The Freeman's Burden:

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

Profile in Courage

The Freeman's Burden would like to give special acknowledgment to New Mexico representative Heather Wilson. Wilson was the only Republican to vote against the recent authorization bill that also made the "Real I.D." Act law. Even Ron Paul voted with his party to force states to standard driver's licenses and link to federal data bases. Ms. Wilson, along with independent Bernie Sanders and every single Democrat in the House, took a stand for personal liberty over fear and cynicism. For the complete voting record, click here. Over in the Senate, the vote was 100-0, proving that the Senate Dems lack the courage and convictions of their House colleagues.
