My dad spent a considerable sum of money every month to send me to a Catholic grade school in Northeast Philadelphia in the 1980s. It was a decent working class institution. Our first subject in the morning was Religion. It went downhill from there. Discipline was emphasized. Actually, it was shoved down our throats.

This past weekend in the Philadelphia suburb of Willow Grove, eight courageous liberty activists nullified a suspicionless sobriety checkpoint. I interview Jim Babb, one of the participants.
If we build it, they will come. If we will join together and construct new libertarian societies starting right now, then we will find what we need to accomplish our goals.
As I was preparing for my trip to Gigante last month, I found a mysterious audio file on my voice recorder. I couldn’t figure out where it was from. Then I recognized the voice of Enrique “Henry” Trevino, the US marshal who arrested me and twice swore out false affidavits against me just a little […]
An FBI agent with the New Hampshire Joint Terrorism Task Force is recruiting activists to inform on Free State Project members. That’s what activist Pete Eyre says in the above video, released by Cop Block yesterday. Keene police brought marijuana activist Rich Paul to an interrogation room yesterday where FBI agent Phil Christiana asked him […]
I‘m always surprised when people don’t grok the concept of leadership. I don’t know why but I seem to regularly “get it” on an instinctual basis. So it’s like having a sixth sense.
