The Profit Incentives Driving The Police State

by John W. Whitehead. If there is an absolute maxim by which the federal government seems to operate, it is that the American taxpayer always gets ripped off.

John Stossel: Political Arrogance

Candidates advocate for a big fat government.   After the Iowa caucus results, it looks like Hillary Clinton vs. Marco Rubio in November! They lead the betting at ElectionBettingOdds.com.

Neil MacDonald: More State Power, Not Free Speech, Likely To Be The Actual We-Are-Charlie Result
