Does anyone know a serious pro-liberty CIVIL attorney?

Hi All,

This is a serious inquiry. Please do not respond and just throw out names of attorneys you have heard about. I appreciate hearing about civil pro-liberty attorneys whom you have PERSONAL EXPERIENCE with.

Please civil attorneys only. This is not about a criminal issue, DUI, arrest or anything involving government authorities.

Thank you!

Dear DP Members: I am a student doing Research on Barry Goldwater Sr. Help?

Hello DP! I am a high school student right now researching on the impact of Barry Goldwater Sr., his nomination in 1964 and how it changed the Republican Party ideologically.

Now, after following the 2012 Ron Paul campaign, I have heard messages of him being comparable to Barry Goldwater. Of course, Ron Paul, being my hero, led me to choose Barry Goldwater as something to research on, his impact on American history would've made an interesting topic, I thought.

So the topic at hand is: Did Barry Goldwater's nomination change the Republican Party ideologically?

I found one good link at the following:

The article from Heritage Foundation gave me a few interesting points: The Republican party, before Barry's nomination, was apparently most an Eastern Party, with men like Nelson Rockefeller(I know some of you have things against that family, but please provide backup if you do) being close to nominated, and the general reaction of Barry Goldwater's nomination was one of shock.

What is a Libertarian leader?

Believe it or not, I am a long time member but never have felt compelled to join a side. Im not a tried and tested, card carrying, Libertarian. In the past year or so, I have felt more compelled to identify as a little L 'libertarian'.

Here are my main beefs. Libertarians are like pop fans. Its like people trying to out 'cool' each other. I don't personally give a shit if you are more 'libertarian' or 'LIBERTARIAN' than me. Honestly.

May I ask for Help with some Likes, Tweets, Instagram, Plus signs or Pins, please?

As a libertarian, I believe we should be treated as individuals and not our special class attributes. So the slogan I came up with is "RACISM. BANNED. FOR. LIFE." kind of a take off on Donald Sterling being banned for life.

You can see the design here:

I'm a bit embarrassed that I don't know how to promote this, but I just designed a teeshirt, based on all the racial hatred coming out lately.

May I ask for Help with some Likes, Tweets, Instagram or Pins, please?

And would you be willing to give this post some Plus signs so that others may see it?

Should I apply for this...

So let me preface by saying I've done my work for the Republican Party, but mostly for Ron Paul or Liberty. I'm done now. Still registered for the time being because I enjoyed participating in the caucus and meeting my neighbors.

However, this is my schtick- I'm a cannabis activist. This is really how I became exposed to libertarianism and smaller government principles. I made a hard right when I found Harry Browne, and then Ron Paul. So my question is would you do this:

Cops shooting Dogs in Texas...

.. might want to think twice before pulling the trigger.

DP - I pose the question: is deadly force justified against an officer who just shot your dog? What about felony cruelty to animals charges?

A recent court ruling reaffirms that pets are property in Texas.

I refer you to Texas Penal Code § 9.42. Subsection (3):

§ 9.42. DEADLY FORCE TO PROTECT PROPERTY. A person is justified in using deadly force against another to protect land or tangible, movable property:

(3) he reasonably believes that:

(A) the land or property cannot be protected or recovered by any other means; or
(B) the use of force other than deadly force to protect or recover the land or property would expose the actor or another to a substantial risk of death or serious bodily injury.

"Obama, your foreign policy has killed more little girls than Boko Haram ever could"

Okay, I don't know why I do this, but I made the following statement on Facebook:

"Obama, your foreign policy has killed more little girls than Boko Haram ever could"

Of course, this has caused backlash from people. Most in particular, the following statement was made to contradict mine:

Urgent! Protect Our Internet Help Requested Today!

Hello DPers,

Does anyone recall a few months ago the DP joined several other websites in a letter/phone drive to stop something? Internet Censorship? Or one of these?:

I can't recall. :(

Well, I think openmedia was one of the partners and I signed up for their emails.

This is the second time in a few weeks I was sent a notification on something from them and I haven't seen any postings about it on the DP, which is a surprise. They're requesting the same joint efforts as last time.

It sounds like something we'd be interested in.
