FreedomWorks NC Mobilizes on Local Zoning Issue

HENDERSON, N.C. Monday night December 19, at the American Legion Hall in Henderson, a group of concerned landowners and others, including two Vance County commissioners, met to hear a property rights lecture and presentation by Mr. Chad Adams of The John Locke Foundation. Mr. Adams expressed concern that the Vance County Commission has violated the law by refusing to release public documents about proposed county-wide zoning.

Opposition to zoning builds

BY MATTHEW E. MILLIKEN

A Lee County commissioner warned a Henderson audience Monday evening that zoning represents a serious infringement upon property rights and urged them to consider case by case covenants with developers and land owners as an alternative. Perhaps 40 Vance residents turned out to the American Legion hall in downtown Henderson to hear Chad Adams, a Lee official who also heads the Center for Local Innovation at the John Locke Foundation. Adams cited the Lockean belief that property rights equal freedom and said that zoning, which governs land use, can erode such rights.

Good Governance

This piece was originally published in the Washington Times on November 23, 2005. Have you noticed Congress and administrations periodically claim they will save a great deal in some government program by ending "waste, fraud, and abuse," and then provide a "number" representing the obtainable savings?

Burdens of Regulatory Fat

This piece originally ran in the Washington Times on November 14, 2005 After Hurricane Katrina, very few members of Congress have stepped forward with a meaningful plan for paying what's already an astronomical tab, other than driving America deeper into the red. While the hurricane relief debt steadily climbs, only a few members have dared suggest this spending be offset by reducing ever so slightly some of the taxpayer billions spent on pork-barrel special interest programs.

Bad advisers

BY Richard W. Rahn

Do you think your tax money should be given to international bureaucrats who give destructive advice to American policymakers? Well, that is what is happening -- and worse yet, some unthinking souls in the news media and Congress have treated some of these detrimental recommendations with undeserved deference.

Pork Barrel Spending and Over Regulation, the Other White Meat

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, very few members have stepped forward with a meaningful plan for paying what's already an astronomical tab, other than driving the nation deeper into the red. While the hurricane relief debt steadily climbs, only a few members of Congress have dared to suggest that they offset this spending by reducing ever so slightly some of the billions in taxpayer dollars spent on pork-barrel special interest programs.

Price-gouging?

Originally published September 29, 2005 in The Washington Times If you bought a home 10 years ago for $100,000 and just sold it for $300,000, have you engaged in price gouging? Most people would say "no," provided there were willing buyers and sellers of both sides of the transaction merely responding to the market at the time.

RSC proposed cuts incite friction among House GOP

BY Patrick O'Connor

House conservatives called for broad spending cuts yesterday to offset emergency funding in response to Hurricane Katrina, a move that triggered heightened friction between leadership officials and the right wing of the GOP conference. The tensions illustrate a growing divide within the party about how to handle hurricane relief as another storm heads for the battered Gulf Coast region.
