Leftist-statist fascism is in the news daily and there is no more non-tolerant place than American college campuses. These left leaning institutions have always supported state control of the economy and redistribution policy however, since the 2016 election, the statists have moved to a proscription against speech and freedom of association.
This contagion has spread beyond the traditional east and west coast statist bastions to small lower tier educational institutions in the Midwest.
spoke of a situation that could have been reported in 1930s Nazi Germany. This story is upsetting to any freedom loving American but it gets worse. There is a strong move among these same statists to create an economic crisis by not paying their obligations and then, get taxpayers to foot the bill for their obligated student loan debt.

To correct this we must remove the state from any and all influence in higher education and enforce the rights expressed in the US Constitution. Failure to do so will result in a loss of freedom and a very large tax bill to bailout students by paying off their debt.
The days of freedom are fading fast in America. Our access to information will be further filtered by the government via a statist supported corporation. Lest you believe this libertarian is over reacting, please consider the announcement by Google today.
What any freedom loving American should be afraid of is the following:
The review teams — comprised of contractors known as “quality raters” — already comb through websites and other content to flag questionable items such as pornography. Google added “upsetting-offensive” in its latest guidelines for quality raters. Google declined to comment on the changes, which were reported in the blog Search Engine Land and elsewhere.
This begs the question, who decides what is “upsetting-offensive”? One will have to be quite naïve to think the new filters will not favor statist information and positions over facts and free thought given Google’s connections with the state. Look at this dated article and shudder, it is likely even more connected to the state today. In a old 2010 piece on techeye.net, the links between Google and the state are immense.
Some background. Google’s DC office contains 30 employees, nine of whom are registered lobbyists. In addition to this, Google has hired six to seven lobbying firms. Four management-level Google employees have accepted positions within the Obama Administration, and Eric Schmidt, CEO, and John Doerr, Board Member, served as Obama appointees on a key advisory board.
Given this, please support libertarian candidates even if they are lacking in purity.
