In a civilized society, should anyone or any government ever force anyone to do anything against his or her will as long as that person does not infringe upon the life, liberty, or property of another?

End the Fed

The inflating central bank of the U.S., the Federal Reserve, has got to go. As you can read in this article by Eric Vorhees, the Fed has destroyed the value of our dollar. Time to read Texas Congressman Ron Paul's book, End the Fed. Thanks to for posting Eric's article.

The Recession is Over!

The host of "CNBC Reports" just declared on national TV that "the recession is over." Unlike FOX, the neocon channel, CNBC and MSNBC are both of the liberal persuasion. They never met a bailout or tax they didn't like. I wonder how the host is going to feel years from now when we're still in recession. Maybe he better read The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Great Depression and the New Deal by Robert Murphy in order to understand what's going on now.

Still want government to protect you?

As I've said and posted many times before, the government fails at everything they do. They failed to stop loons from flying planes into buildings and the Pentagon on 9/11, and they still can't protect us in federal buildings. As you can see in this article, bomb-making materials were smuggled into federal buildings. When is the public going to get it? The government can't protect us, we must protect ourselves.

Happy Secession Day!

When the people in America seceded from Great Britain in 1776, they exercised a right that is fundamental to liberty. Today, as you have hot dogs, soda, or a cold beer or two, remind your kids, friends, and spouse that the second paragraph of the document we are celebrating says that Texas can secede. The Declaration of Independence states: ". . . whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government . . . "

I'm ready for the Lone Star State again. With well over 20 million people, a nice big port, oil, and lots of farm land, Texas would do well nicely as its own independent republic again. At least we would have one benign neighbor (Mexico).
