About This Blog

Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was the greatest economist of my time. His greatest works can be accessed here at no charge.

Mises believed that property, freedom and peace are and should be the hallmarks of a satisfying and prosperous society. I agree. Mises proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the prospect for general and individual prosperity is maximized, indeed, is only possible, if the principle of private property reigns supreme. What's yours is yours. What's mine is mine. When the line between yours and mine is smudged, the door to conflict opens. Without freedom (individual liberty of action) the principle of private property is neutered and the free market, which is the child of property and freedom and the mother of prosperity and satisfaction, cannot exist. Peace is the goal of a prosperous and satisfying society of free individuals, not peace which is purchased by submission to the enemies of property and freedom, but peace which results from the unyielding defense of these principles against all who challenge them.

In this blog I measure American society against the metrics of property, freedom and peace.

Even If Walker Wins Tonight, It's Not Over In Wisconsin

Unfortunately, thugs don't let up until they're beat to a pulp.

I predict that even if Walker wins tonight in Wisconsin, the election will be plagued by legal challenges, both from in-State filings and federal DOJ filings.

There are enough crazy loon, leftist judges in Wisconsin to do whatever the unions want, and Eric Holder didn't send his troops up there just for exercise.

Ironically, it's probably the Walker forces who will have the strongest case that the election was messed with. I was listening to the Chris Plante talk show today and he took a call from a caller who claimed to be riding to Wisconsin on a bus to vote illegally against Walker. The bus, along with 4 or 5 others was filled with 40-50 union members from Michigan. Here's the story via The Blaze.

What these union thugs and jerks have to realize is that ours is not a prison society. In this country we cooperate with others because we want to. If the unionists and leftists think they can force individuals Americans to cooperate with them, they've got another thing coming. Force and cooperation are contradictory ideas.

Twice before Americans have gone to battle with their brothers. A third time is not unthinkable.
