A “Right” To Health Care?

A right to something implies no one can legitimately take it from you or prevent you from enjoying that right. Thus a right to something means you are justified to use force to defend it. For example you have a right to your life, so if someone attacks you or threatens your life you can […]

“Obama’s Imperial Presidency”

A great article, originally from ‘The Atlantic’, on Obama’s worse record than Bush on abuse of civil liberties. An excerpt from the article for example… “No more national security letters to spy on citizens who are not suspected of a crime.” Obama promised on the campaign trail. Yet the Justice Department’s latest report to Congress […]

Reasons Nanny of the Month

This sort of petty tyranny, as Alexis tocqueville wrote would take hold in his famous work “Democracy in America,” is no longer funny, not when they come for our burgers.

“Standing for Individual Liberty and Limited Government: Ron and Rand Paul”

The link below will take you to a great article written by Doug Bandow over at Forbes.com.

Looks like the Obama regime will be forcing everyone […]

In a recent commentary of his, “The Patriot Act and Bipartisanship,” he continues to remain consistent in his defense of civil liberties and non-partisan outing of hypocrisy while recognizing his […]

Foreign Affairs Hearing

Great statements by Representatives Paul and Amash on the legality of the war powers act and constitutionality of our current foreign policy. We need more Congressmen like them in Washington.

My Message to Voters

To Democrats: Suppose the man running for President had in his previous term waged war against three countries while using drones to bomb two others; lobbied congress to ensure the continuation of the Patriot act; continued to imprison people without habeas rights in Guantanamo Bay and avoiding supreme court decisions by shipping certain individuals from […]

Osama Bin Laden and Cost-Benefit Analsis

Suppose you are a home owner and some punk decided it would be a fun time to throw stones through all of your windows. Also, suppose the cost of hunting this criminal down through private investigators, as well as the cost of lawyers and court fees were all yours to burden (no help from the […]
