Should elections be mere formalities?

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED JUNE 13, 2016

0AE99C3A148CBE2C77423C0AF38F01077C50156AB2EE27C8E84D34C5C8C09566“We can’t let just anyone on the ballot, otherwise it would be cluttered with too many choices and lead to voter confusion,” is often said by those who advocate for laws that burden minor party and independent candidates. However, in many cases anyone wishing to run for office as a Republican or Democrat can obtain a spot on the ballot with a minimal filing fee or turning in a very small number of petitions. Many advocates for controlling who gets on the ballot will say, “but they still have to win their primary.” Which in a lot of cases is simply a formality. see more…

Debates, free speech and forced association

third_party_debate_2012_10_24In a ruling that came as a surprise to very few, US District Judge Rosemary Collyer dismissed the antitrust case filed by Gary Johnson & Jill Stein against the Commission on Presidential Debates. The complaint set forth four counts: Count I & Count II claim violations of Section 1 & 2 of the Sherman Antitrust Act; “Count III [asserts] violation[s] of First Amendment rights of free speech and association; and Count IV [claims] intentional interference with prospective economic advantage and relations.” see more…

Reasons not to vote

DontVoteButtonI recently came across an article titled “20 Reasons Not to Vote” which basically claimed in different ways that voting is an act of aggression, and no one who claims to support a peaceful society can vote without violating the principles they claim to support. I see writings like this every few years, generally before a Presidential election, and feel it’s important to remind people that voting can be done defensively. I know that in some elections voters are given the option of a candidate in favor of increasing government or a candidate in favor of increasing government even more, however there are times when the voters are faced with a question of increasing a tax rate, decreasing spending, repealing a regulation, etc. In those cases, it is possible to vote in a manner that will actually be self-defense. I’ve previously written about how voting can not rightly be seen as “endorsing the system” as some non-voters like to claim. Today I’m going to do something different, dare I say unexpected, and give my own list of reasons not to vote. see more…

Three candidates – Who will Hammer of Truth endorse?

Thanks to Google the verdict might be obvious if you know that Nick Sarwark is currently the chair of the Libertarian Party. We’re guessing this means search engines think he’s kind of a big deal.

Reince Preibus, we guess you can guest post.

Yep, Go Gary Go!

In defense of torrents

With much fanfare from the Department of Justice, the alleged operator of the largest torrent site, Artem Vaulin, was arrested in Poland and the website was seized. Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell said, “[Artem] Vaulin is charged with running today’s most visited illegal file-sharing website, responsible for unlawfully distributing well over $1 billion of copyrighted materials. In an effort to evade law enforcement, Vaulin allegedly relied on servers located in countries around the world and moved his domains due to repeated seizures and civil lawsuits. His arrest in Poland, however, demonstrates again that cybercriminals can run, but they cannot hide from justice.” see more…

No, Darrell Castle Is Not More Libertarian Than Gary Johnson

Darrell CastleAn interview with Constitution Party presidential candidate, Darrell Castle, seems to have much of the minor-party blogsphere up in debate and argument over Mr. Castle’s claim that he is more libertarian then Libertarian Party presidential candidate, Gary Johnson.

Therefore, this informed author views it as a necessary must to pick apart and refute Mr. Castle’s highly-questionable claim to even being ‘libertarian’, including his credentials, background, as well as the background of his political party -in comparison to the LP’s viewpoints on the issues and of libertarianism (small ‘l’) itself.

First off, this article right here on the LP’s website clearly shows where the LP and the CP platforms differentiate from each other, including social issues, the perspective on religion, and the role of religion in government as well, which some CP individuals and state affiliates do like to point out as well, albeit from their own viewpoint. see more…
