Protection for Endangered Whistle-Blowers

In an editorial, The New York Times writes: "Congress is finally ready to stand up to the Bush administration and for those courageous federal workers who dare to reveal waste and abuse in government. The Senate has passed strong reforms to the 1989 whistle-blower protection law, counteracting the gag orders, retaliatory investigations and other harassments that have become shamefully standard practice during the last seven years."

Official Challenges Cheney's Classification Practices

Michael Isikoff reports for Newsweek: "J. William Leonard learned the hard way the perils of questioning Vice President Dick Cheney. The veteran National Archives official challenged claims by the Office of Vice President (OVP) to be exempt from federal rules governing classified information. His efforts touched off a firestorm - and a counter-strike by Cheney's chief of staff, David Addington, who tried to wipe out Leonard's job."

Study says paper trail needed in ballot box

Tennessean

12/24/07

A vocal group of voters who want more tangible voting records gained more ammunition with a report out this month that urges backing up electronic ballots with a paper trail. But the $25 million endeavor isn’t likely to take place before the 2008 presidential election as some have hoped, said state Coordinator of Elections Brook Thompson. Thompson wants to wait until federal guidelines for voting machines come down before making the big-ticket buy. ‘We need the time and money to do that,’ Thompson said. ‘To completely change out our systems may cause more problems than the potential problems you’re trying to solve’...

Ron Paul: What Does Freedom Really Mean?

Few Americans understand that all government action is inherently coercive. If nothing else, government action requires taxes. If taxes were freely paid, they wouldn't be called taxes, they'd be called donations. If we intend to use the word freedom in an honest way, we should have the simple integrity to give it real meaning: Freedom is living without government coercion. So when a politician talks about freedom for this group or that, ask yourself whether he is advocating more government action or less.
