hmm...

Check out what the next potential Attorney General of the United States said about Cato's new book, Go Directly to Jail: the Crimilzation of Almost Anything:

“The dramatic expansion of federal criminal law in recent decades has made it distressingly easy for prosecutors to ‘make a federal case’ out of matters more properly handled at the state level or by civil remedies. That phenomenon makes it more likely that ordinary businesspeople risk being jailed for run-of-the-mill commercial dealings that traditionally have been handled by contract and tort law. With this timely volume, Cato draws attention to an important—and too often ignored—legal problem.” --Miguel Estrada, Co-Chair, Appellate and Constitutional Law Practice Group, Gibson, Dunn, and Crutcher, Washington, D.C.

seems like a good sign to me

People like Miguel Estrada -- and Stephen Moore, and Ronald Reagan, and Charles Murray -- are the reason I'm proud to call myself a Libertublican.

By the way, if you look at Dick Cheney's voting record in Congress, he was 100% Libertublican. We're a burgeoning breed.
