Think Tanks Want To Solve The Opioid Crisis With A Military Invasion Of Mexico

Because going after the Afghanistan poppy fields worked just so well. The only practical way to solve the "Drug War" is decriminalizing drugs. Let the free market work. If it's legit, there's no way a criminal drug supplier can undersell.


The Myth of Drug Expiration Dates

Hmm, doesn't sound like the free market to me. Government interference is keeping you from knowing what you should.


US Lawmakers Seek to Throw Citizens in Prison for Decades if They Boycott Israel

I'm pretty sure this violates Article One, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution. Also the First, Fourth, Eighth, and Tenth Amendments. These idiot lawmakers have forgotten that their job is to protect and promote liberty, not to protect other nations from criticism.


Republicans Move to Kill a Rule That Makes It Easier to Sue Banks

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) should be abolished as quickly as possible. It does not answer to anyone, and yet has tremendous power over business and consumers.


We Are The Economy They Want to Regulate

“Strictly speaking, it’s not markets that can and should be free—it’s people.”


Poll showing Republican and Trump voters more motivated for 2018 has Dems worried

The constant attacks on Donald Trump make him look like a scrappy underdog who can stand up toe the establishment.


It's Much Worse Than We Feared

The damage that Obama did.


Trump's war of attrition against Obamacare

Obama care was designed to fail so government would have to intervene.


We Must Elect Senator Kid Rock

I still don't know if we should take this seriously. But for all the naysayers I have two questions. Why shouldn't he run? Could he be any worse?


Iraqis numb pain of Islamic State in newly re-opened bar

Sanity returns.


Narcotics legalization: Comparisons to Gun Control

“The USA (where there is a War On Drugs under way) has 30 times the overdose death rates per capita as Portugal (which legalized or decriminalized essentially all drugs 15 years ago)…”


This is Evergreen State College: “I was told that I couldn’t go into the room because I was white”

It's all about imposing new special privileges.

from crux № 19 - Free market

It constantly amazes me that the defenders of the free market are expected to offer certainty and perfection while government has only to make promises and express good intentions.

from crux № 10 - the system

We've been taught that government is supposed to govern and control the other guy.

That's the guy who is the problem.

Not us. Never us. It's not our fault.

Trump

Trump launched a missile attack on a nation which had not attacked the United States, and he did it without Congressional authorization.This is NOT a good thing.
