John McClaughry: Health Care Mutual Aid
A recurring argument of those favoring a government takeover of any large sector of the economy - such as health care - is "the free market has failed!" These people are invariably oblivious to the effects of a hundred years of government intervention that has restricted what a free market might otherwise achieve.

Tiffany Bluemle and Linda Tarr-Whelan: For Economic Growth, Invest In Women And Girls
New England census data leave little doubt that future economic growth hinges upon making the most of our homegrown talent. With the region's population growth only one-third the national average, New England states have seen a 25 percent decrease in the number of young residents ages 25--34.

Bryan Golden: To Make Or Break America: 9 Proven Ways To Destroy Freedom
History teaches us two things: what works and what doesn't. After over 200 years of experience, we know definitively what has worked for America. We also know just as definitively, what has caused other countries to fail.

Rob Roper: Constitutional Amendment A Dangerous Incumbent Protection Act
On Sept. 11, 54 U.S. senators voted along party lines to amend the U.S. Constitution so as to essentially do away with the First Amendment. The effort to pass S.J. Res. 19 was led by, among others, Bernie Sanders, and it's worth noting that the Vermont General Assembly passed resolutions in support.

Deborah Bucknam: Vermont's Star Chamber Blacklists The Poor
Imagine living in a Vermont where you, without any notice, are put on a secret government blacklist so that you are prohibited for life from earning a livelihood in hundreds of occupations. Imagine the only way to be removed from the blacklist is, after seven years, to request the same government bureaucracy which accused you in the first place to expunge your record. Does this sound implausible in enlightened, liberal Vermont, which boasts a constitution providing some of the strongest protections for its people of any state constitution in the country? Not only is it possible, but it is a reality in Vermont, and similar laws have been enacted in almost every other state. Over 20,000 Vermonters, indubitably mostly poor, single parents, are on this blacklist. It is called the Child Protection Registry (different from the sex offender registry not considered here), and a person listed on the Registry has been "substantiated" for abuse of children or vulnerable adults. The names on the list are accessible to any employer who seeks to hire workers or seek volunteers to work with children or vulnerable adults.

Lee Hamilton: The President And The Congress Should Work Together On Military Intervention
In his speech last week outlining his plans to use military force against the jihadists of the Islamic State, President Obama gave Congress only passing mention. "I have the authority to address the threat from ISIL," he said. "But I believe we are strongest as a nation when the president and Congress work together."

Allen Gilbert: Constitution Day: A Time For Two Celebrations
It's a good thing we have a day to celebrate our U.S. Constitution. The document was a marvelous creation when drafted more than two centuries ago, it continues to serve as the cornerstone of our country's laws, and it's the document a citizen turns to when his or her individual liberties are violated. "It's my constitutional right!" -- a phrase we hear often when people call the ACLU -- is, in our democratic society, the way we express that most basic challenge to authority -- "They can't do that!"

Sen. Jane Kitchel: Protecting Children Within The Safeguards Of The Constitution
For many Americans the U.S. Constitution is viewed as a musty document that they vaguely remember from high school history class. However, the reality is that our Constitution permeates our daily lives, establishing the limits of government and protecting the rights of individual Americans. These Constitutional boundaries routinely influence the work of the Vermont Legislature as it grapples with legal issues that are increasing complex in nature.

John W. Whitehead: An Unbearable And Choking Hell: The Loss Of Our Freedoms In The Wake Of 9/11
Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.
