Unlawful rental registries: Coming soon to a city near you

from The Free Thought Project: Unlike the federal government, local government cannot print money. In order to grow, they have to mine for new revenue sources.

Look around! Common law works. government statute doesn’t.

from The Daily Bell: Wouldn’t that be great if you could simply base your actions on common sense and respect for the standards of a community?
Justice is a Result, Not Just a Process

Rand Paul: ‘I won’t be bribed or bullied’ on repeal vote

from The Hill: Rand Paul is one of the few politicians who was actually committed to repealing Obamacare. He has voted to do so each time. But he will not rubber stamp Obamacare Lite.

John Stossel: Libertarian Lite

Lighten up, truth can be scary. In this year's Republican presidential primaries, Sen. Rand Paul got little traction. In 2012, his father failed. That year, the Libertarian Party candidate, former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, got just 1 percent of the vote. We libertarians must be doing something wrong. Maybe our anti-government message is too   ... MORE

Rand Paul Weighs In On The Apple-FBI Dispute

by Elias J. Atienza.      Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told CN2 that Apple shouldn’t be compelled to hack the encrypted iPhone of San Bernadino shooter, Syed Farook. Apple has strongly opposed a court ordered request by the FBI to open the phone, citing that it could create a backdoor and weaken the security and privacy  of users. “What’s extraordinary ... MORE

Jacob Sullum: What Rand Paul Brought To The Race

The fate of the only small government candidate.  During the last Republican presidential debate in which he participated, Rand Paul condemned the National Security Agency's mass collection of Americans' telephone records, cautioned against reckless intervention in Syria's civil war, and declared that a "true fiscal conservative" must "look   ...

Joel Kurtinitis: Ted Cruz’s Quiet Coup In Iowa

The process of discovery.    I came home exhausted on Caucus night, just as I had many other nights in the year leading up to our first-in-the-nation nominating contest. As a veteran of the Ron Paul revolution, I considered myself a hardened political warrior, charging the trenches of the establishment and lobbing internet hand grenades at     ... MORE

Nick Gillespie: Two Cheers (& More!) For Rand Paul!

This was only the beginning.      With Rand Paul's suspension of his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination comes an understandable deluge of autopsies, elegies, screw-yous, and snarky subtweets. Yet I come not to bury the "libertarian-ish" Paul but to praise him. In five short years as a senator, he's already elevated a host ... MORE

The Only Small Government Candidate Leaves The Race

by Anthony L. Fisher.  The era of big government continues. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul has suspended his campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. In a statement released this morning, Paul wrote: It's been an incredible honor to run a principled campaign for the White House. Today, I will end where I began, ready and willing to    ... MORE

Jacob Sullum: Corny Crony Capitalism In Iowa

Only 2 candidates won't pander to ethanol lobby.    The "report card" from America's Renewable Future, a biofuel industry group, is not complicated. If you are a presidential candidate participating in Monday's Iowa caucuses and you support "the commonsense, bipartisan Renewable Fuel Standard," you get a "good rating," symbolized by a fuel    ...

John Stossel: Running On Empty

Using tax dollars to buy votes in Iowa.      Cars run on fuel. Politicians run on votes, and they'll do almost anything to get them. That includes supporting mandates that force us to use ethanol, a fuel made from corn that Iowa farmers grow. They support ethanol because Iowa is the first state to vote on presidential candidates. Candidates     ... MORE

High Price Of Principles: Ted Cruz And Rand Paul Will Pay In Iowa For Their Failure To Pander To The Ethanol Lobby

by Alexander Bolton.      Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Rand Paul (Ky.) are trying to avoid an ethanol landmine in Iowa. Both Republican senators have criticized federal subsidies for ethanol, which are popular in Iowa, the state hosting the first Republican contest in the 2016 race for the White House. Iowa kingmakers in the party such as Sen. Chuck    ... MORE

Stop Expecting Rand Paul To Be Ron Paul

by Eric July.    Libertarian elitism is something that truly annoys me, but it really shows itself when we have these Rand Paul vs. Ron Paul discussions during our current election cycle. Do not get me wrong, it isn’t completely absurd that someone would compare a man to his father. But if one is alluding to an expectation that Rand is supposed to be   ... MORE
