For Immediate Release

 

Libertarian SOTU

 

 

 

” Libertarian Party Executive Director Wes Benedict issued the following statement today in response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address:

  Thanks to unprecedented levels of government interference and government coercion, Americans’ rights are violated like never before. We are harmed by taxes, regulations, prohibitions, and shocking privacy intrusions.

  Unfortunately, most of the harm and injustice of government occurs because too many Americans support existing government policies. We’re suffering under a tyranny of the majority. Our Libertarian hope is that we can convince enough Americans to change their minds. We hope voters will come to understand that government is force, and force is unjust.

Here are some of the problems we see.

  The government debt situation is atrocious. Government debt is a terrible thing, because it forces future generations to pay off debts they never agreed to incur. From 2001 to 2008, George W. Bush doubled the debt, mostly with the support of a Republican Congress. Since 2009, Barack Obama and the Democrats (and Republicans) have nearly doubled it again. It doesn’t matter whether Republicans or Democrats control the government. Libertarians would quickly balance the budget by cutting spending on everything, including entitlements and the military.

  Thanks to the work of Republicans and Democrats, America has declined in the Economic Freedom Index. We’ve been sliding for years, and now we’re down to #12. We’re below Australia, Canada, and Denmark. Libertarian policies would get us back to #1.

  Government should stop creating programs to fight economic inequality. Some economic inequality is natural and healthy in a free society. Actually, government often creates artificial inequality by granting special privileges to certain businesses or classes of people. Republicans and Democrats do that all the time. Libertarians prefer a level playing field.

  The employment situation is still pretty bad. Why? Because government gets in between employers and employees, and tries to dictate everything. Minimum wage laws, hiring laws, firing laws, subsidies, and business taxes all make it harder to create jobs and find jobs. These laws are supported by both Republicans and Democrats. Libertarians would eliminate the minimum wage, employment red tape, and business subsidies and taxes.

  Since 2001, the federal budget has exploded. Whenever the government spends money, it displaces it out of the private sector. That means the government is making more choices about how we use our resources, and free people are making fewer choices. That inevitably harms our economy. Libertarians would eliminate most programs, and cut spending on the rest.

  If there’s one thing we have learned since 2001, it’s that we can’t trust what government officials say. They lie. Bush and Cheney said there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. James Clapper (Director of National Intelligence) said under oath that the NSA does not collect data on Americans. Those are a couple of the most outrageous lies, but there have been many others. The more power government has, the more government officials will have the opportunity and incentive to lie. Libertarians would greatly reduce government power.

  Government should not be trusted to tell the truth about global warming, or to create restrictions in the name of fighting it. Look at the waste and environmental damage caused by government ethanol subsidies!

  It used to be that if you said the government was watching you, people thought you were paranoid. Now, partly thanks to the efforts of Edward Snowden, everyone knows it’s true. Between the Patriot Act, the IRS, the FBI, and the NSA (and probably other agencies as well), Americans have no idea whether ANYTHING they do is private anymore. Government should respect people’s privacy, not violate it. Libertarians would end foreign wars, and end the War on Drugs, which would take away most of the government’s excuse for spying. Libertarians would also repeal the Patriot Act and other invasions of privacy.

  What about Obamacare? The problems with American health care go far beyond Obamacare. The problem is the whole huge mess that government interference has created. For decades, the government has done nothing but undermine health care by interfering in the health care market, and creating mandates and prohibitions that override our choices. Obamacare took a bad situation and made it worse — but let’s not forget that it was already very bad. And that’s thanks to the efforts of both Democrats and Republicans. As stated in our platform, Libertarians would “recognize the freedom of individuals to determine the level of health insurance they want (if any), the level of health care they want, the care providers they want, the medicines and treatments they will use and all other aspects of their medical care, including end-of-life decisions.”

  Libertarians believe that government should have no involvement in education whatsoever. That goes double for the federal government. Unfortunately, the federal government massively interferes with education today: subsidies for preschool, subsidies for K–12 education, subsidies for higher education, and lots of mandates and regulations thanks to efforts like the Republicans’ No Child Left Behind law. Our children would be much happier and better educated if government would get out of the way. Libertarians would eliminate the Department of Education and repeal No Child Left Behind.

  Republicans and Democrats have also created a mess with immigration. The immigration debate has nothing to do with border security; it’s all about employment. Currently, millions of foreigners work here illegally, because Republicans and Democrats have made it almost impossible to do legally. Libertarians would make it very easy for foreigners to come here, live here, and work here.

  How about the military? The Libertarian attitude is pretty simple: the U.S. military should leave other countries alone, even if their governments are unstable, and even if there are people living there who hate Americans. We need to cut military spending a whole lot. Try getting Republicans or Democrats to support ANY cuts to military spending.

  Amid all this gloom, we do see a bright spot: the War on Drugs. In 2012, voters in Colorado and Washington passed initiatives to end prohibition of marijuana. Recently the New Hampshire House of Representatives did so too. A majority of Americans now believe that marijuana should not be prohibited. As time goes on, we believe that more and more Americans will join us in opposing the War on Drugs. We’re pleased President Obama is moving in our direction on this issue.

  All in all, the state of our union is a big mess created by Republicans and Democrats.Libertarians offer a path forward to peace and prosperity. Our 149 elected Libertarians nationwide work to implement libertarian policies directly. Hundreds of other Libertarians run for office each election cycle.”

Watch O’Reilly Factor Reporter Ask Unwitting Celebs How They Feel About America, Obama And Hillary

 

 

 Watters World Sundance Film Fest

 

” When “The O’Reilly Factor” correspondent Jesse Watters crashed the Sundance Film Festival to ask celebrities about current events rather than movies, he got some pretty entertaining responses. Some of the more humorous ones include:

  It’s always very interesting to see celebrities talking about politics. They aren’t any more or less informed than your average American, yet what they say is often perceived as more valuable just because their microphone is louder. If nothing else, it’s truly entertaining to see them caught off guard as some were in this video.”

 

 

    No surprises here from the “Celebrity Elite” but it is always fun to watch them reveal just how out of touch with the real world they are , especially iwhen it’s demonstrated by their own words . The “me too” chorus is alive and well in Hollywood .

Top 10 Outrageous Quotes From Nancy Pelosi

 

 

 

 

 

” Nancy Pelosi is trying to get some help on becoming more likable:

“ Lawmakers say she is consulting marketing experts about building a stronger brand. The most prominent of her new whisperers is Steven Spielberg, the Hollywood director whose films have been works of branding genius. Lawmakers said Spielberg has not reported to Pelosi with a recommendation.”

  I’m not sure why it takes a “marketing expert” to tell her the obvious: Stop being  such a dishonest political hack.

  And stop making ridiculous statements… People tend to frown on that.

  The following are ten outrageous statements made by Pelosi in just the few years. She should avoid making statements like these in the future:”

 

 

Here are the first two …

 

 

” 1.“The Bible tells us in the Old Testament, ‘To minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us.’ On this Earth Day, and every day, let us pledge to our children, and our children’s children, that they will have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and the opportunity to experience the wonders of nature.”

Nice. The only problem is the Old Testament contains no such quote.

2. “This initiative is funded by the high end – we call it Astroturf It’s not really a grassroots movement.”

Just gut-wrenching hypocrisy -Astroturf is all the Dem Socialists know, so naturally she accuses her political opposition of what her side does in spades.”

 

 

Here are the rest … put down your drink , we assume no responsibility for ruined keyboards or lap tops .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nancy Pelosi: ‘‘Waiting Hours Longer In The Emergency Room Will Allow You To Make New Friends!’’

 

Nancy_Pelosi_MAIN_HEADER

 

 

” Dear Fellow Americans,

     Among the many fears people are expressing about the Affordable Care Act is the supposed extra hours it will force people to spend if they have the misfortune of having to go to hospital emergency rooms.

     Critics claim that those enrolled in “Obamacare” (a term I personally dislike but have to use, or else the commoners out there won’t know what I’m speaking about) will be forced to sit even longer in hospital emergency care rooms due to doctors being forced out of the profession, thereby leaving emergency rooms understaffed, and so forcing people to overwhelm them with minor ailments, compounding insurance companies with tons of more red tape that will cause them to reject patients to regular doctors’ and specialists’ offices much more than ever.   And don’t forget the people now forced or choosing to join Medicaid that should never be on it, which will clog up emergency rooms, as the E.R.s  will become as common to them as visiting their pharmacies for a simple cold.

  Think about it, America: you’re wallowing in your local emergency room, vomiting your guts out from that tainted sushi you ate the night before, and next to you is some person crying over their left ankle that somehow got broken and now has their left foot facing backwards instead of frontwards –wouldn’t that be the perfect time to be like, “Hi, there, sir or ma’am!  What’s your name?  Want to be friends?” “

   The saddest part of this whole satirical piece is that it is quite easy to envision M Pelosi actually saying something this stupid . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who Read 1,582-Page $1.1T Spending Bill? Congressman: ‘Nobody Did’

 

 

 

 

” When asked whether he read the 1,528-page,  $1.1 trillion government spending bill before he voted for it yesterday, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) said, “Nobody did!”

On Capitol Hill on Thursday, CNSNews.com asked Blumenauer: “The omnibus bill yesterday, it was 1,582 pages, did you have a chance to read all the pages before voting on it?”

Modern Liberalism Explained By Evan Sayet

 

 

 

   This man explains liberalism as it exists in it’s present form . The above video is the condensed version of his speech . Below is the entire speech for those who’s interest is piqued .

 

 

 

Published on Jan 8, 2014

” According to David Horowitz, Mr. Sayet is, “simply the best political comedian working in America today”, and a more serious thinker. In the latter capacity, Evan delivered the speech to the Heritage Foundation which Andrew Breitbart called “one of the five most important conservative speeches ever given,” a lecture that is now by far the single most viewed talk in their history. Evan has written and/or produced in just about every medium there is, including TV’s “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher” (for which he apologizes), the multiple festival award-winning documentary “Dodo” and authored The Kindergarden of Eden: How the Modern Liberal Thinks (Evan will be selling and signing his new book). He was also the original writer for the long-running, cult classic game show, “Win Ben Stein’s Money.” Evan lives in Los Angeles.”

Why Pols From New Jersey Aren’t Born To Run

 

 

” Indeed, over the past decade or so, New Jersey has started to earn belated props in the public imagination, with television shows such as The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, and even Jersey Shore using the state as a backdrop for meditations on the American Dream. The recent and quick rise of Gov. Christie himself speaks to what might even be considered a New Jersey cultural bubble. He’s the first serious presidential contender to come out of New Jersey since Woodrow Wilson.

  Yet the Garden State — insert a not-inaccurate joke about the entire place being a Superfund toxic waste dump here — has been a national punchline at least since Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton rowed across the Hudson River from New York to shoot it out in Weehawken. (Needless to say, Burr, a native of Newark who happened to be U.S. vice president at the time, won.) “

Tonight On ‘The Kelly File': Marcus Luttrell Responds To Left’s Criticism Of ‘Lone Survivor’

 

 

 

” Some on the left are criticizing Lone Survivor, dismissing it as “war propaganda.” 

Earlier today, the mother of one of the three fallen Navy SEALs responded on Fox and Friends.

Tonight on The Kelly File, don’t miss the response from the real-life “Lone Survivor”Marcus Luttrell.”

 

 

Below is the interview with Matthew Axelson’s mother Donna , from Fox and Friends . You can read the accompanying article here .

 

 

Donna Axelson Interview

 

 

 

Here is an excerpt .

 

” Later in the interview, Steve Doocy asked for her opinion on some criticism of the movie, with some on the left characterizing it as “war propaganda.” 

” Hogwash. Marcus [Luttrell] has been very careful about not bringing politics into this at all. This is just a story about what our military men do. Because as an all-volunteer military, these are men and women who want to do this, who believe in America and want to protect us from additional 9/11 kinds of attacks. It has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with the courage and bravery of our military men and women,” she said.”

Where’s The Media Outrage?

 

Tea Party %22Rapists%22

 

 

” In an outrageous ad aired on the local Washington D.C. NBC affiliate WRC-4, Virginia Democratic state senate candidate Jennifer Wexton – running to replace newly elected Virginia attorney general Mark Herring – made a shocking comparison between violent rapists that she once tried as a prosecutor to “Tea Party Republicans” in the Virginia legislature. [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

  After describing women being assaulted and “traumatized again by facing the criminal in court,” Wexton made this declaration: “…as a prosecutor I put violent offenders in prison. In the Virginia Senate, I’ll fight just as hard against Tea Party Republicans who would take away a woman’s health care and her right to choose, even in cases of rape and incest.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Republican Identification Lowest In At Least 25 Years

 

Party Identification, Yearly Averages, 1988-2013

 

 

 

” Forty-two percent of Americans, on average, identified as political independents in 2013, the highest Gallup has measured since it began conducting interviews by telephone 25 years ago. Meanwhile, Republican identification fell to 25%, the lowest over that time span. At 31%, Democratic identification is unchanged from the last four years but down from 36% in 2008.

  The results are based on more than 18,000 interviews with Americans from 13 separate Gallup multiple-day polls conducted in 2013.

  In each of the last three years, at least 40% of Americans have identified as independents. These are also the only years in Gallup’s records that the percentage of independents has reached that level.

  Americans’ increasing shift to independent status has come more at the expense of the Republican Party than the Democratic Party. Republican identification peaked at 34% in 2004, the year George W. Bush won a second term in office. Since then, it has fallen nine percentage points, with most of that decline coming during Bush’s troubled second term. When he left office, Republican identification was down to 28%. It has declined or stagnated since then, improving only slightly to 29% in 2010, the year Republicans “shellacked” Democrats in the midterm elections.”

 

 

A party that stands for nothing cannot expect anyone to stand for it . Do you hear us Mr Speaker ?

Author Of ‘The Anarchist Cookbook’ Wants His Book Out Of Print, Realizes Premise Is Flawed

 

 

” Forty-four years after penning “The Anarchist Cookbook,” author William Powell says he wants the infamous book off the shelves and out of print.

  The Cookbook, which contains detailed instructions for the manufacture of various types of home-built explosives, was an outpouring of Powell’s anger towards the U.S. military and “unnecessary government-sanctioned violence.” But as time passed, he realized the premise of his book was flawed, The Guardian reports.

  “The anger that motivated the writing of the Cookbook blinded me to the illogical notion that violence can be used to prevent violence,” Powell wrote for The Guardian. “

 

    There exists a school of thought that the State has grown exponentially more powerful and oppressive over the past four decades and perhaps the need will soon arise for the lessons in protest and disruption conveyed in Powell’s book .

Arapahoe High Gunman Held Strong Political Beliefs, Classmates Said

 

 

 

 

” In one Facebook post, Pierson attacks the philosophies of economist Adam Smith, who through his invisible-hand theory pushed the notion that the free market was self-regulating. In another post, he describes himself as “Keynesian.”

” I was wondering to all the neoclassicals and neoliberals, why isn’t the market correcting itself?” he wrote. “If the invisible hand is so strong, shouldn’t it be able to overpower regulations?”

  Pierson also appears to mock Republicans on another Facebook post, writing “you republicans are so cute” and posting an image that reads: “The Republican Party: Health Care: Let ‘em Die, Climate Change: Let ‘em Die, Gun Violence: Let ‘em Die, Women’s Rights: Let ‘em Die, More War: Let ‘em Die. Is this really the side you want to be on?

  Carl Schmidt and Brendon Mendelson, both seniors at Arapahoe High, knew Pierson. They said he had political views that were “outside the mainstream,” but they did not elaborate.”

Letter From The Chair – A Lot To Be Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving, Libertarians!  

 

” Here’s something to be thankful for: we’ve broken 26,000 registered Libertarians in Colorado!  That’s an increase of 24% since January 1st, an incredible accomplishment for an off-year for legislative and gubernatorial elections. And how exactly did we do on the propositions in this year’s election?

  Modo vincis, modo vinceris :- 

  Amendment 66 failed by 2 to 1, and that’s a very, very good thing.  It’s kinda hard not to notice a billion-dollar juggernaut rumbling down towards you, so it’s hard to miss when it crumbles to dust just short of impact. $10 Million was spent by special interests out-of-state on this tax hike. That’s $33.00 per vote. This is money that could have been donated to the very schools they claim to be helping.

  But we know they’ll be back again in another couple of years, and Referendum AA – the municipal version of the Tax-the-Hell-Out-of Demon-Weed proposition – did pass 2 to 1 in many cities. So the question we all have to ponder is: Has the “Great Recession” made enough of a lasting impression that this generation will resist not just this wave of money grabs, but the next one as well?  Or do we need to give some serious thought to what we ought to be saying to our friends and family to fully educate them about the hollow promises of government shell games?

  We may have put a partial end to the drug war in exchange for some degree of regulation, but with taxes approaching 50% – the lion’s share of which is going into more bureaucracy, not education – the cities that passed this law have effectively killed their markets for marijuana retailers by pushing the business both underground and out of town.  It’s one big shell game on every level, and we need to keep pointing that out.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From StoryLeak

 

 

 

” I recently appeared on the Alex Jones Show to break down how political correctness, along with other techniques employed by the mainstream media and politicians at large, really break down into sociological mind control. Add this into the mega dosing of children and adults alike on antidepressants, and you have a percentage of the population that will never question their rulers.”

   This is a powerful discussion that points to and dissects the system that has been established to break down societal bonds and produce new generations of indoctrinated , unthinking , unquestioning citizen-serfs . 

   The common comparisons between our current government/media oligarchy to past despots such as Stalin and Hitler and Mao , according to this video , is more apt in many ways than most people will allow themselves to believe . However as this video brings to light , technology and the “Long March” have produced a Leviathan State orders of magnitude more dangerous to liberty than the aforementioned tyrants could have dreamed of . 

    As horrendous as those three greatest mass murderer’s reigns were , each could be ended by killing the leaders , while here in the US a bureaucracy of such complexity combining the State , the media , academia and corporate cronies has combined to create a Hydra with so many heads that it would seem near impossible to slay . 

    Admittedly the video will eat up a sizable portion of your day (45:00+/-) but it is well worth your time .

A Fascist Police State…And We’re Partly Responsible

 

 

 

” Likewise, those of us who treasure America as the land of the free and the home of the brave, see contemporary statists, those who are actively engaged in expanding centralized governmental authority at the expense of personal liberty, as adulterates and enemies of freedom.  They are “fundamentally transforming America” into a fiercely potent centralized government that was never intended for this republic; a fascist police state that, regulates, coerces, bullies, and spies on its citizens. And they have done it surreptitiously, clandestinely, and dishonestly. How any thinking person, who professes love for America, can accede to the destruction of American idealism perpetrated by those who have a stated objective of “fundamentally transforming” the nation is beyond my comprehension.

  And for those on the left who are obsessed with race, obsequiously regurgitating racist epithets against we who love what America used to stand for, it makes no difference what color the skin is of the torchbearer leading the destruction of American values. He could be green, white, red, or purple, and we’d still object to the dismantling of the country, as we’ve observed the past few years. Stated more succinctly; you mess with what made America great, and you start simmering a pot of patriotic rage until it reaches a boiling point, and race has absolutely nothing to do with it.

  Conservatives have allowed this transformation to occur, by acquiescent reticence. I think no one has stated it more perfectly than Albert Einstein who said, “The world is a dangerous place not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
