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 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…
