Freeman finds himself within the borders claimed by a government. This human being decides he does not want to participate in the government organization anymore, so he quits. He then finds a nice plot of "public" property and claims it as his own.
Public choice in economic theory is the use of modern economic tools to study problems that are traditionally in the province of political science. Public choice looks at governments from the perspective of the bureaucrats and politicians in them.Entered By: Leon Felkins
Existence in America is driven by certain myths. Myths are dangerous things to base one’s life upon, for while they usually germinate from the seeds of truth, they come to metastasize into rootless species, multiplying at a rate which guarantees thei
If Buckley betrayed the libertarianism he had learned from Nock, he showed himself an apt pupil of his other mentors. Like Meyer, he was willing to risk nuclear annihilation to overthrow communism: better dead than red.
“Tutto nello Stato, niente al di fuori dello Stato, nulla contro lo Stato.” Mussolini’s dream is the end state toward which all schemes of coercive government inexorably pull the societies they afflict.
Even the Founders, a grouping singular in the history of men concerning the brilliance of their intellects and the purity of their motives knew they couldn’t trust themselves to form or maintain a government of fallible men to rule over fallible men.
The Pew Research Center has released a poll on trust in government, finding, to no one's surprise, that there is precious little of it. Pew found distrust and dislike of government to be as high as at any time since pollsters began posing similar que

In my article ”Saying Yes to the Party of No,” I commented on how pleased I’ve been to see Glenn Beck talking about a subject I’ve been writing about since the late seventies: a government-declared state of emergency leading to a ”temporary” dictator

CNN Political Analyst Roland Martin writes: "Channel your inner Al Capone and go gangsta against your foes. Let 'em know that if they aren't with you, they are against you, and will pay the price." Word to yo muthaf*ckin' Mama....Bizzatch!
When he's attacking the tired old Washington games, he's just playing the tired old Washington games. But, when he's proposing the tired old Washington solutions, he means it; that's the real Obama, the only Obama on offer.
The federal government has been adding jobs at a 10,000-a-month clip. Between December 2007 and June 2009, federal payrolls exploded by nearly 10 percent. And data from the Office of Personnel Management show the average federal salary is now roughly
The ideals Obama has in mind are bred of Washington’s of old: the arrogant domination of others’ lives and property under threat of lethal violence in order to advance the self-serving agenda of the State.
Why does the state fail? Was it not founded with the consent of the governed to secure the rights to life, liberty, and property? The short answer is no, and because the answer to the second question is no, the state cannot possibly succeed.
What’s your priority: Building that society for yourself and with others who want to live in it? Or waging an eternal battle to seize monopoly power and impose your unrealized vision on everyone?
On Tuesday, Matt Drudge ran a headline about the weakening U.S. dollar on his website, Drudgereport.com. In and of itself, that would be unremarkable, except that it was the 18th time Drudge had posted a link to a story about the weak dollar this mon
The U.S. is the one country that can never be deterred, and can never be allowed to learn from its own experience. The U.S. must never realistically assess the consequences of its own actions and adjust its future course of action accordingly.
Since resigning as governor, Sarah Palin has essentially gone dark, making almost no public appearances and successfully avoiding the media outlets that are clamoring to talk to her. But that doesn’t mean Palin has been quiet.
Tim Geithner, the Goldman Sachs Secretary of the Treasury, has gone on record as saying that the government will withdraw its $3 trillion backstop guarantee from the money market fund industry, on schedule, this September 18.
The government that is supposed to serve the people, is now telling the people how they should vote, and using the people's money to do so! What country are we living in again?
State Republican lawmaker Tommy Benton (31st House District) favors “caning” minor marijuana offenders and “executing” those who sell the drug, according to a recent correspondence sent by the representative to a constituent.
Government was created to serve the people. Unfortunately government has gotten so big it thinks its the one calling the shots.
Government is malignant. You can't allow even a tiny bit to
remain without the certainty of it spreading again. How much cancer is
the best amount to give yourself? How
much cyanide do you think is best to add to your food?
The dirty little secret of “majority rule” is that it’s no such thing.

[Nonviolence] is a way of life based on these human beliefs: Human
conflicts can be resolved without violence or force; organized social aggression
can be faced and turned back effectively without war and without killing anybody;
most crime problems can be addressed more effectively without the use of violent
methods or punishment or restraint; people well-educated in the use of nonviolent
methods will almost always be more effective in human relations than those who
use physical threats and weapons.

contract,” it’s that: You only get to be part of society if you keep
your hands out of other people’s pockets and off other people’s throats.
