7 Year Old Julie Murphy Freed!

"What freedom is there left?" That is the big question, asked by an interested bystander in the video below. Unfortunately, the answer is that there not much freedom is left in the land of the formerly free.

The Multnomah County Supervisor interviewed fails to take responsibility for the licensing law in whose ugly web little Julie Myers was ensnared. The best you can say about the Supervisor is that he, unlike his health department inspectors, understand how dumb the enforcement action was. It is not enough for any government say that it won't enforce the law when enforcement is dumb. There are plenty of dumb enforcers, who can't or won't or don't have the capacity to exercise good judgment. The law needs to be eliminated or fixed, so it does not permit overpaid minimum-wage-mentality enforcers to do the dumb thing.

Notice that in the interview, the Supervisor NEVER says anything like, "Gee, now we know there is a problem with the law, we should fix it." Nooooo. That is not the way statists think. Statists say, in effect, trust us, we will only enforce the law in the right way.

Stop statism now. Join a tea party near you!
