Tar Heel Libertarian - January 2024

Volume 3, Issue 15 | January 2024

“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.” ― John Adams, The works of John Adams (Second President of the United States)

In this Issue... 

Happy New Year! We at the Tar Heel Libertarian hope all of our readers had a peaceful, refreshing, and energizing holidays, as we are expecting big things this year! In our January 2024 issue, we highlight a first-of-its-kind Gubernatorial debate featuring LPNC candidates Shannon Bray and Mike Ross, as well as candidates from three other parties, live and on stage. We also hear directly from three of our own excellent candidates this edition. 

In our regular columns, Ryan paints a realistic picture of the path we follow when we eschew Liberty. It is not a catastrophic collapse, but a slow descent into stagnation, until the foundation of freedom on which we have accomplished so many great things crumbles away completely. This is reinforced in articles from Joshua Glawson, Rob Yates, and a talk given by Jp Cortez for LPMeck and shared with you. Trevor Miles looks at the pain of constant war financing, and Justin Hinkley finishes off the articles with some positive news, looking at 2A victories in recent decades.

Finally, convention is coming up, including another gubernatorial grilling, and we have lots of good stuff for sale in the LPNC online store, as well as from your fellow Libertarians. We close this issue bringing back the popular book review column.
