The Libertarian Party Can’t Even Balance Its Own Budget

Ryan Lau | @RyanLau71R

Since its inception in 1971, the Libertarian Party has pointed out serious flaws in the American political landscape. From criticizing endless war to condemning wasteful budget spending, the LP has certainly taken note of legitimate issues. But would the party of Chair Nick Sarwark come remotely close to solving them, if elected into office?

On the topic of war, it’s hard to say; supposedly antiwar candidates frequently back down on their promises. Barack Obama is an excellent example of this, for his policies led to the creation of several new wars and countless drone attacks against civilians. But he is no indication of the Libertarian Party, so it is unfair to say whether they would keep their antiwar promises. On fiscal issues, though, disturbing evidence seriously calls their ability to manage money into question.

The Libertarian Party of Nevada is Literally Brain-Dead

Mason Mohon | @mohonofficial

The Libertarian Party is no stranger to absolute buffoonery. From not wanting Ron Paul to speak at their convention to celebrating getting 1% registered libertarians in 5 states, they continue to blunder. Similarly, a recent campaign on The Libertarian Party of Nevada’s Facebook page only continues this trend. In particular, they are celebrating a “Ron Paul Week” on their page. During this week, they are making daily posts targeting Ron Paul and attempting to “go far beyond the politics of the former Republican Congressman.” But this is just another sad brain-dead social media attempt to garner any form of legitimacy. And embarrassingly so.

Venezuelan Libertarian: The Ron Paul Institute Is Wrong

Franklin Camargo | Venezuela

There is a multitude of reasons to take an interest in the Venezuelan crisis and to advocate for freedom in that country. There are plenty of reasons, but in my case, my main motivation lies in experience — for having been expelled from medical school and persecuted by the Maduro regime after I resisted the communist indoctrination at my university. At only 21 years old, I’ve already had a political career in one of the most hostile social environments in the Western Hemisphere.

All my life, except for the last three months that I’ve experienced the American market-driven economy, I’ve lived in the most unfortunate country for a free and individualistic soul to be in. This nefarious doctrine called Revolutionary Socialism has always had devastating consequences, beginning with the collapse of the economy. It eventually reaches into the very spirit of man. The more socialist a nation is, the greater the catastrophe it is capable of achieving.

The Government Must Not Legalize Weed

Tu Lee | @71RepublicMedia

At some point, the Libertarian Party had a revelation. While classic Libertarians like Ron Paul had always run their platform as deeply ideological, the Libertarian Party could simply do away with the complicated thinking. They didn’t need the whole complicated thoughtful policy shtick; they could strip the party down to gays, guns, and weed. Gun owners’ votes were in the bag. All they had to do was promise to let people smoke up and the votes should pour in. Soon they rolled out their new face for these ideas; Gary Johnson and the Libertarian Party pumped out weed signs, weed hats, and weed bumper stickers. So did it work?

Ron Paul: Tulsi Gabbard ‘Is the Very, Very Best’ Democrat

Jack Parkos | @laissez_faire76

Libertarian champion Ron Paul made an appearance on RT recently where he gave his thoughts on the 2020 election. When asked about the candidates, Paul showed little interest in most of the twenty plus candidates running for the Democratic primary. However, he was very enthusiastic about Representative from Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard, calling her the “very best” option.
