If it wasn’t obvious before then it became obvious last night that Hillary Clinton’s renunciation of her vote to invade Iraq was nothing more than political calculation rather than genuine remorse or belief that she was wrong. At the first Democratic Party debate for the presidential candidates Hillary stated that the overthrowing of Maummar Gadhafi […]

Why We Are Not the Government
October 12, 2015

Bernie Sanders tweeted out the above picture, and specifically quoted FDR saying, “Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us.” This is and was nothing more than political sloganeering designed to beguile as many boobs as possible into supporting politicians who do terrible things in their name. How […]

Donald Trump is Right About Syria
October 4, 2015

These are words I never thought I’d say, but Donald Trump is the only major candidate in either party making any sense when it comes to Syria, ISIS, and Vladimir Putin. In an interview on “Meet The Press,” Trump said that the Middle East would be far better off if Saddam Hussein and Maummar Gaddafi […]

Government Funding of Abortion
September 21, 2015

When it comes to the issue of abortion I’m a self-described agnostic. Simply put, I have no idea whether I’m pro-life or pro-choice, because I think the fundamental arguments for both positions are correct. It’s true that every individual woman owns her own body, and it logically follows that she should be able to make […]

There has long been controversy about whether or not the U.S. government is required to extend legal protection to non-American nationals, especially those who are caught up in the War on Terror. The people imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay, for example, have been granted no due process, have been tortured, and are being detained indefinitely. This […]

The Fallacies of Justin Raimondo on War and Peace
September 14, 2015

I understand that Justin Raimondo’s Twitter persona is meant to be more a character than a true representation of who he is, but that doesn’t excuse illogical thinking on his part or blatant hypocrisy. Raimondo was once one of Rand Paul’s biggest cheerleaders and angriest defenders. Any criticism of Rand Paul was sure to be […]

Dan Hannan, the famously Euroskeptic Member of the European Parliament from the United Kingdom, could once have been considered a friend to the cause of enlarging human freedom. There are few who can match him when it comes to issues of economics or leaving the European Union, and there’s certainly something to say for someone […]

Godless Marriage Licenses
September 2, 2015

Kentucky Clerk of Courts Kim Davis has been in the news for the past week or so because despite the Supreme Court ruling that gay marriage is now legal in all 50 states she has refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples citing her religious beliefs. She has claimed that “God’s Authority” trumps the […]

The Mundane Leading the Boring
August 28, 2015

The big news of the day is that former Congressman Eric Cantor has endorsed Jeb Bush for President. This is a big get for the former Governor of Florida who’s flagging campaign has taken a beating from a dominant Donald Trump. I kid, of course. The former Majority Leader, whom I gleefully remind you was […]
