Brian Balfour had a column in Sunday’s Chapel Hill News about the town (and state’s) illiberal plot to take taxpayer money for politicians’ campaigns. Balfour delivers a clever money-shot via Thomas Jefferson:
Citizens receive none of the promised benefits and instead see their freedom of political expression severely limited. We should all remember what Thomas Jefferson said: "To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
Here’s another piece on the same subject by Lee Butler.
