A Frolic in Fort Collins
(The Feature Article)

Marx-Sanders Ticket
Marx-Sanders Ticket
From Western Rifle Shooters

A violent revolution is certainly a difficult thing
to control, a limited strategy for change, and is
unlikely to bring about overall good results.

In 7 parts.

A Frolic in Fort Collins
by L. Neil Smith
Not sharing the late Isaac Asimov's basically Progressive-era statistical beliefs concerning human behavior in the aggregate—multiplying variables does not make them easier to sort out—I draw absolutely no conclusions whatever from yesterday's events in Iowa.

A very good and highly innovative alternative to Facebook already exits
by A happy diaspora* user
Diaspora (currently styled diaspora*) is a nonprofit, user-owned, distributed social network that is based upon the free Diaspora software. Diaspora consists of a group of independently owned nodes (called pods) which interoperate to form the network. As of March 2014, there are more than 1 million Diaspora accounts.

The Ory-gun Show & Tell
a work of fiction by Paul Bonneau
Old John sat in his favorite chair, reading about the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua. The book explained that when the young kids decided to do some revolutionary stuff in the towns, they would all cover their faces with bandanas like the outlaws in an old American western, so the tyrant Somoza's thugs could not identify them for reprisals. He put the book in his lap and mumbled, "Hmmm..." When he woke up the next morning, getting stiffly out of the chair, he knew what he was going to do.

Being Played
by Jim Davidson
Suppose you are one of the billionaire puppet masters. You've known since 2008 that the system is unsustainable. You know that the central bank manipulations and "quantitative easing" have all been stop-gap measures meant to extend the huge transfer of wealth to the top 0.1% of people. You know that negative interest rates and zero interest rate policies cannot help and almost certainly hurt the economies of the countries where they are being used. You know that tens of millions of American, tens of millions of Europeans, and billions of people worldwide are out of work, and angry. You know that your wars have been very profitable for you and very harmful to many others. People everywhere are very angry and justifiably want blood. The blood they really want is yours.

A Golden Oldie
by L. Neil Smith
Before I start this, I want to make one thing clear. The great Ayn Rand was not without her foibles. She used to entertain fleeting enthusiasms, it says here, which she attempted to integrate into her philosophical and political machinery, so that if you didn't like the tap-dancer of the month, say, you were somehow low and unworthy, a second-hander. I'm writing this simply to share something I've run across recently that I think is nifty. If you disagree, it's okay with me.


"Remember Pearl..." no, wait, that's December 7th. Sorry I get confused sometimes. Nothing to worry about, move along.

I don't know anything about these folks, but at least they talk a good line:

We have just produced a new video for the LPWA and LPCO featuring the voice of 1988 Libertarian Presidential candidate Ron Paul sponsored by our supporters. Here are the links below:

Start packing, Free Staters, it is time to move!

At 11AM this morning, Free State Project president Carla Gericke announced the FSP had reached its goal of recruiting 20,000 participants. Here is her speech from this morning's press conference held at the Radisson Hotel in the Queen City.

Five years ago, when I became president of the Free State Project after having organized two Porcupine Freedom Festivals, aka PorcFest, now one of the largest liberty gatherings in the world, the signer counter stood at nearly 11,000.

I calculated that all things being equal, we would Trigger the Move in 2018, and with 5 years for signers to move, it would be 2023--and I would be in my fifties!--before I would see the full effects of our historic mass migration movement.
