Derrick Michael Reid

Derrick Michael Reid, 2018 Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate in California

I am a Californian for all Californians, a moderate and a problem solver, seeking to unite multipartisan factions for solving major problems, primarily including immigration, imprisonment, and corruption. Second-class people live in the shadows. Prisons are overpopulated. Political and monetary corruption permeates government functions. With 50 million hungry, 100 million unemployed, and 20 trillion in debt, the two major pandering political machines have failed the nation and have concentrated totalitarian power in D.C.

As an Engineer, Lawyer, and Military, Market, and Geopolitical Analyst, system analysis offers a comprehensive solution set to many problems facing California and the country. Many problems flow from insufficient negative feedback controls. I seek to bring together in compromise opposing factions to find common ground solutions and promote domestic tranquility. Other problems particular to California include indebtedness, poverty, homelessness, taxation, infrastructure, and pollution, which can be addressed in the federal context for solving like problems nationwide. The problems are enumerable and the rancor is undignified.

Economic stagnation is viewed by corporate revenues and labor participation. The prospects of higher interest rates could implode the bond market, and with it, the equity markets and the economy. Integrated solutions are ready when collapse occurs. Congress should have at least one senator who knows how to recover quickly, with a debt jubilee, a monetary reset, and government reforms to restore real money, honest markets, the Constitution, and the Republic for long term prosperity with maximum liberty.

2018 California Libertarian candidates: Governor

The California Libertarian Activist invites Libertarian candidates in California to provide statements about their candidacy for our members and subscribers.


Governor

In 2018, the LP of California has two Libertarian candidates for governor: Zoltan Istvan and Nikolas Wildstar, who provided the following statements.*

Zoltan Istvan

Zoltan Istvan is often considered the world’s leading transhumanist and a top Libertarian futurist. Zoltan began his futurist career by publishing The Transhumanist Wageran award-winning, #1 bestseller in Science Fiction and Philosophy. The libertarian-minded novel has been compared to Ayn Rand’s work many times in major media and was a Top 5 Amazon book. During the 2016 elections, Zoltan interviewed with Gary Johnson to potentially be his preferred Vice Presidential running mate. Zoltan is also a well known technology journalist and a former filmmaker for the National Geographic Channel. As a successful entrepreneur, The New Yorker cited Zoltan made a “small real estate fortune.” Zoltan also has executive experience via his former position as a director at a major wildlife nonprofit, WildAid. In total, Zoltan’s public work has received hundreds of millions of views, much of it through his political activism. He ran for California Governor for the Libertarian Party in 2018. Zoltan has spoken at the World Bank, the World Economic Forum, Microsoft, and been the opening Keynote at the Financial Times Camp Alphaville. He is a graduate of Columbia University, and lives in San Francisco with his physician wife and two young daughters. In a 5000-word feature on Zoltan, The New York Times wrote Zoltan is “polite and charismatic” and has a “plausibly Presidential aura.”

Nickolas Wildstar

2018 California Libertarian candidates: Governor

Hello!

I am Libertarian candidate Nickolas Wildstar and I’m running for governor because California is in need of a leader that will genuinely work towards the betterment of the state with only the public’s best interests in mind.

As I got involved in fighting for human rights I’ve marched along protesters and activists of the community who were mothers and fathers, veterans and servicemen, hard workers and those seeking to work hard, I learned many things, but the one thing I learned that they all had in common was that they were fed up with how politicians were running the state.

Forever increasing taxes and not having a choice in the matters that affects our community the most has began to take its toll on people and they’re starting to look at government as more of a problem than a solution.

As the first Libertarian to be elected Governor I’ll be able to fix this by making drastic cuts to taxes, restoring personal choice and reducing the size of government to let the people of California have more liberty and freedom over how they live their lives!

Thank you and may the light of liberty shine on each and everyone of you.
