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?

A Petition against Discrimination: PragerU vs Google

Discrimination comes in many forms. One of which is the modern social media giants such as Facebook and Google prohibiting reasonable voices — not hateful, not exploitive, not violent — from having fair and necessary access to their platforms due to deviation from the “politically correct” agenda of Silicon Valley and the Progressive Left.

If you doubt that the media giants are abusing their power and posing a threat to our democracy, consider the case of Google’s restrictions on Prager University (PragerU), an organization that produces engaging five-minute videos on ideas that are libertarian, classical liberal, and conservative.

Balanced Budget Amendment: The Blunt-Force Instrument We Need

A balanced budget amendment (BBA) is the blunt-force instrument we need in order to get Congress and the President to do that which they will never do themselves:  Confront, debate, and decide our priorities, our resources, and our limits.

Just because the fiscally hypocritical Republicans in the House voted for the BBA this week after passing a disgraceful spending bill last month does not make the BBA a bad idea.  And just because the fiscally irresponsible Democrats predictably voted against the BBA likewise does not make the BBA a bad idea.

The BBA is a good and necessary idea.  It is a check-and-balance that we must add to the Constitution to protect the dispersed public against the entrenched politicians; to protect ourselves against the growing risk of a debt crisis and financial reckoning; to protect future generations of Americans from the current.
