More Washington Lies
October 01, 2014
Hong Kong: Whatever is occurring in Hong Kong, it bears no relation to what is being reported about it in the Western print and TV media. These reports spin the protests as a conflict between the demand for democracy and a tyrannical Chinese government. Ming Ch ...

The Fate of Galt's Gulch Chile
August 25, 2014
Many have wondered about the status of Galt's Gulch Chile (GGC), the libertarian community that was planned and sold in lots as a liberty oasis for those who wished to live freedom before they died. My husband and I purchased an option on 1.25 acres in July 201 ...
Ferguson: The War Comes Home
August 25, 2014
America's attention recently turned away from the violence in Iraq and Gaza toward the violence in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting of Michael Brown. While all the facts surrounding the shooing have yet to come to light, the shock of seeing police usi ...
Police Violence: A Parochial Frame of Reference

Secession – Logical Outgrowth of a Modern Reformation

The Reason Police Brutality Is Rising
November 28, 2013
A headline in Mint Press News (Nov. 6) declared, "U.S. Police Have Killed Over 5,000 Civilians Since 9/11." An earlier Mint article (Aug. 19) reported, "Claims of Minneapolis Police Misconduct: 439; Officers Disciplined: 0." It is almost cliché to talk about a ...
Measuring the Extent of a Police State
November 21, 2013
I believe America's political institutions are beyond redemption. The hope for America lies with individuals who live freedom rather than talk about it or pursue it through authorized means. Freedom now rests with individuals who say "no," in combination or alo ...
What Is The Real Agenda Of The American Police State?
November 15, 2013

Global analyst Ian Bremmer has written a provocative new editorial posted at Reuters.com on "the end of the American Decline." We've commented on some of Bremmer's ideas before because he's a youthful "big thinker" who has received a lot of publicity for severa ...
Immigration 'Reform' Will Turn the US into a Police State
February 05, 2013
Whenever the federal government decides to reform something we can be fairly sure that the problem is about to get worse, especially if they call the plan bi-partisan. The bi-partisan immigration reform proposal launched last week in the US Senate will be no di ...
Government Security is Just Another Kind of Violence

Secession's Violent Subtext
November 17, 2012

Ron Holland on Moving Offshore, Executive Orders, Rand Paul, TSA and Political Eunuchs
June 24, 2012
Today I would never want to raise a family or manage a new company inside the US. There is too much terrorist and foreign policy risk, political risk, dollar risk, regulatory risk, crime and out-of-control federal agencies. What's left of the Constitution and B ...

Why the First Amendment?
