A Libertarian Black Agenda

In this piece, David shares his Libertarian Black Agenda, which summarizes his own take on Libertarian policies and principles that are especially relevant to the Black community. David was inspired to develop this agenda in response to the recent call from the Maryland Black Caucus Foundation for each gubernatorial candidate to publish a Black Agenda. David closes his agenda with three personal promises that come straight from his heart.

A Libertarian Journey

In this piece, David shares his personal journey to the Libertarian Party after being a Reagan Republican, then becoming increasingly disillusioned with the party and eventually leaving it upon its embrace of Trump. David explains why he could not join the Democrats. He encourages everyone to everyone to consider support for the Libertarian Party in this election, given what we are getting from the Ds and the Rs.

IT in Maryland is at a Tipping Point

In this 2019 analysis, David critiques the IT model for the Maryland government, recommending a different path forward than Gov. Hogan was implementing at the time. David’s analysis has proven accurate; his predictions have proven prescient. Read more, including the 2021 postscript, to understand why IT is vital to the State and how it could be better.

Are you ready to vote different?  And make a difference?

Be the Change!

The Established Parties. The politicians from the Democratic & Republican parties are devoted to fighting one another… instead of serving the all of us.

The Privileged Elites. The professors on campus and the voices in the media righteously denounce our institutions and history… instead of acknowledging our country’s slow-but-steady progress in liberty, justice & prosperity for all people across the decades and generations.

Our True Needs. We need decency & service from our elected officials. We need perspective & humility from our elites.  We need reliable & sustainable progress toward a more perfect union.

Your Opportunity. If you agree, give your support to David & Christiana as they offer a different & better way forward… a genuinely inclusive way forward… as compared to that which the modern Democratic & Republican parties are offering.

Our Call to Action. This election, vote different. Make a difference. Be the change toward a tolerant & responsible future for us all.
