No Government, No Force

Month: August 2016

Arizona Libertarian Platform

Having been a registered and somewhat active Libertarian for over 40 years now, that has been increasingly disappointing. Gary Johnson sounded better 4 years ago, but garnered only 1% of the vote. Today he’s polling much better, but has obviously lost his way, leaving us with nobody worth voting for… that’s right, NOBODY!

There was a time when the LP was based on Principle, but those days are long gone. Today’s Libertarians are scattered all over the philosophical map. Very recently I read the Arizona’s Libertarian Platform, https://www.azlp.org/platform.php — reading that was a SHOCK! Nothing within that suggests that Mises and Rothbard might survive. That platform seems both obsolete and awful,.

All that leaves me feeling both “homeless” and hopeless. The problems, which run throughout this platform is that, rather than addressing the problem by using the Libertarian ways of free enterprise and free markets, a myriad of solutions are proposed, almost always having GOVERNment do things in different ways, which always demand more “laws” and “better” punishment.

The Obamacare death spiral is on

Posted on Personal Liberty August 12, 2016 by Bob Livingston

The Obamacare deathcare system is dying and it may be completely dead before the next president is sworn into office.

As The Hill reported Thursday, two major insurers in the last month – Aetna and Anthem – both reversed course on their plans to expand in the marketplace. The five largest insurers say they are losing money on Obamacare. Several other high-profile insurers are raising concerns about the mix of consumers (not enough young, healthy people and too many old and sick people are signing up) and whether they can continue selling Obamacare plans.
