“Vortex” is Back”

In Libertarian, Libertarian Party-US, Media, People in the news, Politics, Presidential Candidates on November 11, 2008 at 9:49 am

I would like to apologize for going on hiatus when my work was needed the most.  I have had a number of personal issues that required my time.  I also had the misfortune of having my computer break down at the most inopportune time.

The “Vortex of Freedom” Radio Show will be returning this Saturday at its new temporary time – 10:00PM Eastern.  I had an impromptu show last night on BlogTalk radio.

 

The 2008 Elections – Pardon Me While I Puke

I will give my insight to the 2008 elections and offer hard evidence into why America was duped once again by both parties and the corporate media.

Saturday 10PM Eastern  Call-in number: 347-215-7969

Allen Buckley campaign “down and dirty” radio ads focus on incumbent Saxby Chambliss

In Libertarian Party-US, Media, Politics, Press Release on October 7, 2008 at 5:34 pm
Send this porker packing, if you hated the farm/welfare bill you can’t like this hog.

US Senator Saxby Chambliss is by far one of the worst Republican Senators in the history of the Republic. He has never met a lobbyist he did not like, and has voted in “lock-step” with the current administration. Bloated defense & farm bills and a total disrespect for the Constitution is what this crotchety old Republican is all about.    

OUR ATTACK ADS ARE WORKING !!! ( and funny )
 
Because independents, fiscally conservative republicans, and
 Ron Paul types can’t stand this guy !

Progress: Libertarian U.S. Senate Candidate Allen Buckley initially polled 3%. Later, he polled 4%. A later poll (an independent poll) had him at 8%.

Help us run more ads on AM talk radio in Republican Areas !

Listen to the ads and judge for yourself.  We are down and dirty now…… but we vow to sink even further into the gutter if that’s what it takes to oust a porker!

Go ahead and google… “Imperial Sugar Plant Explosion”… now ask yourself, “who collects from big sugar?” 

You see where we our headed, help us change history, listen to the ads.

We need your support to air “the dirtiest for last”

LP starts radio campaign

In Libertarian Party-US, Media, Politics, Press Release on October 7, 2008 at 5:29 pm

Our First Radio Ad

posted by Andrew Davis on Oct 06, 2008

Dear Libertarian Supporter,

Last week, we asked you for ideas on radio ads for the Libertarian Party during the 2008 presidential election. 

We had a massive response with really terrific ideas. 

Please check out the final cut of a radio ad that will be playing across the country this month.

Because of the success that we expect, with so many Americans angry with Republicans and Democrats, we want to expand our campaign with more ads.

We are already committed to 2000 spots per week over the next 29 days—but hope to do many, many more with your help.

Please help us sponsor ads at $1 per spot.  Each dollar will purchase approximately one radio spot, so we’re asking everybody to help sponsor at least 50 spots!

Your $50 will go towards helping spread the message of liberty through our national ad campaign.  If you feel you can donate more, please consider donations of $100, $1,000 or whatever you can afford!

You gracious donations will help all Libertarians running for office, and help make 2008 the best year in the Libertarian Party’s history!

Thank you again for all that you do for liberty in this country. 

Live Free,

Andrew Davis
Director of Communications
Libertarian Party

Are you ready to be the voice of liberty for the Libertarian Party?

In Libertarian, Libertarian Party-US, Media, Politics on October 1, 2008 at 1:10 pm

From an LPHQ email:

Are you ready to be the voice of liberty for the Libertarian Party?

If so, you just may have your chance.

The election is 36 days around the corner, and the LP is gearing up for our first radio ads of the season, and we’re looking for you, the loyal supporter, for ideas.

Please submit your best script, or your own commercial, to contest@lp.org. Entries are to be 25 seconds long, and we’ll put the “Approved By” in it.

For ideas, listen to the Barr campaign’s radio advertisement here.

The deadline for submission is Oct. 3, and the winner will be notified within a week of the contest’s close. The top advertisement will be used in radio ads across the country.

So, put on your “creative caps,” and let us truly hear the “message of liberty!”

Bob Barr’s contribution top $1 million

In Libertarian, Libertarian Party-US, Politics on September 26, 2008 at 9:17 pm

The contribution countdown ticker at BobBarr2008.com has topped $1 million for the first time.

This caps off what deputy campaign manager Shane Cory describes as a wild week

Earlier this week, we received word that our case in Texas — where both John McCain and Barack Obama failed to certify their place on the ballot by the deadline — was denied.

The Texas Supreme Court denied it without comment. The order simply read, “The following petition for Writ of Mandamus is denied.”

The court did not even bother to make an argument as to why it’s acceptable for the two major parties to ignore the law.

If that’s not evidence of a double standard, I’m not sure what is.

Given our limited financial resources and limited time, we cannot appeal the decision at this time.

But here’s some great news!

Earlier this week, we won our substitution case in Massachusetts and will be on the ballot in the Bay State.

The following day, word came out of Baton Rouge that we won our case in Louisiana and will be on the ballot there as well!

We’re now on the ballot in 46 states and are awaiting word and action in Maine, Connecticut and Oklahoma.

Cory goes on to describe the future plans of the campaign:

Today, we’re kicking off our radio campaign in targeted states! Click here to listen to the first ad.

Next week, we begin our national television campaign.

We’re getting a heck of a deal on our radio spots and paying about $2 per spot.

Barr has recently published pieces asking to be included in the bailout discussions, as well as an op-ed in USA today asking to be included in the debates. He has called on the bailout to be rejected and offered to take McCain’s place in a debate with Obama.

If Obama does not accept, Barr will appear tonight in a live “counter-debate” at Reason magazine:

Please join reason, either in person or online, for a live counter-debate on Friday, Sept. 26, with Libertarian Party nominee Bob Barr, who will respond to John McCain, Barack Obama and moderator Jim Lehrer in real time. We will be live-blogging Barr’s responses at Hit & Run, and videotaping the whole proceedings, which will include a brief post-debate Q&A with reason staffers, bloggers, and other interested parties. The fun begins at 8:00 PM, the debate starts at 9:00 sharp, and the drinks will be provided by the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States. In a year rich with libertarian politics, the only place you’ll hear a candidate talking libertarian ideas will be in reason’s Washington headquarters.

What: Bob Barr debates the presidential debaters

When: Friday, September 26, 8:00 PM to 10:30 PM

Where: Reason HQ, 1747 Connecticut Avenue NW (near S Street)

RSVPs: A must. Send e-mail to events@reason.com, or call 310.391.2245.

First Episode of “Last Free Voice Live”

In Christine Smith, Entertainment, George Phillies, Libertarian, Libertarian Party-US, Libertarian Politics, Media, Mike Jingozian, Politics, Presidential Candidates, Steve Kubby, War, Wayne Allen Root on May 4, 2008 at 2:15 am

The first (test) episode of Last Free Voice Live is now available online. It’s 30 minutes long, and it’s just me jabbering about our new website, my opinions on the LP Presidential candidates and the resignation of Shane Corey, among other things including the fact that I felt like I had the Ebola Virus while recording it, LOL.  I’m happy to say It went well, with no major technical glitches.  I just winged the entire thing and didn’t bother to use my “interview voice”, since it was only a test episode to make sure the blogtalk account works.

Yeah, I probably should have used my interview voice, since I do sometimes talk rather fast in “real life”, but I felt like reconstituted hell and just wanted to get the test episode done so I could crash on the sofa again, LOL.

Now that I have a pretty good feel for how it works, and have confidence that it will work reliably, I’ll start scheduling real shows with predetermined schedules, specific topics and interesting guests; of course, regular episodes will be longer than 30 minutes.  I will post a description of each episode (including date and time) right here on the blog, as well as on our blogtalk page.  If you have a blogtalk account of your own (you don’t have to do shows to have an account, that’s an additional process) make sure to add LFV Live to your “friends” list.  Also, with an account you can subscribe to the episodes, and even schedule email or text message reminders, so I would suggest we all get one.

We were discussing in another thread what days and times are best for people to listen in (since there will be a call-in opportunity as well, so listeners can ask questions of our guests).  I’d still like to have some input on that issue from everyone, so we can come up with a regular day and time each week for the main “Last Free Voice Live” show.

In addition to the main show (which will not necessarily always be hosted by me, since I am open to other contributors taking their shot at hosting it as well), each of the LFV contributors can host their own LFV Live episodes at other times during the week; you can discuss pretty much whatever you want, content is up to you and all you need to do is contact me so I can set it up for you.  Or, if you’d prefer to be a guest (or can recommend a good guest), by all means, let me know.  🙂

On May 3rd, I will be conducting an interview with J.Skyler McKinley for my Blog Talk Radio Show, “Live From Court Street”. Skyler is the National Press Secretary for the Mike Gravel for President Campaign. Elfninosmom conducted a great interview with Mike Gravel himself a few weeks ago here at Last Free Voice, where we learned a lot about the latest libertarian convert.

Now that a few weeks have passed, I wanted to find out what direction the campaign is heading as we inch closer to Denver. Will Bob Barr’s eventual “official” announcement cause any concern for the Gravel team? Has Mike faced any hostility from libertarians who have spent years pouring their hearts and souls into the cause of freedom, while on the campaign trail? Does the Senator have plans to remain active with the party should he fail to gain the nomination? I know these are questions I would like to see answered. How about you, the readers? Is there a question you would like the National Press Secretary to answer?

If you have any questions, please leave a comment. I’ll select a few. Since this is a live show, you can also call in and ask your question directly. The show begins at 7:30pm Eastern on May 3rd and the interview with Skyler will be at 8pm. If you would like to interact during the segment, you may do so at 646-200-0234.

Nolan Chart chooses Jesse Ventura as Ron Paul’s successor

In Barack Obama, Candidate Endorsement, Celebrities, Libertarian, Libertarian Party-US, Media, Medical Marijuana, Politics, Republican on March 13, 2008 at 12:46 am

Could Jesse Ventura win the White House as a Libertarian nominee? I’d say no way, but Jeff Wrobel at Nolan Chart believes he can.

In the spirit of Dr. Paul’s request, it is time to choose his successor. It’s time to choose a candidate who can avoid the pitfalls of the Ron Paul candidacy. As discussed in a previous NolanChart article, Paul’s followers should sponsor a moderate libertarian celebrity for president. In the following mathematical model, I will prove that if Paul’s supporters place Jesse Ventura on the ballot, he will be the next president of the United States.

First: an introduction for those unfamiliar with Jesse Ventura. He’s 56 years old and is a former Navy Seal. He became famous as Jesse “The Body” Ventura in the World Wrestling Federation. He used his success there to become an actor. His most famous role was as a member of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s crack commando team in the movie Predator, where he uttered his most memorable line: “I ain’t got time to bleed.” In 1998 he ran (as Jesse “The Mind” Ventura) against very well-known candidates, Republican Norm Coleman and Democrat Hubert Humphrey III, for governor of Minnesota — and Ventura won!

Jesse Ventura could be placed at about the center of the Libertarian quadrant of the Nolan Chart. He describes himself as “fiscally conservative and socially liberal”. Like most libertarians he supports a smaller government in general, lower taxes, gay rights, medicinal marijuana, instant-runoff voting, opposes helmet and seatbelt laws, opposes the use of the National Guard overseas, and opposed the teachers union. In a few areas he disagrees with pure libertarians; for instance, he approves of well-funded government-run lower education and government-run public transportation.

Ventura can avoid most of the troubles that befell Ron Paul. First, Ventura is taken somewhat seriously by the media since he has actually served in a high public executive office (as both a mayor and governor) and has considerable media experience with his own radio and TV talk shows. Second, and most importantly, he is not as radical a libertarian as Ron Paul, so he’ll appeal more to liberals, centrists, and conservatives. Third, he is not nearly as old as Ron Paul, has an imposing 6′ 4″ frame, and (no disrespect to the very honorable Dr. Paul) has a fair deal of charisma.

You can read the entire article, including his mathematical predictions, here.
