It's a historic day for private property rights in New Mexico, but more work is ahead to restore the Fifth Amendment

As the second hand ticked closer to noon, the statutory deadline to take action on measures passed by the New Mexico Legislature, Gov. Susana Martinez signed a comprehensive bill to protect the property of innocent individuals by ending civil asset forfeiture in the Land of Enchantment.

Thank You, Governor Martinez!

A few hours ago, Governor Susana Martinez of New Mexico signed groundbreaking legislation to strengthen the protection of individual rights in her state.

New Mexico's governor eerily silent on civil asset forfeiture reform bill

Last weekend, in the final hours of its session for the year, the New Mexico Legislature unanimously passed a sweeping bill, HB 560, that effectively bans the practice of civil asset forfeiture, an egregious tool used by law enforcement in many instances to seize assets from innocent people without ever charging them with -- let alone convicting them of -- a crime.

A Romney/Walker/Daniels/Christie/Jindal/McDonnell/Martinez Ticket May Be The Path To Victory

As we move inexorably closer to the date of the most important presidential election of the 21st century, small government, free market devotees find themselves caught between the proverbial rock and a hard place. Absent a governing record that inspires, what can Mitt Romney do to cement some support from the base beyond being the less unpalatable of the two main choices?Bill Kristol has an idea.
