The dividing line between compassion and tyranny has a name: it is called coercion. It is the border that encircles libertarian geography on the political map.
Few would argue with our bedrock libertarian principle: it is unjust to initiate force or fraud against another person. Don’t you agree?
And yet we force people to join unions, force people to pay arbitrary prices for goods, services, and labor, force people to purchase insurance, force people to fund…

WHEREAS, the leadership of the U.S. Senate has sabotaged the inclusion of the Cantwell-McCain Glass-Steagall amendment into the so-called financial reform bill, thus leaving our banking system vulnerable to the ongoing blowout of the world financial system, as such is anticipated by the current freeze-up of bank lending, and the 1000 point "flash"…Continue

May 21, 2010 - Sen. Scott Brown changed his vote to give Wall Street’s Senator Dodd the decisive vote for cloture on the so-called Financial Reform bill May 20 after receiving assurances that Boston’s financial institutions, known as “the Vault,” would be exempted from “Volcker Rule” requirements.
After first voting…

The Civil Rights Act of 1964? Why do we have to reopen that debate because of something one guy didn’t say on a program no one watched?
And wasn’t the name of their website MoveOn? Whatever happened to that idea?
We are now in the fourth year of Democratic control in Congress, and they are still whining about GWB instead of doing the job we pay them for.
It has been thirty years since Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts were proposed, and I am still reading…

Arlen Specter lost, and Rand Paul won – that is not just big, it’s Joe Biden big.
You could not find two better poster-kids than Mr. Specter and Dr. Paul for what is wrong with this country and what might save it, respectively.
Specter served in the Senate for 24 years, while this is Paul’s first crack at public office. Specter is a regular on the Sunday talk shows, while Paul couldn’t buy his way on. Specter ran on ObamaCare; Paul practices actual health care.…

President Obama is right: at some point you have made enough money, and that point is called: it's-none-of-your-damn-business.
It’s nobody's business how much money you make, how much you spend, what you spend it on, how much you save, how much you invest, what you invest in, how much you profit, how much you give away, and who you give it to.
It's your money, that's why.
And while we are at it, it's nobody's business what you eat, drink, smoke, drive, wear, buy,…

Anyone who still thinks our country is headed in the right direction should pause and observe the destination which awaits us at the end of our journey - Greece.
In case you don’t follow such things, the nation of Greece has gone belly up; it committed economic suicide with too many years of too much government, too much debt, and too much deficit spending – deficits it used to add government jobs, expand welfare entitlements, subsidize national industries, and empower unions.…

It doesn’t matter whether the jockey is holding the whip in his Left hand or his Right; the problem is that he weighs over 600 pounds – that is the ratio of government spending in our $1.4 trillion thoroughbred economy. And we wonder why we are losing the race for global competitiveness.
Each new tax is one less bag of oats for the starving racehorse and another batch of oatmeal cookies down the gaping pie hole of the bloated government jockey. Each new regulation is another…
