      My son was on a school trip to Washington, DC last week, and one of their
      stops was Charlie Bass' office. Bass was not in, but one of his aides met
      with the students.

      My son decided to ask hum(without any prompting from me!), "What do you
      think of the libertarians and the Free State Project?"

      The aide answered that we were a group of extremists who wanted to turn the
      clock back 50 years, but, more interesting, that we did not have a grasp on
      the advances in technology that requires a more active government role in
      daily life.

      Somehow, being able to do things without government is now an excuse for
      increased government control. Guess they're afraid of losing their grip....

        Interesting...but not surprising. Bass has been a leading advocate of
        REAL ID and the Patriot Act. He's one of the bad guys, by and large.

          Proof that at the national level there isn't a dime's worth of
          difference between a statist R and a statist D. They are all run by
          shadow government and kow-tow to the UN etc. I am appalled at how
          many folks calling themselves 'libertarian' do not grasp the scope of
          power and influence the UN has and seeks to have over our lives in
          the form of global governance! This is also an influence that makes
          the parties seem the same...

          At the state level we still have good people in the R party who want
          smaller gov't and less taxation.
          They are your best allies here, but in some cases we get the Ds on
          board, like with the Real ID act.

          You can't always tell and must go by the issues.

          Whenever there is a group promoting a cause, I always check what they
          are doing before advocating or supporting them. For example, while it
          would seem good that Vt Commons wants to secede from the Union, you
          can see on their site they are still carping about the partisan
          matter of 'who stole the national election'. If they were smart, they
          would realize that it does not matter who wins the presidency. This
          is typical partisan bickering that is *encouraged* by those who would
          control us, just to divide us so we won't focus on what they are
          doing to take away our liberties and sovereignty. To me, no matter
          who won the election, it would be 'stolen' because it belongs to the
          shadow gov't. I view Bush bashing in a similar matter, since he alone
          is not responsible for very much of what is and has been going on for
          years.

          Also they love to get people emotionally involved in issues like
          'anti-war'. Well heck, I don't know anyone who likes or wants war,
          but I refuse to be sidetrackedor co-opted by that useless/endless
          debate! Again, it keeps you fighting windmills, while they pass laws
          and get the US to sign treaties to further expand their global
          tentacles...and thus ignoring the real problems.

          Upon further investigation, I see Vt Commons not only recognizes the
          UN as an authority but they are appealing to the UN for their
          secession into an 'area', same of which the UN has in mind for when
          it divides up the world in its global gov't! Amazing!

          Yet some FSPers are promoting these folks, who along with the Vermont
          Republic group, are simply leftovers from the socialist 60s movements
          and by their actions, just speeding along the road to one world
          government.

          Bottom line is: Don't let the enemy get you so upset by the problems
          they have created for us that you take them up on the solutions they
          have offered! It's a trap many have fallen into. It's the old
          "Hegelian Dialect"...and it's their MO so to speak.

            hope someone comes on the scene to challenge him in the primaries. If not
            this year, then in two years, when the Free Staters and other advocates for
            personal liberty are much stronger. ---Tim Condon

              Not completely true, I would offer. Contention is good. With a statist
              (since that's the only choice) GOP Congress, I definitely want a statist
              (again, only choice) Dem White House, and vice versa; a position
              eminently justified in recent years, because even if they want the same
              things, they won't admit it publicly. Keep 'em fighting, and less
              authoritarianism actually gets done. Too much DC kumbaya is _always_
              wa-a-ay bad for the rest of us...
