American Libertarians & more

At least they get media coverage - virtually impossible in Finland where there are maybe a handful of libertarians/classical liberals:

"Loretta Nall, the Libertarian Party's write-in candidate for governor of Alabama, is campaigning on her cleavage and hoping that voters will eventually focus on her platform."

"Her campaign is offering T-shirts and marijuana stash boxes adorned with a photo of her with a plunging neckline and the words: 'More of these boobs.'"

Cato released their study "Fiscal Policy Report Card on America's Governors" which grades American governors according to their fiscal policies. As you might guess, Cato appreciates governors who cut taxes and spending. Something similar is needed in Finland but unfortunately there isn't such hostility toward taxes and spending here as there is in America.

Check my over a month old article on 9/11 conspiracies. Sorry my non-Finnish readers but the article is only in Finnish. I, of course, don't believe in any conspiracies.

I also started writing for World Community, a "multicultural" effort to bring a bunch of people together to write about world issues. The blog was started only a few months ago so take a look. Here's my take on China/Smash Asem (from 24th of this month).

Check for up-to-date information on how the US midterm elections are coming along.

Edit: Oh and Happy Halloween! I know I'm a few hours late and we really don't celebrate Halloween in Finland. I celebrate Halloween simply by watching a Halloween episode of "Millennium" tv serie.

I'm not so sure if it's good when marijuana is basically represented as the first priority of liberalism. Ignorant people get scared. Smokers already know that yellow is the way to go, others should be impressed with something else. Getting some shit legalized isn't going to be that easy, and the first thing to do is to get people realize how ridiculous the American 'war on drugs' is. Waving a hemp flag is not a good way to start.
