Lee Wrights: Make Newtown the last town

“Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

- James Madison

Beware the person who says to you, “You don’t need a gun.” That kind of person will get you killed. Nothing proves this more than the terrible event of Friday last at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown Read more »

Source: Ruwart.com

By Dr. Mary J. Ruwart

In late February of this year, Lee Wrights, Libertarian Party presidential hopeful, put up the Million Vote March website (http://millionvotemarch.com/). The idea was simple: if voters didn’t like either of the “establishment” candidates, they were encouraged to cast a protest vote for the Libertarian Party nominee and push his vote count to a record-breaking 1,000,000 votes.

Lee Wrights: Don’t be afraid to be who you were meant to be

Source: Liberty for All (via Independent Political Report)

When I was young and just starting out in political life, I believe I went through the same terrible experience Ron Paul supporters just went through in Tampa. Part of my political awakening was learning that the views I held, the belief in individual rights and personal responsibility, had a name – libertarian. I also learned that these views weren’t always acceptable in politics. People who held such views, or dared to speak of such things as individual rights, fiscal responsibility and limited government, were very Read more »

“There is nothing wrong with a strategy to avoid the payment of taxes. The Internal Revenue Code doesn’t prevent that.” – Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist

In “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” Sally asks Charlie Brown to write a letter to Santa Claus for her.

Lee Wrights: Peace is Profitable

Source: Wrights2012.com

By R. Lee Wrights

Most discussions about the costs of war focus on two numbers, the cost in dollars and cents and the more profound and heartbreaking cost in lives. Yet even as depressing as these numbers are, the figures discussed rarely encompass the whole truth. Over many generations those in power have learned there are benefits to keeping the populace as ignorant as possible when it comes to the true costs of war. Read more »

BURNET, Texas (May 26) – When I began my quest for the Libertarian presidential nomination, my staff and I were committed to making the campaign about more than just winning the nomination. We determined that whoever was the nominee, the message of the Libertarian Party in 2012 would be “Stop All War,” and that message would be heard in all 50 states. To that end, we pledged 10 percent of all donations to insure ballot Read more »
