I am writing today with exciting news, and hoping for your help. As a student at Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law, I am organizing a trip with about a dozen other students to work with migrants and asylum seekers at the U.S. Mexico border. The Libertarian Party has always been a leader in supporting the free movement of people, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to get these principles on the ground in March 2020.
Supporters of one of the two old tired political parties often screech that if you don't vote for their candidate that your vote is wasted. This is a fallacy. In fact voting for the underdog often has more of an impact.
In the 2019 presidential election in New Jersey there was a 540K vote difference between the two. If you had chosen to vote for one of the two corrupt parties your vote would have changed that by 0.00018%. If you were to vote democrat it would have changed their total by 0.0000046%. If you were to vote republican it would have changed their total by 0.0000062%
HAMILTON — Township cops historically removed bras and subjected female prisoners to improper strip searches until a woman filed an explosive lawsuit resulting in a large settlement payout, a Hamilton police source alleged.

Donald Trump's latest comments directed at congresswomen he doesn't like ("go back to where you came from") puts me in mind of remarks made by politicians of the past.
I'm old enough to remember Richard Nixon, his Vice President Spiro Agnew, and Alabama Gov. George Wallace saying similar things about anti-Vietnam War protesters and college students in the late 1960's and early 1970's when I had just started high school.
Back then the slogan against dissent was "America, love it or leave it."
Tema: Sostenemos que los derechos humanos no deben ser negados o abreviados en función de la nacionalidad o el origen nacional. El derecho a viajar libremente entre Estados y naciones es un derecho fundamental. Los humanos deben ser libres de abandonar regímenes tiránicos. Los empleados, empleadores y contratistas deben tener la libertad de negociar sin interferencias ni restricciones gubernamentales.
Principio: Nos oponemos a las restricciones estatales de inmigración, ya sea con el propósito de cooperar con restricciones federales o de otra manera. Nos oponemos firmemente a todas las medidas que castigan a los empleadores que contratan a trabajadores indocumentados. El estado no tiene ningún negocio que regule las interacciones productivas y voluntarias entre las partes que dan su consentimiento.
Transición: A los no ciudadanos indocumentados no se les debe negar la libertad fundamental de trabajar o moverse sin impedimentos. Nos oponemos a los pagos de asistencia social del gobierno a los no ciudadanos, al igual que nos oponemos a los pagos de asistencia social a todas las demás personas.
I have to chuckle to myself when I see all the pro-choice people getting upset over some of the recent abortion restrictions enacted by states across the country. Why are they not pro-freedom on other issues?

America’s endless Middle Eastern wars have become politically sustainable as a result of millions of dollars in donations to virulent hate-groups with strong deep state ties from establishment foundations.
Americans increasingly view Muslims as a threat to their security, especially Republicans. According to a Pew Charitable Forum survey in 2017, 65 percent of Republicans believe there is a "natural conflict between Islam and democracy." Amusingly, 56 percent of Americans polled by CivicScience in 2019 said American students should not be required to learn Arabic numerals (i.e.: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0) as part of their educational curriculum. A 2018 Chapman University poll noted that – although prejudice against Muslims had fallen somewhat between 2016 and 2018 – more than 60 percent of Republicans believed"Muslims are more likely to engage in terrorist activity than non-Muslims" and nearly 40 percent said America should end immigration from all Muslim countries.

As nefarious as people want 3D-printed guns to look, there is another side of the story entirely.
What if everything you thought about 3D-printed guns was wrong?
I know what you’re thinking. How is this article different from the 50+ articles written beforehand? Well, how many of those journalists do you think consulted with someone who spends a decent amount of their time 3D-printing guns?As nefarious as people want 3D-printed guns to look, there is another side of the story entirely. How many inaccuracies do you think they have written considering most of them know little to nothing about guns, never mind 3D-printing and other technologies? To avoid this dangerous journalistic trend (and to avoid looking ignorant about guns), I contacted New Jersey's "most wanted" anonymous Twitter account, @IvanTheTroll12, about the nature of 3D-printed guns in the United States.

On June 3, 2018, the communities surrounding Guatemala's Mount Fuego were devastated by the volcano's eruption. An estimated 1.7 million were affected with displacement after a modest recovery from the mudslides affecting the area two years previously. The human interest aspects to the destruction's story brought Guatemala into focus and some discussion surrounding its plan for relief and recovery. Now, as 2018 closes, a similar situation has occurred yet again for the citizens who have started their lives over. The focus of the human spirit triumphing over harsh circumstances shows much bravery but is only part of a (tired) story we witness repeatedly.
Although Guatemala is a beautiful country with potential, the economy has struggled despite a healthy GDP averaging over 60 billion USD between 2015-2018. The neighboring countries of El Salvador and Honduras, in contrast, averaged 23 billion and 21 billion, respectively. President Morales inherited an inflation rate of ~ 2.4% but rose to remain steady around 4%. Despite long-term pledges of equality, the wealth distribution of the country has remained skewed with more than half of the population below the poverty line and the indigenous population most sharply affected. Nor have Morales' campaign platforms of ending malnutrition and steadying employment made significant social impact. This culminated with protests for his resignation a few months ago after UN corruption investigations arose.
After a more than four-year investigation, a former member of the Bound Brook Borough (Somerset County) Council was tentatively fined $100 by the New Jersey Local Finance Board (LFB) for voting in favor of a resolution which designated a redeveloper for a Main Street property while her in-laws owned that property and her husband, who currently sits as a Borough Council member, had an interest in a business located on that property.
In his August 2, 2018 article, "Why did Rutgers pay fired AD Julie Hermann $500K more than she was owed?" Star-Ledger reporter Keith Sargeant wrote about Rutgers' refusal to provide him with the university's separation agreement with former Athletic Director Julie Hermann. After reading the article, I had my non-profit submit an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request for the separation agreement and then sued when Rutgers denied the request.
