Cody Wilson is a well known (in some circles) 30-year-old gun rights activist. Many know him as the 3D printed gun guy. He runs a company called Defense Distributed – they produce files that help individuals with the 3D printing of weapons. As you can imagine, he and his company are not popular with the government (or anti-weapon people). Continue reading “Let’s Talk About Cody Wilson”
So, I was stewing on this during the Libertarian National Convention and I wanted to reflect on it by articulating my mixed feelings about some stuff.

A number of people have been requesting for a while that I make a Patreon. It’s a weird thing for me, to request money from random folks rather than direct clients, but I do appreciate that having a place for … Continue reading I’ve Created A Patreon
“On Tuesday, 59 million people voted for Donald Trump and made him our President-elect. Did they do it because they’re racist? They hate women? Immigrants? Free trade? Taxes? The Hollywood elite?

One who would like to lower taxes, legalize cannabis, have a non-interventionist foreign policy, bring troops home, support a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage, … Continue reading Neither Clinton Nor Trump Is An Option To This Millennial
“The right to end one’s life is a profound and intimate consideration.

However, there are many individuals enduring immense suffering and excruciating pain, for whom things will not be getting better, and for whom death is a welcome end. For those, the right to painlessly end their suffering, to be under … Continue reading Terminally Ill Woman Throws Party Before Assisted Suicide
“I found this case particularly clear cut as a libertarian — this was an obvious case of over-regulation, which caused more than half of the clinics in Texas to close. If any other industry faced this sort of punitive regulation, conservatives would have been up in arms, but since it was the abortion industry, many were perfectly fine with the law.” Read more at The Libertarian Republic.
