“Friends of Freedom” are being encouraged to attend the Western Conservative Summit in Denver from July 18-20.

America has the world’s highest incarceration rate. Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate of any state in America. Indeed, Louisiana has 5 times the incarceration rate of Iran! For the full article and chart, click here.

Remember this if Bobby Jindal runs for president. (Of course his supporters will be in total denial about this, just like everyone who actually thought Mitt Romney was going to repeal Obamacare.)

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
