With Abraham Lincoln's birthday just passed on February 12th the media was replete with praise for him. Unfortunately, this whitewashed view of him is misguided. Rather than being the honest and resolute knight in shining armor that he is made out to be, on closer inspection he turns out to be one of the worst politicians Illinois has produced.

The recent selection of Bob Barr as the presidential nominee by the Libertarian Party (LP) at its convention in Denver has caused much controversy. Most moderates are happy, most radicals are upset, some to the point of leaving the party. Before addressing the future of the LP let's take a look at some of the troubling aspects of Mr. Barr's conservatism.

The incident with a Seattle Police Officer punching a 17-year-old woman in the face has caused much controversy. I commend the young women involved for their courage in standing up to legal plunder.

Last Saturday the weekly demonstrations for and against the wars in West Chester, PA were joined by some special visitors.

The other visitor was local conservative talk show host, and advocate of torture, Dom Giordano. He engages Barbara in a lively debate on the subject of torture and Guantanamo.

MARCH AGAINST MAINSTREAM MEDIA is more than just a protest. It is an attack against the credibility of the mainstream media in an attempt to steer its viewers away from its lies and towards alternative media sources.

Many times liberty activists handing out information for the Fully Informed Jury Association have been told that they can't film on federal property by the US Marshals and other law enforcement officers at the US District courthouse in lower Manhattan, New York City. Things sure are different when they want the public to see a juicy criminal coming or going.

The wars abroad are less popular than ever. Now is the time to give people that are not on the left in their thinking a place to go to engage in activism for peace. Hopefully, Focus on Peace will fulfill that vital role.

The legislation being hammered out in our imperial capital to bail out financial institutions contains a decidedly dictatorial twist.

The Focus on Peace trip to New York City for The Seventh Annual Brooklyn Peace Fair 2011 was a great success. From our table we got a large number of fliers and other literature out. Our message was well received by most attendees and fellow exhibitors. I was interviewed on camera twice.

Oath Keepers may mean well, but they don't understand freedom. One doesn't advance liberty by supporting the government's wars.

(25 comments) SHARE Friday, July 25, 2008 Debunking "The false ideology that caused our financial failure"
In his article, "The false ideology that caused our financial failure", Ed Martin attempts to blame our present economic problems on the nonexistent free market. Ignoring the fact that the problems were caused by government interference in the economy, a fact that can't be stressed enough. Markets can recover from this interference if left alone.

SHARE Friday, January 30, 2009 Recovery Depends on Investment and Capital Accumulation
Some of the feedback I've received on the article "An Economy on Life Support Is Not Recovering" shows a fundamental misunderstanding my critics have about the arguments presented there. In retrospect I see that a more detailed explanation is needed.

SHARE Thursday, August 5, 2010 FIJA Activist Julian Heicklen Busted Again in NY, 8/4/2010
Julian Heicklen started handing out the Fully Informed Jury Association pamphlets. I even started to speculate that maybe they were done trying to arrest Julian. No such luck. One of the officers, as he walked past me while the camera was off, said, "get the camera rolling things are about to start".

Former Sen. Mike Gravel, a contender for the Libertarian party presidential nomination, is a supporter of the National Initiative for Democracy. This legislation would give the people the power to make laws, bypassing congress. While advocated, no doubt, with the best of intentions this is precisely the prescription for dictatorship that the Founders warned us against.
