Welcome Home!

We’re born to be free to live our lives as we choose so long as we do not harm others. That’s what the Libertarian Party believes. We’re glad you found us here (in Michigan) where we have an exciting group of people who want to help you help us take charge of our lives, and put government in its proper place.

“The Year of the Disgruntled Voter”
by Jason Brandenburg

ScottyHomeA ‘100 year sweep’, ‘Republican landslide’, ‘Dems may never recover’. While the Republican tidal wave is significant, let’s not forget this recent election unfolded with the backdrop of historically low opinion polls of all sides at all levels. Before Republicans become too smug in their 2014 victory, they would be wise to remember they are one messianic snake oil salesman away from becoming irrelevant (see 2008).

Every two years both major parties do an excellent job of turning literally one half of America against the other. In 2016 the spin machines spew forth all kinds of nasty stuff yet again, much of it true. Years of ugly rhetoric from all forms of media has left the modern voter going to the polls, not to vote FOR something, but rather voting against the party they believe to be the “bad guys”. Every four to eight years one side manages to win enough seats to push back on the other and stakes are raised yet again… full column here.

End of the Two-Party System?

It’s with some reservation that I, Webmaster Brian, post the ‘Adolph Hitler’ video dubbed by our own Steve Mace to convey the message that the Two Party System—like the demise of our premier A-List 20th century dictator—is on the ropes. But I, Webmaster Brian, think it’s absolutely brilliant… and devastating. Let me know what you think… using Reply box below.

Advisory: some language is, well, PG-85. If you’re over 85, you may consider it unduly harsh and profane. Though my guess is ol’ Adolph actually used a little profanity here and there and it’s certainly how the higher echelons of power in Lansing do business and lament their approaching end of days. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4A3XuH8rhg&feature=share

    Congratulations to the new Board members!

    I am the current “caretaker” of our Statue of Liberty. If ANYONE has any information regarding the history of this statue, PLEASE send me an email! All I know is that she was a donation to LPWM from LPSWM. If anyone knows WHO made her, or WHEN she was made, (or any other info), PLEASE let me know. Many people asked me questions about her at the Convention, which I was unable to answer. I would like to write up a “history” of “the Lady”, and perhaps make a sign to display next to her when she’s out in public. While she looks good for her age, I’m hoping to get her “cleaned up” a bit, and fit her with a new torch. I’m also hoping to get her back out on public display more often. (We really need a trailer!)

    If anyone has any info for me, my email is:

    Thank you for any help.

    I would like to thank all who attended the Liberty Fest 2014 dinner and to those who wanted too but could not, your presences and well wishes were felt throughout the hall. I, Gregory, was in charge of finding a trophy shop, making sure that all was in order pertaining to the trophies. I blew it when it came to one of the winner’s first name. It was missed spelled, I did not do my job correctly. It will be corrected. The winner with good humor, took it all in stride. He accepted my apology on behalf of myself and the Libertarian Party’s Wayne County chapter (we hosted the event). Mr. Davidsons, thanks for understanding and your humbling good natured response. God Bless.
