New Libertarian Presidential Candidate has Ten-Minute MSNBC Interview about Why He is Running, Says Nothing Libertarian


After Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI) established a committee this week to enable him to run for the Libertarian Party presidential nomination, he was interviewed for ten minutes at MSNBC regarding his candidacy. Did Amash use this time to advocate for accomplishing libertarian goals — terminating the drug war, ceasing foreign intervention, and ending the Federal Reserve, for example? No.

The New Rules of Golf in the USAR (Union of Soviet American Republics)


The little Stalinist Mayor of Palm Beach County, FL , Dave Kerner, just issued another one of his unconstitutional and unlawful “emergency orders.” This time it was to begin opening up recreational activities in the county. Before making his announcement he told us that we are not to behave like elementary school children on the last day of school before summer vacation, indicating that he does indeed think of us all as eight-year-olds (at best). He also stated that if we did behave that way, we “WILL be subject to arrest.” Jackbooted Sheriff Rick Bradshaw stood behind him with his usual phony scowl.

Cato Institute Editorial: The Coronavirus Crackdown is Libertarian


When you come across an editorial titled “Libertarianism and the Coronavirus Pandemic” at the website of the Cato institute that describes itself as “a public policy research organization — a think tank — dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace,” what do you expect? You may expect the editorial to argue against local, state, and national governments in America, in the name of countering coronavirus, prohibiting people from exercising many induvial rights including rights to travel, assemble, engage in commerce, and even just leave home.

My Coronavirus Crackdown Predictions


A while back, I made two predictions regarding the coronavirus crackdown in America. First, in an April 11 Ron Paul Institute (RPI) article, I predicted that across the country there would be a proliferation of protests with a growing number of supporters. Second, in RPI articles published on March 25 and April 4, I predicted that continuing the coronavirus crackdown would increasingly involve physical violence by police enforcing draconian mandates and by people confronted by police for just trying to get on with their lives — something in many ways forbidden under the crackdown.

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman Wants Her City to Reopen Now


If many more politicians viewed the coronavirus crackdown the way Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman has viewed it, America may have avoided plummeting into economic devastation with tens of millions of people losing their jobs and with many small businesses closed down never to reopen due to the financial hit taken by their owners.

Coronavirus Over-Reaction


Throughout my 30 years in Congress, I noticed that very few of the Democrats in the House had ever run or even worked in a small or medium-sized business.

In fact, while I got along with them personally, I found that some Democratic members and career bureaucrats seemed to have an anti-business attitude.

Ron Paul: People ‘Should Be Leery About’ a Coronavirus Vaccine


Ron Paul, in a Monday interview with host Dan Dicks at Press for Truth, warns that people “should be leery about” coronavirus vaccines that may come out. Further, says Paul, a doctor and former United States House of Representatives member, “right now I wouldn’t think there is any indication for anybody to take them,” noting that “scare tactics” are being used to pressure people into thinking they should take such potential vaccines to protect against coronavirus.

John Wiley Price’s Lone Opposition to the Coronavirus Crackdown


Some people will be heralding Texas Governor Greg Abbot for his announcement today that he will be taking yet-to-be explained steps to allow the reopening sometime of some businesses closed in the state’s coronavirus crackdown. Easing up on the restrictions is a positive for liberty. But, if you are looking for someone to admire for taking on the coronavirus crackdown in Texas, I suggest Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price fits the bill much better.
