My apologies if you've already read this or simply don't care, I'm posting it most of the communities that listed 'third parties' as an interest and a few others as well.
I've created a community called us_thirdparties
. It is a community for people interested in 'third' party politics in the United States. A place to ask questions and get answers about specific third parties or just the third party movement. Anyone of any political persuasion is invited to join and contribute and hopefully we can build a community with diverse political views. The ultimate goal of this community is to spread awareness of the third party movement and hopefully garner new support for the inclusion of these 'alternative' parties in American politics, so please lets try and avoid pointless bickering over individual policies. Keep in mind that legitimacy for one 'third' party is legitimacy for all 'third' parties.
(For the time being this community will be only lightly moderated, if at all, but I will crack down if people can't be civil. Hopefully we can all get along well enough to work towards our common and worthy goal: freedom of choice in politics.)

Here's something I didn't know. This sounds like something I'd expect to read about Teddy Roosevelt:
According to recently-surfaced reports, when Reagan was a radio sportscaster in Des Moines, Iowa back in the fall of 1933, he came to the rescue - gun in hand - of King, who was then a 22-year-old nursing student. King recently recalled the incident to a Des Moines television station, noting that a mugger had come up from behind to rob her, outside the rooming house where Reagan was living. The robbery was thwarted when Reagan appeared in a second-floor window, gripping a .45-caliber pistol, and telling the mugger to "leave her alone or I'll shoot you right between the shoulders."
Pretty bad ass if you ask me.

The Death of Reagan
I don't really have much to say about this, since I was never a huge Reagan fan, and actually find conservative Reagan worship kind of annoying, but since it's the big news item, I thought I'd link to my favorite commentary on the whole thing:Virginia PostrelAndrew Sullivan
I do believe Reagan was one of the great 20th century presidents, and will always be remembered for winning the cold war. As many flaws as his administration had, the Europe I will visit in a few days is able to unite today in freedom largely because of the policies of Ronald Reagan.
Who is Liberty's Worst Enemy?
The answer is.... The Libertarians!
. If there's any group that could make freedom and liberty into a kooky political movement, it's the Libertarians. It seems odd that I'd start out posting by blasting the party of liberty, but I think at this point hey are actually doing more harm than good. I'll be making a series of posts dissecting Badnarik's stated positions. I'll start in the order he had them listed on his web page (looks like he's revising it right now. Maybe even he realizes how nutty some of it sounds). OK... so let me dive in:( Start HereCollapse )

What's in a name?
I named this group after The Republican Liberty Caucus, which is the libertarian group in the Republican party that no one listens to anymore. I had to drop the Republican part, because a) it doesn't fit, and b) I'm not a Republican. I'll be posting real material soon.
Posting will be kind of slow for a while because of my trip to Europe, but part of my reason for starting this is so other people could post stuff too.
