Donald Trump Denounces Wasteful Pentagon Spending, Vows Great Defense W/No Additional Spending

reason.com — For all the talk of Ted Cruz trying to reel in disappointed Rand Paul supporters, it just may be Donald Trump who ends up with a good chunk of them.

Is Keystone XL a Violation of Eminent Domain?

Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Eminent Domain, and the Keystone XL Pipeline,

reason.com — There's no question that one of the most memorable exchanges in last night's GOP debate in New Hampshire came over the question of eminent domain, the constitutionally sanctioned taking of private property for public use. Donald Trump is for robust use of eminent domain, including instances that most people would agree constitute eminent-domain abuse.

Will Ted Cruz or Donald Trump Pick Up Rand Paul's Supporters?

reason.com — The Rand Paul postmortems have been coming fast and furious. And, depending on where you stand in relation to libertarianism, they've been either gloatsome or sad. I put myself in the latter category.

"With Rand Paul’s Exit, Has the 'Libertarian Moment' Died Once Again?"

reason.com — You know the drill: Any time Rand Paul sneezes, libertarianism and the "Libertarian Moment" catches the Zika virus and croaks faster than a Bubble Boy touring an Ebola ward. So when the Kentucky senator pulled the plug on his presidential campaign, all sorts of Republicans, Democrats, conservatives, liberals, and even self-loathing libertarians started spiking the football like they were in the XFL.

How Donald Trump Killed Rand Paul’s Moment

thedailybeast.com — Recall that a year ago- even just eight months ago!-Paul wasn't simply one contender among many but the flat-out leader in most polls of GOP contenders. It surprises no one that Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, George Pataki, or even Jeb Bush (out of office for nine years and bearing the least-sellable last name in politics) failed to launch.

Two Cheers (& More!) for Rand Paul!

reason.com — With Rand Paul's suspension of his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination comes an understandable deluge of autopsies, elegies, screw-yous, and snarky subtweets. Yet I come not to bury the "libertarian-ish" Paul but to praise him. In five short years as a senator, he's already elevated a host of issues that almost would have never seen the light of day.

Brown University Renames Columbus Day "Indigenous People's Day"

reason.com — Rhode Island's Brown University has long been recognized as a punchline for virtually any and every joke about political correctness (its reputation as a safety school for the dimmer lights of the Kennedy clan also doesn't help people take it more seriously). Now the school has officially renamed Columbus Day as "Indigenous People's Day."

Rejoice: Independent Socialist Bernie Sanders & Fake Republican Donald Trump Have Incredible Showings in Iowa

reason.com — Sure, Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz won in yesterday's Iowa caucuses, the first actual votes cast in Election 2016. Each candidate has problems within their parties but each is unmistakably part and parcel of the Democratic and Republican operations (Clinton, at the very least, may be even more "establishment" than Jeb Bush, the son and brother of former presidents).
