Getting Judge Napolitano’s “Freedom Watch” on the air

Fox News is considering putting Judge Napolitano’s “Freedom Watch” on the air. Napolitano would be a great spokesman to expose more people to libertarian ideas. Here's a sample of his show.

Please write Fox News at to ask them to put the show on the air. This is a great opportunity to get libertarian, freedom-loving ideas into the main stream media. Most freedom loving people have no love for Fox News, but encouraging them to put this show on the air will only help our cause.

Here's the email I sent them:
I wish to request that Judge Napolitano’s “Freedom Watch” be aired on Fox News Channel. I've been watching the show on youtube for a while and I absolutely am addicted to it.

There is a huge untapped freedom-minded audience that the mainstream media does not really cater to. While this started as a few hundred thousand people on the fringe following Ron Paul, it is now growing into a major nation-wide movement. Recent events only assure that this will continue. It's also likely where the Republican party will turn to in order to find a new voice now that the neo-conservative, social conservative agenda is dead.

I would definitely get my friends and family to watch the show. It would also be a chance for Fox News to change its image as being a mouthpiece for the Republican Party. Please put it on the air.

Austrian Economics in Action: Ron Paul versus Barney Frank

Here's a recent interview with Ron Paul on Morning Joe. Joe reads a prophetic speech that Ron Paul made in 2003 explaining Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's roles in the housing bubble and predicting exactly what would happen.

Here's a speech from Barney Frank in 2005 (two years later) explaining how it was impossible for there to be a housing bubble.

For those of us who subscribe to the theories of Austrian Economics, it isn't surprising that Ron Paul could see in 2003 what Barney Frank still couldn't see in 2005.

By the way, guess which one of these politicians was one of the top recipients of campaign donations from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
