Student Loans Are This Century’s Crisis

Nate Galt | United States

This country is facing a major economic crisis- 1.5 trillion dollars of unpaid student debt. The next generation of college graduates will have hundreds of billions of dollars in borrowed money, most of which they will never be able to repay. After home mortgages, student debt is the second-highest type of consumer debt, higher than credit card debt. With solutions to student loans being thrown around on the campaign trail, it’s time to talk about the future.

2019: The Next Act of Political Theater Begins

By Mason Mohon | @mohonofficial

2018 was a political year, as most years are when one invests their time in politics. But the human mind has a tendency to think of what is right before it as exceptional and important, while it may just be regular. And overall, that’s what 2018 was politically. The political processes that began continued, and some ended. Yet this is what happens every year, and while many of the events were, by all means, important, they weren’t necessarily so important that 2018 trumps every other year.

Beto O’Rourke Faces a Possible Campaign Finance Violation

By Trey Johnson | United States

The race for the Senate in Texas is heated, to say the least. The Republican incumbent Ted Cruz is doing everything he can to invalidate his Democratic opponent, Beto O’Rourke.

O’Rourke is receiving all kinds of support from people who are not Texans. Over a third of the Democratic candidate’s contributions have come from outside of Texas. It is not illegal to receive campaign contributions from outside of the state. The issue at hand is a prohibited campaign contribution from CNN directly to Robert O’Rourke.

CNN offered to host a town hall with both Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke set for October 18th in McAllen Texas. Cruz declined the invitation, but CNN plans to hold the event showcasing the Democratic candidate for an hour of airtime.

Libertarian candidate Neal Dikeman believes this is a clear violation of campaign finance laws and has filed a lawsuit with the Federal Election Commission.

Dikeman’s campaign stated in a press release that “such coverage is not part of a general pattern of campaign-related news account giving reasonably equal coverage to all opposing candidates in CNN’s national service area.”

“Excluding a Libertarian nominee from the debates, because you think I’ll take more votes from you than the other guy is one thing, politics is politics,” he said. “But violating campaign finance laws, especially on this scale is much bigger than that. The scope of this violation should give every American pause.”

Fellow patriot Neal Dikeman and his campaign valued the production, promotion, and broadcast of the event at $10 million making it the largest campaign finance violation in history.

Libertarians Should Support Ted Cruz

Indri Schaelicke | United States

Perhaps the tightest race of the 2018 midterms, Ted Cruz vs Beto O’Rourke has caught the attention of pundits and ordinary pundits across the US alike. Recent polls show conflicting conclusions, with some putting Cruz ahead by wide margins, and others portraying the race as close. At this point, it is impossible to accurately predict the outcome of this election. Considering how uncertain the result of Texas’s Senate election is at this point, it is important that libertarians rally their support behind the incumbent, Republican Junior Senator Cruz to ensure that up-and-coming Democrat Beto does not achieve election to US Senate. If he is elected, liberty will be much more at risk than it is now.
