The Libertarian Storm begins….

The gods of liberty are conferring in the heavens as we speak. If you listen carefully, you can hear them – voices of reason wafting over a humanity for whom reason has all but been drowned out by the cries of millions of chattering class believers in their own claims for entitlement  (“Entites” ) at the expense of  our nation’s prosperity producers (“Prospertites”).

Why every Libertarian vote counts!

If you are like me, an Ontario citizen who believes that:  your taxes are too high and mis-used; government regulations are too many and mostly designed to increase government power; and that the Ontario Public Service is too big and wields too much monopoly power in their compensation demands —— if this describes your convictions about governments in general, then you have been silent for too long.

Dragon's Den for Privatizing Government Monopolies

 My wife and I have a wonderful weekend routine.  I make a "red eye" coffee for each of us on our Gaggia espresso machine, then we settle on the couch with our 2 cats in attendance and chat about all sorts of things, including politics.

 Yesterday, Cynthia and I were discussing how to reach and encourage entrepreneurs to create new and profitable business models that could address our GTA commuting and transportation problems. That's when she came up with a brilliant idea!

Is a 30% Markup on government services too much?

When you stop to analyze the fundamental role of government in modern society, it can be described in very simple terms:  to take money from productive citizens ( taxes in their many forms) and to distribute these revenues to groups of politically designated recipients.

In the world of business, we have a name for the middle man who facilitates the exchange of financial or service transactions between parties:  a  'broker' .  I know this role very well. It is the way that I have earned my living for nearly all of my career.

Personal Freedom

Personal Freedom is a personal choice decided by each individual person. You choose how much personal freedom you give yourself. When you make your own desicions under your own free will, you have personal freedom. To quote a song "If you decide not to choose, you have still made a choice". You are your own decision maker.

My letter to the Society for Quality Education

I recently received a fundraising letter from the Society for Quality Education (SQE). They do a lot of good stuff in an attempt to improve the school system. They produced a documentary available on DVD, Charter Schools: Alberta’s Best-Kept Secret, which I highly recommend as an example of what can happen when schools are allowed to compete. They are often critical of the methods used by the public schools to teach our children, which is why I support them.

We start with a reminder that December 31 is the deadline for donations to receive a refundable Political Tax Credit for 2017. "Refundable" means that you receive the credit of 75% of the first $399 donated even if you don't owe any taxes. If you haven't yet donated this year, or if you would like to top up your donation to help us with our 2018 election campaign, now is the time (see below).  

We report on the Convention held November 4,including the elections and listing of new Executive and Ethics Committee members. Allen Small provides a summary of his report to the Convention.  

Scott Marshall, our new Campaign Director, reports on the progress of our "Full Slate" campaign.  

As usual, we include a list of Libertarian meetings around the province. 

And last, but not  least, there was room for a few quotes from Thomas Jefferson.
