Dismantling Political Labels

Muir Boda – Libertarian Candidate for Congress in Maryland’s 1st District

As we approach Election Day, I thought it appropriate to take a look at the definitions of the political philosophies that are prominent in our society.

Historically we have attributed the Democratic Party to the idea of liberalism. Here is how Webster defines liberalism.

lib·er·al·ism:

b : a theory in economics emphasizing individual freedom from restraint and usually based on free competition, the self-regulating market, and the gold standard

c : a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties; specifically : such a philosophy that considers government as a crucial instrument for amelioration of social inequities (as those involving race, gender, or class).

On the other side of the aisle we have attributed conservatism to the Republican Party. Here is Webster’s definition of conservatism.

con·ser·va·tism:

a : disposition in politics to preserve what is established

b : a political philosophy based on tradition and social stability, stressing established institutions, and preferring gradual development to abrupt change; specifically : such a philosophy calling for lower taxes, limited government regulation of business and investing, a strong national defense, and individual financial responsibility for personal needs (as retirement income or health-care coverage)

 What is interesting is watching how these two political parties govern. Democrats certainly do not represent a self-regulating free market or advocate for the gold standard. They also have not represented or defended civil liberties very well as we continue drone strikes, the implementation of the NDAA and the Patriot Act.

Republicans did little to preserve the liberties and freedoms that existed by supporting the abrupt change of government policy by passing the Patriot Act and NDAA. However, they are sticking to their conservative roots by preserving these atrocious policies.

Both political parties have essentially become conservative. They both continue working to preserve the failed policies of war, political corruption by rewarding their backers with bailouts and loopholes in regulations and taxes, as well the simple fact that neither party has worked to reduce the debt, the deficit and reform Social Security and Medicare.

Now let’s take a look at Webster’s definition of a Libertarian.

lib·er·tar·i·an

1: an advocate of the doctrine of free will

2a : a person who upholds the principles of individual liberty especially of thought and action

 If true Libertarians are elected to Congress, I can assure you that authentic and original liberal policies will be pursued and once achieved a conservative mindset of preserving those achievements would be implemented.

End all the wars. Bring home our troops. Repeal the Patriot Act, the NDAA and stop the senseless and immoral drone strikes. Reform our tax system by eliminating the IRS, payroll taxes, corporate taxes, capital gains taxes and death taxes and replace it with 10%-15% consumption tax. Balance the federal budget with a 43% cut in government spending. Get the government out of the private sector and let self-regulation of the free market work. We need to return to the gold standard and end the Federal Reserve System.

We must become Liberal to become Conservative. To achieve freedom and prosperity, being Libertarian is the only answer.

So this election, join me and Be Libertarian.

Reject the two party system, Be Libertarian

With recent events in the 1st District Congressional race leaving only two legitimate candidates on the ballot, incumbent Republican Andy Harris, and myself, many feel that the race is over and that Congressman Harris is all but assured a second term. So confident he does not see the need to show up at scheduled forums, which he had previously agreed to attend.

Harris has more money, an entrenched political machine, staff, volunteers and consultants.

So you may ask, who do you have Boda? The answer is you.

Congressman Harris represents the PACs, the bundlers and the establishment and the over $1 Million he has raised for this campaign.

I represent you.

We have an opportunity in this election to send a message to the Establishment of both parties. You can tell them that you will no longer continue to waste your vote on deficit spending, increasing the National Debt, never ending wars and the constant growth of government involvement in our lives.

Join me and reject the two party system. For one election Be Libertarian with me. If after one term you feel I do not represent you, then you can always vote Harris or another Democrat back in office.

If I am elected and all of my concerns about debt, war, civil liberties and the need for reform in Medicare and social security are unfounded, what happens? Nothing.

If I am not elected and there is nobody to voice these concerns and they are true, what happens? Nothing good.

Muir Boda Press Release on Wendy Rosen’s Withdrawal from Congressional Race

September 10, 2012

Muir Boda – Libertarian Candidate for Congress in Maryland’s 1st District

Today it was announced that Democrat Wendy Rosen would be resigning as the Democrat’s Nominee in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District at the request of the Democratic Party of Maryland. It has been alleged that Mrs. Rosen was registered to vote in both Maryland and in the State of Florida and allegedly voted in both states during that period of time. If true, then there should be serious consequences for those actions.

The Libertarian Candidate in the 1st District, Muir Boda, stated, “I do wish to commend the Democratic Party of Maryland for taking proactive steps in this matter. The integrity of our elections is paramount in the democratic process and it is unfortunate that this was not discovered sooner. It is even more unfortunate that anyone would seek office at any level of government and have violated election laws in such a manner, if in fact the allegations are true.

Though not the way I was hoping to be able to provide an alternative to the two major parties, this does provide us with an opportunity. We will now be directly competing with incumbent Congressman Andy Harris for the votes of moderate Democrats, Libertarian Republicans and Independents. Though we may not agree with Democrats on some issues, I believe we can sway votes by focusing on ending the wars, defending civil liberties and educating many on the advantages of free markets in addressing many of the issues that government has failed at regulating.
