Wow! Thanks to The War Planner for directing our attention to this video:
Unfortunately, even some people who should know better are dismissing the assertion that redistribution of wealth by force is an affront to self-ownership tantamount to the threat of enslavement. Here's an elementary tutorial for those folks...
Self-Ownership and The Philosophy of Liberty
As usual, Ed Morrissey nails it:
"A few points should be noted. While the woman argues effectively about the 13th Amendment bar on slavery, the Fifth Amendment protection against confiscation of private property also applies, as does the Article I, Section 8 mandate on Congress to protect the ownership of “exclusive right to their Writings and Discoveries” for those in the sciences and the arts. Also, take a look at Stark’s body language in this exchange. Normally combative (and aggressively insipid in most cases), Stark seems to be collapsing in on himself as the woman builds an argument effectively enough to win applause from her fellow constituents."

Where's the Tip Jar??
Here's Forest Baker's Facebook page.
Here's some good information from Michelle Malkin...
"Chris Pareja is the independent Tea Party candidate running against Stark. He’s a father and small business owner with solid grass-roots support and a limited-government agenda. Learn more about him here and help out his campaign."
Perhaps Chris would be a good TBF nominee...
I'll have to add a clip from the new Fortney Stark video to this video:
