Hey, It Could Happen
by Scott Bieser
The good news from the Libertarian Party National Convention in Denver this past weekend was, Big Head Press sold a big pile of books. Also, my friend L. Neil Smith got to meet up with a dozen or so friends he hasn't seen in years, and I got to hang with some great people who had been "Internet friends" till now, and meet many interesting new friends.

Fun in Denver
by Jim Davidson
Not being a glutton for punishment, I arrived in Denver on Saturday evening 24 May 2008. So, many of the preliminaries, including the platform wrangle and the debate among the candidates, had already taken place by the time I arrived. Nevertheless, I had a great time at the Libertarian Party's national convention, as well as the Boston Tea Party's informal convention.

Flirting with the Dark Side
by A.X. Perez
Ever feel fed up with folks who go around saying there are two kinds of people? Don't blame you, if for no other reason than that they're wrong. There's actually four kinds of people.

America Has No Duty to Destroy Islam
by Doug Newman
A few months ago, an old friend with whom I grew up somewhere in the swamps of Jersey sent me an e-mail that went something like this: A guy walked into a bar and saw GW Bush. He asked, "Mr. President, what are you doing?" Bush responded, "I am planning World War III. I am going to kill 140 million Muslims and a hot babe in a bikini." The man asked, "Why would you kill a hot babe in a bikini?" Bush responded, "See? I told you! No one gives a rip about 140 million dead Muslims!"

On Swapping and other Blood Rites
by Robert Jackman
I was going to write a lengthy piece on why Barr is not qualified to run for President, for the benefit of those Libertarians who had overdosed themselves with True Faith, Hope and donned blinders so as to avoid any measure of Discernment during the recent Convention to install a Standard Bearer for Liberty.

Can there be a better time to STOP VOTING?
by Dennis Wilson
The Libertarian Party, a political organization, was started by and for libertarians. Since the Denver convention on Memorial weekend, 2008, it should now be painfully obvious that the political Party—created by and for libertarians—cannot be maintained and sustained by libertarians. What better proof could any libertarian need to convince himself or herself of the futility of solving problems by political means such as voting?
