The GOP Can Improve Ballot Access (Without Helping those Pesty Libertarians)!

“Over the past decade [blogger’s note: about 1990-2000], roughly 35 percent of state legislative seats in the nation were uncontested in the general election.”  p. 1 *** “The democratic system operates with an implicit expectation that elections will offer voters a choice between or among candidates, and by extension, between or among policy positions.  Uncontested […]

5 Reasons Why the Libertarian Party Continues to Fail Miserably

While Mitch McConnell and the Republican Establishment may have succeeded in crushing the TEA Party, dragging Republicans voters further left and winning on a vacant and ambiguous platform, the Libertarian Party has simply crushed itself with its own detachment from the human experience of average Americans. Barely averaging 3% of the vote in local and […]

The Sarvis Effect on the Warner-Gillespie Senate Race

Libertarian candidates have always been an interesting fly in the Republican ointment. Most Republicans truly believe that a Libertarian candidate always drains votes from Republicans. Therefore, Republicans often spend (waste) money attacking Libertarians and trying to convince them to drop out so the Republican can win. The only problem is, Libertarians take as many votes […]

Obama’s Foreign Policy is Libertarian Lite

I have some pretty strong Libertarian leaning principles that I try to live by. I am decidedly Conservative but understanding what the founders intended for this country to be can’t help but bring out the Libertarian in anyone. And it also shows how far off course we have gone. In so many areas we have […]

Two hours ago, around noon (est), the Washington Post published its’ latest poll on how the American People feel about the direction of our nation, and who we trust the most with our highest priorities.

It’s not too often when RedState gives a Libertarian good news but they did.  Here is the story from the email box of the man himself, Erick Erickson (actually written by Neil Stevens)! Stevens’s concern is that Democrats are overpolled compared to the population.  He’s probably right.  I have tremendous respect for what RedState does. […]
