TWEEDLEDEE and TWEEDLEDUM won in the NETHERLANDS! WHAT else is NEW? EUROPE needs a TRANSNATIONAL LIBERTY PARTY!

Der Spiegel, the unreadable magazine when I was studying Deutsch in high school (I had no problem reading Bild and there was always a pretty Fraulein on the back appropriate for a saved but not sanctified teenager!), is reporting that pro-Europe parties won the most seats in the recent Dutch parliamentary elections: The incumbent conservative-liberal […]

NEITHER TWEEDLEDEE NOR TWEEDLEDUM: WHY the PIRATE PARTY grows in GERMANY and ELSEWHERE! THEY are the RON PAUL/LIBERTY MOVEMENT in EUROPE!

I blogged on the German phenomenon of the Pirate Party (Here’s their website in German) earlier this year when they won several seats in the Berlin city state parliament (Berlin is a separate city-state due to the division of Berlin during the Cold War). Well, they did it again:  In the Saarland! Saarland is one […]

ANOTHER GREAT FREE MARKET STORY: SLOVAKIA (THEY DON’T WANT TO BAIL OUT GREECE, EITHER!)
