Down With Power!
Down With Power!





Yes, the principles enumerated in L. Neil Smith's Down With Power, properly applied, will make a visible difference in America's condition in just 180 days!

While we wait months and years for the swift recovery that's in America's power, the con-game—played against us by government, corporations, and unions—goes on.

Stop the con-game. Read L. Neil Smith's Down With Power, available from,, and other sources, in trade paperback and e-book editions.

Cheaper Than Dirt! received so many online orders for fireams they had to suspend sales for a while in order to deal with them. They will resume sales on a limited basis as the are able to restock. Sounds to me like somebody (We The People?) are suspicious of someone or other (The "Authorities"?).


Please give this event a prominent appearance in every issue of The Libertarian Enterprise until the event. This could easily turn into a new (and more pointed) incarnation of the Tea Parties:


Those to whim I've blind-copied this, please spread the word as far and wide as you can, as well. We may very well be looking at history being made, which poor little kids will have to learn all about in (hopefully private) schools for the next 200 years.

Thanks very much,

L. Neil Smith

What more can I say?

Well, this:

A fellow named Dave Hodges has put up this web page telling what happened to a woman in Colorado who tried to inform her community on the UN's Agenda21 insanity:


Now this is horrifying. Try to tell the truth and have your friendly local government officials steal your child. Read all about it, and then spread the news far and wide. If you can—I know there is now so much bad news that the mind begins to close down. It is sort-of a background noise that we want to stop paying attention to.

Angry White Male
by L. Neil Smith
We are living in a bizarre historical period—the "Crazy Years", Robert Heinlein called them—when those who imagine themselves to be in some kind of authority or another, also imagine that they can tell us what emotions are appropriate to any particular circumstance or occasion.

Breach of Trust and Bill of Rights Enforcement
by Terence James Mason
A couple of years ago, I started working in earnest on a novel about how everything would eventually be made "all right," though we would go through hell as a country first. I've been playing with this plot ever since my graduate school days, and while nobody in the novel falls through a "probability breech," my own trip through one weighed heavily on that early planning.

There's an FBI in my soup
by MamaLiberty
I had a nightmare the other day, and in trying to describe it to someone, this short story came to be. It's not prophesy, and it's not history... yet.

How MSN warps and twists the news to fit an agenda.
by Neale Osborn
I'm pissed. I read this headline today on MSN, and I thought "The poor lady must have been chasing a drunk in the wrong house, winging rounds all over the place, for THAT headline!" Trigger-happy Atlanta mom shoots intruder in the face 5 times

An Open Letter to NRA and GOA
by James Woosley
I have submitted this text to these two organization via their web forms and intend to submit to my Congressman, Senators, the White House web site, and my State government as well.

I Don't Live in America Anymore
by Janet Oliver
I don't lose sleep, not because of Obama, anyway, but I am slowly going insane. I have made up my mind that I don't live in America anymore. In my mind, I live in a state of bliss that was mine when I was a child on my grandparents' farm in South Carolina. I had the freedom to roam the pastures, to play in the barn, to go fishing at the pond and sit under the shade of the willow tree, to eat my grandmother's biscuits and country ham for breakfast, to sit with my grandfather and peel peaches, shuck corn, or snap beans. I also had a horse. I would sneak out of the house and put a rope from a bale of hay around her neck and ride her out in the fields. I always got in trouble for this (I was only about 6 years old) but the scoldings I received were nothing compared to the sheer joy of being alive and free to explore that world.

Does The Left Have An Agenda? Oh Yeah, You Betcha!
by C. Jeffery Small
Throughout my life I have listened to the musings of people speculating on the actual intentions of those who align themselves with the philosophy of the progressive left. Many good-hearted people who always search to find only the best in others would look at the disastrous results being achieved by various wealth redistribution schemes, corporate bailouts, regulatory boondoggles, failed educational initiatives and programs based upon moral relativism, egalitarianism and altruism, and offer one excuse after another in an attempt to justify that, in spite of all the harmful consequences, the aim of these people was nevertheless still noble and well-meant. But was it?

Do it Better than Superman on Citizenship
by Wendy McElroy
How do you know when the content of a nation's character is bankrupt? One way is to examine the dynamic symbols that embody its character and which shift in reaction to circumstance. These symbols are often found within literature and other cultural expressions.
