The Times They Are a Changin'

Here is past Wednesday's "Freedom Watch" with Judge Napolitano on FOX-News. It is mesmerizing. Who would have ever imagined a FOX-News show not only criticizing President Bush, but calling him a Socialist and a disaster for conservatism? Who could have imagined FOX-News calling the Iraq War a mistake?

Once again, we learn that Congress is clueless, the two major parties are two sides of the same coin, and in the end, we're likely headed toward nationalization and hyperinflation.

I believe that either we will see a brain- and capital-drain away from the United States (assuming that some country somewhere in the world becomes what the United States used to be: a beacon of freedom), or there will be a revolution of sorts as the younger generation (the ones who are being currently saddled with all of this debt) rise up against Keynsian economics and rediscover the blessings of liberty and the driving power of free markets, savings, and investment.

And with some 25 states mulling over reassertions of sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment, one has also to wonder if we will see a repeat of the principles of nullification, if not outright secession. The Federal government has become the very Big Government the founders and our ancestors fought a revolution against, and I believe it is imperative that we dust-off the long-forgotten Constitutional checks and balances against Leviathan unless we want to eventually see violence in the streets.

One thing is sure: the house of cards is teetering, and something is going to have to give. And let's pray that freedom wins and not fascism.
