Dan, while I appreciate the effort that Cato makes. I don't think you have made a hill of beans of difference in the lives of Americans. Those in power now simply don't care what the people think, or what the Constitution says. They do what they want and to hell with all of us.

"I don't think you have made a hill of beans of difference in the lives of Americans." I strongly disagree. The impact of Informing people with the truth or at minimum alternative views is immeasurable. Whether those in power care or not has little bearing on the impact of imparting such knowledge. Once one has knowledge, it's up to them to use it.

I thank Dan very much and believe his efforts have made a big difference. He isn't a savior, he's a man making an excellent argument for liberty.

Variants of this question came from several people, perhaps because folks know that I spent more than 15 years working for Heritage.

The short answer is that I think DeMint’s move generally is a good thing.

But first, the bad news. It is unfortunate that Senator DeMint no longer will be in...
