Throwing a Bone to the Opposition

You know you’re making an impact when someone feels the need to set up a website for the sole purpose of opposing you. After more than four years of working on behalf of personal liberty for the Rio Grande Foundation, I am pleased that the folks at RGF Watch have arrived on the scene for the sole purpose of telling their readers how evil and influential we are.

Of course, we’re not going anywhere, so I look forward to a lot of Watchdogging by the folks (or person) over at RGF Watch. It is good to keep people honest and point out places where their logic falls short. For example, yes, I’ve written about Texas favorably, but that’s because Texas is one of the most economically-free states (check page 4) in the nation. That has led Texas to have significantly-higher income levels than New Mexico.

Randal O’Toole’s ideas stand for themselves, read his most recent book and decide for yourself.

I could go on, but I won’t. I’ll let the folks at RGF Watch use their website to critique our work and we’ll have a fun, if not always friendly, debate.
