Don’t Let the Election Results Threaten Liberty
Americans face automatic tax hikes at the start of 2013 that would cripple a barely limping economy. But the federal government is running astronomical budget deficits, borrowing 40 cents for every dollar it spends. What to do?

Fighting for Freedom Against Reelected Obama
November, 7, 2012 -- Barack Obama’s reelection victory, with a narrow popular vote margin, does not constitute a mandate for his future policies; he didn’t give us specifics about them in any case.
