    If you thought paying 5cents tax per bottle of beer, soda, sparking water, juice, and yes even regular water was a lot, think again! The recycle rate in OR dropped, so after 45 years, people got used to paying the 5 cent per bottle tax and moving on with their time. The government fix was to increase the tax by 100%. Now a bottle of soda worth 25 cents might has a 10 cent tax on it in OR. Sounds good, no? http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2016/08/what_you_need_to_know_about_or.html That's right, next year OR will expand this doubled tax rate to include many other beverages :(

    All of these various education methods have their ways towards spreading the message. The organizations the Koch brothers have a hand in tend to be the best at spread the message, but some folks don't like them. It is good for competing organizations to exist, like the organizations you named, and the LP, to reach more people.

    He doesn't have to step down, but he can only run for either state or federal senate as his current term is a 2 year term. However, in 5 years, he is term limited anyway.

    This seems aligned with that I thought the LP was about. The LP is about spreading the message of liberty, not getting elected. This created news/social media buzz. People are talking about the LP. Some of those people are learning about liberty. Seems like a win for the LP. People that want to win partisan offices run as Republicans in most states or in New Hampshire, as Republicans or Democrats. This doesn't change that.

    Brakey is the most effective pro-liberty legislator in Maine in many years. It will be very sad for the future of liberty in Maine if he doesn't run again for the state senate. He has a path to win a U.S. Senate race. It has multiple moving parts, unfortunately. Not only does Brakey have to raise lots of money (or an outside group), LaPage needs to stay out of the race, and a strong Democrat that takes votes away from King needs to emerge. This just might be possible! :)

    We don't know if ranked choice voting will actually happen in Maine, right? My guess, and hope for the people of Maine, is that it isn't allowed. Then again, if it is allowed, I presume 1,000s of Republicans will leave Maine, many of them moving to New Hampshire and Florida. So it would be very good for me and liberty overall in the nation if ranked choice voting was allowed to happen in Maine.

    Nice! NH for years was the only state that banned ALPRs. Unfortunately, last year, the police pushed very hard, and limited use of ALPRs was finally legalized in NH. Use in NH is more limited than any other state, including MT, but it nice to see other states reforming. As for the information collected in a federal database. Sure, NH, MT, and maybe law in other states prevents it. However, we know that the spying branches of the federal government don't follow state or national laws. There might be something build into ALPRs, or perhaps an exploit that the NSA is aware of currently being used by the NSA. We have no idea what is happening with this information, unfortunately :( It is great to see that these type of folks exist in other states. I learn about them by the dozen in New Hampshire, as everyone knows libertarians get elected as Republicans in NH. It is very encouraging that it occasionally happens in other states :)

    The little girl said she wanted peace in Syria. The easiest thing the US can do to bring about peace is to stop spending a billion a year and many bombs helping the rebels and terrorists in Syria. This isn't rocket science.

    It is great that there is more diversity of thought on the right than on the left. The right allows open debate. That's why almost all great thinkers when given the options of right vs. left, choose right. Thanks for reminding us :)

    Shem was right. Senator Eric helped Ron Paul. The voters would be smart to make him a senator for the whole nation, not just Maine :)

    After the police realized he wasn't breaking any laws. they backed off. It is unfortunate that these extremely well paid public servants are either poorly trained, trained to lie, or both. Here is the video of him open carrying in the city building with a group of supports while he pays in pennies. It was annoying of him to get the pennies in rolls and them break them up, but hey, the public servants also annoyed him. Thankfully he didn't do this on the last day of the month :D

    Instead of "if" I should have typed "for." Anyway, it was a joke. Folks around here often lose when running for office. I don't see why we need to be realistic about running for office now :)

    More information on the ND law. The ND government issued a press release saying "Governor Doug Burgum today signed legislation allowing law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed handgun if they have possessed a valid North Dakota driver’s license or state ID card for at least a year." So while the law specifically doesn't say it only applies to ND residences, the clause about "department of transportation" is likely meant to only mean the ND Department of Transportation, even though ND has compacts with other states whereas it 100% recognizes driver's licenses from other states as official department of transportation documents. The press release https://www.governor.nd.gov/news/burgum-signs-%E2%80%9Cconstitutional-carry%E2%80%9D-bill-law At this point, I admit I'm so confused on the new law, I'm willing to agree with people that say it isn't Constitutional Carry. Sorry, ND, I could be wrong. Good luck and be safe folks! If you are going to try CC in ND, consider keeping the card of a lawyer on your person, just in case.

    Steve was a New Hampshire representative off an on for ten terms. Steve started his public service as a Democrat. He late switched to the Libertarian Party and was one of the few legislators to ever be elected as an official member of the Libertarian Party. Just like Ron Paul, Steve decided it was easier to get elected and help liberty as a Republican. This made Steve the only legislator in U.S. history to be elected as a Democrat, Libertarian, and a Republican. When Ron Paul decided to run for President as a Republican, Steve got on board. Not only did Steve endorse Ron Paul, he ran Ron Paul's ads on his Manchester public access show. Those in the liberty movement best know Steve as the longest serving libertarian state legislator in our movement. Cannabis activists know him as sponsoring the 2014 bill that when passed the New Hampshire House, because the first cannabis legalization bill to ever be supported by a state legislative body in the nation. Those in New England best know him for his controversial comments that occasionally got him headlines from various North East publications and news websites. Those in the New Hampshire House best know Steve as the top orator in the building. Those in Manchester know him as a community leader and tireless public servant. Steve earned every penny of the total $2,000 salary he made in his ten terms as a legislator! What I respected most about Steve were his detailed writings about New Hampshire politics, his perhaps best in New Hampshire political prognosticator skills, and his willingness to meet with and help train liberty candidates and free staters. I will forever be in his debt. Rest in Peace Steve. Learn more about Steve on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Vaillancourt I'm going to post various comments from Twitter. Facebook, and articles about the passing of Steve in the comments. Please feel free to add your own thoughts.

    I spoke with the best legislator in Maine today. He said he tried to address the notify the police issue and 21 year old police in his state's Constitutional Carry law. There was very little support from politicians in either party. Looks like they are stuck with that junk in Maine for at least a few years, if not much longer :( In Maine they had an excuse for a problematic bill. The ME House was Democrat controlled when they passed Constitutional Carry. ND is very Republican. There was no excuse.
