Congressman Thomas Massie said every year he is extorted by his own party who require him to pay a "tax" to keep his chairmanships. Apparently the Republican leadership calls them "assessments" but either way Massie says he's not going to pay them.
Massie says he's tired of being extorted and hasn't paid any of his "assessments" despite what he calls the "Wall of Shame" which attempts to publically ridicule congressmen by posting what people owe and what they have paid.
Could Washinton be any more corrupt? Not only do they steal from us every chance they get but they also extort money from each other. Even from those in their own party!
I do have a great story today about liberty, though. In Norway, a new town is forming based on anarco principles and the founders hope it will be an example for how free people can come together and live without government and heavy regulation.
I really like this because it will bring to light some the challenges that undoubtedly arise when theory meets practice. I should give us some good practical insights into what works and what doesn't and hopefully we learn and grow in our knowledge about liberty.
