My Advice Towards Liberty

My Advice Towards Liberty
I’ve already written about what I consider to be rational strategy for Libertarian-minded individuals in North Dakota. I would like to elaborate on my previous points.   The Libertarian Party of North Dakota should aim to be considered the ‘Party of Principle’, regardless of how it may be interpreted by those of opposing beliefs. Self-ownership, Private property rights, and the... Read More

Self-Ownership, Property Boundaries, and State Violence

Self-Ownership, Property Boundaries, and State Violence
Without the recognition and respect for boundaries civil cooperation is impossible and conflict is unavoidable. In order for society to achieve civil cooperation certain objective truths must be understood. There are certain laws of the universe that cannot be refuted, disproved, or conquered. If one attempts to refute the law of gravity by jumping off a cliff hoping to fly,... Read More

In a World Gone Mad

In a World Gone Mad
 “I feel like I’m taking crazy-pills” There is no avoiding the absolute lunacy of the current political environment. In the age of Trump people are showing their true colors and it isn’t encouraging. Many on the Left have openly (and proudly) become violent and encouraged violence leading all to question their commitment to “liberalism”. Many on the Right are looking... Read More

Tolerance in 2017

Tolerance in 2017
Tolerance? Going into the New Year the idea of tolerance seems to be misunderstood or ignored by a great many people. College campuses are increasingly becoming known for establishing “safe spaces”, restricting “controversial” speaking events, promoting anti-free speech protests, demonizing whites (especially heterosexual males) and the overall Infantilization of student bodies. Remember when college campuses were hosting Civil Rights marches... Read More

Fake News and Social Justice Nuclear Warriors

Fake News and Social Justice Nuclear Warriors
“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell. Enter “Fake News” In recent months there has been a major escalation in the demonization of alternative and independent news organizations. Independent organizations like Drudge, Wikileaks, Antiwar.com, LewRockwell.com, Zerohedge, Consortiumnews.com, and even the RonPaulInstitute, have been labeled “Fake News” and possibly inadvertent proponents of Russian...

I’m Glad Trump Won

I’m Glad Trump Won
Hillary didn’t win Hillary Clinton would have been perhaps the most dangerous President in American history. Her consistent track record as a war-proponent includes her involvement in the on-going U.S./Iraq war, ongoing intervention in Afghanistan, the overthrow of the Honduran and Libyan Governments, her desire to confront Russia over Syria, her demonization of President Putin and continuous comparisons of him...

After Running for State Office

After Running for State Office
I never thought I would run for political office but when nobody was offering ideas I supported, I stepped up. I got involved with the Libertarian Party of North Dakota as a concerned citizen and would later become a member of the Party Platform Writing Committee. I had been studying Libertarian philosophy for a few years so this was an... Read More

Privatize the North Dakota Public Service Commission

Privatize the North Dakota Public Service Commission
Introduction I have made my position clear that I would like to see the Public Service Commission phased out and essentially abolished. I have received much criticism (here, here, here) for what I consider to be a rational and logical position to take when considering the economic and ethical implications. The P.S.C. is incapable of determining and guiding appropriate economic signals... Read More

My Opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline

My Opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline
‘Yes’ to Property Rights, ‘No’ to Government Subsidies I oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline because the acquirement of land needed for the proposed pipeline route does not respect the property rights of all landowners involved and the corporations involved have received federal, state, and local subsidies at the expense of the taxpayer. If every property owner in the proposed route voluntarily... Read More
