Defending individual liberty against the tyranny of government.
Truth, justice and the American way: liberty without compromise.
Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place. - Frédéric Bastiat

"...the Christmas Spirit has swept through Washington like a blizzard!"
Harry Reid has been leaving gifts under the trees of wavering senators - a hundred million here, a hundred million there - to pass ObamaCare. Joe Lieberman is the Grinch who stole the public option (thank goodness). Rahm Emanuel is making his (enemies) list and checking it twice. Roland Burris is reciting Christmas poems on the Senate floor. The economy is like Tiny Tim, hobbled and on crutches, but nonetheless resilient and hopeful. Nancy Pelosi is like Scrooge (before the ghosts). And President Obama is like Mr. Potter from It's a Wonderful Life, gobbling up the Bedford Falls economy piece by piece, lashing out at the defiant remnants of its free market.
"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
"One can never be too hard on France."
- Don Luskin
