Stripping the Fat from Rights

Gov.Rick Snyder of Michigan wants doctors to track the body mass index (BMI) of children through a database that currently tracks immunizations and then to report the collected data to the state.

The Real Problem with Solyndra

Executives from the bankrupt solar-energy company Solyndra recently invoked their Fifth Amendment privileges before the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, declining to testify to avoid self-incrimination. “On advice of counsel, I respectfully decline to answer any questions,” said CEO Brian Harrison and CFO Bill Stover at the Subcommittee hearing “Solyndra and The ...

Ignorance Is Statist Bliss

The more things change, the more they stay the same. I was with some friends (in the Delaware Libertarian Party) who were running an Operation Politically Homeless table during Newark Community Day in Delaware recently. An OPH consists of having people take The World’s Smallest Political Quiz, then plotting their position on the Nolan Chart. It’s been years since I manned ... [click for more]

Restoring Freedom, Peace, and Prosperity, Part 2

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 Today, many Americans have come to accept that Iran is an official enemy of the United States.

A Historic Fiscal Solution, If We Overcome Convention Fears

If you haven’t noticed, the major problems at the federal level are bipartisan. The debt-ceiling charade, in particular, demonstrated that leaders of both major parties have no desire to balance their books. Sure, they’ll propose minor cuts to spending projections, but the status quo of deficits suits them just fine. The status quo does not, however, suit taxpayers, ... [click for more]

Pat Buchanan versus The Good War

Patrick J. Buchanan, in Churchill, Hitler, and the Unnecessary War (reviewed in Freedom Daily in three parts, beginning here), charges British statesmen with blundering into wars that resulted in the devastation of Europe and the fall of their empire. It is not surprising that this book has a caused a stir, for it draws into ... [click for more]

Social Security Is Not a Ponzi Scheme

It is good to see that the Republican presidential candidates are battling it out over the nature of the Social Security system. It is something that few politicians have been willing to talk about, lest they antagonize the largest class of voters in the country — senior citizens. At the Republican candidate debate at the Reagan Library in ... [click for more]

The Myth of Withdrawal from Afghanistan

Despite Barack Obama's trumpeted force draw-down in Afghanistan, by the end of next summer more than twice as many U.S. troops will be fighting in that country's civil war as there were when he became president in 2009. His soothing words notwithstanding, a force of about 70,000 will remain there at least until the end of 2014. We can ... [click for more]

Peace Prize-Winner Obama Savages Somalia

A human catastrophe is taking place in Somalia, the result of drought, famine — and the savage war conducted by the Obama administration, complete with a CIA training facility and prison. According to the Guardian, 150,000 desperate Somalis, mostly women and children, have walked more than 60 miles to a crowded refugee camp in Kenya in the past three ... [click for more]

Dying to Corrupt Afghanistan

American soldiers are dying so that Afghan politicians can continue looting U.S. tax dollars. Foreign aid has long been notorious for creating kleptocracies governments of thieves. The $50+ billion foreign aid that the United States has dumped on Afghanistan over the past decade is a textbook case of how foreign handouts drag a nation down. Corruption has been a huge ...
