Tim Pawlenty, the so-called “states’ rights” governor of Minnesota, feels that marijuana should be illegal in his state. OK. I disagree, but I live in California, so if the people of Minnesota agree, that’s their concern. At least that’s how the Constitution see it. Problem is, Governor Tim has no problem making the people of…Details
Recently, Andrew Napolitano sat in as a guest host on the Glenn Beck show. He interviewed both Kevin Gutzman and Thomas E. Woods, who are two of the country’s leading minds on state sovereignty issues. Powerful stuff. Watch it:
Why is it that federal government terrorism always gets brushed aside in the media? Horrifically, the GAO found that the DOD and other agencies were involved with terrorism against Americans from 1940-1970s. I do not recall the media ever speaking of this back in the 90s.
The report was done in 1994, so I am quite sure a lot more tyranny has taken place since then. The excuse used by these murders is ‘National Security’.
The number of people impacted by these actions will never be known.Details
Here’s (hopefully) the last update on website issues for a little while. In light of our recent downtime, we spent some time analyzing our site code and design and decided it was best to finally do an update. We’ve had some changes in mind for quite some time, but this turned out to be perfect…Details
Perhaps the status quo is no longer holding; people are growing more and more dissatisfied with their options, whether democrat or republican.
The truth is, the current two-party system always leaves one half of a country ticked off and feeling oppressed. This begs the question; is this really what the Founders intended 233 years ago when they signed a document that started the country? Did they really intend Congress to manipulate 3 Clauses in Article 1 Section 8 so as to rack up a $105 trillion dollar debt? Did they intend to have the 10th Amendment ridiculed like it was by David Shuster on MSNBC? Did they really want one-half of the country perpetually angry at the other?Details
This is just the opening salvo in what I hope to be a friendly and cordial debate among liberty enthusiasts regarding what role “constitutionalism” has to play in the future of the movement to fight statism and restore the protection of individual rights.
A recurring theme I’ve encountered is the schism between pro-Constitution libertarians and those libertarians who view the Constitution as a big-government parchment which paved the way for the federal leviathan that torments us today. A fact in the favor of the latter position is the enormous federal monstrosity which tramples individual rights on a daily basis.
Strategically, I always argue that the Constitution is the key to bringing together libertarians, traditional conservatives and anti-Globalists to fight our common enemy, statism. And to throw the Constitution to the curb is to ignore the lessons of the Ron Paul Revolution. [More on that in future posts.]Details
Many of us, after years of indoctrination at our government schools, were left with a sense that there is a great government force working hard every day to protect us and look after our best interest. We were told that government standards keep us safe from disease, that government highway regulations keep us safe from…Details
