"Republicans in Congress doubled the national debt in a span of eight years. Shame on us," he said. "The reality is we are in a political ditch in part for those errors."

From Libertarian Party of Arapahoe County, Colorado reports:
Libertarian activist and former candidate for Colorado House district 42 Jim Frye spoke with Acting City Clerk for Aurora, Steve Wasieck, about an upcoming Aurora City Council meeting regarding a proposed new tax for libraries.
They will package up all the responses and forward all of them to each council member.
Steve said if they get a very large response, they may only forward the number of yes and no comments.
Steve also said everyone is welcome to show up at the council meeting.
After you sign in to speak, you would be given 3 minutes to read your opinion piece.
You can do this regardless if you sent in a previous written opinion or not.
Obviously, I urge each and every one of you to email your opposition to this tax increase.
I also urge each of you to forward this message to anyone in Aurora that you know would also oppose having their taxes raised.
Time is of the essence... write your letter of opposition today!

Her last question in the clip: "is that what we've come to?" The answer is "yes."
This is what happens when the quality of the product you sell is less important than the quality of the influence you sell.

If there's an argument for deterrence, this is it — the freebie murder, once explained to me by a prosecutor, of killing someone who might put you in jail for the rest of your life. Without the death penalty, what's there to deter you — two life sentences?
Once it escalated into a murder one beef for all of 'em after they killed the first two guards, they didn't hesitate. Pop guard number three because... what difference does it make? Why leave a living witness?

"... these banks know that the federal government will bail them out, if necessary, no matter what they do, no matter how many stupid investments they make, or how much they pay their executives, traders and shareholders, or how many gold-plated toilets they install. They get trillions worth of government insurance for nothing."
What's the common theme? The two party duopoly rewards its own. They take taxpayer money and give it to their cronies. The cronies may be slightly different, but it doesn't matter to us poor vassals. The effect is the same.
Reject the status quo. Join the Libertarian Party. Join the revolution.
