by Skip October 2, 2011

Like the questioner said, "This troubles me greatly" During the Q & A session of yesterday’s Granite Oath PAC, a retired US Marine officer asked this question (3:49-8:25): This last week, your own Lt.

I have had many discussions with libertarians who say "dropping the atom bombs in World War II on Japan was a war crime!" Such foolishness partakes of a certain lack of historical perspective, as do many "pure" libertartian positions (not to mention those of the political Left, which are always wrong). So here’s a little […]

by Skip October 2, 2011

Of COURSE other "issue advocates" are going to start showing up at higher profile political events.  In this case, unionists from the Union Leader showed up to make their case why Ovide Lamontagne and Gov.

Socialist Fallacies

by Steve MacDonald October 2, 2011

Socialist Fallacies is a book written by Yves Guyot and readily available in the public domain as a pdf.  If you have not read it, I highly recommend it.  Every page (so far) is loaded with observations about socialism that are as relevant today as they were in the early 1900’s.  Guyot relates the problems […]
