Ron Paul Wins in GA

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

He wasn’t on the ballot as a Libertarian, but no one can dispute the fact that aligning with Ron Paul and taking advantage of independents helped propel Paul Broun in a Georgia special election for Charlie Norwood’s old congressional seat.

Broun openly touted Ron Paul and libertarian ideals. This is huge. RP might not win the [...]

ATF Arrests Libertarian

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

This story is only a couple of weeks old, but due to the sheer silence from both the local and regional press (Dallas Morning News) about it, I figured it was as close to a Phil Smart-arrested story as there ever will be.

But here are the facts (discussion will be on Libertarian Politics Live! tonight [...]

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

My friend, Michelle Shinghal, (she’s pictured to the left) will be in Las Vegas this weekend, and while there, she’ll have lunch with the Libertarian Party presidential front-runner, Wayne Allyn Root (I know that just drives you guys nuts) to interview him for her LibertarianLady.com blog. Here’s the cool thing though: she wants user-submitted questions [...]

Ballot access in Washington state

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

So you’ve decided your state Legislator is a bum and you’re going to do something about it by running for office, eh? If you don’t have a wad of cash lying around, good luck.

If you can’t cough up hundreds of dollars to pay a candidate-filing fee, you do have the option of trying to collect [...]

Socialist push for immigrant rights

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Alright, well I know both me and this article are going to get slammed in the comments, but I think it’s necessary to post the other side of some of these issues. I know the position of most of you when it comes to immigration and illegal immigration, but here’s another side.

A Call to Arms - Literally

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

There are very serious Second Amendment-related issues being buzzed about on talk radio (George Nory discussed it on Coast to Coast Friday night), and I really think the three major third parties should say something about it. Libertarians and Constitutionalists are big pro-gun; not sure what the Green Party stance is, but it should concern [...]

Paul outraises most of the field

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

Now, I’m not normally one to post information on Ron Paul, but this I did find extremely interesting. From Politics1.com

The Hotline noted that Congressman Ron Paul’s® cash-on-hand tally is not only more than that of US Senator John McCain®—but Paul’s total is also more than the combined cash-on-hand total of Sam Brownback®, Mike Huckabee®, [...]

Geshlider Aiming for Paul VP Nod

Monday, July 16th, 2007

The bombastic Libertarian/Constitution Party activist Chuck Geshlider – many Libertarians and Constitutionalists know him well – views himself as a front-runner for the Ron Paul vice presidential nod—he said so repeatedly during a campaign “gig” in the Dallas area recently.

Perhaps Geshlider and Daniel Imperato should get together.

HoT’s Mike Nelson & Michelle Shinghal

Sunday, July 15th, 2007

I’ll get the video footage and photos up as soon as I get them, but I just have to say this about former Hammer of Truth bloggers Mike Nelson* and Michelle Shinghal: well, for one, Michelle is by far the hottest Libertarian I’ve ever met; two, Mike Nelson is by far the most successful Libertarian [...]

Interview with John Bootie

Saturday, July 14th, 2007

Southern Party of North Carolina endorses Vernon Logan for Forsyth County Commissioner

Saturday, July 14th, 2007

While Winston Salem Mayor Allen Joines brags about including Hispanic residents, including many who are not even here legally, he seems less enthusiastic about recognizing our own country, State and local history and Heritage of many citizens. . .

Stop illegal immigration through enforcement.
No welfare for illegal aliens.
No free health care for illegal aliens.
No [...]

Texas Tea Party

Friday, July 13th, 2007

From the Constitution Party of Texas today:

Texas Tea Party

A proven method of growing grassroots chapters is to have get togethers at prospects’ homes. Ask them to host a tea party where their responsibility will be to provide light snacks, coffee, and tea (wouldn’t be a tea party without tea).

This is a non-threatening and informal way [...]
