Commentary, World Views and Occasional Rants from a small 'l' libertarian in Massachussetts

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

A victory for democracy in Mali. The President of the past ten years (having served his maximum two terms) has passed on the power of government to a newly elected president. It is the first time since 1960 that the transfer of leadership has been done without a coup. It is a smallvery poor country but we need to stand by every country that chooses freedom and democracy. I would rather see foreign aid money flow to Mali than any of our erstwhile 'allies' who run repressive regimes that foster hatred of America.
