New Hampshire Votes for Pharmaceutical Freedom

This battle is much larger than the legal status of Ivermectin. What’s really at stake here is the idea of medical freedom itself. And freedom is a precondition for scientific inquiry and the search for the truth. It is also essential for health.

Forget About Covid, They Say

By all means, forget about Covid and live life as normally as possible in defiance of those who live to foster fear. But, never forget the disastrous Covid restrictions that created such destruction. We cannot let anyone off the hook, much less pretend that the policy disaster that created billions of personal tragedies never happened.

Emancipation From Lockdown in Florida

Governor Ron DeSantis has proven it: it is actually possible for a politician to wise up and do the right thing. In a sweeping order announced September 25, the governor has opened up the entire economy.

Liberty or Lockdown

The people with everything to gain from the lockdowns had nothing to lose; the people who had nothing to gain lost everything.
