We are the future."

Of The Dead Speak Nothing But Truth
by L. Neil Smith
If you're a libertarian and are unaware, by now, that the world's premiere free market economist, Milton Friedman, died last week, it must be because you live in a cave or use the same Internet service I do.

A Plea to Fellow Libertarians—Forget Party Politics!
by Christopher Awuku
I've only been a libertarian for four years. The libertarian movement has been in existence for a number of decades. In that period, we have pursued party politics as one primary means of spreading libertarian values and bringing forth a libertarian society. I feel that, as libertarians, we should attempt to create other avenues and strategies of implementing our beliefs. In short, party politics doesn't seem to be working. If I am being honest, I don't believe this approach will work within the foreseeable future.

Getting What We Deserve
by Lady Liberty
I don't know that there was anybody who knew much of anything about politics who didn't expect Republicans to get spanked on November 7. But as much as I expected the backlash generated by unpopular policies and broken promises, even I was taken aback at the extent of that backlash. The Democrats now control both the House and the Senate, and George W. Bush's remaining years in his "lame duck" presidency are likely all but crippled.

Taking From Peter to Pay Paul
by Chris Claypoole
I was at a high school ceremony, at which my daughter and several dozen other students were honored, one evening this past week. One of the student speakers touched briefly on the ideal of leadership, and asserted that leadership was necessary, for many people would be lost and rudderless without some guiding hand.

On Campaign Ads
by Jonathan David Morris
I like how there are people in this country who run for office without having any idea why they want to win.

Back to Basics
by L. Neil Smith
The members of the New Mexico Libertarian Party have been kind enough to ask me back to address their annual convention again next spring. The dates are April 13-15, 2007, and you should consider showing up. If enough new people attend, I promise not to bring my guitar.
