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.

Don’t Confuse the Declaration of Independence with the Constitution

by Ryan McMaken at Mises.org
Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call “the Constitution” and the Declaration of independence are not pretty much the same thing or “connected in spirit,” or “two sides of the same coin.” The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.

We is edjumicated!!!!

Fay Dickson: “I am against the movement commonly known as CommonCore for many reasons ; my main concern is that education has gone by the wayside and has been replaced with lib/prog propaganda instead of real knowledge. the following links bring to light the lack of real education today . I call this piece We is edjumicated!!!! At this publication, all links were viable. I will leave it to you to choose your reading source, and to decide if anything that accepts that 2 + 2 = 5. or that our history must be changed from fact to political correctness belongs in our educational system.”

Central Governments are Not Sustainable

Jack Perry: “I suppose we’ve all overdosed on hearing “Freedom isn’t free!” for the past few days. Your humble scribe is pleased to report that freedom actually is free. It’s government that isn’t free. Yes, there is a difference. Even the founding documents of this nation agree that freedom isn’t bestowed upon us by the government via human sacrifice in some orgy of blood and violence, but from God. My Bible does not say that God received a purchase order from the United States government that sets them up as a vendor to sell freedom to us….”

Going Voluntary – Sovereignty

This should perhaps have been the first in this series, but too late now! We will be turning this from theory to reality. “Home” for us is Apache County, Arizona, one of the poorest and least populated counties in the USA, located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of over 6,000 feet. Our community is unincorporated, being in a rather remote location with a few thousand people scattered an area of perhaps 600 square miles. In talking with the people here, NOBODY wants this area to become part of some incorporated town (which would mean a GOVERNment)! Thus we seek to build a better community within a Voluntary system, in which all are Sovereign Individuals, in which each can fulfill his perceived needs and goals in concert with others who share those same. Neither GOVERNment nor Rulers are necessary to accomplish such goals; this is OUR Path to True Liberty!

Not a Dime’s Worth of Difference

Judge Andrew Napolitano: What if none of the candidates recognizes that government is an artificial creation based on force and ought to be exercised minimally? What if none of them understands that prosperity comes from the free choices of investors, workers, and consumers, and not from the decisions of the federal government’s central planners?

Mises: The Last Knight of Liberalism

We bring this to No-Ruler, first because it’s a most interesting read, telling in clear, concise language more about Ludwig von Mises that I’ve ever seen on a single, and

finally because there are some easy prices on the several books and downloadable offerings.

economic-crisis-goes-mainstream-what-happens-next

Last year, when alternative economic analysts were warning that the commodities downturn and oil crash just after the taper of QE3 were blaring signals for a downshift in all other financial indicators, the general response in the mainstream was that we were overreacting and paranoid and that the commodities jolt was temporary. Perhaps the fact needs repeating that it’s not paranoia if they are really out to get you.

(Who can really know about that?)
