An Introduction to Virginia 2nd Amendment “Sanctuaries”

An Introduction to Virginia 2nd Amendment “Sanctuaries”

Over 90 percent of Virginia’s counties have claimed “2nd Amendment Sanctuary” status since the Nov. 5 election that gave Democrats control of Richmond for the first time in decades. But their rhetoric doesn’t match reality. The resolutions are symbolic and have no legal force. The wave of sanctuary resolutions comes in response to state lawmakers, who along with Gov. Ralph Northam, have promised Virginians a number of strict gun control measures in the 2020 legislative session. A vast majority of the state’s 95 counties have adopted some type of sanctuary language. This has prompted Rep. A....

Path to Liberty: Nullify Them into Oblivion

The following is based on a speech given to the LP Mises Caucus “Take Human Action Bash” in New Orleans on June 30, 2018 In 1996, voters in California passed Prop 215, the “compassionate use act,” to legalize marijuana for limited medical purposes.  In the run up to the vote, three presidents came out to California to explain that voters couldn’t do this. Why not?  According to their messaging, the supremacy clause of the constitution says that federal law always wins.  And marijuana is illegal under federal law. Well, that marketing campaign didn’t work out too well for them. When Prop 215...

Trump’s Syria Airstrikes are Unconstitutional

The Constitution imposes rules about how the United States is to enter a war, and the Trump administration has violated those rules in Syria. THE PRESIDENT AND WAGING WAR Under the Constitution, the Founders intentionally prohibited the Executive branch from having the power to unilaterally determine whether or not the country would engage in war. Few were more adamant about this than James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution,” who wrote: “The constitution supposes, what the history of all governments demonstrates, that the executive is the branch of power most interested in war, and...

A Bad Foundation will Lead to More Spending and More Militarism

A $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill. More military spending than any time in history. How did things get to this point? Even some of the most loyal supporters of President Trump have expressed both frustration and dismay that he signed an omnibus spending bill larger than all but one signed by former President Obama. Angry opposition has come from the likes of Laura Ingraham, Amy Kremer, and Ann Coulter. But not everyone is upset. Matt House, communications director for Sen. Chuck Schumer, said on Twitter that he’s “tired of all the winning.” Schumer himself was excited about all that was...

AZ Committee Passes Bill to Treat Gold and Silver as Money, Remove Capital Gains Taxes

PHOENIX, Ariz. (Mar. 8, 2017) – Today, an Arizona Senate Committee passed a bill that would eliminate state capital gains taxes on gold and silver specie, and encourage its use as currency. Final approval of the legislation would help undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money. Former US Rep. Ron Paul testified today in the Senate Finance Committee in support of House Bill 2014 (HB2014). The legislation, which previously passed the state House by a 35-24 vote, would eliminate state capital gains taxes on income “derived from the exchange of one kind of legal tender for another kind of...
