The Libertarian Republican Party

(Blue = Democrats    Red = Republicans)

If you want to sabotage the cause of liberty, then stubbornly hold onto the misconception that Republicans are every bit as anti-liberty as Democrats.

Far from true!

Although it may be correct perception that misguided GOP leadership has been inept in recent years when dealing with Democrats and the mainstream media, nonetheless the vast majority of Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives hold strong liberty-oriented beliefs, as the above chart based on their voting record shows. This 2015 Liberty Index was compiled by Clifford Theis, Professor of Finance and Economics at Shendendoah University, an author at the Independent Institute and a long-time liberty activist legend.

Unfortunately, Professor Theis does not abandon the false dichotomy between social liberty and economic liberty (as if social issues don't have an economic impact and economic issues don't have social influence), but he does create for each member of the House a "both sides of the same coin" combined score.

To read the entire summary and explanation click here: Liberty Index

The top 20 liberty scorers in the U. S. House of Representatives were Republicans, while the worst liberty scorers were all Democrats who Professor Theis refers to as "progressive socialists."

Please consider contacting and expressing your appreciation to these top 20 liberty scorers:


These are liberty's champions, individuals who have done what it takes to get themselves elected to positions of influence and who do their best to fight for liberty where it really counts, in the U.S. Congress.

In the U.S. Senate, the highest liberty scorers were Republicans Rand Paul of Kentucky with a combined score of 93, Ted Cruz of Texas (92), and Mike Enzi of Wyoming (92). As with members of the House, Republican senators were vastly higher liberty scorers than Democrats.

To advance the cause of liberty it is important to abandon the faulty and misleading liberal vs. conservative spectrum and teach the correct and meaningful spectrum of libertarian vs. progressive socialist. Please share this information from the Liberty Index as widely as possible.



fas-cism
noun
a socialist governmental system led by a dominant elite which seeks to control industry and commerce, and uses legislation and governmental decree to force Utopian programs on people.


free-dom
noun
one's natural state of being; a governmental system reflecting one's natural state, including voluntary funding and voluntary willingness to join and cooperate with minimal intrinsic rules, but with no programs of "good intention" forced on people "for their own good."



If you are newly waking up to your innate libertarian core and want to investigate deeper the underlying nonsense of the liberal-progressive 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


Interesting factoid: 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…
