The Mayor Found Drunk and Naked
A Former Mayor Hauled Off to Prison
A County Exec Nabbed in an FBI Sting
‘‘People always ask me how I spent my time in prison, and I say, ‘I just read a lot,'" Jerry tells me as we trundle along the Jersey City streets in his Volvo. "They would get you any book you asked for, so I ended up reading every title on the New York Times bestseller list," he explains with the tone of satisfaction one might detect in somebody who feels they've gotten a really good deal.
It's an overcast afternoon in northern New Jersey, just across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan, and we're driving towards the prep school where Jerry now coaches boys track.
We pull up to the curb and he suggests we get out and chat on the sidewalk. Parked illegally, he proclaims "I don't get parking tickets" in his north Jersey accent before springing from the driver's seat.

Former Congressman Bob Barr recently appeared on Fox's Hannity & Colmes. At about 3:20 into the clip below, Hannity asks, "Would you vote to legalize heroin and crack?" Barr, agitated by the question, answered, "No, I would not vote to legalize heroin and crack!"
Undoubtedly, Barr supporters will say it is because Barr wants to focus on the bigger issue of getting the federal government out of the drug war. Hopefully, Barr opponents will see that the bigger issue is that Barr has not fully embraced the non-initiation of force principle of the Libertarian Party.
Libertarians and liberty lovers of all stripes will gather in Gilford, New Hampshire in June for the 5th annual Porcupine Freedom (and Music) Festival (aka PorcFest).
As the premier event of the Free State Project (FSP), PorcFest welcomes pro-liberty activists from across the nation to see why New Hampshire was selected by FSP’s membership to be the destination for those who are willing to work effectively in a concentrated effort towards “Liberty in Our Lifetime.”
From the Internet Freedom Coalition:
On November 19, 2002, the first official warning was issued by "powerful computer and Internet companies" that if Congress did not regulate the Internet, it would fall prey to network providers that would block access to Internet sites, or abuse their market power by slowing online content of competitors to a crawl.
As this footage shows, Hillary is truly a brave American Hero. In true Rambo style, she endured gunfire and bombing without showing any fear whatsoever. Others have claimed that she lied about it, but this footage clearly shows the danger she was under.
Congressional Quarterly Inc, has ranked New Jersey as number 7 of the best states to live.
However few NJ residents are finding it affordable to live here. The National Taxpayer's Union has determined that NJ residents work until May 7th just to pay their taxes. This places NJ as the 2nd worst state in the Union (just behind Connecticut).
The citizens of New Jersey are being subject to over-taxation and over-regulation while our civil liberties are disappearing.
The actions of our state government are chasing business out of the state. Those who can afford to get out are leaving as fast as they can. Our state population is evolving to include only the poor and the very rich.
In the name of security our liberties are being stripped away. Our Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable searches are being taken away in the name of fighting drugs.
Fortunately however, NJ citizens are waking up! Our legislature must act quickly to drastically reduce the size of state government and make doing business in NJ more profitable for the small business person and individuals alike. Returning to business as normal is not an option.
What can the NJLP do to help? Absolutely nothing without YOU. Get involved! Run for office, write letters to the editor, join the party, donate, write for the newsletter, write for this website, or come up with your own way to help! We are looking for candidates to run at all levels.
Now that Ron Paul's presidential campaign is winding down many of his supporters are looking for a place to turn. Both the Libertarian Party and the Constitution party share similar beliefs.
In response to members of the Constitution party claiming Ron Paul supporters should join them I've put together a matrix of many of those beliefs in comparison to Ron Paul's stances.
Despite the budget problem, our legislature is finding lots of money to throw around. They continue to expand the size and cost of NJ government. If we ran our own house like this we would soon be in big trouble.
Notable recent bills include:
The Libertarian Party's Response to the State of the Union Address
The following is a response by Libertarian Party National Chairman William Redpath
Washington, D.C. - Following President Bush's annual State of the Union Address, the Libertarian Party issued their response from National Chairman William Redpath:
It is of utmost importance that we all attend as many of the Corzine Big Government Love Fests that we can. Even if you don't ask questions you can sit in the audience and make oinking sounds! Call, write, and/or meet with Corzine and your state legislator and let them know that you demand cuts in the size of NJ state government.
This past Saturday, Steve Lonegan was peacefully handing out flyers and holding a sign outside of one of Corzine's rally in Cape May. He was arrested, shackled, and charged with trespassing!
After many years of overspending by both Republican and Democratic administrations, NJ state finds itself in a fiscal mess. Instead of tackling the root cause of a bloated state government, our governor has launched a plan to transfer debt and to squeeze more money out of the taxpayers.
A proposed student pledge at the BCC would require students to promise to give up their right to freedom of association and freedom of conscience.
From our friends at the NRA:
Assemblyman Anthony Chiappone (D-31) is following in the footsteps of former legislators who proposed ending fishing and hunting in New Jersey by removing sportsmen and farmers from the New Jersey Fish & Game Council, thus creating a non-lethal committee within the council to deal with so-called “wildlife conflicts.”
Congressman, Presidential candidate, and former Libertarian Presidential candidate Ron Paul has been attacked by many. Several have tried to pin the "racist" tag on him.
Nelson Linder, president of the Austin National Association of Colored People during an interview with Alex Jones has stated, "Knowing Ron Paul's intent, I think he is trying to improve this country but I think also, when you talk about the Constitution and you constantly criticize the federal government versus state I think a lot of folks are going to misconstrue that....so I think it's very easy for folks who want to to take his position out of context and that's what I'm hearing," said Linder.
"Knowing Ron Paul and having talked to him, I think he's a very fair guy I just think that a lot of folks do not understand the Libertarian platform"
According to an article on PolitickerNJ.com, our past Senate candidate, conservative libertarian, and Ron Paul supporter Murray Sabrin is considering a run for Senate as a Republican. See article "Ron Paul supporter ready to enter U.S. Senate race".
