Fiscally Responsible, Socially Tolerant: Meet Rodger Paxton PDF Print E-mail
Written by Arkansas Free Press Staff   

Rodger Paxton, Chair of the Arkansas Libertarian Party, rushing from a meeting to his hotel says politely in an interview with the Arkansas Free Press that they only need 10,000 signatures to do that. 

“You need 1,000 signatures for the president to get access to the ballot and 10,000 signatures for candidates across the board,” Paxton said. “Doing that makes you a political party in the eyes of the state and you can then run candidates in whatever office you choose.”

Op Ed: End The War On Dying Cancer Patients PDF Print E-mail
Written by R. Lee Wrights   

Stopping all war is not just something we need to do in the Middle East. It is something we need just as badly here at home. When I say "stop all war," I'm not just talking about the bombing and fighting overseas; I'm talking about the wars that the U.S. government wages against its very own citizens. I am talking about how bureaucrats kill Americans, not with guns and bombs, but with laws and regulations.

Meet the Arkansas Libertarian Party PDF Print E-mail
Written by Brian Leach   

My hope is to share about the Libertarian Party’s platform, ideas, and happenings at the local and national level here at arkansasfreepress.net.  I’m glad to have run into Editor Tracy Crain at our state convention and thankful that she has given me this outlet.

This year Arkansans will hear a lot more from the Arkansas Libertarian Party (ARLP).  Right now we are in the midst of collecting 15,000 signatures so we can appear on the ballot for the 2012 elections.  If you see our professional canvassers anywhere in the state over the next couple of weeks, please give them a minute of your time.

FP Exclusive: Country Music Legend David Frizzell PDF Print E-mail
Written by Tracy Crain   

It was a pleasure to hear country music legend David Frizzell perform some of his legendary country music classics this past weekend as part of the Arkansas Literary Festival.

Reporters don’t always get the luxury of sitting down and listening to a full show. When Jo Frizzell, David’s wife, invited me to attend, however, I definitely made the time. Trey Woodruff, Assistant to the Director of the Argenta Community Theatre was doing a phenomenal job of coordinating events when I arrived on scene.
