Thank you to everyone who contributed to this issue, including some outstanding liberty candidates who are launching their campaigns in our paper. I hope the intelligent readers of The Liberty Voice will find at least one candidate that they can and will support in these important races.

I bought in to the madness of 2008 – the belief that electing a young new Democrat from the Senate might, just maybe, this time, change things for good. He had the ground support and momentum, which I was a part of, and he even spoke like he understood what the majority of Americans were going through. After eight years of blatant criminal leadership in the White House, we all thought that maybe this time, the Washington insiders would hear us loud and clear, and our collective hope for change would be realized.
Fast forward to the present day, when our new President has sat in the top powerhouse of this country’s government for a year. Some people under-stand that all government, no matter what the level, is a slow-moving process, but there are undoubtedly signs from the past 365 days that the American people’s hopes for change have been usurped again. As has always been the case in the two-party system, when we “throw the bums out”, so to speak, every two to four years, we really are just changing the mask on a deceitful, corporate beast. As Ralph Nader said in 2008, Barack Obama is just as corporate as George W. Bush, from “A to Z”.
A glimpse at his three big “accomplishments” of the past year shows us that indeed, to paraphrase The Who, the new boss is the same as the old boss, and we have been fooled again.
