"The Kinkster" spoke to us from his ranch in the Texas hill country recently to discuss his enduring music and literary career and his plans to saddle up again and try and unseat the incumbent Governor of Texas, Rick Perry, in the 2014 election.
Of course Mitt Romney supports redistribution. Everyone supports redistribution to some extent. It's literally how the government collects and spends tax revenue.
Beyond the censorship and ostracism politicians will create, libertarian journalists need to remember the one factor that is equally important to evading political regulations: winning public opinion.
As far as what we do right now in response to the tragic events of this week, it's actually pretty simple. Get our folks out of places they don't need to be -- and out of harm's way -- and cut off every dime of U.S. tax dollars we are sending to clearly ungrateful regimes.
Radical statements by Republicans aren't just gaffes; they reflect a cold-hearted, insensitive, mean-spirited, dishonest and ignorant attitude that is reflected in the way that they govern and make laws.
Lesbians, and liberals, and Clinton, oh my! What a week! I spent time in the belly of the beast: Charlotte, NC for the DNC. I have to admit, they put on a good show.

I really can't blame the no-show trio, however, for skipping Romney's coronation. I couldn't be bothered to go either and I live for these quadrennial political love-ins. Forget Hurricane Isaac. It was Tampa in August with Romney. That's all the reason I needed to stay home.
Day Two was the Day Of The Attack Dog. Who knows what tomorrow will bring?
Is the Fed to blame for our ills? A forthcoming film, The Bubble, makes that case.
In a competition, when someone cheats, he gets disqualified. The disqualification does not make the runner-up the winner. Rather, it reveals that the man who appeared to be the runner-up had been the winner all along. In the race for the GOP nomination for president, therefore, Ron Paul won.
What if the Republican Party had a real debate on Pentagon spending that addressed the underlying issue of what our military is for? Should we be poised to fight major wars of occupation and/or counterinsurgency like those in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Just take a look at the platform that will emerge from the GOP national convention. There will be plenty of rhetoric about freedom and limited government. But the party's actual policies will reflect a very different agenda.
