Dear friend,

2009 may be a “down year” for Republicans and Democrats looking ahead to congressional and gubernatorial races in 2010, but Libertarians are on the move.

Washington Examiner editorial page editor Mark Tapscott, with the help of the Heritage Foundation, takes his pen to Obama's $1.2 trillion government spending plan, citing some of the better reasons to oppose it.

Tapscott also covers something that annoys me when anti-capitalists talk about their "green" jobs.  They're not new jobs.  They're just unstable replacements for already-existing, good-paying jobs.
