“Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand.”—T.D. Melrose

Exactly How Stupid Do You Have To Be?
(The Feature Article)

The Truth About Murder Rates

It’s time now for every individualist in America
…to declare war on domestic socialism.
It sure as hell has declared war on you.

Exactly How Stupid Do You Have To Be?
by L. Neil Smith
Way down south in Venezuela, they’ve eaten their cats and dogs—and the animals in the zoo. In North Korea, I’ve heard they’re eating one another. And in Sweden (as in much of Europe) hostile barbarian savages are eating Western Civilization alive. California is eating itself.

Closets and Noses
by Sarah A. Hoyt
Recently, in a group I belong to (mostly for the purpose of raising my blood pressure) someone wished that all “deviants” would be forced “back into the closet.” Um…

Is it Broken?
by A.X. Perez
Back in 1981 I did the crummiest thing I've done in my entire life. My wife was in labor so I had to leave my 3 year old daughter and 12 year old sister in law at home alone. It was dark, sleeting, and around freezing There was an illegal alien kid sleeping under a tarp on my porch. I chased him off claiming it was time for the Border Patrol to patrol the area so that he would move on.

Disrupting Television
by Jim Davidson
Beginning in November 2017, I was asked by one of the legends of the freedom movement, Melinda Pillsbury-Foster, to join in a series of conference calls about a set of really ground-breaking projects that address homelessness, the financial crisis of 2007-present, risks attending polluting industries, and safe and environmentally sound solutions to real-world problems in building materials, insect control, and re-building after earthquakes, tornadoes, and wildfires.

#Walkaway: The Libertarian Party
by L. Neil Smith
I joined the newly-formed Libertarian Party in Denver, in 1972, the first full year it existed. I got to know its principal founder, David F. Nolan, reasonably well. I stood out in the driving rain and in boiling heat at public places, collecting ballot-petition signatures. I gave speeches and appeared on radio shows many times. I served on the National Platform Committee twice, the Colorado State Platform Committee on several occasions, and ran for public office as a Libertarian Party candidate twice.
