From the Phoenix: 157th Profile: Libertarian Jim Babb

Jim Babb's political bible is the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. "I intend to reacquaint the Pennsylvania legislature with the document," he says. The matter comes up regularly, as the issue that underlies all others. "I will oppose all spending not explicitly authorized by the Pennsylvania Constitution," he says.

Enemy Combatant/RIP Habeas Corpus T-Shirt

Thanks to the "Military Commissions Act of 2006" anyone can be designated an "Enemy Combatant" and stripped of their rights. While pondering the extent of this dark stain on America, I put this shirt on Cafe Press, just to let off a little steam.


The front says "Enemy Combatant", the back features a tombstone that reads: "R.I.P. Habeas Corpus 1215 - 2006."

Why keep the feds wondering, let them know where you stand. When a dictator rules, we are all EC's.

The British long ago learned how to stop pollution of their rivers. Fishing rights in British streams and rivers are a private good that can be bought and sold. For the last century, polluters have been routinely dragged into the courts by angry owners and forced to rectify any damage they may have caused.

Liberty Dollar Proponents say U.S. money is worth: "Zilch."

Is it sounder than a dollar?
Proponents of an alternative currency called Liberty Dollars say they know what U.S. money is worth: "Zilch."
By Michael Matza
Inquirer Staff Writer
CAMP HILL, Pa. - In a suburban house decorated with American flags and a pencil portrait of President Reagan, three men who call themselves patriots are waxing cranky about the United States.

Their anger begins with the Federal Reserve and its monopoly on America money.

"When the government owns the money, it controls the people. When the people own the money, they control the government," said Bert Olley, 84, a semiretired businessman whose basement office is a regional clearinghouse for the alternative currency called Liberty Dollars.

Privately minted in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, and made of silver, Liberty Dollars are a hedge against inflation because they have intrinsic value, according to the Indiana organization NORFED - the National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act and Internal Revenue Code - which began distributing them eight years ago.

Libertarian presents a real choice in 157th debate

Special thanks goes to the Chester County League of Women Voters for hosting this event.

Political variety / Candidates should face the same petition rules

White or with sauce? Super-size or personal pan? Frozen or fresh? Meat, veggie or plain? Yum, the endless alternatives! Wouldn't it be nice to have that many choices of candidates? Not a pizza's chance in a frat house of that happening, however, in Pennsylvania.

Rubley Accepts Babb's Debate Challenge, Libertarian Eager to Confront Longtime Incumbent

Babb for Pennsylvania News Release: October 2, 2006

Chester & Montgomery Counties - Voters will witness a rare and unscripted exchange between Libertarian James Babb and longtime incumbent Carole Rubley in an open debate Sunday, October 8th.

"I'm grateful to the Chester County League of Women Voters for this opportunity" said Babb. "I requested this debate because the voters in the 157th district deserve answers to some key questions:

Why are property taxes through the roof?
Why is government spending out of control?
Why has Pennsylvania been ranked one of the 10 worst states for business?

Voters deserve answers. Voters deserve alternatives."

“I will share with voters my plan to eliminate property taxes, resurrect our dismal business climate and increase education choices."

District 157, State Rep. Debate
Sponsored by the Chester County League of Women Voters
Sunday, October 8, 2006, 2:00 pm.
Easttown Library, 720 First Avenue, Berwyn, PA 19312
