If I Ran The Circus
by L. Neil Smith
(With apologies to Dr. Seuss)
For quite some time now -- several years, in fact -- people have been
asking me if I intend to run for President (of the United States, that
is), and if so, as a Libertarian Party nominee or an independent candidate.
by Bob Wallace
The year: 2084. The place: any city in the USA.
Characters: Father, Daughter, Baby, Fido and a Few Shadowy Characters.
Libertarians Support Al Sharpton For President
by Doug Heard
Based on the theory that things must get worse before they get better,
all libertarians should support the candidacy of Al Sharpton. He
couldn't be any worse than the other candidates from communist party A,
and he is a lot more up front about it than the rest. He won't do any
more harm to freedom than Kerry, Edwards, or Daschle. He won't do any
more harm to freedom than Bush or any other candidate communist party B might run.
Defending A Free Society
by William Stone, III
My essay entitled "Endgame" generated the most e-mail
I've ever received on a single topic.
I expected this, since I take the position that the United States'
Middle Eastern problems are self-inflicted and would evaporate if the
FedGov practiced a Constitutional foreign policy.
Dis-Mything 9-11: The Last Maginot Line
by L. Reichard White
As a result of past history, France didn't trust Germany. With images of
WWI trench warfare dancing in their heads, the French built the biggest
baddest barrier of walls, forts, and bunkers the world had ever seen on
their border with Germany. They called it the "Maginot Line."
Elder Abuse Demands Family Solutions
by Wendy McElroy
As people live longer and require more assistance in old age, the
problem of elder abuse is likely to intensify. According to the Census
Bureau, 35 million people in the United States were aged 65 and older in
2000. By 2030, the Bureau expects that figure to double. The expanding
senior population seems to be accompanied by a rise in elder abuse.
