by R. Lee Wrights

BURNET, Texas (Jan. 21) – Despite all the hysteria, wailing and gnashing of teeth from Washington warhawks, there are no spending cuts proposed in the defense budget nor is there any change at all in our defense policy.

Lee Wrights: Republicans don’t support all the troops

by R. Lee Wrights

BURNET, Texas (Oct. 7) – Despite all their patriotic proclamations of “support the troops,” the current crop of Republicans seeking their party’s presidential nomination really don’t support all of our troops, especially if the soldier doesn’t fit their moral configuration. During their last debate, a U.S. soldier serving in Iraq was booed, and not one of those on stage objected.… Read more ...

Lee Wrights: Waste and fraud pervade wartime contracting

Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few … No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” (James Madison)

Roger Gary: Statement On Bin Laden’s Death

From a media release from Roger Gary‘s presidential campaign:

I join my fellow Texans and my fellow Americans in being satisfied that a man responsible for mass murder has received his due. I congratulate those who brought about this day for their bravery and skill.

But the fight goes on: the fight against the notion, held by far too many, that evil means are justified if one considers one’s goals to be noble or one’s cause to be correct.… Read more ...

Libertarian Party: Obama kowtows to military-industrial complex

WASHINGTON – The Libertarian Party criticizes the Obama administration’s recent statement demanding more military spending from House Republicans.

The administration claims that the Republican spending bill currently under debate does not provide enough military funding. According to the administration, "The bill…would reduce funding for the Department of Defense to a level that would leave the Department without the resources and flexibility needed to meet vital military requirements."

As a percentage of GDP, military spending under Obama has been higher than it was during any year of the hawkish George W.… Read more ...

Ralph Nader and Ron Paul on Freedom Watch: Alliance Against Corporatism

From Raw Story via Poli-Tea:

on Wednesday’s broadcast of Freedom Watch on the Fox Business channel, Judge Napolitano sat down for an amiable interview with Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and Ralph Nader to discuss a progressive-libertarian alliance in the 112th session of respective chambers in Congress.

Nader, who has recently called this coalition “the most exciting new political dynamic” in the US today, explained that it works well because both groups stand against corporatists who believe government should be run in the interests of corporations.

Libertarians: Obama is shockingly pro-war

WASHINGTON – Following President Obama’s “end of our combat mission” speech, Libertarian Party chairman Mark Hinkle released this statement:

“President Obama needs to stop lying. In his speech, he repeated the ridiculous and false claim that the U.S. combat mission is over in Iraq. He seems to think that if he keeps talking about the war in a nice way, then the war isn’t really happening.… Read more ...
