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

“Sir, I agree to this Constitution, with all its Faults, if they are such; because I think a General Government necessary for us, and there is no Form of Government but what may be a Blessing to the People if well administered; and I believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a Course of Years, and can only end in Despotism as other Forms have done before it, when the People shall become so corrupted as to need Despotic Government, being incapable of any other.”     Benjamin Franklin,    Final Speech at the Constitutional Convention

Quote(s) Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

First, Megan McArdle:

I am a big fan of roundabouts, and wish that America used more of them in place of intersections or interchanges. Unfortunately, because we don’t have a lot of roundabouts here, drivers don’t quite get them, and they tend to behave very aggressively–particularly, for some reason, those coming off of K Street.

Hmm, I wonder what that reason could be. Could it have to do with the attitudes of the type of people that spend most of their time there?

Next, The Big Picture, with the apt title “‘Recovery’ Bypassing Small Businesses”:

The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) released its monthly Small Business Economic Trends (SBET) survey, and the outlook for small businesses is still not good. The NFIB counts its membership at about 350,000 small businesses.

I think Ron Paul has the key to understanding that one.
