"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
                                             -- George Washington

"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid.

We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget."

Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Dr. Ron Paul

"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."
                                             -- Congressman Ron Paul

End the Fed by Dr. Ron Paul

"The government is best which governs least."
                                                       -- Thomas Jefferson

Study after study has shown that having children does not make people happier. In fact, a so-called "happiness gap" exists between people who have kids and people who don't, and parents often pay a "happiness penalty" when they have children, research has

Recently, researchers studied data from 22 countries and found that the United States has the largest happiness shortfall between parents and non-parents, even larger than the gap found in similar nations like Great Britain and Australia. And in other developed Western countries, like Norway, Finland, Sweden, Hungary and Russia, the gap didn't exist at all. In fact, sometimes parents were even happier than non-parents.

According to the Home School Legal Defense Association, the world's largest homeschool advocacy organization, the letter from the district claimed, "Under California law, a home school is not a private school.

However, it was eight years ago when a senior level court in the state concluded that state law permits homeschooling "as a species of private education." That ruling came in a case in which the court first ruled the other way and essentially ordered homeschoolers into a government-approved program. But when WND broke the story, a coalition of homeschool interests joined to ask for the judges to reconsider, which they did.

Farmers in Nebraska, Minnesota, Massachusetts, and New York are staging something of a mechanical revolt. They're attempting to get legislation passed in their states that would enable them.

At the root of the morass is the software that helps run modern tractors and their sensors, diagnostic tools, and other high-tech elements. If farmers so much as open the metaphorical hood to check out the computers they could be violating the federal act, reports Modern Farmer.

A group of San Diego parents has filed a federal lawsuit against California's new law that eliminates nearly all exemptions to childhood vaccinations.

The suit was filed Friday, the day the law took effect. It asks the court to declare the law unconstitutional. The lawsuit claims that eliminating the personal and religious exemptions to childhood vaccines violates parental rights. It also argues that the plaintiffs have legitimate concerns about the timing and safety of mandated vaccines.

As companies shun genetically modified ingredients, they're buying more sugar extracted from sugar cane rather than beets. Sugar beet farmers are thinking of going back to conventional beets.

It's all because about eight years ago, nearly all the farmers who grow sugar beets in the United States decided to start growing genetically modified versions of their crop. The GMO beets, which can tolerate the weedkiller glyphosate, otherwise known as Roundup, made it easier for them to get rid of weeds. They really didn't expect any problems. Just in the past two years, though, that's changed. Many food companies have decided to label their products as non-GMO.
