Rp on the Drug War

↳ Posted on April 27th, 2013 by Ben Spera

100220_ron_paul_2010_lg“Has nobody noticed that the authorities can’t even keep drugs out of the prisons? How can making our entire society a prison solve the problem?” – Ron Paul, during his farewell to Congress.

As simple as this logic seems, most Americans still seem to think that forfeiting their liberties will secure their safety.

Romney Supporters’ Changed Tune

↳ Posted on September 23rd, 2012 by Ben Spera

After months of vile, hateful attacks from Romney supporters during the primary, they have turned on a dime and now expect us to come filing in behind the party’s “official” candidate. Not this guy. I’m not voting for Romney because it solves nothing. We need to fix this country, and voting for an individual only because he won’t do AS MUCH damage just seem ludicrous to me. I’m not voting for anyone who’s going to do more damage PERIOD. I’m voting with my conscience not some underhanded political scheme to drag this economical crash out as long as possible. In my opinion, I think we should just get it over with, and start rebuilding already. Read more…

My Vote is Going to Gary Johnson

↳ Posted on September 23rd, 2012 by Ben Spera

I originally discovered Ron Paul during his 2008 run, and voted for him in both primaries. Although I voted for Libertarian Bob Barr in the 2008 general election, I wasn’t very enthusiastic about him. He seemed like a former GOP insider that turned Libertarian only because he wasn’t getting the attention he wanted within his original party. This year is different.

I’ve heard Gary Johnson’s name mentioned countless times within Ron Paul circles and online forums but never actually gave him much thought. I figured he was another Paul Ryan, gave true libertarian ideology nothing more than lip service. And like the many Paul Ryans out there they tout their constitutional principles and fiscal conservatism on the campaign trail, and that’s where it stops. Gary Johnson is not another Paul Ryan. I got bored one day and just started watching some YouTube videos about Johnson and I am hooked.  Read more…

Ron Paul Has His Own Convention

↳ Posted on July 18th, 2012 by Ben Spera

It’s no secret that the GOP brass isn’t particularly fond of Congressman Paul. Even with Paul accumulating an impressive 6 states and almost 300 delegates by some counts, the GOP and Romney campaign have yet to even offer him an invitation to the Republican National Convention in Tampa. But Ron Paul doesn’t need your stupid convention because he’s having his own damn convention. Apparently it will kick off just before the GOP’s does and will be located in Tampa as well. If you want more details on Paul’s Tampa Rally check out his official announcement available on his website.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality

Posted on January 25th, 2014 by Ben Spera

14137_large_net_neutralityAs a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.

Why the Confederate Flag is Not Welcome

Posted on July 20th, 2013 by Ben Spera

NoBattleFlagsMy hatred for the confederate flag has nothing to do with slavery. I understand the south’s secession was much more complicated than that, but that doesn’t change the reverent disdain I hold for the rebel flag. In my eyes the confederate flag is not only treasonous, but a representation of people who chose to take the easy way of quitting and leaving, rather than staying and trying to fix something they believed in. Some people may think it’s acceptable to just abandon one flag for another when things don’t go their way. That’s bullshit. My family has invested far too much blood and sweat into Old Glory to just walk away from her. Read more…
