RIP Bob Parry

Bob Parry was a former good friend of the show. I had him on at least 18 times. (I can’t help but think there were more that got lost somehow.) He was actually one of the first guests when I started the daily show, Antiwar Radio, for KAOS 95.9 FM in Austin in 2007. I cussed him out and didn’t speak to him any more after he wrote some stupid bullshit about libertarians a few years ago, but I never stopped running him or his best guys at Antiwar.com since Bob’s journalism could not be beat. He was really great on so many things, especially Syria and Russia issues these past few years, including the coup in Ukraine in 2014.

Here his son Nat has a tremendous write up on Bob’s heroic legacy in journalism. It’s really worth your time.

There. Now live up to his example.

What is the Libertarian Institute?

The newly-created Libertarian Institute features Scott Horton, Will Grigg, Sheldon Richman, and Jared Labell. It is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization formed in association with TaxpayerEducation Foundation. All donations are fully tax-deductible.

What is our goal?

Our goal is to unite the libertarian movement and more importantly to realign American politics around our agenda — prioritizing opposition to the worst of state power: the permanent war state, the prison and police states, and the corporate welfare, corrupt contracts, and bank bailouts that rig the economy for the wealthy and politically connected.

Thank you for all your excitement and support! It really means a lot to us. Let’s see what we can do to convince Americans to care about freedom!

Thank You From a Military Officer

Scott,

I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart as you have changed my life for the better.  Today I resigned my commission in the United States Army as I can no longer be part of a death machine that does no good for any part of a peaceful, productive society.  Your website and podcast have turned me from a vengeful, war loving person to a man of peaceful voluntarism.  I cannot thank you enough as you have made me a better person, thus making me a better husband, father, and human.

I became a Christian before a libertarian and was still the typical American Christian.  One that says I like peace but at the same time supporting the killing of innocents in horrible, unnecessary conflicts that spend money we don’t have and kill people we have no business killing.  I found your site and podcasts, along with Lew Rockwell and Mr. Tom Woods, and I became a Christian that is a libertarian.  I am so thankful for the work you have done and my life has been changed in ways that benefit me more than I can ever express. Your interviews with former military members and conscientious objectors gave me the confidence that there are others out there like me and they are living a free and happy life!

In fact, I am in the process of becoming a Paramedic as penance for my time hurting people.  I read your site every day and I share it with others often.  You are one of my heroes for your consistent views and sacrifice for what you believe.  I hope to be able to help others as you have helped me.  By the way, your website is blocked on government computers so you must have them scared.

I feel a weight is lifted off my shoulders as the dichotomy of my views is no longer.  I thank you so much and look forward to spending my time with my children and living my life as free as possible.  Thank you and I am anxiously awaiting your book!

Sincerely,
Jason
