Is Obama a Conservative?
Not in the constitutionalist sense, obviously, but few people are. Indeed, the respect for America First, limited government, the rule of law and free enterprise that people sometimes use to define conservatism has been out of favor for a long time. Ron Paul is rarely described as one himself anymore.

As Lew Rockwell pointed out at the wonderful Campaign for Liberty rally in Minneapolis:

I for one no longer believe that Bush has betrayed conservatives. In fact, he has fulfilled conservatism, by completing the redefinition of the term that began many decades ago with Bill Buckley and National Review. Think of it realistically. What does conservatism today stand for? It stands for war. It stands for power. It stands for spying, jailing without trial, torture, counterfeiting without limit, and lying from morning to night.

There comes a time in the life of every believer in freedom when he must declare, without any hesitation, to have no attachment to the idea of conservatism.

Economy Flounders, Despite the Stimulus
A year after a nearly $800 billion stimulus package was passed, the U.S. economy still finds itself mired in mediocrity.

Economic growth is stagnant, unemployment remains higher than almost any time since the Great Depression and millions of Americans are upset that trillions of taxpayer dollars have been committed to numerous government bailout programs with no improvement of the economy within sight.

They question, rightfully, is where this money is going and why it hasn't been as helpful as the government has claimed.

The problems with stimulus packages are manifold. The primary reason they fail is because they do not address the roots of the problem. If you are unable to identify the cause of your problem, then your solution is doomed to fail.

The Snare of Incremental Health Care
Opponents of (more) government control of health care and health insurance are breathing a sigh of relief after Tuesday's upset senatorial election in Massachusetts. But now that the celebrations are subsiding, I feel compelled to warn that the most perilous days may lie ahead.

How can that be, when Sen. Edward Kennedy's seat is about to be assumed by a man who campaigned on a promise to vote against Obamacare, depriving the ruling majority of its critical 60th vote?

It's simple: In place of 2,000-page omnibus monstrosities, we are likely to see a series of micro "reforms" -- that is, government interventions -- that may well garner bipartisan support. The new buzzword on Capitol Hill is "incrementalism." This is a strategy to break the big House and Senate bills into several small ones -- to slice the salami into manageable portions. Instead of one 2,000-page piece of legislation, we might see ten 200-pagers, or perhaps 100 20-pagers.

Ron Paul on Larry King w/ Keynesian Robert Reich 1/25/10
Ron Paul on Larry King Live with Robert Reich who is an unapologetic Keynesian. Sorry for the video stuttering during the first segment. King gave Reich the last word who used it to continue to spread the fallacy that Hoover was the cause of the Great Depression and FDR and the War got us out. It's really too bad Ron Paul had no time to counter that falsehood, but I suppose Reich played the media game perfectly by making these points when he knew Paul had no more time.

'Is the minority leader Ron Paul?'
A senior administration official tells POLITICO's Mike Allen: "It's amazing that Senate [Republicans] can barely muster a majority for a Republican who was named Time's 'Man of the Year' and who served in the Bush White House, was appointed to his current job by President George W. Bush and has the full support of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Main Street American business. And their main complaint is that he saved the world from what Jim Cramer has called the 'financial stone age.' Is the minority leader Ron Paul? Someone's learned the wrong lesson from the MA race and it's not President Obama."

Legalize Competing Currencies
We have been on a disastrous course for a long time. The money supply has doubled in the last year, our debt is unsustainable, the value of the dollar is going to continue its drop, and those Americans who understand where we are headed feel helpless and held hostage by foolish policy makers in Washington. When the bills finally come due and the dollar stops working we are in for some real social, economic and political chaos. That is, unless we take some major steps now to allow for a peaceful transition in the future. These steps are laid out in my legislation to legalize competing currencies.

Fed Bashers: Washington's Odd Couple
Today the audience for the Paul-Sanders view of the Fed is a large and serious one, despite the unconventional political views of the pair -- one lawmaker hails from the right of the political spectrum, the other from the left.

Inside the House, Paul is known as "Dr. No" for automatically opposing funding any government spending not explicitly authorized by the Constitution -- including homeland security and hurricane disaster relief for his own state. In the Senate, which he joined in 2006, Sanders, an independent, rankles moderate Democratic allies with his unapologetic stance as a democratic socialist who favors single-payer health care and routinely denounces corporate greed.

Paul's support of making gold legal tender, or Sanders' assertion that the U.S. should model itself on Scandinavia, might still draw smug snickers. But no one is laughing at their joint legislative assault on the Federal Reserve -- least of all officials at the central bank itself.

"Every once in a while in American history, money becomes the issue. This is one of those times," says Paul, who can barely keep up with the media and speaking demands growing out of his anti-Fed book. Some two dozen grass-roots groups representing the left (Campaign for America's Future) and the right (Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform) have thrown their support behind Sanders and Paul, underscoring the breadth of the anti-Fed zeal.

Rule By The Rich
But what can Obama do other then spout more rhetoric? Now that the five Republicans on the Supreme Court have overturned decades of U.S. law and given corporations the ability to buy every American election, Democrats and Republicans can be nothing but pawns for a plutocracy. Most Americans are hard pressed, but the corporations have only begun to milk them. The American public cannot even get reliable information about their plight as the "MainStream Media" has been concentrated into a few corporate hands that do not permit independent reporting. The media is as dependent on corporate money as are politicians. How can President Obama restart an economy that has been moved offshore? Don't look to Washington for answers to these questions

Keynes vs Hayek (Govt control vs Free Mkt) - the argument in Rap?
Entertaining for the slightly wonky set - or if you want to see economics portrayed as Hip-Hop (sorta). I am of the free market persuasion in that people should be allowed to make up their own minds and have the freedom to be in the market as THEY wish - and not under the rubric of "but we know better" as the Keynesian believers as all Progressives are. After all, without the reins of control, they'd be, er, free marketers which is hardly the truth (e.g., Obama's words of not wanting to run the banks, the car companies, the hospitals certainly belie his actions).

Warmongering vs. the Sanctity of Life
Do adults have the same right to life as unborn children? Do foreigners have the same right to life as unborn American babies? Many pro-lifers don't think so. It is hypocrisy in the highest degree to talk about the sanctity of life, the evils of abortion, the horrors of partial-birth abortion, and to vocally claim that one is pro-life, but then turn around and show contempt for, or indifference to, the lives of adults and foreigners. Are the lives of unborn children more valuable than the lives of adults? Are the lives of unborn American babies more valuable than the lives of foreigners?

Democrat or Republican, There's Always More Money for War
The Obama Administration wants to freeze discretionary spending--except for the military.

Reports CNN:

The proposed freeze, which could help position Obama in the political center by sharpening his credentials on fiscal discipline, would exempt the budgets of the departments of Defense, Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs, along with some international programs.

"We are at war, and we're going to make sure our troops are funded adequately," one of the senior officials said.

Precisely how does this differ from the Bush administration? So much for "change" in Washington.

Apparently the more things "change," the more they stay the same!

Independent Jake Towne Skyrockets to a “Stunningly High” 8% in the Polls
Today the incumbent released some startling numbers from a recent poll paid for by his campaign. The results: Towne 8%, Republocrat A 53%, Republocrat B27%. Scott Kraus of the Morning Call reported my total as “stunningly high” and he is correct – it is a tribute to both the hard work of the campaign’s volunteers in spreading the message so far, and the growing discontent of the district with the Washington, DC establishment. This is impressive since it is still quite early in the election season, and I have not been able to spread the message to a high amount of residents just yet – we obviously have 92% left to cover – and I have not yet even begun to fight.

Evils that are killing America
While conservatives like Glenn Beck bemoan the progressive "killing me softly" approach to transforming America into a socialist-fascist city state there are at least two other phenomena that are working toward that same end. Both of them come from the Right side of the aisle. All three together create a blueprint for the demise of America as our Founders knew it.

The evil triumvirate killing machine aimed at America is made up of:

1. The progressive agenda.
2. Bipartisanship.
3. The so-called "war on terror".

Ever since Obama's inauguration we've all become hyper-aware of the progressive agenda thanks to commentators like Glenn Beck. The progressives don't even want the Constitution to be a "god-damned piece of paper". That would mean it actually exists to them. They'd much rather it never have existed. Sure, Obama is a "constitutional scholar", but all the evidence suggests he only studied the constitution in order to figure out methods to betray it.

The Capitalist Conspiracy by G. Edward Griffin
"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence

Government is Too Big to Succeed
Last week, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission kicked off their first round of hearings on the causes of the economic meltdown on Wall Street. The commission is being compared to the the Pecora Commission launched in 1932 to investigate the causes of the Great Depression. The Pecora commission is beloved by those who believe the solution to every problem is more laws because it was used to justify a number of new laws, including Glass-Steagall. Of course, none of those laws addressed the real causes of the Great Depression. It was the introduction of unsound monetary policy and central economic planning pursued by the Federal Reserve that really threw everything off balance. The Fed was founded in 1913 to stabilize the economy and prevent a recurrence of the short-lived Panic of 1907, but instead it promptly produced the Great Depression which lasted more than 15 years.

The Pecora Commission was stacked with big government sympathizers who blamed the free market and the gold standard without question, and without any consideration of government interference in the economy. This panel is no different. Never will they contemplate how government steered us into this crisis, and what perverse incentives can be removed or repealed so that the market will function more smoothly. Never will they discuss how investment should come from savings, not debt. Never will it occur to them that fiat money, artificially low interest rates and the whole Federal Reserve System might be unwise and unstable, not to mention unconstitutional. The answer will always be more government regulation and oversight. It is predictable that this government panel will eventually come to the firm conclusion that government needs to be bigger, and that the market is just too free.

How sad is this when exactly the opposite is true?

The Horrors of Socialized Medicine in Austria
When I heard President Obama announce that the universal health care system will save us money, I knew I had to speak up. I have the wisdom (my age is over the speed limit), the knowledge, and the experience to speak to this controversial subject. It is imperative that Americans be informed by an independent person with nothing to gain; someone who has actually worked in a government-run healthcare system such as what might soon be forced upon us. Here is the insider's truth of what going on with any government bureaucracy.

Press Release: Voters Reject Government Health Care
Last night, voters in Massachusetts continued a growing trend by sending the message to Washington that the unpopular health care legislation may be a serious liability for its supporters in Congress.

Over the past few months, citizens nationwide have voiced their displeasure with the proposed government takeover of medicine through rallies, town hall disruptions, and recent elections. According to national polls and polls of Massachusetts voters, much of the public recognizes the need for reform but disagrees with the measures offered by the current health care bill.

Alternatives to the current bill, like the ones offered by Campaign for Liberty's project Operation Health Freedom (http://www.OperationHealthFreedom.com), may have a better chance of giving the public the solutions they seek.

"Campaign for Liberty is proposing that Congress try passing legislation that promotes true health freedom," said John Tate, President of Campaign for Liberty. "The same government that has given us trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities for Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security is not going to fix our health care system with this latest bureaucratic scheme. It's time to vote health freedom."

The Operation Health Freedom package includes legislation introduced by Congressman Ron Paul. The cornerstone of the package is H.R. 1495, the Comprehensive Health Care Reform Act of 2009, which provides all Americans with a tax credit for 100% of health care expenses, a tax credit for premiums for high-deductible insurance policies connected with a Health Savings Account (HSA), and allows seniors to use funds in an HSA to pay for a medigap policy. In addition, it makes all medical expenses tax deductible.

Also included are H.R. 2629, a bill that prevents the government from requiring people to purchase health insurance, and H.R. 3217, introduced by Congressman John Shadegg, which permits the purchase of health insurance across state lines and will ultimately lower costs due to the resulting competition.

The First Anniversary of Hope and Change
A year has passed since the maligned and lame-duck Bush presidency gave way to the hope and change of the Obama administration. For the first couple months last year, criticism of Obama was regarded as premature. We had to give him the benefit of the doubt for the obligatory although arbitrary 100 days. When that period passed, Obama was shielded from criticism on the grounds that his predecessor had made such a disastrous mess of domestic and foreign policy that the new president would need yet more time before he could be fairly evaluated. That isolation from criticism did give way eventually, and few today have the temerity to insist that we delay our scrutiny until the president is reelected in 2012.

A fundamental element in a meaningful critique of Obama's first year must take account of whether his policies have succeeded on his own terms. Has he represented the hope and change that he promised, that became the rallying cry of tens of millions and swept the internet in youtube videos showcasing artists and celebrities at once pleading and predicting that America would usher in the political reform of a lifetime?

The Rule of Law Has Been Lost
What is the greatest human achievement? Many would answer in terms of some architectural or engineering feat: The Great Pyramids, skyscrapers, a bridge span, or sending men to the moon. Others might say the subduing of some deadly disease or Einstein's theory of relativity.

The greatest human achievement is the subordination of government to law. This was an English achievement that required eight centuries of struggle, beginning in the ninth century when King Alfred the Great codified the common law, moving forward with the Magna Carta in the thirteenth century and culminating with the Glorious Revolution in the late seventeenth century.

The success of this long struggle made law a shield of the people. As an English colony, America inherited this unique achievement that made English-speaking peoples the most free in the world.

In the first decade of the twenty-first century, this achievement was lost in the United States and, perhaps, in England as well.

The American people's elected representatives in Congress endorsed the executive branch's overthrow of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Law schools and bar associations were essentially silent in the face of this overthrow of mankind's greatest achievement. Some parts of the federal judiciary voted with the executive branch; other parts made a feeble resistance. Today in the name of "the war on terror," the executive branch does whatever it wants. There is no accountability.

Great Ron Paul Rally
Over the weekend in Atlanta, more than 1,000 libertarians gathered to cheer Ron Paul at his Campaign for Liberty event. Other speakers included Tom Woods, Tom DiLorenzo, and me. And thanks to C4L for holding a Mises Institute session. I knew this would be a great crowd—all Ron’s people are—and they applauded his calls to end the Fed, stop Obamacare, learn Austrian economics, and fight terrorism by getting out of the Middle East and bringing all the troops home. But their greatest reaction was to Ron's denunciation of the CIA. How neat is that? So I talked about the CIA, too, at my luncheon briefing, and its long history of death and destruction, and terrorism-producing interventionism.

After my formal talk on the Misesian vision, a man said to me: "In a recent article, Edward H. Crane, CEO of the Cato Institute, said 'Ron Paul hangs around with the wrong people.' Did he mean you guys?" "Yes," I said.

"And was this the same article where Mr. Crane added, 'I hate to be a name dropper, but I had lunch with Ben Bernanke in the White House mess the week before he was confirmed [as Fed chairman]. Great guy.'?" "Yes," I was told.*

Another person asked if I was bothered to be called the "chief Paulestinian" by warmonger David Horowitz. No, I said. I thought it was at least funny. Previously, on Glenn Beck, he charged that I was "in bed with terrorists," i.e., opposed to perpetual war in the Middle East. And adds a friend: "Beats the heck out of being called a 'Paultard', now doesn't it?"

*CORRECTION: Thanks to Chris for pointing out that Edward Crane said "nice guy" and not "great guy" about the hangoutable-with Ben Bernanke.

More Gun Control Nonsense
The New York Times has another silly editorial on gun control. The paper's editorial board is calling for a renewal of the assault-weapons ban, which expired in 2004.

The paper's justification? "A survey of more than 130 local police chiefs and officials found 37 percent reporting an increase in assault weapons in street crime," along with other evidence indicating an increased criminal use of assault weapons.

Notice the implication: If the Congress reenacts the assault-weapons ban, those violent criminals will obey the law.

Now, if that's not silly, what is? What the Times is suggesting is that if Congress makes it illegal to own an assault weapon, the violent criminal will say to himself: "Oh my gosh, it's now illegal to own an assault weapon. I now need to figure out how I am going to commit my robbery or murder without violating the new gun-control law."

That's ridiculous. If a would-be murderer or robber doesn't give a hoot for laws against murder or robbery, why in the world would he give a hoot about a law against owning a gun?

Keeping Precious Metals Offshore
An increasing number of Americans are concerned enough about the threat of precious metals confiscation to want to store gold or silver overseas. But laws in effect in 21 states may stand in their way.

I learned about these laws last year when one of my subscribers in Arizona called.

He wanted to buy gold from a foreign dealer for storage offshore, but the dealer refused to sell to him. The reason: the Arizona Model Commodities Act. After some research, I learned that 21 states have enacted the MCA or some variation of it: Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.

I looked into the Nevada law, which a lawyer in that state told me was typical of MCAs in other states. Basically, residents of Nevada can purchase "commodities" only under circumstances which effectively exclude having precious metals delivered to a non-U.S. storage facility.

The MCA came into existence in the 1980s, after a series of commodities scams in the 1970s.

Rand Paul vs. Trey Grayson, Conflict of Interest Battle
Sure, Kentuckians elected Grayson to do this job, but I'm not sure they elected him to oversee his own election. This is the political equivalent of allowing Coach John Calipari to referee Kentucky Wildcat basketball games. Also, it’s difficult for me to swallow the “self-serving” charge. Les Fugate is trying to deflect a charge that could much more easily be made against Trey Grayson rather than Rand Paul.

Having Grayson oversee the election could also be compared to the Democrats health reform proposal. They claim there will be competition between the government and the private sector. Fair competition is not possible when one entity controls the game.

When one side has the ability to "cheat", whether they do so or not, the final results will always be tainted. If Grayson can't see this as a legitimate conflict of interest then he isn’t smart enough to be the next Senator from Kentucky.

Peter Schiff's Senate campaign Money Bomb on Jan. 17
The Senate campaign for Peter Schiff held a Money Bomb event on Sunday in hope to gain financial momentum in the Republican primaries. Schiff's campaign was able to raise campaign funds from thousands of supporters. Ever since Republican Congressman Ron Paul's grassroots campaign held a Money Bomb event that brought him millions of dollars in one day, many have tried to replicate that success and so far they have been successful.

On Sunday, Peter Schiff's Senate campaign held a Money Bomb for his bid for the Connecticut Senate seat and he was able to garner funds with the help of thousands of supporters across the United States.

"The following is an advanced explanation regarding the language and true intent of Section 2 of the 14th amendment, as explained by L. B. Bork: ... Simply put, this formula [amendment] is creating a new body politic. The state citizens that are members of the several States, under the original constitutional system, need to be tricked or conned into participating [in the new Federal System as US citizens].

On the Duty of Civil Disobedience
The authority of government, even such as I am willing to submit to – for I will cheerfully obey those who know and can do better than I, and in many things even those who neither know nor can do so well – is still an impure one: to be strictly just, it must have the sanction and consent of the governed. It can have no pure right over my person and property but what I concede to it. The progress from an absolute to a limited monarchy, from a limited monarchy to a democracy, is a progress toward a true respect for the individual. Even the Chinese philosopher was wise enough to regard the individual as the basis of the empire. Is a democracy, such as we know it, the last improvement possible in government? Is it not possible to take a step further towards recognizing and organizing the rights of man? There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly. I please myself with imagining a State at last which can afford to be just to all men, and to treat the individual with respect as a neighbor; which even would not think it inconsistent with its own repose if a few were to live aloof from it, not meddling with it, nor embraced by it, who fulfilled all the duties of neighbors and fellow men. A State which bore this kind of fruit, and suffered it to drop off as fast as it ripened, would prepare the way for a still more perfect and glorious State, which I have also imagined, but not yet anywhere seen.

Why the Fed Likes Independence
Last week it was revealed that when Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner was Chairman of the New York Federal Reserve, he urged AIG officials not to disclose to the Securities Exchange Commission relevant details of agreements with banks to bail out Goldman Sachs. Apparently he felt at the time that regulators and the public would be angry that taxpayer money was used to fully compensate bankers who made some horrifically bad investment decisions. These banks should have suffered the consequences of the huge risks they were taking. After all, they kept plenty of rewards when times were good. Instead, the Fed found a way to socialize these major losses so these banks could survive and continue making more bad decisions, at the expense of the American people and the value of the dollar.

Cuba Is Obama's End of the Road
American liberals have long extolled Cuba as a model of their economic philosophy, which entails government control of economic activity, socialized health care, government-provided education, and equalization of wealth. While Cubans correctly call this socialism, to avoid the stigma associated with that word American liberals have long called it "progressivism."

Opposed to the socialist/progressive economic philosophy is that of economic liberty, which libertarians favor. It holds that there should be a complete separation of economy and the state, just as we have a separation of church and state. That would mean the right of people to freely engage in any economic activity, the right to freely enter into trades with people all over the world, the right to accumulate unlimited amounts of wealth, and the right to decide what to do with one's own money -- all without the permission, control, regulation, or interference of the government.

Dear Friend of Liberty,

Believe it or not, it is election time again. The Texas Republican Primary is only seven short weeks away and already both parties have turned their attack dogs loose on me . . . doing everything they can to make sure I am defeated.

Never mind all the good I have been able to accomplish for freedom and the American taxpayer in Congress, the enemies of freedom and the elites in Washington want me gone.

It is my desire to return to Congress for another term and have filed for re-election. I am hopeful that I can win, but I urgently need your help.

Seven candidates have filed to run against me. These candidates include three Republicans in my own primary on March 2, and they will stop at nothing to tear down and destroy all we have worked for.

Please read some of the quotes my opponents have been throwing at me:

Campaign for Liberty Joins 'End US Wars' Coalition!
* Campaign for Liberty has signed on in support for this coalition to End US Wars! Now we need YAL to sign on too!*

End Us Wars Homepage: http://www.enduswars.org/

Our Purpose

We call for active, non-violent non-cooperation with US war policy. As we vigorously oppose a military escalation in Afghanistan, we encourage mass political mobilization and high-profile antiwar political actions across the country. As America continues to commit war crimes for the profit of the few and at the expense of the many, we engage and energize our fellow citizens to become disablers of war party mentality. We reject defeatist thinking and futile rationales by promoting effective war protest. We break cycles of hopelessness by engaging in immediate and direct actions, consistent with our commitment to non-violence. We believe our actions will produce the best methods for securing peace in our country and the world, and we direct our allegiance to that end.

Going Vogue: Palin To Bilk $100k From Tea Party Movement For One Speech
There is a "National Tea Party Convention" set to be held in Nashville, Tennessee from February 4th-6th 2010. The list of sponsors of this event, organized by Tea Party Nation, is a bunch of groups that I would think might be a little more logical and reasoning than they are, since most are of a conservative nature.

Logic and reason have been thrown out the window in this country though and it's not just coming from the left and their adulation of the "charismatic and dynamic" Barack Obama that blinded everyone's eyes to his actual stances on issues. Now on the right logic and reason have been discarded and they are blinded by a few super-personalities that dress the right way, say clever things and speak in certain tones. Underneath it all though is nothing more than trying to emotionally drive people to give them money and it's not about the movements they say they are supporting.

Enter one Sarah Palin.

Palin, an attractive woman who oozes charisma that makes people want to like her and support her, has taken to the Tea Party movement like a duck to water. Jumping on the backs of a grassroots anger coming from the hard working producers of this country she has manipulated them in ways I didn't think possible. Since her choosing as vice-presidential candidate to John McCain she has been lauded as the second coming of Reagan by those on the right.

In the end though Palin has basically gained support the same way that Barack Obama did, through celebrity, image and glossiness. Yet when you dig down into Sarah Palin you find a dark side. It's the vogue more than the rogue.

It has now been reported by Palin supporter and conservative Dan Riehl that Palin will be charging the Tea Party Convention $100k for her Saturday Night Keynote address. This just appalls me and should raise red flags to anyone who thinks she is supporting the tea party movement simply because of their values and principles.

Martial Law vs. Christian Responsibility
The first thing I would like to point out to people like Dr. Tuberville, who think Christians should obey government officials no matter what because they are "the higher powers," is that there is another, yet higher power to which even such officials are beholden: the Constitution of the United States.

This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land. Article VI, Section 1.

It is from the Constitution that our elected officials, both federal and state, derive their office and legitimate powers. Their powers are delegated, not inherent; concrete, not elastic, and, as clearly set forth by the 9th and 10th Amendments, they are limited to the specific areas of authority that the Constitution either grants to the Union or denies to the states. Further, our elected officials are "bound by oath or affirmation" to support the Constitution and its provisions, including the limitations placed upon their own powers:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution... (Article VI, Section 3).

Thus, in taking up the powers and responsibilities of political office, our elected officials are also agreeing to place themselves under the law. This is one of the foundational ideas of the American political system: the concept that everyone is under law and equal in its eyes. For this reason, if government officials violate the Constitution, their actions are illegal and void of authority, and they are no better than common criminals. It is absolutely critical that Christians understand this when they contemplate their relationship to the government. Our elected officials are not the source of their own power; rather, they are representatives who have been entrusted with the authority of the American people as defined in the United States Constitution. If they violate that trust, they are as much criminals as the guy who robs your local 7-11 store; they just dress better, make other people use the guns, and almost never go to jail.

Yemen Agrees with Ron Paul (Big "Surprise")
YEMEN WARNS U.S. INTERVENTION COULD STRENGTHEN AL-QAEDA

In its strongest language yet, Yemen's government declared Thursday that there are limits to its military cooperation with the United States, warning that any direct U.S. action in this impoverished Middle East nation could bolster the popularity of Islamic militants. "If there is direct intervention by the United States, it will strengthen al-Qaeda," warned Rashad al-Alimi, Yemen's deputy prime minister for security and defense. "We cannot accept any foreign troops on Yemeni territory."

The statement underscored the rising concern among Yemen's leadership of a domestic backlash that could politically weaken the government and foment more instability. In recent days, top Yemeni officials have publicly downplayed their growing ties to Washington, fearing they will be perceived by their opponents as weak and beholden to the United States.

Of course, this only applies to Yemen—not Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia...

Yemen and the War of the Worlds
The Obama Administration needs to step back from what it is doing. It must first recognize that Yemen is not a threat to the United States, must realize that it will not fix the country through the addition of American soldiers, and that the best thing to do when dealing with a complex and poorly understood situation is to leave it alone. Regarding airport and airline security, Washington must fix the failure to communicate and other disconnects in the system without throwing out the baby with the bath water, repairing what must be repaired and retaining what works. It must establish security standards that apply to everyone without appearing to accuse entire nations of being prone to terrorism. If it does all that, the ability of Americans and others to travel safely will be improved and the United States will avoid yet another tragic involvement in a faraway land where there is no vital national interest at stake.

Bipartisan Washington Dodges the Real Question About Terrorism
David, the Obama administration will be no more honest in answering the question, "why do they hate us," than the Bush Administration was. The question is forbidden in both major parties because of the trouble that an honest answer would undoubtedly cause in certain quarters.

Meanwhile, I've been getting a stream of pompous emails (prime example here) from gloating "conservatives" who insist that the country, fed up with Obama, is now turning back to - them! So please send them more money!

In that regard, I turn to a truth as old as the ages, from the late political philosopher (and my teacher) Eric Voegelin: "Socrates understood (what modern political reformers and revolutionaries seem unable to understand) that a reform cannot be achieved by a well-intentioned leader who recruits his followers from the very people whose moral confusion is the cause of the disorder."

Read it and weep, Beltway "Conservative" Trough-dwellers! As long as Obama's opposition is today's GOP, he has nothing to worry about. That cadaver will never be resuscitated until a brave Republican (perhaps a medical doctor? Perhaps from Texas?) will honestly answer the question, "Why was Bush so unpopular with voters in 2006 and 2008?" The mealy mush-mouths we've heard so far will never answer the forbidden questions, or even admit that they exist.

Geithner and the Financial Fail-Out
We don't need any further cause for opening up the Federal Reserve's books and subjecting it to a complete and thorough audit. As a matter of fact, if I have to endure a body scan to get on an airplane, the Fed needs the equivalent of a full cavity search.

To be clear, the New York arm of the Federal Reserve gave AIG billions in taxpayer cash to pay to Goldman Sachs and select others by buying their bad securitized mortgages for full price (while others took huge losses on such swaps), as opposed to the severly discounted value of those securities at the time. And they told AIG to hide the details from public disclosure.

Basically, Geithner made sure his friends at Goldman, Bank of America, etc got off like bandits--and incurred absolutely no losses--when everyone else was hemorrhaging money. And he was concerned that this disclosure might be "controversial." You think?

All You Need To Know About Healthcare Reform
Wrote Ludwig von Mises in Socialism (1922):

To the intellectual champions of social insurance, and to the politicians and statesmen who enacted it, illness and health appeared as two conditions of the human body sharply separated from each other and always recognizable without difficulty or doubt. Any doctor could diagnose the characteristics of 'health.' 'Illness' was a bodily phenomenon which showed itself independently of human will, and was not susceptible to influence by will. There were people who for some reason or other simulated illness, but a doctor could expose the pretense. Only the healthy person was fully efficient. The efficiency of the sick person was lowered according to the gravity and nature of his illness, and the doctor was able, by means of objectively ascertainable physiological tests, to indicate the degree of the reduction of efficiency.

Now every statement in this theory is false. There is no clearly defined frontier between health and illness. Being ill is not a phenomenon independent of conscious will and of psychic forces working in the subconscious. A man's efficiency is not merely the result of his physical condition; it depends largely on his mind and will. Thus the whole idea of being able to separate, by medical examination, the unfit from the fit and from the malingerers, and those able to work from those unable to work, proves to be untenable. Those who believed that accident and medical insurance could be based on completely effective means of ascertaining illnesses and injuries and their consequences were very much mistaken. The destructionist aspect of accident and health insurance lies above all in the fact that such institutions promote accidents and illness, hinder recovery, and very often create, or at any rate intensify and lengthen, the functional disorders which follow illness or accident.

Feeling healthy is quite different from being healthy in the medical sense, and a man's ability to work is largely independent of the physiologically ascertainable and measurable performances of his individual organs. The man who does not want to be healthy is not merely a malingerer. He is a sick person. If the will to be well and efficient is weakened, illness and inability to work is caused. By weakening or completely destroying the will to be well and able to work, social insurance creates illness and inability to work; it produces the habit of complaining – which is in itself a neurosis – and neuroses of other kinds. In short, it is an institution which tends to encourage disease, not to say accidents, and to intensify considerably the physical and psychic results of accidents and illnesses. As a social institution it makes a people sick bodily and mentally or at least helps to multiply, lengthen, and intensify disease.

Obamacare Will Cost the Democrats Politically
Jane Hamsher lists 20 Democrats who are most vulnerable to losing their seats over their health care vote. The threat comes not just from conservative opposition to Obamacare, but from independents and liberals who for some reason resent Obama's plan to force them to patronize the insurancy industry, and who don't want "Aetna to use the IRS as their collection agency."

Obama said he would bring this country together. Instead, he has managed to alienate the entire conservative movement while splitting the left, more and more of whom see the president as a front for corporate interests, Wall Street and the military-industrial complex. Somehow I don't think uniting the public against the government is what he had in mind, but that would sure be a great achievement, worthy of a second Nobel.

Guns or Health Care?
Throughout time, governments have strong tendencies to simultaneously splurge on both domestic spending and the more sinister business of warfare. This is referred to as the "guns versus butter" economic model. "Butter" is synonymous with domestic spending, while "guns" is synonymous with military spending. As with any economic goods or services, there is always scarcity of labor, machines, raw materials, land, et cetera. Individuals find it very easy to understand that if you want to spend 100% of one's resources on "butter," no "guns" can be purchased or vice versa; there is always a trade-off. Steel can be formed into either a refrigerator or a tank; it can not be used for both.

Now, by their very nature, GOVERNMENTS HAVE NOTHING; they must tax, expropriate and leech from either its citizens or tributaries in order to perform any action whatsoever. However, governments have locked onto two monopolies that are the key to their powers.

For Liberty Movie to air on Wisconsin PBS, State Wide!
Great News from Chris Rye, Director of For Liberty, as reported on the Ron Paul Forums:

In our home state of Wisconsin, our PBS produces an original show called "Director's Cut" which features WI filmmakers - the show is wildly popular and difficult to get on.

Very happy to report our film has been accepted by the show, and will feature in-studio interview clips of Corey and I intercut with film clips and discussion. Then the full film will air twice state-wide. The host of the show is a young guy who's parents were RP supporters so there should be kind and lively discussion. A lot of people here in Wisconsin are going to see the film.

The show has great ratings. We're going to Madison to shoot the interview early January. Pretty exciting news!

We're going for national PBS next, also The Documentary Channel, IFC, etc.

TV Weathermen – Mainly Meteorologists – Think Climate Change A Scam
As we awake to national news and preempted programs held hostage to the weather, it’s worth noting one finding that barely half of TV weatherman hold a college degree in meteorology or another atmospheric science.

There's a difference between accredited meteorologists and those schooled in the science of climatology. TV weatherman are largely meteorologists. (ABC's Sam Champion is not even that. He's got a B.A. in broadcast news from Eastern Kentucky University.)

No wonder Americans are skeptical. When asked whom they trusted for information about global warming, 66 percent of the respondents named television weather reporters.

Keynesianism Delivers a Decade of Zero
This past week we celebrated the end of what most people agree was a decade best forgotten. New York Times columnist and leading Keynesian economist Paul Krugman called it the Big Zero in a recent column. He wrote that "there was a whole lot of nothing going on in measures of economic progress or success" which is true. However, Krugman continues to misleadingly blame the free market and supposed lack of regulation for the economic chaos. It was encouraging that he admitted that blowing economic bubbles is a mistake, especially considering he himself advocated creating a housing bubble as a way to alleviate the hangover from the dotcom bust. But we can no longer afford to give prominent economists like Krugman a pass when they completely ignore the burden of taxation, monetary policy, and excessive regulation. Afterall, Krugman is still scratching his head as to why "no" economists saw the housing bust coming. How in the world did they miss it? Actually many economists saw it coming a mile away

Ron Paul slams Cheney: US 'doing exactly what bin Laden planned'
House Rep. Ron Paul had some harsh words for his fellow Republican, former Vice President Dick Cheney, on CNN Monday night.

Responding to Cheney's comments last week that "we are at war and when President Obama pretends we aren't, it makes us less safe," the noted Texas libertarian made it clear he wasn't interested in hearing from the former VP.

"I think he had his eight years and he's caused a lot of trouble for our country, and he perpetuated a war in Iraq that was unnecessary and wrong-headed. I would say it would be best he not be so critical right now," Paul told CNN's Larry King.

Paul went on to question the fundamental basis for the war on terror, now re-dubbed the war on al-Qaeda by the Obama administration.

A Year Into Obama's Reign, Ron Paul's Ideas Now Making Sense
For three decades, Texas congressman and former presidential candidate Ron Paul's extreme brand of libertarian economics consigned him to the far fringes even among conservatives. Not a few times, his views put him on the losing end of 434-1 votes on Capitol Hill.

No longer. With the economy still struggling and political divisions deepening, Paul's ideas not only are gaining a wider audience but also are helping to shape a potentially historic battle over economic policy -- a struggle that will affect everything including jobs, growth and the nation's place in the global economy.

Already, Paul's long-derided proposal to give Congress supervisory power over the traditionally independent Federal Reserve appears to be on its way to becoming law.

His warnings on deficits and inflation are now Republican mantras.

Trust not in Republicans
It is pure madness to imagine that Republicans, who are the co-architects of the present financial system, are capable of successfully reforming it. Indeed, they have shown absolutely no signs of being willing to do anything but defend it. And it is highly unlikely that the system can be reformed, anyhow. It will almost surely have to be replaced in much the same way that an old building needs to be torn down before a new one can be erected. The only significant question facing the American people is if the present system is demolished in a prudent and controlled manner, as Ron Paul has suggested, or if it is artificially propped up until it finally collapses under the weight of its structural flaws.

America appears to be rapidly approaching a post-partisan crisis that will pit Wall Street, the government bureaucracies and the political elite of both the Republican and the Democratic parties against a large majority of Americans that includes everyone from the Kossacks of the left to the Mises Institute on the right. The Republican Party is not the answer. It cannot be, because it is a significant part of the problem.

A Winter Soldier's Quest for Congress
Ex-Marine, Iraq vet, and antiwar activist Adam Kokesh is finally ready to fight The Man - from inside the system. But as he makes the rounds through the New Mexico congressional district he hopes to one day represent, he's finding out fast that people are more apathetic about U.S. interventions abroad than ever before.

"Nobody cares about the war. It's predictable, but it's sad," said Kokesh in a recent interview with Antiwar.com. "We have 300,000 troops serving in harm's way, but I hardly get asked questions about that. I hardly get any questions about foreign policy."

"I think a lot of people are realizing that the system we have right now stinks, and it's motivating a lot of people to get involved. Adam is trying to bring the Republican Party back to its more traditional stance," said Ron Paul spokesman and Kokesh supporter Jesse Benton, who said Kokesh's "real-world credentials" as a combat Marine, his "genuineness," and above all, his lack of ego have allowed him to make early inroads with voters.

A self-described libertarian Republican who actively supported Republican outsider Ron Paul for the GOP nomination, Kokesh not only warned against the hawkishness of McCain, but he actively campaigned against Obama's plans for Afghanistan during the campaign, too. While he hates to say "I told you so," he'll say it anyway.

Why Ron Paul cannot save America
But it occurred to me at the Freedom Summit the next day, where I watched him deliver another good speech, that Ron Paul ca't save America. Even had he been elected, Paul would have faced a Congress packed with socialists (who couldn't give two hoots for what's in the Constitution), barbarian federal bureaucracies with no interest in Paul's plans for them (their demolition) and an American electorate that, coming from one statist perspective or another, cares little for freedom and the ideas employed by the founding fathers.

That's not to say he hasn't helped. Libertarian ideas are on the rise, I believe, because of Paul.

Are Conservatives Reacting to a Democratic War President Like It's 1999?
When conservatives used to bash Bill Clinton, their arguments usually centered on one thing -- Monica Lewinsky. But I never cared much about Clinton's relationship with Lewinsky. My greatest problem with our 42nd president was that he wasn't much different from the 41st or 43rd. Under Clinton, the size of government grew, our worsening illegal immigration problem was ignored, the U.S. needlessly punished the citizens of Iraq with sanctions and bombings, and we foolishly intervened militarily in places like Kosovo, Somalia, and Haiti. Like his predecessor and his successor, Clinton simply maintained and expanded the already-established American empire he inherited.

And yet in 2000, conservative reaction to the Clinton administration had the Right singing a much different tune on foreign policy.

Consider the language then-candidate George W. Bush thought necessary to appeal to his GOP base and voters-at-large during the 2000 presidential campaign. Attacking Clinton's military adventures, Bush said during a debate with Al Gore, "I'm not so sure the role of the United States is to go around the world and say 'This is the way it's got to be' ... I think one way for us to end up being viewed as the 'ugly American' is for us to go around the world saying 'We do it this way, so should you.'" Criticizing Clinton's military debacle in Somalia, Bush said, "I don't think our troops ought to be used for what's called nation building." When asked how people around the world should view the U.S., Bush responded, "It really depends upon how our nation conducts its foreign policy. If we're an arrogant nation, they'll resent us. If we're a humble nation, they'll respect us."

And Bush wasn't alone. Consider the words of conservative talk host Sean Hannity toward Clinton's foreign policy.

An American World of War
Although our country delivers war regularly to distant lands in the name of our "safety," we don't really consider ourselves at war (despite the endless talk of "supporting our troops"), and the money that has simply poured into Pentagon coffers, and then into weaponry and conflicts is, with rare exceptions, never linked to economic distress in this country. And yet, if we are no nation of warriors, from the point of view of the rest of the world we are certainly the planet's foremost war-makers. If money talks, then war may be what we care most about as a society and fund above all else, with the least possible discussion or debate.

Steve Forbes on Ron Paul
Paul has aroused the fear and ire of the Federal Reserve with his bill calling for the Government Accountability Office to audit the Fed. This tenacious Congressman makes the point that independence should not be confused with a lack of accountability. One doesn't have to agree with Paul's ultimate conclusion that the Fed should be done away with to realize that this powerful institution is a kingdom unto itself. The Fed can bring about depressions (many historians agree with Milton Friedman's belief that the Fed was the chief cause of the Great Depression), horrific periods of inflation, as it caused in the 1970s, as well as the current economic crisis, which the Fed fueled with its excessive easing of monetary policy several years ago. Without the excess liquidity, the housing bubble could never have happened. Yet Congress exercises no oversight of the Fed. In fact, no one outside the Fed has the right to examine to whom it lends money or the agreements it makes with other central banks around the world.

Paul makes the argument that we don't need the Fed at all, that particularly in this high-tech era we can allow--and efficiently function with--competing currencies. Strange? The U.S. did exactly that for most of its existence, up until the Fed was created in 1913. Needless to say, that part of Paul's thesis is highly controversial. But what shouldn't be controversial is his belief that gold should be the ultimate anchor for money.

Why Did We Lose Our Rights if the Government Isn't Even Keeping Us Safe?
Indeed, while the 9-11 Commission made numerous recommendations on how to prevent future terrorist attacks -- many of them simple and inexpensive to implement -- the Bush administration failed to do so (and see this and this). Moreover, the Bush administration and its allies actively blocked efforts to do so.

The Department of Homeland Security, instead of protecting vulnerable targets and concentrating on keeping actual bad guys out of our country, instead randomly made up lists which included kangaroo centers, petting zoos and ice cream parlors as high-priority terrorist threats. And the Bush administration refused to fill important positions at DHS so that our security could be protected.

In areas such as airport security, things haven't improved since Obama has taken office.

Ben Franklin said:

Those who would trade safety for freedom deserve neither.

As shown above, the government has not really done much to increase our safety. And see this.

But we have lost our freedom.

Neither Left Nor Right
I have always taken it as a good thing that libertarians are detested by both the left and the right. To me it is proof positive that we libertarians are in the right. After all, both the left and the right are fundamentally the same – authoritarian statists who wish to use the force of government to make society in their own images and to compel others to live in ways that they approve of. And let’s be honest, both the left and the right do truly hate us and whatever we may ostensibly have in common with either – say free markets with the right and human rights with the left (of course neither really supports either except in qualified and conditional ways) – what they find detestable about us involves fundamental differences which can never be overcome as long as they remain "left" and "right," as long as they remain wedded to that dialectic.

Ron Paul - Top #1 Conservative for 2009
Two years ago, many Republicans couldn't stand him. The longtime congressman from Texas made his quixotic presidential campaign all about the Constitution and the Federal Reserve, seemingly to the exclusion of other issues, and for his trouble he was excluded from some of the debates. Reporters, hungry for soundbites and attack lines, and interested more in who would win the nomination than what the candidates thought, found him tiresome - at the very first GOP debate in 2007, Chris Matthews muttered "Oh, God" when Paul started talking about "original intent." He raised $35 million and won 1.2 million primary and caucus votes, but when 2008 ended, his slogan sounded extreme. The "Ron Paul Revolution"? What did that word have to do with modern American politics?

But at the close of 2009, Paul seems less like an outsider and more like a pioneer. For the first time in his congressional career, he got every Republican colleague on board with a piece of legislation: HR 1207, an attempt to "audit" the Federal Reserve's activity. His rhetoric and some of his imagery (like Revolutionary War re-enactment) have been copied wholesale by the Tea Party movement. The beliefs held by Paul that were once considered out of the mainstream - a collapsing dollar, obsession with the Fed, an encroaching North American Union, gold as the only safe investment - are now de regueur for Republican candidates. What presidential loser has had more of an impact on the party that rejected him?

Ben Stein Says Ron Paul Uses "Anti-Semitic Arguments"
Rep. Paul, a Republican from Texas, has argued for removing U.S. soldiers from the Middle East because the American presence there is increasingly seen by many Muslims as a foreign occupation force. Responding to Rep. Paul's argument that Americans should mind their own business and not become the policeman of the world, Stein argued: "No, we're not occupiers. That's the same anti-Semitic argument we've heard over and over again. That's the same anti-Semitic argument we've heard over and over again."

Rep. Paul responded by saying, "That is a vicious attack," and Stein defended his statement by saying, "Look, that is not a vicious attack."

The argument began when Dr. Paul noted that American foreign policy experts make bombing decisions while "never asking the question: What is the motive?" He went on to explain that the most recent would-be airline hijacker "said why he did it. He said because we bombed Yemen two weeks ago. That was his motive." Dr. Paul then went on to explain that the United States is falling into the interventionist trap:

A Ron Paul Moment
A few days ago, I was on Larry King Live on CNN. the topic was terrorism and specifically the Christmas Day aerial bombing effort by a self-described Al Qaeda agent of an airliner near Detroit.

One of the other guests was Rep. Ron Paul of Texas. He said, at least as I understood it -- and I could be mistaken -- that the real fault for this terror attack lies with the United States for provoking al Qaeda by "occupying their land" --this is a paraphrase. I expressed shock at this line of approach. Rep. Paul -- as I recall -- said again that the U.S. was causing these attacks by our being "occupiers."

I said this line was something like "the tired old anti-Semitic line." I said this because in my long experience, those who talk about the U.S. "occupying" Moslem lands soon go to criticism of the U.S. for helping Israel -- a line long associated with Rep. Paul, as I understand, and again, maybe I am misinformed -- and then to biting criticism of Israel and then to bitter comments about Jews generally.

I was about to add that I was sure that Rep. Paul was not going that far. But Rep. Paul became so upset that I could not get in a word.

So let me say right now that if Rep. Paul says he is not taking that line, and is not an anti-Semite, I believe him, good for him and I am happy to know him.

That is what I would have said if I had been allowed to talk. Happy New Year.

Ron Paul Says Agenda Behind Bombing Incident Is More War, More Attacks On Liberty
Congressman Ron Paul fears that the agenda behind the Flight 253 bombing incident is to expand the war on terror into Yemen while stripping Americans of more liberties, warning that it's time people woke up and realized that the government cannot guarantee their safety.

The Congressman highlighted how the bombing attempt followed geopolitical turmoil in Yemen in the form of attacks in the country launched by the Saudis with the endorsement of the U.S. - and how sectors of the media and politicians were now calling for Yemen to be a new front in the war on terror as a consequence of the Christmas Day incident.

Paul raised the question of how a $75 billion dollar a year intelligence gathering structure failed to stop a dangerous man who had no passport and was on a terror watch list from boarding a plane.

Paul labeled the nature of the incident, "Either awful stupidity or there must be an agenda....I am concerned what they are going to do to the American people," citing how the 9/11 hijackers were also known to the authorities, who were warned that they were only training to learn how to fly a plane and not how to land, but that nothing was ever done about it.

Paul said the people punished for the incident would not be those who failed to stop the terrorist, but the American people.

Losing the Bill of Rights
Last month, President Obama announced that Khalid Sheik Mohammed would be transferred to New York, where he would stand trial in U.S. district court for his purported role as principal architect of the 9/11 attacks. At the same time, Obama announced that other terrorist suspects would continue to be tried for terrorism in the Pentagon's military-commissions system, which was established after 9/11.

Which judicial system is chosen—the federal courts or military commissions system—has important consequences for accused terrorists. What all too many Americans fail to realize, however, is the enormity of the impact that this dual system of justice has had on the country’s constitutional order. The precedents created here will extend far beyond the war on terror.

Corporatism and Socialism in America
Principled advocacy of the free market requires an understanding of the differences between genuine free enterprise and "state capitalism." Although the Left frequently exaggerates and overemphasizes the evils of corporate America, proponents of the free market often find themselves in the awkward position of defending the status quo of state capitalism, which is in fact a common adversary of the free marketer and the anti-corporate leftist, even if the latter misdiagnoses the problem and proposes the wrong solutions.

Indeed, corporatism, implemented by the state - whether through direct handouts, corporate bailouts, eminent domain, licensing laws, antitrust regulations, or environmental edicts - inflicts great harm on the modern American economy. Although leftists often misunderstand the fundamental problem plaguing the economy, they at least recognize its symptoms.

Conservatives and many libertarians, on the other hand, frequently dismiss many ills such as poverty as fabricated by the left-liberal imagination, when in fact it does a disservice to the cause of liberty and free markets to defend the current system and ignore very real and serious problems, which are often caused by government intervention in the economy. We should recognize that state corporatism is a form of socialism, and it is nearly inevitable in a mixed economy that the introduction of more socialism will cartelize industry and consolidate wealth in the hands of the few.

Leftists usually understand how wartime provides politically connected corporations with high profits and cushy contracts. What is more often neglected is that the history of the American domestic welfare and regulatory state also corresponds closely to the rise of corporatism. It is no coincidence.
