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?

Government giving away our money

As reported on CNN, the federal government fails miserably at keeping an eye on our tax dollars. The government admits that in 2009 it wasted $110 billion of our dollars. The waste? Some of the money went to the wrong people. Over a three year period, $180 million went to 20,000 dead people, and $230 million went to 14,000 fugitive or incarcerated felons. Fed up? As we all know, the government fails at everything they do.

Big Brother grows bigger and bigger

Justin Raimondo, one of the best at foreign policy and writer for, a great website, here tells us about how Leviathan continues to grow. In fact, it's getting so big in the area of "security" and "anti-terrorism" that no one seems to know how big it is. Note the fourth paragraph from the end where he details how many agencies have been created. Of course, we all know who pays for all of these agencies, bureaus, commissions, administrations, and departments, right?

Jefferson was pro-natural rights and anti-force

Thomas Jefferson wrote to Francis W. Gilmer in 1816:
"Our legislators are not sufficiently apprized of the rightful limits of their power; that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights . . . and to take none of them from us. No man has a natural right to commit aggression on the equal rights of another; and this is all from which the laws ought to restrain him . . . and the idea is quite unfounded, that on entering into society we give up any natural right."

World Cup needs instant replay

Although not politics (even though many governments get involved in their country's soccer team), a statement about the World Cup is needed. It's time to use instant replay since the officials are terrible. Adu's (U.S.) goal was nullified because he was called offside when he wasn't; England's goal was not counted because the official missed that it was one foot over the line (would have been the equalizer against Germany); and Moller got a yellow card for a ball that he unintentially let hit his upper arm (Germany was way ahead at the time, the end of the game, so it was a non-factor), he then missed the match against Spain which dramatically impacted Germany's offense.

IT IS TIME FOR REPLAY! Let's get with the times, FIFA - it's not 1930 anymore.
