THE LIBERTY NET is a profoundly optimistic intellectual phenomenon.

Check in this week and share your uncensored thoughts!

Here’s a brief selection of some of the topics debated this time on amateur radio’s historic Liberty Net:
• As America’s bankruptcy looms, why are the criminals in Washington talking about cutting pensions and necessary services by billions, but are not discussing cutting foreign aid by so much as a dime? (13 minutes)
• When so-called conservatives pitched a fit over Obama’s signing of the renewed “USA Patriot Act” with an auto-pen — but made no objection to the Act itself — it was a clear sign that conservatism is dead, dead, dead. (24 minutes)
