L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — WHAT WENT WRONG WITH THE CRUZ CAMPAIGN

By L. Neil Smith When I was 15 years old, in the 10th grade, I knew a young lady my age I’ll call Sue. Sue was a tall, very cool, relatively sophisticated number, very attractive with long eyelashes,long, long legs, olive skin, brown eyes that were pools a guy could fall into and drown in, […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — WHY THE LEFT-WING SEEMS INSANE (MOSTLY BECAUSE THEY ARE)

By L. Neil Smith Every single theory, every single notion ever conceived and cherished by the men and women we call liberals — the socialsts who refer to themselves as “Progressives” — and every single program ever derived from them over more than a century, has proven to be wrong-headed, futile, and ultimately destructive to […]

The End of the Bill of Rights is at Our Fingertips

By Thomas L. Knapp I recently got my first “smart phone” (I’ve been a late adopter in that particular area of technology). One of the first things I noticed about it was that I could use my fingerprint, rather than a pesky pass code, to unlock it. Much more convenient, isn’t it? A password can […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — GOTCHA!

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — GOTCHA!

By L. Neil Smith  I have always been extremely interested in 16th century England, a period when Europe was engaged in a great bloody struggle to become Western Civilization, the era of William Shakespeare and Elizabeth I, a time when praying from the wrong book (the one with the semicolon on Page 87, instead of […]

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 […]

The Race is On: Uber versus the Real Sharing Economy

.   By Joel Schlosberg A new kind of ride has arrived just in time. Early in February, hundreds of Uber drivers converged on the company’s office in Long Island City, Queens to object to sweeping fare reductions. Drivers must charge 15 percent less — while still paying Uber the same percentage, plus the ongoing […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE: The Year Ahead

By L. Neil Smith Next month, October, 2015, _The Libertarian Enterprise_ will begin its twentieth year of publication. This is not something I can say I ever foresaw. I founded _TLE_ specifically to give more publicity to a fellow writer who I felt deserved it. I still recall as if it were yesterday the founding […]

And Then There Were 16: Perry Drops Out

And Then There Were 16: Perry Drops Out

  . By Thomas L. Knapp I am neither a Republican nor a Rick Perry fan. Nonetheless I find Perry’s decision to drop out of the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination contest disheartening. Here’s why: Like Perry or not, agree with him on the issues or not, he was arguably the single most experienced political executive […]

Election 2016: Can John McAfee Change The Game?

. . By Thomas L. Knapp The 2016 presidential election cycle got a lot more interesting on September 8 when John McAfee announced his candidacy under the banner of a newly formed “Cyber Party.” McAfee, whose eponymous computer security software made him a multi-millionaire, sports a long record of public eccentricity that I need not […]

More Sequestration: The Best Bad Thing, For Now

    By Thomas L. Knapp If American politicians lived in the real world, US president Barack Obama would propose and Congress would pass a balanced budget for the federal government. But American politicians don’t live in the real world. Since World War II they’ve inhabited a Utopian fantasy in which the federal government has […]
