Ronald Reagan famously said that the nine scariest words in the English language are "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help." There is much truth behind this wry humor. Government bureaucrats wield enormous power to take private property, or to encumber it in ways that make it effectively unusable. But what can a private citizen do against the awesome power of government? Damien Schiff, Senior Attorney at the Pacific Legal Foundation, has an answer. Mr. Schiff defends families against government infringement of landowner rights. He focuses on private property rights, especially environmental and land-use issues.

In Defense of Property Rights: Protecting Private Citizens Against Government Overreach
If you listen to liberals, you might think the Earth is constantly on the verge of destruction - and the only way to stop it is to give government more control over your life. Elite liberals are only too happy to sacrifice YOUR lifestyle choices to prevent the disaster on the horizon. And the threat has inexplicably evolved over the past several decades: remember nuclear winter, or global warming? Every time the data doesn't fit the desired conclusion, the rules of the game change. Marc Morano, founder of climatedepot.com, has done phenomenal work exposing the fraud. He is a prominent skeptic of the modern dogma that mankind (and especially the US) is making choices that are causing the climate to change. He is the author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change. Come see him live and in person, and learn how you can help defend liberty against the hoax known as Climate Change.

Father Robert Sirico is the founder of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty. In his popular book, Defending the Free Market: The Moral Case for a Free Economy, Rev. Sirico shows how a free economy is not only the best way to meet society's material needs but also the surest protection of human dignity against government encroachment. Animated by a strong sense of social justice, he began a well-intentioned but ill-conceived career in leftist activism until a serious grappling with the principles of economics (and reality) led him to reevaluate his commitments, and discover the moral foundation of a flourishing society.
