Limiting Government Through the Culture War

The speeches at FreePAC in Dallas July 26 will have a lasting impact on the movement for limited government. Each was inspirational and important, but one stands out among the others for the insight that political victories are a result of cultural change. The only way to limit government is with a limiting culture.You can watch the rest of the amazing FreePAC speeches from the links below:

Pennsylvania Passes School Choice Legislation

After being on the ground and fighting for education reform for nearly 2 years, our FreedomWorks field team in Pennsylvania received some great news on School Choice as of late Saturday evening, June 30th, when HB761 passed both chambers right before the midnight budget deadline.  Governor Tom Corbett signed the bill into law that same night along with an on-time budget.  A school choice voucher program was one of the Governor's top priorities during his campaign in 2010 and we are thrilled to see movement in the right direction.

Montana: Battle Ground 2013

We made 2011 the “year of school choice” and 2012 is shaping up to be no different, but what about 2013?  Many states have finished up their legislative sessions and are gearing up for the 2013 session with education reform looking to take center stage.  One state in particular is shaping up to be ground zero for education reform and that is Montana. According to a recent article in the Flathead Beacon:

Hostile Takeover

FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe has a terrific new book, "Hostile Takeover". Kibbe describes how the explosion of information choices available to Americans has already changed politics and will continue to do so.  Though not organized this way, there are three broad themes in the book, leading to one inescapable conclusion:Top-down journalism is a dying paradigmTop-down, Keynesian economics is a tool of oppressionTop-down politics is no way to run a free countryThe inescapable conclusion: while there is a lot of work ahead of the advocates for individual freedom and limited government, the decentralization of information has the wind at our backs.

NH School Choice Bills Provide Prime Example for PA

As a vote on school choice reform looms closer in Pennsylvania, a potential school choice victory in New Hampshire is moving forward.  Two bills promising to provide tax credits to businesses that donate to nonprofit scholarships have been passed by both houses of the legislature.  Despite the governor’s "real concerns" about the proposed legislation, both bills have veto-proof majority support.  While opponents argue that these bills will take money ou

Pennsylvania Leadership Needs a Lesson in Courage

As a libertarian, I am often critical of Republicans whose policies seem to mirror the Democrats and not the limited government ideals that built the GOP.  Today, more than ever, I find myself an even bigger critic of the Republican Party.   As intriguing as it may seem to hear a lawmaker tout his “Conservative” record, I can no longer take them seriously; knowing what I have seen as I cross the country working with them.  Nothing can serve as a better example to this then the issue of education reform.
