And now for something positive

We all need a boost to stay encouraged in the uphill battle against rising statism (from both sides of the aisle.) Today I received just such a boost and thought I would share it with you.

Even to this day -- in the face of all the political and economic problems -- the basic system of Checks and Balances still works, and can work very well when "we the people" become engaged and vigilant in watching what "our" government is doing, especially what our Congress is up to.

When "we the people" remain indifferent to the political workings of our government, we get growing statism -- when we become vigilant and engaged, we move towards liberty.

--John Dick @ John's Ponderings on

Thanks, John. I needed that.

Read the rest and get a boost for yourself.

Thanks, Beth!
I got good news about the younger generation. The Liberty Kids spent 40 minutes and got a traffic ticket, but they asserted their rights with the NOLA police. And didn't lose their cool.

Wow. I checked out that story and watched the live-stream video. Those kids were brave---and thankfully well-informed and polite. What a difference knowing the constitution, (and modern technology) can make! Thanks for pointing me to this impressive story!
