Two Articles For Your Reading Pleasure

This morning I was privileged to read two articles before I began my workday.

The first was this month's Imprimus article by Mark Steyn, titled "Live Free or Die." It is an important reminder that the Obama administration, to an even greater extent than liberal-minded government before his time, wants to take away our freedoms and liberties and make us ever-more-dependent on the state. You can click here and choose the article (2009/04) from the list.

The second was a Wall Street Journal opinion piece titled "Chrysler and the Rule of Law." It reminds us of the importance of contracts and contract law, both as foundational to our government in particular, and to the Chrysler bankruptcy in particular. The fact that the Obama administration is trying to strong-arm companies and investors into something other than what their contracts and the laws require is deeply troubling, both in the short term and in the long term.

Happy Reading!
