Music City Liberty Fest

On the heels of this month’s Libertyfest, the folks in the liberty movement are holding another festival which will spread the message of individual liberty while at the same time benefiting some great charities. Scheduled speakers/performers include Tatiana Moroz-seen below-and Jordan Page, as well as acclaimed Austrian theorist and economist Robert Murphy. The details...

Libertas

As we’ve discussed in previous posts, the main draw for LibertyFest was not personalities. Although Ron Paul, ironically, has become an icon for many in the libertarian movement within the United States, that movement is a cult of ideas more than anything. In fact, one of the recurring themes throughout the day was the...

A Cross Of Gold?

A Cross Of Gold?

Update: My full live-tweet of the debate between Andrew Schiff and Joe Weisenthal and Josh Barro is online! Coincidently, this month’s issue of The American Spectator has an expansive essay by investment banker, former NY gubernatorial candidate, and member of the 1981 Gold Commission-along with Congressman Ron Paul-Lew Lehrman, which advocates adopting to a...

Libertyfest

Libertyfest

As someone who had never attended Liberty Fest-this was its third iteration, as the banner onto which the shadow of radio and television personality Lionel is projected indicates-I didn’t come into the event with any preconceived ideas or expectations. Even though I had been to events organized around similar principles, an eight hour-long seminar/concert/bull session...

Put together by Gigi Bowman, Ian Cioffi and Steven...

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

May Day 2012 (Marxists, Communists, Librarians)

One of the hallmarks of demonstrations organized by the left-as anyone who lives in this city can attest-is a consistently muddled message-or assemblage of messages-which often has little bearing on the theme ostensibly animating the protest movement in question. I’m not sure if the occupiers displaying the words of anti-USSR, Marxist Polish philosopher-turned anti-Marxist...

Philadelphia Phreedom (Part II)

Philadelphia Phreedom (Part II)

That is a photograph of the very demonstrative State Senator Mike Doherty, whose address to the Paul faithful was interrupted by the man everyone had come to Philadelphia to see, accompanied-as always-by his charming wife, Carol. Senator Doherty was the penultimate speaker in a stable of high profile Paul supporters who took the stage across...

Philadelphia Phreedom/End The Fed

Philadelphia Phreedom/End The Fed

That is Congressman Ron Paul, speaking to a surprisingly large crowd of supporters on the extremely wet lawn of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the day before today’s Republican presidential primary. The site where this nation’s founding charter was drafted was an apt forum for a candidate whose entire campaign is based upon a...

Philadelphia Freedom

Philadelphia Freedom

Sunday morning I’ll be leaving the warm cocoon of New York City in order to attend the Philadelphia Phreedom rally on the lawn of Independence Hall. Held two days before the Pennsylvania Republican primary, the event is intended to bring together disparate members of the liberty movement in order to support one of the...
