Libertarian calendar for February 2016

February 13
Dallas, TX

Libertarian Party meetup
6:00 pm

Ed Paul Wuensch, Retired Psychotherapist, will discuss how the system of checks and balances and separation of powers in the U.S. Constitution effectively guarantees paralysis. He will show that whether a candidate of the right or the left is elected president this year, the chances of getting his or her agenda passed are slim. Instead, the likely result will be the gridlock we have come to know and suffer with. It is a system designed to inhibit change.

If you’re not familiar with it yet, her story is now immortalized in her recently-released autobiography In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom. We’re more than ecstatic that she’ll be joining us for ISFLC16.
For just four more days, you can register to take part in what’s shaping up to be the best ISFLC yet for only $25. Prices will increase after October 31st to $35 for non-students (and will increase by $10 for each month after), so make sure to register before then to take advantage of the early-bird rates!

As vote nears, a more radical Trump emerges

Byron York: As vote nears, a more radical Trump emerges: PLYMOUTH, N.H. — The loudspeakers blasted the Beatles' Revolution when Donald Trump took the stage at Plymouth State University on the Sunday before the New Hampshire primary. It's a new choice for Trump, and it doesn't matter that the lyrics suggest caution; the title seems to increasingly fit the shattering of Republican political orthodoxy Trump is promising should he win the White House.
In a nearly one-hour speech, Trump railed against pharmaceutical companies. He railed against oil companies. And insurance companies. And defense contractors. And he set himself against a political system that he said allows big-money corporate bloodsuckers to control the government with campaign contributions.
Whether it's the insurance companies, or the drug companies, or the oil companies, it's all the same thing, Trump said. We're never going to get our country back if we keep doing this.

Back on Ron Paul's 2007 campaign we had sign wavers and launched our first moneybomb to fund some office furniture. $40k so Jeff Frazee & Jonathan Bydlak could have chairs. 
Clearly 2016 was tough, but we've come so far since then.
First, thank you Rand Paul and your family for sacrificing everything and putting yourself through a grueling two and a half+ years. Without you and your incredible campaign we wouldn't be where we are today -- Doug Stafford, Chip, Vincent Harris, AJ Spiker.
We gained thousands of dedicated new volunteers, even with other candidates talking about some of the same ideas. 
We raised huge sums of money and had a SuperPAC spearheaded by Jeff FrazeeEdward KingMatt Kibbe, & Terry Kibbe(I was honored to be your CTO). 
Moving forward, there's tremendous upside.
There is a huge and growing youth movement in Young Americans for Libertyand Students For Liberty
Rand not only got congressional endorsements from Rep. Mick MulvaneyRep. Raúl R. LabradorCynthia Lummis but have them campaigning on the ground for our ideas - Justin AmashCongressman Thomas Massie
We've got an entire House Freedom Caucus.
We've redefined media -- now outlets cover our story better than ever. Thank you RareJack HunterJulie Borowski and Corie W. Stephens
So look on the bright side. We're on it. In 9 years we've come a long way -- and we're just getting started.
Thanks for fighting, not just for people, but for the ideas, however you are doing it:
Now, what's next, and how can I help you?

"Citizens United" and Super PACs: voters don't give a damn!
I am a libertarian Democrat (about six of us) but also an admirer of Bernie Sanders. He's against elective wars, pro-choice, pro-gay rights, and opposed to Big war profiteers, Big investment banks and the criminal enterprise known as Big Pharma.
But Bernie loses me when he rails against billionaires buying elections with their Super PACs. The reality is that strong message, which Bernie has, always trumps (pardon that word) big money. Money follows message, as Bernie has proved with his millions of small donors.
Countless elections have been lost by candidates who exponentially outspend their opponents.
A First Amendment purist, I am willing for anyone to use or mis-use his or her money to try to send messages, no matter how good or how bad I may find them. I'll let the voters decide.
And I predict Big Message (Bernie's) will beat Big Ambition (TheClintons.)
So Bernie, enough with the billionaire babble, and Super PACs and Koch Bros. nonsense. Stop the "process liberalism" focus, and talk about things that really matter to Americans, like ending American imperialism, easing the burden of student loans, stopping the criminal activity of Big Pharma, halting Big Bank abuses, and ceasing the War on Drugs on Us !!!!
cc: Nick GillespieTad DevineDan BalzRoger SimonNorman OrnsteinChuck Todd
P.S. That doesn't mean you can't remind voters of the influence of Goldman Sachs on TheClintons. But take your campaign to the next level. Stop the billionaire baloney, with which you risk becoming a caricature of yourself, and reach persuadable Democrats and especially independents on the above problems.
Sarah A. Harvard shared Washington Post's video.

This is the MOST awkward thing I have ever seen. They can't even get out on stage correctly and are trying to vie for a position to rule a nation.

Joe Arpaio endorsed Trump yesterday and Tony Perkins endorsed Cruz, so Rubio is going to need a really terrible endorsement to keep up. And over on the Democratic side, what with Michael Moore having endorsed Sanders and Noam Chomsky endorsed Hillary Clinton, Martin O'Malley is looking like the poor guy left without a date for the Awfulness Ball.

Corie W. Stephens

Hillary Clinton is a uniquely unlikable politician. And she proved why more so than ever during a CNN town hall hosted by Anderson Cooper this week. 
She said that when she accepted $675,000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs, she thought she wasn't going to run for president again. That's BS you can smell from a mile away. 
Clinton also had a ridiculous but amusing reaction to hearing how much she lost young people by in Iowa. She really shows how out of touch she is nearlyany time she opens her mouth.
Clinton's going to lose New Hampshire. And she's going to lose it big time. Question is, will that momentum carry into Super Tuesday? Conventional wisdom has been that she'll win the south. But new polls are starting to show that's no longer a guarantee. 
My latest at Rare Politics.
Debate grades:
Jeb - A
Christie - A-
Trump - B
Kasich - B-
Cruz - C
Carson - D
Rubio - F
For the record I am leaning towards voting for Rubio and would NEVER vote for Christie but we have to be honest - Marco had a terrible night and Christie had a good one. Side note: where has this Jeb been?

Cruz talking about how tough he is on National defense sounds like a closeted gay dude talking about how hard he bangs chicks ‪#‎GOPDebate‬

Libertarian Adrian Wylie makes news

Watch: Bernie's Response To A Guy Fainting Behind Him Sums Up His Entire Political Life: Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders was giving a speech at a press conference on Wednesday when all of the sudden he heard a loud crash behind him. A man standing off to the side of the stage had passed out and hit the ground hard like a falling redwood tree.
