There are a lot of things we want, that would violate people’s rights if we were to impose them.
Sure, get rid of the lotteries. And get rid of the welfare magnet. And stop subsidizing refugees. But then let people in unless they pose a security risk. That’s the American way. https://t.co/fkd7Truh2s

One response to ““FISA, Body Measurements, and a Bigger Nuclear Button: This Week in Spamocracy,” TODAY at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT)”

For Cuban dictators, public disorder means exercising the right to free speech.
For Cuban dictators, public disorder means denouncing the injustices that they commit every day.

For Cuban dictators, public disorder is simply to be — and want to remain — free.
The Cuban libertarians will not remain indifferent to this injustice.
Forward to freedom!”
