Freedom Is the Best Insurance against Terrorism

by
In the wake of the possible sabotage of TWA flight 800 and the bombing at the Olympics, President Clinton did what politicians always do at times like these: he grabbed for more power. If that has a feeling of dj vu to it, it should. Shortly after the blast at the federal building at Oklahoma City, Clinton asked Congress to ... [click for more]

The Hypocritical War on Terrorism

by
President Clinton is continuing to agitate for new powers to suppress terrorists. He is demanding more powers for wiretaps, more powers to prevent people from using encryption for their e-mail, more powers to classify normal crimes as terrorist offenses, and so forth. As usual, Clinton's solution to every problem is more power for himself and his cronies. Clinton has ... [click for more]

Drug War Dementia

by
Politicians have found few better ways to frighten voters than with the specter of drugs. The government's war on drug users is annually jailing hundreds of thousands of Americans, ruining the neighborhoods of millions of other Americans, and setting precedents for expanded government power in other areas. Most of the drugs ... [click for more]

Homegrown Tyranny Takes Root Slowly

by
Twentieth-century Americans have been conditioned to think of "tyranny" as something that happens to other people.

The Guilding of the American Workforce

by

The Relegalization of Drugs, Part 1

by
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 A member of the Christian Coalition recently telephoned me and said that she agreed with most of what The Future of Freedom Foundation stands for and wanted to support us.

The Clinton Administration’s War on Privacy

by
The Clinton administration, self-proclaimed champion of civil liberties and small government, is a big fraud. President Clinton's Department of Justice, it was recently revealed, is wiretapping more and more American citizens each year. It is increasing the number of federal wiretaps by more than 30 percent annually. What's more, the administration is bulking up the budgets of the FBI and ... [click for more]

Stop Playing Games

by
It's time for President Clinton to stop playing Saddam Hussein's tiresome game. How many times will the president prime the American people for military strikes on Iraq, only to go on television and call them off after Saddam has agreed to readmit the UN weapons inspectors? It's like a summer re-run! There ... [click for more]

Drug War Dementia

H. L. Mencken observed in 1918: "A politician normally prospers under democracy in proportion . . . as he excels in the invention of imaginary perils and imaginary defenses against them." In recent years, politicians have found few better ways to frighten voters than with the specter of drugs. The government's war on drug users is annually jailing hundreds ... [click for more]
