NH Libertarians Officially Recognized as Party For First time in 20 Years + “Free Staters” Win 15+ State Rep Races

NH State HouseLibertarians Had Major Successes in NH 2016 Elections

The national election is just a sideshow. Nothing of substance in DC will change in the next four years and I predict Trump will ultimately disappoint those who think he’s somehow an “outsider” or “anti-establishment”. Meanwhile, the left is MAD and secession will grow into a serious idea for many of them as they begin to see the value in breaking away from the United States. Indeed, Californians already held a #CalExit rally on the Sacramento statehouse grounds today!

I am pleased to have been part in this epic victory. 

Maybe New Hampshire can lead the way to a “new” Libertarian Party as the “Party of Principle” and the “Party of Peace”?

LIBERTARIAN: Libertarian Party Rejects Principle, Nominates Republicans

Libertarian Party Rejects Principle, Nominates Republicans (Except NH & VT)
by Ian | May 29, 2016 | Libertarian, National, New Hampshire, Politics, Republicans

*** begin quote ***

The national LP is hopeless, yet activists across the country toil away trying to wrest control of the organization from the hands of the republicans who have had control of the party for about a decade. To those remaining principled libertarians I implore you:

GIVE UP ON THE LP!

Your party is dead and has been for years. Your efforts are being wasted on the national and even your state LP. Start planning your move to New Hampshire to get involved with the only proven successful strategy in the liberty movement: concentrating activists in one geographic area.

In New Hampshire we’ve had more political successes in a decade – meaning people being elected who are principled libertarians – than the LP has had in forty years. If you want to keep losing, stay where you are. If you want to see liberty advance, you have to get together with like-minded people and get active here in the Shire.

*** end quote *** 

Such a shame.

While Austin Peterson wasn’t perfect — who is? —  the Gary Johnson / Bill Weld is a joke.

LIBERTARIAN: Shave a child’s head?

Sunday, October 26, 2014

https://www.quora.com/If-my-3-year-old-asks-me-to-shave-her-head-as-a-libertarian-why-shouldnt-I-comply-with-her-request

If my 3-year-old asks me to shave her head, as a libertarian, why shouldn’t I comply with her request?

*** begin quote ***

Libertarians don’t preface every conversation about individual freedom with a disclaimer that we’re only talking about rules for adults, but it is usually implied.

*** end quote ***

Plus, Libertarians are not a uniform homgenous group. It’s like a clowder of cats.

Parents have a self-assumed obligation to this person.

As such, they are compelled to act in the child’s best interest.

I would ask, “why shouldn’t you comply”?

It won’t kill her. And it may well be a “learning experience for all involved?

Penn Jillette on Government Social Welfare
Posted by David Kramer on September 2, 2012 09:18 PM

Libertarian Penn Jillette (Penn and Teller) expresses his contempt for government social welfare in this very clear and concise statement:

*** begin quote ***

“It’s amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness.”

If you….you might be a libertarian

*** begin quote ***

* If you can wear down someone in an 4 hour debate about rights… you might be a libertarian.

* If your friends won’t discuss politics in front of you cause they know you will hand them their ass… you might be a libertarian.

ROFL! I bet folks think of me like this?

POLITICAL: Who is a libertarian?

*** begin quote ***

Who is a libertarian?

Zero Aggression Principle (“Zap”)

“Zero Aggression Principle”:

A libertarian is a person who believes that no one has the right, under any circumstances, to initiate force against another human being for any reason whatever; nor will a libertarian advocate the initiation of force, or delegate it to anyone else.

Those who act consistently with this principle are libertarians, whether they realize it or not. Those who fail to act consistently with it are not libertarians, regardless of what they may claim.

— L. Neil Smith

Formerly called the “Non-Aggression Principle”, or “NAP”

POLITICAL: It’s the “effete”; not the “elite”

Reclaiming language on the right
Harry Beadle

*** begin quote ***

At any rate, I would argue there are many other words which better describe the true nature of our liberal friends. One I would propose is “effete.” The same online American Heritage Dictionary defines the word this way: “marked by self-indulgence, triviality or decadence; as in an effete group of self-professed intellectuals.” I am sure you see the relevance. Another definition from the same online source is: “unable to produce, sterile.” Liberals surely do not produce original ideas; as for sterility, we can but hope.

*** end quote ***

I agree.

From hence forth and forever more, I will refer to the Progressive ex-Liberal self-annointed Socialist “elite” as “The Effete”.

It fits them so much better.
