Our country is ailing.  That is the bad news.  The good news is that the remedy is so simple and attractive: a return to the principles our Founders taught us. Respect for the Constitution, the rule of law, individual liberty, sound money, and a noninterventionist foreign policy constitute the foundation of the Campaign for Liberty“. – From the campaign’s Statement of Principles

Idea & Objectives:

Campaign for Liberty

Campaign for Liberty

The Campaign for Liberty’s mission is to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.

It is worth mentioning here that the Campaign for Liberty is the name of the actual organization carrying out this mission for liberty. This is quite interesting to me since it is the second organization’s name I come across which defines itself as a campaign. What I can deduce from this is that people are more likely to “follow” or “support” a certain organization or cause if its name entailed “campaign”, which shows virality, unity and a real goal.

Internet Freedom: A Hoax or a Reality?

Internet Freedom: A Hoax or a Reality?

Internet Freedom?

Are we really holding our "precious" freedom in our hands? Are we appreciating it as we should? Are we conscious of how our actions might negatively influence the health and sanity of our freedom? I think not!
