MARCH 2, AD 2014
CUYAHOGA COUNTY LIBERTARIAN GROUP MEETINGS
Due to the global warming, I postponed our February meeting to the 19th. Therefore, attendance was very low. Our next regularly scheduled meeting is March 5 at 7:00 PM. Our regular location is Denny’s Restaurant 4331 West 150th Street, Cleveland (just south of I 71). ALL OTHER MEETINGS WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH THROUGHOUT 2014, UNLESS YOU RECEIVE UPDATED INFORMATION FROM ME.
I met Peg Slingluff during my last campaign for Congress in 2012. She was the dedicated patriot who created and led the Andover Tea Party and defeated the fascist attempt by their city fathers to prevent the Andover Tea Party from exercising its God-given, constitutionally guaranteed rights of assembly and petitioning for redress of grievances.
As some of you know certain Tea Party and affiliated patriot groups were infiltrated and captured by the Republican Party. Generally, I was not welcome to proclaim liberty at those groups during my campaign. Peg always welcomed me and encouraged me to speak out.
Last week, she passed away, unexpectedly. I am proud to have known her and extend deepest condolences to her husband, Larry, and to the rest of her family. We need ten thousand men and women like her to restore liberty.
On February 18, I was officially certified as the Libertarian candidate for Congress and for the State Central Committee in the 14th Congressional District. I will continue to campaign to abolish the police state, prevent World War III and end the depression and never vote to increase taxes or create new ones or violate the Constitution or to limit the liberties of any American or lawful guest. I will also fight to take the most important IMMEDIATE measure to achieve these ends, to impeach Barack Hussein Obama for murder and other war crimes, treason, total contempt for the Constitution of the United States and to become a usurper and dictator.
There is also much good news for every voter in Ohio. All registered voters will have the opportunity to vote for Charlie Earl for Governor, Sherry Clark for Lieutenant Governor and Steve Linnabary for Attorney General.
LIBERTARIAN WRITE IN CANDIDATES. Our LPO Chairman, Kevin Knedler, will be a candidate for Secretary of State. Our political director, Bob Bridges, will be a candidate for Auditor of State. THEY MUST EACH RECEIVE AT LEAST 500 WRITE IN VOTES TO BE ON THE BALLOT FOR THE GENERAL ELECTION ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4 BE SURE TO SPELL THEIR NAMES CORRECTLY.
Beside me, there is another Libertarian candidate for Congress in Ohio. Bob Sherwin is running for state representative in Lorain County, Mark Noble in Columbus and several others who are also running. Next month I should have the complete list.
THE ONLY WAY TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE LIBERTARIAN PARTY OF OHIO AND PARTICIPATE FULLY IN CONTINUING TO MAKE IT BIGGER AND BETTER IS TO VOTE IN THE PRIMARY ELECTION AS A LIBERTARIAN IN THE MAY 6TH PRIMARY ELECTION .
Also, the Libertarian Party Annual State Convention will take place in Columbus in only a few weeks at the Doubletree Hotel. The convention begins Friday evening, March 7 and ends at noon, Sunday, March 9. For more information about the convention and our candidates, check www.lpo.org.

The Andover TEA party will have 3 speakers running for US congress in the 14th Ohio district.
Republican incumbent Dave Joyce,
Republican challenger Matt Lynch,
Libertarian candidate Dave Macko.
Our keynote will be the Libertarian candidate for Ohio governor Charlie Earl.
Ohio State School Board district 7 representative Sarah Fowler will be on hand as well, but has graciously offered to give up her speaking time if things run too long. As usual she will be fully available to her constituency while there.
Casey Kozlowski (R-Pierpont) will also speak as he is running for Ashtabula county commissioner.
Invited but yet to confirm is Independent Scott Rupert, who will be back in the ring for US Senate in 2016 after winning over five percent of the vote in 2012.
Please make this viral among all groups in the Ohio CD-14 region. Here is a chance to listen to the candidates and learn their position, as well as ask pertinent questions before the election.
The park can easily hold 1000 people, parking can be worked out.
NOTE: Chaffee Park Orwell Ohio is 1/10 of a mile north of 322 on route 45, across from St Mary’s church.
Again, thanks to Steve Berecek for all of his efforts to restore liberty, justice and peace.
Here, from longtime L/libertarian patriot, Bob Williams, the only person as far as I know to have been Region Chairman of two Ohio regions, and who also tied me by winning 5.56% of the vote in his race for state representative in 2010, which was the second highest percentage of votes for any alternate party candidate in a three way race in Ohio.
Here are more sources for your upcoming issue of Macko Unleashed on the libertarian v conservative debate on borders.
Walter Block’s explanation of libertarian opposition to borders: [http://www.mises.org/journals/jls/13_2/13_2_4.pdf]
Walter Block on Hoppe’s errors on immigration [http://www.mises.org/daily/1522]:
“Hoppe maintains as a matter of principle that government is entitled to restrict immigration. To be sure, he maintains this position on the . . . grounds that uninvited border crossings constitute trespass.
However, this argument is subject to two simple refutations. First, if invited immigrants may not enter the country, then neither may new babies. Second, there are vast unowned areas of the United States; if immigrants enter these, there can be no question of trespass.
Third, Hoppe maintains that libertarianism is but a version of conservatism, and the latter but a branch of the former. The two are joined at the hip, as it were. The truth of the matter, in contrast, is that there is an unbridgeable gap between them.”
More Walter Block and Anthony Gregory sorting out Hoppe’s errors in opposition to the libertarian stance to abolish borders: [http://mises.org/journals/jls/21_3/21_3_2.pdf]
I will present my position and the reasons for it in my next issue.
Until then, here is a rational libertarian response to the open borders concept which is killing our country. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eLLiNA1HII&feature=youtu.be

OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS AND COMMENTS
Excerpt: Ron Paul, writing in 1981—“Today, we are seeing a piecemeal destruction of individual freedom. And in abortion, the statists have found a most effective method of obliterating freedom: obliterating the individual. Abortion on demand is the ultimate State tyranny; the State simply declares that certain classes of human beings are not persons, and therefore not entitled to the protection of the law. The State protects the ‘right’ of some people to kill others, just as the courts protected the ‘property rights’ of slave masters in their slaves.”
