Thoughts, essays, and writings on Liberty. Written by the heirs of Patrick Henry.

“To be GOVERNED is to be watched, inspected, spied upon, directed, law-driven, numbered, regulated, enrolled, indoctrinated, preached at, controlled, checked, estimated, valued, censured, commanded, by creatures who have neither the right nor the wistom nor the virtue to do so. To be GOVERNED is to be at every operation, at every transaction noted, registered, counted, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, prevented, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, drilled, fleeced, exploited, monopolized, extorted from, squeezed, hoaxed, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, vilified, harrassed, hunted down, abused, clubbed, disarmed, bound, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, derided, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality.”     P. J. Proudhon,    General Idea of the Revolution in the Nineteenth Century

Hello all…

by Jason Pye

First let me say thanks to Brad for allowing me to post here. This is a blog that has been a regular read for me for a several months now and I’m honored to be given the privilege to post here.

As Brad has said, I have my own site, JasonPye.com, which is a blog which is generally focused on my home county and Georgia politics. I live in a very “red” county and my blog has become a source of news to my community, so it’s hard for me to get into libertarian and capitalist philosophy. I also contribute to Peach Pundit, a blog dedicated to Georgia politics.

I look forward to posting here so I can get more into libertarian philosophy in current events.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I must go watch the third season of Bullshit! that came in the mail today.
