  • International Liberty Movement: An Idea Whose Time Has Come

    In the YAL “I Pledge” video, two young men, with English and Russian accents respectively, pledge to “spread the message of liberty throughout the world” and to “join the libertarian revolution in Russia.”  I have thought about these pledges more than the others.  Which brings me to this recent article: Is an international liberty movement …

  • Dixon High Chapter Hosts On-Campus TEA Party

    On Friday, 4/16, the Dixon High School YAL Chapter held a TEA Party event on campus just for students. The event earned quite a bit of local media and attracted over 150 attendees.

  • Chomsky Urges “Madison Crowd” to take Tea Party Movement Seriously

  • A Dictatorship of the Hip

    My apologies for the old video, but after watching this I take back both of the laughs Scrubs ever got out of me. “Rock the Vote,” which they refer to at the end, is the group that made this gem, threatening to withhold sex from any guy who opposes socialized healthcare. While Ron Paul, the …

  • Ron Paul Still Making the MSM Rounds

    He does a solid job  in this interview of addressing some legitimate criticisms of the “Tea party movement” (and some frivolous snark from RINO Lindsey Graham) as well as promoting the broader libertarian philospophy. After watching Ron Paul do so many interviews, it should become apparent to anyone that he is simply a sweatheart.  As ridiculous and/or …

  • Taxpayer Money Used To Ridicule “Teabaggers”

    Sponsered by none other than the notorious, state-affiliated National Public Radio (NPR). I’m wondering if there is any attempted intelligent message behind this humorless video?  In a new video posted online, NPR called teapartiers “teagbaggers.”  The mockery on the NPR webiste begins with : Learn to speak teabag. Finally, learning a new language doesn’t have to …

  • The Fall of the GOP and Why It’s Good for Us

    In the 2008 elections the GOP took major damage. This was a continuing trend from the 2006 mid-term elections, when the Democrats took over the House. In 2008, with the Dems in charge of both the House and the Senate as well as taking the Presidency, it seemed that the country had shifted from center-right …
