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.

All About Goldfield

Why did we hold an event in Goldfield?

Earlier this month, the Libertarian Party of Nevada hosted an event in Goldfield, the capital of Esmeralda County. Most people in Nevada, if they know of Goldfield at all, know of it as a speed trap with old, seemingly decrepit buildings between Reno and Las Vegas, where the road suddenly makes a sharp 90-degree turn and the speed limit drops to 25. Then you make the turn, go a little further, the speed limit goes back up to 70, and you continue on your way. 

So, why did the Libertarian Party of Nevada host an event in Goldfield, anyway? There are no gas stations there, though, if you ask the Esmeralda County Sheriff's Office nicely for a couple gallons, they'll help you out for a modest fee. There's only one restaurant - the Dinky Diner - though it's actually pretty good, believe it or not (try the Texas Benedict). There's only one hotel that's still open - the Santa Fe Motel & Saloon, all eight rooms of it - and a rather notorious hotel that's not. According to the US Census, less than 300 people live in Goldfield. What gives?

Alcohol Prohibition Spawned Mexico’s First Drug Cartel

Prohibition agents destroying liquor

Those old enough to remember Prohibition in the U.S. remember it as a controversial and violent era.  The Eighteenth Amendment and Volstead Act, passed by Congress in 1919, prohibited the manufacture and sale of “intoxicating liquor” for recreational use.  Prohibition took effect in January 1920, but its effects will still be felt in 2020.

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., libertarian

Civil_Rights_March_on_Washington__D.C._(Dr._Martin_Luther_King__Jr._and_Mathew_Ahmann_in_a_crowd.)_-_NARA_-_542015.tif.jpg

It’s still fashionable in America to celebrate the birthday of the Reverend, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  It’s a wonderful thing that the Civil Rights Movement is still taught in schools, but quite terrible how the statist agenda behind the curriculum has re-written the history books to portray the federal government as the ultimate savior and champion of civil rights.
