Welcome to Issue 419 of The Libertarian Enterprise! I thought
this was going to be our "Marmoreal Day" edition, and wondered what
marble has to do with anything. I mean, I like marble just fine, when
I'm rich I'll build a house with marble floors and walls and so on,
but then I saw the newspaper, and discovered what I was hearing as
"marmoreal" was "memorial"I'm from Texas and I guess I just
hear with an accent or something.

Gun Control = The Final Solution = Back to the Bronze Age
by Andrew G. Eggleston Sr.
I am so tired of hearing that there need to be stricter
gun control laws, that the "hug-a-thug" Democrats actually believe that an
evil person can be stopped with still another flimsy piece of paper, and
that we will all be safer for it.
Giuliani Is Delusional
by Jonathan David Morris
I like how people think Rudy Giuliani won the second
Republican presidential debate. I guess that depends on your definition
of "won." To me, he only won it if the idea was to look like a fool.
Why Is Democracy Such A Bad Thing?
by Doug Newman
I got an e-mail the other day from someone forming a
grassroots lobbying organization. I told him that, while I agreed with
the aims of his organization, he was wrong in asserting that "the right

NONE OF THE ABOVE Always Gets My Support
by Jim Davidson
People persist in asking me for whom should they vote.
I strongly believe that if you are voting for any incumbent, you are making
a grave error, which is likely to be deadly to many, disastrous to private
property, and beneficial only to graft and corruption. In the case of nearly
every challenger I've ever scrutinized closely, the same is true. There are
a few exceptions, but they are indeed rare.
