Want Liberty? Work For It!

After the expected failure of the “Defund Obamacare” initiative in the Senate, many liberty activists are wondering what the next step is.  The next steps are what they always have been: educate, organize, win elections, and legislate. The first step is always education.  We need to educate both ourselves and our fellow Americans on their […]

The ObamaCare Minefield Ahead

Things on the ObamaCare front have been looking pretty bleak.  ObamaCare passed the Congress, of course leading (in part) to the huge House upset in 2010 in which Republicans regained control.  But to what end?  Subsequent attempts to repeal it or delay it have failed thus far.  And we just witnessed more than two weeks […]
