No End to the Shameful Treatment of Omar Khadr

by
This week, Omar Khadr, the Canadian citizen and former child prisoner, was supposed to leave Guantánamo after nine years and three months in U.S. custody. No one thought that he would return to Canada as a free man because he has another seven years to serve in a Canadian jail as part of a plea deal he made at ... [click for more]

Imperialist Attacks on Freedom of Speech

by
The US House Judiciary Committee passed a bill earlier this month that — should it become law — could put me in jail for a joke I made years ago. Back when I still had hair on my head, some friends and I loved Wednesday night at the Deer Park, a bar and restaurant in Newark, Delaware. Wednesday was Nacho ... [click for more]

Anything That’s Peaceful Means Anything That’s Peaceful

by
Leonard Read (1898–1983), opponent of Roosevelt’s New Deal and founder of the Foundation for Economic Education, was one of the twentieth century’s great champions of individual liberty, private property, the free market, and limited government. He counted among his friends and advisors such luminaries as Ludwig von Mises and Henry Hazlitt. Although he authored numerous collections of essays, Read’s ... [click for more]

Censoring Cash

by
If “money talks,” then a global campaign is being waged to silence it or, at least, to let cash speak only with permission. The Economic Collapse blog states, “All over the world, governments are either placing stringent reporting requirements on large cash transactions or they are banning them altogether. We are being told that such measures are needed to ... [click for more]

Ron Paul’s Radical Deal

by
Several Republican presidential candidates have rolled out economic plans they claim will jumpstart the moribund U.S. economy and narrow the nation’s yawning fiscal gap. Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s plan creates an optional 20 percent flat income tax, restricts federal spending to 18 percent of GDP, and seeks a balanced budget by 2020. His plan also calls for lowering the corporate ... [click for more]

Taxing the Rich

by
President Obama’s American Jobs Act of 2011 (S.1660) recently went down to defeat in the Senate. Two Democrats joined with all forty-six voting Republicans (Sen. Tom Coburn did not vote) to kill the $447 billion plan. The most egregious part of this bill was that it “amends the Internal Revenue Code to impose on individual taxpayers in taxable years ...

The Debt-Limit Mess

by
Last summer’s debt-limit controversy, with all its predictions of apocalypse, raises a rather important question no one but libertarians seems interested in: Why are the 535 members of Congress and the president of the United States allowed so much power that their mere failure to permit the themselves to borrow more money had the potential to severely disrupt the ...

Airport Security Is Coming to a Highway Near You

by
The transition to a police state will not come about with a dramatic coup d'etat, with battering rams and marauding militia. As we have experienced first-hand in recent years, it will creep in softly, one violation at a time, until suddenly you find yourself being subjected to random patdowns and security sweeps during your morning commute to work or ...

Drone Warfare Is Fraught with Danger

by
One can understand why Libyans would celebrate the end of the Qaddafi dictatorship. But the American people should nonetheless be concerned about what the U.S. government did in North Africa. On the day Qaddafi was killed, the New York Times reported that “the death … is the latest victory for a new American approach to war: few if any troops ... [click for more]

Obamas Dictatorial Assassination Program

by
The Obama administration now claims the authority to kill American citizens without a trial, without notice, and without any chance for targets to legally object. The “targeted killing” program of George W. Bush’s administration has been radically expanded to include Americans far from any war zone. Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair testified last year that the targeting-to-kill decision ... [click for more]
