I, Jacob McCartney, formally challenge Tomi Lahren to a live broadcasted, one-on-one debate. I am a libertarian with debating experience and an understanding of economics and the issues. There are plenty of possible topics. I will cede choices on topics and terms to her. 7 judges, 3 picked by me and 4 picked by her. A … Continue reading Debate Challenge to Tomi Lahren
The issue of defining what it means to be a free human does not yield clear results. But once it is defined, it and its implications can be used to determine aspects of entitlements, life, and everything that goes with them.

I have been studying concepts such as the social cycle theory, Piagetian Theory, the Tytler Cycle, the Olduvai Theory, and plenty of other theories relating to how societies work. Applying the laws of physics to the behaviors of the human … Continue reading Is The USA The Next Rome?

Many economists will agree that is in fact does harm the economy, but there are a few who would advocate for it. I intend to prove that the minimum … Continue reading My Take on the Minimum Wage
Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States of America. I say this with confidence because I have two reasons, and any of my reasons alone would be enough to convince me. The first and most basic reason is his strategy. Now, in the beginning, virtually no one took Trump’s campaign seriously. … Continue reading Donald Trump Will Be The Next President of the United States
Gary Johnson is not a true Libertarian. Yes, he won the nomination for the Libertarian Party, but far too many of his views are very much statist ones. While he is anti-war, supports the legalization of marijuana, advocates for freeing the markets of the regulations that make running a business more expensive and more difficult, and is … Continue reading Why Libertarians Should Vote for Gary Johnson in 2016
