Crispin tells all and Bureaucrash helps promote the great anarchist ideas.

Hear this interview and learn why the collective social contract, as it is generally understood  and advanced, promotes statism above all else.

DownsizedDC: Principled, non-partisan, practical.

Posted by Jesse on February 2, 2009

Jim Babka on “Free Talk Live” (Saturday/Feb 2) discussing the significance of Downsize DC.

From the Downsize DC website:

The best way to judge where we stand is to check out the issues on our Campaigns Page and subscribe to our FREE email newsletter, the Downsizer-Dispatch. We also recommend you read our blog. However, the great thing about is that it isn’t tied to a partisan cause and you can work with us where you agree and opt-out of participation when you disagree.

But if you’re still looking for a quick summary of what is about:

We believe the federal government has grown too centralized, too intrusive, and too expensive. We believe in constitutional limits, smaller government, civil liberties, federalism, and low taxes. We want to end laws and programs that don’t work, cause harm, and violate the Constitution. We want to restore the full force of the 9th and 10th amendments, which reserve most social functions to the people and the states.


The latest Downsize DC campaigns include:

  • Help End the Mexican Civil War
  • End the FED
  • No Bailouts!
  • Make Congress Read Their Bills Before Voting
  • “One Subject at a Time Act”
  • End Bureaucratic “Legislation without Representation”
  • Bring John Shadegg’s ‘Enumerated Powers Act’ to a Vote
  • Federal deficit causes Congressional pay cut
  • I am not afraid
  • THE BIG ISSUE: $53 trillion in unfunded liabilities
  • End the Inflation Tax
  • Support Ron Paul’s “American Freedom Agenda Act”
  • Repeal the REAL ID Act

And more!!

Drug War creates orphans. 1.5 million children with 1 or both parents in jail.

Posted by Jesse on January 5, 2009

Barry Cooper talks about current drug laws and the criminal justice system causing more harm than the drugs themselves.

Call-in show with Barry Cooper. Free Talk Live interviews former Narcotics Officer now “turned to the good side and working against the current drug war.”

Also, don’t miss Ian and Mark talking about the the Liberty Forum (@roughly 50 minutes in). I attended the first one in 07 and would highly recommend it to anyone

Here Ron Paul is at the ’08 Forum.

He mentions young people: For the record, I am 28.

My brother is younger than I and has much more understanding of the issues. He pointed out very succinctly the exact significance of Ron Pauls Campaign: It is the first time in America’s History that a Presidential Candidate adhered to both Libertarian Principles and Austrian Economics.
