Why Jews—And Others–Should Not Vote for Hillary on Tuesday

06 Nov

Fifty years ago on a sunny Sunday morning in April, I was watching a television program (channel 7 in New York) about Passover. Although I don’t remember the specifics of the whole program, I do remember vividly a statement made by Rabbi who responded to a question from the host, “The essence of Judaism is the sanctity of the individual” (emphasis added).

When I heard these words and realized that the uniqueness of every individual human being is the core of our journey in life, it was not long after watching that program that I learned about libertarianism and how this political philosophy dovetails with Judaism. In fact, after I was the New Jersey’s Libertarian Party’s nominee for governor in 1997 I was invited by Rabbi to speak to his congregation on a Friday night. My topic that evening was in keeping with what I heard 20 years earlier, “Why Jews should be libertarians.”

My message that evening nearly 20 years ago was clear. Given the history of the Jews, government is the last institution they should trust. And the fact that Moses gave the world the Ten Commandments, two of which are the foundation of libertarianism, “Thou shalt not steal,” and “Thou shalt not kill,” Jews should be in favor of either a stateless society or very limited government in which the “government fears the people” and not the other way around.

Bill Weld…Quisling and Hillary Shill

03 Nov

The Johnson-Weld ticket is an embarrassment.  They should do what my high school teacher told my class on several occasions:  “It is better to appear dumb than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”  Pack it in boys.

Robert Wenzel scorches Peter Thiel

The self styled libertarian is anything but.


It’s war, stupid

30 Sep

“The year was 1956: the icy winds of the cold war were blowing across the political landscape. And it was a presidential election year, pitting the internationalist Republican Dwight Eisenhower against Adlai Stevenson, the darling of the Democratic party’s left wing. The “isolationist” faction of the GOP, led by Sen. Robert A. Taft, had been […]”

This would have been Ron Paul’s year

12 Jul

Timing is everything in politics.  Ron would get at least 20% of the vote in November if he were the Libertarian Party nominee.

“The last time people were this dissatisfied with presidential candidates, Ross Perot became a third-party success story. This year, however, there are new hurdles for outsiders.”

Gary Johnson is no Ron Paul

09 Jul

What were Libertarians thinking when they nominated Gary Johnson for President?

“Where are libertarians going? What is clear is where they are not going. The much-touted “libertarian moment,” as a New York Times Magazine article phrased it two years ago, never materialized. …”

ACLU: It’s time to legalize prostitution

06 Jul

If the nation’s oldest civil libertarian organization was consistent, they would be advocating more libertarian proposals. Then, the freedom/liberty revolution would have a great ally. 

“It’s time to stop sweeping consenting adult sex workers into the criminal justice system. We need models that protect their rights, their health and their safety.”
