Liberty’s Virtues

In a perfect world, none of this would matter. In a perfect world, any of it would work – communism, socialism, feudalism, capitalism, fascism, monarchy, theocracy, oligarchy, utopianism, corporatism, unionism, democracy, and even anarchy. But this is not a perfect world. And in this decidedly imperfect world, history teaches that one thing works much better […]

Republocrat Spoiler

Thick skin is a blessing. My Libertarian friends lose their minds whenever I say something nice about a Republican, and my Republican friends lose their minds whenever I say something nice about a Libertarian. My Democrat friends do not need a reason. I never tell people what to think; I merely try to give them […]

Conservatarian: The Hybrid That Wins Elections

Here is the difference: a political party is a label you wear on the outside, and a political philosophy is a label you wear on the inside. One is what you join, and one is who you are. Democrats suffer from some peculiar form of self-loathing which prevents them from describing themselves as “liberals,” even […]

Socially Neutral

The wisdom of libertarian neutrality on social issues was demonstrated again recently when one man’s opinion on marriage provoked chicken bans in major cities and a cancer fatwa from the nation’s least-qualified marriage expert. Libertarians are often described as fiscally conservative and socially liberal, but many of us prefer the term “neutral”, especially when liberals […]

If You Built It, He Will Come

It took President Obama’s infamous “you didn’t build it” speech to finally stimulate something in the economy; unfortunately for him that something was a week of blistering ridicule from producers. The blowback was predictable – if the symphony conductor can’t read music, the folks playing the instruments take umbrage when he credits the gym teacher […]

The Penalties For Success And The Rewards Of Failure

Is it a bird or a falcon? Is it P Diddy or Puff Daddy? Is it grey or gray? Is it a tax or a penalty? The answer is…yes. A tax is a penalty; that is the only thing that the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court got right in his decision to uphold the […]

A Post-Constitutional National Demography

Yesterday, the Supreme Court upheld the 2,700 page monstrosity of a law commonly called “ObamaCare,” reminding us all that the third branch of government is still government. To those of us unimpaired by a law degree, it did not seem like a difficult question: where, precisely, does the Constitution empower the federal government to mandate […]

Limit Government, Not Liberty

We used to recognize them by their entrenched contradictions; Republicans were the party of free enterprise and regulated morality while Democrats were the party of civil liberties and economic confiscation. Libertarians were also easy to identify – we took the best from each to form the party of free enterprise AND civil liberties.  Think of […]

Winning Strategy For Global Competition

I was born in 1954.  No thanks to me, the United States contributed 26% of the world’s economic output (GDP) in that year. Western Europe produced 24%, and India/China together produced only 9%. America was the undisputed economic superpower in the 1950’s; the envy of the world back then. Our cars had fins, our girls […]

End The War On Intoxicant Choice

Imagine if someone had come to President Richard Nixon in 1970 and said, “Here is a plan to reduce the national debt by $1 trillion, reduce the gang population by 1.2 million, reduce violent crime by 90%, prevent 37 million citizens from becoming felons, save our inner cities, maintain strong black families, and prevent civil […]
