    I found the following blog post over at Asymmetrical Information to be a very succinct and interesting read of just how liberty and economics interact.

    whats that quote,

    "Remember that a Government Big Enough to Give You Everything You Want is Also Big Enough to Take Away Everything You have"

    The more we are depandent on the Federal Govt the more they can shape how we view the relationship btwn Govt and its people.

    Both Por-Govt parties know this.

    If you have no economic independence you have no independence at all.

    How free were you when you were 12 and your parents controlled all the finances?

    It works the same way with governments.

    Also consider how many expensive and time and resource-consuming hurdles you have to go through, courtesy of the government, to even sell a product you craft yourself. And for NO reasons whatsoever to do with public safety. Health and safety of consumer laws are probably around 5% or less of what someone encounters when trying to sell a product or service. The rest is all red tape and taxes.

    Good topic, Justin. It has its basis in Deu 24:6.
