A PERSONAL MESSAGE
On Thursday, March 22, the day after I had been taped on the Bob Murphey Show, on WELW http://www.mackoforliberty.com/radio-appearances/118-macko-on-welw.html, I became ill with what was determined to be an intestinal obstruction due to a hernia. On March 26, I went under the knife and came home on March 29, where I have been recovering. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the LPO State Convention and I have decided not to attend the LP National Convention in Las Vegas at the beginning of May.
HOWEVER, I EXPECT TO RECOVER FULLY AND CONDUCT MY CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN AS PLANNED ALTHOUGH I HAVE NOT WRITTEN THE UPDATE FOR MY CONGRESSIONAL WEBSITE OR MY CAMPAIGN LITERATURE EXCEPT FOR THE PRELIMINARY FLYER WHICH ALSO APPEARS AT WWW.MACKOFORLIBERTY.COM , which I used during my primary campaign appearances.
OUR NEXT REGULAR MEETING:
7:00 PM Wednesday, May 2 Since I will not be attending the 2012 National LP Convention, the first which I have missed since 1987, our meeting will be held at Denny’s Restaurant, 4331 West 150th Street, Cleveland, just south of I 71 as usual. We will hold our meetings at the same location on the first Wednesday of each month except July. If you wish to eat, you should arrive by 6:00 PM.
As always, our meetings are free and open to the public. Bring friends to become better informed.
If you have suggestions for future speakers or programs or any other questions or comments, please email me or call me at 440-248-8620.
STATE AND NATIONAL LIBERTARIAN PARTY NEWS
The Libertarian Party National Convention will take place at the Red Rock Resort, 11011 West Charleston Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada, from May 3 to 6. See www.lp.org for details. Contact the LPO through www.lpo.org to find out how to become a delegate. If you wish to attend as a delegate, contact Kevin Knedler, State Chairman. You must be a member of the Libertarian Party to become a delegate.
Gary Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico, who established an excellent record as governor of Arizona where he vetoed 750 bills, has left the Republican campaign and is now running for the Libertarian nomination for president. He has joined R. Lee Wrights, Bill Still, Carl Person and the very creative James Libertarian Burns (no relation to our persistent and very imaginative Congressional candidate in Cincinnati). The establishment was able to black out Governor Johnson thoroughly since he was not as well-known as Ron Paul. To his credit, he did not allow himself to be used as a tool in the anti-Paul movement. His budget plan is actually better than Doctor Paul’s since it would cut the budget 43% the first year, rather than the one trillion dollar reduction which the only qualified Republican candidate proposes.
The convention will choose the Libertarian candidates for President and Vice President, Chairman, the officers and members of the Libertarian National Committee and will review portions of the Platform and By-Laws. There are various packages which include events and deadlines, including hotel rooms.
I have been a delegate to every national convention of the Libertarian Party since 1987 and, except for 2006, when our national platform was eviscerated, and 2008, when we chose a former CIA agent who voted for the PATRIOT Act, as Presidential candidate, and has now endorsed a one-worlder, New Ager for President, they have all been enjoyable, educational experiences. I urge you to attend and will be glad to provide guidance to new delegates.
COMMENTARY ON THE MARCH 6TH PRIMARY ELECTION
We still do not yet have the official results for John Fockler, Libertarian write-in candidate for the US Senate, or Michael Johnston, who is a write-in candidate for the Ohio House of Representatives. (As of April 13)
FUTURE LIBERTARIAN PARTY OF CUYAHOGA COUNTY MEETINGS
All meetings are scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM at Denny’s Restaurant, 4331 West 150th Street, Cleveland, except as noted below.
June 6 Mary Reynolds Powell, Past Commander of Veterans for Peace Chapter 39 and author of A World of Hurt; Between Innocence and Arrogance in Vietnam will discuss her book, Veterans for Peace and the antiwar movement.
July 11 Please note that this is the second Wednesday of July. James McAbee, who was a Libertarian Party activist in Michigan before he moved to Ohio, will discuss Ludwig Von Mises, the greatest economist of the twentieth century, and his very important perspectives on the subject of socialism.
August 1 Scott Sedlak of the Thomas Jefferson Knowledge Institute will discuss the importance of his organization in educating school children and their parents about the importance of the US Constitution in restoring our liberty.

October 3 Pre-Election Planning
November 7 Election Analysis
December 5 Looking Forward To 2013
If anyone has suggestions for programs please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 440-248-8620.
This is a new feature which will continue until Election Day. Unless otherwise noted, the events are free and open to the public. It is always beneficial to show popular support for candidates. Where possible, direct questions to me so that I have more opportunity to proclaim liberty.
As of now there are no further appearances since there is usually a temporary winding down after the Primary Election. I consider my appearances on The Charlie Earl Show, at the Trumbull Township Association Candidates Forum, the Mentor 9-12 Group, the Trumbull Township Association Candidates Forum and the Cleveland Ron Paul 2012 Candidates Forum to be successes and good practice. Unfortunately, there was a technical difficulty at WSPD and I did not get a copy of my address.
If you know of any other candidates’ forums or opportunities to speak in my district, US 14, elsewhere in Cuyahoga County, Summit, and the Warren and Youngstown areas, please notify me as soon as possible. It is important to have as much information as possible to invite oneself to such events, especially if the organizers have not done so.
As America plunges into a full blown police state with the passage of Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act and signing by Obama on December 31, with almost no mention in the kept establishment media, and the threats of World War III and economic collapse loom ever larger, it is more important than ever to do as much as we can to advance the cause of liberty. Do whatever you can. Your life and liberty and the lives and liberty of those whom you love depend upon it.

Here is a list of all of the coming episodes of Ron Paul vs. the Neocons or the Republican Presidential Primary debates: http://www.2012presidentialelectionnews.com/2012-debate-schedule/2011-2012-primary-debate-schedule/ I do not believe that the conspiracy will allow Ron Paul to become president.
As to talk of having Ron Paul be a vice presidential running mate for Romney, I oppose this unlikely possibility since it would create an immense moral hazard for hundreds of thousands of patriots.
The phony general election debates, which are rigged to include only the duopoly candidates, are also listed now. In a free country, all candidates who were on the ballot in a sufficient number of states to win the election, which is an unconstitutionally harsh standard to attain already, would be included in any honest debate. None of these are honest debates. Let’s hope that somebody will organize real debates, despite all of the hindrances which tend to block such activities due to unconstitutional fedgov election laws, all of which should be abolished by Congress after defunding of the Federal Election Commission.
Any future peace coalition, along the lines of the America First Committee, which almost prevented World War II, if Roosevelt had not betrayed our troops at Pearl Harbor, must include people such as Ron Paul and Patrick Buchanan and Ralph Nader and Cindy Sheehan as well as groups throughout the political spectrum from the Libertarian Party, the Constitution Party and the John Birch Society to moderate groups such as the Veterans For Peace and groups on the principled left such as Women Speak Out For Peace and Justice, if it is to achieve success.
The Libertarian Party has a very good group of men running for president this year. Any of them would make the best president in at least 100 years. As far as I know, none of them has ever been an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency, a supporter of the abominable PATRIOT Act or an endorser of one-worlder, New Ager, Newt Gingrich, warmonger, antilibertarian Rick Santorum or Mitt Romney, the White Obama.
The leading candidate is Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico, who reduced taxes fifteen times and vetoed 750 bills. His plan to ballot the budget in his first year in office by reducing all fedgov spending in all departments by 43% is actually better than Ron Paul’s plan to cut one trillion dollars in his first year in office. Among other excellent choices, longtime activist Lee Wrights, who is only 52 and has the opportunity to run for several presidential campaigns and James Libertarian Burns, a very creative and principled patriot.
The enemy will use its usual time worn techniques of claiming that Obama is so horrible that we must again choose the lesser of evils, Romney, in order to defeat him. The American people have been following this path for almost one hundred years. It has worked every time! We continue to get more and more evil.
I want to preface my next statement to decrease the likelihood of its being taken out of context. If I am elected to Congress and Barack Hussein Obama alias Barry Soetoro aka The Long Legged Mack-daddy is reelected, I will propose to impeach him for treason, war crimes and treating the Constitution of the United States as though it were a piece of toilet paper.
That said, it would probably be better to have Obama reelected than to have the one-worlder, neocon war monger, statist Romney be elected. Obama has done more to awaken the American people than Libertarians and other patriots have done in a decade, more even than Ron Paul. The sale of guns and ammunition, alone, is proof of this. The election of Romney will put many good patriots back to sleep again while this country continues to go to Hell, perhaps five to ten percent less quickly but to Hell nevertheless. Anyone who is promoting Romney as the lesser of two evils is an enemy of liberty and should never be trusted.
Regarding the killing of “Black youth” Trayvon Martin by the half-white, half-Hispanic George Zimmerman, which has been blown out of proportion and distorted in such an outstanding manner, even by our enemy, the establishment media, I tend to believe that the purposes of so magnifying the death of the unarmed seventeen year old are to re-energize one of Obama’s primary election blocs and to attack our God-given right to keep and bear arms. However, the enemy could be planning the long predicted race war to try to destroy the United States.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FROM JBS COORDINATOR THOMAS J. RICE;
STILL WORTHY OF REPETITION
From: Thomas J. Rice
Sent: Fri 11/11/2011 9:58 PM
Subject: FW: House Con-Con Bill
To all John Birch Society Chapter Leaders and Friends of the Constitution:
Currently there are two bills in the Ohio General Assembly which call for the convening of a constitutional convention. Senate Joint Resolution 2 would ask a convention to discuss a balanced budget amendment, an amendment giving the President the line item veto, and an amendment requiring Congress to adopt budgets every two years ( instead of annually ). House Joint Resolution 3 would ask a convention to discuss an amendment that would require federal debt increases to be approved by a majority of state legislatures. These bills have been referred to their respective House and Senate committees (refer to the above attachments).
THESE CON-CON BILLS MUST BE DEFEATED. Please contact your chapter members and patriotic friends, urging them to contact the members of these respective House and Senate committees, encouraging them to vote against S.J.R. 2 and H.J.R. 3.
John Birch Society Coordinator
AN ELECTION YEAR PURGE TO HELP OBAMA?
Judge Andrew Napolitano’s excellent libertarian show, Freedom Watch, has just been purged by Fox News Business Channel. Apparently only neocons need apply, with the exception of the brilliant John Stossel, who keeps strictly to economics.
Patrick Buchanan, the antiwar statesman who has run for President several times, has also been dumped by MSNBC, although this is more understandable since they now have an ideologically consistent bunch of communists there.
The death of Andrew Breitbart, which the medical/media establishment declared to be natural a few hours after he died, although it took several weeks before we learned the cause of Whitney Houston’s death from the coroner’s report, was a major subject of The Alex Jones Report immediately after the young man’s sudden death. Breitbart was going to release important information about Obama which he believed would remove Obama from office. See www.infowars.com for more information. I regard Alex Jones as the most important source of daily news information, especially when unusual deaths or other disturbing and suspicious events occur.
Just a few days ago National Review fired John Derbyshire for speaking the truth. http://www.drudge.com/news/155446/national-review-fires-john-derbyshire
NEXT TIME I STILL HOPE TO BEGIN A NEW SERIES, FORGOTTEN HEROES. I WILL START WITH HON. LEWIS T. MCFADDEN.
