The Freeman's Burden:

To defend the principles of human liberty; to educate; to be vigilant against the ever expanding power of the state.

Spreading the fires of freedom

Over the weekend, I attended an all day class on the Constitution that was being taught by Michael Badnarik, the 2004 Libertarian Party presidential candidate. Michael generously slashed the normal price for his class for the sake of including us poor college students. In return we agreed to, as he put it, "spread the fires on liberty one heart at a time." To that end, I agreed to add a link to a sample chapter from his recent best selling book, "Good to be King." The chapter, which explains brilliantly the difference between a right and a privilege can be accessed under the sidebar marked, "Pillars of American Liberty," or you can just click here to read it in .pdf format. If you would like to purchase the book, you can click here. Finally, I encourage everyone to treat themselves to a little enlightenment by visiting Michael's website, On a personal note, I would like to thank Michael for his generosity and patience. I would also like to thank the Washington State Libertarian Party for making this opportunity possible, Travis for his hard work and cat herding to get a bunch of disorganized college students moving in the same direction, and Morgan for providing transportation and suffering through seven hours in a car with me. That is no small feat!
