  • Those Condemning State’s Rights as “Racist” Should Read More and Talk Less

    The  NPR guy who interviewed Tom Woods last week is not an anomaly. The first thing many of these MSM types think of when nullification is brought up is racism and Jim Crow. That’s rather odd, given that no one is advocating nullification be used to strike down federal laws abolishing forced segregation. On the contrary, nullification would be used …

  • Tom Woods Gives the Hardcore Case for Nullification — on NPR

    The anti-state, anti-war, pro- market Tom Woods is a great example of principle paying off. Not only is his unapologetic style brave, but politically smart — at least in building longterm coalitions of true believers.  Tuesday on NPR, he gave a mainstream audience the unadulterated case for nullification of immoral and unconstitutional federal laws. It’s great that he countered the ridiculous speculation of …

    Several days ago CampusReform.org published an article from the Indiana Standard, the independent conservative/libertarian student newspaper at Indiana University.  As reported there, Indiana University refused to host Dr. Thomas Woods on campus on the lame excuse that he doesn’t have “sufficient academic credibility.” Woods himself agreed and, with his typical wit, commented: “If it’s my …

  • Tom Woods Denied by a University which Spent $35K on John Edwards

    …and denied on the lame excuse that he doesn’t have “sufficient academic credibility,” of all things.  Maybe they’re confused about which Tom Woods this is?  Because his academic credentials include undergrad at Harvard, a doctorate from Columbia, success on the New York Times bestseller list, and a position as Senior Scholar at the Mises Institute.  …

  • Wise words from Tom Woods…

    Via lewrockwell.com and dailypaul.com, Tom Woods says: I think it’s a huge mistake to dismiss the Tea Party people just because they’re having Sarah Palin speak at their convention next month.  These people are a diverse lot, and many of them respect Ron Paul.  They know something is wrong, which is more than can be …
