  • Vince Faris is beginning an effort to introduce authors to our group that have written about the three principles of fiscal responsibility, limited-government, and free markets. The first author he suggests is Frederic Bastiat. Bastiat lived in the early 1800s and is best known for his collection of writings called, The Law. The book is only about 60 pages long and is easy to read. It can be purchased at Amazon or downloaded for free as a PDF. Vince will be discussing this book in more detail at our December 2nd meeting.
  • Stuart Kennedy from the Clermont Liberty PAC gave an update about the CLPAC’s plans for this November. For the most part this election, they will only be focusing on a handful of local levy issues in our county.  Learn more and help support the CLPAC, at this link.
