Two of the three ND candidates for US Senate began their cat fight over the Memorial Day weekend.
According to news reports, Eliot Glassheim has criticized John Hoeven’s support of Donald Trump, and apparently, the scandalous part is Hoeven won’t use the word “endorse” when mentioning his support for The Donald. Glassheim went for the kill with some rhetorical silliness about Hoeven supporting lower wages for working families, rounding up all the immigrants and leaving NATO so bad guys can load up on nuclear weapons. Continue reading Hoeven and Glassheim Spar over Nonsense→
Someone once said politics is the art of deception. And, what we have been told about the economy over the past 8 years is proof of this truism. At a press conference on April 5th, President Obama continued the deceptions as he spoke about the economy. And, as I listened to him, I could only think he must be living in a parallel universe. All I heard was one glowing statement after another about how fabulous our economy is performing. But, one needs only look at the facts reported at the end of the first-quarter to see the truth is the US Economy is contracting at an accelerated rate Continue reading The Economy could Seal the Deal for Libertarians in 2016→
Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate Robert Marquette Statement on President Obama’s SCOTUS Nominee
There has been a lot of political rhetoric out of Washington recently regarding Merrick Garland’s nomination to the SCOTUS. President Obama has spent more than 7 years using the Constitution as a piñata, and now he lectures republicans on their constitutional duties. Mitch McConnell sites an imaginary “Biden Rule” that magically suspends the Senate’s constitutional obligation to advise and consent on the president’s nominee.
But, this is all just political theater. Establishment republicans, like John Hoeven, have spent the last 5 ½ years circumventing budget sequesters, blasting through spending caps, waging illegal wars and destroying our economy. Now that we are entering an election cycle, suddenly they play like they are concerned with preserving the rights of Americans and the Constitution. Continue reading Press Release→

Libertarian Robert Marquette of Fargo announces his 2016 U.S. Senate campaign.
Robert Marquette of Fargo officially announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate today. Mr. Marquette received the Libertarian Party of North Dakota’s endorsement at their annual meeting in November of last year .
“I’m excited to be announcing my candidacy and thrilled to be part of the expanding Libertarian movement in North Dakota,” Marquette said. “The partisanship and cronyism of the major parties has crippled our political process, and this has led to a lack of real leadership in the Senate. Voters have witnessed the utter failure of the two-party system and are ready for an alternative. The Libertarian Party of North Dakota is that alternative. If elected, I will fight for sound monetary policy, I will shed light on the corruption and cronyism of the entrenched political parties, and I will always work to drastically reduce government’s influence in our lives.” Continue reading Press Release→
Many have heard Dr. Ron Paul speak about inflation as a theft of our wealth that drains the life from our economy, yet few of us understand the method or the effects of this monetary policy. But, it is absolutely crucial that every American understands how it affects our lives and how inflation is the principal driving force behind the corruption in Washington and on Wall Street.

I believe that, in today’s political climate, principles and integrity are far more important than the amount of experience a politician has participating in a broken and corrupt political system.
Washington has been bought a paid for by central bankers and special interests. No establishment politician, be they republican or democrat, and this includes John Hoeven, has the political courage to do what is necessary to reform government and Wall Street. They serve only themselves and the entities that own them. Continue reading Why Vote for Me?→
I believe that most Americans are Libertarians. However, too many don’t know this yet because there is so much confusion about what it means to be a Libertarian. Critics on the left accuse us of being heartless and selfish. But, did you know there is a Libertarian school of thought that believes the federal government should provide for the needs of the poor and helpless? Continue reading Why Vote Libertarian?→
