Russell Means, 72, died Monday at his South Dakota ranch from inoperable throat cancer.
The Associated Press article posted at whitewolfpack.com recounts his career as an American Indian Movement activist during the 1973 uprising at Wounded Knee, as a candidate for the Libertarian Party's nomination for president in 1987, as an actor in such films as "The Last of the Mohicans" in 1992, and as a relentless advocate for civil rights for all Americans, not just American Indians.

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.

It didn't take long for big government worshippers to condemn "Mark Owen" (nom de plume for US Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette) as a "traitor" for telling his fellow Americans the truth about what actually happened during the Osama bin laden raid in his just-released book, "No Easy Day."

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."

Herr Obama signed a bill (NDAAFY2012) that declares American soil to be part of the worldwide battlefield in the War on Terror and any American citizen merely suspected or accused of some form of "complicity" with terrorists will be treated on that battlefield not as a citizen with rights but as an enemy combatant with no rights whatsoever.

New Jersey Libertarian Party candidate and jury nullification advocate Julian Heicklen is fond of saying, "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. The price of justice is eternal publicity."
Heicklen, whose Monday court appearance for "jury tampering" (the act of handing FIJA pamphlets to people in public) has been indefinitely postponed, is generating plenty of publicity.

An email called Elephants & Donkeys has been sweeping mindlessly back and forth across the ignor-net from one inbox to another that attempts to paint Republicans as Good Guys and Democrats as the Baddies.

"Ron Paul is an isolationist, I get it," declared Sean Hannity on his radio talk show following the November 22 GOP debate that focused on foreign policy.
In eight simple words Hannity unknowingly confessed that he doesn't get it.
Or, far more likely, he knowingly joined the chickenhawk left and neocon right in using the isolationist label as a slur against peaceful, freedom-loving, non empire-building, non world-policing, non-warmongering, decent Americans.

Going green has nasty un-environmental consequences that rank-and-file greenies either don't know or don't care about.
For example, those multi-acre wind farms not only kill millions of birds while delivering a mere fraction of the electricity compared to nearly every other power source but 420 of them in Pennsylvania killed 10,000 bats last year.

It's only a matter of time before every human being within reach of America's Brave New World will be implanted with a satellite-tracked ID chip.
"Americans have already implanted the chips into one million of their pets," Mac Slavo writes in "Coming Soon: Computer Chip Implants for Human Tracking," then points out, "And what are we as citizens if not pets of the government?"
