In an email to the Libertarian News Examiner Ed "NJWeedman" Forchion said, "My website was set up just for curious jurors, and the state's newspapers even provided good video and stories for the jurors to understand my legal arguments about jury nullification. I whooped the state in terms of whose message got out. I had a PR field day at the expense of the state."

A PolicyMic article recognizes that both progressives and libertarians have a "noble impulse" to improve society.
But the article also acknowledges that progressives think they can accomplish their desires by "expanding government's roles and responsibilities" while Libertarians understand that these goals can be achieved only by "limiting government's roles and responsibilities."

The United States today operates under a muddle of old-style European socialism, fascism and colonialism with Americanized definitions designed to hide that reality.
America's social policy, with its unending bureaucratic programs to "help" the poor, the needy, the children, the disabled, the disenfranchised that benefits the authoritarian ruling class at the expense of productive citizens is the direct result of the Democrat Party adopting and implementing the old Socialist Party of America platform along with its class warfare under the now unpopular name "liberalism."

It's always fun to read one of the many "Why I'm not a libertarian" articles that continually pop up on the Internet year after year after year, even as libertarianism continues to be discovered and captured by ever more open and excited minds.
Typing the phrase "Why I'm not a libertarian" into Google, with quotation marks, will get you page upon page of results of postings and videos, all with the identical title.
While non-libertarians have endless reasons for rejecting their own freedom they apparently have a paucity of imagination when it comes to titling their articles.

On December 16 The Daily Caller ran this headline on its original home page sandwiched between the blistering banner 'MATERIAL SUPPORT' and a giant full color photo of the Twin Towers exploding:
Federal judge: Iran shares responsibility for 9/11 terror attacks
For folks who don't pay much attention, the self-chosen Ruling Class and its sit-up-and-beg mainstream media pets have been spoon-feeding us a steady diet of warmongering propaganda the same way they did under Bush leading up to the invasion of Iraq.

While barely reported in US mainstream media, which comes as little surprise to libertarians, two top US hurricane forecasters at Colorado State University admitted they "are quitting the practice of making a seasonal forecast in December because it doesn't work."
For 20 years William Gray, recently joined by Phil Klotzbach, has been preeminent at making December forecasts on how many named storms and hurricanes to expect during each official June-to-November hurricane season.

Fox News Pundit Chris Wallace told Fox news Pundit Neil Cavuto that if Ron Paul wins the Iowa caucuses it would discredit the Iowa caucuses.
"Well, the Ron Paul people are not going to like my saying this," Fox News Pundit Chris Wallace said on Fox News Pundit Neil Cavuto's show, "Your World with Neil Cavuto," and then said anyway, "but to a certain degree it will discredit the Iowa caucuses because rightly or wrongly, I think most of the Republican establishment thinks he is not going to end up as the nominee, so therefore Iowa won't count."
