Daily Liberty Check List


What Did You Do For Liberty Today?


____ I raised it in a conversation and hopefully turned on a light in at least one person’s mind

____ I defended it when it was challenged by error

____ I improved my own knowledge of the literature of liberty so as to become a better advocate

____ I wrote a letter-to-the-editor in liberty’s defense

____ I recommended a good article, book or film that advances values consistent with a free and civil society

____ I sent a personal check to an organization I know to be working for the advancement of liberty ideas

____ I resisted temptation to subvert liberty by accepting something from government that didn’t belong to me

____ I took action to clean up my own act so that I can be a solid exemplar of the virtues necessary for a free society to flourish

____ I checked out at least one textbook my son or daughter was assigned in school, explained to my offspring any fallacies I found, and complained to the school about any that were especially egregious

____ I told at least one of my representatives that if he or she ever voted for more government again, I would pull out all the stops to see him or her defeated in the next election

____ I told my college or university alma mater that if they didn’t start hiring faculty who know how to present and defend the case for free enterprise, they’ll never, ever get another dime from me

____ I did nothing at all for liberty today, except enjoy the fruits of it while leaving the battle for its restoration and preservation to others. I was essentially a liberty freeloader today.

In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” ~ Thomas Jefferson
