Glenn Beck: "America's founding fathers were Libertarian"

Glenn Beck, the #3 rated talk show host in America, is ON fire!

In my opinion he has become as relevant to America's Revolution as Ron Paul. This morning I heard him say that while the MSM will often try to pin a label on Libertarians as kooks, our Founding Fathers WERE Libertarians!

This Friday at 4pm, Americans will gather at Meet-Ups across the country for Glenn Beck's event called "We Surround Them". Indy's event is in Fishers. You should go! I promise it will put the fire in you, if it's not there already.

The Libertarian Party, founded in David Nolan's living room in 1971 by disillusioned Republicans and Democrats, is the philosophical backbone needed to guide America's long overdue Second Revolution.

Imagine if David Nolan did nothing and we were stuck with two corrupt parties that enabled this mess we are in. Would we have the American voice of Liberty we have all around us today?

I was Democrat because I thought that party was about letting people live in freedom and peace to be who they are as an individual. I definitely learned that was not true.

And the Republicans, while I liked the platform of small government and fiscal prudence they promised, did not DO smaller government. They also let fundamentalist judgmental Christians hijack things, which gave the Republicans a bad name with socially liberal types.

The Libertarian Party was just right for me, even if they are the underdog! It is in the American DNA to root for the underdog. American literature and film often champions the seemingly powerless underdog who, because of our RIGHT to be free, overcomes obstacles to win victory over evil oppression. Don't we just love Erin Brokovich? Those are usually the most heartwarming of stories told.

In a nutshell, the Libertarians champion personal freedom, small government, and the rule of law applied equally to all. They don't care if you are rich, poor, gay, straight, black, or white. They care about doing Our Constitution as written. And you know, the Constitution was written by religious men.

The history of the LP is enlightening, especially when you consider how far the Party has come in such a short blip of time in America's history.

Read up on LP history, then consider coming to our many social events which are held at different locales around Indy. It's ok to come even if you belong to another party. You won't be pressured to join. Just come have some food and drink, know you will be welcomed, never judged. You will meet plenty of other Liberty minded patriots and learn more about the important role we play in the Great Second Revolution of America, as we continue to do our part to protect the principles our Founding Fathers so thoughtfully gave us.

The next Libertarian Social is on March 25th. It's the evening of the Revolt At The State House event. You can RSVP now on the Meet Up page. We typically have at least 20 people attend and there is always some one new to welcome! Some of our best activists are born at these socials.
