Rick Vandeven is the best candidate (10/28/10)
After watching the Missouri 8th District congressional debates, it is obvious there is only one candidate who is truly dedicated to peace, prosperity and the next generation: Rick Vandeven, Libertarian Party.

An independent can win (10/28/10)
Can an underdog independent congressional candidate win a general election? Actually, it has happened before in the 8th District.

Libertarian Party's positions (10/28/10)
Missouri Libertarian Party takes positions on statewide ballot initiatives:Constitutional Amendment 1: Oppose. While it does not seem illogical, in principle, that counties with a charter form of government elect their county assessor, an amendment to the Constitution with language that exempts "counties with a population between 600,001-699,999" specifically to exempt Jackson County strikes us as absurd. ...
Tommy Sowers will fight for us (10/28/10)

Sowers is battle-tested (10/28/10)

A real job creator (10/28/10)

Where Did You Come From? (10/28/10)
This Axis Deer wandered through our yard one morning this week. I thought I was seeing things. I knew it was not a fawn, but what was it?
