"We are in a position to alter history."

Burt Gummer
Burt Gummer for President



Thunder, lightening, and Chicken Fried Snake. Er. . . Steak. I always say "snake". No doubt someday I'll be in a resturant and order Chicken Fried Snake and actually get it. Serve me right, no doubt.

I'm sure I had a direction in mind when I started the above paragraph but I got lost before I even got started. Story of my life.

Oh yeah, we're getting the summer rain up here in the mountains, so while the humidity has gotten out of the single-digits, it's also a bit cooler with afternoon cool winds and flashing lights and loud noises up in the sky. Also, we had chicken fried steak for dinner. Don't you wish I'd not been able to remember?

Questions for Presidential Candidates, Part One
by L. Neil Smith
As we are forced to wade deeper into that cesspool called the 2008 election season, it's important that we all assist the one or two good candidates we hope will bob up the surface to distinguish themselves from the foul dregs already starting to settle into the muck at the bottom.

CIA: Rogue Agency Run Amuck
by Jim Carter
The CIA has recently released the 'family jewels' that detail a great number of operations in which the Company offended societal norms or actually violated laws. Even then, it appears to be a mere gloss on their surreptitious actions.

Liberty and Celebrities in the News
by Daniel G. Jennings
Two celebrity stories now playing themselves out in the news have brought me to the keyboard to deliver a little libertarian commentary.

Goodbye America, Hello North American Union
by Alan Caruba
In a month, August 20 and 21, the leaders of the United States, Canada, and Mexico will sit down together in Montebello, Quebec to discuss making the borders between these three nations disappear. They will discuss progress on a vast highway project passing through America to link Mexico with Canada.

Is There Hope? Part 2
by Sean Gangol
In the first half of my article, I discussed how my outlook began to change, when I took a course on American government. It wasn't until I took the second half that I became a total cynic. This time I had a different instructor and her name was Dr. Harder. Her class was actually fun.

Bill of Non-rights
by Andrew G Eggleston
We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great- great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other such bed-wetters.

Sovereigns of the High Frontier Society
by Jim Davidson
The three founders of our group, myself, John Wiltbank, and Ken Bollinger, met through Free State Wyoming at the second annual jamboree back in 2005. I had in mind Victor Koman's book Kings of the High Frontier when I came up with the group's name. Though, "kings" are of course gender specific, and I wanted a term that would also include women.
