Want a “Good Republican?” Vote Libertarian.


    Freedom, Indiana Author Andrew Horning is the Libertarian Party of Indiana’s candidate for Indiana’s US Senate seat in 2024.

    As a Libertarian, I’m no part of the Hatfield/McCoy, Republican v Democrat, divide-and-conquer puppet show we’ve been playing since WWII.  So it does me no harm to say that, even here in Indiana, where Republicans are increasingly indistinguishable from Democrats, there are good Republicans, and good Democrats.  None of them are in federal office, of course.  We have nobody like Thomas Massie of KY, or Justin Amash of MI.  Why?  Because through the last several Indiana GOP primaries, all the best GOP candidates (you know, the ones not called RINOs), lose in our embarrassingly expensive, corrupting and pre-scripted primary elections, to candidates approved by the puppet masters we were warned about by our founders, Truman, Eisenhower, JFK, and all the smart people in-between and since.

    For example, promising newcomers like Charles Bookwalter, a strong constitutionalist, so good he could even be a Libertarian, lost to the crony establishment.  The only constitutionalist federal officeholder Indiana has had in a hundred years, John Hostettler, also lost to the status quo.  Numerous other, excellent candidates, like nationally-known economist Dr. Eric Schansberg, have been brushed away by rules changes and smoky room shenanigans over the years.  In other words, our best and brightest tend to lose Primary Elections to the politics all voters claim to hate, but keep reelecting nonetheless.

    So now, every single member of Indiana’s delegation to DC has voted against individual rights, property, privacy, sane economics, and national interests; and voted to fund, train and arm every side of every conflict on the planet; voted to destabilize foreign governments and create enemies everywhere; and voted to increase the size and cost and Big Brother powers of their military, monetary, NGO, corporate and intelligence agency puppet masters.  They’ve voted us onto the edge of simultaneous societal, economic and moral collapse, as well as the very real potential for WWIII.  Every one of them.  No exceptions.

    While my book, “Relighting the Torch” goes into much more detail on the problems, and offers the proven solutions that have always been ours for the taking, the short answer is that We The People have all the power to fix all of this.  But we have to want to.  When we really want to, we will change how we’ve been wielding our weapons of peaceful revolution – our votes.  …If we still have elections.

    The most important, actionable words in our once-cherished Declaration of Independence are, “…that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.  But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    I hope we have suffered enough of our government’s long train of abuses and usurpations that we’re ready to invoke our right, and duty, to throw off such government.

    It’s time for Hoosiers to vote the way we talk.  That means that anti-war, pro-individual liberty Democrats, as well as sound money, sound economy, small-government Republicans, need to vote Libertarian.  Let’s talk.

    Liberty or Bust!

    1. One need only look at the Vanderburgh GOP clique and the pro-Israel Pacs’ 3 million dollars spent to defeat Hostettler to see the truth in Horning’s article.
