Both major parties have caucused in Nevada.  The respective winners are Hillary Clinton, taking the Democrat delegates, and Donald Trump, taking the Republican delegates.  The preliminary state elections are far from over, but Clinton and Trump are piling up victories compared to Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio. This political climate creates a fantastic opportunity for the Libertarian Party!

The Racism of the Drug War (Part 2)

Local citizens protest federal closure of a Hollywood MMJ dispensary.
“End the drug war. The deteriorating economic conditions and the mess with immigration invite the violence of the drug lords and corrupt officials on both sides. It’s time to break up the coalition of the religious drug warriors and the drug dealers who fight any effort to decriminalize drugs. It’s time to treat all drugs the way we treat alcohol and cigarettes, substances that kill millions more than hard drugs do."

News from the North: End of Year Report

4211333_c9ae723b08_o_1200x630.jpg

This article was originally published in the December 2015 newsletter.

It's the end of the year. The sun rises later and sets earlier, the ground is either barren or covered in snow, the temperatures consistently dive below freezing when they can be bothered to stay above freezing at all. Ice covers our windshields, pipes occasionally freeze and crack, the passes out of town occasionally close. Though it all sounds depressing and bleak - and, sometimes, it is - it's also a necessary step toward renewal and new life. Winter brings us fresh snow, without which we don't have water for summer.

Longtime Congressman Ron Paul draws attention to many Americans supporting the war on drugs out of the belief that drug prohibition is morally correct.  But if only morality were the true motivation behind the nearly hundred-year-old U.S. federal war on drugs!  In reality, the drug war is purely racist and xenophobic at its genesis.

LPN activists train for busy campaign season

The Libertarian Party of Nevada is arguably the most active state chapter of the Libertarian Party in America.  I was incredibly proud to take part in this weekend’s activist training at the Libertarian Party of Nevada headquarters in Las Vegas. When I originally joined this band of freedom activists in the desert, I never imagined I’d get a front row seat at a third party’s historic growth.

Iowa Caucuses a Huge Opportunity for Libertarian Party!

Libertarian Party activists strategizing

If anything characterizes American politics in the days before and immediately after the Iowa Caucuses, it’s this: all emotions, no logic or reason, plenty of name calling and demagoguery.  How are we different?

Supporters of the Pepsi candidate verbally abuse folks voting for the Coca-Cola candidate. Republicans accuse other Republicans of being socialists and Democrats accuse other democrats of being fascist corporate sellouts. American voters seem genuinely down in the dumps with the results from Iowa.

Frankly, this is the best news anyone could give to the Libertarian Party.
