ALL OTHER MEETINGS WILL TAKE PLACE ON THE FIRST WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH THROUGHOUT 2014, UNLESS YOU RECEIVE UPDATED INFORMATION FROM ME.
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 are two other Libertarian candidates for Congress in Ohio, Eric Eberly in District 5 and David Harlow in District 10. Bob Sherwin is running for state representative in Lorain County, Mark Noble in Columbus and the complete list of Ohio candidates is available at http://www.lp.org/candidates-14.
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 .
Cleveland.com has provided me and our other candidates in northeast Ohio with the opportunity to present our views briefly and concisely. My commentary is at http://vote.cleveland.com/race-detail.do?id=12760698&party=L You can easily locate all of our area and statewide candidates from there.
My new website, www.mackoforliberty.org, now includes this and other commentaries and several of my appearances on Robert Rule’s show http://www.blogtalkradio.com/robertrule are on my website and on YouTube. I hope that you will find them informative, as well as other new material, including video broadcasts of The Dan Smoot Report.
I plan to expand the website greatly in the coming months.

The Andover TEA party will have two speakers running for US congress in the 14th Ohio District.
Republican challenger Matt Lynch,
Libertarian candidate Dave Macko.
Our keynote will be the Libertarian candidate for Ohio governor Charlie Earl. He will update us on Kasich’s plan to destroy the Libertarian Party and how to counter it.
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. She has made herself a leading expert on Common Core, Obama’s plan to totally federalize and destroy our public education system.
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 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 is my response to 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 for the state legislature in a three way race in Ohio.
Here, again, are Bob’s sources.

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]
John Hospers, a leading libertarian philosopher of the twentieth century, the first Libertarian candidate for president and, so far, the only Libertarian candidate who has won an electoral vote wrote the brilliant article, A Libertarian Argument Against Open Borders http://mises.org/journals/jls/13_2/13_2_3.pdf.
Unless you are an anarchist, a philosophical position which has very seldom been converted to reality throughout history and then only in a few unusual locations such as Iceland during the Middle Ages, the existence of borders and some degree of government is a given. As such, we have a right as citizens of this nation to determine who enters our country just as we have a right as property owners to determine who enters our property.
Iceland was exceptional because it was on the edge of civilization and had a very small population which was racially, ethnically, religiously and linguistically homogeneous. If America is overrun by hundreds of millions of Mexicans, Africans, Asians and other unassimilable aliens, the one-worlder international bankster enemies of the human race will be able to exterminate the descendants of the founding core of Americans who brought civilization to the American continent and plunge the new inhabitants of this land mass into slavery.
For example, Mexico revolted against Spain in 1810. By 1824, after gaining independence and experimenting with an emperor, the Mexicans established a constitutional republic modeled very closely, at least on paper, on the United States. However, by 1836, they had sunk into dictatorship under Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, from which the Texans revolted and declared independence. Americans preserved constitutional, mostly libertarian government from 1789 to 1861 and, partially, from 1877 to 1913, before beginning the long spiral to tyranny where we find ourselves now. Was this result genetic or cultural? I do not know for sure. However, if you advocate open borders you are risking the existence of the remnants of the greatest experiment in liberty of all history, perhaps for a thousand years. Do you want to take that risk and doom your children and grandchildren to an existence of hellish slavery?

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.”
