Garry Reed: Another Memorial Day, another big lie from government

May 26, 2013

Every year during Memorial Day weekend the people who run our government repeat the same glowing stories about the glories of war and the heroes who “fight for our freedoms” even though it’s difficult to find wars in America’s history that were really about fighting for our freedoms rather than fighting for conquest.

The greatest threat to our freedoms is, in fact, the very people who run this country.

Every year, in the hopes of reminding people what war and freedom are actually all about in the real world Dallas Libertarian Examiner refers its readers to this article, first published in 2011.

Memorial Day: What we should remember but don’t

Dallas Freelance photographer Roger Young sent this Memorial Day video link to the Dallas Libertarian Examiner along with this simple note:

“Back in 2005, LewRockwell.com published an essay of mine about Memorial Day called ‘Remember.’ I just completed a slideshow based around that essay and thought you might like to view it.”
The original essay was published by Strike the Root and Lew Rockwell.

23 Libertarian Columnists Launch Libertarian Party News Outlet

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Mar. 14, 2013 – WASHINGTON, D.C. — 23 libertarian columnists launch Libertarian Party News outlet

A coalition of libertarian news reporters announced the launch of America’s newest independent political news outlet – Libertarian Party News. Twenty-three experienced and established columnists, all self-proclaimed libertarians, have come together to help level the playing field for Libertarian candidates and to promote the cause of liberty. Independent and opposition party candidates often complain of unfair news coverage or no coverage at all. Libertarian Party News intends to change that.

“Most independent and third party candidates are portrayed in the corporate media as aliens with five arms and three heads, if they’re covered at all,” explained Libertarian Party News founder and editor Mark Wachtler, “But then look at where the news is coming from – for-profit, multi-national corporations whose only priority is raking in ever-higher profits.”

Speaking like a proud libertarian, Mark Wachtler goes on to share his personal feelings about the country’s two establishment parties. “After three decades of war, debt, corruption and ever-increasing American poverty, why would anyone want to be either a Republican or a Democrat anymore?” he asks, giving a glimpse of things to come from the new libertarian news outlet.

Proudly proclaimed on the site’s home page at LibertarianPartyNews.com, the news hub considers itself the premier place for Libertarian Party news, candidates, announcements and more. An independent news outlet and not part of the party itself, the site’s sole mission is to assist the Libertarian Party, its members and candidates in getting their message of liberty to the American people.
