“As an example, in Texas a licensing law was passed that requires computer-repair technicians to obtain a criminal justice degree or serve a three-year apprenticeship under a licensed private investigator.”
Brian Phillips, Individual Rights and Government Wrongs

“Without individual rights as the unifying principle of the Tea Party, the movement will simply offer re-packaged versions of the same ideas (such as “states’ rights”) advocated by the major political parties. The Founding Fathers did not respond to the abuses of King George III by proposing a variation of monarchy. They did not seek to replace one form of tyranny with another. They rejected the entire idea that anyone—the king or “the people”—should control the lives of individuals.”
Brian Phillips, Individual Rights and Government Wrongs

“Ford dominated the automobile market, the price of a Model T decreased from $850 in 1908 to $290 in 1924.”
