  • Austro-Libertarianism as a Honey Badger

    As I head home from the YAL National Convention, I want to reshare an older blog post of mine in which I make the case that the liberty movement must emulate the fearless African Honey Badger.

  • “Sh*t People Say” Contest — Liberty Themed!

    There’s this meme floating around on YouTube. There’s these videos satirizing the ridiculous things people say, usually broken down by demographic. Sh*t white people say. Sh*t black people say. Sh*t rich people say. Sh*t hipsters say. Sh*t zombies say.

  • Congress should watch more Schoolhouse Rock

    It would appear that Congess didn’t watch enough Schoolhouse Rock as children:

  • Definition of an isolationist in laymen’s terms

    For anyone who’s ever been frustrated by the irony in the claim that libertarians are “a bunch of isolationists.”

  • Rand Paul on Choice, Light Bulbs, and Toilets

    This may be the best video of Rand Paul to date. Make sure you stick through til the end when the government drone he’s talking with is literally speechless. As for the toilets in question, here’s humorist Dave Barry on the subject: Every now and then I’ll just hit a nerve — when I wrote …

  • Bigger than Jesus

    Apparently, attitudes are changing in America. Thanks to StoptheDrugWar.org for the link. Note: I use this title as a pun on the Beatles’ famous statement; I mean no disrespect to our Christian brothers and sisters.
