Open the champagne!

Here we go, the big debut. My aim is to present defenses of true personal liberty, free markets and free trade between willing participants, and the necessity of low taxes and minimal government. I'll discuss politics, history, and economics – including the historical revisionism and bad economics so prevalent today.

Let's start off with two great quotes:

"You are not to inquire how your trade may be increased, nor how you are to become a great and powerful people, but how your liberties can be secured; for liberty ought to be the direct end of your government." – Patrick Henry, 1788, addressing the Virginia legislature as to why he did not support ratifying the Constitution

"The quantitative treatment of economic problems must not be confused with the quantitative methods applied in dealing with the problems of the external universe of physical and chemical events. The distinctive mark of economic calculation is that it is neither based upon nor related to anything which could be characterized as measurement." – Ludwig von Mises, Human Action, chapter 11, part 4
