And we meet again. I don't know about you, but I'm coughing, sneezing, and generally feeling miserable. I do hope you are doing better! Ah well, if it's not one thing it's another.

And yet, hope springs eternal. I think that's most likely a good thing. That's why pour peeple buy lottery tickets—without hope yer just got nothing, and false hope beats no hope at all.

Speaking of hope, we here at the palatial offices of TLE would like to remind you that we are a Reader Supported eMagazine, and invite you to become a Supporter if you're not already:

Our Presidential Endorsement
by L. Neil Smith
Many folks have asked me who I endorse for the Libertarian Party's 2008 Presidential nomination. Up front, although I will be in Denver, it will not be as a member of any delegation, I'll be there instead, representing Big Head Press and the projects I have going with them. I'm also looking forward to seeing and visiting with a lot of old friends. And a few old enemies, as well.

Do You Believe in Liberty?
by Dr. Mary Ruwart
In just a few weeks, the Libertarian Party's national convention delegates will choose our party's 2008 presidential nominee, who will become our de facto leader and public face of the party for the next four years. Will we choose wisely? Will we choose someone who believes in liberty?

The New Lysenkoism
by A.X. Perez
Believers and non-believers in Global Warming (Capitalized just as I would Catholicism or Anglicanism) accuse each other of engaging in junk science. Guess what? They're both pikers at practicing junk science.

Radical Islam is Not at War with America
by Doug Newman
"Radical Islam" is not at war with America. It can't be. Radical Islam has no command center. As a religion it has no pope or Vatican. Politically, it has no Berlin, Tokyo or Moscow from which to dispatch terrorists on missions of death.

Candidates, Purges and Principles
by Mike Blessing
I just read your article "Time for a Purge?" and am somewhat amused at the latest from the Watergate Gang. This press release from Cory really makes me wonder what the dues of the LPUS's Sustaining Members are going for. I was under the impression that Cory was hired to run the day-to-day operations of the Libertarian Party's Watergate office. A question for Shane Cory—How does calling for MORE State action help to fufill the LP's professed mission of SHRINKING the State?

'Tis the Season for Treason
by Mike Blessing
This is my SECOND response to L. Neil Smith's article in The Libertarian Enterprise, titled "Time for a Purge?" It's also a follow-up to my own article, "Candidates, Purges and Principles."

Learn in 11 Minutes, to be Richer and Freer
by L. Neil Smith
An 11-minute version of Aaron Zelman's Take Your Money Back video is now available at www.TakeYourMoneyBack.com. It's an important new video the IRS won't want people to see, because it exposes what amounts to a criminal conspiracy between them and the United States Congress. It's a video that will make Congress tremble that their worst nightmare—a motivated and fully "awakened" public—has come true.
