The mainstream media seems to love the traditional status quo robots (Bush, Clinton, Gore, Bush Jr., Obama, Romney) who got us into this economic crisis of epic proportions — while despising and disregarding non-traditional candidates such as Ron Paul and Herman Cain.
They make sure that only a Mitt Romney or Barack Obama with a certain look (well-groomed, attractive, nice suits, good hair), certain education (always Ivy League), and certain views (support the Fed, support corporate welfare, won’t cut spending too much, won’t rock the boat) are portrayed as “popular mainstream candidates.”
The candidates who don’t fit this traditional role are portrayed as crazy, kooky, and extreme with “no chance of winning.”
Yet, those status quo elitists with their Ivy League degrees and orthodox views led us right into this Great Depression II.… Read more ...
Since her election night loss to conservative Joe Miller, Sen. Murkowski and her political allies have floated the idea of her switching to the Libertarian Party to continue her run for reelection. Apparently, Sen. Murkowski is fairly flexible in her political loyalties and inclinations. (Her past support for libertarian policies has certainly escaped us.)
Yesterday, the 5-member Executive Committee of the Board of the Libertarian State Party meet in an emergency session to consider Sen.
I’ve stated for months now on hundreds of talk radio shows across the USA that Republicans and Democrats have morphed into the same party- I call them big and bigger, dumb and dumber. McCain and Obama offer the same ideas- just with a slightly different right or left tilt.
In a pair of press releases, Libertarian Party of Alabama chair Stephen Gordon addresses the Wall Street bailout proposal that was narrowly defeated yesterday in Congress, as well as the gas shortages currently taking place in Georgia and several Southeastern states.
Gordon blames gas shortages on anti-price gouging laws which several states have passed, pointing out that neighboring states which have not passed such laws have no gasoline shortages.… Read more ...
At the time of this writing, the U.S. House and Senate are poised to pass a $700 billion bailout to Wall Street. At the behest of President George W. Bush, the U.S. taxpayers are going to be on the hook for what can only be referred to as the biggest fraud in U.S.
Last week, I posted ten points (that were by no means exhaustive) for Congressional action immediately in the wake of the financial crisis now gripping our country. At that time, the Democratic leadership of Congress was prepared to adjourn the current legislative Session to campaign, without taking any action at all to put policies in place that protect U.S.
Clackamas, OR â€“ DAVE BROWNLOW, Candidate for U.S. Senate, calls the sudden appearance of Earmarks on the campaign trail nothing but a diversionary tactic.
BROWNLOW said, â€œHere we go again. The moment Republicans start to smell electoral trouble closing in on them, they begin condemning the obvious spending outrages like the â€˜Bridge to Nowhereâ€™ (which Gordon Smith voted to fund) in order to maintain the fiction that they are the party of smaller government.
You wouldn’t know it, but today is Constitution Day, the day we remember the signing of the US Constitution in 1787. In fact, when you look at America today, there’s hardly any sign of the Constitution at all.
The government in Washington
* makes war when it wants to,
* raises taxes when it wants to,
* raises the national debt to over $10 trillion when it wants to,
* throws American citizens in jail without trial when it wants to,
* bails out multi-billion dollar corporations like Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae, and AIG when it wants to,
* tortures prisoners of war when it wants to,
* and in numerous other ways violates the Constitution with impunity and denies the natural rights of citizens without being called to account.
Las Vegas, NV – Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin who is scheduled to address this weekendâ€™s upcoming Conservative Leadership Conference in Las Vegas, NV, will comment on the latest government bailouts and the accelerating meltdown of the U.S. financial system.
Baldwin will speak to the annual gathering of conservative and libertarian political leaders Saturday, September 20th at 3 PM local time and is expected to say, â€œOur entire financial system is based on an illusion, with a foundation built on quicksand.
We the people must now seize the time! We have always had the capability of determining our own destiny, but for various reasons, the people failed to elect the leaders who provided the correct political will. There was always some corporate or private special interest that stood in the way of the public good.
Clackamas, OR â€“ DAVE BROWNLOW, Candidate for U.S. Senate, comments on the ongoing, and rapidly accelerating meltdown of the U.S. financial system.
BROWNLOW said, â€œOur entire financial system is based on an illusion, with a foundation built on sinking sand. We spend more than we earn, we consume more than we produce, we borrow more than we save â€“ and we cling to the fantasy that this can go on forever.
