New Freedom Website
There’s a new freedom-oriented website out there: Freedom Politics. From their initial blog posting:
Lovers of liberty, rejoice. Today, we’re launching FreedomPolitics.com, a site dedicated to the pursuit and protection of freedom.
We’re not the only ones who think freedom needs a hand, but as a Freedom Communications site, we follow the model of an exceptional defender of liberty, R.C. Hoiles. [snip]
With the support of more than 25 newspapers across the country, including that flagship, FreedomPolitics.com will be a hub of news and commentary dedicated to spreading R.C. Hoiles’ vision and the ideas of liberty of liberty he loved.
Right now we’re just getting started (consider this our soft launch), and the website still has more features to come. We might bring in some website builder experts to help us along the way. So please don’t hesitate to let us know if something goes awry so we can iron it out. The site will go fully operational on Inauguration Day with a slate of commentary from the top minds in the freedom movement.
The first set of articles are great. My fave is from former co-worker Doug Bandow, who writes about our “Return to Liberal Interventionism.”
Barack Obama is nothing if not a unique politician. Despite his liberal background, he rushed to the center after the election.
Indeed, his foreign policy is starting to look like a slightly more reasonable version of Bush-McCain neoconservatism. The result may be promiscuous military intervention, but only after Washington takes the usual diplomatic steps and rounds up the usual allies.
The most disconcerting sign of the future is the appointment of Hillary Clinton as secretary of state. True, when testifying before the U.S. Senate she sounded like the model of responsibility: “We must build a world with more partners and fewer adversaries. Foreign policy must be based on a marriage of principles and pragmatism, not rigid ideology.”
I’m bookmarking the site and will be checking it out from time to time.
