Let’s continue to support the liberty movement in Maine. Check out these awesome shirts the Maine delegates have put together to commemorate the duly elected delegates to the RNC in Tampa.

US Ambassador To Libya Killed In Benghazi Attack

By Hadeel Al Shalchi
BENGHAZI, Libya | Wed Sep 12, 2012

(Reuters) - The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car, a Libyan official said, as they were rushed from a consular building stormed by militants denouncing a U.S.-made film insulting the Prophet Mohammad.

Gunmen had attacked and burned the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, a center of last year's uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, late on Tuesday evening, killing one U.S. consular official. The building was evacuated.

The Libyan official said the ambassador, Christopher Stevens, was being driven from the consulate building to a safer location when gunmen opened fire.

"The American ambassador and three staff members were killed when gunmen fired rockets at them," the official in Benghazi told Reuters.

Fed Launches QE3

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The Federal Reserve, worried that improvement in the unemployment rate has stalled, announced a third, large purchase of bonds on Thursday in an effort to bring down long-term interest rates and spur growth.

The Fed said it would buy mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $40 billion per month.

The Federal Open Market Committee, which ended a two-day meeting on Thursday, said it was concerned that, without the action, “economic growth might not be strong enough to generate sustained improvement in labor market conditions.”Read text of statement.

Netanyahu To Obama on Bombing Iran: ‘Wait For What? Wait Until When?’

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is making it clear that Israel will not wait to take out Iranian nuclear facilities.

In heated comments toward the United States, the Israeli prime minister said that it’s becoming clear that diplomacy will not work with Iran.

“The world tells Israel, `Wait. There’s still time,’” Netanyahu said Tuesday, according to The Associated Press. “And I say: `Wait for what? Wait until when?’ Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.”

The Revolution Comes to NBC, Mondays at 10

http://youtu.be/JwfCRAtkYEI

Watch the full pilot on Hulu.com I haven't watched it yet. If you have or do, please let me know what you think. Some may wonder why an MSM TV show would be posted here. It is to bring to your awareness what is happening in the world. Many people here don't have TV, including me. I only stumbled upon this video by accident, but it has over 8 million views. Meaning the kinds of ideas that are discussed here daily are going mainstream.

FYI. The progress of the series and its mainstream reception is something to keep our eye on as a barometer of the sentiment of the general public.

Apparently, The Johnson vs not voting debate is as old as Libertarianism itself

I did some research into the pains the Daily Paul is having. I have taken a lot of the comments personally, although, I should not have. I made a bunch of mock acrimonious posts to try to show how people sound. I am sorry if this hurt anyone. I am trying to show people the errors they are committing by reflecting them at themselves. I was doing some research into agorism and low and behold I found Samuel Konkin's defense of agorism against Murray Rothbard. He makes a great case about not voting and how the Libertarian Party is a waste of time by historical examples, but this is his conclusion.

In conclusion, Rothbard and I continue to fight for the same things—and against the same things. Hopefully we will continue to fight in our own ways, reaching those the other missed. And most hopefully may we reduce our time and energy spent on fighting each other to free resources against the common enemy. I shall let no outstretched hand be passed up.

What If The Young Won't Work?

Suppose the youth of this nation were unwilling or unable to work. What then would happen to the country? The answer to that question should be obvious. The country would become progressively poorer.

Government, no matter its intentions, cannot create product or wealth. They only redistribute it. If fewer people are willing to work and the population remains the same, then per capita wealth necessarily goes down. The rate at which it declines is a function of many things, although the labor participation rate is among the more important.
