Thank You!

I wanted to give a quick thank-you to my supporters and followers. In a tough day for minor parties and independents across Maryland, my own campaign did well. I’ve been honored to receive your support. I’ve striven in all that I’ve done in the campaign to make you, my supporters, proud by remaining true to my principles and civil in my demeanor.

Make a Difference: My Campaign & My Endorsements!

We’re down to the final weekend before election day. If you’re supporting my campaign and me, I’d ask that you also let your friends and family know about my campaign, so that they might consider adding their support… their votes!… to yours. For which, this flyer summarizes my message and provides an organized set of links to my videos and my statements on the issues.

Please share and use the flyer as you see fit!

But besides promoting my own campaign, I wanted to share that for the first time in my life, consistent with my constant encouragement for EVERYONE to think and vote different so that we can escape the appalling polarization of modern two-party politics, I myself will be voting for a mix of Libertarians, Democrats, Republicans, and Independents on Tuesday. From which mix, I want to give a few endorsements.

Endorsement from Gov. Bill Weld

I’m honored to announce my endorsement by Bill Weld, who is the former governor of Massachusetts; was the 2016 VP candidate for the Libertarian Party (LP); and is a leading candidate for the 2020 presidential nomination for the LP.

In his endorsement, Gov. Weld said, “Maryland deserves a voice in Congress who will stand for sustainable health care, restrained foreign policy, and a balanced federal budget. One candidate in the 3rd congressional district will do just that. I’m proud to endorse David Lashar for Congress.”

Might the Elusive Libertarian Moment be upon Us?

Pundits have long been predicting a “libertarian moment” in which the ideas of individual liberty and accountable government become predominant in society and politics.

That moment has yet to arrive.  To some minds, it has already passed. To others, it was never to be.

But with both the Democratic and Republican parties riven by faction and captive to their zealots, bringing us polarization and dysfunction in Washington, might not we be approaching a moment in which the stubborn political duopoly finally totters and falls?

Why I Left the Left – An Expression of Libertarian Ideas

In Why I Left the Left, Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report explains his abandonment of the modern Progressive left due to its regressive agenda and its oppressive behavior.  Rubin does not describe himself as a libertarian; he describes himself a classical liberal and free thinker.  But he expresses the libertarian case…

“Do you believe in free speech? Do you believe that people should be judged by their character, not their skin color? Do you believe in freedom of religion? If you believe these things, you’re probably not a progressive…

George Will’s Libertarian Evolution

Interview in 2013 with George Will on his evolution to the libertarian philosophy.  “I’ve lived in Washington now for 44 years, and that’s a lot of folly to witness up close,” says Washington Post columnist George Will. “Whatever confidence and optimism I felt towards the central government when I got here on January 1, 1970 has pretty much dissipated at the hands of the government.”
