  • Rothbard’s Practical Politics

    Norman Singleton is Rep. Ron Paul’s Legislative Director. He has worked for Dr. Paul since 1997.

  • The Costs of Principle

    Libertarians beware:  The costs of principle are high and difficult to endure. Jeff Frazee’s “Winning on Principle” article is dead on.  The truth of the matter is this:  Winning without principle (Republicans) is no better than losing with principle (libertarians).  The recent attempts to take down Rand Paul’s campaign for Senate can serve as good …
