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.

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.

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 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…
