    Would you support me if I decided to run for political office?

    Thread Starter: Brett85

    I'm just posting a poll to try to gauge people's support if I were to run for state representative. I live in Kansas where they just passed a massive 1.2 billion tax increase. My representative is a liberal Republican who voted for that tax increase. He and all of the other big government Republicans in Kansas need to be replaced in the next election. I know that in the past people on this...

    "World's Smallest Political Quiz" door hangers & the effectiveness of leafleting

    Thread Starter: tacojones

    At the Libertarian party website, they sell these "World's Smallest Political Quiz" door hangers for 5 cents apiece: https://lpstore.org/product/door-hanger-quiz/ On the surface, this seems like a pretty ideal way to advertise your cause. I can't think of a cheaper way to get a message in front of someone's face. All you need is the money to print up literature materials and the willingness...

    Trump Should Veto Congress’ Foolish New Sanctions Bill

    Thread Starter: goldenequity

    Trump Should Veto Congress’ Foolish New Sanctions Bill This week’s expected House vote to add more sanctions on Russia, Iran, and North Korea is a prime example of how little thought goes into US foreign policy. Sanctions have become kind of an automatic action the US government takes when it simply doesn’t know what else to do.

    Question: Since 'the powers that be' can print unlimited amounts of money, then doesn't that negate the Austrian argument about minimum wage? It seems to me that in a world of 100% redeemable currency, the money supply is fairly static and restricted by natural occurrences. For example, when miners mine gold then the money supply increases. If a gold shipment sinks in the ocean, then the money...
