[Speech by former Governor of the Reserve Bank, former National and ACT leader Don Brash. Reproduced with Don's permission—Linz]

IS FREEDOM OF SPEECH UNDER THREAT IN NEW ZEALAND?

I’m honoured to be the first speaker at this all-day conference on liberty.

I should perhaps begin by saying that I will disappoint the strict libertarians.


SOLO Quote of the Day

"You know whom they are not initiating violence against? Yaron Brook. Onkar Ghate. Elan Journo. Harry Binswanger. Anyone associated with the Ayn Rand Institute. And you know why they don't protest Brook when he speaks on campus? Because he says absolutely nothing controversial with respect to the culture wars. He's right there smack dab in the middle of what Tom Woods calls the 'three-by-five card of allowable opinion' when it comes to any issue important to the Cultural Marxists.


Dying Vet to Filth, 2013

A letter from a Democrat to two Democrat Washington State senators. Mr Schoonover died shortly after penning it. Of course, what is needed now is not term limits but a second revolution.

Dear Senator:

I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses shortly after his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those virtues he felt important – honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country, paid my taxes, worked hard, volunteered and donated my fair share of money, time and artifacts.

"Winston, come into the dining room, it's time to eat," Julia yelled to her husband. "In a minute, honey, it's a tie score," he answered. Actually Winston wasn't very interested in the traditional holiday football game between Detroit and Washington.

Rick Santorum Is a Principled Enemy of Liberty

by Robert Tracinski

Like just about everyone on the right, I have been hoping that Republican voters would eventually be able to rally around an alternative to Mitt Romney. He is too much of a middle-of-the-road pragmatist who has tailored his positions to the political expediencies of his career, which is not what we really need to turn this country back from its lurch toward socialism and bankruptcy.

Judge Roger Vinson, in Pensacola, Fla., ruled that as a result of the unconstitutionality of the "individual mandate" that requires people to buy insurance, the entire law must be declared void.
