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?

Murphy teaching Anarcho-Capitalism

Robert Murphy is teaching this Mises Institute online class.  Very worthwhile!  Murphy's a great economist and will provide you with "ammunition" to fight off the statists.  Read about the class here.

Increased dependency on the nanny state

The government loves when people are dependent on the government.  Right now 1 in 7 Americans get assistance from the government, and 47 million Americans receive food stamps.  But the government wants MORE people to have food stamps.  As you can read in this article, the government is encouraging people to throw food stamp "parties" so more can sign up.  Since the participation rate among the poor is only 72%, the government wants that to increase to 100%.  With more dependency, a cranky Supreme Court ruling that Obamacare is okay, and a trillion a year to support the empire, the U.S. is heading at a high rate of speed for a complete financial meltdown.  Get prepared.  Maybe we all should watch that new show, "Preppers."
