Dear Robin,

President Obama's budget proposal released today has attracted much attention for its stunning price tag: $3.8 billion, with a projected one-year deficit of $1.6 trillion.

While there are some who downplay the importance of deficits (Dick Cheney comes to mind, as does Marshall Auerback), discerning Americans know that folks singing the praises of stimulatory deficit spending are actually repeating the discredited refrain of the (in)famous financier Jay Cooke. Mr. Cooke authored a pamphlet entitled How Our National Debt May Be a National Blessing before he helped unleash a credit bubble that bankrupted himself and his country in the Panic of 1873.

Somewhat lost in the partisan response to President Obama's budget, however, is the realization that cutting discretionary spending is not enough. Now more than ever, it should be obvious that we must come home from Iraq, and not sacrifice more people and treasure in Afghanistan. In short, this proposed budget contains 1.6 trillion reasons to bring our troops home.

It has been said that "War is the health of the State." With respect to war, we have been veritable gluttons over the past few decades. We've fought a War on Poverty, War on Cancer, War on Drugs, and War on Terror. What do we have to show for our efforts?

More poverty, more cancer, more drugs, and more terror.

So where is the health? When you drive into any small town in North Carolina, the nicest building is typically the city hall, courthouse, or prison. The police and sheriff cars are usually sweet looking, brand new hot rods with low-profile light bars, and often at events you see public safety personnel rolling around on pricey Segway scooters.

Yet factories are boarded up, commercial building are vacant and falling into disrepair, and our state's unemployment insurance fund is bankrupt and borrowing from the federal government.

There is a better way. I am excited to report that in the coming weeks we'll be talking more about it.

There is also action you can take today -- it's my friend Adam Kokesh's birthday, and his Congressional campaign in New Mexico's Third District is having a fundraiser to celebrate. As a fellow noninterventionist, I know that Adam Kokesh also represents the future of principled politics, and the Republican party. Please join me in wishing him and his campaign a happy birthday.

In liberty,



B.J.

So good!

Thats what someone else hinted to me on the forum when I asked about him running for a local office. So I'm going to bet we'll hear his decision tomorrow.

Why tomorrow? And where/how?

I just went to his website and it said he decided not to, but that was in August 2009 so who knows how he feels now. . .

Local office, not federal:

I'd like to see BJ move to Bob Etheridge's district so he can run against him.

I know a lot of people there who'd support him.

:D - Yeah, all I'd heard was that tomorrow would be the "official" announcement. Was fun building a bit of buzz though :)

I'm in for supporting BJ. I found out about him very late in his run last time. I seem to remember him claiming he didn't want to run again, but glad he's changed his mind.

Isn't it a little late?? I was really disappointed when he said he wouldn't run 2010 last year.. I thought that with all that's going on he would have a good chance.

I feel like he's lost months of potential momentum.. But it's better late than never! I'm glad he's going to run.


I don't understand why C4L doesn't organize our own convention.. It would be better than any "National Tea Party" convention like last week. Especially if all the good candidates like Medina, Kokesh, RP, etc. and now BJ too. I really wish something like this could be organized.. It would be a great response to the FAKE Tea Party they had last week, just like it was a great response to the "Republican" Convention. That way we can remind the public what the "Tea Parties" are supposed to be about.

But the C4L doesn't support candidates, why would we have a convention with a bunch of candates we can't support? :rolleyes: :eek: :confused: :D
