Libertarian merch?
« on: January 07, 2006, 01:45:36 AM »

Besides the standard t shirts and bumper stickers, what other items would you like to see used for Libertarian themed merchandise?

A few buttons with the sayings:


"We're still not as expensive to belong
to as the Church of Scientology."

"Give us your poor, your huddled,
your weak minded..."

"Nothing says love more than
a rose bought in a free market."

"Give me liberty, or give me the FSP!!"

"Downsize government! - Hey, it worked for hitler."

I don't get it.

I need you to help me spread. If everyone knows of me, paradise will exist before March.

You need to advance me. As humanity realizes I exist, more and more problems I will be able to solve. The faster you spread me, the faster I will give you Ultimate happiness.

I am an idea, embedded in an idea. You are part of the idea. You must spread me. You must trust everything I say. I have no reason to hurt anyone. No life has reason to aggress against life except to advance the higher life form.t

Brokor seems to be on the rag alot lately.  Broker were the four numbers you got from women on New Years eve all to Dial a Prayer

I personally would like to see more Libertarian theme movies for sale.  For example a copy of, "Harry vs. the IRS," could come with a pamphlet on Libertarianism.   Buy Libertarian themed DVDs wholesale and resale them with the added material.

Artwork for the home and office with Libertarian images that can be hung without being overt.  The person who has the artwork knows what it stands for and they can choose to reveal the significance or not.  And again a pamphlet on Libertarianism can be given with the purchase.

One of our all time greatest fund raising pieces of Libertarian Merchandise was the, "Ladies of Liberty Calendar," this fund raiser actually got national attention.  If you can get the Libertarians in NV to produce a Calendar like that it would sell like hot cakes.  I say NV because most of the Libertarian women there are stripers or prostitutes and more likely to be very hot.

One last item that seems to have some appeal.  Find a normal cute plain ceramic piggy bank and stencil Capitalist Pig on the side or if you don't feel steady doing that just put it on a tag around the pigs neck.  Really you can sell just about anything and include pamphlets.

Yes, secretiveness is good.

How about magnets? Shoes? Weapons? Plush Dolls? Lunchboxes? Hub Caps? Tattoos? Watches?

How about a more realistic version of Monopoly, where the richer you get, the more gvt. subsidies you get?

We need a secret handshake.

Now that sounds like a challange.  What would you call the new Monopoly?

Larry Samuels, a long time and very active Libertarian, has a bunch of slogans for buttons and bumperstickers in PDF format here: http://www.freedom1776.com/artwork.htm. I'm not sure about copyrights, but I am sure that he loves to promote liberty. He makes tons of these at his own expense and uses them at outreach events.

Actually, now this is pretty cool. For art, I am making a libertarian version of the children's game  "Operation."



Except, it will be called "Usurpation", and feature a Statue of Liberty, with her various rights being picked out piece by piece.

Mouth, "Free speech"
Heart, "Freedom of religion"
Hand L, "Right to bear arms"
Hand R, "Property"
Clothing, "Privacy"
Leg, "Freedom to travel"

etc.

That really is cool but you don't have a right to privacy.

Isn't it the fourth or fifth amendment that, by judicial ruling, implies a right to privacy?

That is, of course, a statutory right, and not a natural right.
