Every election, America faces a battle between two dominant political parties, which in turn divides America. We bicker about the opposing partys policies and are distracted by trivial matters. We then elect a new president who typically behaves similarly to the one prior. Four or eight years down the road, half the country regrets who they cast their vote for. This scenario has essentially been an ongoing ordeal for decades. The American people have let the establishment of the two dominating parties overshadow the possibility ofnew voices in American politics. But there is a fresh alternative to the Democrats and Republicans we have all come to love and hate: Libertarians.

Putting aside talking points from watching an hour of MSNBC or Fox News, what are the legitimate differences between Democrats and Republicans? Well, lets start with Americas history of military interventionism. Many people consider Democrats to be anti-war, whereas Republicans are considered warmongers hence the anti-Condoleezza Rice sentiment among the University faculty. However, since World War II, history in the White House has shown an overwhelming pursuit of war, regardless of which party held office.

For example, our current president continues Middle Eastern interventionism, global spying programs and unrestricted drone use, and he is a Democrat. Somalia intervention was under Bill Clinton, a Democrat. The Iraq and Afghanistan wars were under George W. Bush, a Republican. The Gulf War was under the President Bush senior, also a Republican. The Vietnam War was started under John F. Kennedy and continued through Johnsons administration. Both were Democrats. It was Franklin D. Roosevelt who established the Japanese internment camps across the United States through executive order. The striking similarity in both parties foreign policy suggests the need for a new party that would boldly proclaim their pro-diplomacy, pro-peace and anti-war policies.

Similarly, both political parties have enacted social programs costing the nation billions of dollars, which hinder prosperity. Social Security was established by FDR in light of the depression to secure finances for most Americans. A program generally deemed successful in the 20th century, is now seen as one of the largest threats to the nations financial wellbeing. Today, the pool of resources set aside to pay for Social Security is used for other back-door deals in Washington. We are a generation of taxpayers who are paying into a system we will not redeem the benefits from. A modern example of this is the Affordable Healthcare Act, or Obamacare. Our current Democratic president championed this health care reform package, but the idea of universal health care in America actually stemmed from the circles of D.C. Republicans some decades ago. A social program championed by Republicans that has already failed is the No Child Left Behind Act. This system of standardized testing in public schools was scrapped under the Obama administration from the 2009 stimulus package. It was replaced by a new system of standardized tests called the Common Core. These complicated social programs work against liberty and prosperity, the essential principles of libertarianism.

Democrats and Republicans have been on the wrong side of history for quite some time, whereas Libertarians have been consistent in advocating for all liberties for decades. Years before it was even mentioned in democratic circles, libertarians have been advocating for marriage rights due to their understanding that the government does not belong in ones bedroom. Similarly, as the United States has increased its war on drugs especially since the Reagan administration, libertarians have been advocating for the decriminalization of marijuana. This comes out of concern over Americas astronomical incarceration rate. In light of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars when the two main parties united, libertarians stood strong and opposed the Mid-East conflicts.

The Libertarian Party has the potential to be the party of grand compromise in a time when America could use it most. As the nation is split between which liberties to advocate for, economic or social, libertarians advocate for both. Seeing liberty as a whole truth, you will always find a libertarian that stands for transparency, privacy, individual rights, prosperity and peace.

PITTSBURGH, April 30, 2014 Damaged leg muscles grew stronger and showed signs of regeneration in three out of five men whose old injuries were surgically implanted with extracellular matrix (ECM) derived from pig bladder, according to a new study conducted by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Early findings from a human trial of the process and from animal studies were published today in Science Translational Medicine.

When a large volume of muscle is lost, typically due to trauma, the body cannot sufficiently respond to replace it, explained senior investigator Stephen F. Badylak, D.V.M., Ph.D., M.D., professor of surgery at Pitt and deputy director of the McGowan Institute, a joint effort of Pitt and UPMC. Instead, scar tissue can form that significantly impairs strength and function.

Pig bladder ECM has been used for many years as the basis for medical products for hernia repair and treatment of skin ulcers. It is the biologic scaffold that remains left behind after cells have been removed. Previous research conducted by Dr. Badylak’s team suggested that ECM also could be used to regenerate lost muscle by placing the material in the injury site where it signals the body to recruit stem and other progenitor cells to rebuild healthy tissue.

“This new study is the first to show replacement of new functional muscle tissue in humans, and we’re very excited by its potential,” Dr. Badylak said. “These are patients who can’t walk anymore, can’t get out of a car, can’t get up and down from a chair, can’t take steps without falling. Now we might have a way of helping them get better.”

For the Muscle Tendon Tissue Unit Repair and Reinforcement Reconstructive Surgery Research Study, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense and is continuing to enroll new participants, five men who had at least six months earlier lost at least 25 percent of leg muscle volume and function compared to the uninjured limb underwent a customized regimen of physical therapy for 12 to 26 weeks until their function and strength plateaued for a minimum of two weeks.

Then, study lead surgeon J. Peter Rubin, M.D., UPMC Professor and chair of plastic surgery, Pitt School of Medicine, surgically implanted a “quilt” of compressed ECM sheets designed to fill into their injury sites. Within 48 hours of the operation, the participants resumed physical therapy for up to 26 additional weeks.

The researchers found that three of the participants, two of whom had thigh injuries and one a calf injury, were stronger by 20 percent or more six months after the surgery. One thigh-injured patient improved on the “single hop test” by 1,820 percent, and the other had a 352 percent improvement in a chair lift test and a 417 percent improvement in the single-leg squat test. Biopsies and scans all indicated that muscle growth had occurred. Two other participants with calf injuries did not have such dramatic results, but both improved on at least one functional measure and said they felt better.

A bill to ban tobacco use at Maui’s county parks and beaches passed its second and final reading Tuesday in the Maui County Council.

Bill 24 gained approval with an 8-0 vote on Earth Day after the lawmakers received more than 400 letters of testimony since the bill was introduced 42 days ago.

It is good fortune that on Earth Day, Maui County has taken a step forward in protecting our beautiful coastal environment and promoting the health of our residents and visitors, said council member Don Guzman.

Guzman said he introduced the bill in response to the countywide cleanup effort called “Butts Off Our Beaches. The campaign led by students and volunteer organizations calls for the cleanup of Maui Countys shorelines and has led to the collection of more than 18,000 cigarette butts in two months.

Officials say student Gina Marzo of Maui Preparatory Academy helped lead the effort. Marzo calls the legislations passage a monumental movement of power and passion.

Under the bill, persons engaged in smoking or the use of tobacco products in county parks are subject to a fine of up to $500.

Currently, Hawaii County and the City and County of Honolulu have implemented smoke-free policies at parks and beaches.

No word on how Maui’s Mayor Alan Arakawa will treat the bill when it gets to his desk.

SEBRING – With the hot, humid summer days lurking just around the season corner, folks around Highlands County will soon be planning beach days out at area lakes.

And as of April 4, those waters should be clear for a plunge and the proverbial shouts of, “Come on in, the water’s fine!”

Since the beginning of April, Preston Colby, captain of Florida Public Safety — a private, aquatic program training organization that samples lake beach water for testing — said lake beach waters around Highlands County, mostly in Avon Park and Sebring, are safe for swimming,

Primarily, beach water — water close to the shore where most people swim — is tested for fecal coliform. Coliforms can indicate possible sewage contamination because they are commonly found in human and animal feces. Although they are generally not harmful themselves, they indicate the possible presence of disease-causing bacteria, viruses and protozoans that also live in human and animal digestive systems. Sources of fecal contamination to surface waters include wastewater treatment plants, on-site septic systems, domestic and wild animal manure and storm runoff.

Colby, who’s responsible for taking water samples for Florida Public Safety, said readings were good in April but he advises swimmers to swim beyond two to three feet of water, as any fecal coliform is more likely to be dispersed. He said water near the beach is also more likely to contain contaminants from stormwater runoff.

Florida Public Safety water samples are taken to Short Environmental Labs, Sebring, for testing.

“Bottom line is we don’t want the public swimming in contaminated water. If we know it’s contaminated as shown by sampling results, then we will close the beach,” said Colby, who has worked as a Highlands County water sampling agent for 24 years. “The more shallow the water, the more likely to have contaminants because it’s not deep enough to disperse fecal coliform.”

In the summer and December of 2012, the Highlands County Healthy Beaches Program issued swim advisories for the Crescent, City Pier, Hidden and Veterans beaches. Those beaches are now at acceptable coliform levels, said Jason Wolfe, environmental supervisor II with the Florida Department of Health, Highlands County.

He those lakes are in “satisfactory” swimming conditions and counts have been in range.. He said as far as summer swimming, county waters should be safe for swimming.

Wolfe said Lake Tulane and Camp Wingmann were tested in April and Camp Sparta’s lake in February. In addition, the last reading on lakes in Lake Placid in 2013 — Sun N’ Lake, H.L. Bishop Park, and Lake Grassy Inn & Suites have all tested good.

The Queensland government denies it’s restricting free speech by launching legal action to gag doctors’ unions during a dispute over contracts.

Senior doctors are threatening to resign over new individual contracts that they say will strip employment protections and compromise patient care.

Queensland Health has applied for a Federal Court injunction to stop doctors’ groups and unions spreading “misleading” information about the contracts.

Unions say its bullying tactics but Health Minister Lawrence Springborg maintains there are serious concerns about the veracity of the information.

“It is absolutely wrong to say we curtail free speech,” he told parliament on Wednesday.

“The motivation of this action was simply that if doctors are going to be advised to take a course of action which could be leading them to leaving Queensland Health’s employment, they need the best possible advice provided to them.”

The government has taken issue with legal advice telling doctors they will be worse off under the contracts.

The advice was published on the Australian Medical Association Queensland website.

Mr Springborg called the document “commentary dressed up as legal advice”.

“If people seek to make what can be significant career-limiting choices, and the advice they have been provided is wrong, then that is not right for those who put that information out there,” he said.

Protester Julia Mitchell holds a sign at the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court as arguments began to challenge the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that employers pay for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs as part of an employee’s healthcare, in Washington, March 25, 2014.

March 26, 2014|10:45 am

What if the federal government ordered you to act against your conscience – to take part in something you believed to be objectively wrong – or else be punished with huge fines?

This is no idle question. It describes exactly what is happening in America today: The Obama administration is ordering businesses and other organizations with 50 or more employees to have their insurance plans cover drugs and devices which can cause early abortions. To many business owners, that means either cooperating in grave evil, dropping insurance they have always provided their workers, or being forced out of business.

Just ask David and Barbara Green, owners of the giant chain of Hobby Lobby stores. Just ask the Hahn family, Mennonites who own Conestoga Wood Specialties. These courageous Americans are defending not only their own rights but also those of all Americans who wish to live their lives and run their businesses in accord with their free consciences and their deepest beliefs.

That is why the public policy groups and the women’s coalition that we represent signed an amici curiae (“friends of the court”) that was filed with the Supreme Court of the United States in two lawsuits against Obama Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. While we do not take a position on contraception, we do assert fiercely our freedom of conscience and religious liberty.

The cases center on ObamaCare’s Health and Human Services mandate, which uses the threat of ruinous fines to coerce private individuals and organizations into becoming complicit in abortions – to, as our brief says, “violate religious beliefs by covering in health insurance plans devices and drugs that can prevent an embryo from implanting in the womb.” In doing so, the Mandate directly attacks the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious freedom. It also contradicts several federal laws that protect the people’s conscience rights concerning abortion, such as the Church Amendment of 1973.

The mandate’s departure from respect for conscience rights is deepening our nation’s social and political divisions. It plainly creates a national conflict over religious freedom by trampling upon the conscience rights of the many Americans who oppose abortion. Those Americans, it should not even be necessary to point out, include millions of women such as ourselves who cherish and champion the right to life and who prize and defend Americans’ rights of conscience and religious liberty.
