California’s Blow Against Property Rights

California likes its reputation as the trend-setter of the nation, but let's hope it won't be true this time. On New Year's Day, it will become the first state where smoking is forbidden in bars.

The Creeping Takeover of Medical Care, Part 2

Are Foreign Lobbyists Really a Threat?

Throughout the campaign finance investigation, there has been a presumption that lobbyists representing foreign interests are automatically inimical to the interests of the American people.
