Despite the fact that the Supreme Court’s current case-load consists almost exclusively of judicial review cases, the Constitution gives the courts no authority to take such action. The courts assume this power based on a 1794 Supreme Court ruling which first declared a law unconstitutional. The power of judicial review is a serious conflict of interest issue, giving the federal government the power to judge the constitutionality of its own laws. It also gives an unintended amount of power to the judicial branch of the U.S. government, which was originally meant to be the weakest branch of the federal government. Read more…
At the beginning of his 2nd term, President Ronald Reagan sifted through throngs of previously issued executive orders and found hundreds of them from as far back as 1907 that were no longer needed or were no longer applicable. This novel concept for some reason has yet to be realized again since the Gipper last cleaned that closet back in 1986, almost 30 years ago. Read more…
In a recent article the Washington Examiner quoted Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) as saying “The only thing Putin respects is strength… At this point the Russians are openly laughing at the president.” It’s not just Russia, it seems the entire world is laughing at Obama. The only people with any fear of his regime are American citizens. The increasingly violent police, federal authorities and tyrannical legislation and executive orders leaves my head spinning.

I experienced escalating ridiculousness of the rules of engagement between my two deployments to Iraq in 2004 and 2006. I can only imagine how asinine they have become at this point. When the inanimate property of foreign individuals is of more importance to our government than the lives of our servicemen, we have a serious corruption of priorities. When calls for artillery from our men are denied due to the possibility of collateral damage to civilian property, we have a problem. Read more…
A great idea out of Tennessee that didn’t make it past state legislators. A bill from 2006 would have required towns that generates more than half of its revenue from speeding tickets to use blue-colored speed limit signage. The motivation behind this bill was certain towns that intentionally lower speed limits to unreasonably low levels in order to generate more revenue from speeding tickets. This undermines the purpose of speed limits, which is supposed to be for public safety, not government revenue. But we all know how that goes.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
