Libertarian Party of Cameron County


Do you value your freedom?

As we watch the things our government is doing “for our benefit “ I cannot help but think that you are as concerned as I am.
It seems that every day the current pack of rulers at all levels of the government – starting at the Board of Education and going all the way to Washington- continue to find things that most of the populace needs that they need more of our taxes to pay for.
We feel it first at home when our property taxes continue to rise due to the higher values “in a recession” and the leaders still plead poverty. We also hear daily about the major changes in how the federal government wants to manage even more details of our daily life.
They already control what we think and say by dictating what is taught in schools and enforced by school aid and education grants.
Lately they have taken over our banks, the largest insurance company in the country and now they want to control another sixth of the economy – our health care.
This would provide the opportunity to even decide who can live and for how long by limiting care to the old, smokers, drinkers, the infirm or the old. Some of these things are being done already in places with socialized health care.
We thought we were voting for a change in the last election but we got much more of the same intrusive controlling government than before.
We need real change.
The Libertarians are the only ones that can bring real change by reducing government and its effect in our daily life. Less impact on our life and a smaller government will bring about less taxes, more business activity and more real opportunity.
We Libertarians are having a meeting to find new candidates for office to evict those who have been taking our choices and freedoms away.

Join us at Denny's at 6131 Paredes Line Rd
on September 20, 2009 from 2p - 5p on

Our State Chairman and State Executive Director will join us. So come and meet your local Libertarians and help our State leaders understand what makes the valley tick and help the community by running for office or helping a neighbor!

Clearly, no one party has exclusive rights to distort the truth.

"They already control what we think and say by dictating what is taught in schools" So, apparently the Libertarian Party thinks we all say and think only what we were taught in school and believes that the government control our thoughts. I saw on the Twilight Zone that if you wear aluminium foil on your head it will help deflect their thought rays.

"Lately they have taken over our banks" No, they took over some banks. They may have got yours but they didn't get mine. Of course, this probably would not have happened if appropriete government regulation had been enforced. I guess you are opposed to federal insurance of depositor's assets, too.

"This would provide the opportunity to even decide who can live and for how long by limiting care to the old, smokers, drinkers, the infirm or the old" A lie! Telling part of the truth is often as bad as telling none of the truth.

Sure, there is much that government does wrong but there is a lot it does right. In fact. there is enough it does wrong that there is no need to distort or mislead when discussing it.

I love this - "Telling part of the truth is often as bad as telling none of the truth."

And understand, I am not endorsing any political party = it is just about information.

I always say if the government has it all wrong then lets get rid of the police, fire, FBI, CIA, NSA, and military. Let's see who all these anti-government people feel then.

Unless a person has resources, children must go to public schools where the content of texts and manner of education are specified or mandated by the federal government and must be followed in order to get federal money. Read
The rural public school I went to refused federal public assistance (levels were highest in our state) but most State and local education do or say whatever it takes to get the most federal money whether or not it results in better education.
Parents either will not act - or don't have input as to texts or what and how information is taught, hence young folks are taught what to think not how to think.
When I was judging ready writing UIL competitions I noted a decline in quality in the same students from middle to high schools.
If the Federal govt must be included in the system at all the parents should be able to direct what school gets the money and thereby how education should work.
If intrested read my article on the issue http://www.the-drews.com/2006/02/03/are-we-stupid-in-america/ the issue needs debate and more scrutany. My perspective is based on less government causes less trouble.
