    What about the uranium deal with Rosatom? Why is it that none of those beating the Citizens United drum never mention that one?

    The only people who have any truthful claim to the moniker of “original libertarian” (Barry Goldwater, David F. Nolan, John Hospers, Ayn Rand, etc.) have been deceased for at least ten years now.

    That’s called gaslighting. Becky Stevens did it once to me, now Becky doesn’t do that with me any more after I started screencapturing every conversation I have with her.

    Apparently Becky isn’t the only Republican to gaslight people who show her up. I’ve come across another one that does this, who hasn’t posted here (I’ll relay his name by PM).

    On the Democrat side, Donald F. Schiff is a gaslighter — he did that to me a few weeks ago on Heath Haussamen’s page.

    He published one of my articles recently, so he can’t be all bad:

    Actually, the “NO W.A.R.” sticker most probably signified his opposition to a certain person, whose departure from the LP in September of 2012 was a good thing for the LP.

[LPNM] Allen Cogbill, In Memoriam

Filed under: Friends, Obituary — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:46 PM (21:46)

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the passing of our beloved Treasurer, Allen Cogbill. Allen passed away unexpected on October 25 from a recently-contracted lung disease. Allen served the LPNM as Treasurer, doing a fabulously superb job of bookkeeping, for as long as I have been associated with the Party. He was a dedicated Libertarian who lived his principles, and was a good friend to us all.

Allen, thank you for having enriched our lives with your presence. We are going to miss you.

Marty Swinney
State Chair, Libertarian Party of New Mexico

    Here’s what some of the people who were present when the Second Amendment was drafted and ratified said about the issue:

    “The power of the sword, say the minority…, is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every terrible implement of the soldier are the birthright of Americans.”
    — Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788

    “Whereas civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.”
    — Tench Coxe, “Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution,” under the pseudonym “A Pennsylvanian” in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789, p. 2 col. 1.

    “As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise, and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body, and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks. Never think of taking a book with you.”
    — Thomas Jefferson, Letter to his nephew Peter Carr from Paris, France (19 August 1785).

    “That the people have a Right to mass and to bear arms; that a well regulated militia composed of the Body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper natural and safe defense of a free state, that standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, and therefore ought to be avoided.”
    — George Mason, Draft proposal, 3 Elliot, Debates at 659 (1773)

    “That a well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defence of a free State; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided, as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.”
    — George Mason, Article 12, Virginia Declaration (1776)

    And then there’s Federalist Paper #46, by James Madison

    Except that Sununu is more in line with the traditional Republican Party — supporting protectionist tariffs and tax-subsidized construction projects. In other words, they were Keynesians before Keynes. For example, see Weld’s record after 1992:

    “Dear Bipartisan Report,”

    The very title of their site gives their game away.

    They’re all about the further entrenchment of the Democrats and Republicans in positions of political (and thus economic and social) power.

    If things get better for the rest of us, that’s an unintended consequence as far as they’re concerned. But they’ll still claim the credit.

    For over twenty years, the League of Women Voters has been biased at the organizational level against the pre-existing, natural, individual, civil right to own and carry weapons, as protected by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Article II, Section 6 of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico.

    http://lwv.org/content/gun-control

    Nakamura is / was opposed to jury nullification. I asked her face to face about it at a campaign meet-and-greet. Plus, a criminal defense attorney friend of mine says Nakamura loves to throw people in jail.

    Where on the web can you go to read a judge’s rulings? I find the campaign fliers to be puff pieces, and I’d like to see for myself whether a judge is any good or not instead of taking the recommendations of the GOP and the Judicial Standards Commission for granted.

    1. Same friend said that even the prosecutors kept trying to get away from Nakamura as a judge, because the plea deals they came up with weren’t harsh enough.

    3. Most of the cats I’ve had were great with dogs.
    4. Where in your political science cirriculum did they tell you it’s impermissible for voters to use their ballots to tell the political class to fuck off? Indeed, that seems to be the overall theme of this year’s election — voters telling the politicians what they can go do with themselves.

    Surely the Republican House Majority would defund Obamacare, what with the way they’ve been complaining about it since 2010?

  13. Posted to Facebook

    And then Obama will veto that repeal, as he’s done the past 40-some times that they voted to repeal it. So what? All of the funding bills have to go through the House, so all they have to do is say, “We’re not appropriating any money for it,” and it dies. No money for it, no money to pay the IRS people to collect the “shared responsibility” fines, etc.

    Maybe when Republicans are anything more than low-tax Democrats, we might actually vote for Republican candidates. Remember Ron Paul, David Clements, Adam Kokesh? They ran as Republicans and didn’t have any problems getting Libertarians supporting their candidacies.

    So now you’re behind Trump? Because, after all, he’s the guy who won the Republican primaries.

    I look real hard, too. I haven’t seen the NM House Republicans defund or cut spending to much of anything.

    Have they defunded or cut spending for the Medicaid expansion that caused the current budget “crisis” ?

    Have they defunded or cut spending on the film subsidies?

    How about the Local Economic Development Agency?

    And when I use the word “cut,” I’m not talking about cutting the rate of growth below what the Democrats want for the next year. I’m talking about cutting below existing levels.

    The question is this: are State House Republicans incompetent, or is their election-year rhetoric about fiscal responsibility just that — ad copy for the election year?

  17. Posted to Facebook

    So Michael Sanchez can spend tax dollars without the approval of House Republicans or the Republican Governor? Funny, I thought that both the House and Senate had to pass bills for them to go to the Goverrnor. All the House Republicans have to do is tell Michael Sanchez that they’re not going to pass his spending bills. But they don’t seem to do that. Why is that?

  18. Posted to Facebook

    If you’re happy to settle for marginal improvement, that’s all you’re going to get, and maybe not even that.

    And increasing spending by less than what the Democrats want isn’t really an improvement.

    Except using the word “isolationist” in relation to libertarians is pure slander and libel. True isolationism is Japan between 1635 and 1853, or China between 1757 and 1839. Libertarians are simply opposed to foreign policies that micromanage the rest of the world.

    I don’t see Trump himself as a racist — he’ll use eminent domain to take a white guy’s house for his next parking lot or golf course just as quickly as he’ll take a black guy’s house — but he seems willing to play to that crowd if doing so gets him what he wants.

    And of course, most of what we see of him is filtered through the lamestream snoozemedia, which is 96% in the bag for Hillary.

    “If I were the questioner, I’d be more interested in asking the current bureaucrats why and how they think expanding the size and scope of their role is going to improve our lives.”

    I see nothing wrong with that approach, as well.

    A 5% tax won’t fund the massive, bloated government that you insist is necessary. I never said that it would. Before 1913, America got by with just tariffs and excise duties, and still fielded a Navy, Army and Marine Corps.

Today in history

Comments I’ve posted

    OK, so the picture isn’t the greatest . . .

    nmpolitics.net: What would a Libertarian Administration look like?

    That’s the whole point of the article — government has no legitimate business being involved in every aspect of human existence.

    You forgot the line “You can’t build your stinky factory next to my house!”

    And it also means that others are freer to develop alternatives to the product that just jumped in price by a factor of nine. For example: Epi-Pen — the price on Epi-Pens themselves went up by a factor of five, and a week later I saw a dozen articles on my Facebook feed showing how to get the same sort of treatment from alternative sources for about fifteen-twenty bucks.

    I’m still waiting for my checks from my corporate sponsors.

    No, seriously, why is that the presidential candidate with the most “anti-business” rhetoric (Hillary Clinton) is raking in the most corporate donations in this election cycle?

    Who said TPP was anything close to “free market” policy?

    Does the pipeline cross onto tribal land? If not, the tribe(s) have no standing to block it.

    And don’t the oil and gas companies run pipelines from their offshore sites to onshore refineries? Gosh, they must be leaking all over, because we all know that their shareholders make more profit as more oil is spilled.

    As for healthcare, Medicare and Medicaid were started in 1965, and costs have continued to go up and up ever since. That’s what happens when you tell people “this won’t cost you anything.”

    If we change or dump the tax system first, then there might not be a tax code with a 501(c)(3) provision in it. Whatever — the welfare agencies should still be non-profit charities outside the government sector.

    As for the “smoke and mirrors,” we libertarians don’t see anything but that on the progressive side. Aesthetics are arbitrary.

    “I know. I wanted to point out the lie within the rosy article. It is quite simple really, ask a few questions and wait for answers that actually make sense. I never get any.”

    Funny — that’s what we think of progressives, too. What a coincidence!

    Costs also rise for those of us in the private sector who get stuck with the bill for the welfare state, too. The public sector can tighten its belt just like we poor suckers not on the public sector payroll or the dole just as much, if not more.
