving and prospering any country: separation of business and state.

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

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…
