Must Read: The Anarchist’s Playbook

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

In the most recent issue of Young American Revolution, W. James Antle III writes about the politics of Murray Rothbard.

Rothbard, an anarcho-capitalist, built the philosophical core of the modern libertarian movement. But instead of focusing on his philosophy, the article focuses on Rothbard’s long-standing search for a practical political movement that would build the foundation of his libertarian society:

Rothbard was not always pleased by the results of his excursions into electoral politics. Yet he never stopped trying to build political coalitions to fight against government encroachments and never lost hope that liberty could be more than an abstract ideal. His radical libertarianism—anarchism, really—did not blind him to the value of conventional politicking. The arena could not be ceded to believers in state power.

The REVOLution rolls on…

I have to throw some props to radio talker and friend of the rEVOLution Jack Hunter for his great analysis of the coming election.

Democrat Bob Conley offers conservatives a real choice in November

Lindsey Graham vs. Conservatism

BY JACK HUNTER

Like most South Carolina conservatives last Wednesday morning, I shook my head in disgust over Sen. Lindsey Graham’s triumph in the Republican primary. We all knew it was going to happen, but being reminded was no less painful. It seemed as if the Palmetto State was destined to forever endure Graham, a man that Quin Hillyer, editor of The American Spectator calls the “Worst Republican Senator.”

The following Thursday morning, still bummed, I took notice of a headline in The Post & Courier that read “Dems seem to back conservative.” The article focused on the potential challengers to Graham in November in the Democratic primary, of which Bob Conley was victorious. I knew nothing about Conley and assumed he was just another standard liberal Democrat. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Major Announcement Tonight In Texas

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Tonight Ron Paul will giving a speech “of great importance” at the Texas GOP convention.

JustinTV will stream it live , so do your best to tune in:

Watch live video from Ron Paul 2008 on Justin.tv

UPDATE: Lew Rockwell has the details of the announcement:

Tonight, at a campagn rally adjacent to the Texas state Republican convention in Houston, he will thank all his donors and volunteers, and announce that he is closing down his presidential campaign, and is no longer a candidate for president.

But Ron will still hold his grand rally in Minneapolis on September 2–where he will NOT endorse McCain–and continue his efforts to change the Republican party. He will also, more importantly, step up his educational work for Americans in all walks of life, and all ages from home schoolers to seniors, in the principles of freedom, peace, sound money, Austrian economics, and the free market. Ron’s special targets, as always, will be the warfare state, the Federal Reserve, and the income tax.

Ron will continue to speak on college campuses. And with his own TV studios in Arlington, VA, and Clute, TX, he will also be a frequent commentator on YouTube and many other venues about the outrages of the central government, and what to do about them. His book, The Revolution: A Manifesto, remains on the bestseller list, and he is already working on his next one.

The successor organization to Ron’s presidential campaign and its remaining $4.7 million is his Campaign for Liberty.

And ABC has an article up.

The State of the GOP

Friday, June 6th, 2008

Former Republican congressman Pat Toomey walks up to the GOP’s corpse and pokes it with a stick by using Don Young as the poster child for corruption.

If Republicans want to start winning again they need to return to the principles of fiscal responsibility and limited government that won them control of Congress in 1994. This is no easy task. But the GOP can start by showing Mr. Young the door.

McCain Communications Director to “Paulnuts”: “You’re not welcome in the Republican Party (oh, and Ron Paul is an anti-semite)”

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

Michael Goldfarb in his own words…

… but let me just say to Ron Paul supporters everywhere, and on behalf of the New Right (by which I assume Paul means the Jew Right), get lost. There should be plenty of room for the Paulnuts in Obama’s big tent.
