“...no man may initiate the use of physical force against others. No man—or group or society or government—has the right to assume the role of a criminal and initiate the use of physical compulsion against any man. Men have the right to use physical force only in retaliation and only against those who initiate its use. The ethical principle involved is simple and clear-cut: it is the difference between murder and self-defense. A holdup man seeks to gain a value, wealth, by killing his victim; the victim does not grow richer by killing a holdup man. The principle is: no man may obtain any values from others by resorting to physical force.” Ayn Rand

  The Opponents Of Obamacare Are Completely Missing The Point  
Contrary to the conservatives' dreams, there's no way that problems with the government's website is going to sink ObamaCare. A year from now, no one will remember it. No merely practical difficulties can stop a program that people think is morally required. (more)
     
  Senator Lee Not All Tea Party Candidates are Your Friend  
. . . focusing on the Democrats’ failures will not lead the Republicans to success. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) understands this, and he is busy trying to articulate the Republican vision for America. Unfortunately, while the senator’s fans may view him as a champion of free enterprise, Lee’s vision isn’t fundamentally different from the president’s. (more)
     
 

Let's Call The Democrats' Bluff On Immigration

 
Cynics say that Democrats want more immigration only because the immigrants will vote Democratic. But are they cynics, or perceptive observers? There’s a simple way to find out, and the Republicans should use it. (more)
     
 

No Moral Grounds for Obamacare

    Robin Hoods Don't Smash Shop Windows

    Personal Responsibility and Healthcare  
We cannot assume personal responsibility for our medical care by abdicating the freedom to make our own decisions about it.
