We Need Actual Free Trade, Not the TPP

Share

by Ryan McMaken at the Mises Institute

Brendan Nyhan at The New York Times seems to be under the impression that the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) has something to do with free trade. Nyhan writes that the TPP

is the latest step in a decades-long trend toward liberalizing trade — a somewhat mysterious development given that many Americans are skeptical of freer trade.

But Americans with higher incomes are not so skeptical. They — along with businesses and interest groups that tend to be affiliated with them — are much more likely to support trade liberalization.

Nyhan is probably correct that much of the population — especially the part that’s never studied economics — is against the lowering of trade barriers.

The Lehigh Valley deserves a Congressman who will defend liberty like Rep. Thomas Massie

Share

On Monday June 1st Representative Thomas Massie spoke from the House floor to defend Liberty and praise the restoration of the 4th Amendment due to the expiration of the Patriot Act. When was the last time you heard your Representative Charlie Dent take to the floor of the House and defend Liberty and the Constitution? I don’t remember ever hearing Representative Dent stand in defense of Liberty. Do you?

 

Designer Drugs: A New, Futile Front in the War on Illegal Drugs

Share

by Ted Galen Carpenter at the Cato Institute

News media accounts abound regarding the proliferation of synthetic or “designer” drugs that produce physical and psychological effects similar to those of traditional mind-altering substances such as marijuana, cocaine, and heroin. There is a bewildering variety of the new drugs, most of which until recently were not covered by existing laws. The array of synthetic drugs often seems limited only by the creativity of enterprising chemists.

The daunting task of trying to outlaw substances that can sometimes regain legal status with a modest change in chemical makeup has caused consternation among officials in the United States and other countries determined to stamp out drug abuse. Policymakers have scrambled to come up

Senator Scott Wagner’s views on the PA Budget

Share

Good Morning:The purpose of this email is to give you an update on the PA State budget and give you some of my insights on how our government in Harrisburg is operating.Many people are asking me whether I see Governor Wolf’s budget being passed by June 30th.I entered the Pennsylvania State Senate in April of last year, and by that time the majority of the budget process had already taken place, so this is my first real experience with the budget.This year is also different because I serve on the Senate Appropriations Committee.

I reported in previous emails that I attended 33 of 35 appropriations hearings in March and April with agencies and entities affected by the budget.

This is my prediction –

Senate treaty power no more

Share

by Robert Romano at Net Right Daily and Americans for Limited Government

The Senate is systematically ceding its constitutional power to ratify treaties by a two-thirds majority.

In a 98 to 1 vote, the Senate voted for legislation that will allow a deal that effectively could end economic sanctions against Iran and allow Tehran to acquire nuclear weapons with which to threaten the region and U.S. national security.

Oh sure, members will pretend they are gaining a say in “overseeing” the deal. For example, here was a statement from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas): “Ultimately, I voted yes on final passage because it may delay, slightly, President Obama’s ability to lift the Iran sanctions and it ensures we

Is the USA Freedom Act the Best We Can Expect Right Now?

Share

by Scott Shackford at Reason.com

It doesn’t appear to be easy to support the USA Freedom Act. The Act’s full real name is the “Uniting and Strengthening America by Fulfilling Rights and Ending Eavesdropping, Dragnet-Collection, and Online Monitoring Act.” Knowing the full name of the act helps explain why privacy supporters aren’t shouting from the rafters over the legislation, even if they are supporting it. As is the case with many other bills with elaborate names, the USA Freedom Act doesn’t actually do what its name states.

The USA Freedom Act (H.R. 2048) is Congress’ response to the public revelation and the following outrage that the National Security Agency (NSA) has been for years secretly collecting mass

A Law-Abiding Pennsylvania Gun Owner Fights Back in Court Against Harassment

Share

by LVTP 2nd Amendment Committee

Law-abiding Hazelton citizen George Irizarry seeks $400,000 in a lawsuit against police who allegedly harassed him for exercising his Second Amendment rights to wear a gun on his hip, according to an article on standardspeaker.com.

Years ago, George Irizarry decided to carry his guns—sometimes two at once—in plain view to “inform other Pennsylvanians that they have the same right,” according to an earlier standardspeaker.com article. Unfortunately, that rattled some area residents who called the police on him; even worse, the cops apparently didn’t bother asking the complainers if the gun carrier simply had a holstered firearm, which is perfectly legal in most parts of Pennsylvania, or if his was pointing it an innocent person or otherwise using it

Vince Vaughn Gives His Views on the Second Amendment to UK Reporter

Share

During a recent interview for the UK version of GQ, Actor Vince Vaughn was asked some questions on important issues like the second amendment. Many people are aware of the strong libertarian views held by Mr. Vaughn, but some may be surprised to learn of his strong stance on Constitutional issues.

When asked about his views on the second amendment Mr. Vaughn responded “I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don’t have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It’s not about duck hunting; it’s about the ability of
