Defending Empire

I am continuously amazed how quickly people attempt to defend politicians, regardless of the hypocrisy and sheer lunacy displayed by political figures. What have these politicians done to earn your trust? What makes them worth defending? We’re led to believe that without these cherished political behemoths starting new wars, torturing people and ignoring the rule [...]

Anwar al-Awlaki and the Constitution

I have been called unrealistic and “a little nuts” for suggesting that Anwar al-Awlaki, a U.S. citizen, should have been charged and convicted before he was assassinated on September 30, 2011, in a U.S. drone attack in Yemen. It’s hardly an unrealistic position, considering that Awlaki has been on the CIA’s hit list since April 2010. [...]

Ron Paul on Blowback, Foreign Policy, and Peace

Blowback is a term used by the CIA to explain unintended, harmful consequences of military action (particularly aggressive action). Ron Paul is the only presidential contender who truly understands blowback and why current U.S. foreign policy endangers the national security of the U.S. Tweet

Ron Paul and the Minimum Wage

For those interested in learning more about the negative consequences of the minimum wage and why it hurts those it is intended to help, please refer to the work of Walter Williams, Peter Schiff, Ron Paul, Thomas Sowell, and Thomas E. Woods Jr. Those who blindly support the minimum wage are supporting a mandate that [...]

PATRIOT Act Extended Four More Years

On May 27, the House passed a bill extending the PATRIOT Act for another four years. The Senate initially approved the bill with a 73-27 vote, despite vigilant efforts from Senator Rand Paul (including a seven-hour filibuster) to add amendments that would have restricted the federal government’s ability to authorize warrantless searches and single out [...]

Government’s Prohibition of Price Cuts in the Great Depression

When President Franklin Roosevelt signed the National Industrial Relations Act on June 16, 1933, the National Recovery Administration (NRA) was created. The NRA, one of the major components of Roosevelt’s “New Deal” legislation, was created in response to accusations of “cutthroat competition” and the need for “fair competition.” Economic historian Thomas DiLorenzo explains the “NRA [...]

The Right to Earn a Living

This video is a great summary of how economic and civil liberties go hand in hand; you cannot have one without the other. There is only one liberty: Individual Liberty. Life, liberty, and property; so simple yet so easy for government to claim as its own. Tweet

Secession: Freedom’s Greatest Ally?

Currently I read reading the book 33 Questions About American History You’re Not Supposed to Ask by Thomas Woods (author of recent best-seller Meltdown). In it Woods brings up the Civil War and questions if it was really only or largely about slavery, as is commonly believed and taught in U.S. classrooms. He mentions a [...]

Freedom and Forced Vaccinations Can’t Coexist

The swine flu, or H1N1 virus, has been declared a “pandemic” by the World Health Organization. In response to fears of the flu spreading, many government health agencies have stepped up to the plate and are now rushing vaccines into the marketplace. European health officials have declared that lives potentially lost through largely untested vaccines [...]

Censorship Cannot Silence Truth: A Message to the White House

A White House blog post submitted on August 4, 2009, states that “opponents of health insurance reform may find the truth a little inconvenient, but as our second president famously said, ‘facts are stubborn things.”‘ It continues, “Scary chain emails and videos” are popping up on the internet, attempting to discredit President Obama’s health care [...]
