Fidel Castro life was filled with corruption and that he had oppressed the Cuban people for decades. In effect he is responsible of destroying people's rights to exist as an individual. Fidel Castro never publicly confessed to believed in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and never repented from his sins against the Creator of the universe. From the evidence that I gathered about Castro's life he is in hell. It is sad that he is spending eternity in hell instead of spending eternity with the Lord Jesus Christ. He did believe in God but never indicated that he was under submission of the Lordship of Christ. If one doesn't believe in Christ's redemptive work on the cross and resurrection then one can't really call him or herself a Christian. This is why I put this portion of this particular posting of first importance. I'm more concern about one's soul than the issue of the individual right.
Fidel Castro was a man that suppressed his people into socialism. Socialism always needs to have a strong government and the institution of government has a historical push for more and more power. Governmental officials in general want more power; in today's world the easiest thing that a politician can do is to bring about socialism. Socialism will destroy the society that it controls. This is why people fled Cuba because of socialism. This is why there are a lot of Cubans that are living in Florida that are waiting for the Cuban government to change. A socialized democracy is a bit better than straight up dictatorial socialism, but the free market is always much stronger than any heavy handed government control nation. People will almost always try to cut their economic costs. If government gets to big and overbearing people will leave, this is why dictatorial controlled socialized governments has strong border defense to keep people from leaving not people flocking into the country.
Fidel Castro had the opportunity to have absolute power and back when he came to power he did say that he will restore democracy to Cuba but when he got the power he was corrupted. He realized that he could become very powerful in Cuba. This is why if government has to exist it has to only protect property rights, self-ownership rights and contract rights. Government in its current form has to destroy some of these rights but it can only use the funds from the individual to protect property rights, self-ownership rights and contract rights.
At the end of the day, I knew that the two-party system will reign. But this time the third party made their biggest impact so far, I wish it went a good 7% for Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party) and a good 3% for Jill Stein (Green Party), but it didn't. This election was very messy and it doesn't need to be messy, the reason why it is messy is because the American culture wants it messy. The whole "he said and she said" went back and forth replaced actual policy discussion that never really took place, it did in the debates but the press wanted to talk about the "juicy" parts of the debates. This is a sick way of doing politics because their isn't any real discussion about actual policies and one's past record. Both Clinton and Trump had some major flaws in both running a campaign I didn't vote for either because both will bring in the destruction of the individual's liberty of Property, Self-Ownership and Contract rights. One could argue that one might be a little better than the other but I can't support the idea of "voting for the lesser of the evils." I had to choose the candidate that best represents the three core libertarian principles that I've been talking about of Property Rights, Self-Ownership Rights and Contract rights. The sad part of this equation is that the Libertarian Party's candidate didn't even make the cut. But moving on, the results shouldn't matter too much as a Christian in the long term because Christ will win eventually. In the mean time I want to make sure that rights of the individual is being protected and the Gospel is clearly preached.

Being a Libertarian should mean that I would vote for the Libertarian Party's ticket. But I can't because they are not libertarians, it is like 2008 all over again. The Libertarian Party can't seem to choose an actual Libertarian to represent the ticket. John McAfee a pro-choose libertarian would be a far better choice than Gary Johnson and his running mate Bill Weld. Why? He is an actual libertarian, being a pro-life libertarian I would still vote for John McAfee if he would won the nominee process. Austin Petersen the other major Libertarian candidate would be a far better choice than John McAfee mainly because of his stance on the abortion issue. Austin Petersen is a pro-life libertarian. But these two aren't running for president anymore (at least in the 2016 election). I give credit to John McAfee for not supporting Gary Johnson on the notion that he isn't a libertarian. I use to support Gary Johnson, until I figured out what he stood for and the lack of any libertarian principle. In an interview that Gary Johnson had with CNBC that he would be open to a carbon tax as a solution to climate change, since then he back peddled on the issue, but my question is that he should be against it from the start due to the fact that he suppose to be a libertarian. This is just one example of many. Plus his background is that of a Republican governor down in New Mexico, which is fine if he is using the Republican party as a vehicle but he clearly isn't using as it. He is just a centrist Republican. If Gary Johnson stays with the party after the election might indicate that he is somewhat of a libertarian but I know that Bill Weld (VP of Johnson), isn't sticking around with the Libertarian Party, Bill Weld is more of a centrist Republican is very much against Trump and was so close to saying that he is backing Clinton in the election. The VP of the Libertarian Party is giving a lot of pleasant press of the Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton. This is by far beyond stupid. This is why the Libertarian Party should of picked McAfee or Petersen as the candidate. This leads me to do a search of other candidates out there that are more libertarian leaning and are on the ballot in the state that I'm currently living in of Minnesota. So, I have two other choices, Evan McMullin or Darrell Castle. Evan McMullin is a response to the never Trump movement and that he would be more closely aligned to Bush's over all policies and isn't a libertarian. Darrell Castle is a Constitutionalist meaning he is going to follow the original intent of the founders of the country and how they would have govern. This by far is the closest thing to the Libertarian principle out of all the candidates that I can vote for. Of course their might be another possibility that I could do is to write in Adam Kokesh or Jason Stapleton, which are far more libertarian than Johnson will ever be. I'm either going to vote for Darrell Castle or Adam Kokesh. If I do vote for Adam Kokesh, I'll snap a picture of it.
Summary, I'm voting for Darrell Castle. I can not endorse any candidate in this election, maybe the 2020 election.

Finally it is here! I was with another company in terms of having a website builder and even though I lost most of the data from that site but I will have an archived blog post coming up of that of the past several blog posting that I've done. This change should bring about a better experience.
