Tar Heel Libertarian - June 2023

Volume 3, Issue 9 | June 2023

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws." ― Ayn Rand

In this Issue... 

In our June 2023 issue, we have our best collection of articles since we started back up last September. Josh shows how insane control is in some of our institutions through an overheard conversation. Eric Rowell exposes police eschewing accountability, Justin tears apart tired analogies in 2A Talk, and Rob reflects on a year as Communications Director. We have a guest OpEd on term limits from the Forward Party, the text from a speech Jared Wall gave at the Mises Club Carolinas recent event, and a fascinating discussion with Bryce Acer in Chair Chats.

We have some hugely important events coming up soon and a new podcast. We remind you that it is about tie to decide if you want to run for office. And we have one of the most poignant and pointed takedowns exposing the direct impact ofwell-intentioned state tyranny, in our discussion with Tate Mayo, Libertarian and Mayor Of Tarboro, NC.

NC Stop Torture Now

The Libertarian Party of NC (LPNC) supports North Carolina Stop Torture Now (NCSTN) as an organization. NCSTN is holding an event which is also sponsored by LPNC.

WHAT: Vigil for Torture Accountability

WHERE: Johnston Regional Airport, home of Aero Contractors, the CIA's "torture taxi" airline

WHEN: Monday, June 26, 2023, 4:00 to 6:00 pm

WHY: June 26 is UN International Day in Solidarity with the Victims of Torture. The U.S. has never held itself accountable for its program of systematic kidnapping and torture in the so-called "war on terror." North Carolina has never acknowledged its vital role in providing pilots and planes to kidnap people and haul them to torture chambers. The CIA used Aero Contractors, its proprietary aviation company headquartered at the Johnston County Airport, for at least 49 of these kidnappings.We insist that the state investigate Aero Contractors, which may still be carrying out human rights abuses using public infrastructure.

PLAN: On June 26, 2023, we will join thousands of people across the U.S. and around the world in demanding that the U.S. close Guantanamo and hold itself accountable for the terrible acts of disappearance and torture it has committed. We will rally from 4:00 to 5:00 pm at the corner of Highway 70 and Swift Creek Road, just outside the Johnston County Airport. Then we will process with banners along Swift Creek Road to Aero Contractors' gates at the south edge of the airport.

Seeking new affiliate team members!

The LPNC affiliate team is seeking regional liaisons to assist counties or regions in becoming official affiliates of the LPNC. Liaisons are responsible for following up with local organizers, as well as keeping open communication with those already active. They serve as coordinators between local groups and the LPNC; offering guidance, sharing information and resources, and updating contact information. They should be organized, with strong communication skills, and the willingness to attend virtual, bi-weekly meetings and work collectively to give updates, resolve issues, and find new opportunities.

Meetings are every other Monday at 8 PM.

Please e-mail Kimberly Acer at [email protected] if you are interested!

Chair Chats

Each month, the Tar Heel sits down with the Chair of a county affiliate. We discuss our personal stories, humble Libertarian roots, the latest developments in that county, and what we can expect in the future. In June, we hear from Bryce Acer, Pender County Chair, about how they've had so much success in their activism, and how they plan to build on that momentum.  

Candidate Spotlight

Governor candidate Mike Ross on his experience at the Carthage Buggy Festival, and how important it is to connect with people.
