Voice from the Commonwealth 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

"Your blog is bullshit"- anonymous angry French reader.
On behalf of the Government of Alberta, I am writing to express to you, and through you to President Bush and the people of the United States, my support for your nation and its leadership role in ridding the world of terrorism.
As President Bush said shortly after September 11, 2001, the war on terrorism and weapons of mass destruction is not a war the U.S. sought. In accepting this somber challenge, however, the United States has shown clarity in setting its goals and patience and resolve in achieving them. In short, the President and your nation have exemplified leadership.
This leadership has earned the deepest respect of many, many Albertans. The people of Alberta enjoy a great friendship with the United States - a friendship built on common interests, much common history, and shared values. As Americans put their lives on the line to preserve freedom and security, we feel that friendship more strongly than ever.
We join with Americans and people around the world in praying for a quick, successful end to hostilities, and a safe return home for American troops. Above all, we extend our thanks to the United States for its leadership in the war on terrorism and tyranny. Future generations will owe a great debt to those who fight today.
For your information, attached is a statement on this subject that I issued yesterday to Alberta media.
