Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Measure 90 in Oregon is on the ballot, which will create a top 2 open primary system where voters pick between all candidates running for an office and the top 2 candidates, regardless of the parties the candidates are or the percentage the winning candidate receives.

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

I published a piece for the R Street Institute Friday on how the NSA’s internet spying program is not just harmful to civil liberties, but also harmful to the economy as well. The reason why, companies around the world have lost faith in the security of their data and software from American companies. Last week, U.S. Sen. Ron […]

John McCain vs John McCain: Ebola Czar Edition

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

In 2008, even though the presidency of Barack Obama has been a disaster, the American people picked the lesser of the two evils. It is truly terrifying that John McCain won the presidential nomination of a major political party. At first, Senator McCain was opposed to using “czars” in government as this tweet obtained by […]

Congrats Matt Kibbe, You Are The Lamest Campaign Fundraiser Of 2014

Friday, October 17th, 2014

I just received a fundraising e-mail from FreedomWorks, the “conservatarian” activist group based in Washington D.C. The e-mail was a follow up to another fundraising e-mail that warned about Nancy Pelosi becoming Speaker of the House again. However, that scenario is becoming more far-feteched and if anything, another Republican wave is becoming more likely this […]

How ‘Affirmative Consent’ Laws Threaten Due Process

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

A few weeks ago, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the nation’s first “affirmative consent” law. When it was proposed back in June, I said the proponents were control freaks. The law essentially says that consent must be given, affirmatively and actively, for each act of a sexual encounter. In other words “yes means […]

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014

Many conservative Republicans like to blame libertarians for why the GOP has lost the past three out of four national elections.

Some Libertarians Need Social Skills

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Originally posted at United Liberty Twitter and the Internet in general have gone insane once Rand Paul endorsed Mitt Romney a day after his dad, Ron Paul, conceded the Presidential race. All of a sudden, Rand Paul became a sellout, a traitor, a neo-con, etc. The same Rand Paul whose Senate record has nearly been […]

Repost: Where Did The Anti-War Movement Go?

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

I wrote this originally on April 20, 2009 about Obama’s escalation of the war in Afghanistan. Now with Obama’s undeclared war in Libya beginning, I feel this is timely so I’m reposting it. In the American Conservative, Antiwar.com editor Justin Raitmando (whom I often disagree with) has a piece detailing some more leftist hypocrisy concerning […]

Obama’s April Fools Joke

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Yesterday, President Obama announced a new plan that supposedly announced new drilling off the nation’s East Coast, Alaskan Coast, and Gulf of Mexico.

However, once you look at Obama’s actual proposal the […]
