There are many orthodoxies -- religious, political, philosophical and more. Like all other tyrannies, they seek conformity. Orthodoxy is to the mind as tyranny is to the person.
Over the course of decades, the Alaska Republican Party built itself a political powerhouse by erecting a big tent with room for a lot of divergent vi...
There will no doubt be people who take great pleasure from the latest fracas between Ron Paul and his grassroots activists. It just goes to show when money is involved out goes the concept of "liberty" and "grassroots" activism.
We learned this week that the Office of Management and Budget -- the largest office in the Executive Office of the President of the United States -- decided to make itself useful in eliminating government waste. And so it issued its Report on Useless Reports!
It's time for some new predictions! Anything could happen in 2013. Who knows? Maybe the SETI project's radio telescopes will receive an alien transmission and pinpoint the source to that UFO hovering over Donald Trump's head.
Why has the Libertarian Party -- and more importantly, the much broadly based new liberty movement -- failed to make a significant electoral impact, despite its recent tailwinds?

The Republican Party should welcome the Libertarian Party and other challengers in the political arena. The former should try to win by convincing the American people that the GOP really is the better option, not by preventing them from voting for someone else.
Why don't liberals admire Ayn Rand and her philosophy of objectivism, so forcefully presented in this book and film?
It is mostly likely that Tony Abbott, the Australian opposition leader, would have probably made Mr. Romney pay much more dearly for his miserable "47 percent" comment than Mr. Obama did.
My impression is that Romney is a decent, intelligent, capable man who'd probably make a pretty good president a la GHW Bush -- non-ideological, prudent, careful. But he's a package deal, and many in the GOP coalition have said and done things that scare the bejesus out of the country.
Are third-party voters betraying the Republican Party, or are these voters a product of the Republican Party betraying the ideals of small government?
I'll give him credit: Mitt Romney trounced his opponents in the Republican debates. But did you see that crop of crazies battling for King or Queen of the Parallel Universe?
