We believe in the American heritage of liberty, enterprise, and personal responsibility.

Reminder: Rally to protest mass surveillance in D.C. Saturday, Oct. 26, will feature Gov. Gary Johnson

The heroic revelations made by whistleblower Edward Snowden have let the world know: The NSA is watching you and has undermined the fabric of the Internet. Its overreaching surveillance creates a climate of fear, chills free speech, and violates our basic human rights — your Fourth Amendment right to privacy.
But a movement is building to change all this.

The Libertarian Party was among the first groups to join a growing coalition of organizations operating under the umbrella Stop Watching Us, which aims to stop the National Security Agency's (NSA) mass surveillance of Americans.
The coalition will hold a rally in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 26, 2013, on the 12th anniversary of the signing of the Patriot Act. Thousands of people from across the political spectrum are expected to unite in Washington, D.C., to demand: Stop watching us.

Speakers at the rally will include 2012 Libertarian presidential candidate Gov. Gary Johnson. A march before the rally, music, and other festivities are planned for the day.
Show your determination to stop government surveillance and come to Washington, D.C., on Oct. 26. For more details about the rally, visit: https://rally.stopwatching.us/

Speech & Book Signing on “In Defense of Chaos”

Speech/Book Signing by L.K. Samuels
“In Defense of Chaos”

Saturday May 11, 2013
Starting at 3:00 PM
Bay Park Hotel: 1425 Munras Ave., Monterey, CA
Upstairs in the White Horse Room
Introduction by Prof. David R. Henderson
FREE to the Public (Includes Wine and Cheese Reception)

Chaos gets a bad rap. Few people realize that without the dynamics of chaos, order would not exist. In fact, nothing would exist. Without chaos there would be no creation, no structure and no existence. After all, order is merely the repetition of patterns; chaos is the process that establishes those patterns.
The newly revealed importance of chaos theory is that it provides the scientific evidence that shows why open-ended, chaos-driven systems are far superior to inflexible, closed-ended systems, including command-and-control political systems.

BIO: L.K. Samuels’ 420-page book In Defense of Chaos: The Chaology of Politics, Economics and Human Action was released by Cobden Press in April of 2013. Samuels is also the editor and a contributing author of Facets of Liberty, an anthology of political and economic writings from 1969 to 2009, and winner of the 2007 Karl Bray Memorial Award. His historical novel about 17th Century Ireland – Ferret: The Reluctant King — won “Honorable Mention” at the East of Eden Writers Conference held in Salinas in 2002. Samuels was elected Chair to the Project Area Committee (PAC) in 2008, a citizens committee to advise the Seaside Redevelopment Agency and the city of Seaside over eminent domain issues.
