Posted on 10/09/2005 3:00:11 PM PDT by ct235. LISTEN, Libertarian! By Tim Condon October 9, 2005 Libertarians are such losers. I know, this is not a way to endear myself to them, even when my best friends are all libertarian or near-libertarian. But success is staring them in the face, and a significant proportion of them deploy massive brainpower and argument to make sure that nothing ever gets better. Its incredible. LISTEN, libertarian! Its over 30 years later, and were still hearing endless platitudes that keep us from gaining political power in the service of individual freedom. All we need to do is a better job at selling our product! the activists say. But weve been trying to sell our product for decades, and the people of America arent buying. All we need to do is a better job of educating people about what we stand for! say the activists. But after 30 years of libertarian presidential candidates and campaigns, the voters are more than aware of what we stand for. We are caught ...
More than half of libertarians say government regulation of business does more harm than good (56 percent vs. 47 percent). However, four-in-ten libertarians say that government regulation of business is necessary to protect the public interest (41 percent).. More than half say government aid to the poor does more harm than good by making people too dependent on government assistance (57 percent vs. 48 percent), while almost four-in-ten (38 percent) say government aid does more good than harm because people cant get out of poverty until their basic needs are met.. Libertarians are more supportive of legalizing marijuana than the public overall (65 percent vs. 54 percent). But they are also more likely than the general public to favor allowing the police to stop and search anyone who fits the general description of a crime suspect (42 percent of libertarians, 41 percent of the public) and to think it is best for the future of our country to be active in world affairs (43 percent of ...
I think you have to go on the assumption that the majority of Libertarian votes would go to a Republican candidate if the Libertarian candidate was not on the ballot, said Dick Wadhams, a political strategist and former state GOP chairman. I think history would dictate that.. I think in a race as close as this one, clearly that Libertarian candidate affected the outcome and handed it to a Democrat.. There were Libertarian candidates in 40 state House races and 12 in state Senate races, but the Hudak-Sias matchup was the only contest in which Libertarian votes arguably changed the outcome.. There were also American Constitution Party candidates in two Senate races and eight House contests, and two House races with unaffiliated candidates. But the margins of victory for the winners in those races were large enough that the involvement of third-party candidates had no effect on the outcome..

And we should - then every community in the country could then start doing major weapon sweeps and then destroying the weapons, not selling them.. When we got organized as a country and we wrote a fairly radical Constitution with a radical Bill of Rights, giving a radical amount of individual freedom to Americans …And so a lot of people say theres too much personal freedom. When personal freedoms being abused, you have to move to limit it. Thats what we did in the announcement I made last weekend on the public housing projects, about how were going to have weapon sweeps and more things like that to try to make people safer in their communities. - MTVs Enough is Enough!, 22 March, 1994. We cant be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans… - USA Today, 11 March, 1993, pg. 2A. If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the governments ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees. - 12 August, 1993. You ...
Levy therefore argues that libertarians and liberals can find common ground in opposing a variety of government interventions that restrict liberty in order to benefit the non-poor, often at the expense of the disadvantaged. I am sympathetic to Levys argument and have made similar points myself (e.g. - here and here). The problem is that the vast majority of liberals do not agree; most of them support a wide range of government interventions that are intended to benefit groups other than the poor, sometimes even at the expense of the latter. Thats one of the reasons why Brink Lindseys original 2006 proposal for a liberaltarian alliance found few if any takers on the left, even though it was based on much the same premises as Levys (libertarians agreeing to accept a welfare state that benefits the poor in exchange for liberals joining libertarians in opposing a wide range of other interventionist policies). This state of affairs could change if liberal thought moves in a more pro-market ...
My dear friend Don Quixote retired with his beloved to warmer climes. I miss him a great deal. I especially miss our lunches together. We still talk on the phone, but its not the same as the wandering conversations we had about politics, morals, philosophy, law, Dancing With The Stars, computer games, and whatever else seemed interesting on a given day. One of our most memorable conversations was about governments role in morality. Don Quixote is more of a libertarian than I am, although I consider myself fairly libertarian. I dont remember the details of the conversation, but my takeaway was that government legislation should not be hostile to traditional morality, but its not responsible for morality either. Citizens are responsible for morality, through peer pressure and, yes, shame.. I still believe that today, so I was very gratified to read Nick Gillespies post about libertarians and morality. What prompted Gillespies post was a New York Times piece, by Richard Reeves, a liberal ...
RSA USA We all know the vast majority of Internet-of-Things devices havent anything more than a fig leaf for protection. Now the unlikeliest of folks are calling for rules to improve IoT security: libertarians.. In a session today at the RSA infosec conference in San Francisco, Olaf Kolkman, the Internet Societys chief internet technology officer, and Bruce Schneier, IBM Resilients CTO and the bloke who literally wrote the book on cryptography, found themselves in an unlikely alliance on the matter of IoT security.. Essentially, Kolkman has called for strict industry requirements to bring IoT defenses up to scratch. Schneier, an anti-regulation libertarian, agrees, yes, its time to draw up rules for internet-connected gadgets.. A lot of us have been libertarian for years and dont want regulation, but that wont be an option when the internet crashes into the real world and people get killed, Schneier said. You cant talk about regulation versus no regulation - that ship has sailed. Now ...
The Libertarian National Committee. The Libertarian Party calls on the Republicans and Democrats to become aware of the tremendous changes Americans are dealing with in their lives, and to make a similar change in the way Congress operates.. Firstly, it is critical that Congress allow remote voting immediately. In the absence of a functioning congress, the Executive branch has too much power. With members of both the House and Senate stricken, the need is urgent and logical. There are no technical issues that could not be overcome.. Secondly, Congress must put aside its constant game of position and opposition and recognize when they put things into bills that their opponents cannot live with, that they are hurting the American people. Of course as Libertarians wed prefer Congress stimulate the economy by removing regulations. Wed prefer Americans be given more money by telling them theres no income tax this year. And wed prefer the government completely get out of the process of handling ...
Juan & Pablo, Solidaridad (J/P): Solidarity, formerly called Solidarity, Libertarian Communist Federation, was born from a political process called Libertarian Communist Congress, which took place between the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2016. This process consisted of a regrouping of libertarian communist currents in Chile after a deep political crisis that we experienced between 2011 and 2013. It was an extremely rich period of experiences-a moment in which the working class carried out intense activity through different social movements, in student conflicts, socio-environmental conflicts, and, to a certain extent, trade unions.. Although in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, anarchism was the main political current within the working class in Chile and across much of the world, this influence was already lost by the 1930s, remaining a marginal current throughout half of the twentieth century, except for some exceptional moments such as the general strike of 1956. ...
With Bryans last post, I think he conceded that its not a principled argument that is being made. From a principled standpoint, I think all Libertarians would basically agree that open immigration is more libertarian. Whats being debated now is how should you determine when a Libertarian should/can adopt illiberal/statist positions on pragmatic grounds. Libertarians opposed to open immigration dont take that stand because they are anti-immigrant, they take that stand because they think it maximizes their ability to enjoy and protect what liberty remains in the U.S. for them and their friends and family. If we lived in a society where most people did not view govt as a weapon to be used to enforce their will on other people, this wouldnt be an issue. But since thats not the society we live in, the question is when is it ok for libertarians to take statist, illiberal positions to protect their own liberty. They didnt create the current political system, so while it would immoral to simply ...
Over the weekend, my good friend Pete Boettke wondered why it was necessary for us to call ourselves Bleeding Heart Libertarians when the whole history of classical liberalism (from Smith forward) is full of thinkers who clearly cared about, for example, the condition of the least well-off. My response was that yes, that might be true, but most observers of libertarianism dont know that, and too many true believers talk about libertarianism as if its all about self-interest to the exclusion of other values. In response, Pete gave me the same eyeroll hes been giving me for more than 25 years.. As if on cue, we get Jeff Sachs writing about libertarianism this weekend and saying:. Yet the error of libertarianism lies not in championing liberty, but in championing liberty to the exclusion of all other values. Libertarians hold that individual liberty should never be sacrificed in the pursuit of other values or causes. Compassion, justice, civic responsibility, honesty, decency, humility, ...
The rankings by a Virginia think tank are based on economic, social, and personal freedoms of Americans - and include taxes, government spending and regulations.
Q: Do you still believe that the financial industry needs no regulation because markets are inherently stable and always act rationally?. A: The free market is the most stable and fair system. Government intervention and manipulation of interest rates are at the heart of the whole mess we are currently in. Government intervention causes unintended negative consequences. Artificially low interest rates help out special interest and elites, not the common person, all the while creating malinvestment and booms and busts in our economy.. Q: Do you think people who relate more to the libertarian ideals of the Republican Party have a role to play in the Republican Party of the moment, and do you see a role for them in the coming (hopeful) rebuilding of the Republican Party? A: I certainly hope so. The Republican Party has traditionally been the party of liberty and limited government. Republicans like Robert Taft, Barry Goldwater, and Ronald Reagan had very libertarian qualities. If the G.O.P. gets ...
Some critics on the left enjoy faulting libertarians for believing that property is a bulwark against aggression. To the libertarian argument that violations of property -- including trespasses on land -- constitute aggression, these critics respond that property ownership itself is aggression because it limits the freedom of others.

In the 1980 presidential contest, the Libertarian Party gained ballot access in all 50 States, Washington, D.C., and Guam, the first time a third party accomplished this since the Socialist Party in 1916 (when there were only 48 States and the District of Columbia did not get to vote for president). The ticket of Ed Clark and David H. Koch spent several million dollars on this political campaign and earned more than one percent of the popular vote with almost one million votes. On December 29, 1981, the first widely reported successful election in the continental United States of a Libertarian Party candidate in a partisan race occurred as Richard P. Siano, a Boeing 707 pilot for Trans World Airlines, running against both a Republican and a Democrat, was elected to the office of Kingwood Township Committeeman in western Hunterdon County, New Jersey. His election resulted from the special election held on December 29, 1981 to break a tie vote in the general election between him and the Democratic ...
moving in peacefully to affect voting outcomes] Thats close enough to invasion for me. Suit yourself. The term sure has lost 99.999% of its bite since the days of the Mongol Hordes.... If you look at the link provided above, the goals are to do all sorts of libertarian things, all of which require a strong majority. Which is pretty much taking over, nest pas? Well I should explain. Certainly I agree that their goal is overt and it is to affect the body politic of some state by concentrating their votes so that their votes will be significant. Duh. A big reason I object to a characterization of this as taking over is because nobody can take over anything in the United States. We have limited government here. If the libertarians or anyone else really were taking over some state or part of a state, it would be cause to send in the troops, IMHO. Whatever libertarian things they intend to do, will by definition have to be things that are already within the power of NH state ...
However, in the context of becoming politically relevant and herding these cats, recent history - at least in terms of pragmatism - is not encouraging. We have succumbed to the modern cultural equivalent of Instant Gratification. Ron Paul for President . . . I could go for that personally, but from a pragmatic and realistic standpoint, it aint gonna happen! To get that bloc of 12-14 in the House (and a lesser number in the Senate) we need to identify those with truly libertarian views at the (House) district level and in perhaps one or two states, support them financially (think Koch brothers, Tea Party Express, etc.), and ELECT them. For the immediate future, these candidates would no doubt have to run as conservative Republicans (a la Ron Paul, and Rand in the KY Senate race), and when we achieve a handful in the House and Senate, they could remain a member of the Republican causcus, but also form a small L libertarian caucus (similar to the Black caucus in the Democrat party). In a ...

Since the argument presented by the libertarian conforms to the rules of logic, the listener will evaluate the validity of the argument based upon the degree to which the image of tax collector corresponds to the image of thief in the listeners mind. If the listeners mental images for thief and tax collector are too far apart, the listener may conclude that the libertarian is attempting to stretch the definition of the word theft beyond its appropriate boundaries, and as a consequence may reject the argument entirely.. This is more than a trivial issue regarding the effectiveness of libertarian outreach. Mental images can be much more influential than logical arguments in shaping and maintaining a societys character, laws, and customs. The history and political culture of the United States at present provide a case in point.. For many Americans in the revolutionary era, the exemplar of a person fully entitled to liberty was a white male, preferably a landowner and farmer. Native ...
First of all, the democrats have the Liberal and the Republican party has the Libertarian. The only difference between the democrat liberal and the Republican libertarian is the liberals want a huge communist welfare state and the libertarian wants a small business controlled government that doesnt provide anything to anyone except through business. The republican libertarians do side with their democrat counterparts on most, Social Issues like amnesty for illegal aliens and open borders, the free flow of drugs, etc......... The libertarians dont believe in welfare except if there is no welfare people will rise up and kill the libertarians and most of their illegal alien base is on welfare in some form or another. ...

I dont think you actually read what I said or didnt understand what i mean. The push and pull is what most people do in societies where the laws have some problems. By push and pull, i mean you go out and protest or write congressmen or support candidates that believe in what you believe in. This is democracies finest quality. And one misconception about the minority having protections is that it is the majorities will for them to have these protections. The reason the minority has protections is simply because the majority decided they should. At any point, the majority can take those rights away and there is, as far as anyone can tell, nothing the minority can readily do about it. I mean with all jokes and ideology aside, what could say, christians do if they became the minority and the US Congress amended the Constitution to say that all religious practice is banned completely. There the minority.... laws arent set-in-stone laws like say, the laws of physics. We CANT decide that protons ...
Nope. Arrogant up the fucking whazoo we are! Could you possibly be more pussy?!? Where do you think you are, Thailand?!? What is your major malfunction?

Where Maryland fails is the personal freedom dimension, where it is the second-worst-ranked state. Maryland boasts the seventh-strictest gun control laws in the country: carry permits are expensive and rarely issued; assault weapons, cheap handguns, and large-capacity magazines are banned; sales are banned unless by licensed dealers; and so on. Its marijuana laws are fairly harsh as well, except that the first offense of high-level possession is only a misdemeanor, and the state has an almost-useless medical marijuana exception. Marylands impositions on personal freedom also include extensive auto and road regulations, tight gambling laws, a ban on raw milk, a law allowing police to take DNA from certain felony arrestees, burdensome private and home school laws that require private school teachers to be licensed and effectively subject curricula to government approval, very high drug arrest rates (though incarceration and other victimless crimes arrest rates are low), lack of same-sex ...

In and around Liberty: Last week Liberty Wildlife hosted a group of students from the Midwestern University College of Veterinary Medicine who attended a class in necropsy. For those unfamiliar with the term, a necropsy is a surgical examination of a dead body, most commonly a dead animal, in order to learn why the animal died. Many of the animals that are treated at Liberty have this procedure done after they die, especially if the circumstances of the animals demise are either unknown or suspect in any way. These students got hands on training in this very essential skill in our large classroom facility.. We attended a Junior Citizen Science Festival last week, put on by the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy where several busloads of bright, eager youngsters were allowed to explore the desert north of Scottsdale. The kids went from station to station to view and experience the flora and fauna of the McDowell Mountains and the surrounding ecosystem. As always, Liberty Wildlifes birds were a big ...
West Liberty Foods, L.L.C. is a US meat processing company owned by the Iowa Turkey Growers Cooperative and formed in 1996 by a group of Iowa turkey growers, and now owns four meat processing plants. The company mainly produces products for customers to sell under their own brand names. As of 2006, West Liberty Foods was the 12th-largest turkey company in the United States. Each plant, located in the three Iowa towns of West Liberty, Mount Pleasant, and Sigourney, as well as Tremonton, Utah, focuses on specific aspects of the meat-packing process. The West Liberty plant participates in the entire process by slaughtering animals, further processing meats into products, and packaging finished products, and the Sigourney plant focuses on the further processing step only, and the Mount Pleasant plant only packages finished product. While West Liberty Foods has experienced growth and received industry recognition since its inception, it initially faced a difficult market for turkeys, and has ...

Before Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) electrified conservatives with his denunciation of liberal media bias at the GOP presidential debate last week, he took a little-noticed position on a major crime bill before the Senate that set him apart from the politically powerful Koch brothers. Taking the side of law-and-order conservatives on an issue that could emerge as a major focus of the 2016 presidential campaign, Cruz came out against the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act (S. 2123) on the grounds that the legislation, which will retroactively reduce the sentences of thousands of federal prison inmates, could lead to the release of violent criminals, some convicted of using weapons while engaged in other crimes. He said the Senate bill would release illegal aliens with criminal convictions when a major crime wave is already sweeping the nation.. In an extraordinary development, the Koch brothers decided to publicly go after Cruz. Echoing the views of the libertarian billionaires, whose network ...

For politically oriented libertarians, politics is the art of picking the most libertarian candidate who has a chance of winning. Bill Richardson has no chance of winning, and the other Democratic hopefuls offer nothing to supporters of limited government. On the Republican side, we can safely skip the Ron Paul debate -- he is not going to be the next president of the United States. John McCain sometimes blunders into support of limited government, but his usual reaction to his personal whim of the day is that government should do something about it. And, his honorable service to his country notwithstanding, his unstable personality and temper make him uniquely unqualified for the presidency. That leaves three electable candidates who can offer some legitimate claim to libertarian sympathies -- Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, and Fred Thompson. Romney is an easy choice. Governor Romneys tax policy should make a libertarians mouth water. It begins with the no-brainers -- make the Bush tax cuts ...
By Michael Hoexter. Corporatocracy/Plutocracy: The Neoliberal Compromise with Reality. While there are a certain number of true believers in the neoliberal ideal that tend to congregate around the banner of libertarianism or related concepts, a vast swath of the political class and ruling elite has been pulled to the right by neoliberalism without openly embracing its hidden utopia. These political and economic realists or pragmatists tend to see the true believers in neoliberal ideology as either an ideological fig-leaf that can provide a more appealing cover for the agenda of existing large private interests or, occasionally, as a fanatical embarrassment if they show too strong a belief in libertarian ideals. The notion of defunding public services and reducing public regulation of the private sector has a powerful appeal to many corporate and wealthy interests. So powerful is this appeal in fact that the label and concept of libertarianism, which is now adopted by the most ...
Kane asserts that the choice which is made by an agent must be probabilistically and, thereby, indeterministically caused by the reasons for making that choice,[29] where both the choice[30] and the reasons[31] for which it is made have corresponding neural connections or brain-wave patterns. But what do indeterministic, probabilistic causes explain about the making of a choice that is not teleologically accounted for by the reasons for making it?[32] Kane s view seems to be that causation involving an agent s reasons is required as a link to explain why the choice is the agent s doing rather than a mere happening .[33] Three responses are in order.. First, if Kane is claiming that causation is required to make the choice an action, he is simply mistaken. As I explained in setting forth my account of the nature of choice in the previous section, the view that a choice is intrinsically active is most plausible in light of both libertarian and epistemological considerations about action.. Second, ...
Wow. I know plenty of libertarians, and I simply havent heard any of them claim that its desirable to keep around uneducated people in society, basically to do everyone elses dirty work. Im not saying that no libertarian thinks that, but I just dont think that there is any reason to specifically mention libertarians as maintaining that belief. Most libertarians I know tend to be pretty pro-technology, and believe that innovation can replace many menial jobs, leaving more and more humans to innovate, and to do more creative work. Additionally, while the long-term goal is for immigrants and people in developing countries, to also have meaningful jobs, immigration and trade means that fewer and fewer people in developed countries must take on less intellectual jobs, allowing others, who previously had no jobs, to fulfill these roles (and hopefully be on the track for them or their children to one day have intellectually demanding jobs, as well). ...

No opera, no Mario-makes us sound a hundred years old. I have no plans for opera or Mario, so am not worried about that. Dont want your libertarian gang. That makes me laugh, since I am estranged from my libertarian gang and always berated them for being utterly useless when it came to phoning up my shows anyway.

The influence of the liberty of the press does not affect political opinions alone, but it extends to all the opinions of men, and it modifies customs as well as laws. In another part of this work I shall attempt to determinate the degree of influence which the liberty of the press has exercised upon civil society in the United States, and to point out the direction which it has given to the ideas, as well as the tone which it has imparted to the character and the feelings, of the Anglo-Americans, but at present I purpose simply to examine the effects produced by the liberty of the press in the political world.. I confess that I do not entertain that firm and complete attachment to the liberty of the press which things that are supremely good in their very nature are wont to excite in the mind; and I approve of it more from a recollection of the evils it prevents than from a consideration of the advantages it ensures.. If any one could point out an intermediate and yet a tenable position between ...
The importance of private property to political dissent was memorably demonstrated by an unexpected but significant source. In response to President George W. Bushs launching of the Iraq War, the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee issued a public statement entitled An Appeal to Conscience: In Support of Those Refusing to Pay for War on Iraq, which upheld a citizens right not to pay all or a portion of ones federal taxes as a form of conscientious objection. Among the signatories were many who proudly wore the label socialist, including . . . Noam Chomsky. Now here were outright collectivists defending the right of every individual to keep his money from the taxmen, for no reason other than to reflect his private conscience - that is, his personal disagreement with government policy, even when the government was enthroned by the Election Day majority-plurality.

Over the last few weeks Ive been doing a lot of thinking about psychedelics and moral enhancement. I met up with Jules Evans a few days ago to talk about psychedelic enquiry, while he was finishing off this piece on whether psychedelics make you a better person. I think his piece is excellent; it cuts through the romantic notions that usually surround the issue, and doesnt bother with the tentative preparation of the reader that many philosophers employ when raising it.. Thomas Douglas (2008) raises a Kantian objection to moral enhancement; that the moral goodness of our desired motives is wholly determined by the earlier motives for bringing them about. I think this is interesting and Id like to explore it. Lets say I would like to be a better person (I do). I would like to be more caring, friendlier, and more empathetic. Why? Maybe because I want to improve other peoples life experience. I feel that being that way in my interactions with others will help them to feel better about ...

OKLAHOMA CITY-- Next year, Oklahoman voters will go to the polls again and cast their vote in various elections, one of which will decide the next governor. One big difference voters might notice this time around: a Libertarian on the ballot. Last year, the Libertarian Party of Oklahoma (OKLP) gained official recognition and had a candidate on the ballot for President, as well as candidates for many local offices.
First of all, the Libertarian minimalist state, designed to protect fundamental rights of life, liberty and property, may not be all that minimalist. To the libertarians, the only legitimate function of government is to protect life, liberty and property -- which is to say, the only legitimate public institutions are the military, the police, and the courts. But the boundaries of even these functions are not clearly defined, nor do the full implications of these rights end where the libertarians might expect. Arguably, the maintenance of civic friendship and the well ordered society, promoted by such liberal contractarian theorists as John Rawls, falls under the libertarian criteria. For it may be the case that life, liberty and property, can be secured only if society is well-ordered, and civic friendship obtains; that is, when the critical mass of citizens recognize their common stake in a shared fate, when, in a word, they have a well-founded loyalty to their ...
Conservative talk radios fastest-growing superstar is also a New York Times bestselling phenomenon: the author of the groundbreaking critique of the Supreme Court, Men in Black, and the deeply personal dog lovers memoir Rescuing Sprite, Mark R. Levin now delivers the book that characterizes both his devotion to his more than 5 million listeners and his love of our country and the legacy of our Founding Fathers: Liberty and Tyranny is Mark R. Levins clarion call to conservative America, a new manifesto for the conservative movement for the 21st century. In the face of the modern liberal assault on Constitution-based values, an attack that has steadily snowballed since President Roosevelts New Deal of the 1930s and resulted in a federal government that is a massive, unaccountable conglomerate, the time for re-enforcing the intellectual and practical case for conservatism is now. Conservative beliefs in individual freedoms do in the end stand for liberty for all Americans, while liberal dictates lead
Aside from national defense, most limited-government libertarians say that the only legitimate function of government, in a free society, is the criminal justice system the police, courts, and prisons. To me, this system seems like one of the first ones we should scrap! Libertarians generally understand that the importance of a service does not mean it should be provided by the state. We often argue that specifically because such services as healthcare and education are so very important for the happiness and well-being of individuals, we must do all we can to prevent government from intervening in these areas in ways it hasnt yet, and to remove government where it has already made a mess. Although all libertarians seem to understand these reasons for keeping healthcare and education in the private sector, many seem to believe that protecting rights to life, liberty, and property is so important so very important that it must be the governments sole function. When asked why we should ...

In terms of an issue where an imbalance of benefit compared to consequences exists, Libertarianism cannot offer a solution that will respect individual liberties; no ideal of governance can. All that can be offered is to restrict the liberties of those who most benefit from the imbalance--which, incidentally, also restricts the potential liberties of those who suffer from the imbalance by removing any possibility that they could someday become members of the elite who benefit from it--in order to protect the welfare of the larger population. If a government is not willing to thus restrict the liberties of the elite and the potential liberties of all, or if those governed are not willing to forego their liberties for the greater welfare, then there is no effective solution that can be offered at that time. The issue will have to wait until the consequences of allowing the elite to enjoy their effective privilege come to bear enough upon the elite that they become willing to change their stance, ...

The meeting seemed to confirm that the LPs platform wars were ended by the 2008 Denver Accord. That unofficial agreement transformed the Platform from 2004s detailed 14,000-word recipe for abolishing government to a 2500-word declaration of Libertarian policy principles that neither mandates nor precludes the complete replacement of government with markets. There was in Vegas no effort to revert to a radically detailed abolitionist platform, nor did the PlatCom recommend adding any new language asserting a proper role for government.. Another sign of platform peace was in the roll-call voting. Brian Holtz was the editor of the 2008 Platform draft that was chosen in Denver over the detailed radical platform offered by Rob Power, and both Californians are back on the 2010 PlatCom. In Vegas they voted the same way on 22 out of the 25 platform roll-calls for which both were present. On one of their three disagreements, Holtz in fact cast the lone radical vote (against language to phase out ...
But first, you need to understand what I mean about right-to-try. Basically, right-to-try laws rest on the false premise that the FDA is so slow and so bureaucratic that cures are being kept from terminally ill patients, or at least drugs that might hugely extend their life expectancies. The situation is presented as so dire that right-to-try is necessary, which basically allows terminally ill patients to bypass the FDA and receive experimental therapeutics from companies developing them without having to go through the FDAs Expanded Access program (which basically does the same thing, providing access to experimental therapeutics before they are FDA-approved). Its an idea promoted by a Libertarian think tank, the Goldwater Institute, and the branding has been very successful, to the point where, politically, opposing right-to-try is viewed as the equivalent of taking the terminally ills last chance away from them, wanting them to die horribly, all while pissing on an apple pie and burning ...
First of all this left right bullcrap has to go! Obama is not a left leaning anything! Obama is a corporate capitalist as is proven by the bankster bailout.

The War in Iraq ended, or the War on Terror (another republican hijack) or diplomacy reaching out in Afganistan. I see more drones killing innocents.

The libertarians are playing both sides of the coin so to speak and have been getting away with it for decades ruining the lives of all U.S. Citizens in both political parties.
Ive been political my entire life, starting out with Barry Goldwater and The Conscience of a Conservative in the1960s. In 1967 I enlisted in the U.S. Marines for four years, spending nearly two of them in South Vietnam. In 1972 I was a Florida presidential elector for Prof. John Hospers, the first Presidential candidate of the national Libertarian Party which was founded that same year. During the late 1970s and into the 1980s I was a contributing editor and monthly columnist for Reason magazine, and Ive authored numerous articles in the print and online media about various subjects relating to individual rights and personal freedom. Today Im a lawyer by profession; I divide my time between New Hampshire and Florida all year long, spending much of my time practicing law in Florida. As an early supporter and past member of the board of directors of the Free State Project, I was drawn to the Live Free or Die state of New Hampshire in late 2003 when it was chosen by a vote of the first 5,000 ...

Scott Garrett of Lynchburg in an event coordinated by Libertys School of Health Sciences.. Charged by Gov. Bob McDonnell to prepare Virginia for health system reform, mandated by President Barack Obamas controversial Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Hazel expressed his personal view. My own personal belief, and let me add the disclaimer you see on TV, The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the management, I think that individuals should be responsible for purchasing their own health insurance. I think that to the extent that taxpayers are supporting coverage, they should support individuals and not employers.. Referencing Libertys College of Osteopathic Medicine, Hazel congratulated the school in launching the new program designed to train and prepare students to meet the nations future health ...

Taking the title of his book from Isaiah Berlins famous essay distinguishing a negative concept of liberty connoting lack of interference by others from a positive concept involving participation in the political realm, Samuel Fleischacker explores a third definition of liberty that lies between the first two. In Fleischackers view, Kant and Adam Smith think of liberty as a matter of acting on our capacity for judgment, thereby differing both from those who tie it to the satisfaction of our desires and those who translate it as action in accordance with reason or will. Integrating the thought of Kant and Smith, and developing his own stand through readings of the Critique of Judgment and The Wealth of Nations, Fleischacker shows how different acting on ones best judgment is from acting on ones desires--how, in particular, good judgment, as opposed to mere desire, can flourish only in favorable social and political conditions. At the same time, exercising judgment is something every ...
But abortion, or even pro-life ideology, cant be taken as a single issue. These things are embedded in a much larger, more complicated social fabric. So a libertarian, a pagan, a vegan, a Catholic, or a Protestant might find abortion unacceptable, but none of them can agree on the greater social context in which that unacceptability is nested, so we dont have a common context in which abortion is universally understood as unacceptable.. In other words, the libertarian might argue that libertarianism does not accept abortion, the vegan might argue that veganism does not accept abortion, the Catholic might argue that Catholicism does not accept abortion, but at the same time there are plenty of libertarians, vegans, Catholics and others who do find abortion acceptable, because the overall cultural context in which those various points of view are competing does not actually include the tenet that abortion is unacceptable. I.e., while diverse people oppose abortion, their opposition does not ...

The answer may lie with our view of freedom. Many parents of Anorexia Nervosa sufferers are highly educated, and some hold high positions in big corporations and even in Health Authorities. Many are professionals. Many have a great respect for individual freedom and self-determination and unfortunately they get caught in a bind of not being able to be authoritarian as far as their own children are concerned. It is not difficult to see why many parents of Anorexia Nervosa sufferers are not prepared to give up being a modern parent, and until they do, we psychiatrists will have to soldier on with the difficult task of treating what need not necessarily be an illness, let alone a mental one. ...
Background Almost 16 million surgeries are performed in German hospitals each year. About 40% of those are performed in patients over 70 years of age. With increasing age, a patients functional reserve usually decreases and some patients develop frailty syndrome.

CONTACT: Daniel Schuman, policy director, [email protected], 240-237-3930. Washington, D.C.-Today a coalition of 43 civil liberties, civil rights, and transparency organizations, coordinated by Demand Progress Action, delivered a letter to House Judiciary Committee members urging them to vote for the Shut the Backdoor amendment, offered by Reps. Ted Poe (R-TX) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), to help close the backdoor search loophole when the House Judiciary Committee holds a markup of the USA Liberty Act on Wednesday.. The USA Liberty Act reauthorizes Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act, which allows collection of foreign intelligence information but sweeps in U.S. person communications. The government uses the loophole to search its massive databases-without first obtaining a court-issued warrant based on probable cause-for information about U.S. persons and persons inside the United States. These powers are dangerous in the hands of any president, but most especially in the hands of President ...
Attorneys Dell & Schaefer win a long-term disability appeal on behalf of a psychologist whose disability benefits were denied by Liberty Mutual. Our clients benefits were re-instated and she will now receive several hundred thousands of dollars throughout her lifetime.. Our client was a successful psychologist who became disabled from her occupation as a result of a diagnosis of hepatitis C in 2007. Treatment for her condition lasted from April 2007 to March 2008 and included the administering of a powerful combination of Interferon, Ribavirin and an experimental Protease Inhibitor. During treatment she began to notice increased cognitive difficulties associated with the medication used in her treatment, and began to suffer from depression as a result of her inability to work. While undergoing treatment it was clear to Liberty Mutual that she was unable to perform the material and substantial duties of her occupation, and benefits were initially approved in 2007. Liberty Mutual continued to ...
The Ohio Nursing Home Attorneys at the Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC are accepting cases against the Liberty Nursing Center of Toledo. As reported by the Toledo Blade, in the most recent of many incidents at this Ohio nursing home facility, a schizophrenic male resident with sexually aggressive behaviors entered the room of a partially paralyzed female patient. Nurses on duty found him lying on top of the woman with his pants removed and her incontinence brief pushed aside.. The Liberty Nursing Center has been the center of several prior disturbing incidents, including an incident where it failed to respond to allegations of sexual abuse, another where a resident was found wandering miles away from the facility, and yet another where a resident jumped from an upper-story window. It has even been reported that two residents escaped in 2009 and used cocaine and marijuana during their absence.
