A CHRISTMAS WISH

A CHRISTMAS WISH

With two days left before Christmas, I thought it would be a good time to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year and also to give to you my Christmas wish.

My wish for everyone reading this is for you to take the time to pick up a copy of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights and give it a good and thoughtful read. Think about what was going on in our young nation when these documents were written. Think about what was happening in our country that necessitated the need to make the Amendments to the Constitution. Give a thought to the men and women who struggled, fought and died so that these right could be given to all of us. A small few willing to sacrifice their freedoms so that we could have more freedom. These men and women had to fight, protest, sacrifice, and sometimes die so that we could live a life that had more freedom than they had. Give this a thought and then give thanks to those people.

My wish is that by reading these documents you will yearn to learn more about what it takes to be free. My wish is that you will value your freedoms and cherish them. I hope you will fight for them so that you can hand these gifts down to your children and grandchildren. Teach them of these gifts and how fragile they really are. How easily they can be taken from them by evil men and women in positions of power. Teach them how they can be active in the process to oust those evil men and women and replace them with people of integrity who value these gifts as much as they do.

My gift to all of you reading this is that you have my word I will fight this fight for you. If you cannot afford a copy of the Constitution please email me at tuff@solmc.org and I will sent you a copy.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Tuff

LEAVE NO DOUBT

MY OLD MAN was a tough son of a bitch. He had tattoos and a Harley before they were mainstream. He had a lot of qualities about him that would not be considered “good” but he also had one quality in particular that I always admired and wanted to copy.

At his funeral, many men would come up to me and say nice things about my dad. I knew most of his friends because my dad was a man who put a high value on his friends and brothers. Every weekend was a gathering at his place and his home was set up so that people felt at ease and welcome. People liked being around my old man. I did, too. The best way I can describe it is that I felt safe around my dad. When I was with him I never worried about anything. My dad was the apex predator.
One man in particular was standing in the background, patiently waiting on everyone to speak to me and shake my hand. He must have waited thirty minutes for everyone to leave. When he walked up to me, he had tears in his eyes and he took my hand. I could tell he was not quite all there mentally and physically but when he talked about my dad he stood up straight and he had pure admiration in his eyes. This is what he said to me:
“I grew up in the same neighborhood as your dad. He was the cool guy in our neighborhood. He never let anyone pick on me if he was around. And the other boys were so scared of him that they never picked on me when he wasn’t around because they knew what he would do to them if I told him. I wanted to be cool like your dad. He was my friend.”
I often hear people say that they found out things about their dads after they died that they never knew. I didn’t. I knew this about my dad all of my life. If my dad thought of you as a friend or brother, he left no doubt in your mind where you stood. He always said what he thought, even if sometimes it would have been more politically correct to be silent. I’m not even sure if he knew what politically correct meant.
I try and live my life the same way. I have a family of my own and if you ask them they will tell you that I will do what I have to do to keep my family safe and protect my way of life. I raise my boys to feel the same way. Nobody messes with my family. I have three sons, four daughters, and a beautiful wife. If you ask any of them they will tell you that I make them feel safe and I am proud of that more than anything else I have accomplished.
Things are changing in our country and we are going in a direction where the destination is tyranny and oppression by our government. Can we stop this train? I really don’t have the answer. But I can tell you that the days of remaining silent and not speaking out are over. If you want to stop this train, we are all going to have to be an obstacle in its path. This means someone is going to be run over before the train slows down. Leave no doubt that you are willing to speak out and sacrifice your way of life to preserve it for your children and grandchildren. Speak up, show up, and leave no doubt in other’s minds what you think and how far you’re willing to go.
If you are reading this, it means you have found the Sons of Liberty. We are the apex predators.

Immigration

IMMIGRATION

FIRST of all, I want to say that my personal views are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of strict Libertarianism or of the Sons of Liberty Motorcycle Club. That being said, I have a unique perspective on immigration that some of my brothers do not have.

My dad’s family was from Spain. They immigrated to Puerto Rico then my dad came to the States when he joined the army in 1964. He never went back to Puerto Rico because he much preferred the Mainland. My mother’s dad was German. His family settled in Louisville, KY where my mother was born. Through a set of fortunate events, my dad and my mom ended up in Georgia and met at a bowling alley. English was not my dad’s first language and in his 74 years on Earth, I am not sure it was his second, either. People would often ask my dad what he was and his answer was always the same: I am an American. He served his country and like most soldiers in the 60’s and 70’s, served in Vietnam. He was highly decorated and earned a Bronze Star with V Device for valor. Also, like most combat vets, he never talked about it. He was with the 9th Infantry Division, 4th of the 47th Mobile Riverine Force, a unit that saw more than its fair share of combat. He was part of five campaigns and was interviewed by the History Channel for 16 hours before he died of complications from brain and blood cancer brought on by exposure to Agent Orange.

I tell you this to show you the difference between an immigrant today and an immigrant then. At the turn of the century, immigrants came here by the ship load. They only wanted one thing: to be part of the most amazing country on earth. They wanted a chance at the American Dream. During World War Two, it is well documented that immigrants from Italy, Ireland, and other countries were the fiercest fighters on our side. This was also true of British immigrants from their colonies. Why did they fight so hard for us? Because they saw the worth of what America could offer them. They could see the value of freedom and the contrast between a free America they countries that they left.

Immigrants today come to America and they see a free ride. They can come here and suck on the teat of the government and give nothing back in return. I truly believe that there are good immigrants who come here illegally. I see them working hard to support their families. They are too busy working to protest the fact that we do not have a driver’s license test in Spanish or that they shouldn’t be subject to our laws because they differ from the laws where they left. They are busy assimilating instead of protesting. I firmly, FIRMLY believe that the biggest immigration issue is not illegals crossing the border but government regulations forcing Americans to treat them differently when they get here. We SHOULD have an official language and immigrants should learn it. Welfare should be temporary, if any at all for immigrants both legal and illegal. And if you get caught sneaking into our country, you get sent back, no questions asked and put in the back of the line. These programs are not a disservice to tax paying citizens but to the immigrants themselves because they hold them back from achieving the American Dream of being self-sustaining. I’m from the South and I learned to swim by my dad throwing me into the deep end of the pool without a life jacket. This same philosophy should be used when dealing with immigrants: sink or swim. The cream will rise to the top.

Now we are dealing with a new immigration problem. Immigrants from Syria and Iraq. One only has to look at Great Briton and France to see what a liberal immigration policy can do to a country. The hard core Libertarian would say we don’t need borders and that this country was founded and settled by immigrants. I submit that these immigrants are not like our great-great grandparents. No, these immigrants are leaving a cesspool and want to reproduce that very cesspool on these lands. They aren’t intending to become Americans but wish for us to submit to their culture, the very culture from which they are fleeing. Look at Dearborn, MI and Minneapolis, MN for example. In Minneapolis, the Somali Muslims are flooding the welfare rolls and Section 8 housing. They are among the least educated people in the world and armed with EBT cards and Section 8 housing vouchers show no intentions for actually going to work. Dearborn is a bastion of Muslim life and they have transformed that city from an industrial might to an Islamic enclave complete with Sharia courts and Islamic banks. They have Morality Patrols to ensure that the females are not speaking with men and wearing the traditional Muslim Hajib. Where is the freedom there?

If you look at second generation immigrants, you would see little difference between their children and the children of the majority of Americans who have been here for generations. However, these new immigrants show no signs of assimilating into American culture. They do not believe in American exceptionalism and I would make a bet that they would not be willing to shed blood for this country if duty calls. Being a citizen of this great Republic requires a great responsibility that this latest wave of immigrants is unwilling to shoulder. Citizenship classes should be mandatory and as I stated earlier, public assistance should be limited and finite.

In conclusion, I am of the opinion that any immigration policy should be thought through with the best interests of the citizens who already live here and have made it here. A lax immigration policy will benefit no one and only jeopardizes the security of this country. You can come here but you have to become American, by God.

FREEDOM

Freedom. This is a word we Americans throw around, well, freely. Almost 240 years ago, The Great Republic was founded on this principle alone. Freedom to practice any religion, freedom to live and work as we please, freedom to write what we please, freedom to do as we please.

Fast forward to today. The Heritage Foundation lists the most free countries in the world. The US ranks 12th. We are less free than at any time in our history. The 1st Amendment is under attack. If you have a thought that is different, not from the majority, but from a loud, obnoxious minority, you will be shouted down and shamed. Today’s social justice warriors are not content with silencing you. They will go out of their way to destroy you. They are not satisfied until you are unemployed and bankrupt. They will spread lies and hide behind the very right they will deny you. Universities have established “zones” where 1st Amendment rights are suspended as to not offend the tender hearts of students. Somewhere along the way in the last 20 years, children have been told they have the right not to be offended. Maybe it was a pamphlet given out with their participation trophies.

The 2nd Amendment is also under attack. As I write this, President Obama has publicly stated that his goal for the last year of his presidency is massive gun control. It is the opinion of the author that the 2nd Amendment is already throttled to a point that would be unrecognizable to the Founding Fathers. I guess that the definition of “infringed” has changed over the last two centuries. I do not recognize bullshit gun laws. I carry where and when I choose and I choose to carry everywhere and all of the time. My gun rights will not be infringed.

The 4th Amendment is also under attack. No longer can we travel as we please. We are subject to border patrol checkpoints, not only at the borders but 150 miles from the borders. The Supreme Court has ruled that police officers, the very ones sworn to protect and serve, can lie to you in order to trick you into relinquishing these rights.( Frazier v. Cupp, 394 U.S. 731, 739 (1969). Your private property can be searched upon the suggestion of a dog trained to “alert” at the command of the officer in control of the dog. This goes beyond ridiculous. If you went back and told Thomas Jefferson that your personal property could be searched because a dog told a police officer that you had something illegal, he would die of laughter.

Your personal property can also be seized and sold BEFORE you are even convicted of a crime. And in the event that you are found not guilty of the crime, you have no right to ask for the return of your property or even reimbursement for the value of the property. Your bank accounts can be frozen on a whim by the IRS BEFORE they prove that you have committed a crime, putting you in financial trouble. Does this sound like freedom to you?

The question today is do we continue to allow the government to overstep the boundries set forth by The Founding Fathers and the Constitution, or do we do something about it? For the last hundred years, we have elected either a Republican or a Democrat to represent us in government. The only thing we have gained is less freedom.

We have come to a crossroads. We have been conned into thinking we have two choices, Democrats or Republicans. This is simply not true. If you love freedom, you have a third choice. Libertarian. Two-thirds of the citizens who are eligible to vote did not vote in the last election. If that two-thirds could get behind a third party candidate, we could transform this country and change the direction. I will start with me. If there is no Libertarian candidate, I will write one in. I refuse to continue down this path. I choose to buck the system. I choose Liberty and Freedom.

Trademark Dispute Resolved

The SONS OF LIBERTY MOTORCYCLE CLUB would like to take this opportunity to announce that the Parties have reached an amicable settlement agreement and that we now own all rights to the Mark, “SONS OF LIBERTY”.

We would like to thank everyone for their support!  Now, let’s get back to the business of motorcycling, educating, and defending our Liberty as our Founding Fathers, those esteemed FIRST Sons of Liberty, risked their fortune, honor, and lives to provide for us.

Yours in Liberty,

Trademark Infringement & Federal Filings

Attention Friends of SOLMC:

Many of you have inquired about the status of our Facebook feed, and I have been unable to answer you until now.  The short answer is that a fraudulent Trademark infringement complaint was lodged with Facebook and they closed our Group page.

If you have learned anything about us as a group, it’s that we honor the spirit of the Original Sons of Liberty and there is an unshakable belief in our mission and purpose.  Our research into the original Son’s of Liberty has led us to the conclusion that they were not started in one region, or by one person, but were derived from factions across the Colonies that were disgruntled with their treatment from the Crown.  The name Sons of Liberty was assigned during debate in Parliament and as the Colonial factions became aware of each other, they utilized the name and formed loose networks of association that eventually sprouted the Continental Congress.

Over the years we have been aware of several motorcycle clubs or riding groups that have appeared on the scene.  Most are gone, but a couple are still active.  There have been other groups that were about to form that reached out to us because they discovered the name was already in use.  Our position has always been one of tolerance with respect to how the Original Sons of Liberty were formed.  We never sought to trademark the name “SONS OF LIBERTY” as we believed that history owns the name, not any individual or group.  In other words, and in Libertarian fashion, don’t mess with me and I won’t mess with you.  It’s a pretty simple philosophy that we hold dear and preach to anyone with regards to government or personal intrusion.

We are excited about the thousands of requests to join us that we have received from across the world and devised a plan to be more inclusive rather than exclusive.  We stated this intent on Facebook and that was about the time we started having conflict with another club claiming to be The Sons of Liberty, and they are also out of Texas.

We are now forced to protect ourselves and lay claim to our Right to Superior use of the name “SONS OF LIBERTY MOTORCYCLE CLUB”.  We have filed an official petition to cancel the trademark registration 4703392 and filed an injunction in Federal Court.  The simple fact is, we have been operating under the name “SONS OF LIBERTY MOTORCYCLE CLUB” since November of 2008 and that is documented.  The defending club claims April of 2009.

We are now in the unfortunate position of defending ourselves.  We were content to leave this other group alone as long as we were left alone.  But now they have treaded on our goodwill and we will see them exposed as the thieves and liars they are and nothing short of their disbandment will suffice.

For us, we are operating as “business as usual”.  Nothing has changed.  We are still growing.  We are still educating.  We still want to find those men we can call brother.  Keep your inquiries coming, and we will keep answering you.

That is all I will say on the legal issues for now.  I will keep you updated as things progress.

A Question from a Confused Biker

Dear Awesome,

What makes your club so special? Why are you better than that upstart group?

Sincerely,

Confused Biker

Dear Confused Biker,

You may, or may not, be familiar with motorcycle clubs; however, we are not the typical motorcycle club you may have previously encountered or been associated with. Number one, we are not an outlaw (1%) club and never will be. Furthermore, whereas many non-outlaw MCs have a social agenda, our agenda/mission is specifically committed to bringing liberty back to America. Liberty the way America’s founding fathers and the original Sons of Liberty understood it. Yes, we are motorcycle enthusiasts who like to party, ride, and have a good time, but our mission is to take back America from government. We propose to do this in many ways and as we grow I’m sure even more will be added.

We start with educating the citizens about what real freedom is all about and what it would look like to truly be free. People jokingly say, “It’s a free country, isn’t it?” However, government has taken so many of the peoples’ freedom away. They did it little by little, not overnight; if they had, Americans would have revolted. Instead they did it insidiously over time. Today there is no part of the average American’s life that does not have the tyrannical hand of government on it.

We believe that each person owns his own life and property, and that each person has the right to live his own life in any way he chooses as long as he respects the equal rights of others. To become a member of the Sons of Liberty Motorcycle Club you must believe this and be able to say, as John Galt said, “I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”

In addition to our mission, consistent with traditional motorcycle clubs, we are a brotherhood—not simply a loose association. Therefore, we need to get to know the men we will call brothers and defend.

Taking into consideration what you just read, I will ask you some questions –

* Do you believe that you need the permission of others to assemble?  We do not.  Their first paragraph of “who they are” is a contradiction (http://www.solmctx.com/SOLAbout.html) Although we recognize the Confederation of Clubs (COC) does some excellent legal advocation with regards to biker’s rights, you are fooling yourself if you don’t acknowledge that the COCs primary function is for the dominant 1% club to assert their dominance over you.  I declare that I am a Free Man and entitled to all that my maker provides as long as it doesn’t interfere with the rights of another.  If you want to be dominated like a dog, than that other club is for you (while they still exist.)

* What does the name Sons of Liberty mean to you? You have read our history and our mission statement, so you know that we are trying to remain true to our Founder’s mission.  We have always been encouraged by other groups using the name and proud to share that history.  However, if you want to be a thief and knowingly utilize an existing groups name, tread on their goodwill, attempt to use fraudulent means to shut us down, or be a lapdog to other clubs, then we are not the right club for you. 

* Think about how that other club expanded so quickly? How did they do it and remain true to their core beliefs? Read their “who we are” and “mission statement” and tell me if you believe their actions represent those statements? Are they mailing Colors out to whomever shows an interest? That’s a riding club, not a traditional MC.

I’ll post other Q&A’s as I get ones I think are relevant (or entertain me.)

Yours in Liberty,

What An Inaugural Speech Should Sound Like

Thomas Jefferson’s Inaugural Speech / Noon, March 04, 1801

Friends & Fellow Citizens,
Called upon to undertake the duties of the first Executive office of our country, I avail myself of the presence of that portion of my fellow citizens which is here assembled to express my grateful thanks for the favor with which they have been pleased to look towards me, to declare a sincere consciousness that the task is above my talents, and that I approach it with those anxious and awful presentiments which the greatness of the charge, and the weakness of my powers so justly inspire. A rising nation, spread over a wide and fruitful land, traversing all the seas with the rich productions of their industry, engaged in commerce with nations who feel power and forget right, advancing rapidly to destinies beyond the reach of mortal eye; when I contemplate these transcendent objects, and see the honour, the happiness, and the hopes of this beloved country committed to the issue and the auspices of this day, I shrink from the contemplation & humble myself before the magnitude of the undertaking. Utterly indeed should I despair, did not the presence of many, whom I here see, remind me, that, in the other high authorities provided by our constitution, I shall find resources of wisdom, of virtue, and of zeal, on which to rely under all difficulties. To you, then, gentlemen, who are charged with the sovereign functions of legislation, and to those associated with you, I look with encouragement for that guidance and support which may enable us to steer with safety the vessel in which we are all embarked, amidst the conflicting elements of a troubled world.

During the contest of opinion through which we have past, the animation of discusions and of exertions has sometimes worn an aspect which might impose on strangers unused to think freely, and to speak and to write what they think; but this being now decided by the voice of the nation, announced according to the rules of the constitution all will of course arrange themselves under the will of the law, and unite in common efforts for the common good. All too will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will, to be rightful, must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal laws must protect, and to violate would be oppression. Let us then, fellow citizens, unite with one heart and one mind, let us restore to social intercourse that harmony and affection without which liberty, and even life itself, are but dreary things. And let us reflect that having banished from our land that religious intolerance under which mankind so long bled and suffered, we have yet gained little if we countenance a political intolerance, as despotic, as wicked, and capable of as bitter and bloody persecutions. During the throes and convulsions of the ancient world, during the agonising spasms of infuriated man, seeking through blood and slaughter his long lost liberty, it was not wonderful that the agitation of the billows should reach even this distant and peaceful shore; that this should be more felt and feared by some and less by others; and should divide opinions as to measures of safety; but every difference of opinion is not a difference of principle. We have called by different names brethren of the same principle. We are all republicans: we are all federalists. If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union, or to change its republican form, let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated, where reason is left free to combat it. I know indeed that some honest men fear that a republican government cannot be strong; that this government is not strong enough. But would the honest patriot, in the full tide of successful experiment, abandon a government which has so far kept us free and firm, on the theoretic and visionary fear, that this government, the world’s best hope, may, by possibility, want energy to preserve itself? I trust not. I believe this, on the contrary, the strongest government on earth. I believe it the only one, where every man, at the call of the law, would fly to the standard of the law, and would meet invasions of the public order as his own personal concern.—Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he then be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels, in the form of kings, to govern him? Let history answer this question.

Let us then, with courage and confidence, pursue our own federal and republican principles; our attachment to union and representative government. Kindly separated by nature and a wide ocean from the exterminating havoc of one quarter of the globe; too high minded to endure the degradations of the others, possessing a chosen country, with room enough for our descendants to the thousandth and thousandth generation, entertaining a due sense of our equal right to the use of our own faculties, to the acquisitions of our own industry, to honor and confidence from our fellow citizens, resulting not from birth, but from our actions and their sense of them, enlightened by a benign religion, professed indeed and practised in various forms, yet all of them inculcating honesty, truth, temperance, gratitude and the love of man, acknowledging and adoring an overruling providence, which by all its dispensations proves that it delights in the happiness of man here, and his greater happiness hereafter; with all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people? Still one thing more, fellow citizens, a wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government; and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.

About to enter, fellow citizens, on the exercise of duties which comprehend every thing dear and valuable to you, it is proper you should understand what I deem the essential principles of our government, and consequently those which ought to shape its administration. I will compress them within the narrowest compass they will bear, stating the general principle, but not all its limitations.—Equal and exact justice to all men, of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political:—peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none:—the support of the state governments in all their rights, as the most competent administrations for our domestic concerns, and the surest bulwarks against anti-republican tendencies:—the preservation of the General government in its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home, and safety abroad: a jealous care of the right of election by the people, a mild and safe corrective of abuses which are lopped by the sword of revolution where peaceable remedies are unprovided:—absolute acquiescence in the decisions of the majority, the vital principle of republics, from which is no appeal but to force, the vital principle and immediate parent of the despotism:—a well disciplined militia, our best reliance in peace, and for the first moments of war, till regulars may relieve them:—the supremacy of the civil over the military authority:—economy in the public expence, that labor may be lightly burthened:—the honest payment of our debts and sacred preservation of the public faith:—encouragement of agriculture, and of commerce as its handmaid:—the diffusion of information, and arraignment of all abuses at the bar of the public reason:—freedom of religion; freedom of the press; and freedom of person, under the protection of the Habeas Corpus:—and trial by juries impartially selected. These principles form the bright constellation, which has gone before us and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation. The wisdom of our sages, and blood of our heroes have been devoted to their attainment:—they should be the creed of our political faith; the text of civic instruction, the touchstone by which to try the services of those we trust; and should we wander from them in moments of error or of alarm, let us hasten to retrace our steps, and to regain the road which alone leads to peace, liberty and safety.

I repair then, fellow citizens, to the post you have assigned me. With experience enough in subordinate offices to have seen the difficulties of this the greatest of all, I have learnt to expect that it will rarely fall to the lot of imperfect man to retire from this station with the reputation, and the favor, which bring him into it. Without pretensions to that high confidence you reposed in our first and greatest revolutionary character, whose pre-eminent services had entitled him to the first place in his country’s love, and destined for him the fairest page in the volume of faithful history, I ask so much confidence only as may give firmness and effect to the legal administration of your affairs. I shall often go wrong through defect of judgment. When right, I shall often be thought wrong by those whose positions will not command a view of the whole ground. I ask your indulgence for my own errors, which will never be intentional; and your support against the errors of others, who may condemn what they would not if seen in all its parts. The approbation implied by your suffrage, is a great consolation to me for the past; and my future solicitude will be, to retain the good opinion of those who have bestowed it in advance, to conciliate that of others by doing them all the good in my power, and to be instrumental to the happiness and freedom of all.

Relying then on the patronage of your good will, I advance with obedience to the work, ready to retire from it whenever you become sensible how much better choices it is in your power to make. And may that infinite power, which rules the destinies of the universe, lead our councils to what is best, and give them a favorable issue for your peace and prosperity.

Thomas Jefferson

One of the most well-known founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of theDeclaration of Independence. The ideas of liberty he promoted continue to form the basis of the American cultural heritage today.

The Future of the Libertarian Movement

With the first debate out of the way, the GOP/ DEM politico did nothing to convince the American people of a secure and better future. What it did, is solidify a place for the Libertarian Party (LP). Ok, Governor Gary Johnson was excluded but his media time did increase. During the debate and after, his exclusion garnished enough talk, for the media to take notice. Furthermore, some sponsors even withdrew support from the First Presidential Debate because of the mandated two party format. From the GOP/DEM Presidential party nomination (teleprompter fiasco), lack of specifics on key topics, lack of action on key current National events unfolding, and inconsistent decision making of the current Presidential cabinet, more and more Americans are disenchanted with the Two party system today. The TWO parties have done it to themselves by not providing the leadership that Americans expect out of their Government.

The Libertarian movement has taken off, largely through social networking, the grass root movement of hard working, free thinking Americans, getting the job done. Political analysis have already predicted that Gov. Gary Johnson, even with his comparative low media exposure, is expected to take away key votes in States that were heavy DEM/GOP voting states, possibly affecting the Presidential outcome. Whether now or the next, Libertarian Party will be a a force to be recon with.

Given the time and rope , I think DEM/GOP, will hang themselves with their antiquated view, lack of progressive and intuitive programs, and the ever growing Government intervention, in all aspects of peoples lives…. “LIVE FREE”
