Unleashed



The record of history is absolutely crystal clear that there is no alternative way so far discovered of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by a free enterprise system.

Calling All Liberty Minded Texans!


What Texas Can Do to Stand Against the TSA Offense to the Family, Constitutional Liberties and Basic Decency

On November 2, Governor Rick Perry was elected to an unprecedented third term to serve as governor of Texas. His campaign platform this election cycle could be summarized by this sentence: “Washington, don’t tread on the liberties of Texans.” Perry invoked the Tenth Amendment numerous times throughout his campaign, pledging to defend Texans against unlawful encroachments from Washington.

Since the election, Perry has released a new book entitled, Fed Up! in which he states: “Our fight is clear. We must step up and retake the reins of our government from a Washington establishment that has abused our trust. We must empower states to fight for our beliefs ... [and] set out to remind our fellow Americans why liberty is guaranteed in the Constitution, and take concrete steps to take back our country.”

If Gov. Perry is serious about taking “concrete steps” to “retake the reins of our government from a Washington establishment that has abused our trust,” then as the Chief Magistrate of Texas, he should defend Texans against unlawful encroachments of the TSA who are conducting unconstitutional full-body scans and invasive pat-downs, and declare that these actions will not be tolerated in Texas.

Loving the Law

...the lordship of Christ our savior is a central concept for the Christian...this is the confession that all of God's people have...And if He is the Lord, it naturally follows that he gives us something to follow...we must submit to His commands...His commands call for a distinctive and comprehensive style of living from His people. We must oppose the trend to rid Christian ethics of external rules. We must oppose that trend that says, “Rules are out of place in the Christian life.” ...Most people in the Christian church today say, “We don’t want external rules, we want internal promptings. We want the subjective bumps of the spirit, if you will, to get us going this way or that way to do what God would have us to do." Yet that simply will not square with the teaching of the Bible…What does the spirit lead all people to do in the new covenant? Romans 8:4 To fulfill the ordinance of the Law...We are to follow the Lord Jesus with a distinctive lifestyle, but that lifestyle doesn't come from inner promptings and it doesn't come from the external reading of nature. Where do we find that lifestyle? It's right here in this book. It's the commands of the Lord; Christian living. Anybody can see if you just read your bible and think about this and don't let voices all around you mislead you. Christian living calls for devotion to the Lord, devotion by observing God's will as it's found in the commandments of scripture.

"A Virtual State of Undress"

The Emperor Wants You to Have No Clothes

By Doug Phillips

In our latest installment of the “let us throw aside all principles of freedom, constitutional liberties and moral proprieties for the perception of state certified security” chronicles, we find Uncle Sam introducing full-body scanners and “nothing-is-sacred” physical body exams for Americans who travel by plane.

Those who decline to have the government take a highly intrusive and revealing image of themselves in a virtual state of undress, will be subjected to an even more intrusive search which smacks of improper groping. John Tyner learned this lesson the hard way.

My home town of San Antonio is the latest target of the new measures. Today, four full-body scanners (AIT—Advanced Imaging technology) rolled out at the San Antonio International Airport.

If this is the future, it is time for us to rethink our travel options.
