Tea Party Patriots: “Liberty 2, McConnell 0″

Tea Party Defeats Sen. McConnell for Second Time This Week Atlanta, GA - Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin and the American people declared victory this afternoon, after the Senate rejected Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's attempts to weaken and, ultimately, defeat the USA FREEDOM Act as passed by the House. After rejecting the Majority Leader's desire to renew the PATRIOT Act earlier this week, today's Senate action to maintain the USA FREEDOM Act in its original form was icing on the cake.

Not everyone around the world can gather with family in the safety and tranquility of their homes, enjoy a bountiful table of food, and say a prayer of thanks for their blessings. Yet in America, we are able to do all of these things and more because we ...

Or so described George Will last November: If courts once again become properly impatient with nonsensical explanations, much of what government does will become untenable. It is lovely that revitalized protection of the individual rights of property and striving may owe much to an abbey where all property is communal. It turns out he was right. From Ilya Shapiro at the Cato Institute’s blog comes the welcome news that regulations designed solely to protect the interests of entrenched businesses and the like are unconstitutional: Last week, the Institute for Justice scored a resounding victory for the right to earn an honest living in an unlikely ...
