Today I saw and heard, on Fox News, IRS exempt organizations director, Lois Lerner, say, after taking the testamentary oath at a House of Representatives Oversight Committee hearing, that  she had not done anything wrong.  ”I have not done anything wrong. I have not broken any laws. I have not violated any IRS rules or […]

Of course, they are.   If you wanted to prove the tenets of libertarianism were once and still are the basis of American political life, where would you go?  The Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776 and the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 established the foundation for libertarian government in the United States […]

The power used in a taking of private property for public use is called eminent domain.  The concept is historically derived from both the war power and the law of necessity, which empowered the king to take whatever property was necessary to protect the people from invasion or other serious harm.        Eminent domain […]

The first sentence of the Constitution of September 17, 1787 is not this Preamble: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do […]

American colonists became accustomed to putting everything to the vote that wasn’t to be decided by the English monarch or later by a President and Congress of the United States, so it is difficult, today, for Libertarians to understand that limited government can’t be voted in, provided they can get the votes.  The secret to […]
