PG looks at the Libertarian Web Site for 4th of July ink

Cutting Edge: New ideas / Sharp opinions RADICAL PATRIOTS

A final thought from the Libertarian Party of Pittsburgh ( regarding this Fourth of July weekend:

'Please be careful for what it is you are waving that flag whose origins are in liberty, not global intervention and the at-home police state such folly requires.'

Then this, from H.L. Mencken:

'The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.'
