Costa Rica: On 7,000 Marines, Legalizing Marijuana, and Forcing GMOs
Last Saturday, I was at the Freedom Rally in Frankfort, KY. Yay, freedom! One of the best things for me about being back in the states is getting to participate in the political process. I am a political junkie right now. I must like frustration and being angry, eh?
Christina Tobin was there, too. She is the founder of FreeAndEqual.org, an organization dedicated to making sure all candidates have access to the ballot so the voters know their choices for representation. She is a dynamo, a go-getter and doesn't let ANYTHING stand in her way. You can read about her here.
Last Tuesday (my birthday, in case you forgot), she appeared on Scott Horton's Antiwar.com radio show. It's only 10 minutes and very illuminating. Listen to it here.
She talks about her recent trip to Costa Rica where she met with Otto Guevara, founder of Costa Rica's Libertarian party and my choice for President but who lost to Laura Chinchilla, and Alfio Piva, one of the new Vice-Presidents under La Presidenta.
Costa Rica has an open ballot, anyone who wants to can run for any office and be on the ballot. That seems so free and equal to me.
P.S. Scott's radio show is always worth a listen. He has fascinating and knowledgeable guests and I've learned so much from them!
