L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Post Election Thoughts

  By L. Neil Smith Okay, the 2016 General Election is well and truly over, and I fully intend this to be my final commentary on it. Many individuals have written to me or about me, denigrating, in various ways, my difficult decision to vote for Donald J. Trump. As I had already explained at […]

Election 2016: Who I’m Not Voting For, And Why

By Thomas L. Knapp That’s what this election is about, isn’t it?

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — YESTERDAY’S MASHED POTATOES

By L. Neil Smith  As I have said and written on many occasions, I don’t mind so much that relative newcomers to the Libertarian Party and movement insist on reinventing the wheel, as much as that they keep reinventing it _square_. Regrettably, ours is a community with absolutely no provision for recording its own history […]
