Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Acabar completamente con el intervencionismo extranjero de EE. UU. trayendo todas las tropas de EE. UU. a casa de todos lados y que se desempeñen en el sector privado.
  • Acabar con todos los programas benéficos obligatorios y los impuestos que los financian, comenzando con Medicare.
  • Acabar con la guerra contra las drogas y revocar todas las leyes sobre drogas.



Profesión:Presidente de la fundación libertaria de educación.
Presidente, The Future of Freedom Foundation (1975–actual)


Virginia Military Institute. Facultad de Derecho de la University of Texas. Licenciatura en Humanidades (Bachelor of Arts, B.A.); Doctor en Derecho (Juris Doctor, JD), Economía. Leyes. (1975)


I was born and raised on a farm on the Rio Grande in Laredo, Texas. I graduated with a BA degree in economics from Virgnia Miiitary Institute and a law degree from the University of Texas. I was commissioned an infantry officer and served 8 years in the Reserves. I was a trial attorney in Texas for 12 years and also served one year as an adjunct professor of law and economics at the University of Dallas. In 1987, I left the practice of law to accept a position with The Foundation for Economic Education, the oldest libertarian educational foundation in the country. In 1989, I left FEE and founded The Future of Freedom Founation, which has published many books on various aspects of liberty. Among the honors I have received along the way: elected class valedictorian at VMI, awarded the Libertarian Party's Thomas Paine Award for outstanding communication of libertarian principles, and being selected as the keynote speaker at the 1996 LP national convention. My newest book, My Passion for Liberty, is autobiographical in nature and includes an introduction by former GOP libertarian presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de League of Women Voters of California (3)

What financing method(s) would you support to repair or improve roads, rails, ports, airports, the electrical grid, and other infrastructure in the U.S.?
Respuesta de Jacob Hornberger:

None. There is only one solution to this entire socialist morass: Privatize it and let private owners run it.

What programs or legislation, if any, would you support to help Americans of all ages to secure affordable health care?
Respuesta de Jacob Hornberger:

America had the finest health care system in history, one where heatlh care prices were low and stable, where doctors loved what they did in life, where innovcations were skyrocketing. And then came Medicare and Medicaid, two socialist programs that destroyed America's health care system, especially through ever-increasing health care prices. There is but one way to restore health to America's health care system: by repealing, not reforming, Medicare and Medicaid and, in a larger sense, eliminating all governmental involvement in health care. Separate health care and the state, in the way our ancestors separated church and state.

Describe an immigration policy that you would support if presented to the President.
Respuesta de Jacob Hornberger:

Americ's immigration system is one based on socialist central planning, which is why there has been a decades-long, never-ending immigration crisis. To enforce this socialist system, the federal government has brought into existence a police state in the American Southwest, which includes fixed highway checkpoints, roving Border Patrol checkpoints, warrantless trespasses onto farms and ranches, boarding of Greyhoud buses to examine people's papers, violent raids on American businesses, criminal prosecutions for hiring or aiding immigrants who have violated the illegal entry laws, Berlin fences and Berlin walls, and eminent domain stealing of people's lands. There is but one solution to this deadly, corrupt, and destructive morass: economic liberty and free markets, i.e., open immigration -- the free movements of goods, services, and people across borders, which was America's founding immigration system.

Filosofía política

I am libertarian. For 30 years, I have been advancing the principled case for liberty, free markets, and a limited-government republic at The Future of Freedom Foundation (, the educational foundation I founded in 1989. I want to move America in a different and better direction--in the direction of liberty, peace, prosperity, normality, and harmony with the people of the world.

A genuinely free society is one in which people are free to keep everything they earn and decide for themselves what to do with their own money. Moreover, freedom and free markets are the only things that work. That's why I favor repealing all socialist mandatory-charity programs, including Social Security, Medicare, corporate bailouts, farm subsidies, foreign aid, and all other programs that take money from people to whom it belongs to give it to people to whom it does not belong.

A free society also entails the right to ingest anything you want, no matter how harmful it might be. Drug abuse belongs in the private sector in groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and narcotics rehab groups, not the criminal justice system.

The government's war on immigrants has brought nothing but death, suffering, and a police state to our society. The only way to end America's decades-old never ending immigration crisis is through freedom and free markets, i.e., open borders.

The Constitution brought into existence a limited-government republic. After World War II, the federal government was converted into a national-security state, which is a totalitarian governmental structure. A necessary prerequisite to a free society is the restoration of a limited-government republic along with a relatively small military force, which necessarily entails the dismantling of the Pentagon, the vast military-industrial complex, the CIA, and the NSA, and the end of all foreign interventionism and its dark side practices (eg, assassination, torture, coups, invasions, occupations, sanctions, embargoes, alliances with dictatorial regimes, etc.), which has not only brought death and suffering overseas but also has destroyed our liberty and well-being here at home.

The war on drugs has adverely impacted people of all races, colors, and creeds, but there is no denying that its adverse consequences have fallen disproportionately on African Americans. The drug war, along with the Jim Crow mass incarceration it has spawned, is arguably the most racially bigoted government program since segregation.
